For example, when you are working outside, choosing the Outdoors profile automatically increases the ring volume and speaker volume. When you choose the Meeting profile, the ring volume is decreased to the lowest level or you can choose the Silent profile and turn off the ringer.

Network Profiles

Network profiles provide predefined settings for access to the wireless network and for authentication and encryption for your system. Your system administrator defines network profiles for you. You might have more than one network profile available to you. Predefined network profiles allow you to quickly change network configurations for different locations.

For example, when you are working in your local office, you can choose the network profile for that location so you can access the wireless network and authenticate with the security services. When you travel to another office, the wireless network might require a different SSID and authentication settings. You can quickly select the network profile for that location without having to manually change the 802.11b configuration settings.

Choosing a Network Profile

You can choose between up to four network profiles for using your Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7920 in different locations. You can set your phone to automatically scan the profiles and select the network profile with the correct SSID for a specific wireless LAN (WLAN) location.

Your system administrator sets up and maintains the network profiles. Consult with your system administrator if you need to change settings in a profile.
