This document describes how to register a Cisco Wireless phone to a Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) server. This document has a detailed configuration of CUCM, Access Point and Wireless phone.
Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of the CUCM and Cisco Access Points.
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
CUCM Version 126.96.36.19926-1.
Cisco Aironet 1140 Series Access Point, version 15.3(3)JBB2
Cisco 7925 phone, version 1.4(7)
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
Use the information that is described in this section in order to register a Cisco wireless phones with the CUCM server.
Access Point Configuration
How to Access the Access Point (AP)
Configure DHCP on your L3 Switch or ensure that the switch to which the Aironet will be connected has access to the DHCP server.
After you connect the Aironet to the switchport of a Cisco switch, you can find the Aironet’s details by using show cdp neighbors command on switch.
In order to find out the IP address of the Aironet (which would have taken via DHCP), use the command show cdp neighbors fa 0/6 detail on the switch.
Default username and passwords for the Aironet will be Cisco and Cisco.
You can either use Graphical User Interface (GUI) access of Aironet or Command Line Interface (CLI) access of Aironet to perform the configuration changes. In this document use of GUI access of Aironet has been made.
