This is a video showing us at ProVu drowning the Gigaset R630H just to see if it can actually survive under water whilst on a call. It turns out it can survive underwater which is great!

I wouldn't recommend trying this as I can't guarantee that it won't break so please don't try this at home!

Great news, having recently taken a bulk shipment of N510IP PRO bases and R630H PRO ruggedized handsets we are now able to bring you a great new bundle offer at an even LOWER price.

The N510IP supports 4 SIP calls and PoE plus the R630H is ideal for tough environments with its IP65 rating ensuring it is dust proof, highly water resistant and will easily handle the usual rough treatment a cordless phone can take in the work place.

The new bundle prices are now available to order on ProSys our reseller portal. If you do not have a login for ProSys please call the ProVu sales team on 01484 840048 or email contact@provu.co.uk.
