|Small, Medium and Large System Configuration Options||The TDS Series accomodate small office and large offices with the same approach to hardware and software. The TDS 40 cabinet accomodates up to 32 stations and 32 ISDN lines or 16 analog lines. Configurations begin as small as 2 or 3 lines and several telephones.
The TDS-80 is an 80 port universal cabinet supporting a variety of trunking options and station confirgurations. The stackable TDS-80 cabinet can grow to 1200 port in total.
Both the TDS 40 and TDS 80 cabinets share the same software and hardware structure. The printed circuit cards are interchangable and feature usage and programming identical resulting in ease of use for end users and simplification of installation, programming and on going service.
|Hybrid IP Capability||The core switching platform of the TDS Series is proven traditional digital technology which provides robust reliability and quality performance. IP enable your proven TDS System with VOIP trunking or remote teleworker IP phones and softphones. Or, create an IP based private network between multiple sites which increases efficiency and costs associated with toll calls between locations. With the TDS Series you get the best of both worlds by incorporating a proven platform and enhancing it with latest state of the art VOIP communications.
|Flexible Interface Options||The TDS Series can accomodate a variety of different interfaces. Outside line choices range from simple POTS lines, DID, E&M, T1, E1, PRI ISDN, BRI ISDN, VOIP Trunking.
Within the system there are Digital Stations, Single Line Stations, Access Control Phones, Digital Door Phones, Voice Service Interfaces, Programmable Relays and Sensors and a host of other convenient telephony oriented interfaces that come in handy for a variety of applications.
|Advanced Feature Set||The TDS Series offers an extended system and station feature set based on years of experience and development. The standard features packed into the TDS Series offer businesses capability that are options in other systems, or not offered at all. Digital ISDN lines to networking, auto attendant, voice mail along with IP connectivity make the TDS Series the perfect corporate companion for productivity and operations.
|Least Cost Routing||In any business environment the ability to reduce costs without negative effect can provide significant advantage for those who take the opportunity.
Integration of Least Cost Routing as a STANDARD programmed feature of TDS systems provides such an opportunity.
In todays communication environment there are multiple choices for communication channels and/or carriers with a variety of call costs associated, even down to different call rates dependent on the time of day.
Least Cost Routing allows you to program the carrier or channel used according to the number dialed and/or the time of day. By discerning the leading digits of a number dialed LCR will then either send the number as is, insert a carrier prefix into the dial string, or select a particular trunk to carry the call.
For example: mobile calls could be directed to your GSM router; local and national daytime calls prefixed to your second carrier, or directed via VoIP trunks to your ITSP for the most economical national and international tariffs. For larger business a Hybrex multi-site network with VoIP trunking between sites is an option.
In these cases the combination of specified extension numbering at sites and LCR programming can be used to create desk to desk dialing and the appearance of a seamless company network. Inter-site VoIP trunking has also creates the advantage of nil tariff inter-site calls.
In these ways TDS LCR allows you to program the most economical option to carry any call you make - a significant business advantage.
|ISDN Connedctivity BRI & PRI||Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) has been proven as an effective and quality communications conduit with worthwhile and beneficial features for business. ISDN Basic Rate Interface (BRI) provides for 2 trunks plus a data management channel. Similarly, but scaled, ISDN Primary Rate Interface (PRI) provides for 30 trunks Euro and 24 in the United States. ISDN, being digital, is also capable of carrying other data types such as video if required.
The integration of ISDN in TDS systems provides the high sound quality and multimedia access inherent in ISDN.
The real business advantage however comes with the additional features TDS ISDN integration provides. Features such as:
Multiple Subscriber Number (MSN) - the provision of multiple numbers for your business, essential for DID (below).
Direct Inward Dial (DID) - allowing incoming callers direct access to extensions without going through the switchboard.
Calling Line Identification (CLI) - allowing you to identify the originating number of incoming calls from the ISDN network.
Calling Line Identification Presentation (CLIP) - allows the presentation of a specific number for all outgoing calls.
Calling Line Identification Restriction (CLIR) - allows the restriction of identification for outgoing calls.
Advice of Charge (AOC) - at the end of each call, approximate call cost can be notified (subject to network provider).
Network Based Call Diversion, Transfer, or Conference - divert, transfer, or conference calls without tying up your lines.
Should you require, the TDS ISDN interface hardware also allows connection to E1/T1 interfaces
|Paging, Music On Hold, Background Music||TDS digital systems allow all types of extensions to access a variety of paging types.
Internal paging through the speaker of Digital phones and Access Control Phones.
External paging through an external PA system.
MOH (Music on Hold) to allow outside callers to listen to music when put on hold.
BGM (Back Ground Music) is benefit feature for an employee to listen to music when their Digital Phone is idle.
