LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Sagemcom is one of the world's first manufacturers to propose, on the European market, cordless residential telephones with HD Voice certification from the GSM Association (GSMA), making it a European pioneer in the "HD Voice" CAT-iq DECT segment.
A year ago, at the DECT Forum in Barcelona, Sagemcom had already launched two CAT-iq 2.0 certified phones: the D47 and D68, offering the benefits of cordless telephony with CAT-iq 2.0-standard quality of service.
Their sound quality is due in particular to the components especially selected by Sagemcom (mic, speakers, etc.). Operating on an expanded frequency band of 50 Hz - 7 kHz (compared to the classic telephony waveband of 300 Hz - 3400 Hz), they guarantee HD voice quality for all types of communication: Wide Band, Narrow Band, in both handset and hands-free mode.
Sagemcom has also just announced that it has obtained CAT-iq 2.0 certification in the United States for marketing there too its multi-service, HD-voice DECT IP phones.
"Obtaining this new certification for our DECT phones marketed in Europe underscores our commitment to offer innovative technological VoIP solutions. Our products are already equipped to provide end-to-end HD sound quality in interface mode between all the smart objects in the connected home (residential phones, cellphones, routers, etc.)," states Ahmed Selmani, Deputy CEO of Sagemcom Broadband SAS.
A French high-tech group of international dimensions, Sagemcom operates on the broadband (digital home, set-top boxes, Internet routers, telephony and multimedia terminals), telecoms and energy (smartgrid and energy management) and document management (printing terminals, software and solutions, digital production workflow) markets.
With a revenue of around 1.3 billion euros, Sagemcom employs 4,600 people on five continents; currently a European leader on most of its key markets, Sagemcom aims to become a world leader in communicating terminals with high added value.
Sagemcom has provided support for its clients for the last 25 years by preparing and implementing their energy management projects, and by deploying secure and sustainable metering solutions, from meters to information systems.
