Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7965G and 7945G Release Notes for Firmware Release 8.3(2) (SCCP and SIP)


August 23, 2007

Use these release notes with the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7965G and 7945G running SCCP or SIP firmware release 8.3(2).

The SCCP version of firmware release 8.3(2) is compatible with Cisco Unified Communications Manager releases 6.0, 5.1, 4.3, 4.2 and 4.1.

The SIP version of firmware release 8.3(2) is compatible with Cisco Unified Communications Manager releases 6.0 and 5.1.


Note SIP firmware release 8.3(2) is designed and tested to interoperate with Cisco call control, most notably Cisco Unified Communications Manager release 6.0. Although SIP firmware is IETF RFC 3261 compliant, it is not supported by Cisco TAC or Engineering for use with non-Cisco call control systems.

Important Notes

This section contains these topics:

Dial Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)

Cisco CallManager Cisco IP Phone Services URL exceeds 255 characters

Dial Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)

The SIP Dialer differs from SCCP dialer, because the Cisco Unified IP Phone (SIP) has more functionality and operates differently due to Dial Rules and Key Press Markup Language (KPML) functionality.

When a comma is selected during the KPML digits exchange, the Cisco Unified IP Phone (SIP) will cancel the KPML subscription and Cisco Unified Communications Manager. As a result, the call will fail to route.

Ensure the primary telephone number is valid when selecting digits on a Cisco Unified IP Phone (SIP).

Cisco CallManager Cisco IP Phone Services URL exceeds 255 characters

When Cisco CallManager Cisco IP Phone Services (CCMCIP) sends a URL that exceeds 255 characters to the IP Phone, the user sees a message on the display indicating an error. This occurs when a user tries to download a ring tone or wallpaper. For more information, refer to CSCsj88175 using the Bug Toolkit.
