The process can be used on phones connected to Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business 2015 Server, or Skype for Business Online environments.Additional releases in the same version will often include an letter revision code (e.g.* New Skype for Business themed user interface * New USB Optimized mode for Skype foe Business tethering scenarios * Multiple video stream support and new screen layouts for video and content viewing * Various improvements in calendaring, contact search, and conferencing management – New 8500 model introduced to Trio family – Device firmware delivered via USB connectivity to Windows PC from Windows Update – Several Skype for Business user experience enhancements including and updated UI – Support for registration to different Skype for Business and Exchange accounts – Web-Sign feature for Skype for Business Online accounts – Device Lock support added – Support for in-band Skype for Business media port ranges – Reverted to client-side phone number normalization by default – Support for receiving content via Video-Based Screen Sharing (VBSS) with Sf B – SILK audio codec can be manually enabled for use with Sf B calls – TLS 1.2 support added – The Polycom MSR USB camera can now be used with a Trio 8800 – Support added for Visual on the Trio 8500 (with only the Logitech C930e USB camera) – Apple Airplay discovery over Bluetooth added to Trio 8800 Also be aware that currently the firmware releases for Trio are not lock-step with the existing VVX releases, nor with the CX5500 releases.

In fact this is a very similar process to what the CX5100/5500 also supports for firmware upgrading.

(Note that while the some VVX desktop phone models do include a standard USB port they do not currently support this USB upgrade method.) While most any USB flash drive should work for this process it is recommended to use a USB 2.0 drive.

As covered in various other VVX articles this process is unchanged in the Trio.

The same steps listed at the beginning of this recent article can be used to upgrade the phone firmware if not already familiar with it.

If the Lync Base Profile is currently enabled on the Trio then the web management interface will be disabled by default.

This must first be re-enabled either manual from the phone or via a centralized provisioning configuration before the UI can be accessed remotely on the phone to perform the upgrade process.As stated because the Trio uses the same base UCS platform then the Trio will adhere to any existing DHCP, LLDP, or other network configuration parameters specific to the IP phones. The Microsoft native firmware update process that was added to Lync Server 2010 to support Lync Phone Edition devices has been supported by Polycom VVX phones for over two years now, as of the initial 5.0 firmware release.Both Lync Server and Skype for Business Server platforms include this in-band firmware updating service and leveraging this capability is inherently available in the Trio as well.Most downloads are applicable to certain products or systems running specific software versions only and should not be installed on products or versions to which the user does not have license.Many of these downloads require the purchase of a product and an existing license, after installation, in order to be used.In the same fashion as previous articles on this blog covering various Lync and Skype for Business devices like the VVX desktop phones or the CX5500 Round Table camera this article outlines the various ways that the Trio 8800 can be upgraded.
