IP Phone Roundup


With all the choices and options for VoIP users, there is one thing all Internet telephony users must have: an endpoint. As with any other piece of hardware, there is a surfeit of IP phone options some are desktop units, others are wireless options, and still others are conference phones, not to mention USB phones and softphones. Different user groups, indeed, different individual users, have varying needs and, therefore, require different endpoints.

In this months product round-up, we have selected a sample of the many firms currently offering desktop IP phones (though many also offer alternative options as well). What we have not done is list all the individual features of each phone that would have taken a years worth of pages. It would also have been overly repetitive, since many of the features from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model are the same standard offerings things like muting, speed-dialing, intercom, conferencing, call appearances, line appearances, group status, user-programmable buttons, and speakerphone.

Instead, we have made a basic assumption that the vast majority of these firms offer a phone or phone line, if you will, that, at the very least, offers most of the basic features and functionality. Within these pages, we have opted to relate what each manufacturer believes sets their IP phones apart.

Naturally, because we are physically constrained within the pages of the magazine, we are aware that there are manufacturers and providers that did not make it onto these pages. Once this listing makes in to, we will add a listing of those firms.
