Panasonic Announces Interoperability Certification for SIP Cordless Phone System with Epygi Quadro IP PBX
SECAUCUS, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Panasonic, the leader in business and home telephone systems*, announced
today that three Panasonic SIP Cordless Phone (News - Alert) products, the KX-TGP550,
KX-UT123 and KX-UT136, have been certified by Epygi Technologies
interoperable with the Epygi Quadro IP PBX. This alliance leverages
Panasonic's (News - Alert) global leadership in the DECT cordless telephone market with
Epygi's innovative enterprise PBX.
The Panasonic SIP Cordless Phones Systems boast outstanding voice
quality and a range of productivity-boosting options in a feature-rich
desk phone replacement. DECT 6.0 ensures no interference with wireless
networks, and the convenient cordless design eliminates the need to run
dedicated network wiring to each employee workstation.
The Epygi (News - Alert) Quadro IP PBX is designed for small to mid-size businesses and
supports up to 300 concurrent calls. It offers support for eight IP
phone extensions and up to 1,000 on the larger enterprise PBX (News - Alert) solution.
In addition, this system supports SIP lines to connect to an internet
service provider, FXO (Foreign Exchange Office) and E1/T1 lines for a
medium-sized hybrid office environment. Any user on the system, whether
they are on an IP or analog phone, will have access to the advanced VoIP
features. Remote users will be able to take advantage of the cost-saving
and performance-enhancing features.
"When we first heard that Panasonic was launching SIP telephone
solutions, the Epygi team was eager to further develop our relationship
with the company. With Panasonic's extensive experience in the business
telephone market, we knew these phones would be a great addition to our
IP phone partner program," said Warren Sonnen, Director of Product
Management, Epygi Technologies (News - Alert). "Now that testing and certification are
completed, we are excited to move forward with our relationship and
support Panasonic SIP telephones on all Epygi products."
Panasonic's KX-UT series offers a communications solution for small and
mid-size businesses that utilize the latest in Hosted and Open Source
PBX technology. Featuring wide-band, high-definition audio (G. 722
codec) coupled with echo cancellation and an expanded acoustic chamber,
the KX-UT series offers crisp sound quality for crystal clear
conversation. The series is designed to complement a company's existing
communication infrastructure, yielding a low total cost of ownership.
The KX-UT136-B is user-friendly and easy to operate, with 24
programmable feature/functionality keys. It features a six-line backlit
graphical LCD and 2 Ethernet ports. The KX-UT123-B offers HD Voice, a
three-line backlit graphical LCD and two Ethernet ports. All KX-UT
series models are Power over Ethernet (PoE)-ready which eliminates the
need for additional electrical adaptors. The energy-saving Eco Mode
offers lowered power consumption and a two-year limited warranty
protects a user's investment well into the life of the phone.
The Panasonic KX-TGP500 features a corded base unit and one cordless
handset, both with large white back-lit LCD screens. It is expandable up
to 6 DECT 6.0 cordless handsets and supports up to 8 phone numbers and 3
simultaneous calls. It boasts Wide Band Audio (G.722), five-hour talk
time, and 10-day standby and one-touch call transfer with Busy Lamp
