C520 SIP Conference Phone

Whether you run a small business from a home office, or collaborate in a large conference room, the Snom C520 SIP conference phone uses Bluetooth® and DECT 6.0 technology for frustration-free calls and meetings. The system serves as a personal workspace device, while replacing the need for a separate deskset and conference phone. Connect your cell phone, or pair a Bluetooth or DECT headset with the speakerphone for hands-free and/or private calls. The C520 can go beyond the office, and work in any-size conference room. The system—with one fixed built-in mic and two wireless mics can support nine or more active participants in a small conference room. Or, it can easily scale up with the accessory C52-SP DECT expansion speakerphone to handle 27 or more active participants. Now, you can clearly hear, and spread out and speak without shouting.
