Grandstream’s Android Phones Win with Price & Functionality
Grandstream continues to innovate with two new Android phone models, and feedback from some of our resellers so far have included “Very cost effective and works with Lync well” and “The HDMI output allows me to conference easily!” The Grandstream GXV3240 includes integrated Bluetooth, Gigabit ports, a built-in web browser, integrated WiFi, a 4.3 inch touch screen, HD audio, HDMI, USB and SD Card slots and PoE. The GXV3275 includes the same features but has a 7” touch screen with a handset – so all operations are delivered on the screen itself. As both phones are Android based, you are able to leverage Android applications and use applications such as Microsoft Lync, Skype, SaleForce, GoToMeeting and more! The GXP3240 retails for $325.00 ex GST, GXP3275 at $476.00 ex GST. Click here to read more.
3CX Cloud Server v12 Released – Supports up to 50 customers on One Server
3CX Cloud Server is a separate edition of 3CX Phone System that allows you to host up to 50 separate 3CX Phone System instances on one Windows Server machine. Each instance is entirely separate from the other. Because it runs on Windows Server 2012 and uses 3CX Phone System, you can leverage your existing windows knowledge without having to learn a new operating system or complex software platform to offer a hosted / virtual PBX. Connect each instance to its own dedicated SIP trunk or Gateway port and keep call billing perfectly separated for each customer. As a reseller, you can maintain close customer contact for PBX services, but outsource telecom call costs and billing to your SIP trunk provider of choice. Visit now to read more.
