Snom M900 supports from the Firmware Version 510B1 XML Based contexts, which can be configured for the handsets.

The built-in XML Browser (Minibrowser) can interpreted different XML Files, which are extending the functions of the phone with a custom designed one. Such  XML Files may contain either Menu, Phonebook or Input for further processing. This Files are stored on an HTTP Server where the base station can access them.

In a Multicell environment the XML File is fetched by the Base Station where the Handset is currently registered.

Configuration of the XML Server on a Base Station

  • Configuration is placed under the main Menu "Central Directory", as Location choose XML Minibrowser Server

  • Configure Filename and Server according to your environment.
    The configured Filename will be the first file which is called by the Handset once the user presses the middle button on the Handset.
