Vine Telephony Architecture

Vine telephony is a separately licensed component only available to users included in the Vine Phone Users license group.

TAPI Support

The support of desk phones in Vine is based on Microsoft Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI) which is available on all modern Microsoft Windows systems.

Vine does not give commands directly to the phone device. Instead, it interacts with the TAPI layer which hides all hardware specific interface details from Vine. The TAPI layer negotiates with the hardware specific TAPI driver that usually comes with the hardware device. This architecture ensures that Vine supports any TAPI compatible device:

TAPI is used as platform independent telephony solution
