The KX-TGP700 offers simple to install yet scalable and flexible wireless telecoms ideal for small to medium businesses.
Bracknell, UK. 10th September 2020 – Panasonic today announced the availability of its next generation single cell SIP DECT telecoms solution ideal for small to medium businesses. The Panasonic KX-TGP700 is a game changer for organisations that want a wireless telecoms solution for both office-based and mobile employees.
Traditionally, single cell DECT solutions were only suitable for businesses at smaller site locations. Larger businesses required multicell solutions that offered a wider coverage area but were much more expensive and complex to install and maintain. The next generation Panasonic TGP700 breaks that mould, doubling the number of handsets and concurrent calls that it can handle over the popular Panasonic TGP600.
The TGP700 DECT base station operates with 16 registered handsets and 16 SIP lines for public numbers that are able to handle 16 concurrent calls, making it an ideal solution for logistics operations with warehouses, medical offices, restaurants and retail stores.
This latest generation single cell DECT system is also the first to include Busy Lamp Field functionality for handsets registered to the base station, allowing users to see which handsets are available or in use.
To ensure that every type of worker has the appropriate communications tools, the TGP700 has a comprehensive ecosystem of DECT handsets and DECT-based desk phones available. This includes the latest Panasonic KX-TPA70 and KX-TPA73 handsets launched earlier this year and designed to take the user experience to the next level with a clear colour interface and streamlined and intuitive functionality.
“The next generation Panasonic TGP700 solution is great news for business. Now many larger organisations can benefit from the cost effective simplicity and flexibility of a single cell DECT system and avoid the cost and complexities of multicell solutions,” said Raphael Studer, European Business Development Manager for Panasonic Communication Solutions Division.

London /Europe /Sydney /New York /Toronto /Hong Kong – BAI Communications’ Director of Engineering, UK, Andrew Conway will join the Small Cell Forum board of directors, effective 1 October 2020. Andrew is an expert in wireless cellular networks, specialising in the network design and development aspects of the transport sector, including partner management and industry liaison.
Driving network densification worldwide and accelerating small cell deployments, the Small Cell Forum partners with private enterprise and works with regulators and municipalities to remove commercial and technical barriers, and forge opportunity. This commitment by the Small Cell Forum complements BAI’s vision to become a leading 5G neutral host infrastructure provider in major cities that are developing this technology for industries needing high-speed networks.
Andrew believes that cellular data growth is driving an increasing need for network densification around the world. “There’s a renewed focus on infrastructure network investment and BAI plays a key role as a neutral host network provider. BAI’s networks are strongly aligned to 5G, smart city, small cell, and transport use cases. BAI is a strong supporter of the Small Cell Forum’s mission and it’s a privilege to be able to contribute to its work and help drive its thought leadership.”
“BAI provides extensive cellular coverage through 3G and 4G shared infrastructure and Wi-Fi for commuters traveling underground in cities like New York, Toronto, and Hong Kong, and plans to use this technical and operational expertise to develop new 5G outdoor neutral host services,” said Andrew, who also chairs techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Council.
Globally, the Small Cell Forum gathers requirements from service providers and enterprises and, as directed by the Board, these inputs shape its work in the areas of: 5G small cells; planning, management, and automation; 5G regulation and health concerns; multi-operator neutral hosting; private networks; and edge computing.
“I am delighted to have BAI Communications as a Small Cell Forum member and am excited about the synergy between our organisations. Andrew’s design leadership in making the complex simple is a skill he is using to translate innovative next generation technology possibilities into real world successes at BAI. Having this capability on our board and within our neutral host work stream will accelerate our mission to make mobile infrastructure an accessible resource for industry, enterprise, and communities,” said Small Cell Forum Chair Dr. Prabhakar Chitrapu.
“Andrew’s decades of experience in designing next generation networks and his interest in the societal impact of mobile communications and 5G makes him an excellent candidate for the board position,” added Dr. Chitrapu.
Paratus Zambia pioneers 100Gig Metro Fiber Ring for Telco Group
Paratus Zambia has deployed a 100Gig metro fiber ring in Lusaka, which is a first for the pan-African telecommunications Group. In addition to delivering Data Center solutions, the enterprise network will now also provide robust business fiber services, that guarantees uptime and quality connectivity.
The capabilities of the fiber ring are unsurpassed, as it utilizes technology that increases bandwidth over an existing fiber network, meaning businesses can transmit data at speeds of up to 100Gbps. Coupled with the additional capacity of Paratus’ network footprint, businesses not only get speed, but much-needed bandwidth for data-hungry applications, as well as reliable access to their branches, private data centers and cloud services such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon and Google Cloud.
Simply having a fast Internet connection is not enough, businesses need a connection that won’t bite into their bottom line with the risk of outages. Staying operational in a highly competitive market is crucial and any downtime can have far-reaching and often devastating effects across many parts of your business.
“Zambia is home to businesses that require world-class, high-capacity fiber connectivity, that won’t be compromised by downtime caused by third-party service providers who rely on other networks and cost your business money. We are able to offer a single point of contact solution that maximises your uptime and reduces costs. There is no reason to compromise on quality connectivity, quality service and quality support.”, says Paratus Zambia Country Manager, Marius van Vuuren.
As part of Paratus’ ongoing strategy to grow their footprint throughout Africa, the group activated additional capacity on the WACS submarine cable and its own Trans Kalahari Fiber via Namibia and Botswana to Sesheke, Zambia last year, further enabling businesses to be effortlessly connected in the region and to the rest of the Africa.
“Your business deserves a reliable network partner, which is why we are committed to investing in infrastructure and providing robust technical support that is available 24/7. We do not limit ourselves in the pursuit of delivering unlimited service and support to our customers.” concludes van Vuuren.
