Solution provides versatility and advanced functionality ideal for core security operations


Las Vegas, NV (March 24, 2010) - Panasonic System Networks Company of America is showcasing the versatile KX-TDE600 IP- PBX communications platform here at ISC West 2010. In addition to supporting a range of analog, digital and IP telephony devices, the system is scalable to accommodate from as few as 24 to 1,100 employees. This demonstrates Panasonic's unique ability to offer a wide range of technology solutions to complement the company's industry leading line of video surveillance systems.

"Panasonic's KX-TDE600 systems provide a cost-effective and fully scalable telecommunications solution that can improve the daily operations of professional security operations," said Bill Taylor, President of Panasonic System Networks Company of America. "The systems are easy to install and maintain and integrate seamlessly with each other and with mobile phones, so employees at different locations and in the field can more efficiently stay in touch."

Panasonic offers three TDE communications models, each of which provides robust business telephony capabilities, including mobile-phone integration, support for up to 64 IP-Proprietary Telephones (IP-PTs), 32 IP-Trunks via built-in hardware, and 128 standard SIP phones without additional servers. The three models are: KX-TDE100 with up to 128 extensions, KX-TDE200 with up to 256 extensions and KX-TDE600 with up to 992 extensions (1,152 with DXDP).

The KX-TDE600 is available in four configurations, each consisting of one KX-TDE600 main unit plus up to three expansion cabinets. The main unit has 10 slots that accept any type of plug-in card, including Panasonic's Enhanced Simple VoiceMail (ESVM) cards, which provide message recording and outgoing message handling capabilities. The expansion cabinet has 11 open slots. The systems can all be networked together allowing businesses to expand and grow at their own pace while protecting their investment over the long run.

Panasonic's optional Communications Assistant productivity software offers a range of useful features for KX-TDE users, including presence information, which indicates the availability of co-workers, and instant messaging. Other features include VoiceMail Assistant, which makes it easy to manage voicemail via PC, send messages as email attachments, integrate with Microsoft Outlook and third party databases and use a computer as a software-based phone.

The KX-TDE600 platform is compatible with Panasonic's new KX-NT400 IP network phone, which features a 5.7-inch color touchscreen, as well as IP phones in Panasonic's KX-NT300 Series. The NT400's intuitive interface puts multiple options at the user's fingertips, including access to applications on your company server and a Camera Screen that displays video feeds and captures images from up to 20 network cameras.

In addition to IP telephones, customers can also choose from a range of compatible desktop digital phones and portable DECT phones from Panasonic's popular KX-DT300 series and KX-TD series. All models boast a wide variety of productivity-boosting features and options.
