Provisioning: The IP phone is managed via the pascom PBX web UI. Firmware Management: Firmware can be managed and updated via the pascom PBX web UI. Desktop Client CTI Control: The desktop UC client can remotely control the phone, i.e. to start calls. pascom Menu: A button on the phone will be assigned to access the pascom menu.
Due to vast range of firmware versions available for the different IP telephones, it is not possible for us to test each version. Therefore, it could be the case that pascom does not support some firmware versions.
The process of configuring or registering an VoIP phone with an IP PBX such as pascom’s is know as . For this purpose, pascom phone systems include a Default Configuration ( > ). For most deployment scenarios, these standard settings provide an ideal configuration. However, in some cases, the settings may need to be modified.
Add New Phone
1. Finding the MAC Address
MAC addresses can be found on the rear underside of the telephone.
Alternatively, the MAC address is often found on the product packaging.
2. Add Phones / Endpoints
Log into your pascom phone system and under > and press and select the option IP Telephone: Manufacturer Snom.
Select a display name for the telephone.
Under the corresponding field, enter the Mac-Address that you have just found and noted.
For Provisioning, you still have to enter the HTTP user and the HTTP password of the phone. You can obtain the data from the respective manufacturer’s manual.
3. Assigning Users
As soon as the IP phone has appeared in the Device List, it can be edited via the button. Under the tab, the phone can be assigned to a user (or location)
4. Apply Jobs
After saving your phone setup configurations, a corresponding prompt to apply telephony configs will appear in the job box (top of the screen). Simply start the job by clicking on the .
5. Connect the Phone
Connect the phone to your network. Snom IP phones come with a built in switch, allowing you to connect the phone directly via the Ethernet port labelled as NET. Should you not have a PoE option available, connect the phone to a power supply.
Is the phone already integrated in your network?
Restart the Phone.
Should the telephone not be factory new, ensure you perform a factory reset. In order to do this on the phone, power up the phone and then press holding the Buttons until the phone restarts. Confirm by pressing to perform the factory reset.
6. Function testing
The simplest method of testing whether a device has been successfully deployed is to call ones Voicemail box via *100. On successfully provisioned phones, you should now hear your Voicemail box prompts.
pascom Menu Key
After the provisioning process, the Menu button on Snom phones is no longer assigned to the Telephone Menu, but rather to a telephone specific pascom Menu making the following pascom phone system functions available:
Opens up the central PBX phonebook.
Displays answered, dialed and missed calls
Sets a call forwarding, activates / updates a previously configured call forwarding or deactivates an active call forwarding.
Voicemail box menu for activating/deactivating your mail box, plus message play backs
Enables a user to log into the location where the phone is (Hotdesking / roaming users).
Logs out the current user from this location.
Is used for agent management within a queue (login, logout, pause..) according the configuration of the queue.
Should the Snom IP telephone not have a menu key (i.e. Snom 300, 710 or D715), then the second function key will be assigned with the pascom menu function.
Only set Call Forwardings via the pascom menu as they can then be managed by the PBX and reflected within the desktop UC client etc.
Using the DND key (do not disturb) directly on your Snom phone, ensures that the assigned user extension cannot be reached on the phone. The DND notice will appear only on the telephone itself and will have no impact on other endpoints or the Desktop UC client (softphone).

Finding the IP-Address on the Telephone
Press the ? (i.e. the help) in order to call up the phone IP address.
Finding the IP-Address via the pascom Web UI Device List
Log into the PBX Web UI and select the > , which provides you an overview of all available devices. To the left of each entry is an Info symbol which when clicked will open an overview of the provisioned telephone including the IP address.
In order to access certain menu options with the Snom Telephone web UI, you will require admin rights. To do this simply go the Advanced menu point and now enter the Admin Password.
In the menu of the left, click on the option.
User / Extension Monitoring with BLF Keys
Using the function keys, it is possible to monitor other extensions (i.e. users). The BLF keys (Busy Lamp Field) can be used to provide status information relating to the monitored extension. In this scenario, monitoring means watching the extension to see if the user is currently on the phone, being called or to answer calls intended for this extension (call pickup).
Select Account / Identity
The extension to be monitored (e.g. 123) in the following format 123|*8
Should the telephone have a second display for paperless keys, then the keys labels can be entered here.
Alongside user extensions, it is also possible to configure keys as login / out codes for queues or to configure them as an extension switch.
