NEWT Tone Suppression: Ending the Dreaded “ding, ding, ding’s”

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 2.48.37 PM

We’ve all been there. On a conference call or a webinar with lots and lots of participants, and every time someone joins in, “ding!” And then “ding – ding, ding – ding, ding, ding,” and it’s like that, on and off, for the duration of the call. It is, in a word, annoying.

We heard that at NEWT as well, and that’s why we’ve rolled out the latest free upgrade to the NEWT Managed PBX Business Phone System, “Tone Suppression for Enhanced Conference Bridge Moderators.”

It’s now a simple process to enable “Tone Suppression” for a bridge or bridges. Your conference will no longer notify all active participants in a conference call with an audible sound when a new individual joins or leaves the call.

To enable Tone Suppression:

  1. Access the Conference Bridge Tab of the NEWT Configuration Utility
  2. Locate the Bridge Name you want to enable Tone Suppression on then, place a check in the box under the column titled “Tone Suppression”
  3. Apply changes

That’s it. No more “dings” (if you don’t want them). This latest feature for our business phone solution has been rolled out to all NEWT customers automatically at no charge. That’s an added benefit of NEWT; the business phone system you buy today won’t be the same business phone system you have tomorrow, or next month, or next year. Always evolving and improving, NEWT promises to provide all the latest and greatest communication tools that modern business demands.

If you are not a NEWT client and are looking to upgrade your business phone, a business phone system that continuously upgrades itself, please drop by the NEWT Website or give us a call at 1 (888) 996-6398.
