Designed specifically for small businesses, it gives you the freedom to place your IP phone most anywhere in the office, without the need for a nearby wired network connection. The bridge supports standards-based 802.11n wireless networking, providing better coverage and superior bandwidth. Advanced (QoS) features help ensure crystal-clear voice communication.
With the Cisco SPA Bridge, you can easily add new extensions or move phones between offices, conference rooms, lobbies, or other environments - without expensive network wiring. The solution lets you extend your phone system using your existing wireless network, while providing the mobility, flexibility, and agility you need to meet changing needs in a dynamic environment.

The Cisco SPA Bridge fits conveniently inside the base of the Cisco SPA 300 or SPA 500 Series IP Phone, minimizing desktop clutter and additional wires.
