Corporate Directory

You can connect phones to a corporate directory server that supports the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), version 3.

After you set up the corporate directory on the phones, users can search for contacts in the directory, place calls to directory contacts, and save entries to the local contact directory on the phone.

Polycom phones support corporate directories that support server-side sorting and those that do not. For servers that do not support server-side sorting, sorting is performed on the phone.

Note: Polycom recommends using corporate directories that have server-side sorting for better performance. Consult your LDAP administrator when making any configuration changes for the corporate directory. For more information on LDAP attributes, see RFC 4510 - Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Technical Specification Road Map
