EAGAN, MN, March 21, 2013 – Capitol, the leading electronics distribution source for PRO AV and communication contractors, residential systems integrators, retailers and premium incentive resellers, today announced that it now offers the complete selection of Panasonic’s new SIP telephones for the residential, home office, and small-to mid-sized business markets.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phones are designed to be more cost-effective than traditional models, and Panasonic’s line of SIP corded and cordless phone systems come packed with features that make them essential for both residential and commercial end-users.
“It’s amazing to me just how much value is packed into the Panasonic SIP lineup,” said Capitol President and CFO Curt Hayes. “As the face of Panasonic to CEDIA dealers, we’re proud to bring this remarkable series to installers and integrators of every size.”
