Yealink – Adjusting the sending volume (outgoing volume) on the T2, T4 and T5 Series Phones

You may be getting reports from your customers saying that when they are on a call, the opposite party is telling them that their audio is too quiet, or maybe even too loud when they talk. Usually this isn’t a problem because the opposite party can adjust the volume of the person calling with their own phone, but what if the opposite party has already done that and it’s still too quiet or too loud?

If that is the case then you may be able to adjust three settings on the Yealink device. These can found on the web user interface by going to the ‘Features’ > ‘Audio’ page and adjusting the settings in the image below outlined in green.

An alternative way to think what these settings do is adjusting how sensitive the microphone is on the device. You can adjust the handset, headset and handsfree sensitivity to be weaker or stronger. The valid values are between -50 and 50. The higher the value, the louder it should be. The lower the value, the quieter it should be.

When adjusting this setting it is important to be cautious. Incorrectly configuring the value can have adverse effects on the audio quality so it’s advisable to gradually increase or decrease the value until you find the right spot.

If you control your own provisioning server and would like to configure this remotely you can use the provisioning parameters below:

voice.headset_send
voice.handset_send
voice.handfree_send

Hopefully after adjusting these settings it resolves the issue and provides a better experience for the end-user and the opposite party on the calls.

Polycom VVX – Capturing SIP Traffic

This blog post is going to show you how to configure a Polycom VVX device to capture the SIP traffic flowing between the device and SIP Server.

This can be useful to try and diagnose SIP registration, or outbound calling issues.

Step 1 – Accessing the web user interface

First we need to find the IP address of the Polycom device. This can be done by pressing the ‘Home‘ button (symbol of a house) on the phone and scrolling through the menu and selecting ‘Settings’ > ‘Status’ > ‘Network’ > ‘TCP/IP Parameters’ and on this page make a note of the values in the “IPv4 Addr” field.

Now we have the IP address of the device, we need to access the web user interface. This can be done by launching a web browser and inputing the IP address in to the top search bar. You DO need to define ‘https://‘ and port ‘443‘ as the transport type and communication port as shown in the image below:

Once you have entered the IP address it may present a warning saying the connection is not private:

This is to be expected and you are seeing this because the TLS certificate on the device is not signed by a certificate authority recognised by the browser. Click the ‘Advanced’ button and then click “proceed to (‘IP Address’)”. Once you have done that you should be at the login page as shown in the image below.

To login, select the ‘Admin’ user and enter the password.
By default this is ‘456’.

Step 2 – Configuring the log level

Once logged in go to ‘Settings‘ > ‘Logging

Once the ‘Logging’ page loads set the ‘Global Log Level Limit‘ to ‘Debug‘ and set the ‘Log File Size‘ to ‘1000‘ as shown in the image below.

Next Expand the ‘Module Log Level Limits‘ section and change ‘SIP‘ to ‘Debug‘ as shown in the image below and click save at the bottom of the page.

Step 3 – Replicating the issue and downloading the log

Now the phone is configured to log the SIP packets flowing through the device it’s time to replicate the issue. If your issue is related to SIP Registrations a reboot of your device can be done to force a registration.

If your problem is with outbound calls not progressing you can go ahead and attempt to make a call.

Once the fault has been replicated, login to the web user interface and this time go to ‘Diagnostics‘ > ‘View & Download logs

Once on this page you can view the logging information, but if a support engineer at ProVu has asked you to capture these files, please export all three file types by using the radial button below to change which file is downloaded and then click the ‘Export’ button.

Important – Once you’ve exported the logs, be sure to go back to ‘Settings’ > ‘Logging’ and click the ‘Reset to ‘Default’ button at the bottom of the page to revert the changes we’ve made.

Cisco CP Range – How to capture a ‘.pcap’ trace

This blog post is going to outline the steps to take to source the required file. If you contact the ProVu support team experiencing Registration or Call issues with the Cisco CP series of phones, we will require a PCAP trace capturing the problem to help identify the cause of the issue.

Step 1 – Access the web user interface

In order to access the web user interface of your device you will need to find the IP address. There are a few ways this can be done such as logging in to your router and checking the DHCP table, but most likely the easiest method and the one this blog post is going to cover is to get it physically from the phone.

You’ll need to press the ‘Settings‘ button on the phone which has the symbol of a cog. Once you have pressed this button scroll through the options available and select ‘Status‘ > ‘Network Status‘ > ‘IPV4 Status‘ and make a note of the IP address.

Once you have the IP address, open a web browser and type the IP address in to the top search bar and press enter as displayed in the image below.

 
Once you have pressed enter it should take you to the ‘Info‘ page. On here you need to select the admin user and then advanced options by clicking the red outlined text in the image below.

(By default there is no admin password applied but if you have set one it will require this)

Once you have done that go to ‘Info‘ > ‘Debug Info‘ and you should be on the page below.

 

Step 2 – Capturing the ‘.pcap’ trace

On the ‘Info‘ > ‘Debug Info‘ page there is a section under ‘Problem Reports‘ that says “Packet Capture” with a button next to it. Follow the steps below to generate the file.

  • Press ‘Start Packet Capture‘ and select the capture filter to ‘All‘.
  • Replicate the issue – if your issue is related to outbound calls failing, attempt to place an outbound call. If your issue is related to Registration issues you can force a Registration by disabling and enabling the SIP Account:
    • To do this you need to go to ‘Voice’ > ‘Ext 1‘ and change ‘Line Enabled‘ to ‘No‘. Then click ‘Submit all Changes‘ at the bottom of the page. Wait 30 seconds for the web user interface to reload and then go back to ‘Voice‘ > ‘Ext 1‘ tab and change ‘Line Enable‘ to ‘Yes‘ and click ‘Submit all changes‘.
  • Press the button next to ‘Packet Capture‘ again (this time it should say “Stop Packet Capture“)
  • Once the trace has been stopped and generated you can download it from “Capture File” link outlined in the image below.

Once you have download the file please send it to the engineer requesting it, or to support@provu.co.uk if this is the first time reporting the issue.

APC Temporary Suspension of Services to Tier 4 Impacted Areas

We have received notice from APC that due to the increased demand for deliveries going to Tier 4 restricted areas, they are suspending their service to these locations until 29th December. This largely affects the South East, London and Wales.

During this time any orders to these areas will automatically be booked on with DPD instead. Please note, we have an earlier collection time with DPD and therefore the cut off for same day despatch is 15:45.

We are working hard to make sure deliveries run as smoothly as possible during these difficult times, however delays are inevitable.

For a reminder of our Christmas opening times and services please see our Christmas opening & shipping times blog.

How to Resolve Yealink RPSing

If you have recently factory reset a Yealink handset then you may see the following notifications on your devices screen. ‘input sn‘ on the first line (top left of the screen) or ‘RPSing’ on the account information on the web interface.

Yealink RPSing

In this blog, we will take you through a few short steps you can take to solve this issue and have your phones back up and running as soon as possible.

Step 1:

Click on the function key where ‘input sn‘ is located. You should then be presented with the following page:

Enter the last 5 digits of the serial number (Not the MAC address)

You get x5 attempts at entering the correct SN, if you enter the incorrect serial number you will get the following message:

Step 2:

Once you have entered the last 5 digits of the serial number the phone should then reset and boot up as normal.

Entering the serial number bounds the phone onto the Yealink RPS account.

If you run into any issues or would like more Yealink technical advice, please contact support@provu.co.uk or call 01484 840048 option 2.
