Yealink – Configuring your phone

Yealink’s zero touch provisioning means you don’t need to touch the handset, instead, all that’s require is the phone’s MAC address retrieved from either; your reseller, the underside of the handset (or box) or finally from the phone itself using its web UI.

Web UI

  • Phones web UI: to access the phone’s web UI press the OK button (on the right of the keypad) to retrieve the phones IP address.
  • Enter the IP address in your browser (eg 192.168.1.xx).
  • UserName and Password: Admin- admin, Password- admin.

When you have the list of all MAC address for all handsets please email them to your provider, so they can provision them to the CLoudPBX.

Expansion Modules

The Yealink EXP40 is ideal for receptionists, administrative assistants, call center agents, power-users who need to monitor and manage a large volume of calls on a regular basis. The Yealink Expansion modules are virtually plug and play for anyone familiar with the Yealink phones.

The EXP40 is designed to work with the Yealink SIP-T46S, T46G, T48S and T48G IP phones with each EXP40 expansion module providing 20 physical keys with dual-color LEDs and two display pages, supporting a total of 40 keys.

Can you also daisy-chain up to six additional modules to a single T48S/T48G/T46S/T46G host phone, offering a maximum of 240 Ext keys per phone.

Quick guide

  • Connecting cord: Using the supplied connecting cord plug one end into the Ext jack on the rear of your Yealink handset with the other end Connect the Ext jack on the host phone and the “Ext in” jack on the expansion module.
  • Power: Power is automatically transferred from the host phone to the expansion module(s) upon connection. If you want to use more than two expansion modules on a single phone, you need to connect an additional power adapter to any one of the expansion modules.
  • Mounting: We normally attach the Yealink stand to hold the unit but you can also optionally hard bolt the expansion module to the phone using the supplied mounting kit and bolts.
  • DSS Keys: Once the lights on the module appear, go to the phones web UI then navigate to the Dsskey menu. The right side Ext Key will now display the first expansion module.
