Intel UNITE

From version 8.4.15 of Door Tablet the system offers integration with the Intel UNITE platform Enterprise deployment.

Please note the following:
  1. Door Tablet uses an Intel UNITE Plugin that is installed on your Intel UNITE Hubs
  2. Plugins are only enabled when you deploy Intel UNITE using Enterprise deployment. You will therefore need an operational UNITE system which uses IIS and SQL Server
  3. In the Door Tablet server, in the system profile, you need to declare that Intel UNITE is in use in some of your rooms, if not all
  4. In room records you will need to specify the IP address of the Intel UNITE hub for each meeting space
  5. Although Door Tablet end point may run on browsers, you can only use

Activating the Door Tablet Plugin for Intel UNITE
Follow these step when installing the plugin on your hubs.
  1. Download the plugin from the Door-Tablet.com web site. The plugin is called DooTabletPlugin.dll
  2. Copy the file to the Plugins folder on the hub, and if its the first plugin, ensure that CFCPlugin.dll file is in the same folder. This dll is installed when installing Intel UNITE on the Hub
  3. As the plugin communicates with the Door Tablet end point over HTTP, the plugin needs to be authorised to use an HTTP port and URL. See below.
  4. On the Intel UNITE Enterprise server, you will need to register the plugin and add to it its Digital Signature, embedded in the plugin. See below.
  5. As the Hub will have a firewall on, you need to add a policy to allow communication using port 13521. See below.

Authorise the plugin to respond to Door Tablet end-point
For this purpose issue the following command on the hub, with administrator rights:
netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:13521/doortablet user=DOMAIN\user
In the above line replace DOMAIN\user with the administrator name of your hub. You can find the name if logged in as such and in the command prompt typed "whoami". For example, on one of our Hubs we issued the following command:
netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:13521/doortablet user=NUC1\admin




Firewall
To ensure that Door Tablet can connect to the plugin, the firewall on the Hub needs to have port 13521 open to allow connection from our end point.




End result...


Update the server with the plugin Digital Signature
You need to register the Door Tablet plugin so that it is authorised to run on the hub. If you use just the "Default" profile, update it. If you use other profiles, update them with the same Property.
Key: PluginCertificateHash_DoorTabletPlugin
Signature: 49274f9393ae38632bb302d9cf7e653f50a3d350



On your Profile you should see this result:


Please note that when we release a new Plugin the signature may change. To get the signature of the Plugin, follow this process:
  1. Locate the plugin .dll file
  2. Right-click the file
  3. Go to properties
  4. Click digital signatures, and then click details
  5. Click view certificates and locate the thumbprint entry



Enabling Door Tablet to work with Intel UNITE
Note: To use this integration option you must have a licence to the Door Tablet Enterprise Server



And enable the Intel UNITE integration


Select the rules you wish to use. We suggest you turn them all on.


Configure meeting spaces where the UNITE system is installed
The main requirement is to list the IP address for the UNITE Hub inside the meeting space. You also need to set the rules for UNITE, as shown below:


Please note that the IP address should not contain any port data. The connection to the Intel Hub may be tested from a Door Tablet App on all the supported operating systems with V8.4.15 and up. When using the Door Tablet in a browser the integration with UNITE work in simulation mode only and UNITE test connection is not available. Use a tablet with a native Door Tablet App to test the connection to the Hub.



Note:
UNITE integration on the device is disabled if you use the following option:

And if the option is selected UNITE Integration is disabled, even if it is set in the meeting space.



Test your connection
To test your connection fill in the IP address of the UNITE Hub and touch on the blue UNITE logo. If the Door Tablet plugin is correctly installed, you will see a response next to the logo.

As mentioned above, you may test the connection with Intel UNITE from our Apps only. This includes the Door Tablet App from the Windows Store, when using Windows 10. And this is what it looks like:


On the UNITE Hub screen you should see:


Once you tested your connection, open the meeting space display in the normal way.

Door Tablet messages
The purpose of the Door Tablet messages is to ensure meetings are well timed. It is important that meetings start on time, end on time and, are properly paced. The Door Tablet integration with Intel UNITE helps with that:

When the application start and connects to UNITE Hub...


When a meeting is coming up...


When the UNITE Hub is used...


When the meeting space is no longer reserved...


When the meeting space needs to be check-in into...


After the meeting space was check-in to...


And when a meeting on the beach started...


Sometimes people just do notice how time flies, so a reminder...

More warning will show five minutes and one minute before the end of the meeting.

When a meeting may not be extended...


Please note that other messages will show when the meeting is either half way or 75% done. This would remind participants to speed up and stick to the meeting agenda and objectives.
