Grandstream Networks, an IP voice/video telephony and video surveillance solutions manufacturer, has announced that BroadSoft Inc., a global provider of IP-based communications services for the telecommunications industry, has completed interoperability testing of the BroadWorks platform with the Grandstream GXP21xx/14xx series enterprise high-definition IP phones, and the GXV3175/3140 next-generation IP multimedia phones.


With this successful interoperability, telecommunication service providers will have access to different choices of hosted unified communication solutions that use HD voice and video that they can offer the SMB, enterprise and consumer sectors throughout the world.

Grandstream solutions provide for automated XML provisioning with BroadWorks device management software. As a result, devices can be deployed in mass quickly, seamlessly and cost-effectively.

More specifically, these qualities are available in the GXP2100, GXP2110, GXP2120, and GXP1450.

Those enterprises and call centers seeking advanced IP telephony functionality, secure and automated provisioning capability, crystal clear voice communications and a broad SIP interoperability, and integrated Web applications will benefit from this interoperability and the available features in the GXP series of SIP phones. “We are pleased to have completed interoperability testing with the BroadWorks platform and our new HD phone and multimedia phone product lines.
