Before you use your OBi Edition phone, take a few moments to familiarize yourself with its features and user interface.

The terms “the phone” and “your phone” refer to any of the OBi Edition VVX business IP phones. Unless specifically noted in this guide, all phone models operate in similar ways.

As you read this guide, keep in mind that certain features are configurable by your system administrator or determined by your network environment. As a result, some features may not be enabled or may operate differently on your phone. Additionally, the examples and graphics in this guide may not directly reflect what is displayed or is available on your phone screen.

The OBi Edition phones share the same functionalities with all other Polycom business IP phones:

Support for all standard SIP-based IP PBX and ITSPs/VSPs.

Suited for all service provider and enterprise deployment environments, regardless of size.

Ideal for self-service installations. Home users, small business owners, or corporate IT departments can easily install, set up, and manage these phones.

Seamless integration with popular softswitch architectures

Cloud management enabled via with both a user portal and an ITSP partner portal with an optional REST API.


An area available only to service providers, the ITSP portal may also be used by service providers for phone provisioning, management, and troubleshooting. The OBiTALK ITSP portal can be used independently as the sole system for secure management of OBi Edition phones or in conjunction with an existing centralized provisioning system managed by the service provider.


By design, all OBi edition phones are capable of remote management by a service provider. You can update your firmware remotely to provide new features and services. You can update phone configuration to handle user requests and service enhancements. You can remotely monitor your phones for troubleshooting and routine health check-ups.

This document describes the technologies and methods to manage these phones remotely and to securely provision your phones at a massive scale. A complete listing of a vailable configuration parameters on the phone is given at the end o f this document.
