Advice from Crazy Tom: Try Out Panasonic VoIP Equipment this Month
By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor
We all know that routines can get stale (I mean how many days can we actually bring PB&J for lunch). And for Crazy Tom – VoIP Supply’s fictional character that is tasked with finding the latest and greatest VoIP equipment deals – he has had enough as he is asking consumers to break out of their routines and consider some new pieces of equipment.
“I tend to get myself in a repetitive rut sometimes doing the same things again and again,” Crazy Tom writes in this week’s newsletter. “From my morning routine to my nightly dinner of cider and Cornish pasties, it's the same day in and day out. While this unwavering devotion to routine is somewhat comforting in its mundane repetitiveness it's good to mix things up a bit. This month is all about different things and changes for me; mixing up my routine, trying new drinks, and dinners for the better or the worse. I might even try one of these salad things I've been hearing so much about.”
“The same goes for VoIP phones, why not break out of the repetitiveness of buying the same model and manufacturer and try something new,” he added. “Why not a Panasonic SIP phone? There is no better time than now because for the month of November there is Free Ground Shipping on all Panasonic SIP phones.”
Some of Crazy Tom’s favorite Panasonic SIP phones include the Panasonic KX-TGP550 , a phone that responds to the needs of SIP IP-Centrix/Hosted PBX systems and Asterisk (News - Alert) users. The phone boasts a convenient design so that there is no need to set up a system telephone at every base. The SIP phone system also allows consumers to use a range of convenient services provided by the carrier such as Call Forward, Voice Mail etc. Also, this system can be used as a wireless terminal.
Another good choice from Panasonic includes the Panasonic KX-UT123B, a PoE enabled SIP deskphone offering Wideband audio and two SIP accounts. The dual 10/100 PoE enabled Ethernet ports allow you to pass through a single network cable drop through the KX-UT123B to your PC allowing both voice and data with a single RJ45 port, according to Crazy Tom.
