EndPoint Manager

EndPoint Manager is a module within FreePBX®, that can be used to install and provision IP phones as well as manage firmware updates. This is a very useful tool that works with the most of the major brands. As an example we will setup a Cisco phone, to begin select Install on Cisco. Next you will see available models for that brand, select Enable for your current model. Next go to the Advanced Settings and set the IP Address of the PBX,and set the directory where phones will update the firmware from.

Through the use of this module you can optimize provisioning, and managing phones without having to physically configure the phones through each GUI interface, or creating multiple configuration files.
