    We use a custom built asterisk box. For the physical PBX.

    The phones range from pda's with voip software.

    We also have several Aastra 312 Wireless Phone Very expensive but incredibly reliable.

    We have several other standard wifi phones what for the life of me cannot remember the model. However these are not so good.

    we have started rolling out poe phones as some of the cheaper phones either run out of battery far too quickly or drop the wireless connection.

    If you are considering wifi voip you need a lot of heavy investment to make it practical. I would personally from our experience use standard voip.

    staff hopfully dont notice a difference. if anything its easier. someone moves room we just log them off and back on to a different handset.

    staff to have a problem remembering to charge them..

    I've deployed Siemens Optipoint headsets..their a pain to configure and have issues detecting dhcp..most of the time you need a wifi system that can handoff to another access point as well as broadcast the same SID..yea its quite the investment and can turn into a nightmare..but if you need weve used aruba acess points along with the aruba acess point manager works pretty well just dont expect perfection.
