Cisco Phone Licensing Question

I need help as I'm comparing 2 vendors as we look at a Cisco Phone system and have the following

69 Analog Lines
11 Public Space Phones
336 Advanced Phones
17 Conference Phones

The phone models we are looking at are 7841, 8831 (Conf) and 8841

One vendor is quoting:
BE6K-UCL-BAS            11
BE6K-UCL-VM            288
BE6K-UCL-ENH            305
BE6K-UWL-STD            25


The other #2:
BE6K-UWL-STD            312
BE6K-UCL-ENH                        27
BE6K-UCL-ESS                            65

I am told Essential is Analog.  I am told ENH is for conference and Public at 28.  I am unclear what Basic is and VM and would like input on what anyone with experience with cisco phone licensing would say about either of these vendors based on this as I am not sure who is closer and even more confused now.

I would work with your Cisco rep as well, but the licensing is a bit complex.

BE6K-UCL-BAS - Very basic user devices, low end ip phones
BE6K-UCL-VM - Voicemail User license
BE6K-UCL-ENH - 1 device per user, more phone models, jabber ect...
BE6K-UWL-STD - Jabber, voicemail licensing
BE6K-UCL-ESS - Analog Licensing

If that helps, ask the VAR to breakdown how the licensing is assigned.

Does Basic support the 7841?  I am concerned with this.

VM would still require a user std license as VM would not give phone anything but VM?

I see STD being most common?

With 336 advanced having vendor 1
quote 288 VM and 305 enhanced seem high?
