For the past 10 years, Grandstream has impacted the IP phone space with the addition of 40 different products, paving the way in modern business communications. Recently, Grandstream introduced a major advancement in the IP phone space with its new GXP2200 Enterprise Multimedia Phone for Android – the most popular open source mobile operating system in the world. This product represents the future of enterprise business telephones as it is Grandstream’s first, and one of the industry’s few open source IP phones running on Android (News - Alert).
The GXP2200 features Android Operating System 2.3, multiple third party applications, a 480x272 capacitive touch screen TFT LCD, dual Gigabit network ports, integrated PoE and Bluetooth. The GXP2200 lets users and developers alike experience smartphone ease of use and capability on their desktop phone. Businesses in any industry, including retail, manufacturing, healthcare and more can create and deploy customized applications to improve business productivity, security and customer service.
“The GXP2200 runs an open version of Android operating system which allows you to create your own apps,” explained Xiaofeng Xu, vice president of Software Engineering, Grandstream, at ITEXPO (News - Alert) Miami earlier this month.
Additionally, the phone delivers high quality HD audio, robust telephony features, integration of Web content with access to the Android applications base. Built with advanced security protection, this enterprise application phone features broad interoperability with most third party SIP-based devices, IPPBX and major IMS platforms.
Using an advanced SDK API toolkit, businesses can develop their own apps to fit their business needs. Grandstream APIs include Call API, Messaging API, Account API, Contact API, and Call Log API. The development process for Android API includes:
· Setup – Download tools for Android development directly from the website including JDK, ADT bundle, Android SDK platform 2.3.3
· Development - Make sure you set the APIs correctly , choose the name activity, click finish and the project is created
· Debugging and Testing – Connect to GXP2200, select it as a device, use DDMS to set break points and steps to generate variables or look at the system processes
· Deployment – Enable 3rd party app installation (3rd party apps can be installed via network download, SD card or USB storage)
“Ultimately, the GXP2000 allows every single phone in your enterprise to have the same settings and work exactly the same throughout the enterprise,” continued Xu. “Anything that can run on Android cell phones can run on this phone.”
