Jabra Enters Enterprise Speakerphone Market

Jabra has launched two new hands-free audio devices for businesses and professionals. The Jabra SPEAK 410 marks Jabra’s entry into the enterprise speakerphone market and combines, according to the vendor, 360° conferencing with portability, superior sound and UC compatibility, while the Jabra GO 660 Bluetooth headset system allows users to switch between softphone and mobile phone using the same compact headset.

The Jabra SPEAK 410 is primed for high quality calling, with built-in echo cancellation for no distortion of sound, even at maximum volume level, and full duplex and wideband sound. Jabra says it is also the only product with a true 360° microphone, allowing a group of people to be heard from all sides of the device, but the 3.5mm headset port also lets users quickly and easily attach a headset for privacy.

The SPEAK 410 is the most recent addition to Jabra’s portfolio of products that targeted at Unified Communications (UC) environments. It offers full duplex and wideband sound (6,800 Hz) for maximum call clarity. It is also claimed to be the first speakerphone to be optimised for Microsoft Lync 2010.

Only 5in in diameter, the SPEAK 410 is also highly portable, ensuring any venue can become a meeting room without needing a permanent conference call installation, whether it’s a home office, boardroom or hotel suite. Integrated cable management allows for immediate, easy set up and the speakerphone also comes with a travel case.

Developed for active professionals, the Jabra GO 660 is said to be a next generation multiuse, Bluetooth headset system. The plug and play compact headset can be used to switch between softphone and mobile phone via the Jabra LINK 320 USB Bluetooth adapter, to boost mobility and productivity.

The Jabra SPEAK 410 will be available from the end of November 2010 and the Jabra GO 660 is available now.
