Vonage Teams Up To Deliver Cordless VoIP Phone

Vonage is teaming up with Uniden America Corporation to develop a cordless phone to use with its broadband VoIP service.

Based on the Texas Instruments TNETV1060 VoIP gateway chipset, the Uniden UIP1869V telephone system will be compatible with Vonage's consumer broadband voice service. The phone features a base unit, which can support up to ten cordless handsets, that plugs directly into a broadband connection or router without a standalone adapter.

According to Vonage, the alliance matches will provide retailers with a valuable opportunity to market its service in tandem with a recognizable retail brand. Uniden has a strong brand profile in consumer telephones available through mass retailers like Target and Wal-Mart.

"Uniden's products are well-known for their high performance and reliability," Vonage chairman and CEO Jeffrey A. Citron said in a statement. "But just as important is the fact that Uniden's products are known for their market value. We want to offer our customers the convenience of purchasing a high quality broadband phone system configured with the Vonage service. We're excited to work with a company that shares our emphasis on customer convenience and ease-of-use."
