The telephony application provides the connectivity to a set of CorNet IP features. ???
All optiPoint phones are shipped with a printed document providing brief instruction regarding installation and operation. For both user and administrators, a comprehensive and updated documentation is provided as PDF files. Depending on the system environment, the user may choose between HiPath 2000, BroadSoft and Sylantro specific documentation.
Documentation in other languages than English and for older versions can be found in the download area of the Siemens Siemens HiPath homepage.

Platforms / Systems
Designed as a standards compliant SIP phone (RFC3261), the optiPoint 410/420 S family can be operated in any SIP compliant environment.
For the systems listed below:
- additional documentation is available
- additional testing activities have taken place prior to product release
- additional feature are supported
|Siemens HiPath 2000||Pure IP-Switch||t.b.d.|
|Siemens HiPath 3000/5000||Hybrid Switch/IP-Softswitch||t.b.d.|
|Siemens SURPASS Hosted Office / hiQ 4200 / hiQ8000||IP-Softswitch (carrier grade)||t.b.d.|
|BroadSoft||IP-Softswitch (carrier-grade)||Broadsoft environment|
|Sylantro||IP-Softswitch (carrier grade)||Sylantro environment|
|Asterisk||Open Source IP-Softswitch||Asterisk Guide|
For detailed interoperability information pls check Interoperability matrix optiPoint 410 S / 420 S.
Connectivity to several VoIP providers is supported. For configuration hints see the How To article setting up the optiPoint 410 S/420 S with a VoIP provider.
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.
The firmware of the optiPoint SIP phones comprises two components:
- netboot - This component provides low level features (like Boot process, LAN connectivity). This component is not changed once a phone has been produced and/or is in operation. However, new features may be provided during the ongoing development and production process of the optiPoint phones.
- application - This component contains all features for call handling, signalling, audio control, user interface and language support. It is continuously developed and this takes takes place:
- version based, introducing significant features or feature packages
- update based, introducing limited features or feature enhancements
- based on Software Maintenance Release, providing fault corrections
Application SW can be downloaded to the phone via FTP.

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
For parameters – like the IP address of the proxy to be used, or the terminal number – appropriate values need to be provided to the phone. Usually this should be done automatically to prevent faults and save costs. This can be achieved in two ways:
Add-on devices, Adapters and Accessories
- optiPoint application module
- optiPoint display module (phased-out)
- optiPoint self labelling key module
- optiPoint key module
- optiPoint accoustic adapter
- optiPoint recorder adapter
