Telecommunications equipment company Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has announced a new range of desk phones that they say are designed for the fast-moving digital age.

The company says that the new phones have been created to help face the growing number of challenges posed by hybrid work environments and remote working.

Available in three different models, all phones are designed with a range of innovations, including 3D voice capture for meetings in large rooms, connections to wireless networks, embedded VPN client for remote working, as well as a choice of colours and accessories.

The models are sold in a tier format, with different models suiting different business needs:

Basic

With a compact format and SIP connectivity, this desk phone is compatible with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise communication servers and provides advanced telephony business features.

Essential

Features a streamlined design, quality audio, and a unique port enabling hybrid digital and IP connectivity.

Enterprise

Provides a modular, stylish design, 360 surround audio quality and is available in four colours through customisation kits. These desk phones feature a large variety of connectivity options and are ideal for office and remote working situations.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise communication business division EVP Nicolas Brunel says that the new phones are an ideal way for companies to stay connected using the latest technology.

“The new Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise desk phones are part of the latest generation of devices that leverage the most advanced technological innovations to offer unprecedented audio quality. The desk phones have been made to connect to the enterprise environment, even when working remotely. 

“Their design and advanced capabilities make them an essential component of any digital workplace in combination with our communication servers and Alcatel-Lucent Enterprises cloud-based Rainbow UCaaS platform.”

The introduction of the new desk phones is also closely linked to a new business strategy launched by the company, which they say will help strengthen partnerships and foster further innovation.

The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprises Digital Age Communications (DAC) strategy centres on three pillars they believe are essential to growth:

The digital workplace

This involves employees being able to work from anywhere with efficient communications, collaboration, and customer service. They will have access to cloud-based solutions at any time, from any device.

Communications as the catalyst for enterprise agility

This involves connecting everything (people, applications, and objects) to enrich traditional business interactions, accelerate decision-making, automate business processes. This will also help proactively detect potential incidents before they occur.

Flexible cloud-model solutions and architecture

From enterprise premises to a full cloud solution (private, public or hybrid), organisations can decide on the best approach to support their transformation in terms of budget, timeframe, and objectives.

With headquarters in France, the company has more than a million customers worldwide and has partnerships with a large variety of companies spanning a wide range of industries and sectors.
