Description

Grandstream GXP1782 IP Phone Uganda

Grandstream GXP1782 Uganda is the latest offering in the mid-range IP phone market. This IP Phone is designed for people who want an enterprise-level phone without dipping all the way into the touchscreen market and beyond. The mid-level phone market is already saturated, so what exactly does the Grandstream GXP1782 bring to the table? The Grandstream GXP1782 is visually similar to the GXP2170 and GXP2135. In addition to the same black gloss screen bezel as the other two phones, the GXP1782 has a silver highlighted color screen, along with silver DTMF keys. The look is nice, but we’d like to see Grandstream pick a style and stick with it, at least for a little while. The GXP1782 is 9” wide with a 2”-wide handset with no central taper. The layout is good and the buttons are large and well-spaced. The eight-line/vMPK keys are positioned around the backlit 200 x 80 pixel LCD screen. It comes with the standard array of dedicated function keys : phone book, transfer, conference, headset, mute, and volume. There are also four-way directional keys for menu navigation. This layout seems consistent across all of the Grandstream’s enterprise phones.

Grandastream GXP1782 Uganda IP Phone has been developed specifically to scale with growing businesses. These endpoints provide all the basic features expected from modern IP endpoints, plus some more advanced functionalities that can be progressively integrated as the business expands. This allows enterprises to invest more into growing their business, without having to give up many of the useful and sometimes vital more advanced features. With a stylish design and mid-range call capacity, such phones are ideal for fast-growing SMBs requiring IP telephony features to evolve along with their business.

Features

The Grandstream GXP1782 Uganda supports up to eight SIP accounts. As far as telephony features go, the GXP1782 offers hold, call transfer, call forward, call park, auto-answer, and off-hook auto-dial. The phone also has call waiting, 11 dedicated function keys, and 4 XML programmable context-sensitive keys. One feature that the GXP1782 may be lacking for a mid-range IP phone is Bluetooth.

5-Way Conferencing

A nice feature of many newer Grandstream models is multi-party conferencing. In the case of the GXP1782, the phone can conference up to five people together without having to use any third-party conferencing service. This is a big plus. Not every mid-range phone offers standalone five-way conferencing.

Handset Shape

This may come down to personal preference, but we found that the wide, nontapered handset was uncomfortable to hold. It really just feels too wide and too thin.

Virtual Multipurpose Keys

Users have myriad configuration options available to them with the GXP1782’s virtual multipurpose keys (vMPKs). You can configure each vMPK to do one of 22 different features. The GXP1782 has 32 different vMPK’s that you can configure. That brings the different possible setup combinations to more than 700. Below is a screenshot that captures some of the possible behaviors you can assign to a vMPK.

The number of vMPKs on the GXP1782 is one of the main reasons why the phone is a mid-level phone and not an entry-level one.

Voice Quality

The Grandstream GXP1782’s voice quality yielded excellent results in testing. Grandstream continues to add Opus codec support to new models, including the GXP1782. We found that SIP to SIP calls was pristine, and calls to the PSTN suffered from almost no quality dips.

We called some colleagues with the Grandstream GXP1782 Uganda speakerphone to see how it sounded to them. Everyone we spoke to was very impressed with the call quality. The speakerphone picks up voices well, with minimal background noise. The voice quality is full, not echoey or tinny. Overall it was very much like speaking with someone using a handset.
