Polycom purchase

My office is looking to replace current Polycom model 2200-16200-001 as it no longer meets the needs in one of our larger conference rooms.  The conference room holds about 30 people.

We're looking at several options

Option 1:  Purchase Soundstation2 W cordless with wireless mics.  How many mics can be used with this model?

Option 2: What model Polycom would allow for more than 2 mics

Option 3:  Does the cord length for mics on the 2200-16200-001 come standard or can mics be purchased with longer cords?  What's the maximum amt of mics to be used with this model?

Re: Polycom purchase

Hello BMA,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The Datasheet for the SS2 ex => here <= and for the SS2W => here <= show that each unit can handle two external microphones.


The length of the cables is defined (according to the datasheet) as a 8 ft. (2.4 m)


I do not think any of our analog Conference phone range does support more than 2 microphones.


The SSIP7000 as a SIP Phone can be used as a twin installation (via a multimod interface) or can use up to two expansion microphones.


Please ensure that you contact a Polycom reseller for final confirmation before purchasing any products.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

If you need a 'multimics' PSTN installation for a large hall it may be interesting for you to look at SoundStructure C-Series with TEL1 or TEL2 board:
