Vertical Wave (both IP500 and IP2500) supports three types of phones:
IP Phones – These are the most common type of feature-rich phones to use with Wave. Note that no additional IP phone license is needed when using a Vertical VIP-series IP phone. If using a 3rd party (non-Vertical) IP phone, a 3rd party license is required.
Digital Phones – These are feature-rich phones which require that your system has a Digital Station Card/Module installed.
Analog Phones – While Wave does support analog devices, analog phones are not typically used with business phone systems. Customers may have older Polycom Analog Conference phones, analog fax machines, alarm systems, etc which require analog connectivity.
