Siemens new Gigaset phones include models E450, S450 and S455, as well as new integrated VoIP devices, the S450 IP and the SX762 WLAN DSL gateway.

DECT is a long-time European telephony standard, but the DECT 6.0 standard for wireless communications frequency was recently approved in the United States, Siemens said. Siemens has been delivering DECT-based phones in Europe for more than 10 years, the vendor said.Phones features include call forwarding, caller ID, call waiting ID, redial and callback, as well as the ability to set up three-way conference calls.

On the VoIP side, the S450 supports both regular telephone and IP-based service. The SX762 WLAN DSL gateway includes a wireless Internet router, an integrated ADSL2+ modem, a USB 2.0 host port, two analog phone interfaces and four Ethernet ports for networking PCs.

All the products are expected to be demonstrated at next week's NXTcomm show in Chicago.
