The existing paging entry terminal (AlphaMate) is used predominantly for placing an alphanumeric page. However, in order to place a voice page, it is necessary to use a separate telephone to announce the voice message. This extra telephone is connected in parallel to the AlphaMate.

ALPHAMATE SPEAKERPHONE FEATURE

by Mahmoud Charkhkar

   The existing paging entry terminal (AlphaMate) is used predominantly for placing an alphanumeric page. However, in order to place a voice page, it is necessary to use a separate telephone to announce the voice message. This extra telephone is connected in parallel to the AlphaMate.

   AlphaMate inherently contains all of the normal telephone circuitries, including a built-in speaker with a volume control. This makes it possible to easily replace the existing built-in speaker with a speaker/microphone combination and therefore have a speakerphone feature.

   This is a new and useful improvement to the existing AlphaMate, since it offers many attractive niceties in an office environment. Below, note the advantages of the proposed arrangement (Figure 2) and the disadvantages of the existing arangement (Figure 1).

Advantages: Shown in Figure 2.

1. Occupy less space on an office desk.

2. Allow hand-free conversation: especially, for secretaries to take notes.

3. Saving the cost of an extra telephone.

4. Allowing to place an alphanumeric and voice page from a single device.

5. Simplicity of usage.

Disadvantages

1. Need for extra telephone.

2. Occupy extra space.

3. Does not allow hand-free conversation.

4. Extra cost for a separate telephone.

5. Difficult to use.
