Michael Graves and I have both talked about how we think these phones are a revolution for the SoHo market. How will they be supported? Who will set them up, provision them, get them working with different pbx and SIP providers? Michael’s most recent blog post talks about the Gigaset DE380IPR, the inexpensive wideband capable desk phone.
Our guest today is Anthony Stankus, Gigaset Communications product Manager for North America. The Gigaset IP DECT products which include: A580IP system (base and handset), S675IP system (base and handset), A58H accessory handset, S67H accessory handset, SL78H high-end accessory handset.
Tony will be with us on the ZipDX wideband conference bridge to answer these questions and any others you can collect.
