Panasonic (www.panasonic.com) has rolled out a new line of corded SIP phones, adding to its line-up of cordless SIP models in the U.S. Like the cordless phones, the new UT series are targeted at small and medium-sized businesses.
The new UT series family have been certified on BroadSoft’s Broadworks and Digium’s Asterisk. Features for the family include G.722 for all models, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a two year limited warranty on all models, and an electronic hook switch for Plantronics headsets.
At the top of the line, the KX-UT136 and KX-UT133 include 24 programmable feature/function keys. The UT136-B has a six line backlit graphical LCD plus 2 Ethernet ports, while the UT133-B has a three-line backlit LCD and 2 Ethernet ports.
The KX-UT123 and KX-UT113 “standard” models both have a three-line backlit graphical LCD; the UT-123 has 2 Ethernet ports while the UT113 has a single Ethernet port.
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price wasn’t listed in Panasonic’s press release, but the KX-UT123 and UT113 are described as having a “competitive price.”
