Bunch of new VoIP handsets – the fixed variety – are coming to market. Chinese manufactures are churning out these suckers by the thousands, and someone is going to start reselling them here in US soon enough. QX001 is a VoIP phone that features a 50MHz PA1688 chip, 2M SDRAM and 1M flash memory; supports major G.7XX and GSM610 audio codecs, DHCP and has 10/100M Ethernet LAN and cable modem connections. It can be configured through Web browser (preferable Internet Explorer 6) and Telnet. The other phone which is just out is the TCL-IP (6) VoIP phone. The phone has wide-range network access through ADSL, DDN, cable modem, WAN and LAN connections; features 16M SDRAM and has two 10/100M ports and among other things can also be used as VPN.
One thought on “(New) VoIP phones cometh”
Wake me up when there are CPEs that facilitate URI based addressing, presence management and other next-gen features including freedom from a service provider. Devices that maintain standard telephone user interface and enslave me to a service provider are so retrograde.
