Customer Question

We have a Polycom Soundstation 2W which beeps every few days. We need to stop this happening as it disturbs a meeting. The system is working perfectly otherwise. Thanks

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Would disabling the beeps altogether be acceptable, for this phone?

If so:

Search for the following text in sip.cfg


and replace it with


Upload the new sip.cfg file and reboot the phone.

I am not sure how to access this file on the Polycom
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

The software associated with Polycom phones is called



UCS Software. It is installed on whatever machine the phones are ultimately connected to - probably the Windows Server machine.

The configuration file would be located in the


folder in all likelihood.

This page tells about such configuration files:

Annoyingly, Polycom does not identify your model clearly as a this-or-that type of phone, not even in 'technical specs'.

How does yours connect? via a cable to a computer, via a network cable, or is it wireless entirely except power cord?

This is not really what I need as I just wanted to address the one unit rather than the system. I have made some chages to the actual phone settings so will see what happens. Thanks for your response

But, if you read that material, you would find mentioned, the MAC ID or machnie ID #. When put into the file, it applies the settings in the file to only the one machine with that unique Machine ID.

But I hope you find that your changes to settings make the difference.

Thanks. I do not have access to the system itself. I will see what happens over the next few days.
