The Snom C520 SIP conference phone uses Bluetooth® and DECT 6.0 technology for frustration-free calls and meetings. The system serves as a personal workspace device, eliminating the need for a separate deskset and conference phone. Connect your cell phone, or pair a Bluetooth or DECT headset with the speakerphone for hands-free and/or private calls. The C520 can go beyond the office, and work in any-size conference room. The system—with one fixed built-in mic and two wireless mics can support nine or more active participants in a small conference room. Or, it can easily scale up with the accessory C52-SP DECT expansion speakerphone to handle 27 or more active participants. Now, you can clearly hear, and spread out and speak without shouting.

  1. Click on the Menu button of the phone.

  2. Scroll down to Status and select Network . You can find the IP address here. Take note of it. You'll need it for the next step.

  3. From a computer on the same network as the phone, open a web browser and enter http:// followed by the IP address you just obtained into the browser's address bar.

  3. In this account management screen, find the General section and provide the following information:

      1. Caller ID Name should be in capital letters. This will appears more clearly/visible on some devices.

      2. You must NOT use any special characters, as they will not be displayed. Spaces are allowed.

    4. Authentication Name: Your Telnyx account ID

    5. Authentication Password: Your Telnyx account password

    6. Dial Plan: x+P (By default)
