Soundpoint and Lync

Is there a plan to make the Soundpoint phones (331, 450, 550) compatible with Microsoft Lync?

 

I understand that Polycom has Lync Optimized phones, but we are looking for standard SIP and Lync compatible phones so we are not locked down to just Lync in the future.

 

Thanks

Hello Vitaliy,

 

welcome to the Polycom Community.

 

The upcoming UCS 4.0.1 release will bring basic LYNC support to around 15 different current Polycom SoundPoint/SoundStation phones.

 

Once released I will post this here and the model's supported.

 

Best Regards

Hello Vitaliy,

 

according to the forecast it should be days not weeks.

 

This is still subject to final approval so keep your eye on the Forum for the announcement.
