The new Siemens Gigaset S450 IP: a multi-line phone combining fixed line and Internet telephony
Munich, Sep 15, 2006
The Siemens Gigaset S450 IP cordless phone is as elegant as it is functional, allowing low cost calls via the Internet without having to use a PC. In addition to a LAN connection, the hybrid phone offers an analogue fixed line connection, and is as easy to use as a traditional phone. The Gigaset S450 IP has separate lines allowing two people to use the phone at the same time. Users also benefit from being able to program in up to four different Voice over IP (VoIP) numbers. These features make the Gigaset S540 IP ideal for families and small businesses, which often need more than one line to stay in-touch, and its award-winning design will complement any interior.
The Gigaset S450 IP makes Internet telephony easy. At the touch of button users can switch between making an Internet or a traditional landline phone call and can expect the same quality no matter which option they choose. This makes using the latest technology effortless and users don’t have to forgo their traditional fixed line.
Installation and configuration is simple. Users need not log-on to a PC and the entire process only takes a matter of minutes. Just use the handset to download the relevant service provider settings.
The Gigaset S450 IP is ideal for families or the home office. If you install more than one handset (up to six), as many as four Internet numbers can be allocated. Additionally, two users can talk via the Internet at the same time - something that was previously only possible with an ISDN connection. The large color display (128 x 128 Pixel) shows the subject and sender details of incoming e-mails, making reading and keeping an eye on new messages easy without having to switch on a PC. The handset has advanced messaging functionality so users have the convenience of accessing their buddy lists and instant messages.
The Gigaset S450 IP supports a wide range of practical functions such as call forwarding, redial, and call back. Three-way conference calls are quick and easy to initiate. The telephone book can store up to 150 entries and the integrated speaker phone offers superior voice quality. The phone has five volume levels which can be easily adjusted and a standard headphone connection (2.5 mm phone jack) for the use of a mono-headset.
The silver-colored cordless phone will look fantastic in any room and the compact base station can be mounted on the wall saving valuable space. This year, the Siemens Gigaset S450 IP received awards for its elegant design both from the Red Dot Award and IF Product Design Award.
The Gigaset S450 IP will hit the stores next month (October 2006) in „Platinum“ and „Titanium“ versions, priced at 129.95 Euro.
