The Mitel® Line Interface Module is a discrete optional module that integrates into the Mitel 5224, 5235, 5324, 5330 or 5340 IP Phones and provides a separate connection to an analog line, such as that included with a DSL service.
In the event of a wide area network failure the phone automatically uses the PSTN to provide continued basic telephony until service in restored. The teleworker can use the analog line for emergency calls and for local calling. A lit line appearance and ringing on each phone identifies an incoming call.
This unique module:
Enables incoming and outgoing analog PSTN calls directly from an IP phone
Supports survivability (failover) in the event IP connection is lost
Provides emergency dialing support, such that emergency calls connect through the analog PSTN connection
The patented Line Interface Module enhances the Mitel Teleworker Solution, and extends Mitel's resiliency strategy for IP communications from the core of the network to the desktop!
