NetComm Launches Desktop IP Phone for Business Users

  • 26 October, 2005 10:55

<p>NetComm, a leading Australian provider of communications products and solutions, has launched the V85 Desktop IP Telephone – a fully featured SIP-compliant VoIP telephone that delivers high-quality voice calls over the Internet. The V85 is designed specifically to meet the needs of the growing IP PBX market, with a growing number choosing the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) standard for their phone communications.</p>
<p>An IP PBX allows calls to be switched between VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol or IP) users on local lines while allowing all users to share a certain number of external phone lines. IP PBXs are the most commonly installed communications infrastructure for corporate offices.</p>
<p>“The V85 Desktop Telephone represents a new level of sophistication for NetComm’s growing VoIP product range,” said David Stewart, Managing Director of NetComm. “It can be deployed in large numbers as a business workstation phone, offering a cost-effective alternative to other IP phones on the market. With more and more companies adopting VoIP technology, we believe that the V85 delivers a stylish, feature-packed solution in a very price competitive product”</p>
<p>The V85 incorporates many of the key features expected in a business telephone including:
• Full duplex hands free speaker phone with echo cancellation – ideal for conference calling
• 10-number speed dial
• 50-number phone book
• Call transfer/mute
• Unique separate volume controls for microphone and speaker
• Dedicated PC port that can connect both the phone and the computer to the network using only one network connection
• Support for advanced call handling features such as call waiting, call hold, call forward and call transfer to an external phone</p>
<p>Small business and home offices can also use the V85 Desktop Phone individually or in small numbers to adopt cost-saving VoIP technology. The phone easily connects to a broadband modem router and can integrate directly with a network in an SME or SOHO environment, using a third party VoIP Server Provider.</p>
<p>The NetComm V85 Desktop Telephone is available now from computer resellers for $199 (including GST). Product enquiries can be made to NetComm on (02) 9424 2070 or</p>
