IP phones are in demand these days as they help companies to reduce expenses as compared to traditional phones. They also provide greater mobility and users do not need to change their numbers even if they change the location of their phones.

Recently, Grandstream Networks partnered with DSP Group. According to this new partnership, Internet Telephony's "Best Product of the Year 2012," the Grandstream GXP2200 Android Enterprise IP Phone, is now supported by DSP Group's XpandR III Media Phone SoC.

Offering Linux OS with a Google Androidframework, the XpandR III platform is an integrated multi-core SoC for voice and video endpoints. XpandR III also offers various hardware accelerators, and also a security processor for safe boot, safe storage and DRM.

GXP2200 from Grandstream Networks offers features such as Android Operating System 2.3 and its huge number of third party applications. This includes dual Gigabit network ports, a 480x272 capacitive touch screen TFT LCD, and combined PoE and Bluetooth. The GXP2200 provides enhanced HD audio quality, advanced telephony options, combination of rich Web content with access to the quickly growing Android applications base, and automated provisioning.

“Our flagship GXP2200 has been markedly enhanced by the close cooperation between DSP Group and Grandstream," said David Li, CEO of Grandstream. "The GXP2200 is loaded with tremendous value for web-integrated business communications, together with unprecedented power for custom business applications development and personalization. We are very pleased to have chosen the right partner to affirm our dedication to delivering the most complete and affordable multimedia phone solution for the market," he concluded.

Recently, the company partnered with Friendly Technologies, allowing service providers to manage Grandstream’s VoIP phones using Friendly Technologies’ TR-069 device and customer experience management solutions. Installed together, the two product lines offer an answer to broadband service providers, who look to decrease the time-to-market for introducing next-generation services.
