ShoreTel, the provider of Pure IP Unified Communications solutions, today announced the ShorePhone IP 565g, a six-line IP telephone fully equipped with a high-resolution colour display, Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and new Bluetooth headset integration.
The company says the phone addresses the communication needs of busy executives, their administrative assistants, and other demanding professionals.
The use of colour display technology in consumer products, driven by demand for more attractive, easier-to-use devices such as mobile phones and GPS systems, has raised the expectations of many enterprise users regarding their desktop telephones. The ShorePhone IP 565g features a high-resolution backlit colour screen that makes it easy for users to see important call information such as Caller ID, missed calls and voicemail indicators. They can also see clear and intuitive indications of call status, such as hold or mute status. These features, along with support for six lines, help ensure efficient communications and productive telephone calls. Support for Bluetooth headsets adds greater flexibility and comfort for callers who spend a lot of time on the telephone.
The ShorePhone IP 565g is ideal for organisations deploying Gigabit Ethernet to the desktop. The built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch eliminates the need for multiple network drops to workspaces by extending full Gigabit speeds to the PC connected to the IP telephone’s Ethernet switch. The ShorePhone IP 565g complements the mid-range ShorePhone IP 265 colour telephone, giving customers colour display options across the ShoreTel product line.
“ShoreTel continues to broaden its unified communications solutions to help businesses streamline their business processes and achieve the highest levels of employee productivity,” said Steve Timmerman, vice president of marketing at ShoreTel. “With the unique combination of features in the ShorePhone IP 565g, ShoreTel has set a new standard for usability and manageability, and created a sophisticated telephone to help the most demanding users stay productive.”
