ORLANDO, Fla., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise Connect -- At Enterprise Connect Orlando 2013 today, Siemens Enterprise Communications announced new line of modern, energy efficient, ergonomically designed IP desktop phones: the OpenScape Desk Phone IP family. The phones deliver optimal conversation quality to improve team collaboration and feature an intuitive design to enable greater user productivity.

"Clear and effective communication is critical to the success and productivity of teams, and having a good quality phone is a key component of that," said Rick Puskar, Senior Vice President, Global Portfolio Management at Siemens Enterprise Communications. "The new OpenScape Desk Phone IP family delivers superior sound quality aimed directly at enhancing virtual teamwork. Plus their energy efficient design helps customers reduce their energy footprint and delivers real ROI over competitive devices." 

The new family of OpenScape IP desk phones provide better sound quality through HD audio as well as Gigabit Ethernet, customization and application integration for high performance users. Centralized device management and preprogrammed keys out of the box reduce service costs. The elegant, ergonomically designed OpenScape Desk Phone IP Family requires minimal space on the desk top and delivers value-driven, highly secure communication solutions.

The OpenScape IP desk phones were designed for optimal energy efficiency, using up to 34 percent less power than competitive phones, supporting customers' 'green' initiatives and provides average  cost savings of $2.45 - $3.05 per device annually.  

"Our users are very happy with the new OpenScape Desk Phone IP - the sound quality is excellent and its smaller design means more desk space, plus users prefer the more upright profile," said Tracy Spackman, Enterprise Communications Engineer, City of Scottsdale. "With simplified programming and out of the box hold, transfer and headset preconfigured, users are set up much quicker."

The first two devices to be introduced are:

  • OpenScape Desk Phone IP 35G: Designed for the standard user, including knowledge workers and contact center users. The user-centric features including headset connectivity, multi-line options, and a rich business feature set make it ideal for both offices and call centers.
  • OpenScape Desk Phone IP 55G: Designed for the mid-range and power user, these feature-rich, highly secure devices include expandable multi-line capabilities and a customizable interface, making them ideal for both high performance knowledge workers and executive teams.


The OpenScape Desk Phone IP 35G will be available April 30th and the OpenScape Desk Phone IP 55G will be available June 30th.
