The First 4-Line Industrial Cordless Phone System Offers Tough Economy Efficiencies for Businesses
-New "Tough Economy" cordless phone system firmly establishes its superior communications value to the business community by offering cost-cutting features and flexibility over cellular.
Costa Mesa, CA - 15 August 2002 - EnGenius Technologies, the award-winning wireless solution provider and industry leader in distance performance for cordless telephone systems, announces the first 4-line cordless phone system with 2-way radio, the EnGenius Industrial Cordless(TM) EP-436. Now the longest range multi-line system on the market, the expandable full-featured system also includes auto-attendant to help businesses immediately reduce their administrative costs.
"We were so excited about the product launch, we're announcing prior to the January Consumer Electronic Show," remarked company spokesperson Doug Hayter. "The telecommunications industry has been very hard hit by the economy, but so have small and medium-sized businesses and we wanted to get the news out now. The new 4-line system could save a company thousands of dollars by the end of the year, and this is good news for businesses who need to reduce their administrative and communications costs now."
The EP-436 industrial system, with optional signal repeaters to provide maximum mobility and flexibility, operates off a single 4-line base unit and works with 1 to 36 cordless handsets that also function as two-way radios between handsets. The system offers the flexibility to be used as a stand-alone wireless PBX or can be used behind a wired PBX to offer wireless mobility to almost any business environment.
Designed for rugged dependability, the new industrial 4-line cordless telephone system eliminates the need for businesses to have a separate two-radio radio system, is less expensive to use than cellular and offers immediate cost-cutting business features including auto-attendant, which can easily be programmed to direct callers to specific handsets, text-messaging between handsets or to groups of handsets, and a unique battery hot-swapping feature - which permits changing the battery while a call is on hold. The system's digital spread spectrum (DSS) technology and frequency hopping allows for privacy and superior voice clarity.
Additional features include a music on-hold port, caller ID with call waiting, three-way conference calling between outside lines and handsets, speed dial directory, auto power management, frequency hopping security and headset ready 2.5 mm jacks. Optional equipment includes an indoor/outdoor external antenna for optimal coverage and a rugged case boot to further protect handsets from drops.
