A look at what's new in VoIP & Telephony

  • The new, improved Telephonyware!

    We have spent quite some time on the development and transition to new back-end software for the Telephonyware website. As of today, our new website is now live!

    We have worked hard to improve the user experience on our site. New improvements include easier navigation with expanded "Shop By" categories, a more accurate search, product wishlists and fully responsive mobile and tablet support. We have expanded product detail through product comparisons, customer reviews and now feature a wider range of products. We have also added a new payment option, Bitcoin!

    Telephonyware now features products by Viking Electronics and Phybridge. Please have a look through their awesome product lines. Some other brand names have changed and new partnerships added through industry acquisitions. Our long-time partner Talkswitch was purchased by Fortinet, Aastra was purchased by Mitel and Unidata purchased by Incom.

    In addition to the above changes, we have also updated our company policies to be easier to understand and more customer friendly. Our policy pages can be found in the footer of our website.

    As always, thank you for your continued patronage. If you have any feedback about the new site, we'd love to hear it!

  • Telephonyware celebrates 12 years in business!


    In December of 2003, Telephonyware formed from a chance meeting of 3 people from telecom and security backgrounds who had a deep interest in building phone systems from open source software. To this day we are still at it.

    It's hard to believe it's been twelve years. It's about time we celebrate being in business for greater than a decade. We would like to express a heartfelt "Thank You" to all of our customers who've help us make it to this mark.

  • Grandstream Announces GXP1450 - New Low Cost Enterprise IP Phone

    Grandstream has today announced the availability of the Grandstream GXP1450, a new low cost model in their range of enterprise IP phones.

    The 2-line GXP1450 features HD voice for crystal clear communications, 180x60 backlit graphical LCD display with 4-level grayscale, 3 XML-programmable soft keys, dual 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports with 802.3af Power over Ethernet support, full-duplex speakerphone, 3-way conferencing and support for basic Web applications.

    "We are very pleased to announce the new GXP1450 which rounds up our release of new enterprise HD IP phone portfolio in 2010," said David Li, CEO of Grandstream. "From the 2-line entry-level phone to 6-line executive phones, Grandstream offers the most far-reaching array of desktop HD IP telephone options for both large enterprises and small businesses that lead to enhanced productivity and unrivaled ROI."

    The release of the GXP1450 comes hot on the heels of the GXP2100, GXP2110 and GXP2120, giving Grandstream a formidable line up of enterprise-grade IP phones. The GXP1450's list price is $99.00, but you can expect street price to be considerably lower. We expect to have stock of the new GXP1450 approximately December 15, 2010 and pre-orders are now being accepted.
