6. General Test Approach and Test Results
The feature test cases were performed manually. Calls were manually established between
Polycom SoundStation IP 6000 and/or 7000 with the Avaya H.323, Avaya Digital, or PSTN
endpoints, and call controls such as hold and conference were performed from the Polycom
SoundStation IP 6000 and/or 7000.
The serviceability test cases were performed manually by disconnecting and reconnecting the
LAN cables to the Polycom SoundStation IP 6000 and 7000.
All test cases were executed.
The following are the observations from the compliance testing:
 When the LAN cable is disconnected from an active Polycom SoundStation IP 6000 for
more than 30 seconds and then reconnected, the SoundStation IP 6000 becomes inoperable
until a manual reboot is performed.
 Avaya IP Office can successfully activate Do Not Disturb, but sends back 503 Service
Unavailable for the activation request.
