The Sonus SBC 1000/2000 automatically downloads configuration files from BroadWorks XSP when a SIP Notify message is received. The configuration files are stored in the BroadWorks Profile server and sent to the subscribed SBC 1000/2000 nodes. The SBC connects to the Broadsoft server and downloads files according to the options configured in the AutoConfiguration setup. Each time the SBC receives a SIP Notify message, the version file is obtained from the XSP and the SBC will be updated if it is running an older version.
The SBC supports configuration file, boot image, and firmware updates. Configuration updates from BroadWorks can be a full configuration update (all configuration imported) or partial configuration update (all configuration imported except networking configuration). The type of configuration is specified in the config_import.txt file, which is downloaded from BroadWorks to the SBC before the actual configuration update.
Before Auto Configuration can take place within the SBC, the BroadWorks Administrator must configure a device profile type through BroadWorks Device Management and BroadWorks provisioning, according to specific data provided by Sonus. See Working with Auto Configuration.
Ensure the following is completed before setting up the Auto Configuration configuration in the SBC.
|Ensure CA Certificates are installed||HTTPS is supported for accessing files from the BroadWorks XSP. The proper certificate Authorities (CA) certificates must be installed on the SBC before enabling Auto Configuration. See Managing Trusted CA Certificates.|
|Obtain Device Type URL||The URL is used to access the configuration file on the BroadWorks XSP. Contact the BroadWorks administrators for the proper URL.|
|Obtain Authentication Details|
User name/password configured by user/administrator and used to access the configuration file on the XSP.
|Identify Signaling Group||Identify Signaling Group within the SBC that will communicate with BroadWorks. See Managing Signaling Groups.|
