Advances in technology in the office environment often move both quickly and slowly
Back in May we reviewed Yealink’s innovative T5 smart media phones. Now, Yealink has introduced the Version 40 firmware upgrade for these phones, adding to an already impressive arsenal of features and functionalities.
Almost 90% of businesses in the United States have fewer than 20 employees, according to the United States Census Bureau. To get VoIP service, companies of this size typically use a hosted VoIP service rather than having an on-premise IP PBX. With Epygi Technologies, however, the on-premise solution becomes cost-effective, even for a micro-business with a single employee. How does Epygi do it? We had a chance to ask Mario Cuello, CEO of Epygi Technologies, about what makes them unique in their ability to deliver robust, feature-rich systems at such accessible prices.
Review of the EdgeMarc 2900a and 2900e Enterprise Session Border Controllers
Edgewater Networks has added to its line of enterprise session border controllers (eSBCs) with its EdgeMarc 2900a and 2900e models. These are designed to enable enterprises and service providers to future-proof their SIP trunking and Unified Communications (UC) deployments. With built-in mechanisms for both QoS and security, they provide intelligent mechanisms allowing for both hosted PBX services as well as SIP trunking applications.
They have several features that differ from other EdgeMarc SBCs.
IP telephony and its related technologies have matured over the past decade. As competition grows among IP telephony vendors, product designers are packing more options, functionality, and bells and whistles into their products. This sometimes results in making IP telephones and their accessories more complicated to operate.
Yealink seems to have cut through the hype of multi-functional devices by designing and offering a simple, intuitive and easy-to-use device that performs specific and specialized functions, and performs them flawlessly. This is definitely the case with Yealink’s new CP920 touch-sensitive HD IP Conference Phone.
Yealink has smartened up its IP conference phone with the CP960. This ergonomic, intuitive and exceptionally sleek conference phone adds the Android operating system and other enhancements to the Yealink CP860.
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.
IP telephony products have been around for over a decade. There are many options to choose from and some may be wondering, what’s next? What new features of an IP telephony endpoint can make it stand out above the rest? Yealink may have answered this question with its new T5 smart media phones.
The upgraded phone line takes the stack of advanced features even higher.
