It seems that more and more VoIP manufacturers are producing DECT 6.0 VoIP phones. Below is a short run down of a couple of the new and best DECT 6.0 phones on the market today.

Panasonic KX-TGP600

This Panasonic DECT system consists of the KX-TGP600G Base station and the KX-TPA60 wireless handset. The KX-TGP600 has the ability to handle up 8 handsets and 8 simultaneous calls. This system has a typical range of up to 400 feet but can be increased with the Panasonic KX-A406 DECT repeater with an average range of 160 feet. The panasonic DECT system can handle up to 6 repeaters for one base station.…

How BYOD Improves Productivity

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I began to hear more and more about the idea of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) for remote workers – and it made total sense. Who wants to carry around two laptops, phones, or even tablets while trying to make the most of their work day?

I feel like some days are hard enough to get done what you need to, and having to add the hassle of carrying around multiple devices to accomplish essentially the same tasks, really leads to a lack of productivity and major frustration for workers who are regularly on-the-go.

How BYOD Improves Productivity

So how can BYOD improve productivity in the work place? I could spout off all the ways that I …

In these Digium interviews at ITEXPO 2015, VoIP Supply’s CFO Paula Griffo and Product Specialist Jeff Quinn explain what we offer to compliment Asterisk and Switchvox solutions.

Brian Ferguson of Digium talks about more of the Unified Communications solution highlights in his post here, Talking UC at ITEXPO: Watch Digium Live in Miami.

Watch the full video above for these other interviewees that explain their Digium and Asterisk integrations:…

Kodak, founded in the late 1800s, was the company that made it easy for anyone to snap a picture with a camera.

Over 100 years later the company had to declare bankruptcy. The Kodak name, synonymous with photography and film, is now also known for being slow to adapt to digital technology.

That’s the unfortunate side of digital disruption and the subject of a new book called iDisrupted by John Straw and Michael Baxter.

Jerin Mathew writes about the book in this IBTimes article, Digital Disruption to Remove Many Large Companies from Top 100 List, where Baxter explains:

“In our book, we try to explain why it is that technology is set to change the world like it has never been changed before. This is exciting,

The VoIP Supply President, Paula Griffo, and I just got back from the MOBOTIX East Coast Partner Conference on Friday and are we excited where this security company is going!

VOIP Supply and MOBOTIX have had a beautiful relationship for years. When the MOBOTIX Partner Program went into effect last year, VoIP Supply was immediately an Advanced Partner. We’ve been trained on the products and we can get directly on the phone with MOBOTIX, which is a huge benefit to you, our customers.

If you’re not familiar with MOBOTIX, they are a full solution surveillance company. Dr. Ralf Hinkle founded the company back in 1999 in Germany by building a DVR directly into an IP camera. This decentralized system was revolutionary, and since then MOBOTIX …

If you’ve been looking at a MOBOTIX solution, chances are you’ve noticed MOBOTIX cameras record in all the expected compression’s, and then in an extra compression: MxPEG. You may be asking yourself ‘What is this MxPEG? How does it compare to H.264?’ Let me help you out with that.

Video recorded in HDTV (1920 x 1080) is compressed in H.264. It was created for broadcasting high definition video, which is why nowadays it’s the most common video compression out there. While it’s ideal for bandwidth conservation, when paused on a frame, there is a fuzziness to the image. A minor inconvenience really. It’s usually acceptable, which is why most surveillance companies allow H.264 as one of their compression options, but MOBOTIX wasn’t satisfied.

As a …

Grandstream announced today the release of their new outdoor, day/night IP camera: the Grandstream GXV3674_HD_VF.

What is it?

A few years ago Grandstream began their surveillance line card with a few indoor cameras with no optical zoom and daytime use only. Now Grandstream has expanded their selection of IP Surveillance products to choose from, which is excellent, especially if you already have a Grandstream VoIP system. The latest of their IP surveillance products is the new Grandstream GXV3674_HD_VF outdoor day/night camera.

The GXV3674_HD_VF has 2-way audio and is SIP compatible, meaning if you have a GXV3175 or a GXV3140, you can tune in to your surveillance footage directly from your deskphone (you can also view from your mobile device; Grandstream is flexible like that). …

You won’t find Polycom’s DECT handsets called KIRK anymore. It might be a little confusing, so here is a blog post to help break it down.

A while ago Polycom let Spectralink loose after acquiring them and their handsets in 2007 which has allowed Spectralink to rebrand their own products again, but otherwise Spectralink kept everything the same.

VoIP Supply already posted about Spectralink 8000 Series, so now take a moment for the KIRK transition to the Spectralink 7000 Series.

Following suit as the Polycom KIRK’s, the Spectralink 7000 Series do not come with a charger or a power supply. You’ll need to purchase both options separately. The correct charger options for each series will be available in the Accessories panel on each handset …
