Provisioning and Compatible Hosted PBX Handsets

What is VoIP Phone Provisioning?

Most phones that are SIP compatible can work to some level with our system. However, if a phone cannot be provisioned with our service then we can only assist in a limited role in their configuration for any deployment and cannot accept any liability for any problems arising from their use. We take no responsibility for externally sourced hardware via third-party suppliers and cannot guarantee successful deployment and continued usage with the VoiceHost platform.

Provisioning is a FREE service for all SIP phones purchased from our VoIP store: https://store.voicehost.co.uk


How to auto-provision to the platform:
To auto-provision a device onto the VoiceHost Hosted PBX simply login to your account and select 'provisioning' from the menu and follow the simple instructions.

Auto-provisionable phones purchased from the VoiceHost VoIP Store already have this information pre-populated.

CISCO & LINKSYS SPA PROVISIONING

This URL goes in the web configuration of the phone (menu button -> option 9 -> current IP will give you the current IP address of the phone, pop this into a web browser's address bar to load the web configuration of the phone).

Navigate to Admin Login -> Advanced -> Provisioning tab and locate the section called "Profile Rule".

Remove any existing entries in this text box, and input the URL above, if you copy and paste it be careful not to have any trailing spaces.

Above the Profile Rule section, there are Resync Delay values and a Resync Periodic value, change these to 1 second (our script will re-write these with correct values), click Submit All Changes, and the phone will restart. Changing the values makes the phone immediately talk to our provisioning service, rather than waiting for 10-20 minutes, to fetch the settings.

The phone should then communicate immediately with our provisioning service, it may go through a series of firmware updates, when completed it should be ready for use.


SNOM PROVISIONING

Navigate via the phone HTTP login to Advanced -> Update -> Setting URL in the web configuration:

Set "Subscribe Config" to "yes", save and reboot the phone, this should then communicate immediately with our provisioning service to take the settings required.
