Senior executives will benefit from the easy access to regularly called numbers, especially given the ability to see the status of those individuals before dialling.

The high quality 1/4 VGA colour screen is bright and easy to read, and then, when moving to Out of Hours, the screen automatically blanks to save energy.
PCS 562 and PCS 572G both have headset connection and the PCS 572G also has a USB port. Typically this can be used to connect a keyboard to enable high speed entry of text if required. The PCS 562 offers an integrated, two-port, desktop 100/10 Mbps LAN switch with Quality of Service (QoS), whilst the PCS 572G offers an integrated, two-port, desktop 1000/100/10 Mbps LAN switch with Quality of Service (QoS) allowing it to be run ‘in serial’ where Gigabit Ethernet has been deployed to the PC. The two Ethernet ports on the phone give the cost saving advantage of only requiring a single Cat 5 cable connection at the desktop, thereby negating the need for a dedicated LAN socket for the telephone. The phones also support Power over Ethernet (PoE), removing the need for power socket at the desk.
