To automatically configure phones, Server Configuration – Device Provisioning must be set up. Just plug in a supported phone to the VOIP network or VLAN that sipXcom resides on and sipXcom will automatically configure the phone.

Polycom phones will self configure when plugged into the sipXcom system network. The Cisco Discovery Protocol is used. The phone will initially configure with an unique extension ID displayed on the phone such as W9B. The new phone will be listed with the unique ID in the description under Devices, Phones. At this point, you can add lines to this phone, save and send profiles. The phone will re-boot and display the lines added. Please also see
