Linksys ships its first Wireless-G IP Phones

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, June 15 - 2006 @ 11:02

The WIP300 and WIP330 are the first in a line of Wireless IP telephony products from Linksys that will enable users to make low-cost Voice over IP (VoIP) calls through 802.11g wireless networks.

“Voice over IP has clearly emerged as the future of telephone communication and Linksys is leading the way,” commented Mohammad Hoda, Regional Manager for Linksys Middle East and Africa. “With the launch of our family of WiFi phones, we can take the technology to a whole new level.”

WiFi phones from Linksys enable high-quality VoIP service through a Wireless-G network and high-speed Internet connection. While both phones provide clear and reliable voice communication over broadband networks, users can select the appropriate phone and Voice over IP Service Provider for their specific needs.


An intuitive user interface on the WIP330 allows users to quickly and easily configure the handset to access available Wireless-G networks. With its built-in Internet browser, the WIP330 can attach to wireless networks including public hotspots which require user name or password access. The browser can also be used to access web-based email, view web sites or even receive Internet-based video, such as that sent by the Linksys WVC54GC Wireless-G Compact Internet Video Camera.

Features of the WIP330 include:
• Support for SIP v2 standards
• Compliance with IEEE 802.11b/g standards
• 2.2-inch color LCD display
• Support for Quality of Service (QoS)
• Enhanced power savings
• 50 hours average standby time, 3 hours average talk time
• 3-way conferencing, call hold and resume, and caller ID
• Fast Hotspot Authentication
• Support for auto-provisioning using HTTP or HTTPS for configuration and upgrades


SecureEasySetup (SES) functionality on the WIP300 makes establishing a connection with a Linksys Wireless-G router as easy as pressing two buttons, one on the phone and one on the router. A highly secure WPA-encrypted connection is established that allows the user to make VoIP calls from within that network.

Features of the WIP300 include:
• Support for SIP v2 standards
• Compliance with IEEE 802.11b/g standards
• 1.8-inch color LCD display
• 50 hours average standby time, 3 hours average talk time
• Call forwarding, call transfer, call history
• Backlit keypad
• RF and battery level indication
• WiFi survey tool
• Connection status button
• USB charger interface

WiFi Phone Requirements

Both the WIP330 and WIP300 require a broadband Internet connection, a wireless router or access point with DHCP server, and activated VoIP service.


The WIP300 and WIP330 are available immediately through authorized Linksys distributors. Additional products from the Linksys family of WiFi phones will be launched in the second half of 2006.
