Over the past few years, we’ve been hearing a lot about 5G: the potential it promises, the phenomenal levels of network performance it can achieve, and the multitude of applications and services it will deliver. In this article, we review the basics of 5G and how it is poised to change the mobile communications landscape. We also examine the potential benefits it has to offer to enterprise-scale VoIP communications systems.
Grandstream has introduced its audio-only series of IP PBXs for companies that rely heavily on high-quality, feature-rich voice communication and don’t need other types of collaboration platforms like videoconferencing. Keep reading to see why the UCM6300 audio-only series of IP PBXs is a perfect choice for this type of business.
The Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, known simply as WiMAX, is a technology that is often overlooked as an option for wireless connectivity. In this article we’ll shed some light on this often-misunderstood technology and how it can be used to benefit your business in various applications.
As we have written about in the past, Yealink offers a wide range of collaboration solutions that bring the Microsoft Teams experience to every workspace and user. In this article we review Yealink’s collaboration kit options that feature Teams-enabled video bars.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been showcasing the deployment of wireless internet service providers (WISPs) and how they leverage various technologies to add value, flexibility, and reliability to their infrastructures. We examined how technologies such as LTE, MPLS, and cloud services are being employed to supplement WISP offerings.
But the innovation doesn’t stop there. There are a multitude of other technologies, protocols, and innovations that are being incorporated to bring about a new age of the WISP. We describe these in further detail in this article.
Like all ISPs, Wireless ISPs (WISPs) benefit from the integration of other technologies with the services they provide. In previous articles, we saw how LTE and MPLS can be used in conjunction with WISP infrastructure to deliver more useful and flexible services to subscribers.
In this article, we continue our series devoted to the key themes at WISPAMERICA this year, taking a closer look at how cloud technologies can benefit WISPs and make their offerings more attractive and competitive.
Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) play an integral role in delivering internet connectivity to areas where wired connectivity is not economically viable. Rural, remote, and mountainous regions are the primary areas where WISPs thrive. In many cases, WISPs are the only option for connectivity, making them a vital component of a nation’s telecom infrastructure.
There are many technologies that help support the services provided by WISPs. One that is being leveraged more and more in recent years is Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). This topic received considerable airtime at WISPAMERICA this year.
Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) have traditionally relied on the use of Wi-Fi technologies that leverage unlicensed frequency ranges of 2.4 and 5 GHz, along with all of the legal limitations that come with them. Recently, however, additional connectivity options have been made available and much more affordable to WISPs. Among those options is the use of Long Term Evolution (LTE) solutions. In this article, we examine how WISPs can use LTE for their networks, which was a topic of particular interest at WISPAMERICA this year.
Facility management systems are becoming more sophisticated and more deeply integrated with other systems. Video surveillance, intercom and paging, as well as security and access services, are just some of the systems that can be converged into a single service to deliver more functionality and flexibility to any organization.
In order to more effectively and efficiently manage these interconnected systems, Grandstream offers a series of facility management products and services, which we examine in this article.
Microsoft Teams has become among the most extensively deployed collaboration platforms in the world. As such, Yealink has teamed up with Microsoft to deliver hardware that is not only compatible with the Teams platform, but also Microsoft certified. This guarantees an extensive level of compatibility with all of Microsoft’s innovative features.
In this article, we review Yealink’s MVC series of kits, known as Microsoft Teams Room Systems, that are designed to take full advantage of Teams collaboration features for meeting rooms, ranging from small focus rooms to extra-large conference rooms.
