Nextiva, a provider of cloud-based virtual PBX services, now offers and supports Cisco’s latest line of business VoIP phones. The Cisco SPA 300 and 500 series IP phones offer many popular features and hardware reliability, and are priced competitively.

The Cisco SPA 300 and 500 VoIP phones are designed for use with full-featured virtual PBX services like Nextiva's. Each Cisco phone provides all the traditional business phone features, such as call waiting, call forwarding, and call transfer.

“One of the benefits of choosing Nextiva is knowing you always have access to the latest VoIP technology,” says Nextiva CEO Thomas Gorny. “The new Cisco phones are some of the best out there, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide them to our small business customers.”

Affordable, reliable and easy-to-use, Cisco SPA 300 Series IP Phones are ideal for small businesses and home offices. These basic IP phones offer a full set of features everyone can use. Users get the benefits of IP telephony while keeping costs low.

Benefits include:

--Cisco SPA IP Phones are specifically designed to incorporate the new features and functionalities continually introduced by service providers.

--Cisco SPA 300 Series IP Phones can connect directly to an Internet telephone service provider, an IP PBX system, or a large-scale IP Centrex deployment.

--Cisco SPA 500 Series IP Phones are designed to improve and simplify communications across the entire company.

--These phones offer features for everyone from executives and cubicle workers to staff on the manufacturing floor. Employees stay productive, and have reliable access to voice and data communications wherever they go, but costs stay low.

--Features for integrated communications are right on the phone letting employees make voice calls and access corporate data, such as company directories, no matter where they happen to be working.

--Employees can take advantage of their phone systems features, including: speakerphone, redial, call transfer, conferencing, paging, intercom, volume control, message-waiting and voicemail indicator lights, mute key, headset use, and call history directories.

--These phones have been tested to make sure they provide comprehensive interoperability with equipment from SIP-based Voice over IP (VoIP) leaders.

Cisco’s SPA 300 and 500 series phones were developed to replace one of the best selling lines of VoIP phones in history, the Linksys SPA 900 series, the company says.

Nextiva customers can contact a representative at (800) 983-4289 to discuss upgrading their VoIP service to include the new Cisco phones.

The Nextiva Office phone system is a next-generation communications platform providing small businesses with big business features at small business prices. The company says its goal is to make owning and running a small business easier, less costly and more profitable. Products and services have been engineered to give small business owners advantages previously only available only to large enterprises.
