Galaxy Mini – Overview

The Galaxy Mini is a hardware platform that is part of the E-MetroTel overall server portfolio. It is designed for customers requiring 32 stations or fewer.

Galaxy Mini Software: Feature and Applications


Running the same UCX software as other E-MetroTel server platforms such as the UCX250 and UCX450, it delivers an optimized set of UCX capabilities to the small and very small business market, including feature functionality normally associated with enterprise businesses such as:

  • Auto-Attendant (IVR) answers incoming lines with your personalized greeting tailored for the time of day, day of week, holiday schedule and calling line ID. Custom Call Routing routes incoming calls via a routing tree that determines how calls are directed (“For customer service, press 1…”). Can include multiple levels. Caller can self-direct to exactly the right destination.
  • Integrated Voicemail stores, forwards and delivers voice messages to the user, to groups, or for broadcast to all users. Users can record their own personalized greetings and have access to their messages from anywhere. And mailbox space is virtually unlimited.
  • Voice Mail to Email delivers voice mail via email messages to your computer and mobile device so you can manage all your communications in one location.
  • Fax Detection / Virtual Fax – there is no need to have a traditional fax machine as faxes can be both sent and received electronically using this feature. You can also configure your inbound route to auto-detect a fax connection.
  • Meet-Me Conferencing Easy-to-use functionality allows parties to establish a teleconference by calling in to a specified telephone number and extension. Meet-Meet Conferencing includes a full set of user controls that enable the meeting chair to start, stop, and control the conference. This makes it ideal for larger conferences, especially those involving outside suppliers or customers.
  • Shared Call Appearances (SCA) allow calls to ring on multiple sets, be placed on hold, and be picked up at any other set with that same Shared Call Appearance 
  • Dozens of other telephony features:
    • Transfer, Call Hold, Call Forward, Cellphone Twinning, Last Number Redial, Paging (see note below), Call Pickup, Autodial – External & Internal, Do Not Disturb, Hotdesking, and many more.

These features are described and are accompanied by explanations of how to configure and assign them in the UCX Features documentation.  For example, you can click on this link to review information on the Voicemail to Email functionality.


The UCX software on other hardware platforms supports a number of applications that are that are separately licensed and are primarily designed and suitable for large enterprise customers. One exception to this is the use of Microsoft TAPI, which enables Microsoft Windows PCs to be able to communicate with the UCX software and initiate outbound calls and hang up calls using Microsoft Outlooks, Microsoft Dialer, or any other TAPI compatible applications. It also supports receiving inbound calls with basic caller information on incoming calls so that some TAPI aware applications can use this information to do screen-popup, displaying caller information on the screen. Since this functionality is widely used in small businesses such as law offices and medical clinics, this licensed functionality is available on the Galaxy Mini platform.  A full description of the functionality and how to configure it in the UCX software can be found in the TAPI Application document.

Because the Galaxy Mini’s overall functionality has been optimized to deliver the highest value functionality on a cost effective platform for small businesses, some of the standard UCX software features are not available.  The following features are not supported:

  • Call Recording
  • InfinityOne
  • Queues/Agents/Supervisors
  • Other licensed UCX applications (Call Center Reporting, Enhanced Archive, External CDR Interface, Hospitality, Microsoft Lync, Notifier, Scheduled Announcement, High Availability Replicated Configuration, Wallboard)

Also note that the maximum number of extensions in a Page Group on the Galaxy Mini is 16.

FXO and FXS Plug-in Modules

While the Galaxy Mini can function as a pure IP Telephony platform (stations and trunks), the hardware is designed to support up to two plug-in interface modules to allow combinations of analog trunks and analog phones.

The following Plug-in modules are available for connecting to analog trunks (FXO ports) and analog phones (FXS ports):
