Providing Information to Users By Using a Website


If you are a system administrator, you are likely the primary source of information for Cisco Unified IP Phone users in your network or company. It is important to provide current and thorough information to end users.

To successfully use some features on the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G (such as speed dial numbers and voice messaging system options), users must receive information from you or your network team or be able to contact you for assistance.

Cisco recommends that you create a web page on your internal support site that provides end users with important information about their new Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G.

Consider adding the following types of information to this site:

How the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone Operates

Users need to know that their Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G operates more like a mobile phone than like their desktop phone. Small wireless phones with an antenna allow users to move around a facility while staying connected to a call. These phones, like mobile phones, can approach the edge of the RF signal range and experience static or poor voice quality. At times, the user might encounter areas where there is no signal and lose the call entirely. The following is a list of calling locations and situations in which wireless phones might experience audio problems:

Stairwells, elevators, rooms with metal equipment such as file cabinets, or heavy machinery.

Break rooms with microwave ovens, or labs with equipment that emits RF signals within the same ranges.

Conference rooms or other congested areas where many people are using wireless devices.

Parking garages and outdoor areas where access points are not located or out of range.


Caution This product is not a medical device and uses an unlicensed frequency band that is susceptible to interference from other devices or equipment.

The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G has many of the same phone features as the IP phone desktop models, such as Mute, access to voice messaging, and directories. The phone has a limited number of buttons, because of its size. As a consequence, the following are some differences in its operation:

No line buttons—You must enter the phone number from the key pad and press Send. You can press the Phone icon from the main screen to use other lines on your phone.

Only two softkeys—You must press the Options softkey to see the list of softkey features.

You do not hear a dial tone.

How to Care for and Clean the Phone

Users need to know how to protect and clean their phone. These guidelines provide information about using accessories and cleaning the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G:

Use only chargers, batteries, and accessories that are approved by the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G manufacturer. Use of unapproved chargers, batteries, and accessories might be dangerous.

Do not adhere a clip to the back of the phone or insert a clip between the phone and battery cover because it can damage the battery.

Use a protective cover case to shield the phone from moisture, dust, hair, grease, and other contaminants that might get on your hands. For example, in Healthcare environments, where phones must be cleaned with sterilizing wipes, you must use a protective cover case to prevent moisture damage to the phone.

Use a protective cover case in environments where the phone might be bumped or dropped, such as manufacturing or warehouse environments.

When disconnecting the power cord of any accessory, grasp and pull the plug. Do not pull the cord.

Keep accessories out of reach of young children.

Clean the phone only with a soft dry cloth. Do not use moist wipes or cleaning powders that might damage the phone.


Note Using unapproved accessories, not protecting the phone from moisture, contaminants, and hard impacts can invalidate the one-year hardware warranty.

https://server_name:port_number/ccmuser/

where server_name is the host on which the web server is installed, and port_number is the port address.

A user ID and default password for accessing the application.

These settings correspond to the values you entered when you added the user to Cisco Unified Communications Manager (see the "Adding Users to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration" section).

How Users Access Voice Messages

Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides the flexibility to integrate with many different voice messaging systems, including the Cisco Unity voice messaging system.

How to access the voice messaging system account.

The initial password for accessing the voice messaging system.

Make sure that you have configured a default voice messaging system password for all users.

How the phone indicates that messages are waiting.

Make sure that you have used Cisco Unified Communications Manager to set up a message waiting indicator (MWI) method.
