Have 2 lines registered on VVX 450 and want calls to default to Line 2 if Line 1 unavailable.

I have a VVX 450 and have line 1 registered to my primary provider, and if I dial a PSTN number, the call defaults out Line 1 which is fine and how I want it to work. I have line 2 configured to an local on site gateway and want the call to default out line 2 if line becomes unavailable (unregistered or the like).  Is that possible so users do not have to first manually press the Line 2 button?

Hello @ScottOkun ,

 

Welcome to the Poly Community.

This is not possible to my personal knowledge. I am unsure if your VVX is running the ObiEdition or UC Software either.


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

Re: Have 2 lines registered on VVX 450 and want calls to default to Line 2 if Line 1 unavailable.

We are using the UC Software.  So no way to make it default to another line if the primary is disconnected.  Two other questions:

 

  • Is there a parameter that will make a BLF key ring, and if so what will do that?
  • If the BLF is ringing, is there a way to be able to push the BLF key and have it answer the phone?  (Currently when you press the key, it automatically provides the pickup code, but doesn't populate the extension, so you have to manually dial the extension then push send.  Can this be configured to just push the button?)

Hello @ScottOkun ,

 

Welcome back to the Poly Community.

Both the communities Must Read First and the FAQ reference the basic minimum information a new or follow up post should contain.

This ensures the questions having to be asked are limited and any new or follow up post contains the right amount of details to ensure any voluntary participant within the community does not spend additional time chasing basic information.

As a reminder the basic information asked for:

  • Provide the exact Software Version of your Phone
  • Provide the Phone Model
  • Provide the Call Platform (aka openSIP,Teams, Skype for Business Online, Skype for Business on Premise, Lync, Zoom, BlueJeans and/or Hybrid Registration)
  • Provide details if UC / SIP or ObiEdition
  • Additional Poly Infrastructure (RPRM,PDMS or BToE)
  • If applicable provide a backup of the phone in question

UC Software 4.0.0 or later via the Web Interface Utilities > Phone Backup & Restore > Phone Backup > Phone Backup. Please rename into .TXT or Zip the file to attach.
Since UC Software 5.9.0 simply provide this via the Web Interface Diagnostics > Download Support Information Package

  • If possible provide a Log and either attach them or use the Code Tag.Consult the Troubleshooting Section found within the FAQ if applicable
  • If possible provide the MAC Address or Serial of the device
  • Provide details for example if the issue is a day 1 issue or only happened after an upgrade or any other relevant details
  • For questions around Support please check here

Whilst providing some of these details may not directly impact any possible answer the community can provide, it does enable Poly to have an overview of the current software used. In addition, providing all details at the same time allows us to check logs or look up potential support partners if an issue needs to come into support. It also enables us to verify the entitlement for using features.


Please ensure you always check the FAQ's and/or utilize the community search before posting any new topics or follow up posts.

 

Nov 4, 2011 Question: How can I setup a Busy Lamp Field / BLF with an Digium Asterisk SIP Server?

Resolution: Please check => here <=

 

If the above is not sufficient or you are still not able to set this up other users can comment and the next step would be a support ticket.

 

In order to raise a support ticket, you need to work with your Poly reseller as they may need to do this for you.

End Customers are usually unable to open a ticket directly with Poly support. Available End User Poly services offerings are detailed here

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter providing your MAC address or your Poly devices serial will enable us to look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Poly device from.

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