Grandstream GVC3200 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

Introduction

The Grandstream GVC3200 is a video conferencing system with support for popular video conferencing protocols and platforms right out of the box. The GVC3200 is a standalone device, but it must be coupled with a speakerphone for full video conferencing functionality. Any USB or bluetooth speakerphone can be used with the GVC3200.

The GVC3200 comes with Grandstream's GAC2500, an Android-based conference phone, so you won't have to go searching for additional parts as soon as you take the device out of the box. But it's up to you if you want to use a different speakerphone or not. This review will focus entirely on the GVC3200, but if you're interested in the GAC2500, check out our review here.

Media5-Fone star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24 star_grey_24

One SIP client that we have kept our eye on for a while now is Media5-Fone from Media5 Corporation, a provider of “Secure, Survivable MMoIP Branch Office Solutions for Service Providers”. The company has released a series of updates to the Media5-Fone over the past couple of months, turning it from a basic calling application to a full-featured soft phone. Apple recently approved version 2.4.1.9 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and here are a few of our initial thoughts. All tests were done on an iPhone 3GS.

Groundwire (v1.5) star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24

The increasing number of SIP developers working on products in the App Store and the Android marketplace reflects the growing interest in mobile voice over IP solutions. More developers means more competition. More competition will hopefully mean more innovation and better products for the end user. In the end, we all win.

Bria iPhone (v1.0.0) star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24 star_grey_24

Counterpath is the leading provider of desktop VoIP software solutions, known for their VoIP products like the X-lite, Eyebeam, and the newer Bria. We are particularly fans of Counterpath’s Eyebeam; at less than 50 dollars a pop, it’s an inexpensive enterprise-class softphone that works great on our laptops and desktops (headset recommended for the best experience).

Acrobits Softphone star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24 star_grey_24

The idea of mobile VoIP for business is great. You download a SIP client on your mobile phone, configure it with your account settings from your VoIP provider, and BAM! – you’re hooked into your office phone system, making calls using your company caller ID, reaching coworkers with extension to extension dialing, and perhaps more importantly, not using your own minutes.
