The Savi 8200 Office series has a noise canceling microphone and also has an added feature called "close conversation limiting" which allows you to further reduce unwanted background noise callers would otherwise hear. The Plantronics Hub is required in order to adjust this feature.
If you're using a computer softphone, not all softphones have the feature built in where you can answer/end calls away from the phone from the headset.
If the softphone is compatible, most likely you will also need the Plantronics Hub downloaded in order for the remote call answering feature to work on your headset.
