Panasonic Introduces New Cordless Desk Phone Designed for Collaboration

March 18, 2019

NEWARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 18, 2019--Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America, Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, today announced the launch of the Panasonic KX-TPA68, a new SIP cordless communication terminal designed for intuitive use and added flexibility as a member of the KX-TGP600 SIP cordless phone system family. This announcement follows a report released by Eastern Management Group, which found that SIP trunk and phone growth is projected to beat growth in IT spending in 2019 and again in 2020.

The new cordless desk phone is designed to help increase collaboration among employees by enabling real-time shared call appearance, allowing users to pick up calls, retrieve held calls and join calls from lines shared across multiple KX-TPA68 cordless desk phones registered to the same base unit. With these capabilities, users can monitor the status of up to six phone lines in real-time on the same screen and complete actions using single touch operations.

Equipped with a 3.5-inch color LCD, the KX-TPA68 features superior sound quality, with a full duplex speaker-phone and 4 dB higher voice volume than the previous model. Additionally, Panasonic introduced an upgraded noise reduction feature, which automatically adjusts the received audio volume in noisy environments, to further improve quality. The KX-TPA68 cordless desk phone can work alongside any combination of up to seven additional Panasonic cordless or desktop DECT phones per KX-TGP600 base unit.

“We’re thrilled to offer a new cordless desk phone, giving our customers a high-quality solution to meet their changing business needs,” said Oliver Bodden, Senior Product Manager, Unified Communications, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “With the growth of the UCaaS market making the workforce more mobile, businesses are looking for solutions that will offer convenience and flexibility for their employees so they can do their jobs effectively. Panasonic’s KX-TPA68 does just that – it boosts productivity and collaboration, and offers enhanced sound quality and an intuitive user interface, giving businesses a modern and elegant communication solution that integrates with many different platforms.”

Key Features:

  • Intuitive Operation: The large color LCD screen enhances the user interface, allowing every detail to be visible at-a-glance for users.
  • Key System Emulation: This feature supports easy to use PBX and key system functionality to bridge the gap as employees move from a PBX system to hosted environments, without sacrificing features or functionality.
  • Flexible Function Keys: This new model includes 18 self-labeling flexible function keys – arranged as 3 pages of 6 keys – that indicate both icon and status.
  • Privacy Features: Businesses can set privacy privileges to define which operations are allowed for specific users, ensuring a collaborative, but controlled communication environment.
  • Easy Installation: The phone offers easy and flexible installation without the need for complex wiring.
  • Contact Directory: The phone is able to store up to 500 phone numbers for easy look up and ease-of-use.
