SwyxWare version 6.20 supports dual mode mobile phones & new range of system phones

London, UK, 29th October 2008 – Swyx a market-leading vendor of Unified Communications for SMEs has announced the launch of its latest product SwyxWare version 6.20 which introduces a new range of system phones and gives customers the possibility to use dual mode mobile phones. Altogether, SwyxWare now supports more than 1,000 varieties of telephone devices giving users the freedom to choose what type of phone suits them best.

Alexandra Ernst, VP Corporate Development at Swyx, explains the strategy: “With the new SwyxWare version we are not only announcing support for a new generation of system phones, but we are widening the range of telephone devices that can be used. With traditional telephone systems the selection of phones has been severely limited to those models provided by the phone manufacturer. Today SwyxWare supports a diverse range of devices including low cost USB phones in combination with a feature-rich softphone, deskphones with large colour displays, DECT/WLAN/SIP terminals, mobile phones and smartphones with Windows Mobile, Blackberry and Symbian operating systems.”

The new Swyx L6xx telephone series covers the models SwyxPhone L620, L640, L660 and L680. All devices have a tiltable, graphic display, access to call lists, directories, caller information and other applications (starting from SwyxPhone L660, in colour). These are available in two colour variants ‘ice blue’ and ‘lava’. The RRP for these phones ranges from between 200 and 700 GBP plus VAT.

SwyxWare version 6.20 also supports selected dual mode mobile phones such as the Nokia models E65, E61i and E90. By combining mobiles with SwyxWare users can fully benefit of Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC). When a WLAN infrastructure is present then telephone calls can be made or received via SIP, but when a WLAN is not available, calls are routed via the GSM network. Companies not only benefit from employees having a single number, but also from the cost savings associated with replacing two phones with a single device.

The broad range of devices supported by SwyxWare version 6.20 includes:

• USB devices: Various hand and headsets can be attached via a USB interface simply with PCs or laptops to work in combination with the Swyx Softphone

• System phones: The IP deskphones L4xx, L5xx as well as the new product range L6xx, offer comprehensive fully featured equipment at a competitive price point.

• SIP based telephone SwyxPhone S315: This entry level SIP variant allows you to take full advantage of IP telephony using the SIP standard.

• Mobile devices: With mobile phones and smartphones (Symbian, Windows Mobile or Blackberry operating system) as well as DECT and WLAN telephones co-workers can have access to the same telephony functionality that they could expect in the office.

• Third party SIP based phones

• Support for ISDN and analogue devices

SwyxWare version 6.20 will be available end of November 2008. Upgrades are free for existing Swyx users that subscribe to the Swyx Update Service (SUS).
