Yet in practice using the Lync Device Update service for VVX phone updates is identical to the process used by LPE devices.
So when working with a Lync Server already setup for LPE updates then adding VVX updates is as simple as importing and approving the new packages.
Now that the 5.0.1 maintenance release is available then this and all future releases can be handled natively by the Lync server.
The update behavior of the VVX phones is very similar to that of Lync Phone Edition, yet is even more flexible.
For LPE devices the update service is queried immediately after the initial registration and then again after a hard-coded period of time.
