COMmander® 6000

Modular communication server for seamless VoIP integration,
Unified Messaging and Unified Communication

Even if you want to start with a small system at first – our COMmander 6000 with its fully modular design makes a perfect investment in the future. It’s suitable for wall-mounting, offers 38 trunk channels and up to 64 internal ports. To connect with the public telephone network, you may choose between VoIP trunk channels, ISDN basic lines and a primary multiplex access, while internal participants share the VoIP, ISDN and analogue connections.

Its full potential, however, lies idle until your demands increase and your communicational requirements grow. Are you keen on enjoying uninterrupted communication via wireless DECT system phones, or do you have a centralized voicemail and fax system with Unified Messaging in mind? No problem – simply plug the according extension into one of the COMmander 6000’s five open slots. You may even tap the advantages of the “Cloud” for your company.

This high-performance server can be easily integrated into your local network which ensures that all your subsidiaries and home offices are optimally tied to the system. Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) can be realised with Auerswald PBX Call Assist 2, the ideal solution for Unified Communication with up to 40 users.

Integrated web applications also enable you to configure and maintain your system from wherever you happen to be! As you see, this system can be designed to match exactly your requirements – from the smallest development stage up to the full version.

NEW with firmware release 6.4:

The place with the highest call volumes defines what’s required from your communication server and attached operator stations. COMmander 6000 series models are capable of managing up to 38 callers simultaneously.

Our system phones COMfortel 2600 and COMfortel 3200/3500 are ideally suited for operator stations, thanks to the possibility of adding key extensions – easy caller management at the touch of a key.

Call centers / Hotlines

Readily accessible hotline members will earn you many points. Thanks to the Automatic Switchboard, clients will be guided directly to the right contact person. Intelligent Call Distribution optimizes accessibility and distributes callers evenly to your employees.

Productivity at its best: 8,500 calls per hour are feasible. Relaxed working conditions are ensured with system phones and headsets of our COMfortel series, and integrated LAN TAPI enables the use of CTI applications.

Home Offices

Tie your employees’ home office firmly to your central telephone system! As long as their COMfortel 3200/3500 is connected to the COMmander 6000 via the Internet, they may log in to a group at the touch of a key and will receive clients’ calls just like their internal colleagues.

Provide personalized voicemail and fax boxes for them so that they are always updated on personal news – via phone call, e-mail and RSS. Faxes will be forwarded to their smartphones. Even CTI is possible from the distance.

Purchasing, warehousing, production

In these departments, employees are often not linked to a permanent workstation. In spite of their mobility, however, they must be permanently reachable. Be it in the warehouse, in production or in a nearby company building – a wireless solution from Auerswald makes it possible even over long distances.

Ask your specialized dealer about the various options with regard to mobile extensions to the COMmander 6000, e.g. with our multi-cellular IP-DECT system.

Hotels and pensions

Why not do the check-in (or check-out) of your guests through the phone on the reception desk! You won’t need a PC because your intelligent telephone system will take care of that. And to print out invoices, including call details, simply connect a printer to the system.

A universal telephone system, such as the COMmander 6000, will even arrange wake-up calls through the room telephone and control the door intercom system at the entrance to your hotel.

Hospitals and nursing homes

In these environments, it’s indispensable that the nursing staff can be reached at all times anywhere. This can be ensured either by the wireless IP-DECT system or by connecting paging devices.

Providing individual patients or occupants with a phone creates no problem either: targeted rights assignment enables you to limit the use so that e.g. only certain numbers can be dialled. The master phone in the switchboard is used to block or release individual phones.
