Polycom VVX phones can be configured to provide ring audio to the headset jack instead of the speaker. The Algo 2506 module detects the low-level audio from the headset jack and provides an isolated signal to activate an 8128 SIP Strobe Light, 8180SIP Audio Alerter or 8188 SIP Ceiling Speaker directly instead of using SIP. Only one Algo alerting device (8128, 8180 or 8188) can be connected directly to the 2506 Polycom Ring Detector at a time. However, any of the four devices can relay a signal to additional devices via the relay output connections on the back or via multicast.
This provides a solution for those Skype For Business users with Polycom phones in noisy locations.
