Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Inventory

The CPE inventory allows you to keep track of end user devices (SIP phones, SIP ATAs, etc.) which are distributed to your customers. You will assign a profile that defines general configuration settings for each device (preferred codecs, address of the SIP server, etc). You can then assign a specific account (representing a phone number) to a specific port (phone line) on an CPE. PortaBilling® will create a config file for auto-provisioning all of your devices, thus allowing you to easily and remotely manage thousands of user devices.
