Lens Relay

📄️ Lens Relay Overview

Poly Lens Relay is simply a device that runs within a customer network that facilitates a simplified cloud-based communication path with a device or group of devices. A relay is deployed and configured to be a configuration/provisioning proxy for supported Poly endpoints. Explicitly configuring the provisioning URL on each device or leveraging a combination of DNS and DHCP option 66, a relay instance is inserted into the path of the well-established series of endpoint-requests towards cloud-based interactions. A relay device provides a local software cache from which endpoints will pull their firmware images, as well as a communication funnel-point for provisioning, software downloads, and the screen capture feature for ground-to-cloud interactions. Device IoT connections still go direct to the cloud over the internet.
