Pairing smartphones enables users to answer incoming calls from supported Edge E desk phone models and enjoy the phone’s advanced noise blocking features. Easy troubleshooting and access to ongoing support ensures that today’s hybrid workforce isn’t left to solve issues by themselves. The entire Edge E series offers new diagnostic tests and a configurable support contacts menu, making it simple for users to self-test their phone or contact support as needed.
“We’re excited to expand our long-time partnership with Poly and continue to deliver solutions that provide flexibility and choice to our joint customers,” said Albert Kooiman, Senior Director of Microsoft Teams Devices Partner Engineering and Certification. “Users can sign-in to Teams and confidently take their calls with a consistent, reliable experience, with support worldwide.”

With Zoom Phone certification, companies can easily deploy, manage and use Poly smart devices for maximum productivity outcomes.”
Poly solutions for Microsoft Teams and Zoom feature NoiseBlockAI technology, which blocks out distracting background noise (e.g., keyboard typing, paper shuffling, plastic bag rustling sounds), and Acoustic Fence technology which creates a sound barrier to focus on the speaker, and not the noise. Additional innovations like near-field communication (NFC) technology can be leveraged to simplify the office hoteling experience and new diagnostic tests – not to mention a configurable support contacts menu that makes troubleshooting a breeze.
