Cisco IP Phone 7900 Series
If your business requires high-quality voice, access to color displays and Gigabit Ethernet on select models, ruggedized voice-centric handsets for wireless LAN networks, and support for third-party endpoint XML-based applications, the Cisco IP Phone 7900 Series is a portfolio for you to consider.

The 7900 Series supports knowledge workers, administrative staff, managers, and executives with general business
VoIP communication needs. The Cisco IP Phones 7900 Series deliver these capabilities and enhance productivity with support for multiple-call-per-line appearance on select models. With multiple-call-per-line appearance, you can take advantage of more sophisticated call-navigation capabilities with support for multiple call sessions on a per-line basis. As a simple example, on a 2-line endpoint, you could be on an active call and navigate to pick up a second incoming call on the same line, while the first call is automatically placed on hold.

You can then switch back and forth between these two call sessions as required. This capability offers your organization sophisticated and powerful communication options that are not typically available from traditional telephony or hybrid systems.
