The 3 most common hybrid deployments for VoIP-to-analog solutions

Posted by Guest Blogger on Aug 1, 2018 3:54:00 PM

By Brian Van Meter, Community Marketing Specialist, Grandstream Networks* 

Voice over IP delivers major improvements to traditional communication networks, and as a result legacy analog phone systems are on their way out. Ten years ago, 80% of homes had landlines, but today that number is down to 43%— and businesses are following this trend, as well. However much VoIP is becoming the go-to technology for communications, it is important to acknowledge that certain markets cannot fully convert to a total VoIP solution. Not recognizing this could lead to loss in potential sales against competitors. In these situations, a hybrid VoIP network can help deliver the flexibility and power of an IP solution while catering to the restraints of your customer. Below are some of the most common situations and their solutions.

Move into the future with Wi-Fi voice

Posted by Guest Blogger on Jun 27, 2018 3:49:00 PM

By Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager, Grandstream


A new trend is beginning to develop within the business communications industry. Being driven largely by enterprises looking to streamline internal networks by eliminating wiring, voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) could be the next major advancement within the VoIP industry. It features the same exact backend hosted, cloud, or SIP trunk services as any wired voice-over-IP (VoIP) network, but with the connections being extended to endpoints through an immersive Wi-Fi network rather than an endless maze of Ethernet cabling.

Here at Grandstream, we are leading the Wi-Fi voice trend through a variety of initiatives and solutions designed to allow businesses to build powerful VoWi-Fi networks that increase productivity, streamline installation and management, and offer eco-friendly benefits. This article will introduce the Wi-Fi voice trend, cover the reasons many businesses are adopting Wi-Fi voice networks, combat a major Wi-Fi voice concern, and highlight the Wi-Fi voice solutions we offer at Grandstream.

How to choose a cloud-based phone service for your business

Posted by Guest Blogger on Apr 18, 2018 3:48:00 PM

By Leo D’Alessandro, Product Marketing Manager, Sangoma Technologies

If you are looking for a cloud-based phone service for your business, you may find it confusing to decide between the many options available. The low cost of the internet infrastructure is allowing more companies to offer their own cloud-based phone solutions. Since many of them are already bundling local & long-distance calling, caller ID and voicemail into their monthly service, how do you know which option makes the most sense for your business?

Below are some of the top criteria to keep in mind when choosing your cloud-based service.

Find the conferencing solution that's made for you. Presenting the GVC3200 series.

By Dorothy Murach, Marketing Manager at Grandstream Networks

We all know that no two businesses are exactly alike, so why settle for conventional business communications solutions? Instead of accepting the idea that devices “just work that way,” we should be asking for products that “work OUR way.” With this in mind, Grandstream set out to create a line of videoconferencing systems that are flexible, powerful and affordable — allowing businesses of all kinds to create a videoconferencing solution that works the way they operate, not the other way around.  

The GVC3200 series of videoconferencing (VC) systems offers options that cover the diverse needs of businesses big, small and in-between. The series consists of three models: the GVC3200, GVC3202 and GVC3210. In this article we’ll explore each device in the GVC family and help you understand the flexibility and customization provided by each one — guiding you to choose a device that works the way your business does.

Win the growth game with this scorecard

Posted by Guest Blogger on Nov 1, 2017 3:44:00 PM

Five Essential Sales Metrics

By Mike Schmidtmann, Trans4mers 

Many telephone dealers and ITSPs aren’t growing because they are breaking fundamental rules of sales. They don’t even realize it! How can you break the rules when you don’t know the rules? 

Here’s a metaphor to illustrate this problem and the solution. Imagine playing golf without a scorecard. Now imagine playing without knowing what “par” is for each hole. Wouldn’t that be a bit odd? Disorienting?

Your score in golf is always compared with par. If you shoot a “4” on a hole, you don’t know how good that is until you know what the par is. It could be fair, good, or great depending on whether it’s a par 3, 4, or 5. Of course, if you post a “Snowman," (an 8), that’s bad no matter what the hole is!

Many resellers play a version of this game with sales. How do we know if we are shooting bogies, pars, or birdies? Below, you will find five invaluable metrics that should be on every sales scorecard.
