Connecting an IP phone to eSight

Connecting an IP phone to eSight

Before connecting an IP phone to eSight, set TR069 parameters on the IP phone.

  • Manually set TR069 parameters. For details, see Setting Parameters for Connecting to eSight.
    • If a domain name service (DNS) server is available onsite, configure the mapping between the eSight domain name and IP address on the DNS server to complete TR069 parameter settings.
    • If a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is available onsite, set the DHCP Option246 field to batch deliver TR069 parameters.
    • If neither a DNS server nor DHCP server is available onsite, manually set TR069 parameters on the web page or liquid crystal display (LCD) screen of an IP phone.
  • Automatically set TR069 parameters.

    If neither a DNS server nor DHCP server is available onsite and a great number of IP phones are deployed, use the access scan function to batch set TR069 parameters.

eSight provides three connection methods for IP phones:
  • (Recommended) Automatic deployment: Create IP phone subnets on eSight. After you create IP phone subnets and set IP phone TR069 parameters, IP phones are automatically added to the corresponding subnets.
  • Batch import: In the template provided by eSight, add the IP address, physical SN, and access gateway of each IP phone to connect to eSight and import information from the template to eSight. For details, see . This method is slightly time-consuming.
  • Manual addition: Manually add each IP phone to eSight. This method takes more time and is recommended only for the commissioning onsite.
NOTE:
From V200R003C00SPC800, the IP phone reports its registration status after connecting to eSight, first at the time when one fourth of the preset time arrives, then half of the preset time, and afterwards periodically at intervals of the preset time. If the preset time is shorter than 300s, 300s is used.

Setting Parameters for Connecting to eSight

This section describes how to set parameters for connecting eSpace 8950s to eSight for unified management.

Prerequisites
  • All eSpace 8950s have been connected to the network, and have their IP addresses obtained or configured.
  • eSight has been deployed, and the user name and password for eSight login have been obtained.

    For details about how to deploy eSight, see the eSight Product Documentation.

Context
  • If a DHCP server has been deployed, eSpace 8950 obtains the Application Control Server (ACS) IP address (carried in the Option 246 field) and its own IP address from the DHCP server. eSpace 8950 then resolves the ACS server address to obtain the eSight IP address. According to the eSight server IP address, eSpace 8950 automatically sends a request for connecting to eSight. Once eSpace 8950 is connected to eSight, its information is displayed on the eSight management portal.
  • If no DHCP server is available, you need to specify a static IP address for eSpace 8950 on its LCD screen first. For details, see .
  • If a DNS server has been deployed, eSpace 8950 obtains the DNS server address and its own IP address from the DHCP server, and sends a request to the DNS server for resolving the enterprise domain name (for example, ucems.company.com) into the eSight IP address. According to the eSight IP address, eSpace 8950 automatically sends a request for connecting to eSight. Once eSpace 8950 is connected to eSight, its information is displayed on the eSight management portal.
  • If neither a DHCP server nor the DNS server is available, you need to manually set the ACS IP address to the eSight IP address for eSpace 8950.
Connecting to eSight Using DHCP
eSpace 8950 is able to resolve the value of acs.address carried in the DHCP Option 246 field to obtain the eSight IP address.
  • If the DHCP server installed on the Windows Server 2008 is used, set String value for the Option 246 field to acs.address=http://ACS server IP address:Port number/tr069/services/acs, for example, acs.address=http://192.168.1.37:8089/tr069/services/acs. For details about the setting, see Setting Option 246 Parameters.
  • If a switch is used as the DHCP server, set the DHCP server's Option 246 field to acs.address=http://ACS server IP address:Port number/tr069/services/acs, for example, acs.address=http://192.168.1.37:8089/tr069/services/acs.
Connecting to eSight Using DNS

If a DNS server has been deployed, add the default domain name ucems.company.com to the DNS server and map ucems.company.com to the eSight IP address. For details about how to add a DNS domain name, see Setting Up the AD and DNS Servers.

If you have added the domain name, right-click the domain name and choose Properties from the shortcut menu, as shown in Figure 4-4. In the window that is displayed, set the IP address of the domain name to the eSight IP address.

Figure 4-4  Modifying domain name settings on the DNS server

NOTE:
If you want to change the default domain name ucems.company.com to your enterprise domain name, for example, example.com, enter example.com (company is a variable, which is the name of your company) in the Option 15 field of the DHCP server. The IP phone then automatically changes the domain name from the factory default (ucems.company.com) to ucems.example.com and changes the ACS address from the factory default (https://ucems.company.com/tr069/services/acs) to https://ucems.example.com /tr069/services/acs.
Connecting to eSight in Manual Mode
For eSpace 8950, the factory default of the ACS address is https://ucems.company.com:8444/tr069/services/acs. In manual connection mode, replace ucems.company.com with the eSight IP address according to the data plan.
  • On the phone web page, choose Advanced > TR069 and modify the settings of ACS parameters. For details, see .

Access Scan

When a great number of eSpace 7910 IP phones and eSpace 7950 IP phones with the version V100R001C02 or later, and eSpace 8950 IP phones with all versions connect to the eSight, the eSight uses the access scan function to send auto-configuration server (ACS) addresses and certificate paths to the IP phones. After IP phones automatically update their configurations based on the information received from the eSight, the IP phones automatically connect to corresponding IP phone subnets.

Prerequisites

  • An IP phone subnet has been created.
  • IP phones of the correct models and versions are available.
    NOTICE:
    The access scan function applies to eSpace 7910 IP phones and eSpace 7950 IP phones with the version V100R001C02 or later, and eSpace 8950 IP phones with all versions.

Context

  • Devices that are scanned for may not be IP phones because the eSight cannot distinguish device types from the information sent by the scanned devices during scan access. This results in that the number of scanned devices is different from the number of connected IP phones.
  • If you restart the eSight when an access scan task is running, the task will not continue after the restart. You must manually stop the task and start the task again.

Procedure

  1. Choose Business > Collaboration > IPPhone Management from the main menu.
