Konftel has announced that its Konftel 800 conference phone has been certified to connect to Zoom Phone as a SIP device. The Zoom Hardware Certification Program is for manufacturers that produce devices designed to integrate with Zoom, and allows vendors to certify that select hardware is compatible with Zoom software.
Torbjörn Karlsson, product manager, Konftel, explained, “The Konftel 800 is the first in our product range to be certified to work with Zoom Phone, which when paired together deliver a natural and fluent meeting experience.
“Zoom Phone includes traditional PBX features that enable users to talk and interact in new ways for businesses of all sizes. It’s also secure and reliable, delivering secure HD audio with enterprise-class reliability and quality of service. The Konftel 800 and Zoom Phone platform represents a seamless and natural fit, combining exceptional audio with flexibility, ease of use and quick set-up.”
Jeff Fox, senior product marketing manager, Zoom, added, “Over the past two and a half years, we’ve focused on creating a phone solution that’s easy enough for small and midsize businesses to use and deploy and has all the advanced capabilities large multinational organizations require to support global users. Certification of the Konftel 800 further adds to the appeal of our Zoom Phone service.”
The Konftel 800 features beamforming microphones and audio expansion capabilities and is suitable for small to large meeting rooms. It was unveiled in 2019 and is a hybrid conference phone designed to meet the needs arising from the rapid migration to VoIP platforms.
