Avaya 1692 VS SIP

Hello All. 


I had AVAYA 1692 H323 Conference Phone. 

Unfortunately Avaya allows only H323 protocol  for works. 

As I understand Avaya 1692  is OEM of Polycom SoundStation IP 4000.

I want to connect  AVAYA`s phone to Asterisk PBX via SIP protocol.

I was found SIP firware  on support site:
y question is how can to upload new firmware (SIP) to Avaya 1692? 

Do have someone an experience in this action?

Please help.

Hello @VMike,


welcome to the Polycom Community.


The phone may look the same but it is not. You cannot convert the Phone from an Avaya 1692 into a Polycom SIP phone.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
