The Active Login Manager Express (ALM Express) removes the need to manually log in and log out from your Cisco IP telephone
Log in and log out
With ALM Express it is not needed anymore to manually log on and log off from your Cisco IP Phone. Login and logout are fully automated by ALM. Additionally ALM adds more control to the log on and log off process, so it improves usability of your Cisco IP Phone Extension Mobility. ALM will automatically log off the desktop telephone at specific events, for example when the PC is locked or when the screensavers starts. The user or its administrator can fully customize the ALM behaviour.
Extension Mobility – Hoteling – Hot desking – Free seating
ALM works on top of Cisco’s Extension Mobility. These mobility features are available for every Unified Communications Manager Express (CME) version. By using standard XML based API’s based, ALM can be used within every Cisco Unified Communications network.
ALM has three important benefits for Cisco IP Telephony:
- Users are better reachable: ALM makes it easy to check one’s status for e.g. attendants and receptionists on the internal telephone lists, within Microsoft Office Communicator Server (OCS) and Live Communications Server (LCS) networks.
- Business telephony is more secure: Your business telephony will become more secure by preventing unauthorized phone calls.
- It makes users more flexible: Users can leave or enter your desk without worrying about access to their desk phones.
ALM Express is a client-only application so there is no need to add or invest in new (server) hardware. Deployment of ALM to your existing network is fully scriptable so configuration of ALM is an easy task.
