Three years ago the under $100 IP phone market  was dominated by Grandstream, fueled by it’s popularity with those deploying open source PBX systems.

At the time, most manufacturers were staying away from the low end of the market. It was either difficult for them to produce a quality product at that price point or they were totally unaware of the market demand.

Not today.

While Grandstream continues to have the dominate position in the under $100 IP phone market, almost every major manufacturer of IP phones has an offering under $100. From Polycom to Cisco, finding an IP phone for less than $100 is not difficult.

And new solutions are coming out every month.

One such manufacturers that is emerging as a strong player in the under $100 IP phone market is Yealink.
