Grandstream UCM6300A

I’m SUPER excited about this new PBX offering from Grandstream. It’s the UCM6300A. Ending the modem with 0A means there are 0 FXS/FXO ports and it is audio only — so not video conferences. SUPER power and SUPER affordable! Watch this video in 2x speed if you want! The UCM6300A can handle 250 accounts and 50 simultaneous phone calls — I got ahead of myself in my excitement for getting these devices! The UCM6300A is built on Asterisk 16 https://williehowe.com…

We thought it was time to start sharing some of our pro level UCM deployment tips with you all.
