Polycom VVX & Trio Time Zone Location Description

I was working on a Polycom VVX configuration file recently and it took me a while to find where the timezone cities were defined: all I had was a mysterious integer.

I found them in the PDF “3725-49078-018a-uc-software-skype-for-business-deployment-guide-5-6-0.pdf” but for future reference I decided to copy and re-post them here.

From the PDF: “The following two parameters configure a time zone location description for their associated GMT offset”

  • device.sntp.gmtOffsetcityID
  • tcpIpApp.sntp.gmtOffsetcityID

Here’s one in context (with Sydney showing in this example):

<device device.sntp.gmtOffsetcityID="113" device.sntp.gmtOffsetcityID.set="1" />

Out by One

There is however a slight problem here – probably several. First is that my adopted hometown and Brisbane don’t share the same time-zone, but more importantly the list in the PDF differs from what the phone reports by one – the phone starts with Eniwetok,Kwajalein as entry 1, however the PDF lists these small islands in the Pacific as per the list below.

Sydney-BrisbaneTimezone NoTimezone-0

You’ll also note that the XML snippet above (from my own provisioning server & config file) shows Sydney as 113, but the phone reports it as 114.

*Disregard* the number in the phone – the PDF is correct & aligns with the cfg file. I expect this will be corrected for in a future update. [Note the f/w version being referenced here is 5.6.0.17325].

BTW, to view the current Time Zone in the phone, the shortcut is Settings / 1-Basic / 1-Preferences / 3-Time and Date / 4-Time Zone.
