HONG KONG, March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- VTech Holdings Ltd (HKSE: 303) today announced that it has completed installation of SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) phones in the luxurious new Octavius Tower™ at the famed Caesars Palace® in Las Vegas. The installation marks a major milestone for VTech, the world's number one cordless phone manufacturer (Note 1), in its expansion into the hospitality industry.
"We are proud to be partnering with Caesars Palace during its expansion of one of Las Vegas' most iconic hotels. Hospitality is one of our strategic areas of focus and we expect it will be one of our growth drivers," said Allan Wong, Chairman and Group CEO of VTech Holdings Ltd. "Our strong R&D capability and economies of scale have always enabled us to introduce innovative, feature-rich products that are competitively priced. We are now leveraging this expertise to benefit our customers in the hospitality industry and their guests."
More than 660 guestrooms in Octavius Tower have been installed with S2420 2-line SIP cordless phones in the bedrooms, and S2320 SIP TrimStyle phones with tethered handsets in the bathrooms. VTech is also installing analog models in other towers of Caesars Palace. The phones were installed on a Nortel CS1000 PBX system, one of the many systems with which VTech SIP phones are compatible.
SIP is fast becoming the most sought after telephony platform for customers wanting the best solution. SIP allows users to receive and make phone calls using VoIP (voice over internet protocol) technology, adding to the convenience and luxury of the guest experience.
"In addition to Caesars Palace, VTech is shipping products to major hotel brands such as Hilton, Hyatt and Mandarin Oriental. Our products are now going to the US, Europe and Asia. With a worldwide sales team in place and channel partners in key countries, VTech is well-positioned to tap the full potential offered by the hospitality industry," Mr. Wong said.
