Auto Provision Gigaset DECT System with Yeastar P-Series Cloud Edition

A DECT system consists of two parts, DECT base station and DECT handsets (namely DECT phones). This topic describes how to provision Gigaset DECT base station with Yeastar P-Series Cloud Edition, so that the Gigaset DECT handsets can be connected to the PBX via the base station, allowing users to utilize the handsets as PBX extensions to make and receive calls.


The firmwares of Gigaset DECT base station and Yeastar PBX meet the following requirements.

Model Phone Requirement PBX Requirement
N870 IP PRO 2.38.1 or later or later
N870 VI PRO 2.38.1 or later or later
N670 IP PRO 2.38.1 or later or later

Maxwell 2 PRO 3.18.1 or later or later
Maxwell 3 PRO 3.18.1 or later or later
Maxwell 4 PRO 3.18.1 or later or later

The device model and firmware version of the Gigaset DECT system used in this example are shown in the table below.

Device Model Firmware Version
Gigaset DECT base station
N870 IP PRO v2.38.1
Gigaset DECT handset
S650H PRO v114.074.04

  • Make sure that there is only one DHCP server running in the subnet where the Gigaset DECT system (base station and handset) is deployed, or the base station would fail to obtain an IP address.
  • Make sure that you have downloaded the template for the desired phone model (Path: Auto Provisioning > Resource Repository > Default Templates).
  • Gather information of the Gigaset DECT base station, including Vendor, Model, and MAC address.

Step 1. Add the Gigaset DECT base station on PBX

Add the DECT base station on PBX. The PBX will generate a configuration file based on the device's MAC address.
  1. Log in to PBX web portal, go to Auto Provisioning > Phones.
  2. Click Add > Add.
  3. In the IP Phone section, enter the following information.

    • Vendor: Select Gigaset.
    • Model: Select the device model. In this example, select Gigaset N870 IP PRO.
    • MAC Address: Enter the MAC address of the DECT base station.
  4. In the Options section, configure the following settings.

    • Template: Select a desired template from the drop-down list.
      Note: You can select the default template corresponding to the phone model, or customize your own template. For more information, see Create a Custom Auto Provisioning Template.
    • Provisioning Link: A provisioning link is automatically generated, which points to the location where the phone's configuration file is stored.
  5. In the Assign Extension section, assign extensions for the DECT handsets.
    • To assign extensions one by one, select the checkbox of the corresponding handset, then select the desired extension in the Extension drop-down list.

    • To assign extensions in bulk, set the extension range in Start Extension and End Extension, then click Assign Extension.

    In this example, assign extension 1000 to Handset 1 and extension 3000 to Handset 2.

    Tip: If your desired extension is not listed in the drop-down list, it indicates that the extension has been associated with an IP phone.
  6. Optional: Configure other settings according to your needs.

  7. Click Save.

    The DECT base station is added to the PBX, and displayed in the Auto Provisioning phone list; The PBX will send an event notification of RPS Request Success.

    Tip: You can click in front of the DECT base station to see the extensions assigned to the DECT handsets.

Step 2. Enable dynamic IP setting for Gigaset DECT base station

On the DECT base station, use the device button to change the device role, so that the base station can obtain an IP address from a DHCP server in the subnet.
  1. Press and hold the device button for at least 10 seconds until both LEDs switch off, then release the button.

    The device is now in programming mode.

  2. Short press the device button until both LEDs become blue, then release the button.

    The device role is switched to Integrator/DECT Manager with dynamic IP setting enabled.

  3. Press and hold the device button until both LEDs turn red, then release the button.

    The base station is reset, and it takes several minutes for the device to boot up with the selected device role; After booted up, the device gets an IP address from the DHCP server and automatically downloads configurations from the PBX.

Step 3. Register the Gigaset DECT handsets to the DECT base station

Enable the registration mode of DECT base station and confirm the registration on DECT handsets, so that the Gigaset DECT handsets can be registered to the DECT base station.
  1. Log in to the web interface of DECT base station.

    1. In the browser's address bar, enter the IP address of the base station.
    2. Enter the username admin and the default password admin.
    3. Click Login.
  2. Change the default password, select a radio frequency band, then click Set.
    Note: For the DECT radio band, select the radio frequency band used in your region.

    You are redirected to the web interface of the DECT base station.

  3. Under the SETTINGS tab, go to Mobile devices > Administration, click to edit a handset with an extension assigned.

    1. In the RegStatus drop-down list, select To register.

    2. In the Authentication Code (PIN) field, set and note down a PIN code, which will be used on handset later for registration.

      In this example, use the default PIN code 0000.

    3. Scroll down to the bottom, click Register now.

  4. Repeat the above steps to edit other handsets with extensions assigned until all the handsets are in To register status.
  5. Go to Mobile devices > Registration Centre > DECT Managers, complete the following settings.

    1. In the Registration duration section, set how long the DECT base station should stay in registration mode.

  6. Confirm registration on DECT handset.
    1. On the handset, go to Menu > Settings > Registration > Register Handset.

      The DECT handset starts to search for a base station that is in registration mode. When it finds the base station, there is a prompt asking you to enter a system PIN.

    2. Enter the PIN code obtained from the base station, and press OK.


  • The handsets are successfully registered to the DECT base station, and associated with the assigned PBX extensions via the base station.
    • On the web interface of DECT base station, you can check the registration status of the handsets on SETTINGS > Mobile devices > Administration.

    • On PBX web portal, you can check the registration status of the extensions on Auto Provisioning > Phones.
