ADTRAN (News - Alert) Inc., a provider of cloud connectivity, virtual mobility and enterprise communications solutions, has launched a new line of IP phones for flexible and feature-rich voice, video and unified communications (UC) solutions.
Officials with ADTRAN said the company’s solution set of IP Phones now includes six new models that can be deployed on a hosted- or premises-based communications network.
Company officials said the expanded line of ADTRAN IP Phones fosters a wide range of business productivity needs, and allows for various deployment scenarios, both in hosted and premises-based applications.
According to company officials, in a hosted environment, service providers can leverage ADTRAN's gateway solutions, now coupled with a broader selection of standards-based phones. Both the gateways and the phones are fully certified with industry-leading soft switches.
In a premises-based deployment, businesses can leverage the flexibility of ADTRAN's NetVanta UC solutions along with the breadth of ADTRAN endpoints to achieve more simplified installation and single vendor pre-and post-sales support.
"ADTRAN's unified communications product line has enabled customers to achieve enhanced efficiency and convenience within their business communications systems. Our expanded line of IP Phones gives our hosted and premises-based UC customers even greater flexibility and options, all from a single point-of-contact," Chris Thompson (News - Alert), senior product manager for ADTRAN's enterprise networks division, said in a statement.
Thompson said the new selection of IP phones and deployment scenarios offers the company’s customers more options, features and applications that will allow their business to achieve a more complete UC experience, and their employees to achieve a greater level of productivity.
The new line of ADTRAN IP Phones offers a wide range of traditional and advanced enterprise-grade features, including high-resolution multi-touch displays, USB ports, Bluetooth, xHTML microbrowser, and a full duplex hands-free speakerphone that utilizes legendary Acoustic Clarity (News - Alert) Technology for excellent sound quality and noise-free and echo-free conversation.
Moreover, each new phone model also includes built-in IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) circuitry and a dual-port Ethernet switch to enable flexible deployment and savings on cabling expenses.
