Plugging in and setting up the system automatically

Each Dolby Voice Room requires a wired network connection, preferably supporting PoE. Once your system is plugged in, many settings may be automatically detected.

Prerequisites

The Dolby Voice Room requires 13 W of power to be delivered over the LAN cable. If your Ethernet LAN switch ports do not support PoE, you will need a PoE injector (not supplied) for each system.

Procedure

  1. Plug in the system.

    If the customer network is already set up with either DHCP option 66 or DNS SRV record, the system automatically detects the presence of Dolby Conferencing Console or a provisioning server, which saves you having to manually enter data.

    If the customer network is not set up, you see this screen:

    Auto discovery screen

  2. Select Manual setup, and follow the screen prompts if automatic discovery is not available on the customer network.
  3. Connect the system to a PoE Ethernet port on the network using an Ethernet cable.

    The setup wizard appears on the system. The screens vary depending on your network setup.

  4. If the system has Internet access and can connect to the Dolby Voice Console and your conferencing service provider's provisioning service:

    This only happens if you meet the requirements for plug and play setup.

    Requirements for plug and play setup vary based on your conferencing service provider. For a list of requirements, see the configuration guide for your conferencing service provider.

    • If the system is recognized by the Dolby Voice Console, the system connects to your conferencing service provider's provisioning service. No additional action is required to provision the system.BT welcome screen

    • If the system is not recognized by the Dolby Voice Console, select your conferencing service provider from the list. Follow the on-screen prompts to connect the system to your conferencing service provider's provisioning service.

    If this does not happen, proceed to the next step.

  5. If the system discovers a Dolby Conferencing Console or a provisioning server on your network, follow the on-screen prompts to connect the system to one of these provisioning servers.

    This only happens if the system's administrator completed preparations so that the system can discover the presence of a Dolby Conferencing Console or a provisioning server by means of a DNS SRV record.

    If this does not happen, proceed to the next step.

  6. If you cannot set up the system with the methods mentioned earlier, you must perform Manual Setup.
    1. Choose Manual setup from this screen:
      Auto discovery screen
    2. Follow the on-screen prompts to connect the system to your Dolby Conferencing Console or provisioning server.

Results

The system is now connected to either your conferencing service provider's provisioning service, or a Dolby Conferencing Console or a provisioning that is on your network.
