Nortel Business Communications Manager 50

Nortel BCM 50Business Communications Manager 50 is an all-in-one, affordable platform for converged voice and data communications for small to medium business with 3 to 20 users, yet scalable to serve more than 40. Business Communications Manager 50 provides advanced capabilities such as robust telephony features, voice messaging and unified messaging, IP networking, Internet access, contact centers with skills-based routing, and IP telephony. With an easy-to-use and highly flexible architecture, the Business Communications Manager 50 enables small sites to benefit from convergence capabilities that were previously only available to much larger organizations.

Key Features:

  • One of the industry’s largest portfolio of telephony features: More than 200+ in all — lets you process calls with exceptional reliability, efficiency and flexibility. You can be sure that all callers receive prompt, professional treatment. Employees enjoy convenience, productivity and control features that reduce phone tag and frustration. For example, the system can put a call on hold to page a person, who can then pick up the call from any extension.
  • Voice Messaging: Enables callers to leave important information on a mailbox for a selected user, department or groups of users. The system adds call information, such as calling line ID, time and date of the call and priority level. Employees can record their own personalized greetings and enjoy password-protected access to their messages from anywhere. Mailboxes are virtually unlimited, as the Business Communications Manager 50 provides 100 hours of message storage.
  • Automated Attendant: Answers calls 24 hours a day with your personalized greetings and routes calls to the right people, departments or voice mailboxes — according to time of day, day of week, holiday schedule and calling line ID. The routing logic can include multiple levels, so callers can self-direct to exactly the right destination.
  • Unified Messaging: Converges voice, fax and email messages onto users’ PCs or laptops, to be managed by one standard application, such as Microsoft Outlook or Exchange. This convenience can be a real time-saver, especially for users with heavy call volume.
  • Convergence of Services over IP: Supports powerful new e-business applications that improve operations and customer service, cost-effectively extend network services to remote workers, increase portability, simplify moves and changes, and eliminate toll charges for site-to-site calls.
  • Universal Internet Access: Gives authorized users access to the company intranet or the Internet. Optional security features — such as authentication, encryption, firewall and virtual private networks (VPNs) — provide safe connectivity among business sites and for mobile or home-based employees.
  • Computer Telephony Integration (CTI): Enables you to use third-party, PC-based applications to control telephone services, such as a click-to-call company directory or automatic screen “pops” of a customer’s account status alongside a customer’s call. It’s simple to activate, set up and manage these applications from any workstation that has LAN or Web access, using a standard management application called Element Manager and “Start up Profile”.
  • Ad-hoc conferencing support allowing up to 18 simultaneous conference participants in multiple conferences
  • Simple to use, install, and maintain
  • Simultaneously support for both digital and IP telephone sets
  • Enhanced security features to keep your vital communications solution protected
  • Reliable digital mobility solutions allow employees to be more reachable and productive
  • Advanced features like Intelligent Contact Center provide flexible solutions for today’s business issues and tomorrow’s challenges

  • With the launch of the BCM 50, smaller branch offices can now enjoy the same advanced business functionality as larger sites.
    Part of Nortel’s range of convenient, cost-effective convergence solutions, the BCM 50 is perfect for companies with smaller sites or branch offices. Catering for locations with as few as 3 desktops – and as many as 44 Digital users , or 32 IP users (or a combination of the two) – it provides access to high value business applications such as Nortel’s Messaging, Unified Messaging and Call Centre.
    These applications all come pre-loaded, so that businesses can activate them as needed using Keycodes, and thus reduce the cost of implementation and deployment.
    For added flexibility, the BCM 50 Main Unit is also available in three versions, ranging from the basic BCM 50 without router to the BCM 50e, with Ethernet router, and the BCM 50a, which includes an ADSL router.
    Designed to meet a variety of branch office requirements, the BCM 50 can also be deployed as a pure IP solution, a converged (hybrid TDM/IP) solution or a traditional digital solution, depending on your needs.
