Tones and music on hold assure callers that they haven't been forgotten or disconnected.

Held line reminder doesn't let you forget that an important caller is holding.

Discriminating ringing makes it easy to distinguish between internal and external calls and respond appropriately.

Paging enables you to quickly locate a co-worker by making an announcement through Norstar phones, auxiliary speakers or both.

Conference feature lets you quickly bring a third person into a conversation.
