It has been my experience that it is easier to get Polycom firmware 
updates (just download off their web site) than just about anybody 
<cough>cisco sucks<cough> else.

Polycom even has PDFs on how to set up TFTP, FTP, or HTTP servers and 
guides on configuring their gear to work with Asterisk.

In a "restaurant" environment, I'd be looking for some sort of faceplate 
overlay to make cleanup easier.
