Grandstream UCM6300 IP PBX Video Conferencing

The UCM6300 Series offers video conferencing as part of its VoIP ecosystem offerings. The different models offer support for different numbers of rooms and participants:

The series uses WebRTC technology for video conferencing. What is WebRTC? WebRTC is an open standard for real-time communications. It is supported by all major browsers. Because of this, team members will likely not have to download any extra application or plugin to join a secure video conference.

To setup and manage video conferences, you can go to the Grandstream UCM Series web GUI. The admin panel will allow you to enable extensions, configure settings, schedule meetings, set email reminders — and much else.

One of the primary advantages of using an on-premise IP PBX is having such granular control. But most users won’t have to worry about this.

End users can use Grandstream Wave.
