Upgrading the B179 software

Use the following procedure to upgrade the B179 software to the latest version.


  1. From the web interface, select Settings > Provisioning.
  2. Click the Check now button.
  3. Compare the latest software version with the current version (shown on the web page).
  4. If you want to upgrade, select the desired version in the list box and click the Upgrade button.
    The browser window and the display on the Avaya B179 shows that the upgrade has begun.

    The download and installation of the new software can take several minutes. Do not interrupt the upgrade and do not disconnect plugs to the Avaya B179 during the upgrade. Doing so may render the conference phone inoperable.

  5. When installation is complete, the text “Upgrade Complete. The unit will be rebooted.” is shown in your browser.

    After a short while, you should hear the Avaya music signature that indicates the reinitiation of the conference phone.
