Simplified installation and setup lowers the cost of sales and maintenance.‚ Samsung’s SCM Express single server configuration includes: ¬∑ Voicemail ¬∑ Unified Communications (IP-UMS) ¬∑ Call centre client by Samsung ¬∑ 64-party conference bridge ¬∑ Mobex ¬∑ Fixed Mobile Client (FMC) ¬∑ IP Telephony ¬∑ Software upgradable to 50 000 users With SCM Administrator, SCM Express integrates all administrative functionality for system database applications and troubleshooting so that systems can be managed effectively and efficiently. SCM Administrator ensures total business network quality with high reliability. Also, real-time service quality for IP telephony resolves problems faster – before they become problems. SCM can support redundancy and survivability, it can be configured for full “Active Standby”” but, if there is a loss of service from the SCM, the media gateway would provide survivability so that users can continue to communicate. In addition, SCM Express supports redundant NIC. High Availability redundancy provides seamless service in virtually any situation.

It is a control module without uplifting existing hardware to expand current PABX offerings. SCM Express is designed for midsize business customers in any vertical that values mobility and the flexibility to be fully connected and functional on the road or at home office, those requiring between 100 – 500 extensions with a maximum of 3000.
