When the Poly Edge B Series launched last year, it hit the sweet spot for service providers offering stylish design, plug and play provisioning and a packed set of features at a shockingly low price point. It’s no surprise that Poly’s partners have moved quickly to make these IP Desk Phones part of their lineups.
Today we’re excited to announce that Poly Edge B phones are now certified by five more leading cloud communications platforms: 8×8, Cisco BroadWorks, GoTo, Metaswitch and NetSapiens. These five platforms join the certification line up alongside Zoom Phone and Google Voice, proving this pure-value, low-cost phone is the ideal device for growing businesses.
The Edge B phone family has two and four-line key options and is targeted as an entry-level phone for small businesses and emerging markets; however, it also has many enterprise-based use cases. The Poly Edge B Series IP Phones’ design and functionality deliver the best-in-class features you’ve come to expect from Poly products, including Poly Acoustic Fence technology, Poly HD Voice and hardcore reliability so you can enjoy clear, uninterrupted conversations. Desk and wall mount options are included right out of the box so every customer can deploy the device with ease.
What it Means for Customers
Certification for Cisco BroadWorks, Metaswitch and NetSapiens in particular make it easier for UCaaS and VoIP service providers to streamline their testing and support of Poly Edge B phones. This is important because it also helps providers get the phones to market faster. Speaking of speed and efficiency, 8×8 customers can easily add Edge B phones to their service today by ordering directly through 8×8, while GoTo customers can add the Edge B to their GoTo Connect service.

Headsets To Complement Your Workstyle
The Poly Edge B Series can support a wide range of headset options using RJ9, EHS or 3.5mm jack connections. For those who prefer the reliability of a wired connection, add a Poly Blackwire 3320 and 5200 Series (using 3.5mm plug) or Poly EncorePro 500 and 700 Series headsets (using RJ-9) to your repertoire. For users who need mobility, the Poly Savi 7200 and 8200 Series headsets are a great choice as they can be used at greater distance by adding a APD-80 EHS cable. Lastly, a Poly Voyager Office Base with either a Voyager 4300 UC Series or a Voyager Focus 2 headset gives the ultimate flexibility to connect your computer and headset to a Poly Edge phone. No matter your workstyle, Poly has you covered.
