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 previously covered in this article a centralized provisioning server can be deployed, or an existing deployment designed for other Polycom SIP phones can be leveraged by the Trio.

On the heels of the recent release of the Polycom Real Presence Trio 8800 comes the first firmware upgrades.

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.

Firmware acts as the foundation upon which your router runs.

This is somewhat permanent in that it can't be changed until a new firmware update replaces it.

If after inserting the USB drive the phone does not appear to recognize the firmware package and does not automatically prompt for the administrator password then an additional manual step may be required.

The affected models should now successfully recognize the firmware file and trigger the update process.

Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.

The computer world is growing fast and to keep up it becomes necessary to update your router firmware periodically.

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.
