Optus Loop is a cloud based Unified Communications (UC) suite of products. It has collaboration tools, allows you to Talk, Chat, have video calls and share files over your desktop. You can use Optus Loop with any compatible device from an Optus IP Handset (Yealink) to your desktop, mobile or tablet device. 

Once your company has purchased the Optus Loop product it needs to be setup specifically for your company and you. Only Optus Loop IP Handsets are pre-configured to connect to the Broadsoft platform. 

What's involved in setting up your Company's Optus Loop system?

Once Optus has completed the initial configuration of your Optus Loop system, there will be an Administrator in your company that will complete your new Optus Loop system setup.

  1. The Administrator will log into the Optus Loop Administrator portal and assign every user in the company a phone number.

  2. As an end user, you will receive 3 emails from Optus. The type of license you are assigned will determine what emails you'll receive.

  3. Each of these emails will advise you of your different Usernames, passwords and links to different softphones and portals you will need to access.

See the table below as to what emails you can expect to receive:

UC & Basic User

Premium & Plus User

A UC & Basic user will receive 3 emails:

  • Email with Username and link to the My Phone Portal
  • Email with a temporary Password
  • Email with Voicemail login details and PIN

A Premium & Plus user will receive 3 emails for UC client:

  • Android/iOS Mobile Email
