How to configure your phone and how to access XML applications with an optiPoint application module or optiPoint display module.

For exploring the XML capabilities you don't have to necessarily set up your own webserver. Just try out one of the XML application samples, residing on one of our public internet servers.


  1. optiPoint 410 standard/ advance or optiPoint 420 standard/ advance with XML enabled Software in HFA environment
  2. optiPoint application module or optiPoint display module must be connected to the telephone
  3. Web-Browser on a LAN-integrated PC

Download XML enabled phone SW

Using XML on your Siemens IP phone requires a CorNet IP Software starting with V5.1.34. CorNet IP 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 Software within the Partner Portal Web portal (login required)

Another option is to register as "Open Developer" at the Technology Partner Website to get XML-enabled phone-SW.

To download the software see Software update optiPoint 410/420 or consult the pdf.png  Administration Manual optiPoint 410-420 family.
