Zultys launches push-to-talk WiFi phone

Zultys Technologies will launch a new wireless voice over IP (VoIP) phone next month that supports instant messaging, push-to-talk conferencing with multiple users, and end-to-end encryption.

Zultys Technologies will launch a new wireless voice over IP (VoIP) phone next month that supports instant messaging, push-to-talk conferencing with multiple users, and end-to-end encryption.

The WIP 2 phone is designed for use on wireless Lans in campus environments and arrives ahead of rival solutions from the likes of Avaya and Nokia.

The WIP 2 will cost between £145 and £215 dependent on the number ordered and comes with an eight-hour talk-time. It is designed to offer a single phone solution for employees.

Zultys president Iain Milnes, speaking at last weekend’s NetEvents IT symposium in Italy, said, “Customers tell us they would like to take their desktop IP phone with them rather than have a second mobile phone with reduced capabilities.”

The WIP 2 runs a Linux operating system and is connected to a VoIP network using the flexible SIP standard.

Users can see whether fellow employees are available on the network through its display, and use the push-to-talk facility for multiple users when the phone is supported by a Zultys VoIP PBX.

The single-button push-to-talk facility is aimed at medical, construction and other working environments.

Avaya and Nokia are expected to co-launch a wireless IP phone next January, which will also have mobile GSM capabilities. The Zultys phone doesn’t support mobile networks.
