SpectraLink Configuration Cradle

Overview

The SpectraLink Configuration Cradle is a two-slot cradle designed to automate the process of configuring the 8002, e340, h340 and i640 models of SpectraLink 8000 Wireless Telephone. The front slot of the cradle is for the SpectraLink 8002, e340/h340 Wireless Telephone; the rear slot is for the SpectraLink i640 Wireless Telephone. Only one handset may be configured at a time.

The Configuration Cradle can also aid in debugging system problems. See Chapter 8 Assert Errors.

The Configuration Cradle is connected to a PC via a serial cable. The Configuration Cradle program runs on the PC and enables the system administrator to establish and store configuration options for System, Group and User levels. The Configuration Cradle program can be downloaded from the Polycom website http://www.spectralink.com/softwareUpdates#software1

Configuration plans may be set up in the program and downloaded into a Wireless Telephone or a configured Wireless Telephone may be placed in the cradle and its configuration may be uploaded and edited or saved.

Installing the SpectraLink

Configuration Cradle

Set up the Configuration Cradle by first obtaining the appropriate SpectraLink power supply for your country or region. Place the Configuration Cradle on a flat, horizontal surface and plug the power supply into the Configuration Cradle and into an appropriate wall outlet. Plug a straight-through serial cable into the Configuration Cradle and into an available serial port on the PC.

Set up a folder for Wireless Telephone configuration on the PC and download the programming software from the Polycom website http://www.spectralink.com/softwareUpdates#software1 into this folder. Extract the individual files from the zip and run the

PhoneConfig.exe file.

Note that there is no installer or uninstaller since the program does not modify your system or registry. It runs from its current location and stores its settings locally.

Serial port settings are handled automatically by the Configuration Cradle software. If necessary, the COM port the Cradle is using can be set in the Settings menu.

USB Serial Adapters: Some adapters are incompatible with the Configuration Cradle. Of the adapters tested by Polycom engineering, two have been found to work:

Planning the Configuration Files

Each configurable option may be categorized as one of three types: System (Sys), Group (Grp) or User (Usr). System level options should be those that are stable across the entire system. DHCP vs. Static IP addressing would be an example of a System option. Options that are designated as Group type should be those that change by category of user. PTT Allow/Disallow and PTT Channel are examples. A unique extension number is assigned to each handset by the system administrator and would be a User type. The remaining User types should be reserved for options that are normally set by the end user. For Standby menu options such as Ring Type and Noise Mode, default values may be entered with the expectation that the user may change them.

Typical Configuration Plans

Because the specific options that are available depend on the software version and License Option, the typical plan options for your facility may be different than those listed here.

Typical System file settings:

System file settings typically do not change across an installation.

These are typical Sys categories:

License Option

Network Config

IP Addressing

ESSID

Security

Typical Group file settings:

If certain groups of people require different access to functions, such as push to talk, these options would be stored as Group files. Several

11

SpectraLink 8002, e340/h340/i640 Wireless Telephone: Configuration Cradle: Administration Guide

different Group files can be established and the handsets can be configured by group. Typical Grp categories are:

Push-to-talk options on both Admin and Standby menus

Typical User file settings:

If a setting can be changed by the user in the Standby menu, then it would typically be stored in a User file. These can be the default settings or whatever your system requires. Typical Usr categories are:

Extension

Static IP address

Ring Options

Phone Options

You may have zones in your facility that require different System settings, such as security. These settings can be moved to a Group file or you may set up two System files.

Configuration Cradle Window

When first opened, the PhoneConfig program displays the toolbar and a list of configurable options. All Editable settings fields are blank or are set to default values. Phone settings are unavailable until a handset is read or settings are copied to the Phone settings fields.

Initial window

A window similar to the one shown below appears when the Config Cradle program is first opened. The default filenames appear in the toolbar and all category radio buttons default to Usr.

SpectraLink 8002, e340/h340/i640 Wireless Telephone: Configuration Cradle: Administration Guide

Configuration Cradle Toolbar

The Config Cradle toolbar allows you to name, open, and save configuration files and download and upload configuration settings to and from the handset in the Cradle.

File management

Copy settings

Upload/download and indicators

File management

The three filename windows, System, Group and User match the three columns of radio buttons along the left side of the window. The Sys, Grp and Usr radio buttons allow you to designate the option(s) for System, Group or User files. The three windows in the file management section allow you to name, open, or save setting types as separate files.

The filenames shown above are the default names, but any filename can be assigned by entering it into the field and clicking the Save button. By default, the files will be saved in a new folder named ConfigData under the folder where the program is stored. The new folder will be created automatically the first time a file is saved. To open an existing file, click the Open button and browse to the file. Use the File menu to customize the file structure, if desired.

The three flags beside the Save buttons have four colors to indicate the status of the file displayed in the window:

Red: file does not exist. The filename in the window has not been saved.

Yellow: file not loaded. The filename in the window exists in the ConfigData folder but has not been loaded into the Editable settings.

Green: unsaved edits. When changes are made in the Editable settings field(s) the green flag indicates these have not been saved.

Gray: file up to date. The settings have been saved.

Configuration Cradle Window

Copy settings

The Copy settings arrows and checkboxes allow you to copy between the Phone settings column and the Editable settings column. The Sys Grp Usr check boxes allow you to copy just the settings you require.

Upload/download and indicators

When the Read Phone and Write Phone buttons are clicked, they initiate the transfer of configuration data from or to the handset in the Cradle. The handset indicators change color to indicate the state of the transfer. See below for indicator color significance. The Stop button will halt the transfer.

The Serial and MAC windows display the serial number and MAC address of the handset in the Cradle. This information is not stored.

The four labeled flags on the right indicate the status of the configuration transfer:

Active: green when attempting communication with handset in Cradle. Turns yellow if a timeout occurs (may be due to an improperly seated handset). The software will repeatedly re-attempt communication after a timeout so re-seating the handset should correct the problem.

Read: green when information is currently being read from the handset in the Cradle.

Write: yellow when information is currently being written to the handset in the Cradle.

Error: red when an error has occurred. An error message will appear on the status bar at the bottom of the main window.

Creating Your Configuration Plan

Although not necessary for using the Config Cradle program, a configuration plan can maximize its efficiency and save countless hours of handset option management.

Organize the plan

Determine which options should be categorized as each type –

System, Group or User.

Do not create a plan that saves an option in two different categories. Option categories should be established and should not overlap. Example: Speakerphone and Push-to-talk settings (SpectraLink i640 handset only) are typically tagged as Grp options and saved as Group files.

Create the options and save the settings

Once you have established which options will be categorized as System, Group or User, enter the configuration information into the

Editable settings fields.

Start with the System options and enter all system-level field values, such as IP addresses, security, and reg domain. Click the Sys radio button on the left side of the window for each option. Save these settings as a System file by entering a descriptive filename in the System filename field and clicking Save. See the example below.

Note that when a setting is changed, the option label is highlighted in yellow until it is saved.

In the same way, create each Group plan by entering the values in the fields designated as Group types. Click the Grp radio button on the left side of the window for each option. Save each plan under a different name in the Group filename field. You may have several groups – possibly divided by sets of PTT users.

It is recommended that you establish one generic User file that has the default (or desired) values for each User field. Click the Usr radio

PN: 1725-36036-001_D.doc

17

SpectraLink 8002, e340/h340/i640 Wireless Telephone: Configuration Cradle: Administration Guide

button on the left side of the window for each option and save the generic user file.

If desired, user settings can be saved for each user, as each handset is configured. If you determine that each handset configuration should be saved, it is easiest to do this during the configuration process. See

Downloading a configuration plan to a handset, below.

Alternately, you can upload options from a correctly-configured handset; copy them to the Editable settings column, categorize them and save them. See Uploading a configuration plan from a handset below.

Sample Configuration Window

Shown on the next page is a typical Static IP configuration using the WEP security method. All push to talk (PTT) settings are saved as a group. The settings in the Editable settings field were first uploaded from a configured handset and then copied from Phone settings.
