Introduction

Cisco Jabber Voice for Android provides users with Enterprise calling and access to the corporate directory when connected to your corporate network.

With Cisco Jabber Voice for Android, you can do the following:
  • Place and receive calls from your work phone number through Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) using your mobile device. You can place work calls over using either VoIP or your mobile voice network.

    Note


    Cisco Jabber Voice places work calls using your mobile voice network with the Dial via Office - Reverse (DVO-R) feature. The DVO-R feature requires:

    • Cisco Jabber Voice for Android client, Release 9.1(1) and later.
    • Unified CM 9.1(1a).

  • Receive calls at the standard mobile phone number when Cisco Jabber Voice is not running or not connected to the corporate network.
  • Access voicemail from the Cisco Jabber Voice for Android home screen or from the status bar if a new message exists. If the visual voicemail feature is enabled, you can view a list of your messages and play your messages from the list.
  • Authenticate your device to Unified CM using SIP Digest Authentication.

    Note


    Cisco Jabber Voice does not support SIP Digest Authentication with the Dial via Office - Reverse feature.


  • Use the native Android phone application to place work calls from the Keypad, Logs, Favorites, or Contacts tab.
  • Have up to two VoIP calls (call waiting, add new call, swap between active calls).
  • Manage VoIP calls using many of the standard in-call features that Unified CM provides. These in-call features include hold, transfer, and conference.
  • Transfer an active Cisco Jabber Voice for Android VoIP call to your mobile voice network.
  • Transfer an active Cisco Jabber Voice for Android VoIP call from your device to your desk phone.
  • Search the corporate directory.
  • See a message indicator for new voice messages that are left at the work phone number.
  • Receive calls to your work phone number while the client runs in the background. The client automatically registers to Unified CM when available.
  • Use a VPN client for secure remote access, to:
    • Place and receive VoIP calls from your work phone number using a noncorporate Wi-Fi or mobile data network.
    • Place Dial via Office calls from your work phone number over your mobile voice network. These calls are initiated using a noncorporate Wi-Fi or mobile data network.

    Note


    To enable users to connect to your corporate Wi-Fi network from a remote location, you must set up your system to support VPN. Cisco supports Cisco Jabber Voice for Android with Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. Although other VPN clients are not officially supported, you may be able to use Cisco Jabber Voice for Android with other VPN clients.
