Line appearance

The Cisco 6961G IP phone supports twelve lines and has paper label inserts for line and feature descriptions along with a full-duplex speakerphone. Multi-call per-line appearance is introduced, offering end users the opportunity to handle multiple calls per directory number (DN).

The Cisco 6941G IP phone supports four lines and also offers a full-duplex speakerphone. The Cisco 6941G IP telephone also supports multi-call per-line appearance and, like the 6961 terminal, it allows end users the opportunity to handle multiple calls per directory number.

Built upon the features offered by the Cisco 6941 model, the Cisco 6945 IP phone is a Gigabit Ethernet enhanced business IP terminal. The 6945 IP telephone supports wideband audio handset and headset communications to provide clear voice quality in a business environment. The phone also supports Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Class 1, offering the lowest-power consumption for IP phones to save energy and support your green initiatives.

The Cisco 6921G IP phone supports two lines and offers a full-duplex speakerphone for clear two-way conversations, even on speaker mode. Like the four line model phones in the 6900 series, the 6921G IP telephone also supports multi-call per-line appearance and still has fixed keys for hold, transfer, and conference along with tri-color LED line and feature keys.

The Cisco 6911 IP phone also supports two incoming calls with a single-line endpoint. A full-duplex speakerphone is included in the design, which provides a more productive, flexible, and easier-to-use endpoint experience. Integrated IEEE 10/100 Ethernet switch ports support connection to a co-located PC while reducing cabling infrastructure and administration costs.

Finally the Cisco 6901 IP phone is a single-line endpoint delivering cost-effective access to Cisco Unified Communications. Designed with a trimline style profile, the Cisco 6901 IP phone is an ideal solution for lobbies, hallways, elevators, hotel bathrooms, or other settings that have an occasional need for voice communications services.

Jackson adds “The Cisco 6900 IP phone series offers greater ability to personalize your IP phone. First, there are two color options. Also right-to-left language presentation is now supported on the displays, addressing the language localization needs of global customers”.

Automate Your Phone

How to Automate Your Phone for Every Room in the House with NFC Tags

There are certain things you do on your phone every day, like launch navigation when you get in your car or set your alarm when you go to bed. With a few NFC tags and almost no effort, you can automate these processes and never fiddle with your phone again.

This process uses Near Field Communication (NFC), a feature we’ve talked about once before. You’ve probably even seen it in commercials, where people share playlists and perform other actions just by touching their phones together. Those uses haven’t really caught on, but NFC tags will work anywhere—they’re basically tiny stickers, keychains, and other trinkets that perform tasks when you tap them with your phone.

Not all phones have NFC capabilities, but many of them do, including most newer Android phones from manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, and even Google’s Nexus line. Before you continue, Google your phone to see if it has NFC built-in. We’re going to focus on Android phones in this post, but some Windows phones might also have NFC built-in, so you can use this post as inspiration. Sadly, the iPhone currently does not have NFC, so iPhone users are out of luck.

Asia Stocks

Asia Stocks Decline for Fifth Day on Earnings Concern.

Asian stocks fell a fifth day, with the regional benchmark headed for its longest losing streak since May, amid concern a deepening global economic slowdown will weigh on earnings at companies from BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP) to Advantest Corp. (6857)
BHP Billiton, the world’s biggest mining company, sank 0.6 percent in Sydney after Citigroup Inc. said slowing growth in China will hurt demand for iron ore. Advantest, a maker of memory-chip testers, slumped 3.7 percent in Tokyo after a leading U.S. manufacturer of semiconductor equipment cut its sales forecast. Chinese railway shares rose after Premier Wen Jiabao called for investment in the industry.
“There is less and less reason to get into the equity market,” said Naoki Fujiwara, chief fund manager at Shinkin Asset Management Co., which oversees about $6.3 billion. “Stocks are becoming unattractive, with U.S. earnings that are not so great and with ongoing Europe debt concerns. Uncertainties about the outlook for global demand are weighing on the market.”

The MSCI Asia Pacific Index (MXAP) fell 0.1 percent to 116.45 as of noon in Tokyo after sliding as much as much as 0.5 percent. About four stocks fell for every three that rose in the gauge.
Asia’s equity benchmark has lost about 2.3 percent since July 4 as the U.S. unemployment rate failed to improve and imports to China grew at about half the pace forecast by economists. Stocks in the index are valued at 11.8 times estimated earnings on average, compared with 12.9 times for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index and 10.7 times for the Stoxx Europe 600 Index.
The Nikkei 225 Stock Average dropped 0.4 percent as the yen rose to a five-week high against the euro before a Bank of Japan policy decision tomorrow. Trading volume on Japan’s benchmark index was about 14 percent below the 30-day intraday average.
Kospi Index

South Korea’s Kospi Index declined 0.4 percent. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 Index was little changed after confidence among the country’s consumers rose to a five-month high.
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index declined 0.3 percent, while the Shanghai Composite Index increased 0.1 percent.

Semiconductor-related stocks sank in Asia after U.S.-based Applied Materials Inc., a chipmaking-equipment provider, cut its fiscal 2012 sales and profit forecasts amid weakness in demand from Europe and China.
China needs to maintain “a certain amount” of economic growth, Premier Wen said, according to a State Council statement posted on the central government’s website today that called for private investment in railways, public utilities, energy, telecommunications, healthcare and education.
