Are you interested in the Grandstream UCM6200 or other versions of the UCM? These Grandstream IP PBX appliances offer secure and reliable service at an unprecedented price without any licensing fees, cost-per-feature or recurring fees. During our previous webinar with Grandstream, we received a lot of great questions about the UCM appliances and we want to share with all of you who may have the same questions!  

Grandstream UCM6200 & GXP Phones Webinar Q&A

Question 1 Can an Avaya phone be configured to work with the UCMs?

Answer: All our devices are SIP-based devices so any devices that support the SIP protocol should work with the UCM. Some features might not work because they were designed to work with Grandstream devices only but in terms of the functionality, it should not be a problem.

 

Question 2 What about an Active Directory or some other directory client on the UCMs?

Answer: Yes, you can use the Active Directory on either the UCMs or on the GXP phones.

 

Question 3: How do we set up Affinity desktop client?

Answer: After downloading the application through the “Resources” section of any GXP phone’s product page on Grandstream.com, you can choose Simple, Advanced or Discovery setup mode. Each provide convenient configuration possibilities to any deployment.

For more information about Grandstream Affinity, download the Grandstream Affinity brochure and the User Guide here! Or call our VoIP Specialists at 1-800-398-8647.

 

Question 3: Does Grandstream have training available in South Africa?

Answer: Not that I am aware of. You can reach out to our help desk and select the region when you open a ticket in the system and we will get back to you with a more accurate answer.

 

Question 4: The Grandstream 6510 UCM had a USB port, do other UCM models have that too?

Answer: That is correct! All the UCM models come with a SD card port for external storage and a USB port that you can use.

 

Question 5: Is there a Cloud version of the UCM6200?

Not as of right now, all the UCMs are IP PBX appliances, not in the cloud yet.

Digium’s A-Series is a line of Asterisk-based deskphone systems designed with high-quality components. The A-Series includes 4 IP Phones: the A20, the A22, the A25, and the A30. Each model includes a full-color display, HD Voice, and multi-line functionality. Let’s take a closer look at them with Marc in the video below:

Entry Level A-Series VoIP Phones: The A20 vs The A22

Digium A20 IP Phone is an entry-level value phone with a 2.8-inch full-color display, 2 line registrations, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and 10/100BASE-T network ports. If the phone is going to be standalone, the A20 is all you need for any kinds of voice communication.

  • 2.8 inch backlit color LCD display
  • 2 line appearance keys
  • 1 feature key
  • 4 context-sensitive soft keys
  • 5-way navigation controller

The Digium A22 is another great choice for entry-level professionals. Very similar to the A20, the A22 supports  2 line registrations, 1 feature key, a 2.8-inch full-color display, and PoE. The main difference between the two entry-level phones is that the A22 supports a Gigabit port while the A20 only supports a 10/100 port. If you are connecting your PC to your phone, you will want to consider the A22 Gigabit IP phone!

  • 2.8 inch backlit color LCD display
  • 2 line appearance keys
  • 1 feature key
  • 4 context-sensitive soft keys

 

Mid-Level Professional VoIP Phone: The A25

If you are looking for a mid-level VoIP phone with more support, the A25 Gigabit phone can fit in just right! The A25 also gives you a Gigabit port like the A22 but it comes with a couple more advanced features. The A25 comes with 4 line registrations, two full-color displays, 6 Rapid Dial/Busy Lamp Field (BLF) keys with up to 30 contacts, PoE, and 10/100/1000BASE-T network ports.

  • 2.8 inch backlit color main LCD display
  • 2.4 inch backlit color BLF screen LCD display
  • 4 line appearance keys
  • 6 Rapid Dial keys, up to 30 BLF entries
  • 5 feature key

Executive-Level, Gigabit VoIP Phone: the A30

Now let’s move on to the top level VoIP phone of the A-Series – the A30. Designed for executive-level users, the A30 offers a 4.3-inch full-color display which is a little larger than other predecessors, 6 line registrations, 10 Rapid Dial/Busy Lamp Field (BLF) keys with up to 45 contacts, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and also 10/100/1000BASE-T network ports.

  • 4.3 inch backlit color LCD display
  • 6 line appearance keys

Here at VoIP Supply, we strive to always stay on top of our customers’ needs and on top of the voice over IP market finding solutions and providing excellent service. Following this motto, we have become a leading VoIP hardware retailer in the United States and worldwide working with industry leading manufacturers. We also offer VoIP services in partnership with major service providers. One thing that sets us apart is our successful venture in our Refresh program in which we sell refurbished VoIP equipment to customers who are looking for a quality solution but that have a tight budget.

Refresh Manager Mike Rehac expressed his thoughts on the roots of Refresh by saying,

“Our “Refresh” line was created because we wanted to meet the need for a low-cost alternative to new equipment while differentiating ourselves from the used and crummy product offerings being by our competitors.”

Refresh equipment goes through a 10 step reconditioning process that includes examining the products we take in, upgrading those products to the latest firmware, setting to defaults so that the new user can configure the setting as they please, cleaning the products and repacking the products in new boxes and bubble wrap. The products come looking, working and smelling like new.

The great thing about Refresh is that all the products come with a six-month guarantee that can be extended to an additional six months for a small fee. Customers can have peace of mind knowing that if anything were to go wrong with the product(s) they would be taken care of.

Watch the video below to  learn more about the Refresh process!

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!

VoIP Supply has used inventory of popular IP Phones that are guaranteed to work as new.  Take advantage of the great models in stock before they deplete.
