The 6900 series is the best option for offices that need IP telephony flawlessly making and receiving calls and can fit on most of the user types due to the number of models. It does not fit for companies that want to use video, none of the models has a video embedded and the tools to integrate those devices with video are that good[.]

Yealink Conference Phones are well-suited for small to large-sized businesses. It provides excellent call quality in an easy-to-use interface which makes it perfect for any type of office or conference room. It does require power-over-ethernet, so you will require either a network switch with PoE or a separate adapter that will provide power to the phone.

  • The phone could be a little smaller.

I have only had to contact Yealink once in the entire time we have been using their phones. The issue was resolved quickly and did not impact our day-to-day business. Their website provides excellent support; user manuals are available, as well as firmware upgrades that you are able to download and install.

When looking at phone models, it's really important to consider not only the price tag, we all care about effective pricing, but also remembering that actual humans will need to leverage that device to accomplish work, connect with another human for some reason, or save a life.

We tried out the poly com and the Avaya. neither of them had clarity at higher volumes. We have some employees with impairment. the avaya was way too expensive and the polycom was just garbage
