Polycom Soundstation IP 7000 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

The following review was conducted in October 2017.

The Polycom Soundstation IP 7000 was for many years the conference phone of choice at OnSIP. We used it every Wednesday for our engineering meeting and every Friday for our all-hands meeting.

In this phone review, we take a look at how the Polycom Soundstation IP 7000 conference phone has held up over the years. Read on to learn about its features, audio range, sound quality, and more.

Jitsi Desktop for Mac (v. 2.10.5550) star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24

The following review was conducted in August 2017, using Jitsi Desktop for Mac version 2.10.5550.

Jitsi has been around since 2003. We reviewed the desktop softphone app in 2011, and recently in 2017 for Linux. While Jitsi's functionality is fairly similar across platforms, we wanted to review Jitsi for Mac again, to see what's changed. As the premier open source softphone solution, Jitsi certainly deserves a fresh look.

Jitsi Desktop for Ubuntu (v.2.1.0.5550-1) star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24

The following review was conducted in July 2017.

Jitsi Desktop for Ubuntu is a mature open source soft phone that has been under development since 2003 (in its original incarnation as SIP Communicator). It's maintained by the Jitsi community, which now also supports several other projects focused on video conferencing.

Renamed to Jitsi Desktop from Jitsi phone, it offers support for AIM, Google Talk, ICQ, IPP, IPTel, IRC and XMPP, so it functions as a unified communications program. Perhaps the most exciting feature is that Jitsi features desktop sharing, which is an interesting use of video telephony.
