Konftel Business Conferencing
This entry was posted on October 17, 2018.
Konftel label themselves as manufacturers of Collaboration Endpoint Solutions and specialise in the field of business conferencing.
Conference phones are a crucial business tool, allowing multi participant meetings to take place with attendants in disperse geographical locations.
This allows business meetings to be scheduled at late notice and to take place without the associated costs of travel.
Of course there are many iterations on the 'basic' conference phone and Konftel have explored many of them.
The first we will look at is one of a new concept in conferencing which is the portable speakerphone.
The Konftel Ego has been designed to be take with you and used wherever you find yourself. It can connect to a multitude of devices as it supports Bluetooth ( mobiles and tablets ) as well as USB connection ( laptops and computers ).
Quick pairing is supported via NFC.
Portability is assured due to its lightweight build and 12 hour talktime. Despite its smaller profile it can support a meeting with up to 6 people and is fully compatible with Skype for Business.
For such a portable device it gives great sound quality due to Konftel's Omnisound Audio Technology.
The 55 is an all round conference phone, supporting multi language configuration and with a clear colour LCD screen this unit will allow parties of up to 6 people to hold remote business meetings and hence, can be called a smaller conference phone.
It can be connected ( via additional cables ) to deskphones, tablets and mobile phones; or to a computer via USB C.
Despite its compact mode it will delivers crystal clear OmniSound HD call quality.
The Konftel 55wx takes the functionality of the 55 and adds full wireless support for your conferencing needs. The Konftel 55WX has Bluetooth integral.
The basic model will easily cover a conferencing area for 12 people and, when additional microphones are added will support up to 16. The Crystal clear OmniSound HD gives full duplex during a business meeting whilst focusing on the speaker and eliminating background interference.
The Konftel 220 is a low cost but fully functional analogue conference phone with the power and reach to handle a meeting of up to 12 participants.
Sound is best in class with OmniSound and OmniDirectional microphones which cover a 360° area.
OmniSound® HD offers HD audio transmission for VoIP calls.
In addition features like echo cancellation, background noise suppression which minimises distracting background noise and an equaliser for personal adjustment of the sound’s various characteristics are also included. Move freely around the room, talk, discuss and debate while retaining great sound quality that is entirely free from irritating sound clipping, damping or echoes.
It’s as close as you can get to natural sound.
The Konftel 250 is a great choice for an analogue connection with a large inbuilt telephone directory and all the sound features that one would expect from a business conferencing unit.
In larger meetings it can be expanded through the addition of extension microphones.
A very useful feature that has also been incorporated into the Konftel 250 is the facility to record your meetings.
Simply with one touch the entire conversations can be recorder onto a SD card.
The Konftel 300 is a fully powered desktop conference phone for large meetings of up to 20 people.
It is connectable to expansion microphones and PA systems.
If you hold regular meetings with the same participants one can store up to 20 groups in the memory to quickly connect all parties to a meeting.
The Konftel 300 is able also to switch between connectivity options, being able to connect via RJ11 to analogue lines and also to utilise VoIP via USB connection.
This unit also supports call recording via SD card.
KONFTEL 300 IP SIP
If your company uses SUP IP telephony then the 300IP must be considered.
Powered by POE ( power over Ethernet ) the 300IP will allow full access to large meetings with a web based configuration accessible.
OmniSound creates a welcoming and wide range of pick up and broadcast.
As SIP is a proprietary protocol it will be necessary to set up provisioning with your VoIP provider.
The 300 IP can be upgraded ( via online software updates ) to bring in new features and functions.
KONFTEL 300IPX IP
A SIP conference phone that enables you to join or start conference meeting with just one click when used in conjunction with the Konftel Unite mobile app.
The 300 IPX has SIP features and is verified by major SIP platforms including Broadsoft, Cisco, Unify, Avaya and ShoreTel.
It is also able to connect to a myriad of Unified Communications platforms ( and Skype for Business ) via USB connection. This powerful device ( via IOS or Android App ) is able to initiate meetings from your mobile.
For meetings of up to 20 people the Konftel 300Wx is a fully wireless solution with multiple connectivity options.
It is GAP compatible and can communicate with its ( or another ) base station via DECT. It has Bluetooth integral and also connects easily via USB to most computers. It can be expanded and will support a wireless headset or PA system.
As Konftel say themselves : "Absolute freedom"
The Konftel Mx was ( and is ) the world's first truly mobile conference unit.
It connects via the GSM network ( 3G/ 4G ..5G ) via SIM card and can transfer full HD over mobile.
The 300MX has an on board battery which will allow up to 60 hours of call time, making it truly a mobile option for meetings up to 20 people.
Like other models in the 300 series call recording and OmniSound are enabled.
