Firmware / Software
The SIP firmware provides encryption capabilities. Hence its distribution must follow legal requirements which do not allow unrestricted SW distribution via the Internet. The firmware is only provided by Siemens technicians or by official Siemens Partners. Customers with self-care contracts will have access to SW within the SEBA Web portal (login required).
The Application software of the OpenStage SIP phones can be transferred to the phone:
- using FTP or HTTPS method.
- using Deployment Service (HiPath DLS V1 R2.21.0 necessary).
- using WBM phone interface (OpenStage SIP V1.0 need the Application software V1 R0.3.1).
Current software releases
The actual Application software is OpenStage 60/80 SIP V1.0 R0.12.2.

The OpenStage Manager is a comprehensive and powerful tool for your OpenStage 60 and OpenStage 80 telephone. The main function of the OpenStage Manager is to serve as an interface between your phone and PC, thus enabling convenient phonebook editing on your PC. OpenStage Manager allows you to synchronize contacts in Microsoft Outlook with the contacts in your telephone.
What do we mean with “deployment”?
The installation of an IP phone in general requires integrating the phone into an IP infrastructure specific to the customer’s or user’s needs. This integration normally requires some activities on all components involved, i.e. on the IP phone and on other components like application servers and routers.
Additionally to the hardware related tasks like providing LAN cables and setting up the necessary power supply, this integration also covers adapting the IP phone to the individual customer configuration by setting various parameters to appropriate values. In this article we will use the term “deployment” for this task, including the provisioning of new software to the IP phone. Sometimes the term “provisioning” is used instead of “deployment”.
Individual phones can be easily set up using the local menue and the keypad or - more comfortable and even remotely - the phone's web administration. Larger companies or voice service providers have to install and maintain hundreds or thousands of phones, requiring mass deployment capabilities.
Mass deployment – how it works
IP terminals offer a range of functions and characteristics that were unknown or technically impossible in analog or early digital system environments (for example, ISDN). But increased product flexibility requires more complex technology. For this reason, it is essential that VoIP devices be optimally configured for users while at the same time expenditure (costs, time, training) must be kept to a minimum for service providers. Different scenarios have different requirements. However the following factors are critical for all solutions:
- Minimum network intervention or modification
- No inflexible or costly preconfiguration at the terminal
- No or minimum (one-off) user activities
There are two main scenarios:
- You can visit the OpenStage Tour from the SIEMENS Enterprise web site.
- You can read the SIEMENS Open Communications News Press Release (December 2006) about the released OpenStage family of SIP phones.
- You can have a look to the whole SIP terminal devices families on www.siemens.com/enterprise web site.
- Siemens won the iF product design award 2007 for its OpenStage phone, OpenStage was awarded at iF awards ceremony of iF product design award 2007 during CeBIT fair last 15.03.2007 in Hannover.
