It allows the technician/system administrator to download a database from the phone system, make changes, and then upload. New to the SV8100 is WebPro. This application is a Web server running on the CPU card of the SV8100. No special installation program is required. A user programs the KTS using their standard Web browser after entering the IP address and a user name/password.
Quick Transfer to Voice Mail
Allows a station user to transfer a call directly to the called party’s voice mail. The station number can be dialed while performing a screened transfer or during intercom calls.
Remote Office Connection

And, incoming and outgoing calls can be made over the internet as well, saving drastically over copper telephone company lines for local and long distance calling.
Secretary Call (Buzzer)
Lets two co-workers alert each other without disturbing their work. To have Secretary Call, both co-workers must have multiline terminals with Secretary Call buzzer keys. When a user presses their buzzer key, the system alerts the called extension by sending a splash tone and flashing the called extension's buzzer key. The called user can respond by placing an intercom call to the calling party. The called extension's buzzer key continues to flash and the splash tone is heard until either user cancels the Secretary Call.
Secretary Call Pickup
Lets a multiline terminal user easily reroute calls intended for a co-worker to themselves. By pressing a Secretary Call Pickup key, the user can have all calls to a co-worker's telephone ring or voice-announce theirs instead. Secretary Call Pickup is a simplified type of Call Forward with Follow Me for employees who work closely together.
Selectable Display Messaging
An extension user can select a preprogrammed Selectable Display Message for their extension. Display multiline terminal callers see the selected message when they call the user's extension. Selectable Display Messaging provides personalized messaging. For example, an extension user could select the message "GONE FOR THE DAY". Any display multiline terminal user calling the extension may hear a DND signal and then see the message. An extension user can add digits for date, time or telephone number after messages. For example, an extension user could select the message "ON VACATION UNTIL" and then enter the date.
Selectable Ring Tones
An extension user can change the way trunks or internal calls ring their telephone. Selectable Ring Tones allow an extension user to set up unique ringing for their calls.
Each display telephone provides interactive softkeys for intuitive feature access. It is no longer necessary to remember feature codes to access the telephone's advanced features because the function of the softkeys change as the user processes calls
Speed Dial - System/Group/Station is enhanced
There are three types of Speed Dialing: System, Group and Station. All co-workers can share the System Speed Dialing numbers. All co-workers in the same Speed Dialing Group can share the Group Speed Dialing numbers. Station Speed Dialing numbers are available only at a user's own extension. The system has 2000 Speed Dialing bins that you can allocate between System and Group Speed Dialing. A maximum of 65 Speed Dialing Groups are available. Each Speed Dialing bin can store a number up to 24 digits long.
Allows a station to be moved from one location to another, without having to reprogram the station data. The station’s features and extension number are the same after it is moved to the new location.
Unified Messaging – is an available option
The SV8100 Voice Processing system, using a Local Area Network, provides Unified Messaging services for voice, fax and e-mail messages with access at either the desktop PC using programs like Outlook or from the telephone. Unified Messaging lets the PC control telephone calls and information about each inbound and outbound call.
VOIP (Voice Over IP) – is an available option
The new SV8100 provides for IP as well as the standard TDM telephones. IP telephones provide the same features as the TDM phones but provide these features from anywhere in the World Wide Internet. The IP phones may be located at home or in remote workers locations just as if they were sitting in the main office.
The new SIP VOIP internet lines are available now with the SV8100. Calls can be made through the internet, replacing the local phone companies and reducing cost.
