Autoprovision IP phones
How to autoprovision IP phones with Telzio.
Telzio offers auto-provisioning (also known as zero touch provisioning) of IP phones, including Yealink, Grandstream, Cisco, and Polycom. This means that you can configure IP phones via the Telzio Dashboard with just the MAC address of the device.
Additionally, all IP phones bought from Telzio are added to your account when they are shipped from our warehouse, enabling you to configure them before they even arrive so all you need to do is plug them in. This also allows you to ship phones to various locations.
What you’ll need to auto provision a device:
The MAC address of the device
The username to be configured with the device
How to find the MAC address:
If you have purchased the device from Telzio, you will receive an email from us with the MAC address of the device.
If you have an existing device that you want to configure with Telzio, you can find the MAC address labeled on the device itself.

SIP Port - The two SIP Port options are 5060 and 6050. By default, the port is set to 5060 for SIP, and should work for most devices. If the port is blocked, choose 6050 and try again.
Time Format - The available time formats that can be displayed on the phone are 12 hours and 24 hours. By default, the time format is set to 12 hours.
