Microbrowser and Web Browser

The web browser and a microbrowser, also known as the idle browser, include a Server Name Indication add-on allowing multiple secure websites to use the same IP address to support the Polycom phone browser. This allows a server to present multiple certificates on the same IP address and TCP port.

The following phones support the web browser and idle browser:
  • VVX 250, 350, and 450 business IP phones
  • VVX 3xx, 4xx, 5xx, 6xx, and 1500 business media phones
Note that the exact functions and performance of the microbrowser and web browser vary by phone model.

For more information on creating applications for the phones, see the Polycom Web Application Developer's Guide at Polycom UC Software Support Center.

Note: The browser restarts in the following situations:
  • The browser uses over 30MB of memory.
  • The amount of free memory on the phone is below 6MB.
  • The real time is between 1am to 5am.

After the browser restarts, the last displayed web page is restored.
