Combination of Sonetel Free PBX Service with Grandstream HD and IP Multimedia Endpoints Yields Plug-n-Play Global IP Voice and Video Calling Solution with No Monthly Cost and Minimum Investment 

Brookline, MA (July 21, 2011) – Grandstream Networks, the leading manufacturer of IP voice/video telephony and video surveillance solutions, and Sonetel, the first company worldwide to offer a scalable, free, global PBX service for businesses, today announced that small to medium-size businesses (SMBs) worldwide can easily and reliably use a range of Grandstream HD IP Phones to connect with Sonetel’s Phone System. Extensive interoperability testing, conducted with Sonetel and in cooperation with Grandstream distributor MigraX AB, of Grandstream’s GXP21xx series enterprise high-definition (HD) IP phones and GXV IP Multimedia Phones ensures compatibility and successful completion of quality voice and video calls with Sonetel’s award-winning, free global PBX service.

“Many businesses today rely on the mobile phone as its key communication tool, but many people prefer to use a high quality desktop phone when they are at the office,” said Henrik Thomé, CEO of Sonetel. “We have selected Grandstream as a global partner because of their high quality voice and video at very competitive prices. This is ideal for our customers who generally are small businesses with limited resources,” he added.

Sonetel is the only company providing a free, scalable phone system service to SMBs worldwide. The free cloud-based PBX can be activated by any company in a minute and be connected to any VoIP service of the customer’s choice for free. The service was awarded “Product of the year 2010” by US-based Technology Marketing Corporation’s Internet Telephony Magazine. Optional add-on services include voice response services, phone numbers and worldwide calling to mobile phones and landlines.

The new GXP series of enterprise SIP telephones, specifically, the GXP2100, GXP2110, GXP2120, and GXP1450 feature superior HD voice quality, PoE, XML customization flexibility, and productivity applications for enterprise and call center customers worldwide, who are in need of advanced IP telephony functionality, secure and automated provisioning capability, crystal clear voice communications as well as broad SIP interoperability, and integrated web applications.

For enterprise customers seeking a more advanced, integrated visual communication experience with instant access to real-time web and social multimedia applications, Grandstream’s new GXV3175 IP Multimedia Phone redefines desktop multimedia communications. The sleek, tablet-like GXV3175 has a large 7” touch screen LCD, 1.3 Megapixel camera, integrated WiFi (802.11b/g/n) and PoE and XML customization flexibility for service providers.
