We are delighted to announce that we have extended our Horizon VoIP handset range by adding the Polycom VVX 450 and Polycom VVX 250 IP desk phones.

Horizon Hardware Incentive available now

The great news is that the cost of these new handsets is fully covered by Columbus on all qualifying Horizon hardware incentive orders. Where a customer commits to a 36 month minimum contract term for the Horizon hosted phone system in conjunction with a broadband access service, Columbus will provide the above handsets free of charge for all users at the outset of the contract term and any time throughout the whole contract period. This is a new development and this is particularly useful for start ups and small companies with growth in mind. If after month 18, you have 10 new starters for example, Columbus will provide you with 10 new Polycom VVX 450 IP handsets at no charge to you, thereby eliminating any upfront charges for new equipment for new employees over the whole term. You simply pay for the monthly Horizon subscription for each user which includes access to all the great features of the UK’s number one hosted phone system, inclusive UK local, national and mobile calls as well as DDI telephone numbers for any UK region.

“Columbus will provide the Polycom VVX 450 handset free of charge for every Horizon user subscription at the outset of the Horizon 36 month contract term and for any new subscriptions added at any time throughout the contract period.”

Polycom VVX 450

The Polycom VVX 450 business IP desk phone is a high-quality, twelve-line, IP desk phone with colour screen for businesses of all sizes. The VVX 450 is easy to use, reliable and loaded with sophisticated features that are traditionally found only on high-end desktop phones, such as WiFi connectivity via a dongle that can be plugged into either one of its two USB ports. Customers will benefit from an attractive, new, ergonomic hardware design with an intuitive user interface that reduces the time spent learning new features and functions. The VVX 450 will be accompanied by an optional expansion module peripheral and both the VVX150, 250 and 450 share the same power supply unit. Horizon supports one expansion module per VVX 450, there is no expansion module option with the VVX 250.
