    Softkey Templates

    Administrators can change the order of softkeys for the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone by using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. Unlike other Cisco Unified IP Phones that have buttons for some functions, the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone has two nonconfigurable softkeys that are set for:

    • Message
    • Options

    When you configure a softkey template for the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G, 7925G-EX, and 7926G, you can configure the Cisco Unified Communications Manager softkeys and their sequence in the Options menu only. The order of softkeys in the softkey template corresponds to the phone softkey list in the Options menu. When you set up the softkey template for users that prefer to have a particular softkey appear during a connected call, place the desired softkey in the first position for the Connected phone state.

    Standard and Nonstandard Softkey Templates

    The standard softkey template displays the Hold softkey when a call is connected. Some users want the Transfer softkey to appear for a connected call instead of Hold.

    To change the softkey that displays, you set up a nonstandard softkey template that places Transfer in the first position for the Connected state. You assign this nonstandard softkey template to the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone assigned to users that want these softkeys.


    Note


    To ensure that users hear the voice-messaging greeting when they are transferred to the voice message system, you must set up a softkey template with Transfer as the first softkey for a connected call.


    Softkey Template Setup

    Use the procedures in the online Help topic, "Adding Non-Standard Softkey Templates" to change the softkeys and their sequence. Softkey templates support up to 16 softkeys for applications. For more information about softkey templates, see the "Softkey Templates" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

    To configure softkey templates, select Device > Device Settings > Softkey Template from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You can modify a standard softkey template by making a copy of it, giving it a new name, and making updates to that copied softkey template. You can also modify a nonstandard softkey template.

    To assign a softkey template to a phone, use the Softkey Template field in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone Configuration page. For more information, see the "Softkey Template Configuration" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

    Phone Button Templates

    Phone button templates let you assign lines and features to positions in the Line View. Ideally, you modify templates before registering phones on the network. In this way, you can access customized phone button template options from Cisco Unified Communications Manager during registration.

    To modify a phone button template, choose Device > Device Settings > Phone Button Template from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. To assign a phone button template to a phone, use the Phone Button Template field in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone Configuration page. For more information about modifying phone button templates, see the "Cisco Unified IP Phones" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide for your release.

    The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone can have up to six lines and up to 24 connected calls. The default button template uses position 1 for lines and assigns positions 2 through 6 as speed dial. You can assign the following features to button positions:

    • Service URL
    • Privacy
    • Speed dial

    Use softkey features in the Options menu to access other phone features, such as call park, call forward, redial, hold, resume, and conferencing.

    Services Menu

    The Services menu on the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone gives users access to Cisco Unified IP Phone Services. These services are XML applications or Java MIDlets that enable the display of interactive content with text and graphics on the phone. Examples of services include Push to Talk, directories, stock quotes, and weather reports. Some services, such as Push to Talk, can use the configurable Applications button that is located on the side of the phone.

    To create customized XML applications for your site, see the Cisco Unified IP Phone Service Application Development Notes.

    Before a user can access any service, two important tasks must be completed:

    • The system administrator must use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure available services.
    • The user must subscribe to services using the Cisco Unified IP Phone User Options application. This web-based application provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for limited end-user configuration of IP Phone applications.

    Note


    For information about extension mobility services for users, see the "Cisco Extension Mobility" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.


    Set up IP Phone services

    To set up IP Phone services, follow these steps.

    Procedure
      Step 1   Before you set up services, gather the URLs for the sites you want to set up and verify that users can access those sites from your corporate IP telephony network.
      Step 2   Perform one of the following actions:
      • To set up these services in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration for Release 4.x, choose Feature > Cisco IP Phone Services.
      • To set up these services in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration for Release 5.0 or later, choose Device > Device Settings > Phone Services.

      For more information about phone services, see the "Cisco Unified IP Phone Services" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

      Step 3   After you configure these services, verify that your users have access to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager User Options web-based application, from which they can select and subscribe to configured services. See User Phone Features and Services for a summary of the information that you must provide to end users.

      Java MIDlet Support

      The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone supports the use of Java MIDlets offered by Cisco vendors and third-party developers. Running Java MIDlet applications directly on the phone allows more sophisticated application capabilities than with existing XML services, such as animated graphics, custom user interface objects, advanced network connectivity, and persistent local storage. Because Java MIDlets are an industry standard, developers can use standard Java development tools for building applications.

      Cisco Unified Communications Manager IP Phone Service provisioning and subscription interfaces allow explicit provisioning of IP Phone Services using the phone configuration file. This explicit provisioning system allows Java MIDlet applications to be installed and managed on the phone. When a new service is added in the configuration, the phone downloads and installs it. When a service is removed, the phone uninstalls it.

      For more information on Java MIDlets, see the Java MIDlet Developers Guide for Cisco Unified IP Phones and the Cisco IP Phone Services MIDlet Software Development Kit.

      Corporate and Personal Directories

      The Directory menu on the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone gives users access to several directories. These directories can include:

      Corporate Directory

      Allows a user to look up phone numbers for coworkers. To support this feature, you must configure corporate directories.

      Personal Directory

      Allows a user to store a set of personal numbers. To support this feature, you must provide the user with software to configure the personal directory.

      Corporate Directory

      Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory to store authentication and authorization information about users of Cisco Unified Communications Manager applications that interact with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Authentication establishes the users’ rights to access the system. Authorization identifies the telephony resources that a user is permitted to use, such as a specific telephone extension.

      To install and set up these features, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, "LDAP System Configuration", "LDAP Directory Configuration", and "LDAP Authentication Configuration" chapters. That manual guides you through the configuration process for integrating Cisco Unified Communications Manager with Microsoft Active Directory, Sun ONE Directory, Netscape Directory, and iPlanet Directory Server.

      After you configure the LDAP directory, users can use the Corporate Directory service on the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone to look up users in the corporate directory.

      Personal Directory

      Personal Directory consists of the following features:

      • Personal Address Book (PAB)
      • Personal Fast Dials (Fast Dials)
      • Address Book Synchronization Tool (TABSynch)

      Users can configure personal directory entries on the Cisco Unified IP Phone. To configure a personal directory, users must have access to the following:

      User Options web pages

      Make sure that users know how to access their User Options web pages. For details, see User Phone Features and Services.

      Cisco Unified IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer

      Make sure to provide users with the installer for this application.
