The Linksys SPA942 by Cisco is a great looking desk phone for the small business interested in switching to Voice over Internet Protocol service. The classic Cisco look and feel is there with the black phone and silver bezel. The familiar VoiceMail red light glows when a message is waiting and gives the phone an official office phone feel.
The sound quality and features of the Linsys SPA942 set it apart from other lesser SIP IP Phones. These phones work great in either wall mount or desktop environments. The Power over Ethernet (POE) option shows the green intentions of Cisco. Add a wireless adapter and these little IP Phones become an even bigger deal. With the WiFi afapter all you need is a power outlet and a good connection to a WiFi signal and you are up and making and receiving calls.
