VVX Phones: LDAP inverse search

VVX Phones: LDAP inverse search


we will potentially change our landline phones from Unify Openstage to the Poly VVX series (with Skype for Business). Now we have a question about LDAP. We found diffent information about LDAP search. But it´s also possible to configure an inverse search by LDAP?

The use case is easy: Phone is ringing and check the phone number in the Active Directory. If an record found, the name of the caller will show. If not, the Phone number shows.


Is this possible? 


Best Regards,

Hello @Daniela Z. ,


welcome to the Poly Community.

Skype for Business already supports this feature on currently supported UC Streams via the ABS aka Reverse Number Lookup feature.
