Aastra, a leading company at the forefront of the enterprise communications market, announced that its latest generation of DECT handsets, as well as its new Wi-Fi phone, are now shipping in the United States.
Designed with the professional's needs in mind, the new 600d line of DECT phones helps businesses keep their workforce more responsive and productive while on the move. With its high quality and confidential calls through voice optimization, DECT offers a cost-effective mobility solution for companies that need to supply wireless phones to staff primarily mobile within the company premise, making it especially suitable for vertical markets such as education, healthcare or retail.
All three of the new 600d SIP DECT phones benefit from a wealth of features similar to a mobile phone making the adoption of these handsets very intuitive: large display combined with navigation keys and the user-friendly menu, extensive directories with multiple entries and multiple user profiles ring tone assignment. Other features specifically respond to professional requirements: an ambient noise filter and self adjusting ring tone level for loud environments, drop resilience and ergonomical design.
The Aastra 610d is an entry level handset with a large monochrome back-lit display and hands free use. With a dustproof case the phone is ideal for those working in environments such as warehouses or industrial workshops. The Aastra 620d and 630d DECT handsets feature an illuminated two inch graphic color display and eight additional programmable keys to make line control and navigation easier. The phones support Bluetooth® headsets and have extended battery life. With its robust, ruggedized cases, the Aastra 630d DECT handset also boasts an emergency key and a 'man down' feature that can alert other users when no movement is registered, making the handsets particularly useful for workers in industrial environments or for security staff. The handset's water jet proof design makes it useful for the healthcare industry too as the phone can be easily and safely wiped with disinfectant.
Designed to work with existing WLAN networks, the Aastra 312w offers a powerful, flexible, feature rich SIP handset that is supported on a wide variety of Access Points and Call Control platforms. Suitable for small, medium and large enterprise environments, the Aastra 312w increases business productivity by providing secure and seamless voice services for mobile workforces.
With handset features such as high resolution large color display, hands free operation, headset jack, vibrating alert and removable memory card, the Aastra 312w offers a very affordable and scalable mobility solution for any business requirement.
"As a leading provider of business communication solutions, Aastra is in tune with the increasing market demand for mobility solutions. Enterprises need solutions that keep workers productive while they move throughout the campus, without incurring skyrocketing cellular costs. These latest additions to our portfolio address both those issues," said Tim Whittington, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Aastra USA.
The Aastra 610d and 620d DECT handsets, as well as the 312w are now shipping. Advanced orders for the Aastra 630d can be placed today with an expected ship date of end of September, 2009.
