I do not think that this is specifically an Asterisk problem.  The
SNOM phones that we use (870s and 76s) have FW  On the
Update tab of the Advanced setting page there are set the update
policy and URI.  In our case the settings are 'Never update, load
settings only', from URL, with a refresh
interval of 600840.

The phone will look at for a file called
snom870-000000000000.htm  where 000000000000 is the phone's MAC
number.  If that fails then it will look for snom870.htm instead. 
These files should contain the xml dialect for the SNOM phone
configuration directives:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<language perm="RW">English</language>
<dnd_on_code perm="">*78</dnd_on_code>
. . .

You need to provide a service that will provide the file via URI. You
must put files therein with names following the specific nomenclature
employed buy the phones themselves. Finally you must also set the
phones to read from that location and to apply the configurations
retrieved therefrom.
