Nextiva Review – Poly IP 550

Poly SoundPoint IP 550 Review


Poly has been delivering business value for many years, and have proven their industry leading experience in the Poly 550 IP desk phone. Not only does the Poly 550 boast four-lines it also supports a huge list of revolutionary features. Thanks to Acoustic Clarity Technology, a patent unique to Poly products, the SoundPoint IP 550 provides distinct and crystal clear HD voice quality; making the Poly 550 optimal for business conferencing use and in busy environments. The back lit 320 x 160- pixel graphical grayscale LCD display provides optimal viewing potential for directories, buddy lists and XHTML supported web applications; tools capable of enhancing both business processes and productivity. When compared to the SPA9xx and SPA5xx series VoIP phones by Cisco, the price of the Poly SoundPoint IP 550 is quite higher. Priced at about $250, many smaller or home based businesses are unable to justify the cost even when used in conjunction with a hosted VoIP system. Those who do, however, are likely to experience the extreme manageability and business bolstering effects of an IP phone designed for both the boardroom and the call center floor.
