SIP phones serve as a more flexible, expandable and reliable way to deploy users’ SIP-based telephony. The benefits of SIP are plenty, and are especially compelling in today’s business environment – and economy – where every dollar holds its value. A SIP phone system is a perfect and simple solution for small businesses or even larger SIP endpoint deployments.
This week was particularly exciting for SIP phones provider Panasonic (News - Alert), whose KX-UT248-B Executive SIP phone was awarded with the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year award. This year’s honorees for the 2012 Product of the Year award were selected based on the most deserving companies that have demonstrated the most vision, leadership and thoroughness, as explained in a statement.
"Judging this year was more difficult than ever, with the breadth of products being reflective of the continuous evolution of the IP communications market. These winners have been chosen based on their innovation and ability to solve real business communications challenges," TMC Editorial Director, Erik Linask (News - Alert) explains in said statement.
Also this week, Virtual PBX, a provider of PBX phone systems and services, revealed that it has certified nearly all Panasonic SIP Business Phones for use with its esteemed services. This new alliance will ultimately allow Virtual PBX’s (News - Alert) small business customers to enjoy a complete end-to-end, cost-efficient, integrated communication solution by combining Panasonic’s award-winning SIP phones with its award-winning PBX phone system.
This combination will also allow customers to route calls over the Internet and enjoy a variety of business-class features, including call forwarding, call recording, conferencing, voicemail to e-mail, fax to e-nail and many more unified communications (UC) tools for reduced hardware expenses and significant savings on monthly telephone bills.
Wrapping up this week we are given five reasons why our SIP phone perception could be skewed. Five reasons why people typically tend to shy away from using SIP phones include the following: SIP phones don’t provide protected phone service when the electricity goes out; low-quality; the element of cost; assumed problems with 911 integration; and the fact that SIP phones cannot support new technologies.
All of these are false assumptions, however, are disproved in the article by Panasonic’s line of robust SIP phones.
That’s going to do it this week here for the SIP Phones Community. To see the latest in the SIP Phone (News - Alert) space next week, be sure to check back same time, same place – only here at TMCnet!
