The Service Provider Platform (SPP) is an Operations Support System (OSS) that can easily be linked to your Business/Billing Support System (BSS) for provisioning and/or invoicing. Of course it works perfectly without the use of a BSS bringing you all the great help in managing the operations of your VoIP business. The SPP greatly reduces your OPEX when you are scaling up the Axeos PBX platform and Standalone PBX's. You can easily manage many servers that each hold many virtual PBX's. The SPP can manage all your Axeos Standalone units in the field as well making it a great versatile tool for central management.
With SPP you can easily create,manage and change licenses of the PBX's giving you easy and tight control of functions enabled for your end-customers. You can fully automate your invoicing giving the freedom and flexibility to your end-customers.
SPP is extremely powerful in enabling your resellers by giving them their own view into SPP and allowing them to do all that is granted by you via the enhanced role based management functions. Your reseller can immediately serve and manager their own customers which greatly improves customer satisfaction and drives down your cost on your technical staff. You stay in full control and can easily manage all aspects with a good intuitive graphical interface.
The SPP main task is to enable the administrator to easily manage the Axeos hosted (virtual) PBX platform and standalone units. As the SPP administrator you can manage all vPBX servers, using a graphical user interface. Within a few clicks you create, edit or remove new hosted or standalone PBX.
The main functions are:
Connect via SSH
For those who do not wish to use the great functions of SPP can still manage their Axeos Hosted platform via easy menus on the command line. This gives you all the basic functions to do your basic management. A great and cost effective way when you start with a manageable amount of PBX's to control. Connect to the SPP server using a SSH client. Whenever you want you can upgrade to SPP without any effort.
Examples of SSH clients are:
Log in with ssh as admin@<ip_address> server. You now have “vpbx>” as prompt.
Tip: type “help” of “help command” for simple hints
The commonly used commands are: new, halt, start and destroy
Creating a new vpbx
You must now start the pbx to make it really functional. After you have started then go to the admin interface and add a license so the vpbx is being activated. Otherwise the default license is active. Do set the firewall rules and check the firewall rules are set! Default firewall rules are loaded based on template.
stop a vpbx
start a vpbx
remove a vpbx
You cannot undo this operation! Everything is really gone forever if you do not have a backup of the config.
Connect via GUI
The best way to manage your hosted platform is using the GUI. You can manage all high level aspects by using your browser.
Login to the SPP using the administrator username and password provided by Axeos and get started!
