Avaya 1608 Phone Handset

The Avaya 1608 IP phone is the executive model in the budget Avaya 1600 IP series. It’s great value and perfect for everyday users. With a design customers are used to, the 1608 is one of the most popular Avaya IP handsets sold. Read more about the 1608 below.

Avaya 1608 Phone Handset (Executive SIP phone)

Perfect for everyday users, the new Avaya 1608 IP handset for VoIP applications replaces the outgoing 5610 phone.   The new Avaya 1600 series range takes on a more traditional look and offers colour coded flashing lights that are very popular with staff and were missing from the previous handsets.  If you're looking for the cheaper, yet identical, digital phone then you're after the new Avaya 1408 digital phone .

The equivalent handset to look at in the premium Avaya 9600 series series is the 9608 .   Unlike the 1608 that has 8 function keys and uses paper labels, the 9608 has a very large display and everything is digital and on screen.   Either way, both are excellent solutions for the average staff member that uses the phone on a daily basis.   If you're after gigabit connectivity, not 10/100, then the 9600 series is for you.

In short, the Avaya 1608 phone handset is the most popular in the new Avaya 1600 IP series lineup because it's cheap, fantastic in its functionality and incredibly easy to use.   Now it looks more like the traditional style phones that people are used to operating it's a smart choice to compliment the award winning Avaya IP 500 R.9 Office pbx.   It's more feature rich than the 1603 and the only real difference between it and 1616 is a slightly bigger (adjustable angle) screen and 8 more flex keys.  The 1608 is compact, well designed and looks stylish in black.

Unlike digital 1400 handsets the 1600 IP range , and the 1608 IP handset, allow you to plug an IP handset into any Ethernet port connected to the system and it will automatically recognise it.   Basic office moves and changes have never been easier than with IP handsets from Avaya.

Avaya has gone back to a more traditional looking phone with this new 1600 series and the 1608 is very much like other popular leading brand offerings by LG Ericsson, Samsung, NEC  and other competitors it comes up against in this space.   Finally you can get the looks you're familiar with, combined with the best functionality in the market at this price point.   Many brands do offer the larger screen driven phones and this is where the 9600 series comes in.

One of the best additions to the new Avaya 1608 phone is the green and red LED lights next to the 8 flex keys on the right side of the console.   They allow you, at a glance, to see the status of staff and/or phone lines if they are active or available.   Most customers use the 8 keys to see other staff because on modern systems you simply dial your number to get an outside phone line automatically.   An Avaya 1608 is the perfect solution for small business, and their budgets, looking to move to an IP environment.  If you implement the One-X on screen PC platform that allows you to do everything with the click of a mouse then you don't necessarily need the more expensive, feature rich 1616 model.   In fact, the 1608 IP phone does everything most staff could ask for.   The only real need for the 1616 is if you had a more staff and literally wanted to see more people on your handset at a glance.

The Avaya One-X allows you to do everything you need on screen from listening to voicemail, to answering and even transferring calls, accessing personal and company speed dials and even co-ordinating a conference call.

If you're looking for cheaper phone handsets to compliment the Avaya IP500 Office pbx then check out the 1403 (basic), 1408 (executive) and 1416 (reception) models.
