ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) March 5, 2007
VoiceCon Conference -- Grandstream Networks Inc. (http://www.grandstream.com), a leading designer and manufacturer of next-generation IP voice and video products for broadband networks, today announced that its GXP2000 and BT200 SIP phones are compliant with key IP telephony and SIP solutions from Avaya, a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.
Both the GXP2000 and the BT200 are high-performance and affordable SIP telephones that help businesses leverage the increasing benefits of voice over the Internet protocol (VoIP) telephony systems.
Grandstream SIP phones offer high quality audio, a broad range of voice codec, security protection for privacy, and rich telephony features including full duplex hands-free speakerphone, multi-party conferencing, integrated power over the Ethernet (GXP2000) and dual 10/100Mbps network ports. Grandstream SIP phones are now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Communication Manager 3.1 IP telephony software and Avaya SIP Enablement Services 3.1, a standards-based communications architecture that bridges the public switched telephone network and Internet worlds.
"The combination of Avaya's advanced IP telephony platforms and Grandstream GXP2000 and BT200 IP phones give businesses a powerful yet cost-effective choice in the VoIP solution market," commented David Li, CEO of Grandstream Networks. "We believe our SIP phones offer the best price-performance benchmark in the industry. An Avaya - Grandstream combo solution offers a very compelling value to small to medium enterprises."
