Suppose you have 1000 phones configured as “Polycom SoundPoint IP,” but they really should be “Polycom VVX.” To make this change manually, you’ll have to spend hours disconnecting the user from the device along with its Shared Call Appearance settings and any Custom Tags.
With Alpaca, you can change each device in a single command. Alpaca handles all the complex details of changing Device Types, ensuring that the transition is painless and your device inventory is kept intact, and the SIP phone works perfectly before and after the migration.
SIP Authentication credentials are the front lines of security. When changing from FTP or HTTP to HTTPS, or after a Fraud incident, Alpaca Authentication Reset takes the chore out of refreshing all your user’s SIP authentication credentials.
