[FAQ] Improved Opensip Registration Fail-over Support

Traditionally we support multiple methods of failover.

 

A method described  => here <= is called Configure Fault Tolerance and can be used for all Phones but the document only describes this for SoundStations and the Trio.

 

A Discussion about this can be found => here <=

 

Since UC Software 5.5.2 the Polycom Trio supports up to three registrations which the Phone can failover once the main server goes down.

 

This can for example be used with a Cisco Call Manager as described => here <=

 

The method described below is not the same as in the Engineering Advisory 66546 aka the Configuring Optional Re-Registration on Failover Behavior => here <=

 

NOTE: This feature is currently only supported on Polycom Trio’s

 

The Failover to another server can take up to 30 Seconds and 60 Seconds to re-register to the original first server.

 

Configuration:
