IP phone maker Yealink (News
) is starting to make inroads in the U.S. market with its latest VoIP phones, and one of them - the Yealink SIP-T28P IP phone - caught the attention of TMC CIO Tom Keating (News
), our in-house gadget expert.
The SIP-T28P, a six-line phone sporting a large 320x160 LCD screen, has full HD voice support (wideband codec, wideband handset, wideband speakerphone). And it was reportedly was one of the first IP phones to support the G.722 wideband codec that is now all the rage in the VoIP market.
Here's what Keating had to say
"My first impression of the SIP-T28P was that I liked the large LCD and the sleek ergonomic design which had large easy to press buttons and a useful 4-way arrow navigation keypad," he blogged. "I connected it to our network and logged into the Web admin page to configure the phone. The web interface was easy enough to navigate. I had no trouble adding the SIP credentials, configuring the NTP server, adding speed dials, and other various configuration options."
