On the other hand, the KX-NS500 starts from six analogue trunks and 18 extensions, up to 288 extensions with an Expansion Unit.  These systems also have jampacked IP features, and can also use built-in applications, such as a call centre solution, mobile solution, and voice mail system, to provide more efficient work and increased customer satisfaction.

Up-close: KX-NS V8.0 PBX Feature Updates

  • Built-In Automatic Paging

Ideal for organizations with the need to broadcast to an entire team or even a small group, the built-in automatic paging capability enables users to efficiently share information through 3rd party SIP speakers.  With this system, pre-recorded messages can be broadcasted to multi-zones without any external controller, either on the scheduled time automatically or manually. It can be used, for example, in schools, factories, warehouse or any wide sites that has wall-mount speaker communication systems to broadcast special announcements or for any emergency alerts. 

  • Emergency Alert Feature

This function enables a swift response to emergency calls (such as 911, 999, 112) made by the extensions registered to the PBX system. When the emergency call is detected, the system can immediately send notifications to designated extensions by indicating calling party's information on terminal LCD, or sending notification by ring alert tones or broadcasting pre-recorded message. E-mails also can be sent to a registered address to inform about a caller dialing the emergency number. In hotel environments, for example, NS Series V8.0 systems can notify by e-mail if any Wake-Up Alarm / Timed Reminder calls are unanswered.  With this feature, reception team can take appropriate action to support their guests.

  • Multiple Holiday Tables/ Time Zone Support

This is a fitting solution to organizations, which have multiple locations in different time zones.  With this feature, a single PBX can have multiple holiday tables and time zones, enabling terminals at remote offices to display different time zones without the purchase of another system. With intelligent business hours capabilities, this feature boosts seamless communication, which leads to maximised business output.
