Polycom Trio 8500 Conference Phone Now Available at IP Phone Warehouse
Move over, Polycom (News - Alert) Trio 8800; it is time to make way for the Trio 8500 conference phone. IP Phone Warehouse announced this week that the new model is now available for pre-sale at the online retailer.
The 8500 will have many similar features that made the 8800 so desirable, while remaining simple to use. The audio quality, flexible connection for meeting rooms, classy design, and the top of the line features of the 8800 are all still in place but what has changed dramatically is the size. The new design is petite and more handheld with a five-inch touchscreen. There is also the Polycom HD voice audio that covers 360 degrees, extends up to 14 feet, and follows all the VoIP standards. As for security, it is complete with SRTP media encryption and HTTPS secure provisioning.
The Trio 8500 can be used alongside Microsoft Office 365 as well as Skype (News - Alert) for Business while the Trio 8500 conference phone, Skype for Business edition works smoothly along with Microsoft’s (News - Alert) UC. The 8500 has the capabilities to connect to computers and mobile devices through a USB port or Bluetooth. This is a nice perk for the remote worker or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) employee.
The fact that this device is literally so petite yet produces impeccable audio quality and full coverage is only a testament to how far business models have come. The 8500 comes installed with the NoiseBlock technology as well as Acoustic Clarity (News - Alert), to allow for crystal clear sound, devoid of any echo. This will pair well with the VoxBox speakerphone, which is also up for pre-sale on the website.
