Our Hosted PBX VOIP service helps your staff communicate better
Meridian's Hosted PBX service gives small and medium-sized businesses the same enterprise-grade desktop calling features found in Fortune 500 companies. Key features include:
Manage all aspects of the phone system from a web-based portal. View current and past invoices, make changes to phones, create voicemail groups, upload hold music, create paging groups, view call history and much more.
Paging allows you to speak to all phones at the same time through the speakerphone. Paging is used to make announcements or to let people know about a parked call.
Alphanumeric LCD Display
The phone's LCD displays shows the phone’s number, extension and inbound caller information.
Automatic Answer Mode
You may program your desk phone to work in auto-answer mode. In this mode the speakerphone key light flashes red, and when you receive an internal call you hear a burst of tone and the call is connected automatically.
Automatic Line Selection
This function allows users to make external calls without having to enter the line access codes (9, 8).
Up to ten phone numbers can be blocked from reaching your phone when a caller attempts to call you from one of these numbers.
Call Forward Always
The desk phone can be configured to forward all calls received at an extension without ringing the extension to voicemail, another internal extension, or an external number such as a cell phone.
Call Park and Pickup
Parking a call is very similar to putting a call on hold. The key difference is, when you put a call on hold you can only retrieve the held call from the phone that put the call on hold. With Call Park, you can put a call on hold and pick it up from ANY phone. Up to 4 calls can be parked system-wide at any given time.
Hosted PBX allows both "Automatic" and "On-Demand" call recording.
Call Transfer External
This feature allows an extension to transfer a call to an external number.
Call Transfer Internal
This feature allows an extension to transfer a call to another internal extension. You can transfer a call to an extension when the extension has answered, while ringing the extension, or while the busy tone is being received from the extension.
Call Waiting From External Calls
If you are on a call and your extension is presented with an external call, you will hear a call waiting tone and may place one call on hold to answer the second call.
Caller ID (Number)
When you receive a call, you will see the incoming number providing the caller didn’t block it.
Record you own music or special hold message for your callers. Your custom hold music or message can be easily uploaded through the Web-based Admin Portal.
Desk Phone Ringing Tones
You can select from multiple ringing tones.
Direct Inward Dialing (DID)
Each phone has its own phone number and extension.
Do Not Disturb
If your extension is set to Do Not Disturb, anyone trying to call you will be sent directly to your voicemail box.
eAgent Integration (CallScape)
When a call comes in, CallScape will pass the caller ID to eAgent and if it matches a number stored in eAgent, eAgent will open the contact.
Extensions are optional. They can be used for internal dialing by your users, when calling each other. They are also used by the Auto Attendant and Hunt Group systems for forwarding calls to users. You can select the length of extensions from 3-6 digits.
This feature allows you to lock your extension to prevent unauthorized users from making external calls. You use a Lock Password to lock, unlock, or to make calls from a locked extension.
You may assign names to extensions. This name will be displayed on the screens of the phones you call.
Web-access to Voicemail
Each user may log into their personal web portal to listen to and manage voicemail messages.
Fax Machine Integration

The phones can support up to 2,4,6,8 (depending on the phone) simultaneous calls (e.g. call appearances). These can be from external or from internal extensions.
Music on Hold
When an external call is placed on hold, the caller is presented with hold music. Choose our standard hold music or upload your own.
Mute and Volume Control
The phones allow the users to raise the volume of the ringer, the speakerphone, and the audio or to mute the microphone on the speakerphone or handset with buttons.
Named Ring Groups
Named Hunt Groups allow you to know which Hunt Group was called by viewing the LCD display on the phone. This is ideal if you run two businesses from one location because you will know how to answer the phone based on what shows on the screen.
On Hook Dialing
A convenience that allows the user to just start dialing without first choosing a line.
Each desk phone has a personal phonebook (size of directory depends on phone). Calls can be made directly from the personal directory. Received, dialed and missed calls from the call lists can be edited and saved to the personal directory.
Real Time Call Monitoring with CallScape
Always know who is on the phone. CallScape is a FREE application that allows you to see who, within your company, is on the phone. Simply install on your Mac or PC and you are able to monitor, in real time, the status of all of the phones in your company regardless of the phone's location.
