IPEVO Stresses Flexibility at VON.x With Multi-Vendor USB Handset

Compact USB Handset Seamlessly Integrates With VOIP Softphones and Skype Software

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2008) - IPEVO, a leading manufacturer of experience-driven Internet devices, is showcasing its slim USB handset for VoIP at Spring VON.x held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California from March 18-19. IPEVO's handset is a flexible solution for VoIP offering seamless integration with Skype software, Avaya one-X Desktop Edition, and other VoIP applications.

Emphasizing the company's commitment to supporting a broader range of SIP-based VoIP applications, IPEVO is exhibiting the USB handset and other devices in Booth D-914 in the Digium Asterisk World pavilion, dedicated to the companies that are leading the way in Open Source products and services.

"IPEVO devices are designed to take the complexity out of technology, and make VoIP effortless and second nature for business and personal use," said Ed Lucero, VP & general manager of IPEVO North America. "We wanted to make our products work with as many applications and environments as possible. With the new USB handset, you can enjoy the same seamless experience whether you're using it with a PC and Avaya one-X Desktop Edition at work, or for personal Skype calls on your Mac at home."

IPEVO's USB handset features a slim, compact design that has received numerous international design awards. An optional back-lit LCD display brings caller ID and contact lists right to the palm of the hand. Built-in recording capabilities let users record VoIP conversations at the touch of a button. Engineered and optimized for Internet Telephony, the handset ensures exceptional sound quality with 16k sampling rate for VoIP to VoIP calls and an 8k rate for calls to landlines.
