Vonage Holdings Corp. and Uniden America Corp. will team up to develop a broadband cordless-phone system, the two companies said Monday.
Vonage said it will enable the Uniden “UIP1869V” -- which offers a corded base unit and is expandable up to 10 cordless handsets -- to deliver a state-of-the-art voice-over-Internet-protocol solution.
The UIP1869V is based on Texas Instruments Inc.'s “TNETV1060” VoIP-gateway chip set, and it features a telephone base unit that will plug directly into a customer's broadband-connection or router, eliminating the need for a stand-alone adapter and telephone.
“We are excited to announce this partnership with Vonage in order to deliver a cost-effective VoIP solution to consumers and small-business owners," Uniden national sales manager for IP products and business communications Brett Morrison said in a prepared statement. "Vonage is widely recognized as a leader in the broadband space, and Uniden is pleased to partner with the company as part of this consumer VoIP offering."
