We've got IP phones at a second loc over VPN with a conference room(new) we need a polycom type phone at.  The phone system is at the main loc.  Wondering if anyone had some model suggestion for a small conference phone  are with about 6 seats and the area is about 20x14.   Not sure if this is SIP or not i have to do some more research...  want to stick to polycom phone if this will even work and saw models like

Avaya B179 SIP Conference Phone
Avaya B159 Conference Phone
Avaya B149 Conference Phone
Avaya 1692 IP Conference Phone
Avaya 2033 IP Conference Phone


Thoughts.  Thx

I have an ip office 406v2 and I recently added a polycom soundstation ip 6000 with the two external mics and its great. This is at the same location as my avaya so I'm not sure how much bandwidth it wants. I did have to buy a 5 sip phones license since I had no sip before this (avaya ip phones are not sip), but I wanted sip for the flexibility and it actually cost about the same since the avaya branded ones are more expensive.

how easy is it to integrate sip lic with your avay system?  again no idea if sip yet.  would the IP conf phone and extra mics work without it being sip but with less quality?  is the 6000 specific to SIP(required) only? thx

The sip license in the manager software (under licenses) shows up as "3rd party IP endpoints"
I bought it from telecomex.com and they were nice and helpful. I would recommend them. Here is my order from them (it was actually early 2011, I didn't realize it was that long ago)
IP Office SIP Endpoint    174957                 1   514.95
RFA/ 5-Phone License
(Shipped)
Polycom SoundStation      IP6000                 1   637.95
IP6000 New
(Shipped)
SoundStation VTX 1000 &   2215-07155-001         1   199.95
IP6000 Extended Mics New
(Shipped)

The license is actually emailed.

I believe the avaya version of this phone is the 1692 which is about $1100 plus the mics. So my thought was why get something locked into avaya, when I can get a sip version and 4 extra licenses (you can do a sip iphone app and make calls over the internet coming out of your office from anywhere in the world) for the same price?

Getting sip setup was a learning experience for me, but really the only setting I had to mess with was the dialing pattern for my ipoffice and that wasn't hard at all. Maybe an hour from opening the box to a working sip conference phone?

The other plus Is that if I need another conference phone, I have sip licenses already so it's much cheaper than a second avaya 1692. With one phone, it's about even, with two you really save money.

this sounds like complication and time consuming. I'm not trying to introduce anything new or work on anything new right.  Just want to know can i plug in some type of IP conf phone like the one I referenced and should it work?  I'm not a phone export and don't know the advantage of SIP vs just IP avaya really at this time.  Thx

All of the phones you listed will work. The top three are digital so they need direct runs to the ip office. The bottom two are ip phones so they run over a standard network.
