Mitel Unveils New IP Phones

Mitel unveiled its new generation of IP phones and accessories in its desktop line. Designed with large graphic displays and wideband audio, Mitel's new 5330 and 5340 IP phones come with 24 -- 48 customizable, soft-labeling keys, respectively. The phones come equipped with wideband audio handsets (7 kHz) making them acoustically superior to many IP phones available today. The new Mitel phones are also designed for power conservation.

Also available, the Mitel HTML Toolkit for the 5330 and 5340 IP Phones provides an easy-to-use way to create graphical phone applications using a standard web-authoring tool such as Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 and Macromedia Dreamweaver 8.

Both phones support Mitel's new GigE and WLAN stands as well as conference units and the Line Interface Module (LIM) that provides E-911 emergency dialing and survivability using the PSTN. They also support Mitel's proprietary MiNet and SIP protocols, as well as teleworker, automatic call distribution (ACD) and Hot Desking. The 5330 and 5340 IP Phones and HTML Toolkit will be available in July 2006.

The new Mitel telephones are enabled through TI's single-chip TNETV1050 solution that combines the key processor, communication and peripheral functions. The TNETV1050 is based upon TI's programmable TMS320C55xTM digital signal processing technology.


  • TI and Mitel announced their relationship in mid-2005, when Mitel unveiled that TI had been selected as its primary supplier for both IP phone sets and VoIP gateway systems.
