New Call Transfer User Interface Option
In this software version, users who transfer calls can more easily choose between Blind and Consultative transfers. On the Call Transfer screen for the user’s default transfer type, the user can press More to access a new soft key to change to the alternate transfer type. For example, if the user’s default transfer type is consultative, a Blind soft key is displayed.
End-user Access to Ethernet and DHCP Settings
New parameter up.basicSettings.networkConfigEnabled lets you configure phones to allow end users to access to the Ethernet and DHCP settings through the Basic menu.
Polycom phones registered with a Microsoft server enable you to perform multiple functions with a contact distribution list:
● Search for, add, and delete a distribution list
● View a distribution list, and expand a distribution list to view all members
● View the contact card of a distribution list and of an individual member
● Conference with a distribution list
● Call an individual member of a distribution list
Microsoft Quality of Experience (QoE) Monitoring Server Protocol
Microsoft Quality of Experience Monitoring Server Protocol (MS-QoE) enables you to monitor the user's audio quality and troubleshoot audio problems. QoE reports contain only audio metrics and do not contain video or content sharing metrics. This feature also enables you to query the QoE status of a phone from the Web Configuration Utility.
You can configure phones to be protected with a lock code that enables users to access personal settings from different phones. You can configure Device Lock on the Skype for Business server or using Polycom parameters on a centralized provisioning server. If you enable Device Lock using both methods, centralized provisioning parameters take precedence. You cannot enable or disable Device Lock using the Web Configuration Utility or from the phone menu
Polycom BToE PC Pairing
Administrators can use this feature to allow users to automatically or manually pair their VVX business media phone with their computer using the Polycom Better Together over Ethernet Connector application. Users can select the pairing mode in the Web Configuration Utility or in the Features menu on the phone. By default, BToE PC Pairing is enabled for phones registered with Skype for Business. When administrators disable BToE pairing, users cannot pair their VVX phone with their computer using BToE. In order to use this new functionality, you must install both BToE Connector App 3.4.0 and UC Software 5.5.1. For best results, Polycom recommends that you deploy BToE Connector App 3.4.0 before you deploy UC Software 5.5.1.
User Log Upload
To help troubleshoot user issues, administrators can enable or disable for users the ability to upload diagnostic logs from the phone or Web Configuration Utility and set log levels from the phone menu. This feature is available on all VVX business media phones registered with Skype for Business Server on-premises or online and with Microsoft Lync 2013 or 2010 Server.
Phone User Interface
The user interface for VVX 500 and 600 series business media phones was updated to match the theme used in the Skype for Business client. This feature is enabled by default on VVX 500/501 and 600/601 phones with the Lync/Skype Base Profile or SKU.
Unified Contact Store
Administrators can migrate users’ contacts to Microsoft Exchange Server to enable synchronization when users manage contacts or contact information from an application or device, for example, the VVX business media phone, Skype for Business client, Outlook, or Outlook Web Application from a mobile device.
Web Sign-In for Online Deployments
Web Sign-in enables users to securely log in to Skype for Business from the phone using a computer web browser or mobile device. Users can sign in concurrently to a maximum of eight devices by default. When users are signed in to multiple devices and sign out from one device, users remain signed in to all other devices. This sign in option is available only for Skype for Business Online deployments.
Expanded Support for USB Headsets
Support for the following Plantronics USB Headsets with VVX 500, VVX 600, VVX 501, VVX 601, and VVX 401 phones has been added to this release:
