Mitel WLAN StandIdeal for enterprise and SMB customers, this accessory enables a Mitel IP phone to operate as both a wireless client or an access point that supports voice, data and video over a wireless network. Operating as an access point, it provides wireless accessibility for up to six IP phones that have the WLAN stand installed. It supports both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless standards. In access point mode, it supports wireless multimedia (WMM) for wireless voice prioritisation (QoS), and WPA/WPA2 for security on a wireless network. It provides wireless data access for the PC via the 10/100 LAN port in the IP phone and eliminates Ethernet cabling for wireless IP phone clients.

Netcomm Smartvoice GatewayThe V400 and V800 series of gateways lets SMBs add a single device to their existing telephone system to enable VOIP calls. The gateway is easy to integrate and totally transparent for end-users as they use their phone as normal. It looks after the least cost routing through the VOIP provider and not the PSTN provider. Extra lines can be provided with an in-dial and out-dial number available (supported by VoIP provider) without the cost of extra line rentals. Private networks can use peer-to-peer calling using the phone book which can register up to 100 extensions to phone each office/extension for free. The gateways also support call forward, call hold, call transfer and includes an IVR and call hunting for IP calls.

Linksys One SVR3000This services router delivers 16 ports of fast Ethernet LAN switching with full support for IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet on each port. Two 10/100 WAN ports provide access to the Internet either directly or through a separate broadband router or bridge device. Two 10/100/1000 BaseT ports offer cascaded expansion to other switches or application servers. All LAN and expansion ports have automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover detection and polarity detection will automatically correct cabling errors. Each port independently and automatically negotiates for best speed and mode (half- or full-duplex). Head-of-line blocking prevention keeps high-speed clients from bogging down in lower-speed traffi c and fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed on into the network.
