D-Link Ready to Meet VoIP Demand; Full Product Lineup at Spring '06 VON Show

Flip-Style WiFi Phones, TelTel PsipTN Services Join D-Link IP Telephony Solutions at San Jose Convention Center March 14-17

SAN JOSE, Calif., San Jose Convention Center, March 15 -- D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumers and business, will have a full inventory of innovative Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) product solutions targeting mass market consumers and small business owners on display at the annual Spring VON Conference and Exhibition March 15-17 at the San Jose Convention Center, booth 1319.

To meet the needs of the emerging growth market, D-Link will be showing and demonstrating its new VoIP technology, including the debut of its new SIP-based Wi-Fi mobile phone. The D-Link Wi-Fi phone is a compact flip-style phone that offers TelTel users the ability to call other TelTel users for free by connecting to the Internet via a Wi-Fi connection. Users also can call non-TelTel users for a nominal fee. Calls to and from the D-Link phone are made over the Public SIP Telephone Network (PsipTN) telephony backbone.

The D-Link xStack IP Telephony for Small Business series of SIP-based IP-PBX conference servers, gateways and IP phones specifically designed for small businesses with less than 25 seats will also be on display. D-Link xStack IP Telephony products allow small business owners to realize the cost benefits and increased productivity of a VoIP telephone system without the heavy investment in capital equipment, training and dedicated personnel.

The D-Link booth will have 14 live demonstrations where visitors are encouraged to interact with the VoIP solutions to experience and quality and features first-hand.
