Grandstream Networks, Inc.(http://www.grandstream.com), a leading designer and manufacturer of next generation IP Voice and Video products for broadband networks, announced today that it has completed interoperability testing between their Grandstream SIP Voice and Video Phones: GXV3000 IP Video Phone, GXP2000 4-line SIP Enterprise Phone and the GXP2020 6-line XML SIP Enterprise Phone and the 3Com® VCX™ platform creating a powerful and affordable VoIP Solution for the SMB market.
Grandstream SIP-based products enable SIP platform vendors to create a complete and cost-effective IP Solution for all their target markets. Grandstream endpoints are easy to manage, intuitively simple to use and value-priced.

In addition, the GXP and GXV phones support advanced voice-over-IP and video-over-IP applications and offer broad interoperability with most third-party SIP products including Digium Asterisk™ Business Edition. The combination of the 3Com VCX platform and Grandstream SIP phones creates an attractive opportunity for system integrators to deploy high quality and cost-compelling voice-over-IP and video-over-IP solutions to the small-to-medium enterprise market.
"3Com is committed to open standards and all of our voice products are SIP-based. Grandstream shares that commitment and we are pleased that their voice and video phones are interoperable with 3Com's VCX platform," said Bipin Mistry, Vice President of Strategy & Technology and Voice General Manager for 3Com.
