We have arrived at the last full week for April, and so it’s time for another recap here on TMCnet. Let’s look at what happened in SIP phones’ headlines.
SIP phones are catching the eye of the industry, a special TMCnet report notes. Specifically, Jeron Electronic Systems parterned up with Brekeke (News - Alert) Software, Inc. to integrate Jeron’s Provider 790 nurse call system to enterprise level SIP wireless telephony systems in acute care facilities.
This will provide many benefits, among them patient call information, bed and call priority and one-touch answering.
“There is a tremendous amount of pressure to maintain and improve the level of patient care,” he said. “A networked solution for wireless phones increases the efficiency of staff by keeping mobile caregivers in direct communication with their patients,” said Myles Cochran, Jeron’s director of marketing.
In other news, Sonus Networks (News - Alert) released a study via Webtorials Editorial and Analyst Division, saying SIP-based Unified Communications infrastructure could improve productivity and save companies millions of dollars.
Productivity gains, cost savings, among other things are criteria that have been quantified within the study, demonstrating that enterprises could reduce telecom bills by up to 75 percent through SIP trunking, trunking centralization and the deployment of VoIP.
"With dozens of e-mails, multiple phone calls, and even more texts or IMs each day our traditional business communications processes have become overwhelming at times and it does not have to be that way," said Steve Taylor, editor-in-chief and publisher at Webtorials, talking about the downfalls of not using SIP.

Last but not least, Royal Philips Electronics (News - Alert) partnered with telepresence provider and SIP end points integrator Vidyo (News - Alert). This partnership is aimed at supporting the telehealth industry, in which Vidyo’s technology will incorporate telehealth solutions into clinical workflows and mobile devices, according to company officials.
"We are excited to collaborate with Vidyo to leverage its cutting-edge telepresence technologies to enhance the flexibility and scalability of our telehealth solutions," said Mike Mancuso, senior vice president and general manager at Philips Healthcare.
The increasing need for easier access to high-quality telehealth would be satisfied by the Phillips- Vidyo platform.
