Aastra MX‑ONE™ Telephony System
Aastra MX-ONE is a complete IP-based communications system. Not only does MX-ONE provide excellent voice communications, it also provides the necessary applications
to offer true mobility and Unified Communications.
MX-ONE is based on an open software and hardware environment, using standard servers with a LINUX™ SUSE operating system.
With the latest release of MX-ONE, customers can benefit from MX-ONE Telephony Server’s capacity increase, multiple gateways addressed by one server, a new CSTA V3 protocol, an expanded numbering plan, faster upgrade and redundancy feature enhancements.
The Management solution continues to be improved with its single point of entry approach, offering an efficient way of managing the system.MX-ONE Telephony System Building Blocks
The MX-ONE Telephony System consists of two basic components:
MX-ONE Telephony Server and MX-ONE Media Gateway.
MX-ONE Server Options
High-capacity Telephony Server software, running on a standard server platform, can handle up to 15,000 SIP users and 15 media gateways. Servers and media gateways can be combined to form either a complete centralized system or a large multi-server distributed system over a geographically dispersed area. Up to 124 servers can be combined in a single system with up to 500,000 users.
Turn-key server solution, based on HP ProLiant servers. Both the LINUX™ operating system and Telephony Server application software are installed and preconfigured.
Main technical characteristics:
A signed software image that can be installed on an HP ProCurve ONE zl Services Module.
- Intel® Xeon® 5540 Quad Core Processor, 2.40 GHz
- 6 GB RAM, 72 GB HDD, redundant fans
- Redundancy options:
- RAID hot-plug disk drives
- Redundant power supply
Software-only is available for use with general standard servers. For more detailed information.
Aastra Server Unit - Embedded (ASU-E)
ASU-E is available for both MX-ONE Lite version as well as MXONE Classic. It can also be used to host a variety of applications, such as messaging applications or any other application you may want to install. The server board requires little space and only 35 W of power. It is able to monitor CPU temperature and send an alarm if the predefined level has been exceeded.
MX-ONE Media Gateways
- Core™ 2 Duo Processor 2.26 GHz
- 4 GB RAM, expandable up to 8 GB
- One SATA HDD with 160 GB, expandable to 2x160 GB SATA HDD (the HDD can be changed to SSD, 80 GB each)
- SW RAID 1 support
- 2 Ethernet ports
- 1 VGA port
- 4 USB 2.0 ports
MX-ONE Media Gateways come in different configurations and sizes, offering scalability and flexibility to meet the needs of enterprises. The new Media Gateway hardware introduced in the latest MX-ONE version, MGU (Media Gateway Unit), provides the opportunity for a multi-gateway configuration, i.e. up to 15 MGUs can be associated to one server.
This is a significant change as it eliminates the previous one-to-one relationship between server and media gateways. There are two different versions of MX-ONE Media Gateways:
3U chassis, more suitable for the IP environment and branch office scenario with the space for one MGU board, one ASU-E plus one board, or three boards if an external server is used.
7U chassis, targeted mainly for the mixed environments with space for 16 boards. MX-ONE Classic MGU
Media Gateway Unit (MGU) main characteristics:
MX-ONE Management Suite

- 256 RTP resources (concurrent calls)
- Used for MX-ONE Lite and MX-ONE Classic
Aastra MX-ONE offers a complete range of applications for administrators and end-users. From the perspective of end-user administrators, MX-ONE appears as one system. MX-ONE Manager is a complete management suite consisting of: MX-ONE Manager Telephony System – For configuration of system functions

Powerful range of features
Support for full range of SIP terminals and softphones, as well as H.323 terminals, Mobile Extension, Wi-Fi, DECT and TDM (analog and digital) terminals 500 system and end-user features, such as different types of diversion, free seating and executive/secretary services Attendant services, like PC-based workstation, directory search, as well as traditional services including camp-on and busySystem based services such as IP and QSIG based networking with full feature transparency, routing, number analysis, call information logging, CSTA version 3 and a wide range of applications Full support for SIP trunking with certification from many service providers worldwide
IP/SIP extension implementation in MX-ONE is designed in accordance with the HLR/VLR architecture used in mobile networks. An IP user has a “home server” that corresponds to the HLR (Home Location Register) in mobile networks.
The user can be handled by any server in the system as long as the home server can be accessed. A VLR (Visitor Location Register) is created in the visited server and part of the user data is copied from the HLR to the VLR.
The Gatekeeper/SIP Proxy database redundancy feature in MX-ONE allows an IP user to register with any available server in the network and the IP user can be reached by incoming calls even if the “home server” is out of service.
Server bonding redundancy
By server bonding, two or more Ethernet interfaces look like one logical interface to the MX-ONE server, all in order to improve availability and performance. Thanks to this method, MX-ONE offers a higher level of reliability. In the case one interface or switch fails the other one takes over.
UC deployments with third-party products
CSTA V3 – XML support
The latest version of MX-ONE supports CTI monitoring in accordance with Computer-Supported Telecommunications Applications 3, also called CSTA Phase 3. The CSTA Phase 3 is based on the ECMA-269 standard. The existing CSTA Phase 1/TSAPI implementation is also supported, as was the case in previous releases.
Microsoft® OCS 2007 R2/ Exchange 2010 UM certification
MX-ONE Telephony Server can be integrated with the Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 as a complementary solution, providing end-user services like instant messaging and integrated presence.
Certification between MX-ONE Telephony Server and Microsoft® OCS 2007 R2 is based on direct SIP connection between the servers. MX-ONE Telephony Server can also be integrated with the Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010 UM as a complementary solution providing end user services like voice mail and auto attendant.
IBM® Lotus Sametime
MX-ONE has been verified with IBM Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony (SUT1) middleware, offering a direct SIP integration between MX-ONE and IBM Lotus Sametime.
