General Information

The unified messaging manufacturer serVonic now offers the new IXI-Operator software. As Windows-based switchboard, the IXI-Operator allows a professional administration and organization of incoming calls. A clearly designed interface with all the relevant information, intelligent search options as well as an effective queue management turn the PC-workstation into a professional and powerful switchboard. The operator can be applied as stand-alone solution.

The IXI-Operator software is structured clearly and simply. An interface that can be handled intuitively allows transferring calls shortly in a professional and competent way – without putting a lot of effort in training. Incoming calls are managed in a waiting list automatically. The indication of caller data and waiting time allow an easy call- and priority-management. The respective call is accepted by mouse-click or keystroke. Extensions, names and descriptions can be searched via an automatically activated search field. When the wanted call partner is found, the calls can be transferred either “with announcement” or “blind”. If the partner is not available, a notification can be sent by e-mail. The internal users can be administered in the IXI-Operator directly or can be taken over from a third-party system like Active Directory or by CSV-import. Caller identification is integrated as well. The transfer features of the innovaphone PBX are controlled directly from the IXI-Operator by means of TAPI

Settings for innovaphone Pbx, in the IXI-Operator Manager


Chose the innovaphone TSP as Tapi TSP for the IXI-Operator

There is no need to configure a Wartefeld/waiting-field

Enable Besetztlampenfeld/Busy Lamp Field if the client should have a BLF.

The Routepoint is an innovaphone Waiting queue - where all the incoming calls for the Operator goes.

The Agents/Vermittlungsagenten can have any Login Name/forename/surname (this is only for the IXI-Operator Client)

The Extension must be the same as the Phone extension that is for the Operator and is also in the group of the defined route point ( innovaphone waiting queue )

Installation & Configuration of the innovaphone components

The IXI-Operator connects via Tapi to the innovaphone Pbx.

So install the innovaphone TSP on the IXI-Operator Server.

When installing the innovaphone TSP it is important to select "Control and monitor all users" in the setup.


To Monitor all users (e.g in the busy Lamp field )then there must be a user configured in the Pbx that can monitor all users.

Here it is the _TAPI_ User Object


The _TAPI_ user object is also in the group Tapi ( active enabled).

Be sure that all users are in the same group as the active Group of the _TAPI_ User object.

Product Test

Application 1

  • supported transfer methods:
    • transfer with consultation - yes
    • transfer with alerting only - yes
    • blind transfer - yes


The IXI-Operator is a easy to install, with an English and German client software. The client has an intuitive and easy to use front mask. Anyway there are still some features missing as recall information's, Busy lamp field configuration (e.g in groups), information on the Busy Lamp field if there is a call forward defined on the client. That all should be implemented in the next release of the IXI-Operator
