VoIP Service Bundled with Cordless VoIP Phone

SunRocket and American Telecom Services launch a fully certified DECT 6.0 cordless multi-handset Internet phone powered by SunRocket. The E6501S DECT phone will be available through nationwide retail channels beginning this month, starting with one of the nation's largest office superstores.

With an integrated router, users no longer require a separate Internet phone adapter, as full VoIP capabilities are already built in. In addition, because the DECT 6.0 phone operates in the 1.9 GHz frequency band, defined by the FCC specifically for cordless phones, the DECT phone avoids interference problems associated with home networks and other wireless devices operating in the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies -- such as Wi-Fi, microwave ovens and garage door openers.

Portico Telephone VoIP Adapter by Citel

Citel launches the Portico Telephone VoIP Adapter, enabling enterprises to quickly and affordably convert existing PBX phones into IP phones over existing wiring infrastructure. The Portico platform delivers the features and functionality of VoIP without the costs associated with typical “rip and replace” VoIP migration solutions, such as network upgrades, new handsets, and retraining.

Citel’s Portico TVA connects legacy PBX handsets to a premise-based IP PBX or Hosted IP service provider network and dramatically reduces the expenditure and disruption usually associated with IP telephony migration. High-value VoIP features and services pass through Portico TVA directly to existing PBX handsets over existing wiring, transforming them into new IP phones. With Portico, enterprises avoid the expense of a LAN assessment, LAN upgrade, and new IP handsets. A laptop or desktop web browser is used for enhanced VoIP features such as click to call, simultaneous ringing, and Microsoft Outlook integration.
