Aastra Telephone Systems

Aastra telephone systems

Companies today operate in an extremely dynamic and hard-fought competitive market. The need to adapt to rapid change as well as to improve customer service continuously are frequent business imperatives. A decisive factor in business success is the need for the smooth exchange of information with customers and partners. Communications solutions that adapt rapidly and flexibly to new requirements and permit efficient communications help provide the necessary competitive edge. We at Aastra would like to show you particular aspects which should be considered when selecting a communications system.

Put your trust in a future-proof system

You may have already formed a basic picture of what your future communications solution may look like. But do you also know how your requirements will develop over the coming years? To be able to cope and adapt to future requirements, choose a solution which does not tie you to a specific technology type, and which is flexible enough to offer the best protection for your investment.

Rapid advances are taking place in communications technology. There is a move by many customers away from traditional line switched telephony (analogue, ISDN) towards voice transmission over a data network (Voice over IP, SIP). With such a move, the ability of a system to cope with future trends is now of central importance. With a solution that encompasses a full range of technologies, you can choose which one is right for you, and at which time. With an IntelliGate solution, you can independently decide when you will give priority to which technology. A modern communications system should also possess an open system architecture in order to be able to maintain independence when choosing future add-ons and expansions.

Do you also appreciate a user-friendly and reliable configuration interface for your terminals and applications? In this case, please pay special attention to the expandability and scalability of your new system.

Constantly on the move…

Due to the increased level of mobility in everyday business life, the ability to link geographically separated branch offices and to integrate field staff to the main office is of growing importance. Solutions where being remote means that you are isolated are no longer acceptable in the modern business environment. What is required are communications systems that support employees in their everyday tasks by providing all the tools and facilities available to colleagues in the main office, wherever they are.

This innovative system is designed for up to 50 subscribers. The Aastra IntelliGate 150 offers the same advanced features and facilities, but is targeted at companies and organisations with up to ten employees. The Aastra IntelliGate 150/300 systems come as standard with advanced features: use of VoIP, fully integrated mobile DECT telephony, music on hold and voicemail for every subscriber are all part of the extensive standard package.

Regardless of their actual whereabouts, connected users have access to all the functions and services that they would have at the company's headquarters.

The deployment of VoIP is particularly attractive to companies which have a high volume of voice traffic going between different company sites. With VoIP, calls are free of charge throughout the entire internal communications network.

Even the transparent networking with the Aastra IntelliGate 20x5 system family is simplicity itself, setting up an Aastra IntelliGate network (AIN) as a result. The standard SIP or QSIG protocols are available for networking with systems from other manufacturers. With the international fax protocol T.38 also supported, reliable fax transmission via data networks is also guaranteed.

One Number

One Number from Aastra allows you to equip several terminals (e.g. desktop phone, DECT, GSM) with one and the same call number after they have logged on to an Aastra IntelliGate communication system, thus passing on different phone numbers is reduced. But of course you still have the possibility of determining whether new incoming calls are displayed on all the terminals or on selected terminals only. If you make changes to the phone book or the call list, the changes are immediately updated on all the terminals.
