GUI: Cisco Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface


Tip


Phone settings also display in the Cisco-provided .xls data configuration file.


In the Cisco Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface, you can add, edit, and delete phone configuration. The following table describes the settings that display on the Phones page (Users/Phones > Phones), which allows you to add and edit phone configuration.

Before you can add a phone, make sure that at least one user with at least one assigned extension displays in the Cisco Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface (Users/Phones > Users). In the Add Phone page, you assign a user (an owner) to the phone by assigning the extension for the user to Line 1.

As soon as the phone configuration is saved, the license for the phone is used (consumed) by the system. To determine the number of licenses that are available and used for your system, see the Manage Licenses page (Maintenance > Manage Licenses).

Description

Registration Status

The registration status indicates whether the phone is connected to the Cisco Business Edition 3000 server over the network. In the Add Phone page, the registration status does not display because the system does not yet know about the phone.

Tip    The Registration Status displays only on the Edit Phone page. The registration status may not immediately display because the phone is contacted to retrieve the registration status.

Phone Type

From the drop-down list box, choose the phone model that you want to add. You cannot update this field in the Edit Phone page.

MAC Address

If this field displays, enter the MAC address for the phone, which is 12 hexadecimal characters. You can find the MAC address on the back of your phone.

You cannot update this field in the Edit Phone page.

Identifier

If this field displays, enter any value that you want to indicate the device name.

This field displays for some phones, including Cisco IP Communicator and Cisco Unified Client Services Framework.

You cannot update this field in the Edit Phone page.

Gateway MAC Address

If this field displays, enter the MAC address for the Cisco VG224 Analog Phone Gateway.

You cannot update this field in the Edit Phone page.

Port Number

If this field displays, select the port that you plan to use when you connect the Cisco VG224 Analog Phone Gateway to the system.

You cannot update this field in the Edit Phone page, and only the ports that are available for use display in the list.

Tip    To create the device name for the Cisco VG224 Analog Phone Gateway, Cisco Business Edition 3000 automatically uses the values that you enter in the Gateway MAC Address and the Port Number fields.
