Swyx extends its portfolio: USB Handset P280 is first in series of own manufactured UC devices

London, UK, 6th March 2012 – Swyx, a market-leading vendor of Unified Communications (UC) for SMEs is to extend its product portfolio in the future with its own UC devices. The SwyxIt! P280 Handset represents the first time that the company has designed and manufactured a telephone itself. The handset is optimised to work with its software-based UC-solution SwyxWare and represents the first in a series of further Swyx hardware devices. The SwyxIt! P280 Handset will be available in the second quarter of 2012.

HD sound quality and support of all Plug-in functions

As a flexible extension of the desktop, the SwyxIt! P280 Handset offers voice quality with HD audio, support for all plugin functions together with SwyxWare 2011 R2, as well as the possibility of additional headset support with Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7. Other benefits of the hand-set include hook functionality and features like open listening and hands-free mode. The integrated loudspeakers also allow individual call signalling. The P280 is powered via the USB.

“Customers demand devices with more sophisticated design”

“From our sales partners, we have seen an increasing demand for phones with more sophisticated designs, in line with rising customers’ expectations. We wanted to offer a modern telephone with a contemporary look and feel, which combined with rich functionality and was optimised perfectly with our communication software. The P280 represents the ideal telephone to take full advantage of Unified Communications”, explains Dr. Wolfgang Schröder, CEO at Swyx, regarding the decision to develop and produce its own devices.

Further phones planned - P280 is available Q2/2012

The P280 represents the forerunner in a series of planned devices: “We are planning the development and production of further devices, giving greater variety to our portfolio in the future. For example there will be a model that will facilitate the integration of mobile phones”, says Ralf Ebbinghaus, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Service at Swyx.
