"By deploying DSP Group's XvoiP Vega Firebird in our dual-mode IP/DECT phone solution -- which combines traditional telephony services and a PC-less IP phone with our VoIP capabilities -- we expect to take full advantage of this market trend."

"DSP Group is pleased that D-Link has chosen our exclusive cordless IP telephony offering," said Ofer Elyakim, Senior Vice President and East Asia President of DSP Group.
