VigorPhone 350 VoIP Telephone
The VigorPhone 350 is a SIP-compliant VoIP telephone. The VigorPhone is designed to be sturdy, functional, easy to use and provide excellent voice quality on all modern VoIP systems. A quality speakerphone and dedicated headset port provide flexibility. A generous 16 soft keys, in addition to the screen and line buttons allow you to use the phone as best suits your business.
The VigorPhone 350 is compatible with IP PBXs, including DrayTek's own IP PBXs, but also those from other manufacturers using the standard SIP system. When used with a Vigor PBX, the VigorPhone can be auto-provisioned - i.e. will connect to the PBX and automatically download its configuration/account information.
For office deployment, the PoE facility means that you do not need an external power supply; power is provided from a suitable PoE Ethernet switch (for example our own VigorSwitch P2260), saving floor clutter, power and additional wiring. If you do not have a PoE switch, you can use the regular mains power adaptor (supplied) instead. As well as the Ethernet connection to your LAN, a second Ethernet port provides connectivity to your desktop or other equipment; this saves running additional Ethernet sockets to each desk, making the transition to VoIP easy.
The VigorPhone 350's keyboard layout has been thoughtfully designed for efficiency; buttons are clearly labelled (no mysterious icons/symbols) and there are individual buttons to switch between headset and hands free. A dedicated Voicemail button also allow you to access you voicemail box quickly together with a very prominent MWI LED bar (Message Waiting Indicator) which flashes to indicate a waiting voicemail (if supported by your provider/IPPBX) - see right. The LED bar also flashes to indicate an incoming call which is useful in noisy environments or when you want to turn the ringer off and also lights up when you are on a call so that nearby colleages won't disturb you./p>
The dedicated headset socket can accept any compatible brand of wired or wireless headset, such as the Plantronics H-Top range (select the U10P type cable).
PPTP for more secure remote connectivity
SIP, the protocol used for communication between IP PBXs and IP phones provides great flexibility, but as it travels over your regular LANs and the Internet, it's also possible for people to try to access your PBX, particularly if your PBX is open to the Internet to allow remote extensions (one of the major advantages of an IP PBX). The VigorPhone 350, together with the DrayTek IP PBX is able to use PPTP, a tunnelling method, to connect to the PBX and pass the VoIP/SIP traffic within that tunnel. This has three major advantages:
By selecting the PPTP method on the VigorPhone 350, it will register with the DrayTek IP PBX using PPTP, and then pass the SIP and voice data through the tunnel.
