Headset connection to IP111 possible

The new innovaphone IP111 IP phone does not usually have a headset jack. There is a little trick, however, that can be done to connect a headset to the IP111.


Just connect the headset with the handset jack. The IP11 can now be switched to headset modus via "Setup – Phone setup – Device settings”. The headset key is now activated and you can pick up and ring off calls via the headset key.


Have fun trying it out, because the IP111 is now available!


All IP - well equipped with innovaphone

Currently, the networks throughout Europe are being switched over from analogue or ISDN connections to standard Internet Protocol (IP). In some countries, the switch is already almost completely finished. Telephony, television, video or mobile communication: soon all communication channels across Europe will only be operated via Internet Protocol - hence the term "All IP". Unifying the transmission technologies brings great opportunities for both business customers as well as for home users.


Well equipped with innovaphone
The slogan ’Pure IP Communications’ already suggests that implementing innovaphone means you are perfectly equipped for the switch to the future standard “All IP”, because:

  • from the outset, since the company was founded in 1997, innovaphone has opted fo the future standard "IP" and can therefore calls itself a "Pioneer of IP telephony".
  • innovaphone looks back on many years of experience in IP telephony.
  • The entire product range has always been "All IP".
  • innovaphone’s “smooth migration” scenario is particularly well suited for a smooth and gradual transition to All IP.
  • the innovaphone PBX is certified for all established network operators.

Conversion the easy way with innovaphone


The innovaphone product philosophy makes the transition from the old to the new technology easy. "Smooth migration", allows a gradual entry into the IP world, in several stages of innovation. The customer determines the speed of transition.



  • The first step is to “loop through” an innovaphone VoIP gateway between the conventional PBX and the existing ISDN line. This loop-through scenario has the advantage that absolutely no intervention in the existing telephone connection is necessary.
    All analogue devices can initially still be used with just one innovaphone VoIP gateway by connecting them to the IP world with an analogue adapter.
  • It is easy to changeover completely at a later date: the traditional telephone system will be replaced completely by the innovaphone PBX, the IP telephony and Unified Communications solution. The existing VoIP gateway can be turned into a pure IP PBX with just one software update. Thus all UC functionalities are optionally available and can be selected individually.


So you can sit back and relax: with innovaphone you are "All IP"! 

Modified keypad for IP222 and IP232

The printing and functions of somehow keys in the IP222 and IP232 phones have changed as follows:

  • Disconnect key replaced by headset key
  • The icon on the microphone key has changed (function remains the same)
  • Key "0" now with space key
  • ESC key is replaced by home key (function remains the same)


Please note: the printing on the keys and the software go together from hardware ID 1210 and firmware V10 SR16. The firmware detects which version is printed on the phone and adjusts automatically. If you use an earlier version of the firmware, it will only go together with phones with the old print version. If you have any questions, please contact your distributor, your innovaphone account manager or our Inside Sales team. We will be happy to help.


innovaphone in practice: Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze - Update 2014

Sumitomo updates its existing innovaphone PBX to cutting edge technology and adds Unified Communications functionalities

The Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze GmbH has made the most of extending its communication infrastructure and relocating its headquarters to update its innovaphone PBX. The update means that Sumitomo now has all of the “UC by innovaphone” solution functionalities, and mobile devices are seamlessly integrated into the corporate infrastructure.


One new feature immediately shouts out: the new innovaphone designer IP222 phones have replaced the previous innovaphone IP240 phones on employees’desks. These were coveted with the „red dot award: product design“ award and combine modern design with ground-breaking technical details. Sumitomo also

decided in favour of the innovaphone UC client „myPBX“, the „UC by innovaphone“ solution, and has, as a result, ordered 600 myPBX licenses in Sindelfingen. Sumitomo is especially pleased with the Video functionality: „The innovaphone myPBX video solution is very smart. The user can start a video conference by clicking on the Video icon, a third person can be added to the video conference, if necessary. It is simple and fast to use, in many cases it cuts travel costs and helps to protect the environment“, Edward Krüger confirms.


Seamless integration of mobile devices was one crucial factor to be included when designing the new communication infrastructure. „It is not actually possible to be any more flexible than this,“ Edward Krüger comments with a smile. „Our mobile device management means we can ensure the seamless flow of business processes. And we win on both sides - employee satisfaction and customer satisfaction.“
