Lens Integration

 

Lens has been integrated into UC Software for VVX phones starting with UCS 6.3.0. The release of UCS 6.4.0 will include the full documentation of Lens and any new enhancements. Lens is disabled as default and system administrators have the option of enabling it using:

Control Pausing Within a Speed Dial Destination

 

You can now insert a pause in a phone number. The dialing process pauses for a few seconds before dialing the next sequence of numbers in a phone number. Stacking these characters creates longer pauses. Insert a dial pause to bypass an automated phone menu or use pause characters to dial multiple phone numbers in one dial string. For example, create a dial string that dials a customer service number, pauses, then dials a specific extension that you frequently call.

 

Add a Pause in a Phone Number – Press the ‘*’ key on the dial-pad

You can then select the character defining the length of the pause. A ‘p’ - insert a 1-second pause or a  ‘,’ - insert a 2-second pause

 

Control Pausing Within a Speed Dial Destination

 

You can insert a (hard) pause character in a phone number so the phone displays a confirmation dialog to continue dialing the rest of the number. Adding a (hard) pause character pauses the call at the inserted point while dialing.

 

Procedure

  1. Start entering the phone number
  2. Insert a ‘;’ where you want a pause and notify in the dial string
  3. Enter the rest of the number.

For example, the string 18005551234,;5678 directs the phone to do the following:

  1. Dials 1-8-0-0-5-5-5-1-2-3-4 and pauses for 2 seconds
  2. Displays a dialog with the string 5678 and prompt you to continue dialing the number
  3. After you confirm, then dial 5-6-7-8

Specify an Outgoing Line to a Contact

 

You can now add an Outgoing Line to a contact’s directory information to specify the line to use for the contact. This ensures that you use the correct line for calls to this contact.

Note: If you place a call using the outgoing line in this way, any call on the line currently on hold is terminated, as the placed call takes over the line.

 Poly Computer audio Connector

 

The Poly Computer Audio Connector is an application that enables you to pair your Poly VVX phone with a Windows 10 computer.
The primary use case is for WFH users that need to enhance the quality of PC-based audio conferencing using the VVX phone’s HD Audio termination - similar to using a USB-based speakerphone.
The Poly Computer Audio Connector can be downloaded and installed with UCS 6.4.0. Unzip the downloaded file and select Poly Computer Audio Connector.msi.
Once installed and configured, you can then use VVX phones as a “speakerphone” similar to our existing SfB equivalent BToE.


No USB ports are required. The solution provides a secure method of transferring audio over Ethernet using a G.722 codec.
