IP phones typically represent half or more of the cost of a communication system deployment. Traditionally, proprietary phones have locked organizations into a single vendor, sometimes for decades. Not with Ribbon! We don't make phones so a Ribbon solution will never lock customers in. Choose from a wide variety of industry-standard devices from market leaders including Polycom, Yealink and more. Choose the models that best meet the organization's feature and budget requirements.
After nearly two decades of experience integrating with industry standard endpoints, it's no surprise that many devices work out of the box. However, Ribbon continues to invest in testing and development to improve interoperability. We never stop testing with new models of phones and devices.
Polycom, Yealink, Legacy Nortel and More
Using SIP phones doesn't mean giving up features. Ribbon has a robust interoperability program and partners closely with leading vendors such as Polycom, Yealink, Grandstream, TEO and more to be sure sophisticated features, such as shared line appearances, work seamlessly. And unlike the competition, you'll never find hidden or convoluted device licensing that creates punitive pricing for certain phone choices.
Ribbon's Nortel heritage offers support for a number of legacy Nortel/Avaya phones
US Department of Defense organizations require secure, standards-based communication endpoints. Ribbon's JITC certification includes Polycom VVX, TEO AS-SIP and select Nortel/Avaya 1100 series phones.
