It was only natural that the European Institute of Oncology, a non-profit research organization for cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, also be a pioneer in managing its communication.
The ACD directs its calls from the Cisco UCM to operators equipped with Imagicle operator consoles who see the caller's name and details in real time thanks to integration with company directories.
Telephone traffic of the 500 users is constantly monitored by the accounting & billing solution, and all users can now send and receive faxes directly from their computer, smartphone or tablet.

In creating the new telephone infrastructure based on Avaya Aura, serving the various sites and operating units, with a total of some 10,000 users, the government of Italy's richest and most heavily populated region chose Imagicle for its UC apps.
In particular, thanks to Imagicle solutions, the Lombardy region got rid of all of its traditional fax machines, virtualizing the service and integrating it with multifunction printers provided to employees.
At the same time, the telephone traffic control solution was used to perform in-depth analysis of all numbering plans.

Imagicle Fax Server uses Cisco UC to send and receive faxes using SIP and T.38 protocols with automatic fall back on g711 pass-through. Configured like an ordinary SIP trunk on Cisco UC, with no need for additional licenses.
Imagicle Fax Server automatically manages outgoing queues with retransmission. Supports any case for PSTN access, on H.323, SIP or MGCP gateway or directly via SIP connection with provider servers.
Imagicle Fax Server becomes a highly reliable solution with the addition of a back-up server to guarantee service continuity with no need for manual interventions (hot redundancy).
Can also support hot redundancy with an additional back-up server to guarantee service continuity with no need for manual interventions. Fax services are always guaranteed because the servers are based on auto-synchronized databases that can also work in disaster recovery environments (on a WAN).

Our applications are ready to run on any virtualization environment as VMware, Microsoft, etc.
If you install Imagicle applications on a Virtual Machine, you must allocate the amount of RAM, CPU power and disk space stated in the server table. The virtual hardware resources must be reserved, that is, they must not be shared with other virtual machines. No limit must be set for CPU utilization.
Data storage requirements
The suite installation includes Microsoft® SQL Server® 2017 Express Edition, offering top security, improved performance and 10 GB database. The update of existing installations, automatically upgrades to the latest version, in a transparent operation for the system administrator.
The applications store configuration and data in the SQL 2017 Express Edition, with the following storage considerations:
Call Analytics – requires 700 MB per million calls to keep online for reporting
Digital Fax – requires 1 GB per million of faxes sent/received to keep online for retrieval.
The fax attachment is stored on the file system (not in the DB) and requires an average of 100 KB each one (100 GB of disk space per million of faxes)
Contact Manager – 3 KB per each contact in the directories (600 MB per 200,000 contacts)
Advanced Queueing – requires 1.5 GB per million of calls treated and agent detail records
CTI – Attendant Console – requires 0.5 GB per million of calls kept for the clients registry.
SSAM – no DB usage. The messages are stored on the file system, with an average of 3 MB for each recorded message
Call recording requires 350 MB DB space per million calls for metadata. Recordings are saved on the server filesystem. About 300KB of disk space for each recording minute is required on the Imagicle server disk. Having 500GB hard disk, it is possible to store up to 300,000 call recordings, 5 minutes each, which corresponds to 1 year «always on» recordings for 20 agents. It is possible to export recording to external Network File System for longer retention.
Users and other apps require a very small amount of space in the DB, negligible for the DB and Hard Drive storage calculation.
From Imagicle release 2019.Summer.1, we embed MS SQL Server 2017 Express Edition, which is not supported on Windows Server 2008 OS.
If you need more than 10GB online data (Large business scenario), a Microsoft® SQL Server commercial license must be used (not included with the product).
For Microsoft SQL license considerations, you will need as many CALs as the number of users accessing the Imagicle applications or the core/processor license that includes unlimited CALs. The applications can be installed on the same server running Microsoft SQL Server or on a different machine (a dedicated machine is not required).
Client - hardware and software requirements
CPU dual-core or higher, 2GB RAM (PC), 4GB RAM (Mac),
OS MS Windows Vista/7/8/10 32-64 bit
macOS ver. 10.12 (Sierra) and above. 32 or 64bit (valid only for Cisco UC and CrossPlatform Suites)
19” Monitor, 1280 x 1024 or above
