SpliceCom Announce New Entry-Level Handset

SpliceCom has announced the availability of their new entry-level business telephone – PCS 505.

An enhanced version of the PCS 5, SpliceCom’s PCS 505 meets entry-level business telephony needs by providing a balance between quality, features and price. The vendor says its smart yet rugged design means that the PCS 505 not only looks good, but also stays that way, even in tough working environments.

Integrated maximiser voicemail management keys, system feature access guide, combined Message Waiting/Visual Call indicator and four dedicated feature keys all help to make SpliceCom’s PCS 505 simple to use. Like the recently announced PCS 520 Display Phone, the PCS 505 Desktop Phone has been developed for direct connection to SpliceCom’s 5100 & 5108 Call Servers and 5315 & 5330 Phone Modules. This can be over structured cabling systems or existing telephony cabling.

“Even though PCS 505 is our new entry-level phone, users can access all of the advanced maximiser system features and benefits delivered by our latest IP Phones by using it in conjunction with our PCS 60 “Phone Partner” application,” says SpliceCom’s Director of Marketing & Product Management, Robin Hayman. Supplied as standard for every maximiser user, the PCS 60 Phone Partner application for Windows and Mac OS X computers is a personal productivity application that can be used in conjunction with the PCS 505 or any SpliceCom phone. PCS 60 allows calls can be dialed as normal from the PCS 505’s keypad, or alternatively via the PC. A Floating Caller Display feature shows who’s calling without interrupting any PC based application or task being worked on. Employees can choose if PCS 60 will “pop” on incoming call or when the call is answered, making it conform to the way they want to work.

Access to presence/speed dials/busy lamp field, system directories, messaging, visual call pick-up and call progress are all provided through PCS 60. Even the “push” of web- enabled information to the user desktop from the world wide web, company Intranet, IP Video Servers and Web Cams, IP TV and other web-enabled applications is easily achieved. “And we haven’t forgotten our commitment to makemaximiser’s benefits available to every business, independent of size, industry, location, network service delivery, LAN infrastructure, telephone type or computer platform(s) deployed. Because in PCS 50 there’s a Phone Partner that can be used with PCS 505 and Linux PCs too,” concludes Hayman.

Well suited for use as a wall-mounted phone, or for deployment in un-attended areas, the PCS 505 is perfect for those who want a simple cost effective desktop phone to use with maximiser – with or without SpliceCom’s PCS 60 personal productivity, Phone Partner application.
