Though we don’t find any new features with the newly launched VoIP phones yet if you can get your organisation to finance $500 bluetooth headsets then do grab these as they also support VoIP. The Jawbone ICON for Cisco Bluetooth Headset will intelligently bridge mobile phones
and internet protocol (IP) phones in a way that is transparent to users and extends unified communications beyond the walls of the workplace.
“Cisco understands the changing nature of work,” said Steve Slattery, vice president and general manager IP Communications business unit, Cisco. “The Jawbone ICON for Cisco Bluetooth Headset is the type of next-generation device that will allow workers to collaborate regardless of where their work lives. This first wearable and updateable platform is the only one that enables enterprises to get more value out of the device over its lifetime through functional updates as Cisco enhances its UC offering.”
Users using the ICON will be able to connect to Cisco made IP phones and mobile phones on the fly when they move out of one device network and move into another. To summarise, users won’t have to do the hardwork of bending down and switching their headset to different devices if thats the situation you’ve got.
