Yealink IP telephony receiver wins product of the year accolade

An internet protocol (IP) telephony receiver from Chinese telecommunications hardware company, Yealink, has been awarded ‘Product of the Year’ for 2010 by prestigious industry publication, Internet Telephony magazine.

The VP-2009P was praised by the editors of the title as a high quality, innovative product which fully meets the requirements of the modern marketplace. The plaudits mirror comments by Yealink’s own vice president, Stone Lu, who said in accepting the award that the VP-2009P is a “milestone of innovative communication” which ‘proves to be recognised by customers all around the world’.

Yealink has already been long recognised as an established and respected supplier of hardware for standard business VoIP (voice over internet protocol) services. Business VoIP facilitates the sending and receiving of standard phone calls over the internet rather than via traditional public network exchange telephone lines.

Part of Yealink’s success to date has been based on the fact that business VoIP has several advantages over standard telephone line connections including that of allowing companies to more quickly and easily increase the number of extensions they wish to allocate among their staff.

An additional incentive for adopting business VoIP using hardware from organisations such as Yealink has been that calls through business VoIP can be made at a much cheaper rate than would be the case with conventional phone lines; even if the recipients of the calls do not themselves subscribe to VoIP.

The VP-2009P, however, shows that Yealink is also already at the top of its game in meeting market needs for new generation IP telephony equipment.

As well as incorporating the qualities one would expect of an award-wining product – aesthetically pleasing appearance, physical resilience; and a whole host of modern, convenient applications – the VP-2009P also boasts a state of the art HD video screen, thus facilitating high quality face-to-face video communication between users.
