[VoiceOps] Key System Using Polycom VVX

Can anyone recommend an onsite IP PBX that fully supports the Polycom VVX
series of phones? When I say support I mean auto configure, do firmware
updates, etc...I know most all IP PBX's will at least be able to use the
VVX as a SIP extension.

The clients wants to emulate a key system. The IP PBX should support SIP
trunks of course for connection to the PSTN. The client also wants the
ability to use a local MoH source, paging, and other common key system
features that hosted systems don't do very well.

I was thinking switchvox, but they don't have phone feature packs for the
VVX line only the older phones.

Adtran has the 7060, but according to the latest release notes:

ADTRAN branded VVX phones (model names ADTRAN VVX 300, ADTRAN VVX 310,
VVX 400, ADTRAN VVX 410, ADTRAN VVX 500, and ADTRAN VVX 600) work with
7000 series AOS release version R10.8.0 and beyond without requiring an
additional license key purchase.
The equivalent Polycom branded phones will not work with release R10.8.0.
If you are currently using the
equivalent Polycom branded phones with the NetVanta 7000 series, you will
need to either remain on a
pre-R10.8 release version or use the ADTRAN branded version of the VVX
phones until a licensing
mechanism can be added to allow the use of Polycom branded VVX models.

Looks like that won't be a good option since the client already has regular
Polycom VVX phones not the ones with Adtran's badge on them.

Any recommendations?
