Enhancements in QMS 8.1
Enghouse QMS v8.1 Supports Native Microsoft Teams Compliance Recording
Businesses that require Microsoft Teams compliance recording can now use QMS to record using the native Teams recording APIs, as well as through indirect methods, such as recording supported sessions border controllers used in Direct Routing, or via Enghouse Communications Centre. The new recording API requires QMS to be hosted in Microsoft Azure. For this reason, Enghouse now offers customers three recording methods for Teams, providing both hosted and on-premise options.
(To learn more about our Enghouse Teams Contact Centre, visit our Teams Contact Centre page and watch our video).
Partners who host QMS will benefit from the new multi-tenant functionality added to QMS, which provides better economies of scale when hosting QMS for multiple customers.
QMS now supports the Ribbon SBC, commonly used in Cloud PBX environments, such as Microsoft Teams Direct Routing. The recording method uses the SIPREC protocol and QMS supports this method on a number of SBCs and gateway devices.
The QMS packet sniffing engine now natively shipping with the product is NPCAP, replacing the legacy WinPCap product and therefore improving the security of this QMS component.
A new QMS System Monitoring Guide has been created to enable customers to improve knowledge on monitoring and logging of QMS for fault tracking and identification.
