Telecom Equipment: Cisco Systems IP Phone 7942G
The telecom category includes telecommunications-related hardware such as PBXes, telephone systems or telephony equipment. Cisco Systems' IP Phone 7942G was the top-selling SKU in 2009, according to NPD.
The model includes a 5-inch graphical monochrome grayscale display, a two-port Cisco Ethernet switch that allows for a direct connection to a 10/100Base-T Ethernet network through an RJ-45 interface with single LAN connectivity for both the phone and a co-located PC. Eight of the top 10 best-selling SKUs in this category were members of Cisco's 7900 family.
