First Look: AudioCodes 420HD VoIP Phone
When I say AudioCodes you say Gateways . . . AudioCodes . . . Gateways . . . AudioCodes . . . Gateways . . . but there is so much more to AudioCodes then gateways and the latest announcement from AudioCodes proves that point.
Today they announced the latest addition to their family of VoIP phones with the AudioCodes 420HD.
The AudioCodes 420HD is a two line HD VoIP phone available in both black and white and has a 128×48 graphical LCD display.
The 420HD features:
- A full duplex speakerphone.
- Dual LAN/WAN 10/100 RJ-45 ports.
- PoE enabled but, does not ship with an AC power supply.
Who Is It For?
Seeing that it is a 2 line phone that supports HD voice and, as described by AudioCodes, packaged “at an affordable price,” my guess is that the phone will be targeted at employees in call centers and telephone sales. The 420HD has all of the standard feature keys for voicemail, transfer, redial etc and has larger ergonomic keys.
While it doesn’t shake up the VoIP phone market with its appearance or interfaces it does check all the boxes from a features side to be a good reliable business VoIP phone.
The press release does state that they are coming out with a 6 line phone with a larger display which will be more suited for receptionists and executives.
At the time of writing there hasn’t been a release date given for the 420HD VoIP phone. Additionally there is currently no pricing available.
