Central Provisioning of Algo SIP Endpoints
Algo SIP endpoints support central provisioning. Configuration tips and guides are available below for reference.
Where it is necessary to manage and configure a large numbers of devices, central provisioning eliminates the need to log into each endpoint web interface. As a result, central provisioning can save time and ensure consistent configuration setups. Provisioning is also a method by which to pre-configure units prior to installation on the final network.
The concept is simple. Configuration files can be placed on a central server. Algo endpoints can then be pointed to fetch these configuration files. Such files can be easily made 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.
