Let’s take a closer look!
Grandstream GSC3505 & GSC3510 Features
Grandstream GSC3505 and Grandstream GSC3510 share an incredible foundation of first-class technology.
First off, the speakers have a high-fidelity 8W speaker that supports up to fullband audio. An HD acoustic chamber makes audio richer and fuller. Enhanced acoustic echo cancellation clarifies the sound. Increasing sound quality increases comprehension and reduces misunderstandings.
A standout feature is wireless connectivity.
Both GSC3505 and GSC3510 have built-in dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi radios to connect the speaker to your Wi-Fi network.
On top of Wi-Fi, the speakers have Bluetooth 4.1+ EDR radios to enable Bluetooth devices like smartphones to connect to them. When you connect, the speaker can act as a one-way speaker.
Each speaker has a 2-pin multi-purpose input port, which can be used for various applications with an auxiliary device: powering the speaker, broadcasting voice prompts, call dialing or call recording, triggering light switches, and more.
All of the features to this point are shared by both GSC3505 and GSC3510.
Grandstream GSC3510 adds two-way audio. You can call the speaker directly or configure the speaker to call a specific extension using an auxiliary device.
On top of the high-fidelity 8W speaker, GSC3510 uses a three-microphone array with a 13-foot pickup range to provide full-duplex audio communications.
These are network-connected paging speakers for integration with your IP network. They support the open SIP protocol. Each speaker can have 16 SIP accounts. They can also receive multicast pages.
To manage the speaker, you use a simple web-based graphical user interface .
Because Grandstream is a leader in the field of IP technology, they include enterprise-class networking features with the speakers:
- PoE Class 3 or PoE+ Class 4 support
