Needless to say, some have remained shy when considering adopting SIP phones for their business. There are tons of rumors circulating including unreliability, hidden fees and call quality.
Panasonic is well known for its tablet-like devices, such as its line of robust rugged toughbooks, which have gained critical acclaim. Now, it's being reported that Panasonic Japan has revealed its newest innovation to the VoIP phone world - the VS-HPS200S, a unique cordless phone complete with a seven-inch Android tablet. According to a statement, this pretty pair was strategically designed to offer users a more 'connected' experience at home, and is expected to have a Q1 2013 launch.
Panasonic has enjoyed quite an impressive collection of accolades and honors for its robust line of SIP phones over the years. As we welcome the New Year, let's take a look back to recognize all of the hard work the company has put in to achieve such prestige for its SIP phone solutions.
The SIP market has remained strong throughout 2012. In fact, according to a new study of 7,000 Information Technology (IT) managers from Eastern Management (News - Alert) Group, 82 percent of new communications systems support the SIP protocol. Many factors have irreversibly opened the doors of opportunity for the growing SIP market to expand as we get ready to pop the champagne and count down to the New Year.
Last week, Thomas Cross of Telecom Reseller suggested something very interesting as we approach the New Year and strive to break new technological limitations. He asked, "What is the ultimate endpoint when considering SIP devices?"
There are certainly no lumps of coal this year for Panasonic's KX-UT248-B Executive SIP Phone, which was today presented with TMC's 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year award.
A complex communication infrastructure is often beyond the financial limits of small or growing businesses, but a hosted PBX solution can provide a cost effective alternative. By providing fully automated call answering and routing functionalities, such solutions enable the small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to add a professional touch to their customer interactions.
While the benefits surrounding the use of SIP phones have clearly been defined, not all companies have willingly adopted this technology in the office. It's easy to hold fast to the traditional network and assume the technologies involved provide the best protection against poor service, but are these assumptions correct?
