Alternative way to Log into Polycom VVX 310

Hello,

 

We are currently using Skype for Business with Polycom VVX 310 deskphone.  We can log into our Skype for Business accounts on these phones, but I am wondering if there are any alternate ways to log into the phone without having to manually input the letters/characters onto the phone physically?  

 

I believe BToE allows for this but requires for the phone to be physically tethered to the computer.  Are there any other options besides this?

 

Thank you for your time.

You can use pin authentication.  This is much faster typically and allows admins to deploy phones without knowing user passwords.

 

I'd suggest reviewing Jeff Schertz' article for setting this up: http://blog.schertz.name/2010/12/configuring-lync-server-for-phone-edition-devices/

 

And you can see it in action a bit in this article (though an older UCS):
