BToE solution with Microsoft Teams ?

Re: BToE solution with Microsoft Teams ?

An update on this topic as I just moved our users to Teams Only mode:


  1. BToE incompatibiliy - the biggest reported issue is the fact that users need to manually unlock the phone. I think this can be resolved by Polycom regardless of any other interaction with Teams. As long as the BToE is paired (not necessary Activated) it should be possible to achieve this.
  2.  It turns out that if you have users without a Phone System license from Microsoft they will not be able to receive P2P calls (internal calls) on the Polycom phones. They can search and call internal users from the Polycom phones. I realise this is probably a Microsoft issue but for now 3PIP phones are not a good experience on Teams Only mode!

Polycom, please look #1 


Thank you.
