Introducing Avaya D100/D160 – Finally a New Wireless Phone Option for IP Office!

After Avaya discontinued their popular Avaya 3810 wireless phones, our customers have always been asking for alternative recommendations.  Well, Avaya has finally answered the popular demands and came out with Avaya D100 SIP DECT wireless phone system!

The entire wireless system can be managed thru IP Office Manager with no additional configuration needed for a plug-and-play installation.  Not just a single-cell wireless system, it can be expanded with repeaters to cover additional area without more wiring.  The Avaya D100 base station is connected to the IP network and Power-over-Ethernet, and if you don’t have PoE switch you can also get PoE injectors like the Avaya SPPOE-1A to power the D100 base station.  It is compatible with IP Office R8.1 Feature Pack 1+ and while it does require IP resources like VCM module and IP client license per phone on top of that, at least we now have a more cost-effective wireless system for users who don’t require the robust features and range of Avaya IP-DECT and WiFi solutions.
