The newest member of Grandstream’s GXP family of business SIP telephones, the company says the GXP285 helps small business users tap into high quality audio and rich features of Voice-over-IP technology as well as the cost benefits and enhanced productivity it brings.

According to David Li, CEO of Grandstream Networks, “The GXP285 offers small business and service provider customers a next generation single line SIP telephone with HD audio quality, rich telephony features, and very attractive price point. A key benefit of the GXP285 is its integrated PoE capability that allows centralized power supply with backup.”
