CP960 Star Connection

Yealink Star Connection is where you can connect multiple devices together.

The CP960 supports this feature so you can have larger conferences.

You can connect up to four CP960’s together, one will be the master phone and the rest will act as slave phones.

The Master phone will keep all of its features but the slave phones only sync some of the features of the master phone such as call mute and DND. The slave phones are only used for speakers and microphones.

Here is how to set up Star Connection:

Please note: before you start you must make sure that all the Yealink CP960’s are on the same subnet.

From the CP960 that you want to be the Master unit go to > Settings > Advanced Settings (default password: admin) > CP Star Connection > Create Group (this will generate a random four digit pin)

Now from the slave units go to > Settings > Advanced Settings > CP Star Connection > Search Group (this will automatically find the Master unit if they are on the same subnet) > once it finds the Master unit click > Join > enter the four digit pin displayed on the Master unit > OK.

The Slave units will then reboot into slave mode as shown below:

Once the slave units have rebooted you will be presented with a message on both units as per below:

Once all the Slave units have rebooted and you have confirmed by pressing ‘OK‘ you can then ‘Stop Broadcast‘ on the Master unit.

You have now successfully setup Yealink CP Star Connection.

If you have any issues with any of the above please contact support@provu.co.uk or call 01484840048 option 2 for support.

Yealink T2x & T4x phones on 3CX – Firmware upgrade issues.

You may have recently noticed that some of your Yealink T2x & T4x series devices in use on your 3CX platform have been telling you that the FW version is no longer supported and you need to upgrade.

Yet when you try and upgrade using the 3CX fw upgrade feature it fails. The phone appears to start the upgrade but then reboots and does not upgrade.

The problem specifically is an earlier FW version that users were prompted to upgrade to.

The version in question is xx.83.0.55.

Something broke FW upgrading in this version and phones that found themselves on this version are no longer able to upgrade directly to the latest recommended 3CX FW version.

The fix for this is to manually upgrade the phones to an intermediary version xx.84.0.35 that fixes the FW upgrade issue.

Worth noting that it should also be possible to provision this upgrade to the phones.

After this upgrade the phones will be able to upgrade normally using the 3CX platform.

Helpfully, 3CX have published some guides on how to do this and where you can find the required FW files.

You can find these guides here…..

https://www.3cx.com/sip-phones/yealink-t4-series/#h.7ls0w5vyhlnd

If for any reason you are unable to perform this upgrade manually, let us know, and we may be able to assist you in provisioning this upgrade to your devices.
