Central management, particularly directories, for IP 550

I'm new to VoIP in general, and Polycom in particular.  I now have 5 IP 550 phones working with an external voice provider (at the moment, happens to be Nextiva).  Is there a way I can manage the phones - particularly their directories - from a central location?  Do I need to purchase proprietary software to do this?

Hello Thumper,


welcome to the Polycom Community.


As far as I am aware there is no 3rd Party management Software.


You could use active Directory to have a central Phonebook.


Plenty of Information in the forum and the FAQ.
