communigate pro and openvms
CommuniGate Pro and OpenVMS
  • Is the OpenVMS Corporate Unified Messaging Server on Integrity and AlphaServer systems
    • This product is fully endorsed by the HP Corporate OpenVMS Group
    • CommuniGate Pro, featured in the HP OpenVMS Integrity production launch video first aired in January ‘05
  • It is being marketed as the replacement for ALL-IN-1 and Office Server systems
  • OpenVMS has a very close partnership with CommuniGate Systems encompassing:
    • the strategic relationship, technical support, benchmarking, marketing and partner programs
  • With the assistance of OpenVMS Management and Ambassadors, CommuniGate Systems are signing up OpenVMS Partners and System Integrators to support CommuniGate Pro on OpenVMS around the World
all in 1 office server communigate pro interoperability options
ALL-IN-1/Office Server & CommuniGate Pro Interoperability options

Options include:

  • Access from multiple Web Browsers to both ALL-IN-1/Office Server - via the Web Interface - and CommuniGate Pro
  • IMAP4 and POP3 access to both Office Server and CommuniGate Pro
  • Access from the native MS Outlook Client to both ALL-IN-1/Office Server - using the HP MAPI Driver - and CommuniGate Pro – using the CGP MAPI Connector
  • Ability to install CommuniGate Pro and ALL-IN-1/Office Server side-by-side on mixed OpenVMS AlphaServer and Integrity clusters, easing interoperability, data access and migration
office server message migration to communigate pro
Office Server message Migration to CommuniGate Pro
  • It is possible to move messages from Office Server V5.0 and V6.0 folders to CommuniGate Pro using the IMAP Servers of the two products and the CommuniGate Pro IMAP Migration Utility
    • ALL-IN-1 systems must be upgraded to Office Server V5.0 to access the IMAP Server. This upgrade is minor and leaves the File Cabinet completely untouched
  • CommuniGate Pro supports the flat file structure - .mbox; the .mdir structure that stores messages in multiple directories and MultiMailbox where users can be assigned both in different folders/mailboxes
  • .mdir also supports the shared storage model whereby messages for multiple users are only stored once with pointers to each user.
    • Fortunately, this is the mechanism utilized by Office Server

  • “Dead” devices (switched off, removed from coverage area) are unregistered automatically.
  • Incoming calls are directed to a user (a person), not to a device.
  • Incoming calls are forwarded to all devices registered for that user, all these devices start to “ring”.
  • Registration parameters: video calls are not forwarded to a text-only device, IM “calls” are not forwarded to device w/o IM, etc.
