Judging from today’s post-recording VUC call Randy (aka Randulo) seems quite taken by his new Siemens S675IP SIP-DECT system. He’s written about it a couple of places including the VUC Ning site and over on his HUB Pages psuedo-blog.
Between his experience and Alan Lord’s earlier review I’m thinking seriously about acquiring one myself. If it works as well as they say then it would be a good home phone, where we’d like to have several handsets. The ability to remotely provision the contact list is key.
Since it’s G.722 capable it would provide another end-point for testing wideband calling when I finally get a Polycom IP650, IP550 or IP670. Wideband intercom in the house sounds like a nice idea, too.
The trouble is it’s not available in the US. The older C450 is available here, but that looks to be a much less evolved device. Maybe I can source them in the UK and have them shipped to my employer’s head office in Cambridge.
UPDATE: I just ordered the system with three handsets from a vendor in Glasgow, for shipment to Cambridge. It may be a while before it gets to Houston, but we’re definitely giving it a try. I’m such a sucker for new hardware.
