Introduction

This page describes how to manually upgrade firmware on the M500 base station, M55 handsets, and M58 desksets. 

You can manually update the firmware using the following methods:

  • Retrieving firmware images from a remote host computer via a URL. The file location may be arranged by you, an authorized dealer, or your SIP service provider.  
  • Having firmware images located on your computer or local network. No connection to the Internet is required. Consult your dealer for access to firmware images, or download them from the Snom Firmware Update Center.
