Latest Technology as standard

The NEC SV8100 is a VoIP Centric telephone system that can operate with up to 512 VoIP telephones or IP devices. The system has the unique flexibility to operate with any mix of Digital (traditionally wired) and IP phones as required. This allows companies to add a handful of “mission critical” TDM telephones to enable continued phone operation in case of computer network or IP faults. Wired (TDM) and VoIP handsets are identical – users don’t know the difference. The system also has a unique IP networking feature. NetLink allows multiple SV8100 systems to merge via the WAN/LAN infrastructure, effectively allowing multiple sites to operate as one corporate telephone system. System voicemail, user profiles and configurations are used centrally, accessible from any site.
