Configure SNOM PA1 for Lync 2010

SNOM PA1 is a really easy to configure device that works out of the box with Lync as a PA system.

What you will need:-
The UC Edition of the SNOM PA1 Firmware
A Lync account that will be used by the snom device…aaahh thats it!

This little puppy ONLY works if your auto login is functioning (ie SRV records)
Update- This was on older versions of the PA1 firmware

How to configure the device:-

1. Power up the snom PA1, wait until the call LED lights up

2. Connect speakers to the device, I connected a speaker directly to the terminals as the image below shows

3. Press the IP Reset button and a friendly lady tells you your IP Address 🙂
4. Navigate to the URL https:\\ and click on the UC Account Data button

5. The device can have up to 4 different Lync Accounts, for simplicity I configured just the one. Enter the Lync PA user details and Apply

6. From your own Lync Communicator you can now look up the Lync PA user and simply call it from Lync to make a PA Announcement.

Once configured the device will request a login username and password next time you go to the URL, I had to factory reset the device each time I needed to change the Lync Account details. Bit of a bugger but since you only configure it once I suppose its ok.

Factory Reset
Press and hold the IP Reset button until both LED’s go off.
Now reboot the device.

Tweaking the PA1
Adjusting the Speaker Volume (1-14) default is 10.

Still looking at how to set the HTTP password and change the PA announce tone

About Paul B

My name is Paul Bloem and I am employed at Lexel Systems in New Zealand as a Principal Consultant for Unified Communications. I have been working on enterprise voice solutions for over 20 years. My first 10 years were spent working for a Telco in South Africa (Telcom SA). This is where all the groundwork happened as I was exposed to just about every aspect of telecommunication you could imagine. I develop an interest in PBX technologies and eventually became the go-to guy. Next, I had a 10 year run at Siemens South Africa, most of my time there was as a Technical Trainer. During this time VoIP hit the world stage, I had the privilege of introducing VoIP both as H.323 and later SIP across the Siemens HiPath 4000 solution stack. In 2008 I immigrated to New Zealand with my newly attained MCSE, I was ready to go where no PBX Techie had gone before. I was employed to explore OCS 2007 and that was pretty much the beginning of the end for me. I have been working on OCS and Lync ever since. My current role focuses exclusively on Lync and associated technologies.. That includes pre-sales, consulting, architecture and design, training and support. I even get to play in the development space from time to time - focus on play ;-) I was nominated as a Microsoft VTSP for Lync early in 2013 and also awarded Microsoft's MVP award for Lync in 2014.
