What we like about the Grandstream UMC series IP-PBXs.

Grandstream's UCM6202 & 6204 are recommended.First of all the UCM appliances get the job done and are easy on installation and configuration. They are very affordable and can be setup with any one of several manufacturers of SIP based IP phones, however, they are really easy with Grandstream phones and all of the features are matched to work correctly. If you already have several SIP based phones, then you can use them saving that extra expense for new phones, however some features may be non-functional. For the best experience use the same manufacturer's phones. This holds for other Asterisk PBX manufacturers as well. So, as a package, Grandstream UCM appliance with Grandstream endpoints, is a top rated choice.

Grandstream keeps putting out guides, manuals and how-to articles, which help the administrator or installer of these systems. They have a support forum, a Video channel for tutorials and offer technical help over the phone.

Grandstream has been committed to the products that they build and it is likely they will keep these products (with updated models, of which the UCM62xx replaces the highly rated UCM61xx) for the foreseeable future. This is an important aspect when making a purchase, because too many PBX manufacturers have either disappeared or have been phased out of business. And several good products have just been discontinued; (Think of Mitel taking over Aastra and then discontinuing the Astralink PRO 160 IP-PBX.).

Add Grandstream IP-Phones for a feature rich, easy to configure, low cost ip-pbx solution.

Grandstream makes several models of IP phones that connect right up the the UCM62xx Asterisk IP-PBX appliance.  For a complete system buy the UCM appliance and the number of phones that you will need.  The GXP1700 series of SIP phones were the 2017 Product of the Year winner at the Internet Telephony Expo. Included in the GXP1700 series of mid-range IP phones are the GXP1760, the GXP1780 and the GXP1782. The GXP1760 offers support for up to six lines and three SIP accounts, as well as 24 programmable keys. Both the GXP1780 and GXP1782 support up to eight lines and four SIP accounts and offer 32 programmable keys. The difference between the the 1780 and 1782 is that the 1782 has dual Gigabit ports, while the 1780 instead has dual 10/100Mbps ports.

When considering which appliance would be best for your company, take into account how many traditional telephone lines will be connected.  In many cases a fax line may be dedicated to the fax and not even go through the phone system. The alarm line may also be direct.

Read what buyers have said About the ucm6202 & ucm6204:
"Great, easy to use PBX system. Feature rich, but easy to setup and deploy."
"Best pbx for the money...Super easy setup. Love the zero configuration feature"
"The box was very easy to setup. No frills. You are expected to have basic network knowledge and basic grasp of VOIP terminology like FXO FXS Extension....Once you are okay with that. Setting this thing up takes like 30 minutes at most for a 3-5 person office."

"Call queue will not work with Yealink phones. I have confirmed this with their tech support, so don't buy this IP PBX device if you have the Yealink phones."

The UCM6202 IP-PBX Asterisk Appliance has proven to have most of the features businesses require and then some. Eliminating the need for multiple expensive devices, like a video recording DVR, special Video Conferencing subscriptions, and facility access management software, the UCM6202 is truly a converged communications platform appliance that will save a company thousands of dollars every year.  Plus, it can be administered by a computer person, further saving costs on having a telecom company make needed changes.
