First and foremost, the NEC SL2100 features a built-in 4-port/2-hour InMail voicemail system, as well as (8) channels of built-in VoIP and (4) built-in Mobile Extension clients.

Additionally, the NEC SL2100 is chassis based for easier hardware installation.   There are now (4) slide-in card slots for trunk and station card slots, as well as a slide-in card slot for the CPU card!

The new SL2100 is wall-mountable, but it can also be installed in a standard equipment rack, using a specially designed rack shelf, available from NEC.

At initial release, the NEC SL2100 can be configured with two expansion chassis, allowing for a maximum of (128) trunks, including combinations of up to (36) CO trunks, (3) PRI circuits, and (112) SIP trunks; and a maximum of (128) stations, including combinations of up to (72) digital stations, (96) analog stations, and (64) SIP trunks. In the near future, the system will accept a 3rd expansion chassis.

The NEC SL2100 can provide up to (128) VoIP channels, allowing for much larger IP configurations.

The InMail can be increased from the (4) built-in ports to (16) ports and the InMail storage can be increased from the built-in (2) hours to (15) or (120) hours.

The NEC SL2100 12 and 24-button digital telephones incorporate a new cosmetic design and are accompanied by a new “self-labeling” IP telephone (see image, left), that features a dual purpose display and (8) physical keys whose functions change when the user scrolls through (4) pages (or screens), providing (32) programmable line/feature keys in total. And the IP telephone supports a gigabit connection, making it compatible with more customer LAN’s!
