Linksys Ships Wireless-G IP Phones
Linksys has announced the immediate availability of its WIP300 and WIP330 Wireless-G IP Phones. The WIP300 and WIP330 are the first in a line of Wireless IP telephony products from Linksys that will enable users to make low-cost Voice over IP (VoIP) calls through 802.11g wireless networks.

While both phones provide voice communication over broadband networks, users can select the appropriate phone and Voice over IP Service Provider for their specific needs.

An intuitive user interface on the WIP330 allows users to quickly and easily configure the handset to access available Wireless-G networks. With its built-in Internet browser, the WIP330 can attach to wireless networks including public hotspots which require user name or password access.

The browser can also be used to access web-based email, view web sites or even receive Internet-based video, such as that sent by the Linksys WVC54GC Wireless-G Compact Internet Video Camera.

Both phones run Windows CE Kernel and libraries, including Internet Explorer, with Linksys's own modifications.

Features of the WIP330 include:

  • Support for SIP v2 standards
  • Compliance with IEEE 802.11b/g standards
  • 2.2-inch color LCD display
  • Support for Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Enhanced power savings
  • 3-way conferencing, call hold and resume, and caller ID
  • Fast Hotspot Authentication
  • Support for auto-provisioning using HTTP or HTTPS for configuration and upgrades

    SecureEasySetup (SES) functionality on the WIP300 makes establishing a connection with a Linksys Wireless-G router as easy as pressing two buttons, one on the phone and one on the router. A secure WPA-encrypted connection is established that allows the user to make VoIP calls from within that network.

    Features of the WIP300 include:

  • Support for SIP v2 standards
  • Compliance with IEEE 802.11b/g standards
  • 1.8-inch color LCD display
  • Call forwarding, call transfer, call history
  • Backlit keypad
  • RF and battery level indication
  • WiFi survey tool
  • Connection status button
  • USB charger interface
  • WiFi Phone Requirements

    Both the WIP330 and WIP300 require a broadband Internet connection, a wireless router or access point with DHCP server, and activated VoIP service.

    The WIP300 and WIP330 are available immediately through authorized Linksys distributors with estimated street prices of US$219.99 and US$369.99 respectively.
