The spike in remote working amidst the COVID-19 pandemic has caused videoconferencing systems and service usage to skyrocket at a dizzying pace. At the heart of these systems is what is known as a multipoint control unit (MCU). Knowing where your MCU resides, how many simultaneous participants it supports within a conference, and what kind of extra features it delivers is key to designing a videoconferencing network that will ensure people enjoy the best quality service possible.

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jun 24, 2020 10:54:00 AM

Product Review

As worldwide travel faces new challenges, businesses have had to depend less on physical presence to get their job done. Grandstream’s video telephony solutions are a great solution for the modern workplace.

The term “IP Video Phones” doesn’t do them justice, however, because they deliver much more than video telephony – they are robust productivity centers. They combine large touch screens and the intelligence of the Android operating system to maximize the user experience. In this article, we review the GXV3380, GXV3370 and GXV3350 models.

VoIP products and services for micro-enterprises

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jul 3, 2019 10:48:00 AM

In this article, we review some cutting-edge devices that are ideal for micro-enterprises.

Grandstream’s GXP1610 and GXP1615: Big feature set, small price tag

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Oct 31, 2018 10:51:00 AM

Product Review

 

Thanks to VoIP technology, it’s the software, not the hardware, that takes a starring role in a business telephony system. And the sophistication of the software can turn even an entry-level endpoint into a full-service telephony device with the robust feature set that in the past was only available on more expensive phones. For micro- and small businesses that want high-end functionality on an entry-level endpoint with a small price tag, Grandstream has you covered with the GXP1610 and GXP1615 1-line IP phones.

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.
