Custom Phone Rings Overview
Custom Phone Rings allows you to create customized phone rings and upload the customized files to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager TFTP server where they can be accessed by Cisco Unified IP Phones.
Cisco Unified IP Phones ship with default ring types that are implemented in hardware: Chirp1 and Chirp2. In addition, Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides the capability of uploading the following files to phones:
- PCM Files
Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides a default set of phone ring sounds that are implemented in software as pulse code modulation (PCM) audio files. Each PCM file specifies a single ring type.
- Ringlist.xml File
The Ringlist.xml file describes the list of ring options that are available for phones.
You can upload customized PCM audio files, such as custom ring tones and call back tones, as well as the modified Ringlist.xml file to the TFTP directory in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
