Exodus Audio has launched a new SIP WLAN-only IP phones aimed at the SME commercial market.

The UniData 7800G is 802.11b/g and SIP compliant, with full WEP and WPA security features, designed to integrate with existing wireless infrastructures as well as new installations. Already fully tested on a wide range of IP PBX platforms, the handset is growing in popularity with installers and end-users alike.

Paul Price, Exodus Audio’s Managing Director, says, “We have been supplying wireless handsets for several years, and this is the first unit we’ve found that combines robustness and reliability with affordability. Long battery life and the ability to roam seamlessly between APs make this handset very appealing.”

The installer perspective is similarly positive; Graham Compton, from telecoms integrator Business Edge Technologies, comments, “We’ve deployed over 100 of these units on a Wi-Fi infrastructure using SIP extensions on a Mitel MCD into a demanding hotel application in London. The set-up and commissioning was trouble-free, and the client is simply delighted with the product’s performance and features.”

Exodus Audio is looking to expand its network of distributors and dealers for what it expects will be high demand in this growth sector.
