VTech shows integrated VoIP Phone at 2005 CES
The company is showcasing its new ip8100 5.8Ghz VoIP integrated phone and the new 4106 VoIP Terminal Adapter at the Consumer Electronics Show 2005 (CES).

"VTech has introduced revolutionary products for more than 25 years, so we are excited to partner with them to drive the much anticipated era of broadband telephony," said Jeffrey A. Citron, chairman and CEO of Vonage Holdings. "Together, we're making it more convenient and economical to connect with people all over the world."

Market research from IDC and TIA forecasts nearly half of PC households in the US will adopt broadband by 2007, with 17 million consumers using VoIP services in 2008. As a leading telecommunications company and pioneer in cordless telephony since 1991, VTech is well positioned to drive this transformation.

The VTech's ip8100 cordless broadband phone contains a terminal adapter built into the 5.8GHz model. It includes two handsets and one base station, and is expandable up to four handsets, which allows you to distribute the service through the home without additional wiring. The VTech ip8100 plug and play solution does not require a separate router and it works with either a broadband cable or DSL modem. VTech's ip8100 boasts 5.8 DSS technology, offering enhanced clarity and security. Other features include hands-free handset speakerphone, 50 name/number phonebook and 10 ringer melodies.

The VTech 4106 VoIP Terminal Adapter enables users to convert their current corded or cordless telephones into a VoIP telephone system so they can take advantage of the new calling features and low rates that VoIP service providers offer. The VTech 4106 connects to a cable or DSL modem, as well as a corded telephone handset or a cordless telephone base station. Unlike many other TA's in the market, the 4106 has both LAN and WAN ports which allow users to share their internet connection with a PC without the need to install a router. The 4106 also has a small form factor, enabling traveling executives and other consumers to take it with them on the road and save money on all calls. Other features include parental controls and firewall features. Like the ip8100, the VTech 4106 requires subscription to Vonage services.
