I'd definitely look into a phone mounted to the wall that has no actual handset, but merely buttons and a speaker grille. It should probably additionally be stainless steel, as I suspect it will need a good cleaning at least daily. The Polycom phones look great on a desk, but they are not industrial in design. -- Tilghman -- _____________________________________________________________________ -- Bandwidth and Colocation Provided by http://www.api-digital.com -- New to Asterisk?
