Avaya offers analog, digital and IP-based full duplex speakerphones for large and small conference rooms. Full duplex technology means simultaneous 2-way transmission. There is no changeover from incoming to outgoing, thereby eliminating the clipping and hollow sounds associated with conventional half-duplex speakerphones. Avaya Speakerphones are ideal for day-to-day group collaboration in ad hoc meeting rooms, breakout rooms, and small to medium conference rooms. Full-time 360-degree coverage assures that everyone in the room can be heard.
The Avaya Speakerphone product line includes analog, Digital (DCP) and IP-based versions for both small to large conference room applications. It includes the SoundStation®, SoundStation EX, and SoundStation Premier EX analog speakerphones, the SoundStation 550 Premier EX digital speakerphone, and the 4690 IP Speakerphone.

SoundStation and SoundStation EX
The SoundStation speakerphones have three microphones providing 360 degrees of coverage for offices and small conference rooms. The amplified speaker provides enough audio for groups of up to 10 people. The analog version plugs directly into any standard analog phone jack. The full-duplex operation eliminates the clipping of speech and the Acoustic Clarity Technology helps to eliminate background noise. SoundStation automatically adapts itself to both the room and line conditions in order to ensure the best full-duplex operation. This is especially critical when you have multi-party international conference calls operating over a bridge. Additionally, this adaptation is an automatic and continuous process to accommodate for changing room conditions.
