I’m starting to wonder if the off switch at the Grandstream new phone model assembly line is broken because today they announced another new VoIP phone with even more on the way. The newest model off the conveyor belt is the Grandstream GXP2130.
What is it?
Of the latest enterprise grade VoIP phones in the GXP series Grandstream GXP2130 is the entry level phone; although, entry doesn’t mean it is a stripped down phone. Quite to the contrary the GXP2130 has many of the same features as the GXP2140 and GXP2160 that were released at the end of last year. These similar features include a TFT Color LCD Display, dual gigabit RJ45 ports, support for PoE and EHS support with Plantronics headsets.
What separates the GXP2130 from the other models are some of the feature details and the specs. As an entry level phone the Grandstream GXP2130 has fewer line appearances (3), a smaller display (2.8″ (320×240)) and less programmable keys (12 in total).
- 3 Line appearances
- 4 programmable context-sensitive soft keys
- 8 programmable BLF extension keys
- Support for G.722 HD Voice
- 2.8″ (320×240) TFT Color LCD Display
- Dual Gigabit RJ45 Ports
- Built-in auto sensing IEEE 802.3 af Power over Ethernet
- Universal Power Supply Included
- RJ9 headset port
- Support for Electronic Hook Switch (EHS) with Plantronics Headsets

Who is it For?
From looking at the specs of the GXP2130 I see a few different users who may find it as a good fit for their telephony needs. The first one that comes to mind is a sales or customer service rep. The multiple line features would give the user the ability to handle more than one call at a time. Another area where there may be a strong use case for this phone is in public spaces such as lobbies or hallways. The programmable keys could easily be programmed to ring departments or individuals.
The MSRP for the Grandstream GXP2130 is $99
