Overview

The Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3911 Administration Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.0 and 5.1 provides the information you need to understand, install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot the phones on a Voice-over-IP (VoIP) network.

Because of the complexity of a Unified Communications network, this guide does not provide complete and detailed information for procedures that you need to perform in Cisco Unified Communications Manager (formerly Cisco Unified CallManager) or other network devices.

Audience

Network engineers, system administrators, or telecom engineers should review this guide to learn the steps required to properly set up the Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3911 on the network.

The tasks described are considered to be administration-level tasks and are not intended for end-users of the phones. Many of the tasks involve configuring network settings and affect the phone's ability to function in the network.

Because of the close interaction between the Cisco Unified IP Phone and Cisco Unified Communications Manager, many of the tasks in this manual require familiarity with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
