Trio 8500 SIP and S4B without switching profile?

Hello,

 

We have just purchased two Trio 8500 conference phones, as they were reported to work with open SIP and S4B.

I took this to mean you can use one or the other interchangably.

 

After receiving the devices and trying to set them up, it seems this is not the case.

Is it possible to actually have one profile with both systems available, without having to switch the entire phones profile and reboot?

 

Thanks

James

Why is this so complicated? Why is it that we can't do this kind of thing either on the phone or web UI, but instead we have to monkey around with config files?

Hello @Cory IT ,

 

Simply because you "should" know what you are doing before this is just another option via the Web UI or Phone UI.

 

You can always request a change to the current workflow:

 

Jan 03, 2013 Question: How can I request a change aka feature request to the current Polycom SIP / UC Software?

Resolution: Please check => here <=

 

A simple import of the above-linked configuration attached to the FAQ post should suffice.

 

Our devices are the only ones in the market that support this feature offering a wide range of usability compared to our competition.
