Default Selected a Mix of Polycom and Avaya Conference Phones

Avaya acquired Konftel and that is where the analog and SIP (B179) came from. The B189 was jointly developed between the two companies. It runs similar software to the 9641G.
I selected a mix of Polycom and Avaya products for our locations:

* Avaya 1692 IP for larger rooms in satelite offices. I found a source of some new ones.
* Avaya 2490 (digital) for all conference rooms in the corporate office.
* Polycom Soundstation IP5000 for small rooms and offices in satelite offices.

I will be installing these over the next three weeks and will report back how they work. I am also interested in the B189. It sounds like something that I should review.
Thank you,
