August 22, 2006 - Salt Lake City,UT - Phonex™, a leading volume provider of voice and data communications over powerline, announced that unit sales during first half of 2006 for the patented Wireless Phone Jack design have increased 134% over the same period last year. The primary driver was sales for use with the installation of satellite set top boxes.
“We enjoyed a dramatic spike in the number of Wireless Phone Jack and EasyJack design products being sold for use in satellite applications,” said John Knab, CEO Phonex. He continued, “Combined with achieving the milestone of 12 million devices sold in May of this year, we continue to establish our position as the highest volume and lowest cost supplier of Wireless Phone Jack products to the market.”
Phonex is currently shipping fourth-generation Phone Jack designs using established, reliable powerline technology. These products operate using powerline technology rather than cordless technology that may cause interference with WiFi, Bluetooth, or cordless phones. They have been tested and approved for use by every major satellite service provider and many other DVR, modem, and fax applications. The base simply plugs into an outlet near existing phone service; the extension can be installed into another outlet in the home to create a new phone extension. There is no configuration required for voice or data use.
Through its extensive portfolio of 52 patents, Phonex is the sole source of Wireless Phone Jack and EasyJack designs for all retail OEM brands in the United States.
The Wireless Phone Jack and EasyJack designs are immediately available from satellite installers, distributors, and most mass merchant retailers nationwide.
