Interoperability with Grandstream CPE endpoints is integral to assuring Epygi’s SMB customers are receiving the most reliable, cost-effective and advanced voice/video solutions available. Additionally, Epygi has achieved the status of preferred solutions provider and has joined Grandstream’s recently announced reseller program which gives worldwide partners implementing Grandstream’s GXP CPE endpoints another option to increase revenue via instant rebates when GXP products are purchased.
