DBL, Auvi in VoIP Products Deal

The new partnership taps into consumers' growing comfort with Internet- and VoIP-enabled telecommunication products.

Scottsdale, AZ–DBL Distributing Inc. has entered into a distribution partnership with Auvi Technologies, a designer and developer of digital audio, video, and wireless entertainment and emerging technologies. Through DBL, Auvi will market VoIP telephones and headsets.

DBL’s recently released 1,120-page Fall/Winter 2006 Catalog marked the first appearance of Auvi products such as the PHIP65 VoIP handset, which connects to a traditional landline and a user’s computer via USB port. The dual functionality PHIP65 gives consumers the freedom to make and receive both standard and/or Internet calls from a single cordless phone. Like other Auvi products, the PHIP65 is Skype-friendly, has an integrated speakerphone, caller ID, three-way calling, call transfer between handsets, and a good-sized LCD. Auvi’s WBT121 Bluetooth VoIP Headset and USB Adapter Combo Kit, the WIP20S Skype Phone Adapter and the PCIP05 USB VoIP Telephone for Skype, are also available through DBL.

“We are seeing retailers and consumers alike become increasingly comfortable with Internet Telephony and VoIP enabled hardware,” said Henry Chiarelli, senior vice president of marketing and merchandising for DBL Distributing. “Auvi’s VoIP Internet telephones, headsets and adapters address a growing segment of the B2B and B2C end-user market that is driving demand for such products.” Chiarelli continued, “Our customer base of independent retailers, custom installers and structured wiring installer/consultants is uniquely positioned to address the growing demand for Internet Telephony services through knowledge based consulting coupled with VoIP-enabled hardware products such as the Auvi PHIP65 cordless phone.”

“We are pleased to strike a distribution partnership with DBL Distributing,” said Santosh Patel, CEO and president of Auvi Technologies. “Auvi’s strength is our ability to deliver innovative products that work with today’s emerging technologies, while DBL’s strength is reaching retailers and professional service consultants that specialize in home automation, networking, telecommunications, and security installations. Simply put, Auvi is able to reach the right market at the right time through DBL’s extensive distribution network that reaches tens of thousands of these highly regarded retailers and custom installers in the United States.”
