The Grandstream Beta Club creates the opportunity for IP tech enthusiasts to beta test Grandstream Products prior to official launch

Boston, MA (April 2, 2014) – Grandstream Networks, the leading manufacturer of IP voice/video telephony and video surveillance solutions, is introducing a new $1 beta testing program by the name of Grandstream Beta Club. The program is designed to attract IP technology enthusiasts and early adopters to test Grandstream products and to provide feedback and propose software enhancements prior to the official release of the product. The application is free, as well as the beta testing product model and shipping; a $1 charge will apply to approved participants only to cover handling costs.

Grandstream Beta Club is looking for IP technology aficionados, those who like to dig in and test new products, and those whose innovative ideas can revolutionize the IP communications landscape. Ideal applicants are those who have extensive hands-on experience with IP products, platforms and endpoints, and show a dedicated interest in exploring new IP technology and features. In addition to general screening questions, the application contains an open-ended “Impress Us” section – applicants will be challenged to show what makes them a top candidate for the Grandstream Beta Club. Creativity, innovativeness and experimentation are among the top traits of a successful Beta Tester.

Grandstream will begin accepting applications for beta testers on the first day of launch, April 2, 2014. Selected applicants will be offered a FREE product with FREE shipping worldwide, along with access to the online Grandstream Beta Club portal to provide feedback, suggestions, and bug discoveries through a dedicated forum. Prompt technical support will be provided by Grandstream engineers throughout the entire Beta test period.

The first product being released to the Grandstream Beta Club is an exciting new AndroidTM IP video phone. The beautifully designed multimedia phone features HD capable real-time video communication, capacitive touch screen color LCD, Gigabit network ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and all major communication applications including SIP, Microsoft LYNCTM, and SkypeTM. 50 units of the Android IP video phone will be available for Beta testing starting April 2, 2014.
