Customising network settings on the Mitel UC360 to suit the preferences of your business could not be simpler and takes next to no time to complete.
How to start
Before you begin, however, it must be noted that, if installing with a MiVoice Business/MCD, it may be easier to use static VLAN and QoS values by entering the information into the UC360 Network Settings manually.
Whereas, if you implement a DHCP server to provide these values to the Mitel Conference Phone, it’s likely that the 3300/MCD DHCP server may not support a field defining L2 and L3 QoS values for Multimedia conferencing, in which case static programming is required.
By selecting Settings>Advanced>System Settings>Network Settings, you will be given the following options:
- View Current
- Modify Static
- 802.x Protocol
With the Tools and Features tab, you are able to activate or deactivate a number of network-related protocols including DHCP, CDP, LLDP and Firewall Filter (enabling all of these options is strongly recommended).
Enabling the VLAN protocol will activate VLAN tagging information to be obtained from various sources and, if you wish for authentication to be performed before allowing network access, it is recommended you enable the 802.1x protocol, too!
