Configuring Cisco Unified
Communications Manager
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phone, managed by Cisco Unified Communications
Manager, is designed to be used like a regular phone on a public switched
telephone network (PSTN).
This chapter provides basic instructions for setting up Cisco Unified
Communications Manager.
Changing Cisco Unified Communications Manager
The following settings must be verified or adjusted before connecting the
Polycom VVX 1500 C phone to Cisco Unified Communications Manager:
•
Location settings should allow for video bandwidth.
•
Region settings should allow for a minimum of 384k video bandwidth.
•
Region settings should allow for an audio codec of G.722 for the best audio
experience.
•
Each Polycom VVX 1500 C phone requires six Device License Units.
•
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phone should be added to a device pool in
which the Media Resource Group List does not contain MTP resources.
Due to the nature of out-of-band DTMF signalling, Cisco Unified
Communications Manager will sometimes insert Media Termination
Point Resources (MTP) in a call. This will prevent video on the Polycom
VVX 1500 C from operating correctly. This is most common on H.323 and
SIP trunk calls. To prevent this from occurring, the MTP resources should
be removed from any Media Resource Groups and Media Resource Group
Lists that would be used in the trunked calls.

Setting Up the Polycom VVX 1500 C
Phone
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phone is designed to be used like a regular phone
on a public switched telephone network (PSTN). It is a business media phone
that combines advanced business telephony, one-touch video, real-time
presence, and integrated business applications into one seamless, lifelike
communications experience.
The phone provides a powerful, yet flexible IP communications solution,
delivering excellent video and voice quality. The high-resolution color graphic
display supplies content for call information, multiple languages, directory
access, and system status. The phone supports advanced functionality,
including multiple call and flexible line appearances, HTTPS secure
provisioning, custom ring tones, and local audio and video conferencing.
For the package parts list and instructions on how to assemble the phone, refer
to the Polycom VVX 1500 Quick Start Guide, which is in the phone package.
This chapter provides basic instructions for setting up the Polycom VVX 1500
C phones when managed by Cisco® Unified Communications Manager:
•
First you must change the network information that is currently on the
phone. Refer to Changing the Network Configuration on page 3-3.
•
Upgrade the phone software before changing the configuration files and
deploying the phones.
Out of the box, the Polycom VVX 1500 C phone is running bootROM 4.2.1
and SIP software 3.2.2. As of this release, the SIP software and BootROM
are actually distributed as a single package. To determine the bootROM
version running on the phone, press the Menu key, select Settings >
Status > Platform > Phone, and then scroll down to BootROM. To
determine the UC Software version running on the phone, press the Menu
key, and then select Settings > Status > Platform > Application > Main.
Refer to Upgrading the Phone’s Software on page 3-16.

Deployment Guide for the Polycom VVX 1500 C Business Media Phone
•
If you choose to manage your phones through a provisioning server, you
need to:
— Set up a provisioning server and download the appropriate files. Refer
to Setting Up the Provisioning Server on page 3-5.
— Decide which features you want enabled and which you want
disabled. Refer to Configuring Your System on page 3-6.
— Create configuration files to support the required features on the
phones. Refer to Deploying Phones From the Provisioning Server on
page 3-12.
•
If you choose to manage a group of phones through a Polycom®
Converged Management Application™ (CMA™) system, you need to:
— Ensure that the phone is running the correct version to allow
provisioning by a Polycom CMA system.
The VVX 1500 D phone must be running UC software 3.3.0 or later. If
the phone is not running this software version, refer to Upgrading the
Phone’s Software on page 3-16.
— Ensure that the Polycom CMA system is running version 5.0 or later.
For more information on upgrading the Polycom CMA system, refer
to the Polycom CMA v5.0 Upgrade Guide, which is available at
http://www.polycom.com/support/network/management_schedu
ling/cma_4000_5000.html .
— Change the phone’s configuration to use the Polycom CMA system for
provisioning. Refer to Enabling Provisioning Using a Polycom CMA
System on page 3-18.
Once the VVX 1500 C phone is provisioned by a Polycom CMA
system, future phone software upgrades are managed by the Polycom
CMA system as well.
Note
You can also set up the VVX 1500 C phone in a “hybrid” system where the VVX
1500 phones can be provisioned by both a Polycom CMA system and a
provisioning server. In this scenario, you should review the configuration
parameters mentioned in Configuring Your System on page 3-6.
•
3-2
If you do not want to use a provisioning server, you can change some of
the phone’s configuration through a web interface. Refer to Modifying
Phone’s Configuration Using the Web Interface on page B-1.
Setting Up the Polycom VVX 1500 C Phone
For installation and maintenance of the Polycom VVX 1500 C phone, the use of a
provisioning server is strongly recommended. This allows for flexibility in installing,
upgrading, maintaining, and configuring the phone. Configuration, log, and directory
files are normally located on this server. Allowing the phone write access to the
server is encouraged.
The phone is designed such that, if it cannot locate a provisioning server when it
boots up, it will operate with internally saved parameters. This is useful for
occasions when the provisioning server is not available, but is not intended to be
used for long-term operation of the phones.
Because of the large number of optional installations and configurations that
are available, this chapter focuses on one particular way that the UC Software
and the required external systems might initially be installed and configured
in your network.
For more information on configuring the Polycom VVX 1500 C phone, refer to
the latest Administrator’s Guide for the Polycom UC Software, which is available
at
http://www.polycom.com/support/voice/business_media_phones/vvx150
0c.html .
Changing the Network Configuration
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phone requires several options to be set at boot time
in order to automatically pull its configuration files from an FTP server.
Alternatively, DHCP option 66 (or a DHCP option above 128) may be used to
instruct the phone where to get its configuration and application files. The
default username and password for the phone is PlcmSpIp. These defaults can
be changed in the boot menu of the phone. Any username/password change
on the phone should also be made on the FTP server.
All of the required options may be set by DHCP or manually on the phone
itself. With these options set, the phone will boot and automatically configure
itself to access the FTP server and upload the appropriate configuration files.
The following options are available to configure the phone via DHCP:
•
Required Options
— Option 3 Router. The standard default router (most DHCP servers will
already have this value).

0 = Auto (default), 1 = 10HD, 2 = 10FD, 3 = 100HD, 4 = 100FD, or 5 = 1000FD. The
PC port can also be disabled (-1). Polycom recommends that you do not change
these values.
Setting Up the Provisioning Server
The protocol that will be used to transfer files from the provisioning server
depends on several factors including the phone model and whether the
BootROM or UC Software stage of provisioning is in progress. By default, the
phones are shipped with FTP enabled as the provisioning protocol.
You can use any computer on the network as the provisioning server
(providing the application image and configuration files for the Polycom VVX
1500 C phone).
For organizational purposes, configuring a separate log file directory, override
directory, contact directory, and license directory is recommended, but not
required. The different directories can have different access permissions. For
example, for LOG, CONTACTS, and OVERRIDES, allow full access (read and
write) and for all others, read-only access.
Note
The instructions below are written using FTP server as the provisioning server, but
they also apply to any TFTP or HTTP server.
Note
The factory default username and password for the phone is PlcmSpIp.
3-5
Deployment Guide for the Polycom VVX 1500 C Business Media Phone
To set up the provisioning server:
1. Create a directory to store the application image and the configuration
files.
For example, C:\test\VVX1500 .
2. Extract all files from the distribution zip file to the newly created
directory.
Maintain the same folder hierarchy.
The distribution zip file contains many files, but only the following are
required:
— 2345-17960-001.sip.ld
— 000000000000.cfg
— SoundPointIPWelcome.wav
Refer to the Polycom UC Software Release Notes for a detailed description of
each file in the distribution. The Release Notes can be found at
http://www.polycom.com/support/voice/business_media_phones/vv
x1500c.html .
3. Start the FTP server and configure it to accept requests from the phone.
In the FTP server software on a computer, create a unique user with names
and passwords. For example, username user with password password.
Refer to your server documentation to set up the server.
Configuring Your System
After you set up your Polycom VVX 1500 C phones on the network, you can
allow users to place and answer calls using the default configuration,
however, you may require some basic changes to optimize your system for
best results.
This section provides information for making configuration changes for:

Polycom CMA Provisioning
To troubleshoot any problems with your Polycom VVX 1500 C phones on the
network, refer to Troubleshooting the Polycom VVX 1500 C Phone on page
4-1.
Local Digit Map
The phone has a local digit map feature to automate the setup phase of
number-only calls. When properly configured, this feature eliminates the need
for using the Dial or Send soft key when making outgoing calls. As soon as a
digit pattern matching the digit map is found, the call setup process will
complete automatically. Digit maps do not apply to on-hook dialing.
For more information digit maps, refer to “Technical Bulletin 11572: Changes
to Local Digit Maps on Polycom VVX 1500 C Phones“ at
http://www.polycom.com/support/voice/soundpoint_ip/VoIP_Technical
_Bulletins_pub.html .
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server
or locally. For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to
<dialmap/> on page A-4.
Call Transfer
Call transfer enables the user (party A) to move an existing call (party B) into
a new call between party B and another user (party C) selected by party A. The
phone offers three types of transfers:
•
Blind transfers—The call is transferred immediately to party C after party
A has finished dialing party C’s number. Party A does not hear ring-back.
•
Attended transfers—Party A dials party C’s number and hears ring-back
and decides to complete the transfer before party C answers. This option
can be disabled.
•
Consultative transfers—Party A dials party C’s number and talks
privately with party C after the call is answered, and then completes the
transfer or hangs up.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server.
For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to <feature/> on
page A-4.
3-7
Deployment Guide for the Polycom VVX 1500 C Business Media Phone
Call Log
The call log is stored in volatile memory and is maintained automatically by
the phone in three separate lists: Missed Calls, Received Calls and Placed
Calls. The call lists can be cleared manually by the user and will be erased
when the phone is restarted.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server.
For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to <feature/> on
page A-4.
Recording and Playback of Audio Calls
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phone has a functioning USB port that can be
configured to allow recording of audio calls on supported USB devices.
Note
Notify your users that they may be required by federal, state, and/or local laws to
notify some or all called parties when they are recording.
Playback of recorded files can occur on the phone as well as on other devices,
such as a Windows® or Apple® based computer using an application like
Windows Media Player® or Quicktime®.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server.
For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to <feature/> on
page A-4.
Corporate Directory
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phones can be configured to interface with a
corporate directory server that supports the Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP) version 3. Both corporate directories that support server-side
sorting and those that do not are supported. In the latter case, the sorting is
performed on the phone.
The corporate directory LDAP server status can be reviewed through the
Status menu (Status > CD Server Status).
For detailed examples for all currently supported LDAP directories, refer to
“Technical Bulletin 41137: Best Practices When Using Corporate Directory on
Polycom VVX 1500 C Phones“ at
http://www.polycom.com/support/voice/soundpoint_ip/VoIP_Technical
_Bulletins_pub.html .
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server
or locally. For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to
<feature/> on page A-4.

Setting Up the Polycom VVX 1500 C Phone
Digital Picture Frame
A slide show of multiple personal images stored on a USB flash drive can be
displayed on the Polycom VVX 1500 C phone during the idle mode. The
supported formats include JPEG, BMP, and PNG. The maximum image size is
9999x9999. A maximum of 1000 images can be displayed and these must be
stored in a directory of the USB flash drive that you create.
Note
Although 9999x9999 images are supported, progressive/multiscan JPEG images
are not supported at this time no matter their resolution.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server.
For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to <feature/> on
page A-4 and <up/> on page A-8.
Server Redundancy
Server redundancy is often required in VoIP deployments to ensure continuity
of phone service for events where the call server needs to be taken offline for
maintenance, the server fails, or the connection between the phone and the
server fails.
Note
Your SIP server provider should be consulted for recommended methods of
configuring phones and servers for fail-over configuration. Static DNS cache should
only be used when you cannot install the correct entries into the DNS server.
The use of the static DNS cache is required when connecting into a Cisco Unified
Communications Manager system. This is because Cisco Unified Communications
Manager does not support simultaneous registrations from a single device to
multiple subscribers in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster. The
recommended DNS cache configuration would list two subscriber IP addresses,
then an SRST reference (if one is present). This causes the Polycom VVX 1500 C
phone to attempt registration to a single subscriber based on the order of the IP
Addresses listed in the DNS cache. If the first subscriber in the list is down, the
Polycom VVX 1500 C will try the second subscriber, and then third. If a subscriber
comes back online, the Polycom VVX 1500 C will attempt to re-register to that
subscriber.
For more information, refer to “Technical Bulletin 5844: SIP Server Fallback
Enhancements on Polycom VVX 1500 C Phones” at
http://www.polycom.com/support/voice/soundpoint_ip/VoIP_Technical
_Bulletins_pub.html .
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server.
For information on configuration file settings, refer to <dns/> on page A-5 and
<reg/> on page A-6.
3-9
Deployment Guide for the Polycom VVX 1500 C Business Media Phone
Voice Mail Integration
The phone is compatible with voice mail servers. The subscribe contact and
callback mode can be configured per user/registration on the phone. Voice
mail access can be configured to be through a single key press. A
message-waiting signal from a voice mail server triggers the message-waiting
indicator to flash and the call waiting audio tone is played through the active
audio path.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server
or locally. For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to
<msg/> on page A-7.
Shared Call Appearances
Calls and lines on multiple phones can be logically related to each other. A call
that is active on one phone will be presented visually to phones that share that
call appearance. Mutual exclusion features emulate traditional PBX or key
system privacy for shared calls. Incoming calls can be presented to multiple
phones simultaneously. Users at the different locations have the ability to
interrupt remote active calls.
This feature is dependent on support from a SIP server that binds the
appearances together logically and looks after the necessary state notifications
and performs an access control function.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server
or locally. For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to
<reg/> on page A-6.
H.323 Protocol
Telephony signaling support via the H.323 family of protocols enabling direct
communication with H.323 endpoints, gatekeepers, call and media servers,
and signaling gateways is supported on the Polycom VVX 1500 C phone.
SIP and H.323 signaling can be supported at the same time, including bridging
both types of calls during multi-party conference calls. Automatic detection of
the correct or optimal signaling protocol is available when dialing from the
contact or corporate directories. While SIP supports server redundancy and
several transport options, only a single configured H.323 gatekeeper address
per phone is supported. H.323 gatekeepers are optional, but if available, they
must be used. If a gatekeeper is not configured or unavailable, calls can still be
made if so configured.
Support of the SIP protocol for telephony signaling can be disabled on the
Polycom VVX 1500 C such that all calls would be routed via the H.323
protocol.

Setting Up the Polycom VVX 1500 C Phone
Note
Refer to the Polycom UC Software Release Notes for the latest list of supported
Polycom endpoints/bridges/call servers (or gatekeepers)/media servers and any
supported third party products. Any issues (and possible workarounds) with any of
the above-mentioned products are also documented in the Release Notes.
Configuration changes can be performed centrally at the provisioning server
or locally. For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to:
•
<voIpProt/> on page A-8
•
<up/> on page A-8
•
<video/> on page A-8
•
<call/> on page A-9
•
<sec/> on page A-9
•
<reg/> on page A-6
The following information should be noted:
•
If the phone has only the H.323 protocol enabled, it cannot be used to
answer SIP calls.
•
If the phone has only the SIP protocol enabled, it cannot be used to answer
H.323 calls.
•
If both SIP and H.323 protocols are disabled by mistake, the phone will
continue to work as a SIP-only phone; however, the phone is not
registered (you are able to send and receive SIP URL calls).
•
The protocol that is used to place a call is stored in the placed call list of the
user’s phone.
•
The protocol to be used when placing a call from the user’s local contact
directory is unspecified by default. The user can select SIP or H.323.
•
The protocol that is used when placing a call from the user’s corporate
directory depends on the order of the attributes in the corporate directory.
If only SIP_address is defined, then the SIP protocol is used. If only
H323_address is defined, then the H.323 protocol is used. If both are
defined, then the one that is defined first is used. For example, if
dir.corp.attribute.4.type is SIP_address and
dir.corp.attribute.5.type is H323_address, then the SIP protocol is
used.
•
By default, the user is presented with protocol routing choices when a call
could be placed with more than one protocol from its current context. The
user must choose between SIP and H.323 to place a call by pressing the
appropriate soft key.
3 - 11
Deployment Guide for the Polycom VVX 1500 C Business Media Phone
•
Calls made using H.323 cannot be forwarded or transferred.
— The Transfer and Forward soft keys are not displayed during an
H.323 call on a Polycom VVX 1500 C phone. The Forward soft key is
not displayed on the idle display of a Polycom VVX 1500 C phone if
the primary line is an H.323 line.
— If a Polycom VVX 1500 C user presses the Transfer soft key during an
H.323 call on a Polycom VVX 1500 C phone, no action is taken.
— The auto-divert field in the local contact directory entry is ignored
when a call is placed to that contact using H.323.
— If a conference host ends a three-way conference the call and one of the
party is connected by H.323, that party is not transferred to the other
party.
Polycom CMA Provisioning
Only one phone line associated with a Polycom CMA system can be
provisioned on a VVX 1500 C phone, but the line key associated with that line
is configurable. For detailed information on configuration file settings, refer to
<prov/> on page A-10.
Deploying Phones From the Provisioning Server
Warning
As of UC software 3.3.1, you only need to configure the parameters that do not
match their “built-in” defaults.
Certain configuration settings in Polycom UC Software 3.3.1 release are not
backward compatible to the previous configuration files (sip.cfg and phone1.cfg).
Review all configuration files used to configure the VVX 1500 C phones for previous

You can provision your organization’s Polycom VVX 1500 C phones and
update the software using a Polycom CMA system. Refer to the latest Release
Notes for Polycom UC Software and Polycom CMA for specific compatibility
requirements and recommendations.
You can also provision your organization’s VVX 1500 C phones in a hybrid
model, using both Polycom CMA and a provisioning server. In such a
situation, Polycom CMA has a higher priority. When the phone reboots, it will
check the Polycom CMA system first for new software, and then checks the
provisioning server for configuration files and directories to upload if directed
to do so (by setting the CMA mode to Disable, refer to Disabling Provisioning
by a Polycom CMA System on page 3-19).
Note
Polycom CMA requires that the management application be installed on the same
network as your VVX 1500 phones are connected.
In dynamic management mode, the Polycom CMA system can do the
following:
•
Configure VVX 1500 C phones using an automatic provisioning service
•
Register VVX 1500 C phones with a standard-based presence service, so

For detailed information on configuration parameters, including permitted
values, default values, types of parameters, and how phone-specific
parameters can be created, refer to “Configuration Parameters” in the
“Configuration Files” appendix of the latest Administrator’s Guide for the
Polycom UC Software.
<dialmap/>
A digit map is defined either by a “string” or by a list of strings. Each string in
the list is an alternative numbering scheme, specified either as a set of digits or
timers, or as an expression over which the gateway will attempt to find a
shortest possible match.
Edit the digit map according to your Cisco Unified Communications Manager
call routing. For example:
where:
Note
•
x equals any digit (for example, 3xxx means match anything starting with
3 and is 4 digits long). The x is case sensitive.
•
T refers to any standard number of digits according to the North American
Numbering Plan (NANP). The T is case sensitive.
•
R (not shown) indicates that certain matched strings are replaced. For
example, R9RRxxxxxxx means remove 9 at the beginning of the dialed
number. If a customer dials 914539400, the first 9 is removed when the call
is placed. For example, RR604Rxxxxxxx means prepend 604 to all 7 digit
numbers. If a customer dials 4539400, 604 is added to the front of the
number, so a call to 6044539400 is placed. The R is case sensitive.
A per-registration digit map is also supported.
<feature/>
The call list features are enabled by default as is the digital picture frame
feature. The call recording and corporate directory features are disabled by
default.
A-4
Configuration Files
Set feature.x.enabled to 1 for those features that you want enabled. For
example:
<dns/>
Edit the dns parameter according to your network. For example:
A-5
Deployment Guide for the Polycom VVX 1500 C Business Media Phone
<reg/>
The Polycom VVX 1500 C phone supports six registrations.
To set up registered lines, edit the reg parameter to reflect the changes you

example:
Note
Fields are defined as follows:
•
address is the assigned extension in Cisco Unified Communications Manager
(refer to Configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager on page 2-1)
•
auth.userId is the end user created for device in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager (case sensitive)
•
auth.password is the digest credentials from the user in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager (case sensitive)
•
server.1.address is the IP Address of first Cisco Unified Communications
Manager subscriber
•
label is the label that appears on the phone display’s line key
The “1” above indicates which line appearance is being configured. In this case, it is
the first.
If you want to use server failover, the name entered in the DNS cache—refer to
<dns/> on page A-5—should be entered in the reg.1.server.1.address field
instead of an IP Address.
A-6
Configuration Files
To add a shared line—a line shared with other phones—edit the reg
parameter. For example:
Edit the reg parameter as shown below (to reflect the registered H.323 lines
that you want to appear on the phone).
Note
