We have a small office (10 users), and we want to get video phones for the entire office. We're trying to decide between 8945 and 9951 (+video camera).
After reviewing the data sheets, it appears both will meet our needs from a feature perspective. I'm leaning towards the 8945 due to price, but I was having trouble finding user reviews of each phone. Does anyone have any opinions? For example the does the 8945 seem sluggish, or "cheap" when using it? Any other considerations that might push us to the 9900s?
One important consideration is the KEM support, which is available in 99XX models. You can also check the Open caveats section of the release notes for firmware to get an understanding of the limitations of these models
But from a feature point of view, both phones will meet my needs. Obviously the price difference is a minor factor. But aside from that I was looking for some real world reviews/ratings. One Cisco SE suggested the 8945 because they're the newer line. Thoughts?
9951s are more popular and will probably be supported longer with new firmware releases since they run the same software as the 8961 and 9971. This means the development teams will also spend more time on these phones which hopefully means better code.
I still haven't seen too many 8945s being used by clients so I'd be careful going with them as they may have a similar fate as the 69XX series.

If you have 2 ISR routers, one acting as Failover, do we need to have both the same number of SRST licenses on the 2 routers?
No. You will only need the SRST licenses on the primary router. Because this feature...
