Provisional Polling of Polycom Phones

You can configure phones to poll the server for provisioning updates automatically, and you can set the phone's automatic provisioning behavior to one of the following:
  • Absolute—The phone polls at the same time every day.
  • Relative—The phone polls every x seconds, where x is a number greater than 3600.
  • Random—The phone polls randomly based on a set time interval.
    • If the time period is less than or equal to one day, the first poll is at a random time between when the phone starts up and the polling period. Afterwards, the phone polls every x seconds.
    • If you set the polling period to be greater than one day with the period rounded up to the nearest day, the phone polls on a random day based on the phone's MAC address and within a random time set by the start and end polling time.
