Introduction

All Algo SIP products support provisioning. This allows system administrators to manage & configure large numbers of devices without the need to log into each individual web interface, which can save time and ensure consistent setups. It can also be used by installers to pre-configure units prior to installation on the final network.

The concept is simple: configuration files can be placed on a central server, and then the Algo devices can be instructed to fetch these files. Configuration files can be easily generated by downloading a backup of the settings currently on a device.

To provision an Algo endpoint, three steps are necessary:

  • Provide the Algo endpoint device with the address of the provisioning server
  • Create the desired configuration files, and place these on the provisioning server
  • Reboot the device

These steps are described in more detail in the Provisioning Guide.

Firmware Notes

Please note that the 8301 Paging Adapter & Scheduler, 8186 SIP Horn Speaker, and 8188 SIP Ceiling Speaker now ship with 1.6 firmware. To identify them look at the release number on the box or on the label.

  • 8301 - Rls 10 or above - Firmware 1.6.2
  • 8186 - Rls 9 or above - Firmware 1.6.1
  • 8188 - Rls 12 or above - Firmware 1.6.2

Please be aware that the firmware on these devices cannot be downgraded, due to the new driver support required by the latest iteration of the on-board memory used in this hardware.

If using the provisioning function to install a specific version of firmware, be sure to use the appropriate files supported by these devices.

If you already tried to downgrade or need assistance, please contact Algo Support.
