  • Overview
  • Cost-effective, High-performance PoE VoIP Phone
    To build high-performance VoIP communications at a low cost, PLANET has launched the latest member of its IP Phone family, the VIP-256PT enterprise-class 2-line PoE IP phone. It complies with IEEE 802.3af PoE interface for flexible deployment. The VIP-256PT makes it simple for the enterprise featuring voice and data system or expanding voice system to new locations. It helps the company to save money on long distance calls; for example, the remote workers can dial in through a Unified VoIP Communication System just like an extension call but no long distance charge would occur. The VIP-256PT also allows call to be transferred to anyone at any location within the voice system, which enables the enterprise to communicate more effectively and is helpful to streamline business processes.
    Standard Compliance
    Compliant with the Session Initiation Protocol 2.0 (RFC 3261), the VIP-256PT is able to broadly interoperate with equipment provided by VoIP infrastructure providers, thus enabling them to provide their customers with better multi-media exchange services.
    Enhanced, Full-Featured Business IP Phone
    The VIP-256PT is a full-featured enhanced business IP phone that addresses the communication needs of the enterprises. It provides 2 voice lines and dual 10/100Mbps Ethernet. Furthermore, the VIP-256PT delivers user-friendly design containing a 128×32 Graphic LCD with white backlight, 2 line keys and 4 soft keys, and 10 multi-functional keys with dual-color LED. The VIP-256PT supports all kinds of SIP based phone features including Call Waiting, Auto Answer, Music on Hold, Caller ID and Call Waiting ID, 3-way Conferencing, Call Hold, Call Forwarding, Black List, Hotline, DTMF Relay, In-Band, Out-of-Band (RFC 2833) and SIP INFO, among others. Besides for office use, the VIP-256PT is also the ideal solution for VoIP service offered by Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP).
    Secure, High-Quality VoIP Communication
    The VIP-256PT supports SIP v2 for easy integration with general voice over IP system. It can also effortlessly deliver secured toll voice quality by utilizing cutting-edge 802.1p QoS (Quality of Service), 802.1Q VLAN tagging, and IP TOS technology.
    Professional Application
    The VIP-256PT supports Busy Lamp Field (BLF) function that, via the lights on the phone, enables users to easily identify the status of other phones which connected to the same IP PBX, such as busy, idle, ringing, etc. The connected IP PBX must also support BLF feature. The BLF function is helpful for a receptionist on the front desk to route all incoming calls smoothly.
