Avaya (Nortel) 1120E IP Phone with Asterisk

I got a hold of some Nortel IP phones at work and was doing some reaserch on how to connect them to an Asterisk server. At first I was using them with the UNIStim protocol support in Asterisk, but instead found out that you can download SIP firmware versions for most Nortel and Avaya phones directly from Avaya since they purchased Nortel.

You can get the SIP 4.x firmware here, or browse the other firmwares as well. You do not need a username and password to download them.

This site can help as well, to get you updated to a SIP firmware from UNIStim firmware and how to configure your TFTP settings.

I needed some more configuration settings in my TFTP DeviceConfig file so this is what I ended up using.
