This document describes how to find the IP phone firmware load from the
Cisco IP Phone, as well as from a remote location.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
The information in this document is based on these software and
The information in this document was created from the devices in a
specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with

understand the potential impact of any command.
Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document
These conventions are used in naming the IP Phone firmware:
SCCP firmware: P003xxyyzzww.bin: where x represents
the major version, y represents the major subversion, z represents the
maintenance version, and w represents the maintenance subversion.
SIP firmware: P0S3-xx-y-zz: where x represents the
major version, y represents the minor version, and z represents the
MGCP firmware: P0M3-xx-y-zz: where M is the third
character. The major, minor, and subversions for MGCP are consistent with the
SIP naming convention
For Java-based IP phones, the following naming conventions are used for
SCCP firmware: TERMnn.xx-y-z-ww or
SCCPnn.xx-y-zz-ww: where n represents the phone type, x
represents the major version, y represents the major subversion, z represents
the maintenance version, and w represents the maintenance subversion.
Complete these steps in order to view the software versions that the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager offers:
Log in to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration
Navigate to Device > Device Settings > Device
The Device Defaults Configuration list appears. This list shows the
firmware that the IP Phone will load when it registers with CUCM. In this
example, the Cisco 7961 IP Phone will load SCCP41.8-4-1S when it register with
the Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Complete one of these methods in order to find the firmware version of
an IP phone:
You can access the firmware version directly from the phone from the
Press Settings, scroll down, and select
Scroll down, and select Firmware Versions.
This lists the versions of the different kinds of
If the IP Phone is located in a remote location, telnet to the Cisco
switch to which the IP Phone is connected and issue the show cdp
neighbors <module/port> detail
If you know the IP address of the IP Phone, you can access directly
the HTTP interface of the IP Phone.
Open a web browser, and enter http://<ip phone
ip address>/. Where ip phone ip
address is the IP address of the IP
