How many ports does it have? What is the interface like? All of these things can play a factor when choosing what is right for you.

One of the more popular ATA’s that’s available is the Grandstream HT802. This compact VoIP adapter is packed with features and can deliver exceptional functionality to your VoIP setup.

But don’t take my word for it! Check out the full review from Marc Spehalski in the video above, and let him shed some light on the VoIP adapter that should be on the top of your list.

Yesterday’s Grandstream UCM Series webinar was a success! Our apologies if you were not able to join the webinar due to it being at our max guest capacity. But no worries, if you missed the webinar, or if you simply want to rewatch it, here is the webinar recording and the Q&A session for your convenience!

Grandstream UCM Series Technical Training Q&A

Question 1: can the UCM be connected to an existing PBX like a Panasonic ns 700 or nec sl-100 to used the feature from the UCM

Answer: Yes, you will need to use Grandstream FXO gateways model GXW4108. We have a white paper on our website

 

Question 2: How to connect a cellular line to the UCM? Is there a Grandstream device for that?

Answer: You will need a GSM gateway (non-Grandstream) and add it to your UCM as a VOIP trunk

 

Question 3: Does Grandstream Affinity need to be installed on a PC that is directly connected to the UCM on the same network, if so how does that affect security if someone compromises the PC?

Answer: Yes, Affinity is a Windows-based software that needs to be connected to a PC on the same LAN as the GXP phone. Only models GXP16xx and 21xx supports it. You need to secure your PC as you normally do on normal operations.

 

Question 4: UCM as Open VPN server?

Answer: No, only as a client

 

Question 5: Is there a way to have an extension that is outside the PBX on another Asterisk server via SIP URI?

Answer: SIP URI is not recommended for security reasons. If you are sure to use this feature you need to “Allow Guest Calls”. Look for this setting in Sip Settings.

 

Question 6: where would we go for Grandstream support and documentation?

Answer: You can find more information at Grandstream’s product page and our technical support center.

For more information on Grandstream’s UCM Series please visit the product page or contact Joe Shanahan at 716-531-4316.

Our tech support team at VoIP Supply offers great pre- and post-sales support plus provisioning, consultations, configuration, and installation help. We get a lot of VoIP hardware and software questions and would like to share the solutions with everyone.

In previous Mom’s calling Q&A series, we have discussed: 6 Simple Ways to Fix your VoIP Audio Quality Issues. Today, we have more new real questions and answers from VoIP users just like you.

 

What is my password for the Grandstream UCM?

Q: What is my admin password for Grandstream UCM?

A: The newer devices will have a sticker on the bottom showing the admin password to log in. This is a good security measure because most of all devices factory set to “admin/admin”, which can be hacked easily.

If the “admin/admin” password isn’t working, then there should be a sticker on that device. If you have forgotten the password, it can be e-mailed to you if you have set this up in the UCM’s wizard. If in fact, you did not set this in the wizard, then you will need to factory reset the device, because there is NO way around this to retrieve their password. The CX will need to start from scratch.

As time goes on, so do advancements in VoIP technology.  One of the latest things we’re seeing now is IP phones coming equipped with WiFi capabilities.

This is something that has been around for a little while now but becoming more and more standard on your average VoIP Phone.  We welcome this addition because it is extremely useful and also, kind of cool.

One phone in particular that comes to mind when talking about VoIP Phones and WiFi is the GXP1760W.  Normally, when you think of a WiFi phone, you would think of something wireless, but not this phone.  This is a classic IP deskphone.

There is a possibility, if you have this phone on your desk, that you didn’t even know it was WiFi capable! If that’s the case, your next question is definitely going to be “how do I connect it?”  Well, it’s simple! Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Using the keypad, on the LCD menu, navigate to System > Network > WiFi Settings
  2. Select “Scan” and your GXP1760W will automatically start scanning within its range
  3. A list of WiFi networks will be displayed.  Select the desired network, and if required, enter the correct password to connect

And that’s it! Your Grandstream GXP1760W IP deskphone will now be connected to your WiFi network!  If you need some reassurance that it has successfully connected, look for the WiFi logo to display on your LCD menu.

Do you have the Grandstream GXP1760W on your desk? If not, what do you use? And does it have WiFi? Put your answer in the comments, we want to know!
