Panasonic Introduces KX-TDE600 All-in-One IP-PBX Communications Platform for Small to Large Companies

The Modular System Supports up to 1,100 Users per System and Provides Enhanced Networking Capabilities and IP Functionality to Help Businesses Grow and Be More Productive

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  Panasonic System Networks Company of America, a leader in business telephone systems, today introduced the versatile KX-TDE600 IP-PBX communications platform, which in addition to supporting a range of analog, digital and IP telephony devices, is scalable to meet the needs of businesses with as few as 24 workers as well as operations with up to 1,100 employees.

"Panasonic's KX-TDE600 systems are cost effective and fully scalable, allowing all kinds of small, medium and large businesses to grow in a way that protects their communications investments," said Bill Taylor, President of Panasonic System Networks Company of America. "Our TDE systems are easy to install and maintain and integrate seamlessly with each other and with mobile phones, so employees at different locations and those constantly on the move can stay in touch no matter where their work takes them." 

Panasonic now offers three TDE communications models, each of which provide robust business telephony capability, including mobile-phone integration as well as support for up to 64 IP-Proprietary Telephones (IP-PTs), 32 IP-Trunks via built-in hardware and 128 standard SIP phones without additional servers. The three models are:

  • KX-TDE100 -- Up to 128 extensions
  • KX-TDE200 -- Up to 256 extensions
  • KX-TDE600 -- Up to 992 extensions (1,152 with DXDP)

The top-capacity KX-TDE600 system is ideal for large operations, including manufacturing facilities, hotels, hospitals and businesses with multiple locations. Panasonic offers four configurations, each consisting of one KX-TDE600 main unit plus up to three expansion cabinets. The main unit has 10 slots that accept any type of plug-in card, including Panasonic's Enhanced Simple VoiceMail (ESVM) cards, which provide message recording and outgoing message handling capabilities. The expansion cabinet has 11 open slots. The TDE models can all be networked together, which allows businesses to expand and grow at their own pace, all while having their investment securely protected for the long run.

Communications Assistant Software Boasts Presence and IM Features
Panasonic's optional Communications Assistant productivity software offers a range of useful features for KX-TDE users, including presence information, which indicates the availability of co-workers, and instant messaging. Other features include VoiceMail Assistant, which makes it easy to manage voicemail via a PC, send messages as email attachments, integrate with Microsoft Outlook and third party databases and use a computer as a software-based phone.

Many IP Telephone Options
The KX-TDE600 platform is compatible with Panasonic's new KX-NT400 IP network phone, which features a 5.7-inch color touchscreen, as well as IP phones in Panasonic's stylish KX-NT300 Series. The NT400's intuitive interface puts multiple options at the user's fingertips, including access to applications on your company server and a Camera Screen that displays video feeds and captures images from up to 20 network cameras.

Digital and DECT Wireless Telephone Options
In addition to IP telephones, customers can also choose from a range of compatible desktop digital phones and portable DECT phones from Panasonic's popular KX-DT300 series and KX-TD series. All models boast a wide variety of productivity-boosting features and options.
