CCX 500 issue with Savi Headset

Hello,

 

I'm using a CCX 500 forTeams (fw 7.0.2.1072) and am having a compatibility issue with a Savi 740 headset.  They are connected via an APP-51 electronic hook switch cable, as recommended.  This configuration seems to be supported, based on the Poly compatibility guide (https://compatibility.plantronics.com/deskphone).

The problem is: The phone doesn't receive a pick-up or hang-up signal from the headset.   One needs to manually press the headset button on the phone to pick up a call.

The other direction seems to work (headset registers changes from the phone).  Once the headset is active, audio quality is fine.

Some things I've tried:

Updating phone firmware (I was on 6.2.23), updating Savi firmware, updating Teams version, trying a different APP-51 cable, trying a different Savi 740, resubscribing headset, enabling "Poly EHS" at HookSwitch Mode in settings.  

I've also spoken to tech support at Poly, on both the headset and phone side, to no avail (they suggested I post here).

I did notice that in the release notes for version 6.2.22, they explicitly list the Savi 740 as compatible, but they do not in subsequent versions.  Would the newer firmware remove only this partial aspect of compatibility?

Any guidance would be much appreciate!  Thanks

Hello @JS1 ,

 

Welcome to the Poly Community.

If the reference was removed from the 6.2.23 and 7.0.2 Release notes this usually means this was there in error in the 6.2.22 and is actually not a compatible headset.

 

I check this internally and get this removed from the 6.2.22 release notes.

Hi Steffen,

 

Thank you for your reply.

I bought the CCX 500 for my company based on the advertisement of Savi compatibility, so it would be a shame for us if that was an error.

Looking at the latest (7.0.2) listing of headset support, I only see USB and Bluetooth options.  Yet the hardware of course has RJ-9 and EHS ports.  Has Poly basically dropped compatibility for these ports?  It would be surprising to me, especially since Poly is such a prominent producer of DECT headsets.

 

Thanks

Hello @JS1 ,

 

I would suggest you escalate this so we can track this and provide you with an official answer.


In order to raise a support ticket, you need to work with your Poly reseller as they may need to do this for you.

End Customers are usually unable to open a ticket directly with Poly support. Available End User Poly services offerings are detailed here

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter providing your MAC address or your Poly devices serial will enable us to look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Poly device from.

Please ensure to follow the above as our support team will close any tickets raised by end-users without any service contract. Once done please share the Ticket reference so I can link this together.

Re: CCX 500 issue with Savi Headset

I'm having the same issue. I thought it was just me! I moved my Savi 8245 (W8200B) from my VVX450 to my CCX500. Initially, I could at least get hookswitch. Now I get no call control from the headset. Audio, yes. But no control.

 

(I dream someday that a software update will let the Savi have call control over Teams on PC, too..)

 

I'll have our product team submit a ticket, but wanted to document here.

Hey, JS1. 

I had a similar issue w/ my Savi 8245 and my CCX 500

It didn't work on 7.0.3; I upgraded to 7.1.1 and EHS works great; as expected

Hopefully you've figured it out by now, but if not, please upgrade and try again!

Re: CCX 500 issue with Savi Headset

Hello @Danny_Unger_360  and @JS1 ,

 

pretty sure I took this ticket internally and it was Teams profile and this is not yet fixed in 7.1.x.

 

For openSIP and Skype for Business, the fix is in 7.1.1

Re: CCX 500 issue with Savi Headset

Thanks Danny for the update!  Steffen is correct that I’m using Teams, but good to hear a fix is in the works. 

I had given up hope but found an effective workaround: I purchased an EHS cable to USB instead (APU-76) and found it succeeds in getting the Savi headset to work properly with the CCX 500  (as a USB headset).  I haven’t seen this documented anywhere, hopefully someone else finds it helpful.
