To add a couple more into the mix;

Siemens S450IP - Supports up to 6 accounts and offers a similar matrix 
assignment to the Aastra MBU unit but only for up to 6 SIP accounts with
a maximum of 3 channels but each handset can be registered to more than
one base station.

The KIRK system, now owned by Polycom I believe, is a highly scalable 
DECT system much like the RFP32 - pricey but very scalable and the KIRK
handsets are very reliable also.
