Phone provisioning techniques

Recommended Posts

I use a variety of phones as extensions, and of course
I want to be able to use buttons and lamps as needed.

I can't find any complete document that shows how to
do this. For example:

 

> in general, what phone features / settings does SnomONE

support? How do you select and map specific features?

> how do you make a custom config file for a specific phone?
there are a few SNOM phone files, but no notes about how
to create your own file for any brand phone

> what is the file format for PnP? I think it's html, but

what is the internal format?
> how do you map a button to a function / feature?
for example, how do you determine the button's
internal number? What set of features is available?
> how do you config shared appearances; for example,

- a busy-lamp field [bLF]?
- shared line appearances?

> how do you use a smart screen such as several phones
from Grandstream, Panasonic, Yaelink and others have?
I assume there's an XML mapping scheme, but where? How
can you pass-through Internet/Web applications to the screen?

> how do you display a scrollable / searchable contact list, with
edit features at the phone?

 

I realize there are bits, pieces and hints in various places, but it
takes forever to glean this stuff. There should be a document. Dave

Actually my inquiry was very specific--but it
does cover several areas--all directly related
to SnomOne setup for phones. These answers
are very specific to SnomOne--they're not
available on the Internet.

 

I haven't found anything of value in the WIKI
with enough detail to be any help. Would you
please look at my post again and reply? Dave

Please check the inline...

we support many functions of PBX's out in the market today.

We support from hold, transfer,buttons, intercom, LDAP basically all the functionality the snom phone as to offer.

Please check http://wiki.snom.com

How do you select and map specific features?

> how do you make a custom config file for a specific phone?

Can you give us a example? What would like to custom on the snom phone?

there are a few SNOM phone files, but no notes about how
to create your own file for any brand phone

http://wiki.snomone.com/index.php?title=Modifying_Plug_and_Play_Files

Currently we only support snom phones for modification.

> what is the file format for PnP? I think it's html, but

what is the internal format?

XML Format .The files that the snom phones are looking are listed here

> how do you map a button to a function / feature?

Internal number??

What set of features is available?

Please check Button Types on this link.

http://www.snomone.com/documentation/buttons

how do you config shared appearances; for example,

- a busy-lamp field [bLF]?
- shared line appearances?

http://www.snomone.com/documentation/buttons

> how do you use a smart screen such as several phones

I assume there's an XML mapping scheme, but where? How
can you pass-through Internet/Web applications to the screen?

Currently we do plug and play with Yealink phones, Grandstream and Panasonic if possible will be next on the list.

Here is list of what support today.

> how do you display a scrollable / searchable contact list, with
edit features at the phone?

Searchable contact is support today it's called LDAP

You can enter your contacts in the domain address book these contact should show up when you press the directory button.

can be done per extension or on the domain level

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

 

What you say is that only Snom brand phones have
any support documents. It's not possible to configure
any other brand phones. Some other brands have
PnP, but no document explains what features or
buttons on those phones are enabled or work.

 

It's not clear how to setup contacts, address books

or screens on any but Snom brand phones either.

 

There's no way to create a customized config file,
because button and feature mapping isn't published.

 

For non-Snom brand phones, this is the only info
for all PnP customizations; there is nothing more:

Currently, plug and play is supported for some non-snom
phones under snomONE from v5x on.

 

Please tell me if I'm wrong about this. thanks, Dave
