Polycom Introduces new SoundPoint IP 430

Polycom full-duplex speakerphone and a robust feature set in a two-line phone

In what no doubt is the initial release in a new series of phones, Polycom has introduced the new SoundPoint IP 430. The 430 would be considered a replacement for the SoundPoint IP 300/301.

One of the pieces always missing in the 30X line (and the 50X) was true Power Over Ethernet (802.3af). A special cable had to be purchased with the phone in order to support PoE. This finally has been addressed in the 430.

The IP 430 is an enterprise grade piece of equipment designed for a typical cubicle worker. It has the solid feel that businesses demand and we have come to expect from Polycom. A robust set of features is available on the phone including:
  • Full duplex speakerphone featuring Polycom Acoustic Clarity Technology
  • Two 10/100 Ethernet Ports
  • 2 Lines
  • 3 Way Local Conference Calls
  • Amplified headset RJ-9 jack
  • SIP Protocol
  • Call park
  • Pick-up
  • Hold and transfer
  • Shared call / bridged line appearance
  • Multiple call appearances
  • Presence
  • Instant Messaging
  • Integration with Microsoft Live Communications Server 2005
  • New secure provisioning capabilities
With this refresh of their product line Polycom will solidify their position as one of the top IP phone manufacturers.
