How to correctly config and manage your M-net SIP trunk with your pascom phone system

Overview

Deutsche Telekom package specifications and tariff information can be found here. pascom phone systems (classic and cloud) support only Deutsche Telekom business tariffs.

pascom phone systems only supports direct SIP account registration in combination with the Deutsche Telekom recommended Lancom Router when connecting an IP PBX. Alternatively, it is possible to perform the registration on the router .

Should you use your own router, this must in principle comply with the criteria as the devices recommended by Deutsche Telekom. However, in such as scenario, pascom are not able to offer any support for the configuration.

Setup in pascom

Router preparation

Before beginning with the Deutsche Telekom trunk setup within your pascom phone system, please make sure that the following settings have been configured on your router:

Having checked the above, you can continue with adding the Trunk via the pascom phone system admin Web UI.

Setup via Fritz!Box

In the following scenarios, we recommend registering your Deutsche Telekom trunk via a Fritz!Box:

  • A Deutsche Telekom trunk will be registered that is not a business tariff.
  • The SIP Account registration to the provider occurs via a VLAN, in which the pascom phone system cannot access.

When using a Fritz!Box, the connection is limited to two voice channels due to the Fritz!Box firmware.
