AudioCodes 405 settings


This reference describes all the settings associated with the AudioCodes 405 phone.

For information on creating the actual phone configuration in Genesys Cloud, see Create the base settings and Create a phone.


Base Settings

Before you can create a phone, you need to create a Base Settings configuration for that phone model. The Base Settings configuration contains a group of settings that define how a particular phone model is to operate in Genesys Cloud. Once you create a Base Settings configuration, you can assign it to a phone with the default settings, or you can customize the settings. This section describes all the settings that you can configure when you choose to customize a Base Settings configuration.

Menu: Telephony / Phone Management / Base Settings / Create-Edit Base Settings

Tab: Base Phone

Section: Phone Configuration

Setting Description
Dynamic Reload

Enabled (Default): allows the dynamic reloading of the phone configuration.

Disabled: Do not allow dynamic reloading.

This is the administrative password that you use when configuring the phone from the Web interface. By default the password is masked, but you can select the Show Password check box to see the password in plain-text.
Time Settings  
Timezone Discovery

Enabled (Default): Automatically sets the timezone for the phone based on the timezone of the DHCP server.

Disabled : Allows manually setting the timezone based on GMT.

SNTP Server Sets the name of the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server from which the phone obtains the current time.
GMT Offset

When Timezone Discovery is Enabled, this setting is automatically configured from DHCP.

When Timezone Discovery is Disabled, use this field to set the number of hours to offset the time of the phone from GMT.

Note: When Timezone Discovery is Disabled and Daylight Saving Time is enabled, you should calculate the GMT offset based on the standard timezone.
