New and Changed Information
The Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3951 is a cost-effective entry-level phone for use in a lobby, laboratory, manufacturing floor, or hallway. This phone belongs to the family of Cisco Unified IP Phones, running Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) on Cisco Unified CallManager but differs from other Cisco Unified Phones as follows:
• You must configure a SIP dial plan for the Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3951, as it does not use KeyPad Markup Language (KPML).
• You must configure the system to support Dual-Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) by either configuring Media Termination Point (MTP) on a transcoding device that supports RFC 2833 or by checking the Require DTMF Reception check box for each registered Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3951 in Cisco Unified CallManager Administration.
• Cisco Unified CallManager resources are not used for conference calls.
• Speed dials and call forwarding information are managed and stored on the phone itself and not in Cisco Unified CallManager.
•The Personal Address Book and Fast Dials features are not supported on the phone, even when configured on the Cisco Unified CallManager User Options web page.
For more information, see the Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3951 Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CallManager 5.1.
