announces the interoperability of BroadSoft's
BroadWorks platform with the KX-TGP500 series of SIP DECT cordless telephones, which offers outstanding voice quality and a range of productivity-boosting capabilities in a full-featured desk phone replacement. DECT 6.0 ensures no interference with wireless networks, and the convenient cordless design eliminates the need to run dedicated network wiring to each employee workstation. It is ideal for home and business environments.
The Panasonic TGP500 series phones debut at BroadSoft Connections 2009: Voice & Vision, October 25-28 in Scottsdale, where Panasonic is a Platinum Sponsor. This is Panasonic's second year sponsoring BroadSoft's annual users' conference, validating the company's continued commitment to its partnership with BroadSoft.
With flexible configuration options, it has never been easier to deploy and expand a SIP-based phone system. The benefits of SIP are especially compelling in today's business environment, where every dollar counts. The reduced hardware costs and simplicity of routing calls over an Internet connection can add up to huge savings on monthly telephone bills. With the Panasonic KX-TGP500 series SIP phone system, it is quick and easy to add up to six cordless handsets -- each with its own number. All that is needed is a single Internet connection and an electrical outlet near the location of the handset. Because it employs DECT technology, the connection is secure and the sound crystal-clear. Panasonic's SIP DECT phones use 100 percent recycled packaging materials, and all new models are Energy Star® qualified, which means they use about one-third less energy than non-qualified models.
Compatibility of the TGP500 series phones include:
- BroadSoft BroadWorks VoIP application platform
- IETF SIP version 2 (RFC3261 and companion RFCs)
