Polycom® VVX™ 1500 C
Business media phone for Cisco®
Unified Communications Manager (SIP)
The first business media phone for Cisco UC environments combining advanced IP
telephony, one-touch video and business applications into a seamless, life-like experience
The Polycom VVX 1500 C unifies voice, video and applications capabilities
into a simple-to-use business media phone. With its unique touch screen
interface, the VVX 1500 C makes video calls as simple as using a phone.
Its large display and ease of use make the VVX 1500 C an ideal all-in-one
productivity tool for today’s busy executives and professionals, whether they
are in office, retail, professional services or healthcare environments.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager support
The Polycom VVX 1500 C registers directly to Cisco Unified
Communications Manager as a SIP device and works just like a standard IP
phone when making calls. To place a call to another phone or video device,
just dial the number or extension. If another video device is detected the
call is automatically escalated to video and the participants will be able to
see as well as hear one another. The VVX 1500 C can communicate with
most video devices including Cisco UC video clients and standards based
H.323 video endpoints when connected via a gatekeeper. Multipoint calls
between two or more video clients are supported via the Cisco Unified
Videoconferencing solution.
Feature-rich phone with Polycom HD Voice™
The Polycom VVX 1500 C is equipped with all of the capabilities you expect
in an industry leading IP phone including: six lines, Polycom HD Voice, a
Gigabit Ethernet switch that supports PoE and a host of rich telephony
functions. These features can be accessed via the buttons on the front of the
phone or by simply touching the large colour display.
One-touch personal video system
The Polycom VVX 1500 C includes an integrated camera and delivers
business-grade video calling with a simple touch of the screen. The
phone has multiple adjustable elements including camera tilt, base height
and screen angle to suit the environment and a user’s preferences for
personalised eye-to-eye visual communications.
Business information at a glance
The Polycom VVX 1500 C features an open API and microbrowser that
enable third-party applications developers to integrate the VVX 1500 C with
business applications such as unified communications, customer relationship
management (CRM) and appointment management systems. The touchscreen user interface of the VVX 1500 C includes a menu screen on which
developers can place icons for users to touch and launch their applications.
