MCK EXTender 7000 for Branch Offices
MCK EXTender 7000
This integrated networking equipment provides the full functionality of the corporate
PBX/KTS to remote employees, regardless of their location or network connection,
and offers rich local calling capabilities and survivability to branch offices
The MCK EXTender 7000
is integrated networking
equipment that resides at the
remote branch office location
and communicates with the
PBX/KTS at the corporate
or main location via the
EXTender PBXgateway II,
which is connected to the

lines resulting in significant telecommunication cost savings for the organization.
MCK EXTender 7000
The MCK EXTender 7000 unites
business office telephony across the
entire corporation. Regardless of
location, your employees have access
to the rich set of corporate PBX/KTS
features and functionality on all
calls, whether placed over the WAN
connection or the local lines. Plain old
telephone service (POTS) continues
to be available even when the WAN
connection to the central PBX fails.
System administrators and telecommunication managers appreciate the
inherent survivability and remote
management capabilities of the MCK
EXTender 7000. Moves, adds and
changes are amazingly easy and can
be done from a central location.
And these are just a few of the many
features and benefits available on the
MCK EXTender 7000 for Branch
The MCK EXTender 7000 is equipped
with dual console ports (see picture
below). These ports allow a system
administrator to attach a modem to
one and use the other for a local
terminal connection. This versatility
makes remote troubleshooting and
maintenance a breeze.
Two DB-9 console ports for easy
system management
•Unified Communications and
Centralized Management
Each employee, whether at the
corporate headquarters or a branch
office, is on the same voice system
and dialing plan and has access
to same features and applications
resulting in improved employee
productivity, customer service and
a unified image.
Day-to-day management of the
branch office's users can be done
from a central location, including
moves, adds and changes, as well
as system performance monitoring.
The MCK EXTender 7000 can be
remotely managed through a variety
of remote access options, and users'
port configurations and permissions
are controlled at the central PBX/KTS
as if all employees were physically
under one roof.
•Improved Return on Investment
Decentralized organizations with
multiple sites can leverage the full
functionality of a single PBX/KTS
and its supported applications.
No need to purchase an expensive
and hard-to-network voice system
and supported business applications
for each remote branch office.
•Network Efficiency
Ability to directly terminate the
network reduces footprint and wiring
requirements at both the corporate
and remote office locations. The
complete MCK EXTender 7000 and
EXTender PBXgateway II solution is
outfitted with a built-in T1 and PRI
interface eliminating the need to
purchase external network access
devices to connect to the Wide Area
Network (WAN). In addition, the dual
port integrated network card enables
the aggregation of voice and data
traffic for transmission to the main
office as well as the provisioning of
local dialing trunks for the
remote branch office.
•WAN Bandwidth Conservation
The MCK EXTender 7000 processes the
audio portion of calls made to either
extensions at the branch office or to the
local area, resulting in WAN bandwidth
preservation. The MCK EXTender 7000
only sends the voice traffic over the
WAN link when PBX/KTS features
are invoked.
•Business Quality Voice on Local Calls
The MCK EXTender 7000 relies on its
voice hairpinning feature to guarantee
business quality voice on calls made
and received using the local trunk lines.
Branch office employees connected
to the MCK EXTender 7000 are
able to place and receive local and
emergency calls even when the
WAN link to the corporate voice
network is down.
•The MCK EXTender 7000 connects
across the WAN to the EXTender
PBXgateway II installed on the
digital line side of the PBX/KTS
and terminates the digital sets
at the branch office.
•Every MCK EXTender 7000 comes
equipped with a dual port network
interface card required for the direct
termination of up to two T1 or
PRI lines.
•Dual Port Integrated Network Card
The built-in network card available on
the MCK EXTender 7000 terminates up
to two (2) T1 or PRI lines eliminating the
need for separate CSUs or DSUs.
•DSU Functionality
The integrated network card enables
the MCK EXTender 7000 to be the single
network termination device for both
voice and data traffic at the remote
branch office.
•Rich Local Calling Capabilities With
Full Access to PBX/KTS Features
Multiple channels can be allocated from
the T1 or PRI line for use as local trunk
lines. The MCK EXTender 7000
manages voice traffic on calls made or
received on the local trunk lines.
•Long-distance Toll Bypass
Any user connected to the corporate
PBX/KTS can be configured to access a
local trunk line on the MCK EXTender
7000 when placing a call to the branch
office's local area.
•When running MCK's Remote Voice
Protocol™ (RVP) over circuit-switched
networks, the MCK EXTender 7000
interfaces directly with the network
connection via one of the network
interface ports. Frame relay networks
are terminated thru a FRAD or router.
•The MCK EXTender 7000 can be
configured to run on IP transport
over circuit-switched, frame relay
and IP networks.
•When running MCK's Remote Voice
Protocol over Internet Protocol™
(RVPoIP) over IP-based networks,
the MCK EXTender 7000 connects to
an IP-capable CSU/DSU or router
via one of the 10/100Base-T ports.
The CSU/DSU or router must be
configured to provide Quality of
Service* (QoS) support in order to
guarantee voice quality in RVPoIP
•Configuration and programming
can be accomplished via either an
HTML interface, or through a
console interface using a dialup
modem, direct serial connection,
Telnet, or inband RVP.
•Comprehensive Survivability
Local-hosted mode:
When the WAN link between
the MCK EXTender 7000 and the
EXTender PBXgateway II goes down,
users at the branch office can access
the local trunk lines to place and
receive calls via the PSTN.
Emergency mode:
Single analog port provides Plain
Old Telephone Service (POTS) for
emergency calls in the event of
wide area network failure.

*MCK's IP-based products utilize Voice over IP (VoIP) technology to deliver remote voice solutions. The voice quality of these
solutions is dependent on variables such as available bandwidth, network latency and quality of service (QoS) initiatives,
all of which are controlled by the network and Internet service
providers. Because these variables are not in MCK's control,
it cannot guarantee the performance of the user's IP-based
remote voice solution.
