Smart Phone Control Protocol (SPCP) support after Jan 2014

Hi,

Could anyone help me, what would happen with SPA phones (which supports SPCP) after the EoS of UC540/560 and UC320W?

It would be in the near future (January 2014) and currently I do not know any other Call Control device, which supports SPCP.

This document advice to migrate to CUCMBE 6K, which is completely on a different price level and even does not supports SCPC phones.

Should SMB customers buy BE6K and use all their phones on SIP?

Any help is appreciated!

End of Sales for SPA phones is not announced, and probably still far away until  their sales will decline enough to justify. Of course, discontinuing UC320 and UC500  is a perfect way for Cisco to sell much less SPA phones.

If Cisco really wants their SPA phone customers to all go 3CX, Digium or whatever, that is their unfortunate choice.

Personally, I'm not affected, because I've never sold not even one of these, as to me they looked inferior and short-lived since the beginning.
