Panasonic Telephones and Phone Systems
Great gifts for the whole family can be found in Panasonic's selection of cordless phones and cordless phone systems. The cordless phone systems are a remarkable line. They allow a home or small office to run up to eight cordless "extensions" off a single set of phone jacks without tearing up the walls and installing complicated wiring. Panasonic's digital technology ensures crystal clarity for all.
For homes and offices where wireless networking is employed and interference from the 2.4GHz spectrum might be an issue, Panasonic makes 5.8GHz expandable cordless systems and DECT 6.0 expandable cordless systems. These feature-packed systems operate in the 5.8GHz or 1.9GHz spectrums, eliminating this problem. One 5.8GHz system, the KX-TG6700B System pictured above right, is a four-line system geared towards small office settings.
Key features include three-way conferencing and an All-Digital Answering System with up to eight mailboxes and up to one hundred minutes recording time. Power Outage Operation means the base unit will transmit calls for a limited time during a power (AC) outage. Most Panasonic systems feature convenience features like Chain Dialing, which allows users to "chain" numbers stored in memory together by pressing a single button for each stored number during a call. Uses include credit card numbers and pins, calling card and access numbers, and telephone banking.
