Nice product, easy configuration!

  • Summary: I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone using an asterisk-based phone system. A few things that would make this phone better: lose the USB port and wifi and add three more line buttons. I now have three phones on my phone system: the spa508g, the spa525g2, and the old cisco 7960 phones. I LOVE the 7960's, but they are hard to configure with the proper SIP firmware and lack BLF functionality.
  • Pros: Easy to integrate into SIP [freepbx] phone system. Really like the five "line" buttons, I set them up as BLF's, which works great! Voice quality on speaker and handset is excellent. Uses PoE, which reduces desk clutter by eliminating power cords and power bricks. Also, simple firmware updates, via web browser (no need for TFTP server)...
  • Cons: None worth mentioning in my opinion

Awesome phone, but a tad overkill

  • Summary: Awesome phones that work great with Asterisk. I just wish they'd left some of the fluff off. If there were a SPA504G with the wifi functionality built in (not the dongle) then I'd go for that in a heartbeat.
  • Pros: The phone has a wonderful display, and everything my customers love about the SPA5xx line. They look good, sound good, and perform well. I have two of these units specifically for the built in WiFi functionality. Semi portable phones where my wired network doesn't reach. I find this to be a more secure solution than to use the other phones with the cisco wifi dongle (which can easily be plugged into any other device). The phone also locks out it's PC LAN port when on ...
  • Cons: The provisioning interface (web gui), while adequate, looks absolutely nothing like the rest of the phone's series. It's OK, but different. I don't understand why you'd make a whole series of phones, then change that on ONE of them. Using Ubiquity access points with "zero hand-off" enabled makes these phones not connect to the network at all. They'll scan, see the network, try to connect, and get stuck there. The phones are also only wireless G devices. Not a huge pro...

Just as you could expect from Cisco!!!

  • Summary: It is a great product, the only issue is it did not come with a power supply. Many of the features are available, some of them can be only activated by the network administrator (VoIP). Bluethoot connectivity is great. Wireless feature it is outstanding. Great product !!
