By Patrick Barnard, Senior Web Editor, TMCnet
Voiceserve’s VoipSwitch is a custom modular all-in-one VoIP management platform licensing solution for resellers delivering VoIP airtime minutes bundled with features including virtual numbers, direct dial, Web callback, call forwarding, IP-PBX (News - Alert) and mobile softphone technology. Voiceserve recently won an 2009 NGN Leadership Award from NGN Magazine, a TMC (News - Alert) publication.
Grandstream’s IP PBX, geared for SMBs, delivers advanced features like video conferencing, customizable auto-attendant, ACD, voicemail, fax server, robust dial plan, SBC, CID interrogated pinning and paging. The IP PBX also offers one-button provisioning of SIP Trunks, plus it auto-detects and configures IP phones and other hardware, speeding and simplifying setup. It is one of the few IP PBXs on the market that incorporates video.
Grandstream claims this compact, all-in-one IP PBX appliance is simple to install and set up. Helping to simplify installation is the fact that Grandstream’s products are based on industry standards including SIP and thus are interoperable with a wide range of services and other telephony products.
“Achieving interoperability with Grandstream's IP PBX allows Voiceserve to provide its consumers with very high quality and reliable VoIP business solutions,” said Chris Oglaza, CTO, Voiceserve, in a release. “Grandstream's premier products in conjunction with our Voipswitch Solution will offer the consumer the a robust solution to fit their communications requirements.”
In a recent interview with TMCnet’s Erik Linask (News - Alert), Khris Kendrick, senior director of business development at Grandstream Networks, predicted that there will be increasing demand for IP PBXs and media phones endowed with videoconferencing capabilities among SMBs.
In addition to its versatile voice and video communications solutions, Grandstream has also recently expanded its product set to incorporate video surveillance.
