SIP Network Element

The SIP Network Element authorizes the 2020 IMG to register with a SIP User Agent (gateway) or SIP User Agent Client (SIP Phone or softphone application). When configuring a SIP network using the 2020 IMG, configure a SIP Network Element with each SIP entity the 2020 IMG needs to register with. This object enables the 2020 IMG to send out a SIP Registration for Authentication to a SIP network entity that has outbound registration enabled. All the SIP gateways and SIP endpoints will be displayed in the drop down menu of the SIP Network Element field.

The Main SIP Signaling object has a Default SIP Authentication UserName and Default SIP Authentication Password field where a username and password can be entered. The username and password fields in this object are used as a blanket username and password for all SIP elements within the network and will automatically be entered in the SIP Network Element Username and Password fields. If however, the SIP Network Element being configured has different credentials, those credentials must be entered in the SIP Authentication UserName and SIP Authentication Password fields within the SIP Network Element fields. These credentials will override the credentials configured in the main SIP Signaling object.

Note: To register the 2020 IMG, press the Register button located beneath the SIP Network Element object. If 2020 IMG is re-configured, the 2020 IMG will need to be re-registered by pressing the Register button again.
