Major online reseller of VoIP technology IP Phone Warehouse has expanded its IP phone lineup this week. In particular, the company has introduced the brand new GXP1630 3-Line Gigabit IP phone from Grandstream Networks, a manufacturer of IP voice and video products ranging from video surveillance to IP phones.
The GXP1630 is an IP phone aimed specifically at small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and as such is purpose built to meet their technological needs, as opposed to the needs of the enterprise. According to IP Phone Warehouse, SMBs require certain features in a phone, most notable affordability and durability. In addition, SMB-focused IP phones should be flexible enough for integration with existing systems, while being able to handle multiple tasks.
As such, the Grandstream GXP1630 is exactly what it should be, as it offers all of these features and more—as one would expect from Grandstream’s most advanced model in the GXP1600 line. The GXP1630 facilitates communication for the SMB user with support for three SIP accounts and four-way conferencing, without being overly complex or user unfriendly. The phone’s network switch port is also Power over Ethernet (PoE) compliant for easier deployment.
It’s been a busy few months for IP Phone Warehouse in respect to new product releases. Just this past September, for example, the reseller introduced the Yealink SIP-T40P VoIP phone to its lineup, a model that boasts clear, high-quality audio at an affordable price. More recently, IP Phone Warehouse began offering Polycom Limited Lifetime Hardware Replacement Service for select Polycom purchases, including models in the SoundStation line, as well as a number of other IP devices.
As for the Grandstream GXP1630, the phone boasts incorporated HD audio technology in both the handset and the speakerphone for rich, clear voice communication in any scenario. The phone is Linux-based and supports SIP, making it interoperable with standards-following IP phone systems.
