Does a D60 need another VVX phone ?

I have not been able to find much information on the VVX D60 and how its provisioned.

 

Some docs say that it has to be paired with another VVX phone.

 

                Is that only for provisioning, or does this mean that a D60 is useless without first purchasing a

                deskphone for every DECT handset ?

 

Thanks

Hello shahed100,

 

The Polycom D60 has not yet been officially released to my knowledge so all material will be available after the official launch.

 

You will need a compatible VVX phone to run the D60 base station of it.

Hi,

 

 how is the D60 deployment the other way round?

 

 Do i need an individual base station per connected vvx phone or can one basestation serve mutiple VVX phones running one D60 handset per user?

 

 cheers

Hello Udo,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The VVX phone itself is the "master" and the D60 Base Station is the "slave"

 

Only one VVX can connect to a D60 at the time.

Hello Steffen,

 

thanks for the fast reponse.

 

Ressource- and budget-wise this is not the answer i'd hoped for. i was thinking along the line of a DECT basestation that can be deployed to handle multiple users at the same time. Maybe this is something for product management....

 

Nevertheless your reply fully answers my question.

 

Kind regards

Udo

Udo,

You can pair multiple DECT handsets to one base station and then on the host VVX phone you can map particular lines to each registered handset. It does not give you multiple basestations but if your users are in the same general area it may meet your needs.

Hello Udo,

Maybe I miss understood your question but was your question related to registering different lines to the Handset?

 

You can register lines to handset's that do not appear on the "Master" VVX. So if this is the case have a look => here <=
