OSBiz X8We have supplied the X8's predecessor, the HiPath 3800 for many years.  The X8 draws on the robust design and immense power of HiPath and adds the well proven applications of the Openscape UC platforms.  We think the result is a real winner.  Being able to supply a telephone system to work with existing telephone cables, but that will also support the latest IP handsets and applications means we can configure this system to be perfect for you and your business.

Technical Details


The Unify X8 is the largest of the OpenScape Business family of hybrid gateways and as well as 60 channels of SIP and 500 IP handsets, it supports up to 128 channels of ISDN lines, up to 328 digital or analogue handsets, etc.  Not only does this allow you to use a mix of ISDN2, ISD30, analogue and SIP trunks, it allows you to grow the system right up to a fully featured OpenScape UC platform. 


The flexibility of OpenScape Business X8 is especially obvious in mixed infrastructures where VoIP is installed but traditional analogue and digital telephones, fax machines, and modems are still in use. Siemens X8 supports any combination of IP, analogue, and digital telephones, as well as PC clients and cordless phones.

As a modular communication platform, the Unify X8 is able to satisfy the requirements of companies with stringent demands. It is a flexible and scalable solution that can be combined with an incredibly broad range of applications and features and coordinated with the individual requirements of your company.


The X8 is an innovative and flexible convergence platform that perfectly adapts communications to your company structure. Whether your aim is to enhance growth or seamlessly integrate branch offices or mobile staff, the expansion stages of the Siemens X8 are the perfect solution for optimizing costs and business processes.

Enhanced features of traditional telephony combined with applications such as CTI (Computer Telephony Integration), UCD (Uniform Call Distribution), and Unified Messaging support all communications processes at the workplace and in all work environments. If an extension is left unattended, the Team function or integrated voicemail ensures that no call is missed.

And the X8’s user-friendly executive/secretary function ensures the smooth flow of communication at attendant or secretary stations in the reception area where multiple communications processes converge. Integrated call distribution ensures reachability and guarantees fast customer contact. All these factors combine to make telephony not only easier to use, but also more efficient.

VoIP - Internet telephony

Nowadays, there are more network providers offering telephony services than ever before. As the de-facto standard for Internet telephony, induces Internet telephony service providers (ITSP) to provide attractive applications and business models.

With its SIP interfaces, Unify X8 helps to converge network services and to drastically cut communication costs. Unify OpenScape Business X8 already supports new SIP options, including SIP phones or user and system connections for Internet telephony.

With Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and authentication applications, you can shape your company securely for the future with the X8, without any compromises in terms of security.


Lower costs

Consolidating voice and data communication in an IP-based network not only enables the deployment of applications that decrease company call charges and hardware costs, it may also increase productivity. A separate voice network no longer needs to be installed and maintained, resulting in decreased outlay for administration and maintenance for systems and applications, as these tasks are now centralized. In addition, existing Internet connections can be optimized for calls to the public telephone network, thereby reducing the costs for separate ISDN lines.

Flexible configuration

The “One wire to the desk” concept allows additional telephones to be connected via an existing LAN cable. Integrated miniswitches are used for connecting the PC. Power over Ethernet switches supply power to IP telephones without the need for additional PSUs. Convergent platforms allow DSL and ISDN connections to be combined. ISDN connections can be configured as backups in case a fault occurs in the IP connection to the provider. They can also be configured as additional channels, for example, for fax machines or modems
