GREENVILLE,NewSouth communications, which is seeking to capitalize on new equipment from Lucent technologies, is offering a variety of additional voice services.

Business customers using NewSouth can now forward customer calls to secondary numbers in the event of an emergency, access separate office locations with 3-, 4- or 5-digit dialing, queue excess calls until a line is available, and conference up to six lines simultaneously without having to set up a formal conference call.

NewSouth recently added Lucent technologies’AnyMedia 5ESS-2000 switch, which enables the company to offer the new services.
