Daisy-Chaining Poly Trio C60 Systems

You can pair (daisy-chain) a Poly Trio C60 system with up to two other Poly Trio C60 systems for enhanced audio performance in large or acoustically challenging rooms.

When you daisy-chain Poly Trio systems, the speakers and microphones act as a single speaker and microphone array for superior acoustic performance.

Note: You can’t pair or daisy-chain a Poly Trio C60 system with Poly Trio 8500 or 8800 systems or with a Poly Trio C60 system connected to your network using Wi-Fi.

Daisy-Chaining Requirements

When daisy-chaining Poly Trio C60 systems, you must adhere to some requirements for optimal performance.

You can daisy-chain up to three Poly Trio C60 systems for audio-only calls when you meet the following requirements:

  • Pair a maximum of three Poly Trio systems.
  • Connect the systems to the same IP network.
  • Connect the systems to the same network subnet.
  • Enable multicast for the network.
  • Update all daisy-chained Poly Trio systems to the same software version.
  • Configure Poly Trio systems to the same Base Profile.
  • When signing in to Office 365 or Skype for Business Online from a Poly Trio system daisy-chained to another Poly Trio system, use the following guidelines:
    • Do not enter a domain. Leave the Domain field blank.
    • Complete the Username field with an FQDN, for example, user@domain.com.

Daisy-Chain Poly Trio Systems

You can daisy-chain up to three Trio C60 systems for audio-only calls. You must configure one Trio C60 system as the hub and the other systems as devices.

Procedure

  1. On the Poly Trio system you want to set as the hub, go to Settings > Advanced > Networked Devices and set Networked Device Role to Hub.
  2. On the systems you want to set as a device, go to Settings > Advanced > Networked Devices and set Networked Device Role to Device.
    The systems you set as a device reboot.
  3. After the device systems reboot, on the hub system, go to Settings > Advanced > Networked Devices and under Available Devices, select a device system.
  4. Select Pair and wait for the devices to connect.
  5. Optional: If you want to daisy-chain another system, repeat the pairing process on the second device system.
When you daisy-chain two or more Poly Trio systems, all the systems display the user interface on the hub system.
