Cisco 8832 IP Conference Phone Review
Read about the Cisco 8832 IP Conference Phone
The Cisco 8832 is the California-based multi-national’s latest IP conference phone solution built to improve collaboration and maximise productivity in medium-to-large-sized conference rooms around the globe.
As one of the world’s leading telco developers with an annual revenue of around $49.24billion (2016), there’s much to be expected from Cisco – but how much does the 8832 live up to these expectations?
In order to find out, we have decided to write an in-depth review on what the conference phone has to offer, what benefits it can bring to businesses and what businesses can benefit most from investing in it.
How does it look?
With its sleek and contemporary design and 3.9 inch backlit 480×128 colour display, the 8832 would make an ideal centrepiece for any meeting room table while its portability makes shifting it from room to room a breeze.
What can it do?
Featuring high-quality, full-duplex, wideband (G.722) VoIP communications and a 360-degree coverage of medium to large-sized conference rooms at distances of up to 800 square feet, the 8832 ensures all participants (up to 26 attendees) involved in the meeting are heard with absolute clarity.
Daisy chaining capabilities and the option to add both Wired and DECT expansion microphones means the 8832 will continue to provide conferencing support as a business continues through periods of growth.
Keeping information secure is also a breeze thanks to the highly reliable SHA-256 encryption that’s built into every 8832 device, while its ability to mirror the Same Phone OS as other models in the 8800 Series simplifies IP phone administration and reduces the need for further staff training.
What do we like most?
Knowing that every person attending the conferencing session is heard and all information shared is transmitted evenly to the receiver(s) is a huge relief for businesses and the 8832’s impressive audio and recording capabilities offer exactly that.
Who is it for?
As we previously mentioned, the 8832 is built to provide conferencing support for large to medium-sized meeting rooms, and with the microphone extension options able to extend that reach even further, we feel this tool is best suited to the larger end of the market rather than start-ups or smaller SMEs.
