With recent news from ITEXPO Las Vegas that Cisco had let go fifty staff who were responsible for development of their SPA300 and SPA500 IP phones, it seems fitting that Obihai gave the first public demonstration of their new Obi1062 IP Phone at the very same show. The OBi1062 shown in the image above has the 16 key side-car attached.
As expected, the phone uses the OBiTALK cloud based management portal for easy plug-n-call setup. They have an LCD display and all the features you'd expect from a cutting edge manufacturer like Obihai. They are due to be released in the 3rd quarter of 2014 and will be on offer to VoIP2Go Customers as soon as they become available. Here's a sneak preview of the display...
VoIP2Go is integrated into Obihai's OBiTALK portal and it's very simple to download all our settings into the OBi1062 IP Phone so that you can be making and receiving calls within minutes of taking it out of the box. We can help you set it up, we can help you keep it running smoothly and we can help you get the most out of the extensive feature list.
The OBi1062 IP phone electronics and acoustics were designed and developed by Obihai engineers in California. They are built with a high performance system-on-a-chip platform to guarantee crystal clear phone calls. In-service management and software upgrades keep maintenance requirements to an absolute minimum. G722, G711, G726, G729, iLBC and OPUS VoIP codecs are supported to avoid transcoding and ensure you are always able to get connected with optimum quality.
Device-to-device calling is available as standard via the VoIP2Go platform and also via the OBiTALK platform using the proprietary OBiTALK voice protocol. One thing that is special about the VoIP2Go service is that when you make an internal call within your LAN, the voice portion of the call remains within your LAN and flows directly between your VoIP phones. VoIP2Go does not proxy media for internal calls. Please stay tuned for the forthcoming release of this exciting new IP Phone.
