Manual Provisioning Methods

Polycom provides per-phone, manual provisioning methods to register Polycom devices with Skype for Business.

All manual provisioning methods set the Base Profile of a phone to Skype. The Base Profile is a feature on each Polycom phone that, when set to Skype, automatically provisions the phone with the default parameters required to work with Skype for Business.

When you use configuration files to provision the phones with Skype for Business, the phone Base Profile stays set to Generic. You do not need to set the Base Profile to Skype when provisioning with configuration files.
