Nashua, NH – July 7, 2011 — Jabra, a world leader in innovative, high-quality hands-free audio solutions, today announced a new addition to its award-winning portfolio of PRO Series wireless headset solutions – the Jabra PRO 9450. Designed for businesses looking to make a smooth transition to Unified Communications in mind, the new PRO Series model makes handling calls from multiple hard and soft phones easier than ever. The Jabra PRO 9450, which is optimized for Microsoft Lync 2010, will be on display next week at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Los Angeles.

“As business organizations continue to realize the true value of Unified Communications, the Jabra PRO 9450 is an ideal product for making the transition to combine deskphones and UC softphones,” said Pete Fox, President and GM, Jabra North America. “The user-friendly device eliminates the stresses that are associated with making the switch to Unified Communications and offers superior sound quality thanks to state-of-the-art audio technology.”

The Jabra PRO 9450 allows users to answer calls in four different ways: when away from their desks, using the headset; at their desks by pressing a button on the headset base touch pad display; using Jabra Call Manager software; or using computer keyboard shortcuts. A noise-cancelling microphone ensures that the user’s voice is heard clearly, and wideband audio makes incoming calls sound crystal clear. And with a range of up to 450 feet, the Jabra PRO 9450 frees users up to a new productive, un-tethered work style.

“Microsoft is dedicated to supporting the launch of Lync optimized products, providing a wide range of solutions for customers adopting unified communications platforms,” said Kirk Gregersen, senior director, Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Corp. “The Jabra PRO 9450 is another example of Jabra developing higher quality audio solutions that are simpler to install, easier to use and targeted at the needs of our mutual customers.”

TMC, the world's largest communications and technology community, recently named the Jabra PRO 9470 as a 2011 TMC Labs Innovation Award winner presented by its publication, INTERNET TELEPHONY. The Jabra PRO 9450 incorporates many of the Jabra PRO 9470’s award-winning features.
