    Hello there! I am looking for a conference phone that will work with the 3CX v11 platform. In the past I have used analog polycom phones with with an ATA bit I want to go native SIP.

    I purchased a Panasonic conferencing phone that they SWORE was a SIP complaint phone, but once I received it, I was apparent that it was designed for their KX series of PBX's and the SIP compatibility was an afterthought.

    Is there a SIP conferencing phone that is a sure fire match to 3CX?

    Thanks!

    I've used only the Polycom SoundStation ip 6000-70000 both worked with no problems, superior call quailty.

    We have used several Polycom Soundstations (6000 & 7000) and have had no problems.

    @lneblett, I posted a configuration guide for the Max Attach IP in here a bit over a year ago, the sound was barely OK. We have one in a small meeting room in our office.

    The Polycom IP7000 is a good phone, we use it in our main conference room but I must say that it is a bit on the high side $$$.

    Konftel makes a good phone at a reasonable price.

    Charles -

    Thanks, the install was about as easy as it gets.

    Volume for room size was fine, but I did testing with cell phone, so not sure how well mic pick up is for volume at remote side. I offered Polycom as well, but $$ got in the way of start-up attorney's office. Have not tried Konftel, but I think I have another client who is about to pull the trigger, so maybe then.

    The Konftel looks cool. What model works with 3cx? Can it be provisioned?

    *ANY* SIP phone should be work with 3CX, and *ANY* phone can be provisioned if you make your own template. But the Konftel is not an officially supported phone nor does 3CX come with a provisioning template for it. So you would configure the Konftel manually with the SIP account information.
