Digium dials up new IP phones for Asterisk, Switchvox


Digium, which earlier this month announced its new Switchvox business phone system was interoperable with LifeSize's videoconferencing platform, today said the new IP phones are available generally.

Digium said the phones were specifically engineered to leverage Asterisk and Switchvox, Digium's unified communications system.

The company said the new phones were include interactive voicemail, visual call parking, one-touch call recording, a searchable contact directory and presence management. The Digium phones also include an app engine with a JavaScript API that allows programmers to create applications that interface directly with core phone features.

It's not just the devices that have new features, the company said, pointing to updates for both Asterisk and Switchvox that are designed to increase functionality and direct integration with the new Digium phones.

The MSRP for the new phones runs between $129 and $279; the Digium phones are currently available in selected geographies.
