This week Grandstream announced its line of entry-level VoIP Phones, and the three new additions to its portfolio provide those not familiar with IP Phones an opportunity to dip their toes in the VoIP pool at an affordable cost with user friendly tools.
The series is intended to benefit small and medium sized businesses with simple phones that offer plug-and-play installation and are interoperable with Broadsoft, Asterisk (News - Alert), Elastix, and Metaswitch software.
Specifically, the three new releases are the GXP1610, GXP1620 and GXP1625. And on a more granular level the GXP1610 is a one-line phone that allows for two-call appearances, has a LCD display, dual-color line keys, Plantronics (News - Alert) headsets, an echo-cancelling speakerphone and three-way conferencing. The GXP1620 offers a slight step up with support for an additional line and HD audio. The third phone, the GXP1625 offers all of the above plus integrated Power over the Ethernet (PoE).
"The GXP16xx series of IP Phones strive to dramatically increase the value proposition of IP phones for SMB by offering much improved audio quality and robust features at substantially lower price than what’s available in the market today," commented David Li (News - Alert), CEO of Grandstream.
Since 2002, Grandstream has sought to provide SMBs with tools to augment productivity, security and communication at an affordable price. This underserved market is receiving increasing attention, as many startups and small businesses are choosing VoIP solutions to save on cost and scalability.
The IP phones are available for purchase from VoIP Supply now, and for those hesitant about this burgeoning technology this “starter” offering is a perfect way to explore VoIP hardware. Entrepreneurs and SMB owners must constantly keep the bottom line in focus as every penny counts, and with phones being integral to gaining an retaining business I’d say VoIP wouldn’t be a bad place to start.
