Supported ShoreTel releases: 12.0 and higher.
The ShoreTel HQ Server runs on a Windows server and manages the voice communications solution by
distributing call control intelligence to voice switches. In addition, it distributes voice applications, including
voice mail systems and automated attendants. The ShoreTel database is also located on the HQ server.
For the ShoreTel Communicator Integration Solution, licenses are installed on the HQ server.
The (optional) ShoreTel DVS Server allows you to run ShoreTel in a distributed environment, providing
faster local queries, reduced network traffic, improved scalability, and reliable telephony services for a
remote location during WAN outages.
For information on ShoreTel system requirements, refer to the ShoreTel Planning and Installation Guide.
You configure and manage the integrated components of the ShoreTel Unified Communications Platform
using ShoreTel Director; see the ShoreTel Administration Guide for specifics.
