Konftel Announces Avaya Compliance for SIP Based Conference Phone
March 30, 2009
Swedish conference phone maker Konftel AB
its first SIP based conference phone, the Konftel 300IP, is now compliant with Avaya Communication Manager 5.1 and SIP Enablement Services 5.0 solutions from Avaya.
In September last year, ContactCenterSolutions had reported
the launch of Konftel 300IP, which boasts innovative features such as local five-way calling, ring pre-programmed groups, Web-based configuration of contacts and settings, as well as call recording on SD memory card.
The Konftel 300IP is the perfect solution for conducting phone meetings with wideband sound quality. The solution is also suitable for large meeting rooms as it can be expanded with microphones, a wireless headset or connected to a PA system. Powered by SIP (RFC 3261), the Konftel 300IP also supports Power over Ethernet.
"Surveys indicate that there is an increase in the number of teleconferences because of the time-saving, economic and environmental benefits they offer. An increasing number of companies are replacing their legacy PBX with IP telephony in order to save money and be able to coordinate communication. For them, the Konftel 300IP will be of great interest," said Peter Renkel, CEO at Konftel.
Konftel AB is a Gold member of the Avaya DevConnect program. The program is directed towards the development and marketing of third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology. Being a Gold partner, Konftel is entitled to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J.
