Requirements

Identifying Device Model

To start and successfully complete registration of your Snom device, you need to know which device model to set up.

On the back of each Snom device, there is model information that you should check. Although various device models can have exactly the same requirements and installation procedures, they can also have significantly different requirements and installation procedures, so that is why it is important to know the model you own which results in you setting up the device successfully.

Device Firmware

Make sure that your device is loaded with an appropriate firmware version, 8.7.5.75.

DHCP Server

Fully configured and operational DHCP server.
