VoIP Supply Offering Polycom Conference Phone Upgrades

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Officals with VoIP Equipment provider VoIP Supply, are pitching the IP 5000 conference phone as a great option for "small conference rooms and executive offices," touting its clarity.

"The Polycom (News - Alert) Soundstation IP 5000 features Polycom HD Voice technology, SIP interoperability, and a modern design that is ideal for smaller rooms at an affordable price," officials say.

The conference phone, a one line SIP phone that boosts Polycom's HD Voice technology, uses the G.722 codec and enhanced hardware features, to make conference calls sound amazingly clear and life-like.

In addition, the Polycom IP5000 has a seven-foot microphone pickup range and small footprint, which is why the vendor is marketing it as a tool for executive offices and small conference rooms with up to six participants.

"The SoundStation IP 5000 offers full-duplex technology that eliminates distracting drop-outs and the latest in echo cancellation advancements. The IP 5000 has three sensitive microphones with 360 degrees of coverage assuring all participants in the room will be heard from up to seven feet away."

Not only does the offering provide SIP interoperability, allowing it to work with a broad array of IP-PBX (News - Alert) and hosted platforms, it also has integrated Power over Ethernet, which simplifies set up, and a high-resolution white backlit LCD for ease of use.

The Polycom HD Voice for high-fidelity calls at up to 14 kHz - this means, company officials say, "conference calls sound as natural as being there." And the company's patented Acoustic Clarity (News - Alert) Technology delivers what the vendor's pitching as "a conference phone experience with no compromises."

It has an integrated PoE with optional AC power adapter, high-resolution 248 x 68 pixel white backlit LCD display with custom intensity control, a shared call/Bridged Line appearance and Busy Lamp Field and corporate directory access, user-configurable contact directory and call history.

Multi-language support and robust interoperability -- compatible with a broad array of SIP call platforms to maximize voice quality and feature availability while simplifying management and administration are also available.
