Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd has released two new key telephone systems with full scale IP telephony and mobile functions. The new business phones, IPstage MX and IPstage SX, which are best for offices under 100 people, will be offered in Japan, and will sequentially be offered in various overseas markets such as China and Oceania.

Next-gen networks
As telecom carriers are building next generation networks (NGN), various telecommunication services, including Fixed Mobile Convergence and IP-based video delivery services, will be integrated over IP networks. In such an environment, demand for IP telephony products is increasing, not only in large offices but also in midsize offices.

"As the leader in the enterprise-use IP telephony market in Japan, we at Oki have integrated our experience, latest technologies and market knowledge demand in these two models which we are launching today," said Katsumasa Shinozuka, president and CEO of Oki Electric. "Because IPstage MX and IPstage SX maintain the functions and economic efficiency of former models, while including new technologies, we believe the key telephone systems can help enterprise users both to reduce costs and improve productivity."

eSound and eVideo
The new IP and mobile function business phones are equipped with Oki's voice and video technologieseSound and eVideoto provide advanced and high-quality service. IPstage MX can be used for offices with under 100 extensions and IPstage SX for offices with under 30 extensions.

In addition to the function for IP multifunctional telephones, the two models also work as mobile terminals in and out of the office, Oki said, as they include wireless LAN dual network handsets, which until now have been included only in the company's large-scale IP telephony systems. It is also the first business-use phone in Japan to be equipped with SIP compliant softphone, Com@WILL Softphone, which enables users to use leading-edge functions including application collaboration and video conferencing (up to 4 participants), explained the company.

Oki is also adding the Multi Key Telephone R to its product lineup. The device is equipped with My eSound that enables high-quality voice conversation in IP phones with other phones.

The IPstage MX, IPstage SX and Multi Key Telephone R will be exhibited Nov. 9-10 at the Oki Info-telecom Solutions Fair 2006 in Tokyo and Dec. 4-8 at the ITU Telecom World 2006 in Hong Kong.
