If you’re looking for an easy-to-use phone with a number of convenient features, flexibility, and networking ability you can rely on, the Alcatel-Lucent 4028 IP Touch Phone is an excellent choice, improving on the previous entries in the Alcatel-Lucent 8 Series in almost every way.
Most noticeable is its 64 x 128 pixel adjustable black and white display – along with its four-button navigation system and six contextual keys, the 4028 allows for easy, clear menu navigation. It also features an alphanumeric keyboard for use with its dial-by-name function and, with Alcatel-Lucent’s OmniPCX networks, up to 70 programmable keys.
One of its other notable improvements is the Alcatel-Lucent 4028’s data transfer capability; its Gigabit Ethernet is a massive step up and makes using it as a network hub easier than ever, while keeping it easy to configure and simple to manage. Its sound quality hasn’t suffered at all, either – the 4028 features a G722 wideband audio codec, as well as a speakerphone with full-duplex, acoustic-cancelling capability.
While the other phones in the 8 Series are solid, the Alcatel-Lucent 4028 is where the series really starts to stand out in the field. For maximum functionality, try looking at its wall mount or sixty degree stand to help you find an optimal place for your handset, and its 40-key modules, three of which can be loaded at once for an addition of up to 120 extra keys. Alternatively, consider the 4038 and 4068, which have all the features of the 4028 and more. This handset will make a great addition to your new Alcatel Business Phone System.
