Concord, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) March 29, 2009
Aastra Telecom, a leading provider of standards-based corded and wireless SIP telephones and systems, today announced the addition of two new models to its SIP phone portfolio.
Designed to deliver enterprise-grade advanced features and performance normally found at higher pricepoints, the Model 6730i and Model 6731i SIP phones share the same powerful, open-standards firmware design found on all Aastra 67xi telephones (formally the 5xi series telephones). Offering up to 6 lines with call appearances, full duplex speakerphones, intercom, paging and auto answer features, as well as XML browser capabilities, these SIP phones are ideally suited for regular telephone usage in small and large business environments as well as enterprise and home-based applications.
"With the introduction of these two models, Aastra has broadened it's portfolio of end point choices for our customers," said John Drolet, US Vice President of Sales, Aastra USA. "The 6731i telephone, which is available now, is unmatched in the market place for its small desk foot print, price and performance. The product supports Power Over Ethernet (POE), TLS and STRP security support as well as the full range of features offered in the Aastra 2.x SIP firmware release. We feel that in today's business environment, these additions to our 67xi Series portfolio of SIP Telephones will be well received by the market".
Based on feedback received during the beta trials, customers are very excited about these new additions to the Aastra SIP portfolio. "The new Aastra 6731i telephone is one of the most elegant, popular priced SIP phones that I have ever seen. This phone is a winner!" said Jeronimo Romero, CEO at EUS Networks in New York City. Douglas Breitmayer at phusionPointe in Salt Lake City added "The footprint is nice. I like all of the extra soft keys available for application usage and additional functionality."
The Model 6731i SIP telephone is now shipping and can be ordered through Aastra's regular distribution channels. Advanced orders for the Model 6730i can be placed now with an expected ship date of April 2009.
