COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EnGenius Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of versatile, high-performance networking and telecommunications solutions for businesses and consumers, today announced the expansion of its industry-leading DuraFon family of long-range, durable cordless phone systems with the launch of DuraFon-SIP™, the industry’s first durable, long-range SIP cordless phone system.
DuraFon-SIP is designed to deliver reliable, long-range communications over large areas such as golf courses, resort properties, or high-rise hotels, or in harsh environments like industrial plants, oil and gas fields, and warehouses. DuraFon-SIP, which works with hosted VoIP services or any IP-PBX system that supports the standard SIP protocol, supports two-way intercom and PTT broadcast modes in addition to the cordless phone capabilities to provide users with multiple modes of communication.
“DuraFon-SIP leverages the proven long-range wireless technology that has positioned our DuraFon product line as the leading long-range, durable business cordless phone solution in the industry for more than 15 years,” explained Andy Chang, General Manager at EnGenius. “The extreme range of our DuraFon products eliminates the need for the deployment of repeaters or multiple cells to cover large areas, reducing capital expenditures and minimizing the costs of managing and maintaining the system.”
Extreme Range Lowers Capital Expenditures and Enables Faster Deployments
DuraFon-SIP features EnGenius’ high power, easy-to-deploy single-cell technology that covers up to 250,000 square feet indoors, 3,000 acres outdoors, and penetrates up to 12 floors providing extended range that would require multiple base stations or repeaters with other solutions. Combining 900MHz Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology with high RF transmission and sensitivity enables DuraFon-SIP to provide superior long-range performance. Minimizing the amount of equipment required to cover the premises lowers capital expenditures and makes it quicker and easier to deploy than other long-range business cordless phone systems.
DuraFon-SIP operates independently of your existing Wi-Fi network eliminating concerns about roaming or QoS issues associated with voice communications over a WLAN. Since DuraFon-SIP utilizes the 900MHz frequency there is also no need to worry about the system receiving or causing interference to existing 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks.
Durable Handsets Reduce Operational Expenses and Minimize Downtime
Tested to withstand six-foot drops over 50 consecutive times onto concrete floors, the proven durability of the EnGenius DuraFon handsets ensures that the phones will survive in the most challenging environments, even when they are subjected to drops and shocks. The proven reliability of the DuraFon-SIP system, backed by over a decade of continued innovation and testing of the DuraFon product line, ensures less downtime and reduces overall operating expenses for the life of the system.
The DuraFon-SIP Base Station Web Interface makes configuration and management of the system quick and easy. Easily configure the system and manage the master phone book via an intuitive browser-based interface and effortlessly transfer updates to each handset over the air.
Flexible, Multi-Mode Communications Provides Instant, Long-Range Connectivity for Any Scenario
In addition to the long-range cordless phone capabilities, DuraFon-SIP provides an independent two-way intercom function to enable handset-to-handset communication without going through the base station for quick contact with specific users without group chatter. DuraFon-SIP also features the favored “Push-to-Talk” Broadcast feature, which allows users to communicate between all handsets or to a group of handsets for instant response without the wait.
DuraFon-SIP features an RJ45 Ethernet port and supports 10 SIP accounts with four concurrent talk paths. An RJ11 PSTN port is ideal for use as an auxiliary port for connecting devices such as a call box.
The EnGenius DuraFon-SIP is now available in North America via authorized retailers, distributors and value-added resellers at a MSRP of $1,499.99 for the DuraFon-SIP system which includes the base station and one handset. Additional handsets and base stations are available at MSRPs of $399.99 and $1,199.99, respectively.
