We mainly have four kinds of phone book, Local phone book, Remote phone book, LDAP and BroadSoft Directory.

You can make many operations like add new contacts and groups, edit, delete or search for a contact and so on.

But notice it is only used by a specific phone (local phone).

3.      LDAP

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for accessing and maintaining information services for the distributed directory over an IP network.

  The LDAP directory also is placed on a LDAP server, therefore they do not have to maintain the directory locally. Users can search and dial out from the LDAP directory. LDAP entries displayed on the IP phone are read only, which cannot be added, edited or deleted by users. When an LDAP server is properly configured, the IP phone can look up entries from the LDAP server in a wide variety of ways. The LDAP server indexes all the data in its entries, and “filters” can be used to select the desired entry or group, and return the desired information. (The phone don’t need to download phonebook)

Configurations on the IP phone limit the amount of the displayed entries when querying from the LDAP server, and decide how attributes are displayed and sorted.

Note: LDAP feature is not applicable to SIP-T19P and SIP-T20P IP phones.
