Yes, the Sutus BC200 supports paging or PA, Public Address.
There is an audio-out port on the back of the Sutus Business Central 200 on the lower left corner. This is where paging broadcasts get output.

Can I access my Sutus box from my iPhone?
Sutus uses the industry standard SIP protocol for extension connections. The only requirements for a SIP based phone calls are: a SIP extension and credentials (extension and password), and an Internet connection.
Assuming your iPhone has 3G Internet access, you'll need to do two things: 1) Create an extension for your iPhone (in the Administration panel this is called a Soft Phone). 2) Install a SIP client on your iPhone.

What is the Gateway 310 device? Is it required to use the BC200?In short, the 310 is an interface device between the Sutus Business Central 200 (BC200) and traditional phone lines (aka: POTS lines). POTS is a telephony term which stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service."
As the acronym POTS may imply it is a very old telephony standard, yet very stable. Until recently, this is the type of telephone service that has been supplied to most residential customers.
The Gateway 310 is NOT required if you are subscribed to receive VoIP based telephony services. In this case your telephone calls are carried over the same wires as your Internet service- more specifically by your Internet Service Provider. However, if using Fax services the Gateway 310 IS required. Fax standards are based on POTS lines. Some VoIP providers can provide Fax over VoIP (T.38 standards) but support varies from provider to provider.
Which VoIP or Internet providers work with the BC200?
Any Internet broadband provider will work with the Business Central 200. But only partnered providers are pre-configured to work in providing VoIP based telephony services. The following is a list of current providers. We also resell services for several of these providers if interested in a package deal including the BC200 and service.
- Excel Telecommunications
If you use a provider not listed here it is still possilbe to use them with the Sutus BC200 but it will require the use of both your provider's gateway device (ATA) and the Sutus Gateway 310 (included with BC200). Essentially your provider's gateway device converts the lines to generic phone lines (POTS) lines which are then genericaly accepted by the Sutus Gateway 310.
New providers are continual partnering with Sutus so please contact us (877-877-KONG) to find out up-to-date additions to this list.

Does the Sutus BC200 have Call Parking? How do I use it?
Does the Sutus BC200 have Centralized Hold?
(Call Parking/Call Pickup is also referred to as Centralized Hold by some systems.)
Yes, the Sutus BC200 does support Call Parking. Use Call Park to place a call on hold and then pick it up from another location. When the call is placed on hold, it is assigned to a stall (1-9). Anybody can then Unpark the call from any phone.
Here's how, depending on whether using Polycom IP SoundPoint phones or not:
To Park a Call:
Polycom IP SoundPoint Phones: There will be a Softkey for Call Park. Pressing this button will park the call is one of the pre-numbered stalls and display the number used on the display.
For all other phones: Star codes (* codes) can be used when no softkey is avilable. Pressing *94 will Park the call in the first available stall. The stall number used will be repeated over the handset or speaker phone.
To Unpark a Call / Retrieve a parked call:
Polycom IP SoundPoint Phones provide 2 options.
- Press the Unpark softkey and then select a stall number from the list displayed.
- Press the ParkList softkey to display the list of parked calls for selection.
Note that the list of parked calls has a special format on the display:
2:2000->2002, by 2002@15:32
Call between extension 2000 and 2002 is parked by extension 2002 at 15:32 and is in parking stall 2.
For all other phones: Use the star code *95+[stall number]. As no prompt or list is available via this means the stall number must be known in advance.
