One thing you could try to see if it's phone related vs. network related would be to take one of the phones and plug it into a different network and see if you have the same issues. Then report your findings in your case so they can note it.<br /><br />Another thing to try would be to go back to the previous firmware (your support agent can help you with this) and see if that makes a difference. This helps us to narrow down if it's firmware related or not. 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7729846/replies/19503909 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7729846/replies/19503894 19503909 Brian B. responded to "VVX 5.6.0 update call quality lower after firmware update..

Call Quality is good.<br /><br />There is a noticeable difference in quality between the g722 codec and opus codec and there should not be, as everywhere I have referenced says that OPUS is a much better codec if configured correctly.&nbsp; I could swear that I read somewhere that if OPUS is configured correctly it should also display HD on the polycom phone screen.<br /><br />I mean don't get me wrong the calls are still better then using the g711 codec but how can we go from fantastic call quality to just good call quality?
