BroadSoft Features
The following sections describe BroadSoft features added for this release.
Private Hold on Shared Lines
Private Hold is an Open SIP feature available for BroadSoft customers. Private Hold enables users to
privately hold calls on shared lines. Typically, when a user holds a call on a shared line, the other users of
the shared line are notified of the call’s status and can resume the held call. When Private Hold is
enabled, users can hold a call, transfer a call, or initiate a conference call, and the call’s status displays
as busy on the other users’ phones instead of as on hold, and the other users cannot resume the call.
Administrators can enable Private Hold using configuration files only. The parameter
call.shared.exposeAutoHolds is an existing parameter updated for private hold and
reg.X.enablePVTHoldSoftKey is a new parameter for this feature.
BroadWorks Enhanced Call Park
BroadWorks Enhanced Call Park feature includes audio and visual notifications that inform users when a
call is parked on their line (private or shared) or a line they monitor. Users can park calls using a star code
that includes a contact’s extension from any phone on the network. This feature enhances user
experience by providing mechanism to retrieve a parked call without need to remember star code.
Administrators can configure BroadWorks Call Park using configuration files only. The following
parameters allow configuration of this feature.
Polycom, Inc.

parked against a shared line. For example, for the shared line 8544a, you can set the line address
to 8544.
BroadSoft UC-One Call Control Features
BroadSoft UC-One is an advanced unified communications solution that provides a number of advanced
call control features that can be configured by users. Users are able to configure the behavior of the
following features directly on the phone:
● Anonymous Call Rejection
● Simultaneous Ring Personal
● Line ID Delivery Blocking
● BroadWorks Anywhere
● Remote Office
Anonymous Call Rejection
Anonymous Call Rejection (ACR) is a feature available on the BroadWorks server that enables users to
automatically reject incoming calls from anonymous parties who have restricted their caller identification.
When enabled, the Anonymous Call Rejection settings menu displays on the phone and users can enable
or disable the feature.
Administrators can enable the ACR menu option to display on the phone using configuration files or the
Web Configuration Utility. The parameter
feature.broadsoft.xsi.AnonymousCalReject.enabled is a new parameter for this feature.
Simultaneous Ring Personal
Simultaneous Ring Personal is a feature available on the BroadWorks server that enables a user to add
phone numbers to a list of contacts whose phones ring simultaneously when the user receives an
incoming call. When enabled, the Simultaneous Ring settings menu displays on the phone and users can
enable or disable the feature. Users can also add phone numbers to a list of simultaneous ring personal
contacts and edit them, if necessary.
Administrators can enable the Simultaneous Ring Personal menu option to display on the phone using

phone number when calling contacts. When enabled, the Hide Number settings menu displays on the
phone and users can enable or disable the feature.
Administrators can enable the menu option to display using configuration parameters or the Web
Configuration Utility. The parameter feature.broadsoft.xsi.LineIdblock.enabled is a new
parameter for this feature.
BroadWorks Anywhere
BroadWorks Anywhere (BWA) is a feature available on the BroadWorks server that enables users to use
one phone number to receive calls to and dial out from their desk phone, mobile phone, or home office
phone. Users can move calls between phones and perform phone functions from any phone. When
enabled, the BroadWorks Anywhere settings menu displays on the phone and users can enable the
feature. They can add BWA locations, edit them, and remove them from the phone. Users can add up to
10 numbers as BWA locations for each registered line.
Administrators can enable the menu option to display on the phone using configuration files or the Web
Configuration Utility. The parameter feature.broadsoft.xsi.BroadWorksAnywhere.enabled is
a new parameter for this feature.
Remote Office
Remote Office is a feature available on the BroadWorks server that enables a user to set up a phone
number on their office phone to forward incoming calls to a mobile device or home office number. Users
can answer incoming calls to the office phone on the assigned remote phone, and any calls you place
from that phone show as your office phone number. When enabled, the Remote Office settings menu
displays on the phone and users can enable or disable the feature and add or edit the remote number.
Administrators can enable the menu option to display on the phone using configuration files or the Web
Configuration Utility. The parameter feature.broadsoft.xsi.RemoteOffice.enabled is a new
parameter for this feature.

BroadWorks XSP credentials on the phone instead of in the configuration files. This feature is
automatically available when the phone is registered to a R18 or R19 server and at least one UC-One
feature is enabled. These credentials are used for BroadSoft Enterprise directory searches.
To enable Xtended Services Platform Login Credentials, configure these parameters:
● Set dir.broadsoft.useXspCredentials to 1. This specifies that the BroadSoft server version
is prior to R19 SP1.
● Set feature.broadsoftUcOne.enabled to 1. This enables all of the UC-One features.
When this feature not enabled, the administrator must enter the credentials using these existing
parameters:

Lync Features
The following sections describe Lync features added for this release.
BToE with Audio Playback
Audio Playback Mode is a feature available on the Lync server that enables users to use their VVX phone
to play audio from Lync calls and media on their computer. Users can answer Lync audio or video calls in
the Lync client, and the audio plays on the phone. Users can also play audio from media, such as music
or web videos, on the phone.
Audio Playback is automatically enabled when the phone’s base profile is set to Lync.
Lync Voice Conference Calls with Centralized Conference Control
Protocol (CCCP) Support
Users can initiate Lync conference calls, manage conference participants, view a detailed list of
participants in the roster, enable announcements, lock a conference, and manage up to 24 conference
calls. This feature also enables users to add up to 200 Lync contacts to a conference call, start a
conference with a group, and invite participants to the conference.
This feature is enabled automatically when the phone’s base profile is set to Lync.
Lync Exchange Web Service
The Exchange Web Service (EWS) feature is a Lync Server feature that enables setup of visual
voicemail, call log synchronization, Outlook ® contact search, and Lync Address Book Service (ABS)
adaptive search. Each of these features is enabled by default on phones registered with Lync Server.
This feature also enables the administrator to retrieve an exchange server URL address automatically or
manually.
The visual voicemail aspect of the EWS feature enables users to view individual voicemail messages,
play individual messages, and dial contacts from the Voicemail screen. The call log synchronization
aspect of the feature automatically syncs Lync calls on users’ phones, Lync clients, and Outlook, and
enables users to view call logs on all three platforms. The Outlook contact search enables users to
search for Outlook contacts on their phone while Lync ABS enables users to search for Lync contacts on
their phone.
This feature is enabled automatically when the phone’s base profile is set to Lync.
Safe Transfer for Lync Boss-Admin
Safe Transfer is an added functionality for the Lync Boss-Admin feature that enables delegates to transfer
a delegation call to the boss’s line. If the transferred call is not answered on the boss’s phone, the
delegate is notified that the call wasn’t answered and the call remains on the delegate’s phone instead of
Polycom, Inc.

Release Notes for Polycom UC Software 5.3.0
Version 5.3.0
being sent to voicemail. The safe transfer feature is available for delegates only. The soft key Safe XTran
was added for this feature.
This feature is enabled automatically when the phone’s base profile is set to Lync.
Lync Boss-Admin is supported on Lync Server 2010 and Lync Server 2013; however, a separate
deployment procedure is necessary for setting up the feature for Lync Server 2010. See the section
“Configure Lync Boss-Admin for Lync Server 2010” in the Deployment Guide for Polycom UC Software
with Microsoft Lync.
Music on Hold
Music on Hold is a Lync Server feature that enables music to play when users place contacts on hold.
However, there is a limitation for this feature where only the first call placed on hold hears the hold music;
any additional held calls do not hear music.
Administrators can store music files in .wav format on the provisioning server and specify which files the
phone plays when an active call is placed on hold.
VVX phones support the following .wav file formats:
● mono G.711 (8 bits/sample, 8-khz sample rate)
● mono L16/16000 (16 bits/sample, 16-kHz sample rate)
● mono L16/48000 (16 bits/sample, 48-kHz sample rate)
Administrators can enable the feature using configuration files. The parameters feature.moh.enabled
and feature.moh.filename are new parameters for this feature.
Open SIP Features
The following sections describe Open SIP features added for this release.
Unique Line Labels for Multiple Line Key Registrations
Administrators can assign a line registration to multiple line keys, and assign a unique line label for each
line key. The parameter up.cfgUniqueLabel is a new parameter that determines the label that
displays on the line key.
If you configure the line to display on multiple line keys without a unique label assigned to each line, the
lines are labeled automatically in numeric order. For example, if you have line 4144 labeled as Polycom
and assigned to four line keys, the line keys are labeled as 1_Polycom, 2_ Polycom, 3_ Polycom, and 4_
Polycom. For a line without a label, the line keys are automatically labeled using the line’s address, for
example, 1_4144, 2_4144, 3_4144, and 4_4144.
Administrators can also enable automatic alignment for line labels on the phone. The parameter
up.cfgLabelElide is a new parameter that controls the alignment of the line label. When the line label
is an alphanumeric or alphabetic string, the label aligns right. When the line label is a numeric string, the
label aligns left.

Release Notes for Polycom UC Software 5.3.0
Version 5.3.0
USB Port Lock
For VVX 500, 600, and 1500 phones, administrators can choose to lock the USB ports on the phones by
disabling headset ports or turning off USB ports. Administrators can lock the single port on VVX 1500
phones, or choose to disable both of the two ports available on VVX 500 and 600 phones. Disabling USB
ports prevents users from using the call recording, picture frame, USB headset, VVX camera (VVX 500
and 600 only), and USB charging (VVX 600 only) features.
Administrators can lock the USB ports using configuration files. The parameters
feature.usb1.power.enabled and feature.usb2.power.enabled are new parameters for this
feature.
Voice Quality Monitoring
The Voice Quality Monitoring (VQMon) feature enables VVX phones to use Real Time Transport Control
Protocol Extended Report (RTCP XR) to report voice quality metrics to remote endpoints. This feature
complies with RFC 6035. This feature also enables administrators to control over which address and
ports the voice quality proxy server uses. New configuration parameter were added to determine whether
a re-registration to the SIP server should happen when the voice quality monitoring server fails over.
Administrators can enable this feature using configuration files. See the section Configuration File
Enhancements for a list of parameters for this feature.
User-Controlled Software Updates
This feature provides the following capabilities:
● A simple and easy upgrade and downgrade solution that is backward and forward compatible,
which enables users to update to a later or earlier version
● A seamless solution for pushing software updates to all users
● An efficient way to upgrade a large number of phones in low bandwidth environments
● Users with control to update their phone with the latest software and configuration changes or
postpone the updates for a later time.
Administrators can enable this feature using configuration files. The parameters
prov.usercontrol.enabled and prov.usercontrol.postponeTime are new parameters for
this feature.
Call Forwarding on Shared Lines
The call forwarding on shared lines feature allows users to forward all incoming calls on shared lines to a
contact. Call forwarding on shared lines is a server-based feature.
Users can choose to always forward calls by pressing the Forward soft key from the idle screen and
choosing Always, which forwards all incoming calls, as the forwarding option. The other forwarding
option are not available for shared lines.
Administrators must enable this feature using configuration files. The following parameters are required to

Install UC Software 5.3.0
Consider the following information when installing Polycom UC Software 5.3.0.
Caution: Updating VVX 1500 to UC Software 5.3.0
Before updating your VVX 1500 phone to UC Software 5.3.0, make sure that the phone is
upgraded to BootBlock 3.0.4. See Technical Bulletin 695: Upgrading the Polycom VVX 1500
Business Media Phone to UC Software 5.2.0 for more information.
Download the Distribution Files
To download UC Software 5.3.0, you can choose the combined UC Software package or the split UC
Software package, both in ZIP file format. The combined version contains all files for all phone models.
The split software package is smaller, downloads more quickly, and contains sip.ld files for each phone
model, enabling you to choose provisioning software for your phone model and maintain software
versions for each model in the same root directory.
For general use, Polycom recommends using the split resource file that corresponds to the phone models
for your deployment. To match the correct UC software resource file to your phone model, see the table
Understand the Combined ZIP and Split ZIP Files. If you are provisioning your phones centrally using
configuration files, download the corresponding resource file and extract the configuration files to the
provisioning server, maintaining the folder hierarchy in the ZIP file.
The current build ID for the sip.ld and resource files is UC Software 5.3.0.12074.
