Cisco Unified Communications Manager Setup for Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G, 7925G-EX, and 7926G

The following steps provide an overview and checklist of configuration tasks for the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G, 7925G-EX, and 7926G in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. The steps presents a suggested order to guide you through the phone configuration process. Some tasks are optional, depending on your system and user needs. For detailed procedures and information, see the sources in the steps.

Procedure
    Step 1   Gather the following information about the phone:
    • Phone model

    • MAC address

    • Name or user ID of phone user

    • Device pool

    • Partition, calling search space, and location information

    • Number of lines and associated directory numbers (DNs) to assign to the phone

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager user to associate with the phone

    • Phone usage information that affects softkey template, phone features, IP Phone services, or phone applications

    This step provides a list of configuration requirements for setting up phones and identifies preliminary configuration that you need to perform before configuring individual phones, such as phone button templates or softkey templates.

    For more information, see

    Step 2   Customize phone button templates (if required) to change the number of line buttons, speed-dial buttons, Service URL buttons, or to add a Privacy button to meet user needs.

    For more information, see

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "Phone Button Template Configuration" chapter

    • Phone Button Templates

    Step 3   Add and configure the phone by completing the required fields in the Phone Configuration window. Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) next to the field name; for example, MAC address and device pool.

    This step adds the device with its default settings to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.

    For more information, see

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "Cisco Unified IP Phone Configuration" chapter

    • "?" Button Help in the Phone Configuration window

    Step 4   Add and configure directory numbers (lines) on the phone by completing the required fields in the Directory Number Configuration window. Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) next to the field name; for example, directory number and presence group.

    This step adds primary and secondary directory numbers and features associated with directory numbers to the phone.

    For more information, see

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "Directory Number Configuration" chapter, "Creating a Cisco Unity Voice Mailbox" section

    • Telephony Features Available

    Step 5   Customize softkey templates. This step adds, deletes, or changes the order of softkey features that display on the user’s phone to meet feature use needs.

    For more information, see

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "Softkey Template Configuration" chapter

    • Softkey Templates

    Step 6   Assign line view speed-dial numbers. This step adds line view speed-dial numbers.
    Note   

    Configuring and using line view speed-dial numbers are different from speed-dial hot keys that are set up using the Phone Book feature and stored locally on the wireless IP phone.

    Note   

    Users can change line view speed-dial settings on their phones by using Cisco Unified CM User Options.

    For more information, see

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "Cisco Unified IP Phone Configuration" chapter, "Configuring Speed-Dial Buttons" section

    • Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G, 7925G-EX, and 7926G User Guide, "Call Features" chapter, "Speed Dialing" section

    • Telephony Features Available

    Step 7   Configure Cisco Unified IP Phone services and assign services (optional). This step provides IP Phone services.
    Note   

    Users can add or change services on their phones by using the Cisco Unified CM User Options.

    For more information, see

    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "Cisco Unified IP Phone Services Configuration" chapter

    • Services Menu

    Step 8   Add user information by configuring required fields. Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*); for example, User ID and last name.
    Note   

    Assign a password (for User Options web pages) and PIN (for Extension Mobility and Personal Directory)

    This step adds user information to the global directory for Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

    For more information, see

    Step 9   Associate a user to a user group. This step assigns to users a common list of roles and permissions that apply to all users in a user group. Administrators can manage user groups, roles, and permissions to control the level of access (and, therefore, the level of security) for system users.
    Note   

    Applicable to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Release 5.x and later.

    For more information, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide:

    • "End User Configuration" chapter, "End User Configuration settings" section

    • "User Group Configuration" chapter, "Adding Users to a User Group" section

    Step 10   Associate a user with a phone. This step is optional if you do not want users to have access to User Options. This step provides users with control over their phone such as forwarding calls or adding line view speed-dial numbers or services.
    Note   

    Some phones, such as those used by multiple users, do not have an associated user.

    For more information, see Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "End User Configuration" chapter, "Associating Devices to a User" section.
