*' Technology relatedto audio transmission over a network.


Clear conversations between stations over wide band.

The system's echo cancellation*2feature makeshands-freeduplex conversation possible (conversations made without using a handset at both parties) between stations.

Can be connected to an existing local area network (LAN) or wide-areanetwork (WAN). The system can also be easily connected tofiber-opticnetworks without restrictionson operating distance.

0 The dedicated software program enables centralized control with a personal computer.

*System maintenance (verifying operation log and line supervision) can also be performed with a personal computer and Internet browser.

0 Connectingthe station to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switching hub eliminates the need for an AC adapter.A PC can be cascaded with the station. If power is not supplied to the station, hub function will not work.
