Mobility is being in contact. In today’s competitive business environment, being properly ‘connected’ and keeping employees reachable is more important than it’s ever been.

- Executive Mobex functions similar to a Standard but Executive users become a true extension of the telephone system; they can call transfer, conference, transfer to voice mail, etc. similar to any extension in the office. While on a MOBEX call, the user may receive system dial tone to make a call from the system with the company’s caller ID, transfer a call to any office extension, make an overhead page at the office, place a conference call, or place a caller on hold at another office extension. This feature requires an additional license, hardware and SIP trunking or PRI.
