Panasonic, a leader in developing business communication systems, has two converged IP-PBX (Internet Protocol Private Branch Exchange) phone systems, the KX-TDE100 and the KX-TDE200. These enterprise solutions combine both VoIP and traditional telephone communications, provide flexible phone options, easy and seamless integration and remote support capability. For companies that have not yet completely transitioned to internet-based calling and still desire landline connection, they have the best of both worlds, with the flexibility to eventually connect to an existing broadband and enterprise PBX systems. The additional release of Panasonic’s new KX-TD7695, KX-TD7696 and KXTD7685 1.9 GHz multi-cell wireless telephones lets business users enjoy the benefits of the TDE systems even while away from their desks, thanks to a wireless system that keeps users connected across an entire network.

“The KX-TDE PBX systems provide a cost-efficient, streamlined solution for businesses needing versatile telephone needs,” said Larry White, National Marketing Manager, Communication Systems Group, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. “The converged architecture of this technology enables multiple communication choices, all of which can be managed from a single point – the ideal business solution for a company with offices in multiple locations. We’ve designed our TDE systems to include backward compatibility, which means that they can be tailored to a customer’s existing infrastructure and upgraded as the customer requires, without the installation of an entire new system.”

More flexible and intuitive than ever, the KX-TDE can be configured as a pure IP system, as a traditional phone, or both, allowing customers to deploy the communications solutions at their own pace. The KX-TDE is available in two sizes, enabling users to select a system that best fits their  needs and budgets. The KX-TDE100 has a maximum capacity of 128 extensions, while the KXTDE200 has a maximum of 256 extensions. Both systems are TDA-based, which enables an easy and affordable upgrade from their conventional legacy TDA system simply by installing Panasonic’s TDE IP Main Processor Card into the user’s existing unit. In addition, using the KXTDE systems, enterprise users will share one voice mail system and inter-office phone extensions at different locations can have a unified number plan for easy interoffice communications.

Three feature-rich system IP telephones are available with the KX-TDE PBX systems: the KXNT366, KX-NT346 and KX-NT343, as well as the KXDT300 series Digital system telephones. All three are Bluetooth® compatible using the optional KXT307 module. They also feature backlit displays, speakerphone, two Ethernet ports and Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities. In addition, the KX-NT366 has a self-labeling, central-office programmable keys that support up to 48 different functions.

The KX-TD7695, KX-TD7696, and KX-TD7685 1.9 GHz multi-cell wireless phones feature light, portable handsets equipped with almost all of the features of the wired system telephone. In the event that a user must travel away from his or her desk, the wireless phones enable them to continue current conversations anywhere within a wireless coverage area created by cell stations throughout a premise location. Therefore, regardless where users go throughout the premise coverage area, they stay connected as the wireless connection seamlessly moves with them from cell station to cell station.

The KX-TDE100 and 200 converged IP-PBX systems are available through Panasonic TDE trained and certified dealers only. For more information contact Key Communications.
