A new choice in the VoIP business market is being delivered by Vidanetwork Technologies in collaboration with Grandstream Networks. Certification and interoperability between Vidanetwork’s platforms and Grandstream’s phones has been completed. Vidanetwork’s Global Office and VOffice Pro platforms can now interoperate with Grandstream’s GXP21xx/14xx series enterprise HD IP Phones and the GXV31xx next-generation IP Video and Multimedia Phones. A joint announcement in this regard has been made by Vidanetwork and Grandstream.

A comprehensive range of VoIP and video-over-IP applications are provided by Vidanetwork’s platforms. These include hosted and premise IP-PBX, business trunking and residential broadband services fully integrated into a single VoIP application platform. Enterprise-class service is delivered with reliable, redundant and scalable applications from Vidanetwork.

Service providers are looking to offer their customers both high-performance and cost-effective VoIP solutions that are easy to manage and easy to deploy.”

According to King, affordable and quality VoIP solutions are delivered by Grandstream’s products and Vidanetwork’s platforms. Telephony costs across organizations of all sizes are therefore dramatically reduced.

Superior audio quality, LEDline indicators and multiple programmable keys are offered by the entire GXP21xx/14xxline.
