So you could get half-way there by just sticking an XML file on a local HTTP server and point them to that. You would be able to configure probably 95% of the settings in a common file and then manually go through to update the programmable keys and SIP registrations as required.


If you have the internal resource to do this then it isn't a terrible solution. But it is where you can come unstuck when wanting to "push an update" that. But again, you will probably find that a hell of a lot of the settings will be common across all the handsets.

Do you need physical phone units for any particular reasons? If they are desk users with PC's then I would say look at soft-phones if you want to go cloud hosted.


Something like Digital Island's Telepo solution (  - just need some decent USB headsets. Also works from mobile devices so good if you have mobile users also.

How about Lync? / Skype for Business, this is now PSTN connected isn't it?


Anyone using or familiar with this?
