VoIP Update – Whangarei June Re-cap

Last week our team was in Whangarei delivering a VoIP update to partners over breakfast – we had a 100% attendance at the event and our partners left the event reignited for VoIP opportunities. Thanks to all those in attendance.


3CX 15.5 – Service Pack 5 BETA

3CX has announced a BETA Service Pack 5 for their version 15.5 software – please note this is a BETA service pack and should not be installed or used for production use but use on a test system. The key message from 3CX is around giving greater control to administrators. Key features covered in Service Pack 5 are amongst others the ability to replace license key which is a big time saver and allows customers to upgrade from a trial to a commercially licensed version by replacing the license key; a new trunk/DID report to allow you to quickly see the number of inbound calls to a trunk and to DIDs associated with it; the ability to generate a report on multiple queues and merge the data to a single report; call recording features have been greatly improved; improved server-side CRM integration; there are many enhancements and you can read the vast list on the 3CX blog here.

WP800 Portable WiFi Phone – Coming Soon from Grandstream

In environments where roaming free while making and receiving calls is a necessity, the WP800 is going to be the go-to choice. With advanced roaming support thanks to its dual-band WiFi technology, users can walk and talk with no restrictions throughout any office, warehouse, store, hotel, medical facility, construction site and more. The WP800 is designed for users who require mobility, durability and a powerful, interruption-free voice solution for dynamic environments. Partnered with Grandstream’s Wireless Access Points that have built-in QoS for maximum voice quality and a talk time of 7.5 hours this is going to be the portable telephony option for customers. More information coming in July 2018.

Grandstream GXV3275 is Being Replaced

This month, Grandstream’s flash-looking IP phone with the 7-inch touch screen is being replaced, so we have halved the price on the remaining stock of the old model. This phone does audio or video calls, has a colour touch screen, PoE, HD audio and video (720p), dual Gigabit ethernet ports, Bluetooth, and WiFi. Because it runs on Android you get full access to the Google Play Store for apps like Skype or YouTube. Includes power adapter. All this for a run-out RRP of just $217 plus GST. The replacement GXV3370 will have an RRP of $559.50. Full details on the phone can be found here. Be sure to get in contact with our sales team before stock runs out! More information will follow about the GXV3370 as it’s released.
