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.

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 video conferencing systems that are flexible, powerful and affordable — allowing businesses of all kinds to create a video conferencing solution that works the way they operate, not the other way around.  

The GVC3200 series of video conferencing (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.

Grandstream’s DP760 Long-range DECT repeater

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Mar 7, 2018 3:48:00 PM

Product review

In many workspaces, internal mobility is vital.  This is especially true of businesses that have extensive facilities such as warehouses, factories, hotels, schools, or even university campuses where employees are required to physically move from place to place to get their jobs done. In these kinds of enterprises,  professionals must be reachable no matter where they are on campus.

Grandstream’s DP750 DECT VoIP base station enables this type of mobile connectivity by combining two reliable technologies: DECT and VoIP. This base station delivers wireless coverage of up to 300 meters outdoors and 50 meters indoors for up to five DP720 DECT handsets, allowing five concurrent calls while supporting up to ten SIP accounts.

For organizations that need to cover an even greater surface area, Grandstream has launched the DP760 long-range wideband DECT repeater for extending the coverage area of the DP750 base station.

Grandstream’s 17xx IP phones are both functional and cost-effective

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jun 28, 2017 3:48:00 PM

The family of endpoints includes the GXP1760, GXP1780 and GXP1782 models

 


Telecommunications infrastructure can be one of the biggest costs for a small- to medium-sized company, so it’s critical to find a solution that strikes the right balance between value and cost, while at the same time ensuring scalability so the system can grow along with the business.

IP phones often comprise the bulk of the cost of a business telephone system, so choosing the right endpoints is an important part of the functionality-cost ratio. Developed specifically with growing businesses in mind, Grandstream’s mid-range GXP17xx series IP phones achieve this balance remarkably well.
