A customer recently asked us if we could recommend to him something other than a Polycom for his conference room. I realized then that we hadn't really looked into conferencing solutions from other manufacturers, and the team immediately sought out to remedy that.
We started by digging into the offerings of recently acquired Swedish telepresence provider Konftel. According to the company, Konftel's conferencing solutions capture 75% to 80% of the market in their home country of Sweden. Now the focus is on increasing their presence in the US and the rest of Europe.
The 300IP is the company's only SIP based solution. This rather odd looking device is packed with features. Highlights include built-in call recording, 5-way calls, preset conference 'groups', and OmniSound 2.0, Konftel's own version of 'HD Voice'.
