Panasonic Announces Interoperability Certification for Its SIP Telephones With Vintalk

Certification Confirms Interoperability of Panasonic's Scalable SIP Endpoints With Vintalk's Hosted IP PBX and SIP Solutions

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwire - Nov 17, 2011) - Panasonic System Networks Company of America, the leader in business and home telephone systems*, today announced that Vintalk has certified the Panasonic SIP Phone Systems, The TGP series and UT series, for use with their Hosted IP PBX and SIP Trunking solutions. This alliance leverages Panasonic's global leadership in the DECT cordless telephone market with Vintalk's best-of-breed Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) network, adding up to a winning combination.

Panasonic's SIP phones offer flexible, cost-effective communications solutions for both the home office and business environments. Plug and play simplicity allow for businesses to be up and running right away, while expandable system options provide immediate cost-saving benefits and flexible configuration options. Combining state-of-the-art telephony with business-friendly features, Panasonic's SIP phones boast outstanding voice quality for crystal clear business communication.

Since 2005, Vintalk has been deploying its Hosted IP PBX and SIP Trunking solutions to customers worldwide. Interoperability with Panasonic's Scalable SIP phones provides customers with even more communication solutions to fit their business needs. Panasonic SIP desktop phones offer outstanding design quality and encompass a wide range of business-class features. Additionally, Panasonic DECT handsets provide a user-friendly, cost-effective, cordless solution which is ideal for warehouses, retail stores and other business environments which require handset mobility. The Panasonic family of SIP phones offer competitive pricing and provide an all-inclusive communication solution for businesses.

"For many companies, the Panasonic solution offers a lower up front capital outlay without sacrificing quality or features such as high definition voice," said Jayson Jones, SVP Business Development, Vintalk.

With flexible configuration options, it has never been easier to deploy Panasonic SIP phones with Vintalk's Hosted IP PBX or SIP Trunking solutions. The reduced hardware costs and simplicity of routing calls over an internet connection, VoIP, can add up to significant savings on monthly telephone bills. This enables the home office or small business environments to take advantage of a larger variety of business-class features such as call forwarding, intercom, conferencing, voicemail to email, fax to email, and many more unified communications tools.
