Yealink, a Chinese manufacturer of Voice over Internet Protocol or “VoIP” products, announced the launch of an adaptor that enables functions on its popular T26P and T28P IP telephones to be controlled via Jabra and Plantronics (News - Alert) wireless headsets.
The new EHS36 adapter is approved for use by both of the headset brands. It offers two interfaces, enabling connection to Jabra (News - Alert) units via an RJ45 output port and Plantronics models through a 3.5mm port.
The model features plug and play set up to quickly and easily release wireless functionality so that calls via the Yealink (News - Alert) phones may be directed to, answered and terminated using the headset, company officials said.
The adapted is priced at just $45, Yealink announced.
Company officials say the EHS36 adapter further releases the potential of its IP phones, given the growing appetite for productivity enhancing wireless headsets and Jabra and Plantronics’ massive presence in the market.
The Yealink SIP-T28P is a 6-line phone sporting a large 320x160 LCD screen and has full HD voice support (wideband codec, wideband handset, wideband speakerphone). The SIP-T28P was one of the first IP phones to support the G.722 wideband codec that is now all the rage in the VoIP market.
The SIP-T26P is an advanced IP phone featuring TI TITAN chipset and TI voice engine. It features three VoIP accounts, and a bigger graphic LCD.
Yealink is anticipating broad demand for its IP phones, given increasing pressure to maximize efficiencies across a range of private and public sector organizations. The company targets customers in the government, educational, industrial and general businesses ranging from SMEs to Blue Chips and embracing specific applications such as call centers and receptions.
Recently Yealink announced it has entered into a cooperation agreement with Elastix, TMCnet reported. Under this agreement, Yealink will become the exclusive official phone brand for Elastix (News - Alert) Certified Engineer Training or “ECE Training,” company officials said.
