How to setup RPS in IP phone

Introduction

Redirect Provisioning Server

A Redirect Provisioning Server(RPS) is a intermediate device that offers redirection service between Akuvox’s phone and Auto provisioning server. User’s phone can obtain auto provisioning URL from Akuvox RPS, then download the common.cfg or MAC.cfg file from Auto provisioning server.

Advantage

*Akuvox’s phone can upgrade without manual configuration.

*Plug and play for customer.

Configuration on Akuvox IP Phone

To activate RPS service, please import the provision template cfg file with below settings and then reboot the phone, the phone will be updated via the rps feature.

Config.Autoprovision.REDIRECT.Url = https://redirect.akuvox.com \\
Config.Autoprovision.REDIRECT.Enable = 1
Currently all the Akuvox IP Phones have default factory setting with above configuration. IP Phone will automatically connect to RPS server to obtain provision file on first booting. If IP Phone successfully obtains the provision file, the RPS feature will be disabled(Config.Autoprovision.REDIRECT.Enable = 0). Otherwise the configuration remains the same.
