Why would I choose HP IP phones optimized for Microsoft Lync™?

By Carol Shottes, UC and Commercial Solutions Marketing Manager, HP Networking


When I think phones, the name HP isn’t the first company name on the tip of my tongue.  Is that your experience, too? So when HP introduces new IP phones optimized for Microsoft® Lync™ I have some questions!

Why is HP offering these IP phones? 


Back in May 2009, HP and Microsoft announced a four-year strategic global initiative to deliver an end-to-end unified communications and collaboration solution.  The initiative covered product development and integration activities, with joint teams to collaborate on products and services development across Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office Communications Server (now Lync™) as well as HP Networking products—including HP Survivable Branch Communication zl Module powered by Microsoft  Lync for branch offices and now Microsoft qualification for new IP phones optimized for Lync™.


Why would I purchase an IP phone optimized for Microsoft Lync™ from HP? 


First, these natively integrated phones deliver rich presence, clear, high-definition audio and seamless plug-and-play functionality at an attractive price.


Second, with the addition of the phones to the HP Microsoft portfolio of products and services, you can now deal with one company, HP, to provide all the software, hardware and service components needed for their Microsoft Lync™ upgrades and implementations worldwide.  


Now that’s a solid convenience, even if HP isn’t the first company name on the tip of my tongue when I think IP phones.

When is this unit ETA?

Also, point me to url that outlines HP's UC strategy. Is it to provide all the hardware needed for a Lync install? or just some strategic items? I'm very interested.

HP's IP phones for Microsoft Lync will ship in October 2011.


With regards to HP's UC strategy with Microsoft - in May 2009, HP and Microsoft announced a four-year strategic global initiative to deliver an end-to-end unified communications and collaboration solution.  The initiative covered product development and integration activities, including Microsoft Unified Communications qualification for new IP desk phones. 


For full details on the initiative,

I called HP and they say the 4110 and 4120 phones are DISCONTINUED...is this accurate?

carol.shottes | ‎10-18-2011 03:56 PM

No, not accurate.  The HP 4110 (model # J9765A) and HP 4120 (model # J9766A) IP phones were launched on September 26, 2011.

So, are these phones only compatible with Microsoft Lync? If not, what other products can we use them with?


Thanks if you can help,



Yes, the HP 4110 and 4120 IP phones have been optimized for Microsoft Lync.   They are another product offering from the 4 year strategic agreement between HP and Microsoft to deliver a complete, end-to-end unified communications and collaboration solution for Microsoft Lync.


HP is not in the general telephone equipment manufacturers business.

I’m currently using CISCO phones model no CISCO 7905. Can someone please help me to find the compatible HP phone for this particular one?  I can try it when my next requirement comes.




Thanks for your interest, but HP is not in the general telephone equipment manufacturers business.

The HP 4110 and 4120 IP phones mentioned in this blog are optimized for Microsoft Lync only.

I'd like to know whether the HP 4110 will time out after a user has logged in and not used the phone for a day or so.

Yeah I agree with you. But these HP phones are more complecated in use. I believe windows are always a better option for all my phones.
