we can see there are three vendors which supply IP phones which are supported by Lync. These three vendors are:
SNOM have been supporting OCS and Lync for many years. There phones are mainstream and offer good quality and features. This was our choice when purchasing IP desk phones.
- 821 model Ethernet ports support gigabit connection and can offer wireless connectivity
- Ability to conference 5 people into an existing call
- Headset support
- User intuitive
- Easy to source
- Customization of Address book with Active Directory query's
While the differences between the different vendors were not hugely significant, SSW decided to go with SNOM as our base IP phone.
