PROVISIONING YOUR MAX IP PHONE
There are two methods available for configuring your MAX IP phone:
•
The first method is manually, through the phone's keypad and a web portal associated with the phone.
•
The second method provisions the phone automatically when it is plugged into the network. This method
uses a DHCP server to assign the phone minimal IP information so that it can access the network, including an IP address, gateway, subnet mask, and TFTP server address. A TFTP server is then used to automatically upload firmware (when new firmware is available) and provisioning information to the phone, so
that it is ready to make a call after it has completed the booting sequence.
By default, the MAX IP is configured for automatic provisioning and assumes the IT administrator has correctly
configured the DHCP and TFTP servers on the phone network. When more than a few phones are to be
provisioned, it is recommended that you use the automatic method, otherwise the manual method is the best.
CONFIGURING THE IP ADDRESS
Before any other provisioning can be done, you must first configure the host IP address and the subnet mask
of the MAX IP phone. These must be known in order to provision the phone through the web interface. These
settings are usually obtained automatically from the DHCP server, however, they can also be assigned manually if the host IP address is to be a static IP address.
CONFIGURING THE DHCP SERVER
When configuring a DHCP server for use with the MAX IP phone, the following parameters should be
assigned:
•
IP address
•
Subnet mask
•
Gateway IP address
•
TFTP server IP address
•
DNS server IP address
•
Secondary DNS server IP address
•
DNS domain
The IP address and subnet masks are defined by DHCP option 1.
The Gateway IP address is defined by DHCP option 3.
The TFTP server is defined first by DHCP option 66. If this is undefined, then the MAX IP examines the siaddr
parameter in the DHCP ACK packet. If this is not defined, then the hostname parameter in the DHCP ACK
packet is used.
The DNS server IP address is defined by DHCP option 6.
The secondary DNS server IP address is defined by DHCP option 6.
The DNS domain is defined by DHCP option 15.

Technical Services: 800.283.5936
MANUALLY ASSIGNING AN IP ADDRESS
If DHCP is disabled, or you wish to assign a static IP address, then perform the following steps:
1. Press and hold the REDIAL/PROG key until the program icon appears on the LCD screen (see figure 2.3).
FIGURE 2.3 MAX IP LCD Program icon
>
Note: If a key is not pressed within 30 seconds of entering program mode, the MAX IP phone will beep
and return to operation mode.
2. Press the 2 key. The default IP address is displayed on the LCD screen. If this address was obtained from
DHCP, then you can use it to access the web interface. If you cannot access the web interface using this
address, then you need to either configure DHCP as explained above so that the IP address can be
obtained automatically, or you must manually enter a static IP address. Continue with step 3 to manually
enter a static IP address for the MAX IP phone.
3. Press the 1 key. The current DHCP setting is displayed on the LCD screen. A “1” indicates that DHCP
mode is enabled; a “0” indicates that DHCP mode is disabled.
4. If “0” is the current setting, then continue with step 8, otherwise continue with step 5.
5. Press the REDIAL/PROG key. The current DHCP mode “1” flashes on the LCD screen.
6. Press the 0 key. The new DHCP mode “0” flashes on the LCD screen.
7. Press the REDIAL/PROG key. DHCP mode is disabled.
8. Press the 2 key. The current IP address (such as 0.0.0.0) is displayed on the LCD screen.
9. Press the REDIAL/PROG key. The current IP address flashes on the LCD screen.
10. Press the CLEAR key. The current IP address is deleted one character at a time.
11. Using the number keys, enter the static IP address. Use the * key to enter the decimal separators in the IP
address.
12. Press the REDIAL/PROG key. The new static IP address is activated in the MAX IP phone.
13. Press the 3 key and repeat steps 9-12 above to set the subnet mask, then continue with step 14.
14. Press the REDIAL/PROG key. The MAX IP phone reboots.
MANUALLY PROVISIONING YOUR MAX IP PHONE
The easiest way to manually provision your MAX IP phone is through the web interface. To access the web
interface for your MAX IP phone, perform the following steps:
1. Press and hold the REDIAL/PROG key until the program icon appears on the LCD screen (see figure 2.3).
2. Press the 2 key. The phone’s IP address is displayed on the LCD screen.
3. Make note of the IP address and press the CLEAR key. Program mode is exited.
4. Start Internet Explorer (only the Internet Explorer web browser, release 6.0 or later with Java 1.5 or later
installed, works with the MAX IP phone).
5. Enter the phone’s IP address into the Internet Explorer address field and press the ENTER key on your
computer’s keyboard. (You can also enter the DNS name or the phone’s name on the network in order to
get to the web interface login screen.)

Note: After VLAN is enabled, you will not be able to access the MAX IP phone through the web portal
unless your PC has access to the VLAN you just configured. To regain access to the web portal, you
will have to disable LAN (see To Enable/Disable VLAN on page 32).
QoS (Quality of Service): QoS is implemented on the MAX IP using DSCP (differentiated service code point).
The DSCP is a selector for a router’s per-hop behaviors. Each group of DSCPs (or class) has the same
precedence value, from 0 to 7, with the default precedence value for MAX IP being 5. Select the preferred
precedence value from the drop-down menu; advanced users can also enter a custom DSCP value in the
text field.
Click the Apply button to activate any changes made to the Network Settings screen.
CONFIGURATION: SIP CONFIGURATION SCREEN
Use the Configuration: SIP Configuration screen (see figure 2.11) to configure the SIP (session initiation
protocol) settings for your MAX IP phone. SIP is a text-based protocol that is based on HTTP and MIME, which
makes it suitable and very flexible for integrated voice-data applications. SIP relies on the session description
protocol (SDP) for session description and the real-time transport protocol (RTP) for actual
transport.

Technical Services: 800.283.5936
•
Enable Authentication: Click this check box to enable authentication or uncheck it to disable
authentication. (Authentication is required if the proxy requires it.) Authentication verifies the username and
password as entered in the Authorization user and Authorization password fields. These fields are active only
when authentication is enabled and can thus be modified. When authentication is disabled, these fields
are inactive.
•
Enable SIP Proxy registration: Click this check box to enable SIP proxy registration or uncheck it to disable
it. SIP proxy registration is the connection to the SIP proxy server in a SIP-based IP telephony environment
that handles call control and serves as the central repository for address translation (name to IP address).
When SIP proxy registration is enabled, the Proxy server IP address/URL and Proxy port fields are active. Enter
the required IP address/URL of the SIP proxy server and the number of the SIP proxy port. When SIP proxy
registration is disabled, these fields are inactive.
•
Enable Outbound proxy: Click this check box to enable the outbound proxy server or uncheck it to disable
it. The outbound proxy is the IP address to use for outbound calls if the address is different from the
registration address. When enabled, the Outbound proxy server IP address/URL and Outbound proxy port fields are
active. Enter the required IP address/URL of the outbound proxy server and the number of the outbound
proxy port. When disabled, these fields are inactive.
•
SIP Transport: Click the radio button next to the type of SIP transport you wish to use and the number of
the listen port in the Listen port field for the specified transport. UDP (user datagram protocol) is a protocol
within the TCP/IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP (transmission control protocol) when a reliable
delivery is not required. UDP requires less processing of packets and is connectionless, meaning it does
not require a handshake to start a session like TCP does. Therefore, it is faster and is often used with VoIP
because there is no time to retransmit erroneous or dropped packets. The default port is 5060.
•
Enable in Band DTMF Relay: Click the check box to enable in band DTMF (dual tone multi-frequency)
relay or uncheck the box to disable it. In band DTMF relay allows dialing information to be sent for
gateways that need to receive standard audio. DTMF relay provides a way to transport DTMF digits in an
RTP voice stream when the voice codec cannot accurately reproduce the digits, or the sender or receiver
DSP (digital signal processor) cannot perform digit sampling. Each DTMF digit is encoded as an
RTP-named event and sent as RTP packets over UDP. The packets are encoded with a payload type which
is negotiated during connection establishment. When enabled, the Payload field is active. Enter the
desired payload: values range from 96 to 127. When Enable in Band DTMF Relay is disabled, this field is
inactive.
•
Registration timeout: Enter the value (in seconds) your phone is to refresh its registration to the SIP proxy
server. The default value is 3600.
Click the Apply button to activate any changes made to the SIP Configuration screen.

Use the Configuration: Audio Settings screen (see figure 2.12) to configure the voice activation detection
settings and to prioritize your preferred audio codecs.
FIGURE 2.12 Configuration: Audio Settings screen
•
Enable VAD: Click the check box to enable VAD (voice activity detection) or uncheck the box to disable it
(VAD is enabled by default). Voice activity detection is a software application that allows a data network
carrying voice traffic over the internet to detect the absence of audio and conserve bandwidth by
preventing the transmission of “silent packets” over the network. VAD can also be used to forward idle
noise characteristics to a remote IP telephone so that the listener will not think the line has gone dead
when the speaker is not actively speaking.When VAD is enabled, VAD Noise Matching is active. When VAD is
disabled, the audio sends a constant stream of audio data, even when there is silence.
If VAD is enabled and the active audio codec is G.723.1 or G.729A/B, silence (SID) packets will be sent
when silence is detected according to the description in standards G.723.1 and G.729 Appendix B,
respectively.
If VAD is enabled, G.711 is the active codec, and VAD Noise Matching is set to NONE, no audio is sent
and no silence packets are sent when silence is detected.
If VAD is enabled, G.711 is the active codec, and VAD Noise Matching is set to LEVEL, single-byte CNG
packets are sent with the current noise volume level when silence is detected.
If VAD is enabled, G.711 is the active codec, and VAD Noise Matching is set to G711A2, CNG packets are
formatted according to G.711 Appendix II standard and the VAD LP Noise Order corresponds to the M
coefficient in the Linear Prediction synthesis filter when silence is detected.
•
VAD Noise Matching: Click the radio button for the type of VAD noise matching you prefer. VAD noise
matching is the dB level of comfort noise that is transmitted that equals the floor noise in order to ensure
that the receiver does not think the phone has hung up when no speaking is happening. You must also
enter the VAD Noise LP Order you prefer. VAD noise matching is enabled by default and LP order values
range from 1 to 10, with 5 being the default.
•
Preferred Audio Codecs: Order the audio codecs in the sequence you prefer, from most preferred to least
preferred. Select the codec you wish to move and then Use the Up and Down buttons to move it up/down
the list. Repeat this for each codec you wish to re-order.
Click the Apply button to activate any changes made to the Audio Settings screen.

AUTOMATICALLY PROVISIONING YOUR MAX IP PHONE
As mentioned previously, if you have multiple units that you want to provision with the same settings, the
quickest and most seamless way of accomplishing this is through automatic provisioning.
In fact, your MAX IP phone is factory-configured to automatically provision by downloading the appropriate
configuration files from a TFTP server defined by DHCP on bootup. The settings contained in the configuration
file override the default settings stored in the MAX IP phone.
Several configuration files are required to automatically provision the MAX IP phone. These configuration files
include:
•
Firmware files
•
Phone Settings file
•
Phone-specific file
•
Dial Plan file
FIRMWARE FILES
When new firmware is released, it is delivered with two files: config.fil and ggsip_all. The config.fil file contains
date and version information, while the ggsip_all file contains the compressed firmware image. When a MAX IP
phone is plugged into the network, the config.fil file is downloaded via TFTP. If the date and version are
different from what is stored on the phone, the ggsip_all file is then downloaded. After the new firmware has
loaded, the MAX IP reboots and the new firmware becomes active once the reboot completes.
PHONE SETTINGS AND PHONE-SPECIFIC FILES
Two phone configuration files are used to provision the MAX IP phone: the phone settings file and phone-specific file. The phone settings file contains general settings used by all MAX IP phones on a network. This file
MUST be named C1MAXIP.txt.
The phone-specific file contains phone-specific settings. This file must be named
C1MAXIP_MACAddress.txt, where the MAC address is the hardware Ethernet MAC address found on the
label on the back of the phone's base unit.
Although all of the phone settings can be defined in one of these two files, the general settings found in the
phone settings file will be overridden by the settings in the phone-specific file when the MAX IP phone boots.
To leave a setting as is, do not include it in the file; only address those items that are changing.
You can edit the files using a general text editor, such as “vi” or “Notepad.” A sample C1MAXIP.txt file,
containing configuration settings, is shown in figure 2.17.
>
Note: Although the phone settings configuration file appears to be well-formed XML, it MUST adhere to
the formatting as defined in the example. Parameter settings CANNOT be spread across multiple lines. For
example:
Valid:
<username> admin </username>
Invalid: <username>
admin
</username>

</C1DIALPLAN>
FIGURE 2.18 Sample dial plan configuration file
>
Note: All tokens associated with SYSCONFIG and DIGITMAP must appear on separate single lines in the
actual configuration file.
Dial Plan Configuration File Tokens
The following tokens are used for configuring the dial plan configuration file.
The SYSCONFIG token defines timer configuration and termination digit parameters.
The DIALTIME token defines the total time in milliseconds allowed to enter the dialed digits before the phone
will play a re-order tone.
The FIRST_DIGIT_WAIT token defines the time in milliseconds the phone will wait after going off-hook to
enter the first digit before the a re-order tone is played.
The INTER_DIGIT_WAIT token defines the time in milliseconds the phone will wait after the first digit is
entered before a re-order tone is played or the number is dialed.
The TERMINATION_DIGIT token defines the termination digit to be entered if the maximum number of digits
have not yet been entered and the number is to be dialed before the INTER_DIGIT_WAIT timer is expired.
The DIGITMAP token defines the mapping of collected digits to an outbound SIP URI.
The MATCH token defines the digits which MUST be matched when the user begins entering digits for the
DIGITMAP rule to take effect.
The MIN_DIGITS token defines the minimum number of digits which MUST be entered once that match rule
has been invoked. This number must be greater than or equal to the number of digits in the MATCH string.
The MAX_DIGITS token defines the maximum number of digits which MAY be entered after the match rule
has been invoked. The completion of the number can be achieved when the maximum number of digits have
been entered or the TERMINATION_DIGIT is pressed. The MAX_DIGITS parameter MUST be greater than
or equal to the MIN_DIGITS parameter.
The STRIP_FIRST_DIGITS parameter defines the number of digits that will be stripped from the beginning
of the complete dial string before it is passed to the underlying stack to be dialed. For example, if the user
entered 1234 and STRIP_FIRST_DIGITS was set to 2, the string passed to the underlying stack for dialing
would be 34.
The ADD_PREFIX_AFTER_STRIP token defines a set of prefix characters that are to be applied to the
beginning of the dial string AFTER the STRIP_FIRST_DIGITS rule has been applied. Adding to the previous
example, if the ADD_PREFIX_AFTER_STRIP were set to "56" and the user entered 1234, the string passed to
the underlying stack would be 5634.
The DIAL_STRING token defines the address which will be dialed when a number satisfying the MATCH rule is
entered.
The characters "+&" define a wild card, consisting of the digits in the number dialed. In the example shown
above, when any four-digit number that was dialed is entered, it is passed to the stack as "<four-digit
number>@sipgateway.com".
>
30
Note: Although the wild card parameter is defined in the MATCH string and in the DIAL_STRING, it
assumes that the rules applied for STRIP_FIRST_DIGITS and ADD_PREFIX_AFTER_STRIP still take
effect before the entered number replaces the wild card in the DIAL_STRING.
