Configure 3rd party SIP devices (Edge)

From Zenitel Wiki


Up to 10 3rd party SIP devices, such as SIP phones, SIP Speakers, Soft Phones etc., can be registered to an IC-EDGE System. Each SIP device requires that a SIP User account is defined on the Edge Controller.


For each SIP device used on the system, there must be a valid 3rd party SIP telephone license installed.

To insert a license:

License for 4 SIP devices installed

  • From factory there is a 60-day free license period during which SIP devices can be used without the need of any license.
  • When the free license period expires there must be a valid license installed, if not the SIP device will cease to operate

Create a SIP Account

To add a new SIP account:

  • From Edge Controller > System Configuration > Directory, under the Manually Added Devices section, press the "+" button
  • Select 3rd party SIP from the dropdown list
  • Modify Number and Name as required (a default Number and Name will be inserted, which you can modify)
  • Optionally one can add a SIP Password. If a password is entered, one have to also manually configure the same password in the SIP device it self. The password is used for the registration proccess.
