Superior Audio Quality

The unique high-fidelity acoustics of the Avaya 9640, including wideband audio support in the speaker, handset, and headset, deliver industry-leading audio that minimizes ambient noise. With the enhanced audio across high and low frequencies, it is easier for users to better understand others with different speech nuances or accents.

For the essential end user, the person constantly on the telephone, the enhanced audio allows calls to be more productive by making team members better able to collaborate. On conference calls, users find it easier to distinguish and understand multiple speakers, aiding in collaboration and communications. Overall, communications are richer.

New design and color display

The 9640 features an improved, higher resolution display supporting 1/4 VGA color with backlighting. A four-way navigation button cluster is another new addition to the 9640, providing a familiar, cell phone-like interface for navigation and feature selections for the essential user.

The new design facilitates better usage of the display and the built-in browser to improve access to information and use of telephone features.

Investment Protection - Modules and Adapters

Based on open standards with a modular platform, the Avaya 9640 allows enterprises to add a wide range of modules and adapters to further enhance employee productivity. This facilitates individual choice between Bluetooth, monaural wideband, or binaural wideband headsets.  Adapters for Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth are now available.

Investment protection and enhanced total cost of ownership are the key benefits. Traditionally, the only way to receive new telephone capabilities was to purchase a completely new phone. Designed with the future in mind, the Avaya 9640 provides a flexible approach for adding future functionality to current telephones.

9640 Designed just for the essential user

The 9640 is designed specifically for essential users, those users who deem the telephone as critical for doing their jobs. The 9640 features a larger color display, with additional LED buttons and wideband audio support throughout. The 9640 supports a 24-button expansion module, which allows the user to access additional call appearances and feature keys. Finally, with one-touch access to mobility features, the 9640 user is reachable seamlessly.

Matching the communication needs of the essential user with the phone on the user's desk gives a business great advantage. This is especially importance given the roles held by essential users (sales, customer-facing associates). The 9640 user can make confident, effective use of the right set of telephone features, which enables them to perform their jobs more proficiently and ultimately helps to satisfy customers and provide competitive advantages.
