After having configured the Cloud IPBX through the web portal, we now enter into the second phase of the deployment: the on-site installation.
This phase consists of the on-site deployment of terminals (or end-points). They include IP phones (hardphones), analog adapters (for fax or other legacy analog terminals) and softphones on devices such as PCs/Macs, Smartphones, Tablets…
In order to make this on-site installation, we strongly recommend to use automatic provisioning. It indeed avoids having to manually configure the terminal themselves. It is a big time saver, is much more secure and allows to replace a broken terminal without having to reconfigure it.
The main steps of the on-site installation are as follows:
- Infrastructure preparation
- Phone connection
- Phone manual provisioning (not recommended)
- Information to the users about their new telephony system
