Audio conferencing on a Definity phone system

By: Zaibatt

Definity phone systems were the last PBX systems that were designed by Avaya in the late 1970s. Earlier, this system was designed specifically for commercial use in hotels and large business houses. But technological advancements and modification made it suitable even for smaller businesses, having the need for 50-250 connections. This reduced the expenditure incurred by these smaller companies on their communication facility due to the fact that it was a simple and uncomplicated phone system.

With globalization and the growth in the scope of business activities, needs of organizations, that were working on Definity phone systems, also started increasing. New technologies, like voice mail, audio conferencing, video conferencing, etc were developed, thereby casting a shadow of doubt on the adaptability of these new systems. However this phone system, developed by Avaya proved to be highly compatible and adaptable to the growing needs of an organization.

Audio conferencing has been one technology that has changed the way business houses communicate with their important members. Accessories like a soundstation have further enhanced this style of communication. Audio conferencing allows companies to have a simultaneous conversation with two or more individuals. This is especially useful due to the fact that operations of a company have spread across borders, thus increasing the need to integrate and efficiently run the business.

Avaya understood the importance of conferencing and designed products, like a SoundStation, that were easily compatible with the PBX systems. The conferencing products that were manufactured by Avaya could easily be attached to this system through normal analog phone switches. This eliminated the need to purchase additional equipments to attach audio conferencing equipment with the phone system.

The introduction of a soundstation in audio conferencing has enabled everyone in the conferencing room to hear the conversation, thus removing the constraint of wearing headsets. Not only can everyone hear the conversations, but also get involved in the conference while sitting at their places. These equipments can easily be attached to an analog phone line without any extra attachments, thus improving the quality of audio conferences in organizations that were working on an analog PBX phone system.

Thus we can see that a Definity phone system is easily conducive to audio conference, thereby assisting in enhancing the way organizations communicate with the outside world. Moreover, these systems also help an organization in minimizing their expenditure on communication by easily embracing new technology and removing the need to purchase new equipments every time a new technological advancement takes place.
