From software 242 we have implemented the Broadsoft XSI Phonebooks, we support the following Phonebooks:
- Enterprise Directory
- Enterprise Common Phone List
- Group Directory
- Group Common Phone List
- Personal Phone List
The difference between Enterprise/Group Directory and the Enterprise/Group Common Phone List is that the Directory contains a list of contacts in the enterprise/group whereas the Common Phone List is a list of commonly used contacts that are not in the enterprise/group.
The Broadsoft XSI phonebooks needs to be enabled via Auto provisioning.
With software 242, we support one general access to the Broadsoft phone-books for the N510, all 6 handsets are using the same phone-books.
With software 244, we have made improvements that every handset is using his own phone-books/ credentials to open there own phone-books.
The provisioning template below is created for the software 244 or higher, it can't be used for software 242 : -
The N510 web-interface provides a limited overview of the Broadsoft XSI Phonebook settings.
First via provisioning, the platform Broadsoft has to be set:
<!-- Set Broadsoft as SIP Platform -->
<SYMB_ITEM ID="BS_IP_Data.ucI_PHONE_SYSTEM" class="symb_item" value="0x05"/>
|Settings - Directories - Corporate Directory|
Server address: XSI Server
Username: XSI Username for the Handset ..
Password: XSI Password for the Handset ..
Enable directory: All 5 phonebooks will be enabled.
If different combination was done via provisioning this checkbox will be disabled to prevent user from overwriting provider's settings.
Autolookup: switch enables autolookup for all 5 directories
Authenticate with personal provider data (SIP): Using SIP / XSI username credentials for security (Mostly used setting)
