August 13, 2012Phone.com Delivers Mobility to Small Businesses
By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor
Phone (News - Alert).com is delivering mobility to small businesses with the introduction of new Panasonic Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phones. These mobile devices provide business-quality services similar to landline phones while delivering the mobility of traditional cordless instruments.
Phone.com is one of the first Internet Telephony (News - Alert) Service Providers (ITSPs) to introduce these cordless telephones as a standard product offering. The company notes that these SIP phones are not only good for small businesses but can also be used by residential and home office users.
“The SIP cordless phones from Panasonic allow our customers to enjoy the familiarity of existing cordless phones but with much lower phone line costs than with traditional Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS),” said Ari Rabban, CEO of Phone.com.
Both the Panasonic KX-TGP500 and KX-TPA50 are expandable to six DECT (News - Alert) 6.0 cordless handsets. These products have the ability to support three concurrent calls, and are standardized for high-definition (HD) voice communications.
Elaborating on the handsets Phone.com notes that handsets on both phones feature calling status displays on large 2.1-inch screens with white backlight. Buyers will be able to enjoy several benefits such as call forwarding, voice mail and call transferring. Phone.com claims that a fully charged phone provides five hours of talk time or about 10 days of standby.
“Phone.com’s VoIP phone service and cloud-based business phones are ideal for smaller businesses, especially for those that require mobility within an office environment. This could include medical offices, accounting firms, legal offices, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail stores,” added Rabban.
