The Avaya 1600 series IP phone line represents the cost effective alternative to more expensive VoIP telephones.

The new Avaya 1600 IP phones series, also known as Avaya one-X™ Deskphone Value Edition, is a family of cost-effective IP telephone line that delivers familiar features at an attractive price point for businesses with basic communications needs. The recent Avaya IP series includes a portfolio of phones designed to meet a wide range of end-user needs including the call center. Designed as a stand-alone portfolio, these telephones may be intermixed with other Avaya IP telephones, especially the Avaya one-X™ Deskphones (9600 series).

Avaya 1600 series IP phones are compatible with Avaya IP Office R4.2 or higher and Avaya Communication Manager R3.0 or higher. Combining the features of traditional telephones and the latest in telephone user experience, 1600 Series IP telephones provide critical capabilities not often found in competitively priced models.

Telephone Magic Inc., a long-time online leader in Avaya IP Office phone systems and telephones, is thrilled to offer the Avaya 1600 Series IP phone line. Jeff Jackson, president of Telephone Magic, notes the Avaya 1600 IP phone series is "a great IP alternative from Avaya, which allows our customers to purchase more VoIP phones within a tight budget for their busy call centers, offices, and remote sites where multiple offices are linked together by IP telephony."

The Avaya 1603 IP phone is designed for walkup and everyday user profiles. This telephone is especially practical when used in conjunction with the Avaya IP Softphone. The 1603 IP telephone supports 3 line appearances or feature keys. The display on the 1603 IP phone has two lines of 16 characters.

The Avaya 1608 IP phone is a value-priced, full-featured IP phone designed for light to moderate everyday phone users. The Avaya 1608 IP telephone supports eight line appearances or feature keys. The Avaya 1608 phone also supports a broad portfolio of Avaya wired and wireless headsets through its integrated headset jack. The 1608 IP phone offers a context-sensitive user interface, three softkeys, along with a four-way navigation cluster for scrolling through a local contacts list or call logs. The display on the 1608 IP phone has three lines of 24 characters.

The largest set in the 1600 series is the Avaya 1616 IP phone, which is a full-featured IP phone designed for communications-intensive users. Designed for the Navigator user profile and managers needing one-touch access and a large display, the Avaya 1616 IP phone supports 16 line appearances or feature keys on the phone itself while a 32-button expansion model can also be added, which provides access to a total of 48 feature keys or speed dial buttons. The 1616 IP phone also supports a broad portfolio of Avaya wired and wireless headsets through its integrated headset jack.

The Avaya BM32 Button Module is the aforementioned expansion module which can be added to the Avaya 1616 IP Phone. Up to three of these modules can be added for a total of 112 buttons with dual LED's (including the sixteen from the phone itself). The only limitation of the BM32 is that it requires an external Avaya power supply (1151D1). 

Jackson says, "The Avaya 1600 series IP phone line represents the cost effective alternative to more expensive VoIP telephones. It really is amazing how many great features are packed into the 1600 IP phone series when you consider the low cost of these telephone sets. The fact that they are actually IP phones is a significant bonus from our perspective, and that is a huge win for our clients."

Jackson continues, "While we do offer more expensive lines of IP phones, such as the Avaya 9600 series or other manufacturers' IP phones that are pricier, such as Cisco or Polycom SIP and IP-PBX sets, anyone that already has an Avaya IP Office phone system or has migrated from Nortel Norstar telephone systems to the IP500 platform can take advantage of these affordable 1600 IP phones. It's a good IP series at a great price."
