New Telephone Technology

| 1 Comment

The auction has closed (winning bid $10.56) so I don't know how much longer eBay will keep this online but this was an auction for a classic bit of telephone technology.

I present the Sysco IP Phone Model TC-04 by BubbaTel:

From the eBay description:

You are bidding on a genuine authentic Sysco IP Phone Model TC-04 by BubbaTel. This model has the following features and capabilities:
  • VOIP Capable! - Voice is actually transmitted via UTP Cat5e
  • State of The Art Security - Almost Impossible To "Listen Into Encrypted Conversations"
  • Premium Quality Half Duplex Audio - Receiver Is Also The Microphone
  • High Tech VOIP voice processor - I mean come on just look at it!
  • Echo Reduction Unit Comes Pre Installed To Prevent That "Tin Can Sound" That Often Accompanies VoIP Telephones.
  • Optional On Hold System Can Be Utilized By Simply Hanging The Unit On A Nail In The Wall (Nail Not Included).
  • Waiting On Hold Music Is Available By Placing Unit Near Radio or Other Audio Source (Radio Not Included).
  • Beveled Edges To Prevent Harmful Cuts While Speaking Or Listening.
  • Perfect For Short Distance Communication! 2.5 Feet Of Cord Provided
  • Could Possibly Work With Any Key System, PBX, or IP System: Vodavi, Nortel, Cisco, Avaya ect. Although neither me nor Bubba Tel is responsible for any adverse effects or damage that may be incurred to your telephone or intra network if not installed by a Bubba Tel Representative.
  • Caller ID Could Be Possible, If Holes Were Drilled Into Each Side Of the Unit.
  • WiFi / 802.xx / Blue Tooth / UHF / VHF / Ham Radio / 101.9 WJHM / AM / FM / AM PM / EST / 900 Mhz Ready! All you have to do is cut the cord!
  • IR (Infared) Capable With Optional Flashlight (Not Included)

We could use one of these puppies around the farm! Hat tip to BoingBoing
