Novus offers free 30-Day Trial of Konftel Conference Phones

New “try & buy” promotion allows resellers to demo Konftel’s high-definition conference models in-house or at client sites FAIRFIELD, Conn. (December 5, 2012) Novus, a boutique telecommunications and IP distributor, has introduced a new Konftel “try & buy” promotion, offering all models of the Swedish manufacturer’s conference phones to its value-added resellers throughout North America. The free 30-day trial is available via the company’s blog, www.IP-Hive.com, from December 5, 2012, through April 30, 2013. Resellers can also extend trials to their end clients, providing a hands-on experience with Konftel’s high-definition IP conference phones.


“Konftel allows VARs to significantly improve margins, while offering an attractive IP conference phone with flexible feature options and outstanding sound quality,” said Chris Meehan, Managing Partner, Novus, LLC. “This promotion will enable VARs to offer their clients real experience with the phones before making purchasing decisions. We know our resellers and their clients will appreciate Konftel’s offerings, which are competitively priced and provide an ideal alternative to competitor’s conference phones.” A wide array of conference phones, all leveraging Konftel’s signature OmniSound HD, are available for trial use, including two of the company’s most popular models: the Konftel 300IP and the Konftel 300W.

The Konftel 300IP is a flexible SIP-based high-definition conference phone, perfect for companies using IP voice services. Packed with intelligent features, it offers meeting recording and storage, pre-programmable buttons for group calls, and a web interface for managing configuration and local directory remotely. It can also accommodate expansion microphones, an external wireless headset and a PA system for larger conferences. The Konftel 300W is a DECT 6.0 wireless conference phone that allows users to hold conference calls on-the-go, free of phone jacks and power outlets.

In addition, the following models are also available through the trial offer: the Konftel 300M, Konftel 300, Konftel 250, Konftel 100, Konftel 60W, Konftel 50 and any other models Konftel may introduce in early 2013.

“We’ve worked closely with Novus over the past three years to grow the Konftel brand in the North American Channel,” said Fredrik Hornkvist, Channel Development Director Audio Conferencing, Konftel. “We hope resellers will take advantage of this easy try & buy promotion. It’s a prime opportunity to actually plug in our user-friendly conference phones at client sites, and personally experience our superior sound quality and hassle-free installation. We’re confident our affordable, feature-rich conference phones can meet every client’s needs.” Resellers can register for the free 30-day trial between December 5, 2012, and April 30, 2013, at http://www.ip-hive.com/konftel-try-buy-promotion-registration/ or by calling Novus directly at (866) 331-1112.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
