Connecting to Skype for Business on Your Phone using Better Together over Ethernet

Better Together over Ethernet (BToE) with Skype for Business on VVX phones enables you to communicate with Skype for Business contacts using your Skype for Business client while providing you with quality audio through your VVX phone.

BToE also enables you to control Skype for Business audio and video call activity from your VVX phone and your computer using your Skype for Business client. You can also use BToE to sign in to your phone using your Skype for Business credentials.

When BToE is enabled and the video-enabled phone is paired to the Skype for Business client on your computer, the preference for transmitting and receiving video streams is given to Skype for Business client. The preference is given to VVX phones only when the phone unpairs with the Skype for Business client. You can place all Skype for Business related-calls from VVX phones as audio-only irrespective of the call mode selected on the phone. However, users can choose to enable video from the paired Skype for Business client.

In order to use BToE, you need to download and install the Polycom BToE Connector application.
