The Gateway can host up to 10 SIP clients such as IP Phones, or smart phones with SIP client software.
Here we will show the settings needed to use IP phones with your Gateway.
There are alot of IP phones that you can purchase, in this scenario we are using the T41P from Yealink.
Configuring the Phone
First ensure the phone is connected to the same Lan as the SMC Gateway, and using any browser connect to the IP address of the phone. There will usually be a default in your phones manual, or in our case we can read the needed information from the screen of the phone in the status page. Our phone tells us that the IP address that has been assigned by DHCP is 192.168.100.96, so browsing to this page we can enter the default user name and password of admin & admin.
The first page you will see is the status screen below.
You need to setup the SIP settings to connect to the Gateway’s internal SIP server. Go to the “Account” tab at the top.
We need to set the following:
- “Line Active” set to Enabled.
- “Label” change to what you wish displayed on the phones LCD.
- “Display Name” this is the caller ID others will see when you phone them.
- “Register Name” the account name needed on the Gateway, you can choose between 300 to 309. This number will correspond to the extension number in the Gateway, which we will configure later.
- “User Name” this is also the account name, this must match the number above.
- “Password” choose a password for this particular line, we will need to remember this for the Gateway settings.
Leave the next few items as default, until we reach “SIP Server 1”. Then change the following:
- “Server Host” change to your Gateway’s IP address, default 192.168.100.100, the port must stay at 5060.
- “Server Expires” change to 60.
- “Server Retry Counts” leave at 3.
There are many more options you can choose, but the above are needed to connect to the Gateway. Please consult your IP phone’s manual to set up the phone how you wish.
Setting up the Gateway
To allow the Gateway to work with SIP lines, you first need to go into the Telephony menu on the left.
Under the tab “VoIP Extensions” you will need to tick the enable box, and configure the following.
For each of the IP Phones you have configured, you will need to change that extension number to “Handset”. On the right is the password needed for each particular extension. These must be the same as you chose in steps 4, 5 and 6 in the phone configuration settings.
Configuring the IVR
To reach the IVR with your IP phone, press 0 to be greeted by the Gateway.
Above we have configured our IVR with some options.
- “IVR Option 0” Private call to a radio, you will be prompted for the radio ID.
- “IVR Option 1” Private call to a fixed radio ID, type the ID of the radio in the box to the right.
- “IVR Option 2” Call to a radio group, you will be prompted for the group ID.
- “IVR Option 3” Call to a fixed radio group, type the group ID in the box to the right.
- “IVR Option 4” Will trigger the “IVR-in” node in the flow editor.
- “IVR Option 5” Plays a saved .wav file
You can also change the greeting message, by adding a .wav file to the Gateway, and selecting the file at the “Introduction Sound File” field at the bottom.
