PARTNER® Advanced Communications System
OVERVIEW AND DETAILS
Reliability, simplicity, a large selection of advanced telephony features, and converged communications through "business ready" digital subscriber lines (DSLs) or fractional T1 make the PARTNER® Advanced Communications System ideal for small growing businesses. This system is designed to help meet the complex business needs facing small enterprises today-with room for growth to meet future needs.
Available for more than 10 years, more than one million PARTNER systems have been sold worldwide.
The PARTNER® Advanced Communications Release 7 System's processor module supports five incoming lines and nine extensions, while PARTNER Basic's system processor module supports 3 incoming lines and 8 extensions. The maximum system configuration is 19 lines and 44 extensions, or 31 lines and 8 extensions. Either processor module can operate on its own or can be used with a 2- or 5-slot carrier and additional expansion modules. Expansion modules can be used to add lines and extensions to the system, or additional capabilities such as voice messaging and fractional T1 support.
PARTNER ACS systems support a wide variety of features including Caller ID (name and number), Distinctive Ringing, Send All Calls, Speed Dialing, and five-party conferencing, each helping employees to be more efficient and productive.
Cell Phone Connect via the T1 module enables customers to answer calls even if they are out of the office by simultaneously allowing calls to ring simultaneously at their desk phone and to their cell phone. Enhanced accessibility is also achieved through the Remote Call Forwarding feature, which enables a call to be immediately directed to any external number.
A variety of cost control features provide for better telephone expense management and system performance monitoring. The PARTNER system is easy to install and administer. It is simple to add modules and telephones; and software upgrades can be performed easily by inserting a PCMCIA card into the system.
The PARTNER® Advanced Communications System is manufactured to Avaya Laboratories specifications by Celestica.
