Cisco Unified IP Phone Configuration


Cisco Unified IP Phones as full-featured telephones can plug directly into your IP network. You use the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Phone Configuration window to configure the following Cisco Unified IP Phones and devices:

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7900 family

Cisco Unified IP Phone model 30 VIP

Cisco Unified IP Phone model 12 SP+

H.323 clients

Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) ports

Cisco IP Communicator

Cisco ATA 186 and Cisco ATA 188 telephone adapter

Cisco VG248 ports (analog phones)


Note You configure the Cisco VG248 gateway from the Gateway Configuration window of Cisco Unified CallManager Administration. From this window, you configure the gateway analog phone ports (doing this takes you to the Phone Configuration window). When you want to update the VG248 ports, use the Phone Configuration window. The following procedures apply to update or delete this phone type. See the "Gateway Configuration" section for Cisco VG248 Gateway configuration information.


After you add a Cisco Unified IP Phone to Cisco Unified CallManager Administration, the Phone Configuration window shows information from the RIS Data Collector service. When available, the IP address of the device and the name of the Cisco Unified CallManager with which the device registered display.

The following topics provide information about working with and configuring Cisco Unified IP Phones in Cisco Unified CallManager Administration:

Configuring Cisco Unified IP Phones

You can automatically add phones to the Cisco Unified CallManager database by using auto-registration, manually add phones by using the phone configuration windows, or add phones in groups with the Cisco Bulk Administration Tool (BAT).

By enabling auto-registration, you can automatically add a Cisco Unified IP Phone to the Cisco Unified CallManager database when you connect the phone to your IP telephony network. During auto-registration, Cisco Unified CallManager assigns the next available sequential directory number to the phone. In many cases, you might not want to use auto-registration; for example, if you want to assign a specific directory number to a phone.


Note Cisco recommends using auto-registration in small configurations or testing labs only. If you configure the clusterwide security mode to secure mode, Cisco Unified CallManager disables auto-registration.


If you do not use auto-registration, you must manually add phones to the Cisco Unified CallManager database or use BAT. BAT, a plug-in application, makes it possible for system administrators to perform batch add, modify, and delete operations on large numbers of Cisco Unified IP Phones. Refer to the Bulk Administration Tool User Guide for detailed instructions on using BAT.

After you add a Cisco Unified IP Phone to Cisco Unified CallManager Administration, the RIS Data Collector service displays the device name, registration status, and the IP address of the Cisco Unified CallManager to which the phone is registered in the Phone Configuration window.

For information on how to configure phones as well as H.323 clients, CTI ports, and other devices from Cisco Unified CallManager Administration, see the following topics:

Displaying the MAC Address of a Phone

The Media Access Control (MAC) address comprises a unique, 12-character, hexadecimal number that identifies a Cisco Unified IP Phone or other hardware device. Locate the number on a label on the bottom of the phone (for example, 000B6A409C405 for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7900 family models or SS-00-0B-64-09-C4-05 for Cisco Unified IP Phone models SP 12+ and 30 VIP). Cisco Unified CallManager makes the MAC address a required field for Cisco Unified IP Phone device configuration. When entering the MAC address in Cisco Unified CallManager fields, do not use spaces or dashes and do not include the "SS" that may precede the MAC address on the label.

For more information on displaying the MAC Address or additional configuration settings on Cisco Unified IP Phones, refer to the Cisco Unified IP Phone Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CallManager that supports the phone model. To display the MAC address for the Cisco Unified IP Phone model 12 Series and Cisco Unified IP Phone model 30 Series phones or the Cisco VG248 Gateway, perform the following tasks:

Cisco Unified IP Phone Models 12 (SP +) Series and 30 Series (VIP)—Press ** to display the MAC address on the second line of the LCD display.

Cisco VG248 phone ports—The MAC address specifies the endpoint from the Gateway Configuration window of Cisco Unified CallManager Administration. See the "Gateway Configuration" section for configuration information.

Cisco IP Communicator—Get the MAC address from the network interface of the client PC on which you want to install the Cisco IP Communicator application.

Device Information

MAC Address

Enter the Media Access Control (MAC) address that identifies Cisco Unified IP Phones (hardware phones only). Make sure that the value comprises 12 hexadecimal characters.

For information on how to access the MAC address for your phone, refer to the Cisco Unified IP Phone Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CallManager that supports your phone model.

Cisco VG248 Analog Phone Gateway

The MAC address for the Cisco VG248 gateway specifies the endpoint from the Gateway Configuration window of Cisco Unified CallManager Administration. See the "Gateway Configuration" section for configuration information.

Only one MAC address exists for the Cisco VG248 Analog Phone Gateway. All 48 ports share the same MAC address. Cisco Unified CallManager requires unique MAC addresses for all devices.

Cisco Unified CallManager converts the MAC Address for each device by

Dropping the first two digits of the MAC Address

Shifting the MAC address two places to the left

Adding the two-digit port number to the end of the MAC address (to the right of the number)

EXAMPLE
MAC Address for the Cisco VG248 is
000039A44218
the MAC address for registered port 12 in the
Cisco Unified CallManager is
0039A4421812

From the drop-down list box, choose the appropriate calling search space (CSS). A calling search space comprises a collection of partitions that are searched to determine how a dialed number should be routed. The calling search space for the device and the calling search space for the directory number get used together. The directory number CSS takes precedence over the device CSS. For more information, refer to Partitions and Calling Search Spaces in the Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide.

For configuration information about calling search space for phones, see the "Calling Search Space" section.

AAR Calling Search Space

Choose the appropriate calling search space for the device to use when it performs automated alternate routing (AAR). The AAR calling search space specifies the collection of route partitions that are searched to determine how to route a collected (originating) number that is otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth. For configuration information about calling search space for phones, see the "Calling Search Space" section.

Media Resource Group List

Choose the appropriate Media Resource Group List. A Media Resource Group List comprises a prioritized grouping of media resource groups. An application chooses the required media resource, such as a Music On Hold server, from the available media resources according to the priority order that is defined in a Media Resource Group List.

If you choose <none>, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the Media Resource Group that is defined in the device pool.

For more information, see the "Media Resource Management" section in the Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide.

User Hold Audio Source

To specify the audio source that plays when a user initiates a hold action, click the drop-down arrow and choose an audio source from the list.

If you do not choose an audio source, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the audio source that is defined in the device pool or the system default if the device pool does not specify an audio source ID.

Note You define audio sources in the Music On Hold Audio Source Configuration window. For access, choose Service > Music On Hold.

Network Hold Audio Source

To specify the audio source that is played when the network initiates a hold action, click the drop-down arrow and choose an audio source from the list.

If you do not choose an audio source, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the audio source that is defined in the device pool or the system default if the device pool does not specify an audio source ID.

Note You define audio sources in the Music On Hold Audio Source Configuration window. For access, choose Service > Music On Hold.

Location

Choose the appropriate location for this Cisco Unified IP Phone. The location specifies the total bandwidth that is available for calls to and from this location. A location setting of None means that the locations feature does not keep track of the bandwidth that this Cisco Unified IP Phone consumes.

AAR Group

Choose the automated alternate routing (AAR) group for this device. The AAR group provides the prefix digits that are used to route calls that are otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth. If no AAR group is specified, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the AAR group that is associated with Device Pool or Line.

User Locale

From the drop-down list box, choose the locale that is associated with the phone user interface. The user locale identifies a set of detailed information to support users, including language and font.

Cisco Unified CallManager makes this field available only for phone models that support localization.

Note If no user locale is specified, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the user locale that is associated with the device pool.

Note If the users require information to be displayed (on the phone) in any language other than English, verify that the locale installer is installed before configuring user locale. Refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Locale Installer documentation.

Network Locale

From the drop-down list box, choose the locale that is associated with the phone. The network locale contains a definition of the tones and cadences that the phone in a specific geographic area uses.

Cisco Unified CallManager makes this field available only for phone models that support localization.

Note If no network locale is specified, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the network locale that is associated with the device pool.

Note If users require country-specific tones to be played (on the phone), verify that the locale is installed before configuring the network locale. Refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Locale Installer documentation.

Device Security Mode

This field displays only if the phone model supports authentication or encryption. From the drop-down list box, choose the mode that you want to set for the device:

Use System Default—The phone uses the value that you specified for the enterprise parameter, Device Security Mode.

Non-secure—No security features exist for the phone. A TCP connection opens to Cisco Unified CallManager.

Authenticated—Cisco Unified CallManager provides integrity and authentication for the phone. A TLS connection using NULL/SHA opens.

Encrypted—Cisco Unified CallManager provides integrity, authentication, and encryption for the phone. A TLS connection using AES128/SHA opens.

Tip The options in the drop-down box display only if the phone model supports the device security mode. If the phone model does not support encryption, then the option does not display.

Signal Packet Capture Mode

This setting exists for troubleshooting encryption only; packet capturing may cause high CPU usage or call-processing interruptions. Choose one of the following options from the drop-down list box:

Real-Time Mode—Cisco Unified CallManager sends decrypted or nonencrypted messages over a secure channel to analyzing devices. A TLS connection opens between Cisco Unified CallManager and the debugging tool (IREC). After authentication occurs, Cisco Unified CallManager sends the SCCP messages to all connected real-time debugging tools; this action occurs only for the chosen devices where you configured packet capturing.

This mode eliminates sniffing over the network.

Batch Processing Mode—Cisco Unified CallManager writes the decrypted or nonencrypted messages to file, and the system encrypts each file. On a daily basis, the system creates a new file with a new encryption key. Cisco Unified CallManager, which stores the file for seven days, also stores the keys that encrypt the file in a secure location. Cisco Unified CallManager stores the file in C:\Program Files\Cisco\PktCap. A single file contains the time stamp, source IP address, destination IP address, SCCP message length, and the SCCP message.The debugging tool uses HTTPS, administrator username and password, and the specified day to request a single encrypted file that contains the captured packets. Likewise, the tool requests the key information to decrypt the encrypted compressed file.

Tip For more information on these options, refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Security Guide.

Packet Capture Duration

This setting exists for troubleshooting encryption only; packet capturing may cause high CPU usage or call-processing interruptions.

This field specifies the maximum number of minutes that is allotted for one session of packet capturing. The default equals 60.

Built In Bridge

Enable or disable the built-in conference bridge for the barge feature by using the Built In Bridge drop-down list box (choose On, Off, or Default).


Note Cisco Unified IP Phone models 7940 and 7960 cannot support two media stream encryptions or SRTP streams simultaneously. To prevent instability due to this condition, the system automatically disables the built-in bridge for models 7940 and 7960 when the device security mode is set to encrypted.


For more configuration information, refer to Barge, Privacy, and Privacy on Hold in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide. You can also refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Security Guide for more information.

Privacy

For each phone that wants Privacy, choose On in the Privacy drop-down list box. For more configuration information, refer to Barge, Privacy, and Privacy on Hold in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide.

Device Mobility Mode

Turn the device mobility feature on or off for this device.

Click View Current Settings to display the current values of these device mobility parameters:

Cisco Unified CallManager Group

SRST

For more configuration information, refer to Cisco Unified CallManager Device Mobility in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide.

Signaling Port

This field applies only to H.323 devices. The value designates the H.225 signaling port that this device uses.

Default value specifies 1720. Valid values range from 1 to 65535.

Retry Video Call as Audio

This check box applies only to video endpoints that receive a call. If this phone receives a call that does not connect as video, the call tries to connect as an audio call.

By default, the system checks this check box to specify that this device should immediately retry a video call as an audio call (if it cannot connect as a video call) prior to sending the call to call control for rerouting.

If you uncheck this check box, a video call that fails to connect as video does not try to establish as an audio call. The call then fails to call control, and call control routes the call via automatic alternate routing (AAR) and/or route/hunt list.

Ignore Presentation Indicators (internal calls only)

Check this check box to configure call display restrictions on a call-by-call basis. When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified CallManager ignores any presentation restriction that is received for internal calls.

Use this configuration in combination with the calling line ID presentation and connected line ID presentation configuration at the translation pattern level. Together, these settings allow you to configure call display restrictions to selectively present or block calling and/or connected line display information for each call.

See Table 27-1 in the "Translation Pattern Configuration Settings" section for more information about the calling line ID presentation and the connected line ID presentation parameters.

For more information about call display restrictions, refer to the Call Display Restrictions chapter in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide.

Logged into Hunt Group

This check box, which gets checked by default for all phones, indicates that the phone is currently logged in to a hunt list (group). When the phone gets added to a hunt list, the administrator can log the user in or out by checking (and unchecking) this check box.

Users use the softkey on the phone to log their phone in or out of the hunt list.

Remote Device

If you are experiencing delayed connect times over SCCP pipes to remote sites, check the Remote Device check box in the Phone Configuration window. Checking this check box tells Cisco Unified CallManager to allocate a buffer for the phone device when it registers and to bundle SCCP messages to the phone.

Tip Because this feature consumes resources, be sure to check this box only when you are experiencing signaling delays for SCCP phones. This option is not required by most users.

Cisco Unified CallManager sends the bundled messages to the phone when the station buffer is full, as soon as it receives a media-related message, or when the Bundle Outbound SCCP Messages timer expires.

To specify a setting other than the default setting (100 msec) for the Bundle Outbound SCCP Messages timer, configure a new value for the cluster in the Service Parameters Configuration window for the Cisco Unified CallManager service. Although 100 msec specifies the recommended setting, you may enter 15 msec to 500 msec.

The phone must support SCCP version 9 to use this option. The following phones do not support SCCP message optimization: Cisco Unified IP Phone models 7935/7936. This feature requires a phone reset after update.

Wait for Far End H.245 Terminal Capability Set

This field applies only to H.323 devices.

This check box specifies that Cisco Unified CallManager waits to receive the far-end H.245 Terminal Capability Set before it sends its H.245 Terminal Capability Set. By default, the system checks this box. To specify that Cisco Unified CallManager should initiate capabilities exchange, uncheck this check box.

Phone Button Template Information

Phone Button Template

Choose the appropriate phone button template. The phone button template determines the configuration of buttons on a phone and identifies which feature (line, speed dial, and so on) is used for each button.

Cisco Unified CallManager does not make this field available for H.323 clients or CTI ports.

Media Termination Point Required

Indicate whether a media termination point (MTP) is used to implement features that H.323 does not support (such as hold and transfer).

Check the Media Termination Point Required check box if you want to use a media termination point to implement features. Uncheck the Media Termination Point Required check box if you do not want to use a media termination point to implement features.

Use this check box only for H.323 clients and those H.323 devices that do not support the H.245 empty capabilities set or if you want media streaming to terminate through a single source.

If you check this check box to require an MTP and this device becomes the endpoint of a video call, the call will be audio only.

Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) Information

MLPP Domain

Enter a hexadecimal value between 0 and FFFFFF for the MLPP domain that is associated with this device. If you leave this field blank, this device inherits its MLPP domain from the value that is set for the device pool of the device. If the device pool does not have an MLPP domain setting, this device inherits its MLPP domain from the value that is set for the MLPP Domain Identifier enterprise parameter.

MLPP Indication

Active

To view this check box on the Directory Number Configuration window, access an unassigned directory number from the Route Plan Report window. Checking this check box allows calls to this DN to be forwarded (if forwarding is configured). If check box is not checked, Cisco Unified CallManager ignores the DN.

Update Directory Number of All Devices Sharing This Line

Use this check box for shared line directory numbers only. Check this check box to change the directory number of all devices that share this directory number. Leave this check box unchecked to only change the directory number or partition for this device (the other devices that share this directory number will remain unchanged).

Directory Number Settings

Voice Mail Profile

Choose from list of Voice Mail Profiles that are defined in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration.

The first option specifies <None>, which is the current default Voice Mail Profile that is configured in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration.

Calling Search Space

From the drop-down list box, choose the appropriate calling search space. The value that you choose applies to all devices that are using this directory number. See the "Calling Search Space" section.

You can configure calling search spaces for Forward All, Forward Busy, Forward No Answer, and Forward on Failure directory numbers.

If you set the Forward All Calling Search Space field to <None>, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the calling search spaces of the line and the phone when the user forwards calls by using the Cisco Unified IP Phone User Options windows or the CFwdAll softkey on the phone.

To restrict users from forwarding calls on their phones, choose a restrictive calling search space from the Forward All Calling Search Space field; for example, if you have two calling search spaces: Building and PSTN. The Building calling search space only allows users to call within the building while the PSTN calling search space allows users to call within and outside the building. Assign the phone to the Building calling search space and the line on your phone to the PSTN calling search space.

If you set the Call Forward All calling search space to <None>, Cisco Unified CallManager can forward calls to any number within the PSTN or Building calling search spaces. To prevent the user from forwarding calls to numbers outside the building, set the Call Forward All calling search space to Building.

For more information, refer to Partitions and Calling Search Spaces, in the Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide.

User Hold Audio Source

Choose the audio source that plays when a user initiates a hold action.

Network Hold Audio Source

Choose the audio source that plays when the network initiates a hold action.

Choose one of the following options to activate the Auto Answer feature for this directory number:

Auto Answer Off <Default>

Auto Answer with Headset

Auto Answer with Speakerphone (Intercom)

Note Make sure that the headset or speakerphone is not disabled when you choose Auto Answer with headset or Auto Answer with speakerphone.

Note Do not configure Auto Answer for devices that have shared lines.

AAR Settings

AAR

The settings in this row of fields specify treatment of calls for which insufficient bandwidth exists to reach the destination. Automated alternate routing (AAR) handles these calls that are routed to the AAR Destination Mask or Voice Mail.

Specify the following values:

Voice Mail—Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

Note When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified CallManager ignores the settings in the Coverage/Destination box and Calling Search Space.

AAR Destination Mask—Use this setting instead of the external phone number mask to determine the AAR Destination to be dialed.

AAR Group —This setting provides the prefix digits that are used to route calls that are otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth. An AAR group setting of None specifies that no rerouting of blocked calls will be attempted.

AAR Keep Call History—This field determines whether the AAR leg of the call will be present in the Call Forwarding History.

If you choose "Remove this destination from the call forwarding history," the AAR leg of the call is not present in the call history.

If you choose "Retain this destination in the call forwarding history," the AAR leg of the call will be present in the Call History.

By default, the directory number configuration retains the AAR leg of the call in the call history, which ensures that the AAR forward to voice-messaging system will prompt the user to leave a voice message.

Call Forward and Pickup Settings

Forward All

The settings in this row of fields specify the forwarding treatment for calls to this directory number if the directory number is set to forward all calls. The Calling Search Space field gets used to validate the Forward All destination that is entered when the user activates Call Forward All from the phone.

Enter a name that you want to display on the phone of the caller.

This setting, which supports the Identification Services for the QSIG protocol, applies to shared and nonshared directory numbers. If you configure an alerting name for a directory number with shared-line appearances, when the phone rings at the terminating PINX, the system performs the following tasks:

Forwards the name of the caller that is assigned to the directory number.

Applies the Connected Name Restrictions (CONR) that are configured for the translation pattern (if restrictions exist); the originating PINX may modify the CONR, depending on the route pattern configuration.

If you do not configure an alerting name, "Name Not Available" may display on the caller phone. If you do not enter a name for the Display (Internal Caller ID) field, the information in the Alerting Name field displays in the Display (Internal Caller ID) field.

Hold Reversion Duration

Enter a number from 0 to 1200 (inclusive) to specify the wait time in seconds before issuing a reverted call alert to the holding party's phone.

Line Settings for This Device

Display (Internal Caller ID)

Leave this field blank to have the system display the extension.

Use a maximum of 30 alphanumeric characters. Typically, use the user name or the directory number (if using the directory number, the person who is receiving the call may not see the proper identity of the caller).

Setting applies only to the current device unless you check the check box at right and click the Propagate selected button. (The check box at right displays only if other devices share this directory number.)

Line Text Label

Use this field only if you do not want the directory number to show on the line appearance. Enter text that identifies this directory number for a line/phone combination.

Suggested entries include boss name, department name, or other appropriate information to identify multiple directory numbers to secretary/assistant who monitors multiple directory numbers.

Setting applies only to the current device unless you check the check box at right (called Update Shared Device Settings) and click the Propagate selected button. (The check box at right displays only if other devices share this directory number.)

External Phone Number Mask

Indicate phone number (or mask) that is used to send Caller ID information when a call is placed from this line.

You can enter a maximum of 24 number and "X" characters. The Xs represent the directory number and must appear at the end of the pattern. For example, if you specify a mask of 972813XXXX, an external call from extension 1234 displays a caller ID number of 9728131234.

Setting applies only to the current device unless you check the check box at right (called Update Shared Device Settings) and click the Propagate selected button. (The check box at right displays only if other devices share this directory number.)

Multiple Call/Call Waiting Settings

Maximum Number of Calls

You can configure up to 200 calls for a line on a device, with the limiting factor being the total number of calls that are configured on the device. As you configure the number of calls for one line, the calls that are available for another line decrease.

The default specifies 4. If the phone does not allow multiple calls for each line, the default specifies 2.

For CTI route points, you can configure up to 10,000 calls for each port. The default specifies 5000 calls. Use this field in conjunction with the Busy Trigger field.


Note Although the default specifies 5000 calls for maximum number of active calls that can be configured on a CTI route point, Cisco recommends that you set the maximum number of calls to no more than 200 per route point. This will prevent system performance degradation. If the CTI application needs more than 200 calls, Cisco recommends that you configure multiple CTI route points.


Tip To review how this setting works for devices with shared line appearances, refer to "Shared Line Appearance" in the Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide.

Busy Trigger

This setting, which works in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls and Call Forward Busy, determines the maximum number of calls to be presented at the line. If maximum number of calls is set for 50 and the busy trigger is set to 40, then incoming call 41 gets rejected with a busy cause (and will get forwarded if Call Forward Busy is set). If this line is shared, all the lines must be busy before incoming calls get rejected.

Use this field in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls for CTI route points. The default specifies 4500 calls.

Tip To review how this setting works for devices with shared line appearances, refer to "Shared Line Appearance" in the Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide.
