There’s some excellent documentation about provisioning on the Snom Wiki:


You can set the phones (via DHCP options) a firmware url on a web server under your control, grab their MAC addresses, then deliver them custom config settings as required.

Easiest way to start is to copy the config file (via the web interface) from a phone with factory default settings, then just change the settings you need to change, and write something in your scripting language of choice (PHP, Perl, Python, etc.) to just send those settings to the phone dependent on MAC address. Don’t send *every* available config setting to the phone - only the changes from default you need to make.

I suspect the same can be done with Yealink and Polycom phones - I’ve not used those so can’t really comment. I have a similar system which seems to work for Sipura/Linksys/Cisco phones, though most of my new deployments are exclusively Snom.

Kind regards,
