Digium Launches Next-Generation IP Phones for Asterisk and Switchvox Phone Systems

New Models Feature Color Displays, Offer Ease of Deployment, Integrated Applications, Unique Customization Options

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., August 1, 2016 — Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced the release of its line of next-generation IP phones, the D65, D62 and D60. Digium phones are the only IP handsets specifically engineered to fully leverage the power of Asterisk, the world’s most widely-adopted open source communications software, and Switchvox, Digium’s award-winning unified communications (UC) system. The new models feature a large, color display with modern design and a sleek footprint that appeals to businesses of all sizes and users who desire state-of-the-art technology.

The newly released Digium phones include the following models:
• D65 - An executive-level, feature-rich HD phone with a 4.3 inch color display, wireless headset support, 6-line keys with 20 scrolling pages of Rapid Dial/Busy Lamp Field (BLF) keys, and dual 10/100/1000 Mbps network ports. This model is ideal for executives and users who need a color display, top-of-the-line features, and require Gigabit networking. 
• D62 - A mid-level HD phone with a 4.3 inch color display, 2-line keys, and dual 10/100/1000 Mbps network ports. This is Digium’s best value for users who need a color display and require Gigabit networking.
• D60 - An entry-level HD phone with a 4.3 inch color display, 2-line keys, and dual 10/100 Mbps network ports. The D60 is Digium’s best value for any user who needs a color display, but does not require Gigabit networking.
“Digium phones are the only phones tightly integrated with Asterisk and Asterisk-based phone systems, including Digium’s Switchvox. No other phones on the market offer their advanced feature set,” said Malcolm Davenport, Digium senior product manager. “In addition to easy plug-and-play deployment, all models include the Digium Phone App Engine, which enables the phones to run user-developed JavaScript applications to enhance productivity. Apps like interactive voicemail, visual call parking, one-touch call recording, searchable contact directory, and presence management, all take advantage of the unique and rich data connection between Digium phones and Asterisk.”

Launching alongside the next-generation Digium IP phones is a new release of Switchvox, version 6.3. New features include multicast audio and call parking enhancements. Multicast audio support enables phones to receive wide-area announcements and pages without consuming additional resources on a Switchvox system. A significant enhancement to call parking allows users to create multiple custom-defined parking lots and assign them to different users and groups.

The new Digium phone models are now available and carry the following suggested retail pricing: D65 - $239 USD, D62 - $189 USD, D60 - $139 USD. The Digium IP phone portfolio also includes the D70, D50, D45 and D40 models, which remain available.
