PLK Support for Queue Statistics

The PLK Support for Queue Statistics feature enables the users to query the call queue statistics for hunt pilots and the information appears on phone screen.

The programmable line button Queue Status can be configured by the administrator. When the user presses Queue Status, the phone displays the Queue Status screen. The Queue Status screen includes hunt pilot directory number, number of callers in queue, and the longest call waiting time in queue.

The statistics information is not updated automatically. The user must press the Refresh button to view updated statistics. To exit from the queue display screen, the user presses the Exit button.

SCCP Firmware Upgrade Issues

This section applies to the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7975G, 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7965G, 7962G, 7961G-GE, 7961G, 7945G, 7942G, 7941G-GE, 7941G, 7931G, 7911G, and 7906G.


Note


For all SCCP firmware upgrades from firmware release versions earlier than 8.3(3) to Version 9.3(1) or later, you must first upgrade your phone firmware to an intermediate version (8.3(3) to 8.5(2)) and then upgrade to 9.3(1).


The following upgrade issues apply:

  • If you are currently running firmware earlier than 6.0(2) on a Cisco Unified IP Phone and want to upgrade to 8.x(x), you must first install an intervening 7.0(x) load to prevent upgrade failure. Cisco recommends using the most recent 7.0(3) load as the intervening load to avoid lengthy upgrade times.
  • If you are currently running firmware 6.0(2) to 7.0(2) on a Cisco Unified IP Phone and want to upgrade to 8.x(x), you can do so directly. However, expect the upgrade to take twice as long as usual.

SIP Firmware Upgrade Issues

For all SIP firmware upgrades from firmware release versions earlier than 8.3(3) to Version 9.3(1) or later, you must first upgrade your phone firmware to an intermediate version (8.3(3) to 8.5(2)) and then upgrade to 9.3(1).

The following upgrade issues apply:

  • If you are currently running firmware 6.0(2) to 7.0(2) on a Cisco Unified IP Phone and want to upgrade to 8.x(x), be aware that upgrading will take up to twice as long to complete as usual.
  • Device packs are required to enable IP Phones in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. For Cisco Unified CallManager 4.2 and earlier, these device packs are required. For Cisco Unified CallManager 4.3 and Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.0 and later, you must run the device pack and reboot the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.

            Unified Communications Manager Endpoints Locale Installer

            By default, Cisco IP Phones are set up for the English (United States) locale. To use the Cisco IP phones in other locales, you must install the locale-specific version of the Unified Communications Manager Endpoints Locale Installer on every Cisco Unified Communications Manager server in the cluster. The Locale Installer installs the latest translated text for the phone user interface and country-specific phone tones on your system so that they are available for the Cisco IP Phones.

            To access the Locale Installer required for a release, access http:/​/​software.cisco.com/​download/​navigator.html?mdfid=286037605&flowid=46245, navigate to your phone model, and select the Unified Communications Manager Endpoints Locale Installer link.

            For more information, see the "Locale Installer" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.


            Note


            The latest Locale Installer may not be immediately available; continue to check the website for updates.
