Product Overview

Polycom UC software manages the protocol stack, the digital signal processor (DSP), the user interface, and the network interaction on Polycom phones.

You can deploy Polycom UC software by configuring individual phones, but Polycom recommends setting up a provisioning server on your LAN or the internet for large-scale deployments.

UC software implements the following functions and features on the phones:
  • VoIP signaling for a wide range of voice and video telephony functions using SIP signaling for call setup and control.
  • SIP and H.323 signaling for video telephony. Support for H.323 varies by phone model.
  • Industry-standard security techniques for ensuring that all provisioning, signaling, and media transactions are robustly authenticated and encrypted.
  • Advanced audio signal processing for handset, headset, and speakerphone communications using a wide range of audio codecs.
  • Flexible provisioning methods to support single phone, small business, and large multi-site enterprise deployments.
