Panasonic KX-NS500 PABX Switchboard – A Review


United Telecoms has recently added the Panasonic KX-NS500 PBX Telephony Solution to its already comprehensive range of business telephony systems. Below we review some of the impressive features of this business telephone system and how South African organizations are using the Panasonic KX NS500 to improve productivity and professionalism inside of their organizations.

Compatibility With Legacy and Future PBX Technologies

The Panasonic KX – NS500 PABX switchboard system has comprehensive backward compatibly and forward compatibility meaning that it is able to have both legacy handsets from previous Panasonic PABX ranges attached to the system and can handle legacy telephone lines such as Telkom’s Analogue, BRI and PRI technology. In terms of future proofing, the system is capable of integration with the latest IP telephony, DECT and Mobile Smartphone Handset technology, as well as being SIP/VoIP ready, ensuring companies are able to seamlessly transfer their workforce to the latest technology without the need to change systems.


Expandability comes in a number of formats on the Panasonic KX-NS 500 PABX System. The total number of users per system can be expanded to 288 users via after market expansion modules. In addition, modules such as smartphone integration, voice mail to email and user presence which allows the main switchboard operator the ability to see who is online when and route incoming call accordingly are all available on the KX NS-500. This range of expandability allows for significant flexibility in an organisations telecommunications system and is a stand out feature on the Panasonic NS500, allowing decision makers piece of mind that the system is flexible enough to meet their evolving needs.        


Always Connected

The Panasonic KX NS500 PBX System allows for full remote handset functionality with the addition of a simple Smartphone app. By linking your IOS or Android device to the NS 500 switchboard users can both receive and make calls as well as use normal switchboard functionality such as call transfer and internal extension dialling. Employees are able to use one contact number and are able to quickly and cost effectively reach colleagues across wide geographic regions as they would via an internal company PBX system even while out of the office. .

The Panasonic KX – NS500 PABX/PBX Switchboard offers one of the world’s most comprehensive Mid-sized business telephony solutions. By incorporating and enhancing features from both legacy and future technologies Panasonic has been able to pull together a cost effective unit capable of securing business communications for organisations well into the future.
