SIP with Panasonic – Provisioning
Ease of Installation and Provisioning
As a provider of telecoms services, you have to supply your customers with great products as well as great service. This means finding terminals that impress and delight your customers, whilst still being reliable and easy to configure and support.
At Panasonic, a great deal of thought has gone into ensuring that both end users and telecoms service providers have a lot to like in the KX-UT series of SIP terminals.
Your customers will love the best in class sound quality, ease of use and low power consumption; while you will be impressed with the quality and versatility of the available configuration options – from local configuration via the built-in web server, through to completely automated bulk setup using a Panasonic redirection server delivering fully automatic ‘hands free’ configuration. Your customers just need to “plug in and turn on”.
Supplying telecoms services is a global business, and Telephony Service Providers (TSPs) are expected to support equipment wherever it is deployed. With the KX-UT series of SIP terminals, Panasonic has gone to great lengths to make deployment and support as easy as possible, whatever your customers location.
The Panasonic KX-UT series enables no fewer than three types of provisioning, with various degrees of automation, giving you all the options you need to provide premium service levels to your customers. Panasonic’s remote administration and automatic configuration technologies are designed to minimise project roll-out time, reduce TSP costs and improve the user experience.
Provisioning in 3 Ways
Panasonic Redirect Server
Pre-provisioning DHCP (Option 66) for TFTP/FTP
Manual Device Provisioning
Remote Maintenance (TR-069)
Remote Maintenance (Broadsoft DMS)
Easy Firmware Update on Site
Provisioning and Maintenance is as Important as the product when delivering a cost effective customer service
As a service provider you can choose the configuration system that best meets your needs:
- Redirection Server – All the terminals ship with the address of the redirection server built-in. At power up, the phones contact the redirection server to identify their provisioning server. In turn, the provisioning server supplies complete configuration data to the phone. The customer simply – plugs in, turns on – and receives service once configuration completes.
- Provisioning Server with preconfigured URL – For high volume TSPs with their own provisioning server, Panasonic can pre-configure the phones with a provisioning server address.
- DHCP option 66 (RFC2132) – For larger, local installations, DHCP option 66 can be used to provide the address of a TFTP server which provides configuration files to the phones.
In order to ensure data security, HTTPS server certificates are supported, to allow secure transfer and connection to the provisioning server.
Whichever provisioning system you choose, your customers’ systems can be up and running securely, accurately and quickly.
