Call Control provides various options to control calls via hardware button presses. Please compare the Call Control documentation for details.
Call Control is demanding to integrate but suitable even for complex use cases.
|Easy Call Control||✔||
Easy Call Control is an optional helper module for the integration of Call Control.
It is the recommended way of to integrate Call Control for standard use cases.
|Camera Features||✔||Controls features like:
Telemetry can provide a deep insight into the use of Jabra devices. It is based on data points delivered by compatible devices.
All supported data points are documented in the Telemetry Data Point documentation.
Device Settings control various settings of Jabra devices.
This feature can improve user experience and call efficiency for specific use cases.
Button Customization takes control of busy lights and programmable buttons in Jabra devices.
Customized buttons and busy lights can speed up and simplify common user interactions with applications.
Device Discovery identifies a Jabra device, its serial number and its affiliation to a specific user or PC.
Areas of application:
This feature is especially useful in enterprise environments with a large number of devices.
|WebHID for Call Control||✔||This supports direct interaction for Call Control with Jabra devices via a browser-client.
Example SDK Gen.2 (without WebHID support):
You develop a browser-based application based on SDK Gen. 2. Every client, that uses this application, needs to install additional software locally (Jabra Browser Extension and Jabra Chrome Host).
Example SDK Gen.3 (with WebHID support):
You develop a browser-based application based on SDK Gen.3. All clients can use your browser-based application without additional software.
