Conferencing vendor Polycom Monday expanded its lineup of IP phones with a new entry-level handset priced at $180 launched at the VON conference in Santa Clara, Calif.

The new phone should open up opportunities in the low end of the market for solution providers, said Jim Kruger, vice president of voice marketing at Polycom, Pleasanton, Calif.

"We had a pretty big hole in our product portfolio on the low end, and that excluded us from a lot of deals," Kruger said.

The new SoundPoint IP 300 includes support for two lines and includes two Ethernet ports.

It also supports the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet standard and Cisco Systems' proprietary PoE technology.
