Important: Do not connect the base station to the local network (LAN) until you have completed Step 4. Provisioning cannot be initiated automatically if the base station is connected before then.
Note: If LDAP is set up and selected, the provisioning process copies the PBX telephone book (also called a "directory") to the template in all the handsets.
When installing DECT base stations, the following must be taken into account:
Always mount base stations on interior walls for radio coverage within the building.
The optimum mounting height of a base station is between 1.8 and 3 m, depending on the room height. If you mount the base stations lower, interference from furniture or moving objects may occur. A minimum distance of 0.50 m from the ceiling should be maintained.
It is recommended that all base stations be mounted at the same height.
Do not mount the base station in false ceilings, cupboards or other enclosed fixtures. Depending on the materials used, this can significantly reduce radio coverage.
The base station should be mounted vertically.
The location and orientation of the installed base station should be identical to the position considered optimal for measurement.
Avoid the immediate vicinity of cable ducts, metal cabinets and other large metal parts. These can reduce radiation and introduce interference signals. You should keep a minimum distance of 50 cm.
You need a firmware version 7.8A or newer AND a DECT base firmware 2.26.0 or higher to uses this
In Firmware versions prior to 7.8A the priovisioning file do not contain the necessary information to
enable distincgge ringing.
Starting with version 7.8A-000 the file contains information, but the information is disabled by default to
avoid errors and warnings while provisioning a WS500x base with a firmware version older than V2.26.0.
To enable this feature you have to:
You can now store your new configuration file. This will automatically trigger the provisioning
After successfull provisioning, you have to re-register all of your handsets . Only now the new
ringtone settings are shown in the menu of the handset. You can have to manually choose your
favorite ringtone for each calltype on every device.
