Panasonic Announces Interoperability Certification for Its SIP Cordless Phone System With Pac-West's Telastic™

Certification Confirms Interoperability of Panasonic's Scalable SIP Endpoints With Telastic Business-Class Hosted Service

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Panasonic System Networks Company of America, the leader in business and home telephone systems, today announced Pac-West Telecomm, Inc. ("Pac-West") has certified the Panasonic line of SIP Cordless Phone Systems, the KX-TGP500 and KX-TGP550, for use with their Telastic™ hosted telephony platform. This alliance leverages Panasonic's global leadership in the DECT cordless telephone market and Telastic's innovative hosted PBX, adding up to a winning combination.

The Panasonic SIP Cordless Phones Systems boast outstanding voice quality and a range of productivity-boosting options in a feature-rich desk phone replacement. DECT 6.0 ensures no interference with wireless networks, and the convenient cordless design eliminates the need to run dedicated network wiring to each employee workstation. It is ideal for both home office and business environments.

The Telastic hosted IP/PBX solution is the flagship of the Telastic Turnkey Application environment and a cornerstone of Pac-West's Telastic carrier enablement solution set. The Telastic hosted IP/PBX offering provides a pay-as-you go pricing model that requires no up-front capital expenditures, allowing businesses to escape the economic barriers that have traditionally plagued the industry. Plus, it includes a complete set of innovative IP/PBX features, flexible partitioning of domains for wholesale and retail customers, web portals for all system user levels and multi-tiered rating and billing.

With flexible configuration options, it has never been easier to deploy and expand a SIP-based phone system with Telastic hosted service. Handsets can be easily added wherever needed; all that is required is an electrical outlet nearby. The reduced hardware costs and simplicity of routing calls over an Internet connection can add up to huge savings on monthly telephone bills, thus enabling home office or business environments to take advantage of a larger variety of business-class features such as call forwarding, intercom and conferencing, voicemail and many more.

TGP500 Series Details

The system features a wall-mountable base unit and one cordless handset.  It is expandable up to 6 DECT 6.0 cordless handsets and supports up to 8 phone numbers and 3 simultaneous calls. It boasts Wide Band Audio (G.722) and 5 hours Talk Time, 10 days Standby. Its elegant design features a white backlit large LCD on the handset and a Handset locator button on the base unit. It also has a handset speakerphone, 2.5mm headset jack and belt clip.

The KX-TGP550 has all the features and benefits of the KX-TGP500 and adds a corded base unit with a large white backlit LCD and 5 hours Talk Time, 10 days Standby, plus a Hands-Free Speaker phone, Handset Call Button on the base unit, and one-touch call transfer with Busy Lamp Indication.
