One-Look Network with NS-Net
Multiple KX-NS series PBXs (KX-NS300/KX-NS500/KX-NS700/KX-NS1000) can be connected as a
distributed networked system using a private IP network. The networked system is called a One-look network
and it can contain up to 16 KX-NS series PBXs and up to 12 legacy gateways (KX-NS1020/KX-TDA series/
KX-TDE series/KX-NCP series) or 24 expansion units (KX-NS320/KX-NS520/KX-NS720). The maximum
number in combination with legacy gateways and expansion unit. (For more details, refer to "8.4.1 One-look
Network".) In a One-look network, a KX-NS1000 PBX serves as the Master unit, which controls the other PBXs,
known as Slave units. The Slave units share setup information and resources controlled by the Master unit. A
One-look network is useful when the network will consist only of KX-NS series PBXs and a private IP network
is feasible. A considerable amount of setup is done automatically by the PBXs, so setup and maintenance is
much simpler than other type of networks, such as a TIE line network. All units can be programmed from one
location. Resource sharing allows users to interact as if they were all connected to one PBX, which eliminates
the need to manage information such as PBX access codes.

NS-Net is a network protocol only used for Panasonic products.
