EM Upgrade IP Phone FW
There are two ways to upgrade/update IP Phone Firmware:
- via a TFPT server and .cfg files,
- via the Element Manager, the method described here.
1 Obtain the latest firmware .bin files, and the readme PDF file, which is useful to determine which file is for which phone type.
2 Open the readme file, and scroll down to the Model/Software table. For example:
3 Open Element Manager, and login.
4 Click the radio button to select a phone type, and click Update....
5 Reference the table (step 2), and Browse... to the appropriate firmware .bin file for this phone-type. Click Upload.
6 When the file has uploaded, confirm the version and supported phones, then click Update to 'distribute' the file to the Signalling Servers. When the status is Completed, click Done.
7 In the IP Phone Firmware screen confirm that the 'TPS Firmware' version is updated.
8 Go back to step 4, and repeat until all phone type firmwares have been updated.
9 Finally, power-cycle a phone to force it to download and update its firmware from the Signalling Server.
