What is a Polycom VVX - Lync edition?
The Lync Edition VVX phone comes bundled with the required Polycom UCS Lync license. This license benefits of the same device discount as the VVX phone. When a separate UCS Lync license is purchased this has a lower discount because it is seen as an accessory.
Benefit: Ordering is simplified. One order code for both the VVX phone and the required Polycom Lync software license
The Microsoft Lync Edition VVX phone comes preconfigured to the “Lync” base profile setting as the default instead of “Generic” (OpenSIP).
Benefit: Ready to install in Lync environments
The VVX Lync Edition phone ships from the factory with a “Microsoft Qualified” Polycom UCS software release.
Benefit: No need to downgrade to a different Polycom UCS release to be a Microsoft supported release
