With SIP, any other brand's SIP handsets can in theory be connected to IP Office. The SIP standard is constantly evolving with new features and methods introduced.
While being standard compliant, not all devices implement all options of the standard, making it hard to almost impossible to predict to what extent any particular device will work.
Avaya also do a SIP softphone which is an application that runs on your laptop or desktop but which retains all telephony functions.
So you can use this to make and receive calls if working at home, at a branch location or if in a hotel.
If you are considering this as a migration path into IP Office your best bet is to come and meet with our presales staff who can test your handset to see what the eventual functionality will be. While great care has been taken to be compliant with SIP standards, no guarantee can be given that all devices claiming support of SIP will work flawlessly.
