Due to its great flexibility, Ozeki Phone System XE enables to connect desktop and mobile phones as well to your PBX. This guide focuses on VoIP desktop phones and describes what you need and how you should configure your desktop IP phone in order to integrate it into your telecommunication network. To achieve this objective, you need a desktop IP phone (such as Grandstream GXP2000 in our example) and an Ozeki Phone System XE installed on your Windows PC.
|Video tutorial:||How to connect a Desktop VoIP Phone to Ozeki Phone System XE|
First and foremost, you need to install Ozeki Phone System XE. (If you need assistance in connection with the download process, installation and product activation, please visit the following page: Quick Start Guide. Here you can find a detailed step-by-step installation guide about the first steps.) After installation you need to launch the software.
After starting the software, the login screen will appear automatically on the WebGUI. In order to login you need to enter your username and password then click on the 'Login' button (Figure 1).

Now, the "Extensions" panel can be seen. Look for the "SIP extension" line in the Standard Extensions column then click on the 'Install' button (Figure 3).

Clicking on that button, a Configuration will appear, where you can specify the SIP account details to use for this extension: Extension phone number (optional), Authentication name (obligatory) and password (obligatory) (Figure 4). After providing this data, click on "OK" button.

Having done these steps, you need to connect your Desktop VoIP Phone to your communication system. (In this guide we demonstrate the required configuration steps using a Grandstream GXP2000 device, but the steps are the same for another device as well.)
After you have connected your phone to the VoIP network with the proper cables, the system will assign an individual IP address to the phone by using DHCP.
For confinguring your desktop phone, you need to open the configuration page of the phone by typing its IP address into your web browser. (In case of Grandstream GXP2000, you need to click on 'Account 1' for configuring the extension onto the Line 1.) On the configuration panel you need to specify the following information (Figure 5):

If you use an other kind of desktop phones, you also need to specify a Display name, Username (Extension phone number), Password, Authentication name and the IP address of the Ozeki Phone System XE.
After specifying the SIP details, click on the 'Update' button at the bottom of the page. The phone will be booted. When it is ready, click on the 'Reboot' button.
Now return to the Ozeki Phone System XE and click on the Log button. The 'Registration accepted' message will appear, if your configfuration was successful (Figure 6).
In order to make a call, dial the phone number of your new extension by using an other extension of your VoIP network. (In our example the No. 101 softphone extension dialed the new No. 1100 Desktop VoIP Phone extension.) Figure 6 shows that the whole call process can be tracked in the Log panel of your extension. 'Incoming call received' message indicates that an incoming call is in progress. 'Call established' message shows that the incoming call has been answered. After finishing the call, the 'Call completed' message will appear.

The guide above presented that Desktop VoIP Phones can be easily connected to Ozeki Phone System XE. If you follow that step-by-step, you will be able to install a new SIP extenstion in the PBX and configure your phone on its web GUI quickly. That's it. After that, your phone will be ready to use.
