- Provides office-quality communications,
wherever the office may be
ESIís Remote IP Feature Phone works virtually like all the other ESI Feature
Phones on the office system:
- The superb voice mail system works the same.
- The easy-to-use function keys work the same.
- All the indicators light up the same.
- The big, easy-to-read display works the same.
In fact, to the ESI phone system, the Remote IP Feature Phone is just another
extension. Others on the system can reach it by just dialing an ordinary
extension number, as if it were just down the hall ó even if itís actually
many miles away. The following diagram shows one possible setup. In this case,
there are two remote locations connected via either wide area network (WAN) or
the Internet to an ESI IP-enabled phone system at the main office.
- Saves money
With a Remote IP Feature Phone, you can enjoy high-quality office
communications without the need for an expensive dedicated phone line
connecting the remote site and the main office. Also, youíll save on long
distance charges by being connected via either a WAN or the Internet. Letís
say youíre in Los Angeles and have a Remote IP Feature Phone connected via the
Internet to an ESI phone system at your main office in New York; just dial an
extension to reach the New York office ó toll-free. (If the main office
already has a toll-free number, this will allow you to dedicate it even more
fully to calls from customers, prospects and vendors.)
- Provides flexibility
With the rapid growth of DSL and other broadband services, fully functional
Remote IP Feature Phones can be deployed to small remote locations such as
local sub-offices or teleworkersí desktops at home.
- Allows transparent routing
Because the Remote IP Feature Phone works just like any other ESI feature
phone on the system, you can route incoming calls transparently to a Remote
Phone. This is a great way to handle calls to sales, service or other
departments which may be located off-site. Indeed, because all ESI IP-capable
phone systems have built-in automatic call distribution, this may be the ideal
solution for a remotely located call center.
- Is better for executives and teleworkers
With the Remote IP Feature Phone, the home phone line isnít tied up and
the data connection still carries data traffic, such as Web browsing, while
Remote Phone conversations are in progress.*
