Zultys Technologies today announced the BTC phone, a Bluetooth wireless conference phone that is compatible with its range of SIP IP phones as well as mobile phones.

B) According to Zultys's release, "The BTC (Bluetooth Conference Phone) provides unparalleled speech quality and removes clutter from the conference room table."
They claims that the BTC phone is incredibly easy to use, having just three buttons. The phone is paired with any Bluetooth phone such as the Zultys ZIP 4x5 IP phone.

"We selected Zultys products to support a quality experience for our customers when contacting our helpdesk and have been delighted with the quality of the products since installing them," said Mark Herbert, Managing Director, intY. " There has not been a viable solution for adding conference phones to an IP system before Zultys introduced this phone and the attention to voice quality on the Zultys system should make their new conference phone a particular success."
This BTC phone rounds out a range of SIP phones from Zultys which includes Ethernet and Wi-Fi sets. It permits an exclusively SIP installation to add conference phones without running wires to carry analog signals. The phone has four quad-color LEDs that display its status. The phone also is equipped with standard 3.5mm connectors (pink and green) so that it may be connected by wires to a desktop phone or a soft phone running on a PC. This enhances its flexibility for any application-wired, or wireless.
"When people think of conference room phones, they usually think of one supplier," said Patrick Ferriter, VP of Product Marketing at Zultys. "This phone will radically change the perception of what a conference phone should be like. Instead of stagnant features, Zultys has demonstrated clear technological leadership with this product."
