Honestly I say Cisco is the best I have dealt with. Purely and simply because they have the support (which is very affordable) and second they make all the components of the solution. If you go  Avaya, Panasonic, Asterisk etc. they don't make the routers and switches needed to put the solution together in full, and it's an issue, I have been there!

The Cisco UC540 would do the trick for you http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6788/vcallcon/ps7293/C78-557768-00_540_platform_reference_guide_DS_v2a.html 

The UC540 has wireless inbuilt as well as an 8 port POE switch. So you would want to get something like a Cisco 200 or 300 series PoE switch with it.

The model you would want is the UC540W-FXO-K9 with two L-UC-PRO-8U= licenses. You can then choose whether to use the SPA500 IP Phones, 6900 IP phones or 7900 IP phones.

In terms of cost I honestly believe you will save in the long run using Cisco, you can also contact Cisco Capital about financing it. The min amount is $5k from memory.

ShoreTel.  I'm not a dealer of thiers, but I do telco/IT for a living, and for your specs, this is the best and most cost-effective.  It'll do legacy, give you all the flexibility of modern technology, is perfectly scalable, and the company doesn't hold you hostage.

Call them, tell them exactly what you want to do, they'll get a bunch of info from you, and then you'll get a quote and a sales pitch.  But it's a good deal.
