Signing Up

Signing up for BYOD is relatively straightforward, but I ended up having an unnecessarily difficult installation due to somewhat unusual circumstances. But this turned out to be a good thing, since I got to experience more aspects of the BYOD process than I probably would have. I started by going to the Sign-Up section of the BroadVoice website and making the selection shown in Figure 8.

The next screen prompted me to select a device (Figure 9). Selecting anything other than Not Listed (Generic SIP) changes the screen to reveal a MAC address entry box where that VoIP adapter's information can be entered.

BroadVoice uses the MAC address both as an account control mechanism and to generate a configuration file for supported devices that you can download to automatically set up your hardware. But since I didn't have a device yet, I had to select the "generic" option, which changed the page to reveal an "OS, Vendor or Model" entry box that I also wasn't able to fill out.

Tip Tip: BroadVoice supplied this list of supported devices that can be auto-configured. Note that not all of these may appear in the sign-up drop-down list:

  • Aastra 480i
  • AudioCodes MP104, MP108, and MP124
  • Cisco 79xx, ATA186 and ATA188
  • Grandstream 100, 101, 102, 286, 486 and 488
  • Motorola VT1000
  • Panasonic TGP100
  • Pulver WiSIP
  • Siemens optiPoint 400
  • Sipura 841, 1000, 1001, 2000, 2001, and 3000
  • Snom 190
  • Uniden DTA200 and UIP200
  • UTStarcom F1000

    The following devices are also supported, but can't auto-configured:
