AastraLink Pro 160 - Overview

Feature Rich IP PBX
The AastraLink Pro160 delivers large PBX functionality to the small business environment. Featuring an Auto-Attendant, which automatically configures on initial startup, the AastraLink Pro manages and directs incoming calls to individuals or groups by extension dialing or name search. In addition, individual Voicemail boxes are also automatically configured and operational at start up. PBX telephony features include: call forward, hold and hold alerts, call log, call transfer, 3 way conferencing, corporate and personal directory.

Simple Deployment
By simply plugging the AastraLink Pro into an existing LAN (Local Area Network) it’s ready to start communicating without the need of an installation technician. The AastraLink Pro will auto discover and configure any new Aastra SIP phones connected to the system making the need for a service technician to perform moves, adds and changes a thing of the past.

Networking, Teleworking and Scalability
The AastraLink Pro grows as your business expands. It can host up to 50 extensions when SIP trunking is used, and up to 9 AastraLink Pro systems can be linked together via IP to create a WAN linked multi site office environment. Remote tele-working from a home office is as simple as taking an auto discovered AastraLink SIP phone and plugging it into your UPnP enabled home network.

Affordable Solution integrates with Aastra SIP phones
With no hidden application license or user costs, or the need of an installation technician, AastraLink Pro is a cost effective and powerful small business communication system that tightly integrates with the following Aastra SIP phones and expansion modules: 51i, 53i, 55i, 57i, 57i CT, 536M, and 560M, and the recently announced 9143i, 9480i and 9480i CT.
