Automatic Upgrade

Automatic Upgrade

HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 supports automatic upgrade at upgrade intervals or upon power-on.


  • The upgrade server is available.

It is recommended that you use the Apache server (a type of HTTP server) as the upgrade server. For details about how to install and configure an HTTP server, see Using the Apache Server.

  • Upgrade files are available.

    HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 has five types of upgrade files:

    • 1 Firmware Upgrade Image (version upgrade file)
    • 2 Config File (configuration file)
    • 3 Signal Voice File (signal tone file)
    • 4 Language Package (language package file)
    • 5 CA letter File (certificate file)
    • 9 MFG File (Manufacturer specified configuration file)

    For details about how to obtain the files, see Required Data.

  • The UPF file is available. For details, see Preparing a UPF File.

In the UPF file, retain the code of only files required for phone upgrade.


HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 periodically detects whether new upgrade files are available on the server and if there is any, automatically upgrades its version.


  1. Enter the UPF file URL and enable automatic upgrade on the IP phone.

    • For a single IP phone
      • Configure the UPF file URL. Specifically, access the phone web page as an administrator, choose Advanced > Server > Version Download Server > Upgrade Server, and enter the UPF file URL on the page that is displayed. The UPF file URL cannot contain any space and must be in format of https://HTTP server IP address:HTTP server port number/UPF file directory/UPF file name, for example, IP_Phone_7920.xml, and the port number to use depends on actual network environment. The default port number is 80.
      • Enable automatic upgrade. Specifically, on the phone web page, choose Advanced > Upgrade > Automatic Upgrade. On the page that is displayed, select Enable for Automatic Upgrade, select the required value from the Automatic Upgrade Interval drop-down list box, and click Save.
    • For multiple IP phones
      • Set UPFSeverInfo > UPFURL in the configuration file (Config-HUAWEI_IP_Phone_7920/Config-HUAWEI_IP_Phone_7960.xml) to the UPF file URL.
      • Set UpgrdCycInfo > ISAUTOUPG in the configuration file (Config-HUAWEI_IP_Phone_7920/Config-HUAWEI_IP_Phone_7960.xml) to 1.

        Deliver the configuration file using DHCP Option 246. For details, see Batch Configuration.

  2. Save the upgrade files to the root directory of the upgrade server. C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs is used as an example.
  3. Each time HUAWEI_IP Phone 7920/7960 is powered on or when the upgrade interval arrives, HUAWEI_IP Phone 7920/7960 starts automatic upgrade.
  4. When the message "Upgrade?" is displayed on the phone screen, select Yes.


    If no operation is performed 5s after the message "Upgrade?" is displayed, HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 also starts automatic upgrade.

  5. After the upgrade is complete, the message "Upgrade Success" is displayed on the phone screen.
