Cisco IP Phones End-of-Sale Matrix

For the past several years Cisco experimented a lot with its IP phone portfolio. There have been several IP phone series launched after the good old 7900 and some of them only lived for a couple of years.

BTW, even in the movies of 2015 Cisco still presents 7900 (not 7800 or 8800) IP phone, check "Spy" by Paul Feig.

So It was quite difficult to follow Cisco’s brave marketing guys and to puzzle out what to sell and what is too late to sell :-). It is finally settled. Cisco’s IP phone portfolio is:

  • 7800 series – cost-effective devices for common purposes,
  • 8800 series – HD video phones for the top brass.

I have not listed:

  • 3905 – I doubt that this low-cost SIP phone without XML-services, JTAPI and AXL-control is a truly Cisco product,
  • Cisco 8945, 9951, 9971 - the end of sale announcement has not arrived yet, but I think it is a matter of several months (you're welcome to argue with me:),
  • DX650 – though this device is a phone-looking one, still it’s a representative of the DX series that belongs to the collaboration species.

Forget all other IP phones, they're no longer available:
