By using the Internet as part of your communications solution, your system is everywhere you want it to be. With Inter-Tel's powerful, IP endpoints, your data network seamlessly connects your local employees, remote staff and satellite offices as if they were all in the same building—providing you with functionality, mobility and flexibility like you've never experienced.
To suit your dynamic needs, most Inter-Tel IP endpoints are available in two modes: Inter-Tel Protocol or SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) mode. Inter-Tel Protocol provides an IP endpoint with access to the features and functionality of a traditional Inter-Tel endpoint. Implementing SIP mode allows your enterprise to access the Shared Extension feature, which allows multiple endpoints to use the same extension number on the Axxess converged system. Incoming calls to a shared extension are sent to SIP endpoints simultaneously; offering you dynamic mobility when you're away from your main desk. Additionally, SIP mode enables IP endpoints to interoperate with third-party SIP solutions.
