  • A Poly or Yealink device is generally configured to re-provision without requiring the device to reboot, which is the default configuration. Depending on the changed settings, the device may need to be restarted.
  • Visit the Poly or Yealink support site to see the firewall rules for zero-touch deployment.

If your phone does not support zero-touch provisioning, you must:

  1. The phone needs to be factory reset and firmware updated. If you are using Poly or Yealink, follow the instructions.
  2. The phone’s web interface can be accessed and provisioning configured. For Polycom or Yealink assisted deployment instructions, click here.


Once the deployment process is complete, Poly and Yealink phones will automatically download the latest firmware versions. For Poly and Yealink devices, provisioning will complete automatically without rebooting. Depending on the settings changes, a device restart may be required.
