Polycom VVX 500 IP Business Media Phone
The Polycom VVX 500 multimedia IP phone is a 12 SIP line IP phone with HD Voice that is Open Source to work with most SIP PBX's and 3rd party UC platforms. It will handle up to 12 SIP registrations and features a 3.5in TFT color capacitive touch screen that reacts to gestures, similar to how most mobile phone interfaces work today. The VVX 500 has 2 USB 2.0 ports for media and storage applications which allow you to use the display on the phone for multiple uses such as built in web applications, digital photo frame, news, sports, weather, or even as an extension of your PC desktop.
Polycom VVX 500 Overview
Designed for a broad range of environments from small and medium businesses to large enterprises, the VVX 500 performance business media phone improves productivity, by complimenting the workplace applications on the user’s computer. Users benefit from such capabilities as viewing and managing their Exchange calendars and contacts on the phone and receive meeting reminders while still having access to their corporate directory—and all while waiting for their PCs to boot. Users can also extend their PC desktop to include the VVX 500 phone’s screen, enabling simplified interactions and dialing using their PC’s mouse and keyboard. Training and multipoint communication applications are complemented by the VVX 500 video playback capability for streaming content.

Questions on Polycom VVX 500
Q: Can I use the Polycom VVX 500 with MagicJack?
A: No IP Phone will not work with Magic Jack. However Polycom SoundStation 2 is tested and know to be working with Magic Jack.
Q: Does running the Ethernet through the VVX500 degrade the performance of the workstation since it first goes through the phone? Our IT person stated we would need to have a separate line for the workstations to achieve satisfactory performance. This would lead us away from a change to this type of phone.
A: My workstation goes through my phone and I have no issues with it
Q: Can I use a bluetooth headset with this?
A: The data sheet does not mention bluetooth.

Good Product for the price
Excellent phone with great features. Very Impressed!!
We purchased the VVX 500 and the VVX 600 to compare/contrast. We have also tested several other VOIP/SIP handsets. The sound quality, handset and speakerphone of the Polycom VVX 500 cannot be beat. the speakerphone is particularly outstanding - ful duplex and very clear both ways. Very little difference between the 500 and 600, just screen size.
Love my new phone
Compact size, easy to use, great audio quality.
