IP Desktop Phones
Frost & Sullivan defines Internet protocol (IP) desktop phones as physical telephone devices with built-in IP signaling protocols (such as H.323 or SIP) that are used in conjunction with IP systems either in a hosted or premise-based environment. A n IP phone converts a standard telephone audio signal into a digital signal format that can be transmitted over the Internet. On the receiving side, an IP desktop phone converts incoming digital signals to standard telephone audio. Some IP desktop phones also allow the transmission of image data during a call, so they can be defined as IP video phones.

The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a signaling protocol used for launching sessions in an IP network. A session could be a simple two-way telephone call or it could be a collaborative multimedia conference session. The ability to establish these sessions means that a host of innovative services becomes possible following an open-standard philosophy. Because of its scalability and flexibility, SIP has emerged as the most preferred IP standard for implementing voice over IP (VoIP).

SIP Phones
SIP desktop phones are IP-based devices that additionally adhere to the session initiation protocol standard, enabling interoperability with similarly SIP-compliant IP platforms. These devices offer native and basic integration with the majority of SIP systems.

IP Media Phones
IP media phones or video phones are advanced IP desktop phones equipped with larger displays and either integrated or plugged cameras to enable personal video communication, as well as provide support for advanced telephony and unified communications (UC) features and integrated business applications.
