The Inter-Tel 7000 supports a broad range of full-featured IP endpoints from our portfolio of flexible, intelligent mobile and easy-to-use multi-device options. Additionally, the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-standards based architecture of the Inter-Tel 7000 allows implementation of third-party SIP telephones and software clients. Supported Inter-Tel endpoints include:
Inter-Tel® Model 8600 series SIP endpoints (8622, 8662 and 8690): Present a rich application experience and employ industry standards for both signaling and displays (SIP and BTXML). Messaging, Inter-Tel Personal Communicator, and the Inter-Tel Communicator’s Personal Assistant application are all accessible via endpoint displays.
The Inter-Tel 7000 platform uses SIP gateways to connect to the public network, as well as to fax machines, modems, and analog endpoints. To provide this functionality, Inter-Tel has partnered and performed integration with market-leading gateway vendors.
Building on the IP communications foundation through a standard SIP-based design, the Inter-Tel 7000 family of products offer superior flexibility to accommodate dynamic business needs. SIP-standards provide a communications pathway—connecting diverse communication tools together so that they can “speak” to each other. SIP enables rich communications through simple, flexible connectivity, which allow infrastructures, applications and endpoints to interact in a standard manner.
