System Changes

System Mode

The system can operate in either key system mode or PBX system mode.

The default mode that the system adopts depends on the type of System SD card fitted to the system. Systems with a PARTNER, Norstar or IP Office U-Law card default to key system mode. Systems with an IP Office A-Law card default to PBX system mode.
