Switchvox SMB 5.9 Release Notes

Enhancements

The Switchboard includes a new WebRTC feature-preview: a Video Call panel in the Switchboard. The panel offers a WebRTC video communication between two Switchvox users.

If both people are using the supported web browser (Chrome 35.x), and have an attached camera and microphone, a video call can be initiated from a Phonebook entry in the Switchboard. For details, see the knowledgebase article.

Issues Resolved

  • High memory usage generated under specific circumstances has been reduced.
  • Switching to E1 for a telephony card now correctly manages the channel count.
  • A phone extension now correctly receives an email message when an inbound fax to the extension is not saved in the voicemail mailbox.
  • Alert Notification emails are no longer sent against a false alarm of a problem storing voicemail.
