Vitelity and Grandstream made an announcement today that two of their biggest product lines – specifically, Vitelity's SIP trunking services and Grandstream's IP telephony products – recently completed both interoperability testing and certification, making the two product lines better able to work in tandem.
The move looks to not only provide cost benefits for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB), but add benefits in terms of flexibility and extra productivity for those businesses looking to use both Vitelity's VoIP services and Grandstream's desktop IP products, like the GXP IP and GXV IP lines of phones.
Both Vitelity and Grandstream expressed satisfaction in the venture, with each applauding the value, reliability, ease of use and overall market perception of the other, but the two serve a complementary purpose that should make things much easier for SMBs in the market for VoIP service to consider; Vitelity brings in the VoIP capability, and Grandstream supplies the hardware.
Given that Grandstream offers a wide array of different phones with various levels of options, allowing the business to pick up what should prove to be just the right phone for its needs and budget, it only makes sense to have it backed up with equally high-quality software. That's what Vitelity looks to provide in the arrangement, offering a range of services about as wide as the array of phones Grandstream offers, providing wholesale SMS, voice, fax and more by way of its private 50-Gbit dark fiber network, even just a few months ago adding international DID calling to its lineup of services.
Combining the two definitely yields a formidable VoIP strategy, and thanks to the completed interoperability testing and certification, it helps ensure the strategy will not fall apart in the execution due to unforeseen glitches in their collaboration. This not only makes the purchasing of VoIP systems and equipment a simpler process; it also makes the two simpler to oversee, and therefore cost less in the long run.
A combination of efficiency, scalability and sheer simplicity makes the combination of Vitelity and Grandstream a difficult one to overlook when it comes to outfitting an office for VoIP.
