Module EXTender

Module EXTender™ for Norstar®

Extend the reach of your Norstar® system to different floors or different buildings. The Mod-EXTender extends features and functionality of a central Norstar PBX to a remote site, over Multi Mode fiber. Leverage existing Norstar® PBX infrastructure investments, centralize voice network administration, and enjoy dramatic monthly telecom savings with Citel’s affordable, Mod-EXTender.

A Smart way to integrate a remote site

You can connect a remote site 0 X 16 Norstar® shelf over Fiber, back to the main Norstar®. This allows you to connect up to 16 standard 2 wire digital phones into the 0 X 16 shelf, at the remote site. These phones, (7310, T7316, T7208, etc) will work exactly as if they are connected to the Norstar®. This greatly saves the cost of adding telco lines, and installing another PBX, and increases efficiencies by having the main and remote site all operate as one Norstar® phone system. Since it’s all in one phone system, voice mails can be transferred, calls transferred, internally. The take away is greater efficiency, and cost savings, compared to installing a Norstar® at the remote site.

Citel’s Mod-EXTender is plug and play. No configuration is required.
