Learn how one service provider was able to scale their business by using a device management solution
If you’re looking to provision and configure your Avaya J129 you’ve come to the right place! The Avaya J129 is a unique case to VoIP phones, as it does not have a web interface. Therefore, the phone needs to be configured by using the keypad. We will walk you through the process of configuring the phone below.
The J129 can only be manually provisioned by using the keypad. Manual Provisioning is exactly what it sounds like, manual & time consuming. However, this may be useful when one time provisioning a small number of phones.
Note: Only TCP and TLS is available by default. UDP is usually the standard, but this is not an available option unless enabled via provisioning. If your SIP server uses UDP, you will have to provision this phone through a centralized provisioning server to enable UDP.
There are 2 ways you can point your phones to your server:
Note: Obviously a Cisco server will be different from a Microsoft server. Below we have included some generic instructions for configuring options 66 in your server. If you run into trouble, please consult the documentation specific to your server.
The best method is going to be determined by the needs of your organization at the time of provisioning. If one-time provisioning a small number of phones, manual provisioning may be an easy option. However, we typically recommend using a centralized provisioning server as it is quicker and allows you to manage all your phones in one place. This is especially true when onboarding a large number of phones.
