3Com Corp. today announced a new wireless, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based IP phone that delivers Voice over IP (VoIP) communications on a wireless LAN (802.11b/g) infrastructure.

The 3Com 3108 Wireless Phone enables users to roam a building or campus environment and stay connected with customers, partners and co-workers while utilizing VoIP, wireless e-mail and data applications.

Designed for people that have mobility requirements on the job in markets including education, government, healthcare and retail, end-users can also use the phone to transfer calls to other departments, gain access to a live receptionist and listen to office voice mail.

“In today’s interactive world, many employees are no longer spending hours tied to their desks. To be productive, employees have to be mobile to effectively engage customers, solve problems and collaborate with partners and other employees,” said Brian Allain, vice president and general manager of 3Com’s Data and Voice Business Unit.

“Organizations know the cost savings and business benefits of VoIP and the flexibility a wireless infrastructure deliver.

The phone’s keypad and four-way cursor allow users to manage calls, access their phonebook, view call logs and view e-mails.

Personal settings, such as ring tones, speed dials and connectivity settings, can be configured on the phone or via a Web browser-based management tool.
