When it comes to IP desk phones, the secondary market is the way to go - Network World

As I sit at my desk and stare at the phone in front of me, I think back to a time when "experts" predicted desk phones would no longer be needed.

Well, those experts were certainly wrong. Instead, we have several options in desk phones — so many, in fact, that you may feel you need directory assistance just to get started. You're left wondering if you should go with an old favorite or try a newer model. And you're likely concerned about Cisco's announced end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7945, 7965, 7975, and 7916. Are they still a good value, and will they still be available in the secondary market?

Or maybe you're wondering if you should go with the Cisco 8800 Series models that came out a few years ago that were supposed to eventually replace the whole 7900 Series. Can you afford all the bells and whistles that go with the 8800 series?

Is VoIP technology the way to go?

VoIP is the technology that converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to make a call directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or other data-driven devices. VoIP saves businesses a lot of money and offers many benefits over a typical landline.

In today's fast-paced world, everything is digital. So, if you want to keep up, you'd better be digital, as well. That means using all of the benefits that VoIP offers. To do that, you'll want the absolute best VoIP phones you can find. And that doesn't necessarily mean brand new.

If you're moving, or considering a move, to a VoIP phone system, or you just need more VoIP phones, then you know the benefits such a migration could have for your organization. You stand to save a lot of money and reap several benefits over traditional phone systems now that long-distance calling will become truly inexpensive.
