mPBX SIP device Yealink cordless configuration

In this tutorial we will configure a Yealink cordless/dect handset, to a SIP device assigned to a user inside mPBX. 

Yealink devices are used as an example, as they are the most widely used handset on our network. However, mPBX supports any softphone or handset that support the SIP protocol.

Additionally, the Yealink devices are extremely reliable and tested internally by our engineering team with mPBX, this is another reason why we heavily recommend these units. 

Should you not be using Yealink handsets, apply techniques shown in the article to configure your manufacturer of IP handset. Or alternatively contact our support department for assistance.  

Follow the instructions, supplied in the device user manual to assemble the cordless handset. The diagram below will also supply a visual representation of where the cables will need to be plugged in, using a cordless Yealink device. 

Connect the internet port to an Ethernet cable plugged into your internal network and the power supply.

Once plugged in find your base station's IP address, press the OK, status then base menu on the W56H cordless handset. Locate the address listed in the IPv4 section. 

Type the IPv4 address into your web browser to access the web-interface. Making sure that your PC is on the same network range as your handset. 

Locate the login details of you handset and enter them into the login page, if the handset has been purchased via VoIPLine then the details would have been emailed during the order process. 

Click on the accounts tab inside the Yealink portal. 

Login to your mPBX customer portal, click on the SIP devices tab and locate the device you want to configure. 

Next, fill in the details in the Yealink web portal from your SIP device information you have as below. 

Label: Set the label field to the name you want to appear on the screen of your handset. 

Display name: Set the display name field to the name to the same as the label.

Username: Enter the SIP login from mPBX, into the username field.

Server Host: Enter the SIP server address and port number from mPBX, into the server host field.

Check all the fields carefully, confirm that they match the details in your SIP devices section of mPBX and make sure that you have applied the configuration inside mPBX before trying to register a new device. 

Change the line active field from disabled to enabled, and click confirm. The registered status should appear if the details have been entered correctly. Please note if you would like to change which cordless handset is linked to which SIP account, click the number assignment tab on the left of the accounts, inside this option you will be able to adjust the handset assignment.
