Avid endorses two primary brands of IP phones, Aastra and Polycom. Aastra phones support a broader set of features and Polycom phones are generally regarded as having a richer sound quality and better speakerphone. All models supported by Avid are in broad deployment across our customer base, are highly reliable, and support Quality-of-Service engineering for superior voice quality across IP networks.

Let our Account Representatives help you choose the phones that are right for your business operation.

Key buying factors are:

  • Volume of usage (higher-end phones make handling a large volume of calls much easier)
  • Feature requirements (Aastra phones have more soft keys for line monitoring, park orbits, etc)
  • Expansion module, aka “sidecar”  (Aastra sidecars provide more keys and options)
  • Importance of speakerphone (Polycoms are generally regarded by our clients as having superior sound quality)
