A Sneak Peek at Fanvil’s New XS and XU Series IP Phones
Since Fanvil released their XU Series IP phones, our team has been receiving a lot of interests and questions! In our recent webinar with Fanvil, we were able to interact with our partners and get their questions answered and we’d like to share them with all of you who may be interested.
Fanvil’s XS Series vs XU Series
Fanvil’s XS and XU series both are upgraded from the X Series IP phones including both software and hardware. Comparing to the XS Series, the XU Series comes with more SIP lines and advanced support such as PoE, IPv6, Opus, and more. Learn more about the differences here!
During the webinar, Tommy from Fanvil mentioned a ton of cool features that Fanvil’s XU Series IP phones are equipped with. I will quickly go through some of them here:
WiFi and Bluetooth
The XU Series is excellent for network environment with no or poor wiring. Simply plug the Wifi adapter into your XU Series IP phones and enable WiFi, you are ready to communicate wirelessly.
Fanvil’s XU Series supports IP cameras. You can set the DSS keys with the URL of your IP camera to play videos (switch between different LANs). Fanvil IP Phones can call the RTSP URL of a camera to preview the image of the camera on the screen. See how to set this up in our presentation slides.
Fanvil’s IP phones also support SIP hotspot features. You only need to register one account and have that one account represent all the phones you have at multiple locations. When one IP phone receives a call, all client phones within its Hotspot group will ring and the first pick-up will answer the call.
And that’s not all! Download our presentation slides here to peak at more cool features and details!
