THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL
STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT

OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio, or farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

An Overview of the Cisco Unified IP Phone
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7971G-GE (gigabit Ethernet version), 7970G, 7965G, and 7945G
are full-featured telephones that provide voice communication over an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
They function much like digital business phones, allowing you to place and receive phone calls and to
access features such as mute, hold, transfer, speed dial, call forward, and more. In addition, because
Cisco Unified IP Phones are connected to your data network, they offer enhanced IP telephony features,
including access to network information and services, and customizeable features and services. The
phones also support security features that include file authentication, device authentication, signaling
encryption, and media encryption.
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7965G, and 7945G each provide a color screen
(touchscreen for the 7975G, 7971G-GE, and the 7970G), support for line or speed dial numbers,
context-sensitive online help for buttons and features, and a variety of other sophisticated functions.
A Cisco Unified IP Phone, like other network devices, must be configured and managed. These phones
encode G.711a, G.711µ, G.722, G.729a, G.729ab, iLBC, and decode G.711a, G.711µ, G722, iLBC, and
G.729, G729a, G.729b, and G.729ab. These phones also support uncompressed wideband (16bits,
16kHz) audio.

What Networking Protocols are Used?
Cisco Unified IP Phones support several industry-standard and Cisco networking protocols required for
voice communication. Table 1-2 provides an overview of the networking protocols that the
Cisco Unified IP Phones 7975G, 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7965G, and 7945G support.
Table 1-2
Supported Networking Protocols on the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Networking Protocol
Purpose
Usage Notes
Bootstrap Protocol (BootP)
BootP enables a network device such as the
Cisco Unified IP Phone to discover certain
startup information, such as its IP address.
If you are using BootP to assign IP addresses
to the Cisco Unified IP Phone, the BOOTP
Server option shows “Yes” in the network
configuration settings on the phone.
Cisco Discovery Protocol
(CDP)
CDP is a device-discovery protocol that runs
on all Cisco-manufactured equipment.
The Cisco Unified IP Phone uses CDP to
communicate information such as auxiliary
VLAN ID, per port power management details,
and Quality of Service (QoS) configuration
information with the Cisco Catalyst switch.
Using CDP, a device can advertise its
existence to other devices and receive
information about other devices in the
network.

Distribution Protocol
(CPPDP)
CPPDP is a Cisco proprietary protocol used to CPPDP is used by the Peer Firmware Sharing
feature.
form a-peer-to-peer hierarchy of devices.
CPPDP is also used to copy firmware or other
files from peer devices to neighboring
devices.
Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP)
DHCP dynamically allocates and assigns an
IP address to network devices.
DHCP enables you to connect an IP phone
into the network and have the phone become
operational without needing to manually
assign an IP address or configure additional
network parameters.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol
(HTTP)
DHCP is enabled by default. If disabled, you
must manually configure the IP address,
subnet mask, gateway, and a TFTP server on
each phone locally.
Cisco recommends that you use DHCP
custom option 150. With this method, you
configure the TFTP server IP address as the
option value. For additional supported DHCP
configurations, refer to Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol and Cisco TFTP in
the Cisco Unified Communications Manager
System Guide.
HTTP is the standard way of transferring
Cisco Unified IP Phones use HTTP for the
information and moving documents across the XML services and for troubleshooting
Internet and the web.
purposes.
Cisco Unified IP Phones do not support the
use of IPv6 addresses in the URL. You cannot
use a literal IPv6 address in the URL or a
hostname that maps to an IPv6 address.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol
Secure (HTTPS)
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS)
is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer
Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to
provide encryption and secure identification
of servers.
Web applications with both HTTP and
HTTPS support have two URLs configured.
Cisco Unified IP Phone that support HTTPS
choose the HTTPS URL out of the two URLs.

Supported Networking Protocols on the Cisco Unified IP Phone (continued)
Networking Protocol
Purpose
Usage Notes
IEEE 802.1X
The IEEE 802.1X standard defines a
client-server-based access control and
authentication protocol that restricts
unauthorized clients from connecting to a
LAN through publicly accessible ports.
The Cisco Unified IP Phone implements the
IEEE 802.1X standard by providing support
for the following authentication methods:
EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS, and EAP-MD5.
Until the client is authenticated, 802.1X
access control allows only Extensible
Authentication Protocol over LAN (EAPOL)
traffic through the port to which the client is
connected. After authentication is successful,
normal traffic can pass through the port.
Internet Protocol (IP)
When 802.1X authentication is enabled on the
phone, you should disable the PC port and
voice VLAN. Refer to Supporting 802.1X
Authentication on Cisco Unified IP Phones,

Real-Time Control Protocol
(RTCP)
RTCP works with Real-Time Transport
Protocol (RTP) to provide QoS data (such as
jitter, latency, and round trip delay) on RTP
streams.
RTCP is disabled by default, but you can
enable it on a per-phone basis using Cisco
Unified Communications Manager. For more
information, see Network Configuration,
page 4-32.
Real-Time Transport Protocol RTP is a standard protocol for transporting
(RTP)
real-time data, such as interactive voice and
video, over data networks.
Cisco Unified IP Phones use the RTP protocol
to send and receive real-time voice traffic
from other phones and gateways.
Session Initiation Protocol
(SIP)
Like other VoIP protocols, SIP is designed to
address the functions of signaling and session
management within a packet telephony
network. Signaling allows call information to
be carried across network boundaries. Session
management provides the ability to control
the attributes of an end-to-end call.
SIP is the Internet Engineering Task Force
(IETF) standard for multimedia conferencing
over IP. SIP is an ASCII-based
application-layer control protocol (defined in
RFC 3261) that can be used to establish,
maintain, and terminate calls between two or
more endpoints.
You can configure the Cisco Unified IP Phone
to use either SIP or Skinny Client Control
Protocol (SCCP).
Cisco Unified IP Phones do not support the
SIP protocol when the phones are operating in
IPv6 address mode.
Skinny Client Control
Protocol (SCCP)
SCCP includes a messaging set that allows
communications between call control servers
and endpoint clients such as IP Phones. SCCP
is proprietary to Cisco Systems.
Cisco Unified IP Phones use SCCP for call
control. You can configure the Cisco
Unified IP Phone to use either SCCP or
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

Session Description Protocol
(SDP)
SDP is the portion of the SIP protocol that
determines which parameters are available
during a connection between two endpoints.
Conferences are established using only the
SDP capabilities that are supported by all
endpoints in the conference.
SDP capabilities, such as codec types, DTMF
detection, and comfort noise, are normally
configured on a global basis by Cisco Unified
Communications Manager or Media Gateway
in operation. Some SIP endpoints may allow
these parameters to be configured on the
endpoint itself.
Transmission Control
Protocol (TCP)
TCP is a connection-oriented transport
protocol.
Cisco Unified IP Phones use TCP to connect
to Cisco Unified Communications Manager
and to access XML services.
Transport Layer Security
(TLS)
TLS is a standard protocol for securing and
authenticating communications.
When security is implemented, Cisco
Unified IP Phones use the TLS protocol when
securely registering with Cisco
Unified Communications Manager.
For more information, refer to the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Security Guide.

User Datagram Protocol
(UDP)
UDP is a connectionless messaging protocol
for delivery of data packets.
Cisco Unified IP Phones transmit and receive
RTP streams, which utilize UDP.
IPv6 Support on Cisco Unified IP Phones
The Cisco Unified IP Phone uses the internet protocol to provide voice communication over the network.
Previous to Cisco Unified Communications Manager release 8.0, only the internet protocol version 4
(IPv4) was supported. Because it uses a 32-bit address, IPv4 cannot meet the increased demands for
unique IP addresses for all devices that can connect to the internet. Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is
an updated version of the current Internet Protocol, IPv4. IPv6 uses a 128-bit address and provides
end-to-end security capabilities, enhanced Quality of Service (QoS), and increased number of available
IP addresses.
The Cisco Unified IP Phone supports IPv4 only addressing mode, IPv6 only addressing mode, as well
as an IPv4/IPv6 dual stack addressing mode. In IPv4, you can enter each octet of the IP address on the
phone in dotted decimal notation; for example, 192.240.22.5. In IPv6, you can enter each octet of the IP
address in hexadecimal notation with each octet separated by a colon; for example,
2005:db8:0:1:ef8:9876:ba72:dc9a. The phone truncates and removes leading zeros when it displays the
IPv6 address.

Chapter 1
An Overview of the Cisco Unified IP Phone
What Networking Protocols are Used?
Cisco Unified IP Phones support both IPv4 and an IPv6 address transparently, so users can handle all
calls on the phone to which they are accustomed. Cisco Unified IP Phones support the use of IPv6 only
with Cisco Unified Communications Manager release 7.1 and only with the Skinny Call Control Protocol
(SCCP).
Cisco Unified IP Phones do not support URLs with IPv6 addresses in the URL. This affects all IP Phone
Service URLs, including services, directories, messages, help, and any restricted web services that
require the phone to use the HTTP protocol to validate the credentials with the Authentication URL. If
you configure Cisco Unified IP Phone services for Cisco Unified IP Phones, you must configure the
phone and the servers that support the phone service with IPv4 addresses.
If you configure IPv6 Only as the IP Addressing Mode for phones that are running SIP, the Cisco TFTP
service overrides the IP Addressing Mode configuration and uses IPv4 Only in the configuration file.
For more information on deploying IPv6 in your Cisco Unified Communications network, refer to
Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services
Guide and Deploying IPv6 in Unified Communications Networks with Cisco Unified Communications
Manager.

Feature Overview
Cisco Unified IP Phones provide traditional telephony functionality, such as call forwarding and
transferring, redialing, speed dialing, conference calling, and voice messaging system access.
Cisco Unified IP phones also provide a variety of other features. For an overview of the telephony
features that the Cisco Unified IP Phone supports, see Telephony Features Available for the Phone,
page 5-1.
As with other network devices, you must configure Cisco Unified IP Phones to prepare them to access
Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the rest of the IP network. By using DHCP, you have fewer
settings to configure on a phone, but if your network requires it, you can manually configure an IP
address, TFTP server, subnet information, and so on. For instructions on configuring the network
settings on the Cisco Unified IP Phones, see Chapter 4, Configuring Settings on the Cisco
Unified IP Phone.
The Cisco Unified IP Phone can interact with other services and devices on your IP network to provide
enhanced functionality. For example, you can integrate the Cisco Unified IP Phones with the corporate
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol 3 (LDAP3) standard directory to enable users to search for
co-workers contact information directly from their IP phones. You can also use XML to enable users to
access information such as weather, stocks, quote of the day, and other web-based information. For
information about configuring such services, see Configuring Corporate Directories, page 5-24 and
Setting Up Services, page 5-28.
Finally, because the Cisco Unified IP Phone is a network device, you can obtain detailed status
information from it directly. This information can assist you with troubleshooting any problems users
might encounter when using their IP phones. See Chapter 7, Viewing Model Information, Status, and
Statistics on the Cisco Unified IP Phone for more information.

Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones
Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones
Implementing security in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system prevents identity theft of
the phone and Cisco Unified Communications Manager server, prevents data tampering, and prevents
call signaling and media stream tampering.
To alleviate these threats, the Cisco Unified IP telephony network establishes and maintains
authenticated and encrypted communication streams between a phone and the server, digitally signs files
before they are transferred to a phone, and encrypts media streams and call signaling between
Cisco Unified IP phones.
The Cisco Unified IP Phones 7975G, 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7965G, and 7945G use the Phone Security
Profile, which defines whether the device is nonsecure, authenticated, or encrypted. For information on
applying the security profile to the phone, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security
Guide.
If you configure security-related settings in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration,
the phone configuration file will contain sensitive information. To ensure the privacy of a configuration
file, you must configure it for encryption. For detailed information, refer to Configuring Encrypted
Phone Configuration Files in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.

Table 1-4
Overview of Security Features
Feature
Description
Image authentication
Signed binary files (with the extension .sbn) prevent tampering with the firmware
image before it is loaded on a phone. Tampering with the image causes a phone to
fail the authentication process and reject the new image.
Customer-site certificate installation
Each Cisco Unified IP Phone requires a unique certificate for device
authentication. Phones include a manufacturing installed certificate (MIC), but for
additional security, you can specify in Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Administration that a certificate be installed by using the CAPF (Certificate
Authority Proxy Function). Alternatively, you can install an LSC from the Security
Configuration menu on the phone. See Configuring Security on the Cisco Unified
IP Phone, page 3-16 for more information.
Device authentication
Occurs between the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server and the phone
when each entity accepts the certificate of the other entity. Determines whether a
secure connection between the phone and a Cisco Unified Communications
Manager should occur, and, if necessary, creates a secure signaling path between
the entities using TLS protocol. Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not
register phones unless they can be authenticated by the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
File authentication
Validates digitally signed files that the phone downloads. The phone validates the
signature to make sure that file tampering did not occur after the file creation. Files
that fail authentication are not written to Flash memory on the phone. The phone
rejects such files without further processing.
Signaling Authentication
Uses the TLS protocol to validate that no tampering has occurred to signaling
packets during transmission.
Manufacturing installed certificate
Each Cisco Unified IP Phone contains a unique manufacturing installed certificate
(MIC), which is used for device authentication. The MIC is a permanent unique
proof of identity for the phone, and allows Cisco Unified Communications
Manager to authenticate the phone.
Secure SRST reference
After you configure a SRST reference for security and then reset the dependent
devices in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, the TFTP
server adds the SRST certificate to the phone cnf.xml file and sends the file to the
phone. A secure phone then uses a TLS connection to interact with the
SRST-enabled router.
Media encryption
Uses SRTP to ensure that the media streams between supported devices proves
secure and that only the intended device receives and reads the data. Includes
creating a media master key pair for the devices, delivering the keys to the devices,
and securing the delivery of the keys while the keys are in transport.
Signaling encryption
Ensures that all SCCP and SIP signaling messages that are sent between the device
and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server are encrypted.
CAPF (Certificate Authority Proxy
Function)
Implements parts of the certificate generation procedure that are too
processing-intensive for the phone, and it interacts with the phone for key
generation and certificate installation. The CAPF can be configured to request
certificates from customer-specified certificate authorities on behalf of the phone,
or it can be configured to generate certificates locally.
Security profiles
Defines whether the phone is nonsecure, authenticated, encrypted, or protected.
See Understanding Security Profiles, page 1-16 for more information.

Understanding Security Profiles
Cisco Unified IP Phones that support Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0 or later use a security
profile, which defines whether the phone is nonsecure, authenticated, or encrypted. For information
about configuring the security profile and applying the profile to the phone, refer to Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Security Guide.
To view the security mode that is set for the phone, look at the Security Mode setting in the Security
Configuration menu. For more information, see Security Configuration Menu, page 4-30.

Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones
Identifying Authenticated, Encrypted, and Protected Phone Calls
When security is implemented for a phone, you can identify authenticated or encrypted phone calls by
icons on the screen that is on the phone.You can also determine if the connected phone is secure and
protected if a security tone plays at the beginning of the call.
In an authenticated call, all devices participating in the establishment of the call are trusted devices, and
authenticated by Cisco Unified Communications Manager. When a call in progress is authenticated, the
call progress icon to the right of the call duration timer in the phone screen changes to this icon:
In an encrypted call, all devices participating in the establishment of the call are trusted devices, and
authenticated by the Cisco Unified Communications Manager. In addition, call signaling and media
streams are encrypted. An encrypted call offers a high level of security, providing integrity and privacy
to the call. When a call in progress is being encrypted, the call progress icon to the right of the call
duration timer in the phone screen changes to this icon:
Note
If the call is routed through non-IP call legs, for example, PSTN, the call may be nonsecure even though
it is encrypted within the IP network and has a lock icon associated with it.
In a protected call, a security tone plays at the beginning of a call to indicate that the other connected
phone is also receiving and transmitting encrypted audio and video (if video is involved). If your call is
connected to a non-protected phone, the security tone does not play.
Note
Protected calling is supported for connections between two phones only. Some features, such as
conference calling, shared lines, Extension Mobility, and Join Across Lines are not available when
protected calling is configured. Protected calls are not authenticated.

Establishing and Identifying Secure Conference Calls
You can initiate a secure conference call and monitor the security level of participants. A secure
conference call is established using this process:
1.
A user initiates the conference from a secure phone (encrypted or authenticated security mode).
2.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager assigns a secure conference bridge to the call.
3.
As participants are added, Cisco Unified Communications Manager verifies the security mode of
each phone (encrypted or authenticated) and maintains the secure level for the conference.
4.
The phone displays the security level of the conference call. A secure conference displays
(authenticated) icon to the right of “Conference” on the phone screen. If
displays, the conference is not secure.

An Overview of the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones
Note
There are interactions, restrictions, and limitations that affect the security level of the conference call
depending on the security mode of the participant’s phones and the availability of secure conference
bridges. See Table 1-5 and Table 1-6 for information about these interactions.
Establishing and Identifying Protected Calls
A protected call is established when your phone, and the phone on the other end, is configured for
protected calling. The other phone can be in the same Cisco Unified IP network, or on a network outside
the IP network. Protected calls can only be made between two phones. Conference calls and other
multiple-line calls are not supported.
A protected call is established using this process:
Note
1.
A user initiates the call from a protected phone (protected security mode).
2.
The phone displays the
icon (encrypted) on the phone screen. This icon indicates that the phone
is configured for secure (encrypted) calls, but this does not mean that the other connected phone is
also protected.
3.
A security tone plays if the call is connected to another protected phone, indicating that both ends
of the conversation are encrypted and protected. If the call is connected to a non-protected phone,
then the secure tone is not played.
Protected calling is supported for conversations between two phones. Some features, such as conference
calling, shared lines, Cisco Extension Mobility, and Join Across Lines are not available when protected
calling is configured.
Call Security Interactions and Restrictions
Cisco Unified Communications Manager checks the phone security status when conferences are
established and changes the security indication for the conference or blocks the completion of the call
to maintain integrity and also security in the system. Table 1-5 provides information about changes to
call security levels when using Barge.

An Overview of the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones
Overview
Cisco Unified IP phones and Cisco Catalyst switches have traditionally used Cisco Discovery Protocol
(CDP) to identify each other and to determine parameters such as VLAN allocation and inline power
requirements. However, CDP is not used to identify any locally attached PCs. Therefore, Cisco Unified
IP Phones provide an EAPOL pass-through mechanism, whereby a PC locally attached to the IP phone
may pass through EAPOL messages to the 802.1X authenticator in the LAN switch. This capability
prevents the IP phone from having to act as the authenticator, yet allows the LAN switch to authenticate
a data end point prior to accessing the network.
In conjunction with the EAPOL pass-through mechanism, Cisco Unified IP Phones provide a proxy
EAPOL-Logoff mechanism. If the locally attached PC is disconnected from the IP phone, the LAN
switch would not see the physical link fail, because the link between the LAN switch and the IP phone
is maintained. To avoid compromising network integrity, the IP phone sends an EAPOL-Logoff message
to the switch on behalf of the downstream PC, which triggers the LAN switch to clear the authentication
entry for the downstream PC.
The Cisco Unified IP phones contain an 802.1X supplicant in addition to the EAPOL pass-through
mechanism. This supplicant allows network administrators to control the connectivity of IP phones to
the LAN switch ports. The Cisco Unified IP Phone 802.1X supplicant uses the EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS,
and EAP-MD5 options for network authentication.
Required Network Components
Support for 802.1X authentication on Cisco Unified IP Phones requires several components, including:
•
Cisco Unified IP Phone—The phone acts as the 802.1X supplicant, which initiates the request to
access the network.
•
Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS) (or other third-party authentication server)—The
authentication server and the phone must both be configured with a shared secret that is used to
authenticate the phone.
•
Cisco Catalyst Switch (or other third-party switch)—The switch must support 802.1X to act as the
authenticator and pass the messages between the phone and the authentication server. When the
exchange is completed, the switch grants or denies the phone access to the network.
Best Practices—Requirements and Recommendations
•
Enable 802.1X Authentication—If you want to use the 802.1X standard to authenticate Cisco
Unified IP Phones, make sure that you have properly configured the other components before
enabling it on the phone. See 802.1X Authentication and Status, page 4-42 for more information.
•
Configure PC Port—The 802.1X standard does not take into account the use of VLANs and thus
recommends that only a single device be authenticated to a specific switch port. However, some
switches (including Cisco Catalyst switches) support multi-domain authentication. The switch
configuration determines whether you can connect a PC to the phone PC port.
– Enabled—If you are using a switch that supports multi-domain authentication, you can enable
the PC port and connect a PC to it. In this case, Cisco Unified IP Phones support proxy
EAPOL-Logoff to monitor the authentication exchanges between the switch and the attached
PC. For more information about IEEE 802.1X support on the Cisco Catalyst switches, refer to
the Cisco Catalyst switch configuration guides at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/tsd_products_support_series_home.

Chapter 1
An Overview of the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones
– Disabled—If the switch does not support multiple 802.1X-compliant devices on the same port,
you should disable the PC Port when 802.1X authentication is enabled. See Security
Configuration Menu, page 4-30 for more information. If you do not disable this port and
subsequently attempt to attach a PC to it, the switch will deny network access to the phone and
the PC.
•
Configure Voice VLAN—Because the 802.1X standard does not account for VLANs, you should
configure this setting based on the switch support.
– Enabled—If you are using a switch that supports multi-domain authentication, you can continue
to use the voice VLAN.
– Disabled—If the switch does not support multi-domain authentication, disable the Voice VLAN
and consider assigning the port to the native VLAN. See Security Configuration Menu,
page 4-30 for more information.
•
Enter MD5 Shared Secret—If you disable 802.1X authentication or perform a factory reset on the
phone, the previously configured MD5 shared secret is deleted. See 802.1X Authentication and
Status, page 4-42 for more information.
Security Restrictions
A user cannot barge into an encrypted call if the phone that is used to barge is not configured for
encryption. When barge fails in this case, a reorder tone (fast busy tone) plays on the phone on which
the user initiated the barge.
If the initiator phone is configured for encryption, the barge initiator can barge into an authenticated or
nonsecure call from the encrypted phone. After the barge occurs, Cisco Unified Communications
Manager classifies the call as nonsecure.
If the initiator phone is configured for encryption, the barge initiator can barge into an encrypted call,
and the phone indicates that the call is encrypted.
A user can barge into an authenticated call, even if the phone that is used to barge is nonsecure. The
authentication icon continues to appear on the authenticated devices in the call, even if the initiator
phone does not support security.

and network components, including Cisco Unified Communications Manager, DNS and DHCP servers,
TFTP servers, media resources, Cisco prestandard PoE, and so on.
This chapter focuses on the interactions between the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7975G, 7971G-GE,
7970G, 7965G, and 7945G and Cisco Unified Communications Manager, DNS and DHCP servers,
TFTP servers, and switches. It also describes options for powering phones.

Understanding How the Cisco Unified IP Phone Interacts with Cisco
Unified Communications Manager
Cisco Unified Communications Manager is an open and industry-standard call processing system.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager software sets up and tears down calls between phones,
integrating traditional PBX functionality with the corporate IP network. Cisco Unified Communications
Manager manages the components of the IP telephony system—the phones, the access gateways, and the
resources necessary for features such as call conferencing and route planning. Cisco Unified
Communications Manager also provides:
•
Firmware for phones
•
Authentication and encryption (if configured for the telephony system)
•
Configuration, CTL, and Identity Trust List (ITL) files via the TFTP service
•
Phone registration
•
Call preservation, so that a media session continues if signaling is lost between the primary
Communications Manager and a phone
For information about configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager to work with the IP devices
described in this chapter, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, Cisco
Unified Communications Manager System Guide, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security
Guide.

Understanding How the Cisco Unified IP Phone Interacts with the VLAN
The Cisco Unified IP Phones 7975G, 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7965G, and 7945G have an internal Ethernet
switch, enabling forwarding of packets to the phone, and to the access port and the network port on the
back of the phone.
If a computer is connected to the access port, the computer and the phone share the same physical link
to the switch and share the same port on the switch. This shared physical link has the following
implications for the VLAN configuration on the network:
•
The current VLANs might be configured on an IP subnet basis. However, additional IP address
might not be available to assign the phone to the same subnet as other devices connect to the same
port
•
Data traffic present on the data/native VLAN may reduce the quality of Voice-over-IP traffic
•
Network security may indicate a need to isolate the VLAN voice traffic from the VLAN data traffic
You can resolve these issues by isolating the voice traffic onto a separate VLAN. The switch port that
the phone is connected to would be configured to have separate VLANs for carrying:
•
Voice traffic to and from the IP phone (auxiliary VLAN, on the Cisco Catalyst 6000 series, for
example)
•
Data traffic to and from the PC connected to the switch through the access port of the IP phone
(native VLAN)
Isolating the phones on a separate, auxiliary VLAN improves the quality of the voice traffic and allows
a large number of phones to be added to an existing network where there are not enough IP addresses
for each phone.

Preparing to Install the Cisco Unified IP Phone on Your Network
Understanding Phone Configuration Files
Understanding Phone Configuration Files
Configuration files for a phone are stored on the TFTP server and define parameters for connecting to
Cisco Unified Communications Manager. In general, any time you make a change in Cisco
Unified Communications Manager that requires the phone to be reset, a change is automatically made
to the phone’s configuration file.
Configuration files also contain information about which image load the phone should be running. If this
image load differs from the one that is currently loaded on a phone, the phone contacts the TFTP server
to request the required load files. (These files are digitally signed to ensure the authenticity of the file
source.)
In addition, if the device security mode in the configuration file is set to Authenticated and the CTL file
on the phone has a valid certificate for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the phone establishes
a TLS connection to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Otherwise, the phone establishes a TCP
connection. For SIP phones, a TLS connection requires that the transport protocol in the phone
configuration file be set to TLS, which corresponds to the transport type in the SIP Security Profile in
Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Note
If the device security mode in the configuration file is set to Authenticated or Encrypted, but the phone
has not received a CTL or ITL file, the phone tries four times to obtain it so it can register securely.
Note
Cisco Extension Mobility Cross Cluster is an exception, in that the phone permits a TLS connection to
Cisco Unified Communications Manager for secure signaling even without the CTL file.
If you configure security-related settings in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration,
the phone configuration file will contain sensitive information. To ensure the privacy of a configuration
file, you must configure it for encryption. For detailed information, refer to Configuring Encrypted
Phone Configuration Files in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.
A phone accesses a default configuration file named XmlDefault.cnf.xml only when the phone has not
received a valid Trust List file containing a certificate assigned to the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager and TFTP.
If auto registration is not enabled and you did not add the phone to the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager database, the phone does not attempt to register with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
The phone continually displays the “Configuring IP” message until you either enable auto-registration
or add the phone to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.
If the phone has registered before, the phone accesses the configuration file named
SEPmac_address.cnf.xml, where mac_address is the MAC address of the phone.
For SIP phones, the TFTP server generates these SIP configuration files:
•
SIP IP Phone:
– For unsigned and unencrypted files—SEP<mac>.cnf.xml
– For signed files—SEP<mac>.cnf.xml.sgn
– For signed and encrypted files—SEP<mac>.cnf.xml.enc.sgn

2.
Loading the StoredPhone Image.
See Resolving Startup Problems, page 9-1.
The Cisco Unified IP Phone has non-volatile flash memory
in which it stores firmware images and user-defined

See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5.
Configuring VLAN.
See Resolving Startup Problems, page 9-1.
If the Cisco Unified IP Phone is connected to a Cisco

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) request for
an IP address.

Adding Phones with Auto-Registration and TAPS
You can add phones with auto-registration and TAPS, the Tool for Auto-Registered Phones Support,
without first gathering MAC addresses from phones.
TAPS works with the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) to update a batch of phones that were already
added to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database with dummy MAC addresses. Use TAPS
to update MAC addresses and download pre-defined configurations for phones.
Note
Cisco recommends you use auto-registration and TAPS to add less than 100 phones to your network. To
add more than 100 phones to your network, use the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT). See Adding Phones
with BAT, page 2-13.
To implement TAPS, you or the end-user dial a TAPS directory number and follow voice prompts. When
the process is complete, the phone will have downloaded its directory number and other settings, and the
phone will be updated in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration with the correct MAC
address.
Auto-registration must be enabled in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration
(System > Cisco Unified CM) for TAPS to function.
Note
When you configure the cluster for mixed mode through the Cisco CTL client, auto-registration is
automatically disabled. When you configure the cluster for nonsecure mode through the Cisco CTL
client, auto-registration is not automatically enabled.

the remote party and the Cisco Unified IP Phone user. Humming or buzzing sounds can be caused by a
range of outside sources; for example, electric lights, electric motors, or large PC monitors. See Using
External Devices, page 3-5, for more information.
Note
In some cases, hum may be reduced or eliminated by using a local power cube or power injector.
These environmental and hardware inconsistencies in the locations where Cisco Unified IP Phones are
deployed means that there is not a single headset solution that is optimal for all environments.
Cisco recommends that customers test headsets in their intended environment to determine performance
before making a purchasing decision and deploying en mass.
Note
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7965G, and 7945G support wideband headsets.
Audio Quality Subjective to the User
Beyond the physical, mechanical and technical performance, the audio portion of a headset must sound
good to the user and the party on the far end. Sound quality is subjective and Cisco cannot guarantee the
performance of any headsets or handsets. However, a variety headsets from leading headset
manufacturers have been reported to perform well with Cisco Unified IP Phones. See manufacturer’s
sites for details.

Using External Devices
The following information applies when you use external devices with the Cisco Unified IP Phone:
Cisco recommends the use of good quality external devices that are shielded (screened) against
unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals.
Depending on the quality of these devices and their proximity to other devices such as mobile phones or
two-way radios, some audio noise may still occur. In these cases, Cisco recommends that you take one
or more of the following actions:
•
Move the external device away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
•
Route the external device cables away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
•
Use shielded cables for the external device, or use cables with a better shield and connector.
•
Shorten the length of the external device cable.
•
Apply ferrites or other such devices on the cables for the external device.
Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of the system because Cisco has no control over the quality of
external devices, cables, and connectors. The system will perform adequately when suitable devices are
attached using good quality cables and connectors.
Caution
In European Union countries, use only external headsets that are fully compliant with the EMC Directive
[89/336/EC].
Installing the Cisco Unified IP Phone

Configuring Security on the Cisco Unified IP Phone
The security features protect against several threats, including threats to the identity of the phone and to
data. These features establish and maintain authenticated communication streams between the phone and
the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server, and digitally sign files before they are delivered.
For more information about the security features, see Understanding Security Features for Cisco Unified
IP Phones, page 1-13. Also, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.
You can initiate the installation of a Locally Significant Certificate (LSC) from the Security
Configuration menu on the phone. This menu also lets you update or remove an LSC.
Before you begin, make sure that the appropriate Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the
CAPF security configurations are complete:
•
The CTL or ITL file should have a CAPF certificate
•
On Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration, verify that the CAPF
certificate has been installed
•
The CAPF is running and configured
Refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide for more information.
To configure an LSC on the phone manually, perform the following procedure. Depending on how you
have configured the CAPF, this procedure installs an LSC, updates an existing LSC, or removes an
existing LSC.
Procedure
Step 1
Obtain the CAPF authentication code that was set when the CAPF was configured.
Step 2
From the phone, press the Settings > Security Configuration.
Note
Step 3
Press **# to unlock settings on the Security Configuration menu. (See Unlocking and Locking Options,
page 4-3 for information about using locking and unlocking options.)
Note
Step 4
You can control access to the Settings Menu by using the Settings Access field in the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone Configuration window. For
more information, see Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.
If a Settings Menu password has been provisioned, SIP phones present an “Enter password”
prompt after you enter **#.
Scroll to LSC and press the Update softkey.
The phone prompts for an authentication string.
Step 5
Enter the authentication code and press the Submit softkey.
The phone begins to install, update, or remove the LSC, depending on how the CAPF was configured.
During the procedure, a series of messages displays in the LSC option field in the Security Configuration
menu so you can monitor progress. When the procedure completes successfully, the phone will display
Installed or Not Installed.

Understanding DHCPv6 and Autoconfiguration
You can choose to configure the IP address and other network settings, such as the TFTP server, DNS
server, domain, name, etc. on an IP phone manually or by using a router and/or a DHCP server to
automatically assign the IP address and other network information. For more information on how the
Allow Auto Configuration for Phones and DHCPv6 settings determine where the IP Phone acquires its
IPv6 address and other network settings, see Table 4-5.

Automatic Port
Synchronization
When the Cisco Unified CM administrator uses the

of packets can occur if one port is slower than the
other.
To configure the parameter in the Cisco
Unified CM Administration application,
choose Device > Phone, select the
appropriate IP phones, and scroll to the
Product Specific Configuration Layout pane.
The Automatic Port Synchronization feature
synchronizes the ports to the lowest speed among
the two ports, which eliminates packet loss. When
automatic port synchronization is enabled, it is
recommended that both ports be configured for
autonegotiate. If one port is enabled for
autonegotiate and the other is at a fixed speed, the
phone synchronizes to the fixed port speed.
To configure the setting on multiple phones
simultaneously, enable Automatic Port

Configuring Corporate and Personal Directories
Configuring Corporate and Personal Directories
The Directories button on the Cisco Unified IP Phone gives users access to several directories. These
directories can include:
•
Corporate Directory—Allows a user to look up phone numbers for co-workers.
To support this feature, you must configure corporate directories. See Configuring Corporate
Directories, page 5-24 for more information.
•
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.
See Configuring Personal Directory, page 5-24 for more information.
Configuring Corporate Directories
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 interface with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Authentication establishes a user’s right 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, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration
Guide, LDAP System Configuration, LDAP Directory Configuration, and LDAP Authentication
Configuration chapters.
After the LDAP directory configuration completes, users can use the Corporate Directory service on
their Cisco Unified IP Phone to look up users in the corporate directory.
Configuring 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 access Personal Directory features by these methods:
•
From a web browser—Users can access the PAB and Fast Dials features from the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager User Options web pages.
•
From the Cisco Unified IP Phone—Users can choose Directories > Personal Directory to access
the PAB and Fast Dials features from their phones.
•
From a Microsoft Windows application—Users can use the TABSynch tool to synchronize their
PABs with Microsoft Windows Address Book (WAB). Customers who want to use the Microsoft
Outlook Address Book (OAB) should begin by importing the data from the OAB into the Windows
Address Book (WAB). TabSync can then be used to synchronize the WAB with Personal Directory.
To ensure that Cisco Unified IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer users have access to end-user data
that pertains only to them, activate the Cisco UXL Web Service in Cisco Unified Serviceability.
To configure Personal Directory from a web browser, users must access their User Options web pages.
You must provide users with a URL and login information.

Customizing the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Creating Custom Phone Rings
Creating Custom Phone Rings
The Cisco Unified IP Phone ships with two default ring types that are implemented in hardware: Chirp1
and Chirp2. Cisco Unified Communications Manager also provides a default set of additional phone ring
sounds that are implemented in software as pulse code modulation (PCM) files. The PCM files, along
with an XML file (named Ringlist.xml) that describes the ring list options that are available at your site,
exist in the TFTP directory on each Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.
For more information, see Custom Phone Rings in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features
and Services Guide and Software Upgrades in Cisco Unified Communications Operating System
Administration Guide.
The following sections describe how you can customize the phone rings that are available at your site by
creating PCM files and editing the Ringlist.xml file:
•
Ringlist.xml File Format Requirements, page 6-2
•
PCM File Requirements for Custom Ring Types, page 6-3
•
Configuring a Custom Phone Ring, page 6-3
Ringlist.xml File Format Requirements
The Ringlist.xml file defines an XML object that contains a list of phone ring types. This file can include
up to 50 ring types. Each ring type contains a pointer to the PCM file that is used for that ring type and
the text that will appear on the Ring Type menu on a Cisco Unified IP Phone for that ring. The
Cisco TFTP server for each Cisco Unified Communications Manager contains this file.
The CiscoIPPhoneRinglist XML object uses the following simple tag set to describe the information:
<CiscoIPPhoneRingList>
<Ring>
<DisplayName/>
<FileName/>
</Ring>
</CiscoIPPhoneRingList>
The following characteristics apply to the definition names. You must include the required DisplayName
and FileName for each phone ring type.
Note
•
DisplayName defines the name of the custom ring for the associated PCM file that will display on
the Ring Type menu of the Cisco Unified IP Phone.
•
FileName specifies the name of the PCM file for the custom ring to associate with DisplayName.
The DisplayName and FileName fields must not exceed 25 characters.
This example shows a Ringlist.xml file that defines two phone ring types:
<CiscoIPPhoneRingList>
<Ring>
<DisplayName>Analog Synth 1</DisplayName>
<FileName>Analog1.raw</FileName>
</Ring>
<Ring>
<DisplayName>Analog Synth 2</DisplayName>
<FileName>Analog2.raw</FileName>
</Ring>

Customizing the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Creating Custom Background Images
PCM File Requirements for Custom Ring Types
The PCM files for the rings must meet the following requirements for proper playback on
Cisco Unified IP Phones:
•
Raw PCM (no header)
•
8000 samples per second
•
8 bits per sample
•
uLaw compression
•
Maximum ring size—16080 samples
•
Minimum ring size—240 samples
•
Number of samples in the ring is evenly divisible by 240.
•
Ring starts and ends at the zero crossing.
•
To create PCM files for custom phone rings, you can use any standard audio editing packages that
supports these file format requirements.
Configuring a Custom Phone Ring
To create custom phone rings for the Cisco Unified IP Phone, follow these steps:
Procedure
Step 1
Create a PCM file for each custom ring (one ring per file). Ensure the PCM files comply with the format
guidelines that are listed in the PCM File Requirements for Custom Ring Types, page 6-3.
Step 2
Place the new PCM files that you created to the Cisco TFTP server for each
Cisco Unified Communications Manager in your cluster. For more information, see the Software
Upgrades in Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.
Step 3
Use a text editor to edit the Ringlist.xml file. See Ringlist.xml File Format Requirements, page 6-2 for
information about how to format this file and for a sample Ringlist.xml file.
Step 4
Save your modifications and close the Ringlist.xml file.
Step 5
To cache the new Ringlist.xml file, stop and start the TFTP service by using Cisco Unified Serviceability
or disable and re-enable the Enable Caching of Constant and Bin Files at Startup TFTP service parameter
(located in the Advanced Service Parameters).
Creating Custom Background Images
You can provide users with a choice of background images for the LCD screen on their phones. Users
can select a background image by choosing Settings > User Preferences > Background Images on the
phone.
The image choices that users see come from PNG images and an XML file (called List.xml) that are
stored on the TFTP server used by the phone. By storing your own PNG files and editing the XML file
on the TFTP server, you can designate the background images from which users can choose. In this way,
you can provide custom images, such as your company logo.

/Desktops/320x212x12 Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G-GE and 7970G
Tip
If you are manually creating the directory structure and the List.xml file, you must ensure that the
directories and files can be accessed by the user\CCMService, which is used by the TFTP service.
For more information, see Software Upgrades in Cisco Unified Communications Operating System
Administration Guide.
The List.xml file can include up to 50 background images. The images are in the order that they appear
in the Background Images menu on the phone. For each image, the List.xml file contains one element
type, called ImageItem. The ImageItem element includes these two attributes:
•
Image—Uniform resource identifier (URI) that specifies where the phone obtains the thumbnail
image that will appear on the Background Images menu on a Phone.
•
URL—URI that specifies where the phone obtains the full size image.
The following example (for a Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G-GE and 7970G) shows a List.xml file that
defines two images. The required Image and URL attributes must be included for each image. The TFTP
URI that is shown in the example is the only supported method for linking to full size and thumbnail
images. HTTP URL support is not provided.
List.xml Example
<CiscoIPPhoneImageList>
<ImageItem Image=”TFTP:Desktops/320x212x12/TN-Fountain.png”
URL=”TFTP:Desktops/320x212x12/Fountain.png”/>
<ImageItem Image=”TFTP:Desktops/320x212x12/TN-FullMoon.png”
URL=”TFTP:Desktops/320x212x12/FullMoon.png”/>
</CiscoIPPhoneImageList>
The Cisco Unified IP Phone firmware includes a default background image. This image is not defined
in the List.xml file. The default image is always the first image that appears in the Background Images
menu on the phone.

Chapter 6
Customizing the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Creating Custom Background Images
PNG File Requirements for Custom Background Images
Each background image requires two PNG files:
Tip
•
Full size image—Version that displays on the on the phone.
•
Thumbnail image—Version that displays on the Background Images screen from which users can
select an image. Must be 25% of the size of the full size image.
Many graphics programs provide a feature that will resize a graphic. An easy way to create a thumbnail
image is to first create and save the full size image, then use the sizing feature in the graphics program
to create a version of that image that is 25% of the original size. Save the thumbnail version by using a
different name.
The PNG files for background images must meet the following requirements for proper display on the
Cisco Unified IP Phone:
•
Full size image—320 pixels (width) X 216 pixels (height).
•
Thumbnail image—80 pixels (width) X 53 pixels (height).
•
Color palette:
– (for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G-GE and 7970G)—Includes up to 12-bit color (4096 colors).
You can use more than 12-bit color, but the phone will reduce the color palette to 12-bit before
displaying the image. For best results, reduce the color palette of an image to 12-bit when you
create a PNG file.
Tip: If you are using a graphics program that supports a posterize feature for specifying the
number of tonal levels per color channel, set the number of tonal levels per channel to 16 (16
red X 16 green X 16 blue = 4096 colors).
– (for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7965G, and 7945G)—Includes up to 16-bit color (65535
colors). You can use more than 16-bit color, but the phone will reduce the color palette to 16-bit
before displaying the image. For best results, reduce the color palette of an image to 16-bit when
you create a PNG file.
Tip: If you are using a graphics program that supports a posterize feature for specifying the
number of tonal levels per color channel, set the number of tonal levels per channel to 40 (40
red X 40 green X 40 blue = 64000 colors). This is as close as you can posterize to 65535 colors
without exceeding the maximum.

Chapter 6
Customizing the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Creating Custom Background Images
Configuring a Custom Background Image
To create custom background images for the Cisco Unified IP Phone, follow these steps:
Procedure
Step 1
Create two PNG files for each image (a full size version and a thumbnail version). Ensure the PNG files
comply with the format guidelines that are listed in the PNG File Requirements for Custom Background
Images, page 6-5.
Step 2
Upload the new PNG files that you created to the following subdirectory in the TFTP server for the Cisco
Unified Communications Manager:
/Desktops/320x216x16 for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G, 7965G, and 7945G
/Desktops/320x212x12 Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G-GE and 7970G
Note
The file name and subdirectory parameters are case sensitive. Be sure to use the forward slash
“/” when you specify the subdirectory path.
To upload the files, choose Software Upgrades > Upload TFTP Server File in Cisco Unified
Communications Operating System Administration. For more information, see Software Upgrades in
Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.
Note
Step 3
If the folder does not exist, the folder is created and the files are uploaded to the folder.
You must also copy the customized images and files to the other TFTP servers that the phone may contact
to obtain these files.
Note
Cisco recommends that you also store backup copies of custom image files in another location.
You can use these backup copies if the customized files are overwritten when you upgrade
Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Step 4
Use a text editor to edit the List.xml file. See List.xml File Format Requirements, page 6-4 for the
location of this file, formatting requirements, and a sample file.
Step 5
Save your modifications and close the List.xml file.
Note
Step 6
When you upgrade Cisco Unified Communications Manager, a default List.xml file will replace
your customized List.xml file. After you customize the List.xml file, make a copy of the file and
store it in another location. After upgrading Cisco Unified Communications Manager, replace
the default List.xml file with your stored copy.
To cache the new List.xml file, stop and start the TFTP service by using Cisco Unified Serviceability or
disable and re-enable the Enable Caching of Constant and Bin Files at Startup TFTP service parameter
(located in the Advanced Service Parameters).

Customizing the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Configuring Wideband Codec
Configuring Wideband Codec
If Cisco Unified Communications Manager has been configured to use G.722 (G.722 is enabled by
default for the Cisco Unified IP Phone) and if the far endpoint supports G.722, the call can connect using
the G.722 codec in place of G.711. This situation occurs regardless of whether the user has enabled a
wideband headset or wideband handset, but if either the headset or handset is enabled, the user may
notice greater audio sensitivity during the call. Greater sensitivity means improved audio clarity but also
means that more background noise can be heard by the far endpoint—noise such as rustling papers or
nearby conversations. Even without a wideband headset or handset, some users may prefer the additional
sensitivity of G.722. Other users may be distracted by the additional sensitivity of G.722.
The following parameters in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration affect whether
wideband is supported for this Cisco Unified Communications Manager server or a specific phone:
•
Advertise G.722 Codec—From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose
System > Enterprise Parameters. The default value of this enterprise parameter is True, which
means that all Cisco Unified IP Phones that are registered to this Cisco Unified Communications
Manager advertise G.722 to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. For more information, see the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide, chapter Cisco Unified IP Phones, section
Codec Usage.
•
Advertise G.722 Codec—From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose
Device > Phone. The default value for this product-specific parameter is the value that is specified
in the enterprise parameter. If you want to override this on a per-phone basis, choose Enabled or
Disabled in the Advertise G.722 Codec parameter on the Product Specific Configuration area of the
Phone Configuration window.
Configuring the Idle Display
You can specify an idle display that appears on the phone LCD screen. The idle display is an XML
service that the phone invokes when the phone has been idle (not in use) for a designated period and no
feature menu is open.
XML services that can be used as idle displays include company logos, product pictures, and stock
quotes.
Configuring the idle display consists of these general steps:
1.
Formatting an image for display on the phone.
2.
Configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager to display the image on the phone.
For detailed instructions about creating and displaying the idle display, refer to Creating Idle URL
Graphics on Cisco Unified IP Phone at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/788/AVVID/idle-url.html
In addition, you can refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide or to Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration Guide for the following information:
•
Specifying the URL of the idle display XML service:
– For a single phone—Idle field on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Phone
configuration window
– For multiple phones simultaneously—URL Idle field on the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Enterprise Parameters configuration window, or the Idle field in the Bulk
Administration Tool (BAT)
Cisco Unified IP Phone Administration Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.5

•
Specifying the length of time that the phone is not used before the idle display XML service is
invoked:
– For a single phone—Idle Timer field on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Phone
configuration window
– For multiple phones simultaneously—URL Idle Time field on the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Enterprise Parameters configuration window, or the
Idle Timer field in the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT)
From a phone, you can see settings for the idle display XML service URL and the length of time that the
phone is not used before this service is invoked. To see these settings, choose Settings > Device
Configuration and scroll to the Idle URL and the Idle URL Time parameters.
Automatically Disabling the Cisco Unified IP Phone Screen
To conserve power and ensure the longevity of the LCD screen on the phone, you can set the LCD to
turn off when it is not needed.
You can configure settings in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to turn off the
display at a designated time on some days and all day on other days. For example, you may choose to
turn off the display after business hours on weekdays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
When the display is off, the LCD screen is dark and disabled, and the Display button lights. You can take
any of these actions to turn on the display any time it is off:
•
Press any button on the phone.
If you press a button other than the Display button, the phone will take the action designated by that
button in addition to turning on the display.
•
Touch the touchscreen (or phone screen, whichever is applicable).
•
Lift the handset.
When you turn the display on, it remains on until the phone has remained idle for a designated length of
time, then it turns off automatically.
Note
You can use the Display button to temporarily disable the touchscreen (or phone screen) for cleaning.
See Cleaning the Cisco Unified IP Phone, page 9-20 for more information.
Note
The XSI Screen Width Enhancement feature, when implemented on Cisco Unified IP Phones, enhances
the viewability of the Messages, Directories, and Services screens. These screens may appear in Normal
mode or in Wide mode, depending on how the phone is set up. For information, see Cisco Unified IP
Phone Services Application Development Notes.
Table 6-1 explains the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration fields that control when
the display turns on and off. You configure these fields in Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Administration in the Product Specific configuration window. (You access this window by choosing
Device > Phone from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.)
You can view the display settings for a phone from the Power Save Configuration menu on the phone.

Using Test Tone
The Cisco Unified IP Phone supports a “test tone,” which allows you to troubleshoot echo on a call as
well as to test low volume levels.
Procedure for Enabling the Tone Generator
Step 1
Verify that the phone is unlocked.
When options are inaccessible for modification, a locked padlock icon
appears on the configuration
menus. When options are unlocked and accessible for modification, an unlocked padlock
icon
appears on these menus.
To unlock or lock options on the Settings menu, press **# on the phone keypad. This action either locks
or unlocks the options, depending on the previous state.
Note
If a Settings Menu password has been provisioned, SIP phones present an “Enter password”
prompt after you enter **#.
Make sure to lock options after you have made your changes.
Caution
Step 2
Do not press **# to unlock options and then immediately press **# again to lock options. The phone
will interpret this sequence as **#**, which will reset the phone. To lock options after unlocking them,
wait at least 10 seconds before you press **# again.
While offhook, press the Help button twice to invoke the Call Statistics screen, or press Settings >
Status > Call Statistics to invoke the Call Statistics screen. Look for the Tone softkey.
When the Tone softkey is visible, the softkey remains enabled for as long as this Cisco Unified IP phone
is registered with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
You can proceed to the Procedure for creating a test tone.
Step 3
If the Tone softkey is not present, exit the Call Statistics screen, enter the Settings Menu, and press **3
on the phone keypad to enable the Tone softkey. (Pressing **3 toggles the Tone softkey.)
Note
If you press **# **3 consecutively, with no pause, you will inadvertently reset the phone
because of the **#** sequence.
While offhook, press the Help button twice to invoke the Call Statistics screen, or press Settings >
Status > Call Statistics to invoke the Call Statistics screen. Verify that the Tone softkey is present.
When the Tone softkey is visible, the softkey remains enabled for as long as this Cisco Unified IP Phone
is registered with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

Procedure for Creating a Test Tone
Note
When measuring echo, make sure you first set the input and output levels to 0 dB gain/attenuation on the
trunk. This is set for the gateway (in Cisco Unified Communications Manager for MGCP) or under IOS
CLI for H.323 or SIP.
Step 1
Place a call.
Step 2
Once the call is established, press the Help button twice, or press Settings > Status > Call Statistics.
The Call Statistics screen and Tone softkey should appear.
Step 3
Press the Tone softkey.
The phone generates a 1004 Hz tone at -15 dBm. For a good network connection, the tone sounds at the
call destination only. For a bad network connection, the phone generating the tone may receive echo from
the destination phone.
Step 4
To stop the tone, end the call.
For information on interpreting the results of test tone for volume and echo, refer to the following
document:

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
Resolving Startup Problems
Symptom: The Cisco Unified IP Phone Does Not Go Through its Normal Startup
Process
When you connect a Cisco Unified IP Phone into the network port, the phone should go through its
normal startup process as described in the “Verifying the Phone Startup Process” section on page 3-14,
and the LCD screen should display information. If the phone does not go through the startup process,
the cause may be faulty cables, bad connections, network outages, lack of power, and so on. Or, the
phone may not be functional.
To determine whether the phone is functional, follow these suggestions to systematically eliminate these
other potential problems:
1.
Verify that the network port is functional:
– Exchange the Ethernet cables with cables that you know are functional.
– Disconnect a functioning Cisco Unified IP Phone from another port and connect it to this
network port to verify the port is active.
– Connect the Cisco Unified IP Phone that will not start up to a different network port that is
known to be good.
– Connect the Cisco Unified IP Phone that will not start up directly to the port on the switch,
eliminating the patch panel connection in the office.
2.
Verify that the phone is receiving power:
– If you are using external power, verify that the electrical outlet is functional.
– If you are using in-line power, use the external power supply instead.
– If you are using the external power supply, switch with a unit that you know to be functional.
– Make sure that the phone is connected to a switch that supports IEEE 802.3af Class 3 (15.4 W
in-line power at the switch port). For more information, see Providing Power to the Phone,
page 2-4.
3.
If the phone still does not start up properly, power up the phone with the handset off-hook. When
the phone is powered up in this way, it attempts to launch a backup software image.
4.
If the phone still does not start up properly, perform a factory reset of the phone. For instructions,
see Performing a Factory Reset, page 9-15.
If after attempting these solutions, the LCD screen on the Cisco Unified IP Phone does not display any
characters after at least five minutes, contact a Cisco technical support representative for additional
assistance.
Symptom: The Cisco Unified IP Phone Does Not Register with Cisco
Unified Communications Manager
If the phone proceeds past the first stage of the startup process (LED buttons flashing on and off) but
continues to cycle through the messages displaying on the LCD screen, the phone is not starting up
properly. The phone cannot successfully start up unless it is connected to the Ethernet network and it has
registered with a Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.
These sections can assist you in determining the reason the phone is unable to start up properly:

Identifying Error Messages
As the phone cycles through the startup process, you can access status messages that might provide you
with information about the cause of a problem. See Status Messages Screen, page 7-3 for instructions
about accessing status messages and for a list of potential errors, their explanations, and their solutions.
Checking Network Connectivity
If the network is down between the phone and the TFTP server or Cisco Unified Communications
Manager, the phone cannot start up properly. Ensure that the network is currently running.
Verifying TFTP Server Settings
You can determine the IP address of the TFTP server used by the phone by pressing the Settings button
on the phone, choosing Network Configuration > IPv4, and scrolling to the TFTP Server 1 option.
If you have assigned a static IP address to the phone, you must manually enter a setting for the TFTP
Server 1 option. See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5.
If you are using DHCP, the phone obtains the address for the TFTP server from the DHCP server. Check
the IP address configured in Option 150.
You can also enable the phone to use an alternate TFTP server. Such a setting is particularly useful if the
phone was recently moved from one location to another. See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5 for
instructions.
Verifying IP Addressing and Routing
You should verify the IP addressing and routing settings on the phone. If you are using DHCP, the DHCP
server should provide these values. If you have assigned a static IP address to the phone, you must enter
these values manually.
On the Cisco Unified IP Phone, press the Settings button, choose Network Configuration, and look at
the following options:
•
DHCP Server—If you have assigned a static IP address to the phone, you do not need to enter a value
for the DHCP Server option. However, if you are using a DHCP server, this option must have a value.
If it does not, check your IP routing and VLAN configuration. Refer to Troubleshooting Switch Port
Problems, available at this URL: http://www.cisco.com/warp/customer/473/53.shtml
•
IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Router—If you have assigned a static IP address to the phone,
you must manually enter settings for these options. See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5 for
instructions.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk648/tk361/technologies_tech_note09186a00800f0804.shtml#41
Verifying DNS Settings
If you are using DNS to refer to the TFTP server or to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you
must ensure that you have specified a DNS server. Verify this setting by pressing the Settings button on
the phone, choosing Network Configuration, and scrolling to the DNS Server 1 option. You should also
verify that there is a CNAME entry in the DNS server for the TFTP server and for the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.
You must also ensure that DNS is configured to do reverse look-ups.
Verifying Cisco Unified Communications Manager Settings
On the Cisco Unified IP Phone, press the Settings button, choose Device Configuration, and look at the
Unified CM Configuration options. The Cisco Unified IP Phone attempts to open a TCP connection to
all the Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers that are part of the assigned
Cisco Unified Communications Manager group. If none of these options contain IP addresses or show
Active or Standby, the phone is not properly registered with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
See Registering the Phone with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, page 9-5 for tips on resolving
this problem.
Cisco CallManager and TFTP Services Are Not Running
If the Cisco CallManager or TFTP services are not running, phones may not be able to start up properly.
However, in such a situation, it is likely that you are experiencing a system-wide failure, and that other
phones and devices are unable to start up properly.
If the Cisco CallManager service is not running, all devices on the network that rely on it to make phone
calls will be affected. If the TFTP service is not running, many devices will not be able to start up
successfully.
To start a service, follow these steps:
Procedure
Step 1
From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Cisco Unified Serviceability
from the Navigation drop-down list.
Step 2
Choose Tools > Control Center - Network Services.
Step 3
Choose the primary Cisco Unified Communications Manager server from the Server drop-down list.
The window displays the service names for the server that you chose, the status of the services, and a
service control panel to stop or start a service.
Step 4
If a service has stopped, click its radio button and then click the Start button.
The Service Status symbol changes from a square to an arrow.

Creating a New Configuration File
If you continue to have problems with a particular phone that other suggestions in this chapter do not
resolve, the configuration file may be corrupted.
To create a new configuration file, follow these steps:
Procedure
Step 1
From Cisco Unified Communications Manager, choose Device > Phone > Find to locate the phone
experiencing problems.
Step 2
Choose Delete to remove the phone from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.
Step 3
Add the phone back to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. See Adding Phones to the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Database, page 2-11 for details.
Step 4
Power cycle the phone.
Note
•
When you remove a phone from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, its
configuration file is deleted from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager TFTP server. The
phone’s directory number or numbers remain in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager
database. They are called “unassigned DNs” and can be used for other devices. If unassigned DNs
are not used by other devices, delete them from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager
database. You can use the Route Plan Report to view and delete unassigned reference numbers.
Refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide for more information.
•
Changing the buttons on a phone button template, or assigning a different phone button template to
a phone, may result in directory numbers that are no longer accessible from the phone. The directory
numbers are still assigned to the phone in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, but
there is no button on the phone with which calls can be answered. These directory numbers should
be removed from the phone and deleted if necessary.
Registering the Phone with Cisco Unified Communications Manager
A Cisco Unified IP Phone can register with a Cisco Unified Communications Manager server only if the
phone has been added to the server or if auto-registration is enabled. Review the information and
procedures in the Adding Phones to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Database, page 2-11
to ensure that the phone has been added to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.
To verify that the phone is in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, choose Device >
Phone > Find from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to search for the phone
based on its MAC Address. For information about determining a MAC address, see Determining the
MAC Address of a Cisco Unified IP Phone, page 2-15.

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
Cisco Unified IP Phone Resets Unexpectedly
If the phone is already in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, its configuration file
may be damaged. See Creating a New Configuration File, page 9-5 for assistance.
Symptom: Cisco Unified IP Phone Unable to Obtain IP Address
If a phone is unable to obtain an IP address when it starts up, the phone may be not be on the same
network or VLAN as the DHCP server, or the switch port to which the phone is connected may be
disabled.
Make sure that the network or VLAN to which the phone is connected has access to the DHCP server,
and make sure that the switch port is enabled.
Cisco Unified IP Phone Resets Unexpectedly
If users report that their phones are resetting during calls or while idle on their desk, you should
investigate the cause. If the network connection and Cisco Unified Communications Manager
connection are stable, a Cisco Unified IP Phone should not reset on its own.
Typically, a phone resets if it has problems connecting to the Ethernet network or to
Cisco Unified Communications Manager. These sections can help you identify the cause of a phone
resetting in your network:
•
Verifying Physical Connection, page 9-6
•
Identifying Intermittent Network Outages, page 9-6
•
Verifying DHCP Settings, page 9-7
•
Checking Static IP Address Settings, page 9-7

•
Verifying that the Phones Have Not Been Intentionally Reset, page 9-7
•
Eliminating DNS or Other Connectivity Errors, page 9-8
•
Checking Power Connection, page 9-8
Verifying Physical Connection
Verify that the Ethernet connection to which the Cisco Unified IP Phone is connected is up. For example,
check whether the particular port or switch to which the phone is connected is down and that the switch
is not rebooting. Also make sure that there are no cable breaks.
Identifying Intermittent Network Outages
Intermittent network outages affect data and voice traffic differently. Your network might have been
experiencing intermittent outages without detection. If so, data traffic can resend lost packets and verify
that packets are received and transmitted. However, voice traffic cannot recapture lost packets. Rather
than retransmitting a lost network connection, the phone resets and attempts to reconnect its network
connection.
If you are experiencing problems with the voice network, you should investigate whether an existing
problem is simply being exposed.

Verifying DHCP Settings
Follow this process to help determine if the phone has been properly configured to use DHCP:
1.
Verify that you have properly configured the phone to use DHCP. See Network Configuration Menu,
page 4-5 for more information.
2.
Verify that the DHCP server has been set up properly.
3.
Verify the DHCP lease duration. Cisco recommends that you set it to 8 days.
Cisco Unified IP Phones 7971G-GE and 7970G send messages with request type 151 to renew their
DHCP address leases. If the DHCP server expects messages with request type 150, the lease will be
denied, forcing the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7971G-GE and 7970G to restart and request a new IP
address from the DHCP server.
Checking Static IP Address Settings
If the phone has been assigned a static IP address, verify that you have entered the correct settings. See
Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5 for more information.
Verifying Voice VLAN Configuration
If the Cisco Unified IP Phone appears to reset during heavy network usage (for example, following
extensive web surfing on a computer connected to same switch as phone), it is likely that you do not have
a voice VLAN configured.
Isolating the phones on a separate auxiliary VLAN increases the quality of the voice traffic. See
Understanding How the Cisco Unified IP Phone Interacts with the VLAN, page 2-3 for details.
Verifying that the Phones Have Not Been Intentionally Reset
If you are not the only administrator with access to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you should
verify that no one else has intentionally reset the phones.
You can check whether a Cisco Unified IP Phone received a command from
Cisco Unified Communications Manager to reset by pressing the Settings button on the phone and
choosing Status > Network Statistics. If the phone was recently reset one of these messages appears:
•
Reset-Reset—Phone closed due to receiving a Reset/Reset from Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration.
•
Reset-Restart—Phone closed due to receiving a Reset/Restart from Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration.

Troubleshooting Cisco Unified IP Phone Security
Eliminating DNS or Other Connectivity Errors
If the phone continues to reset, follow these steps to eliminate DNS or other connectivity errors:
Procedure
Step 1
Use the Erase softkey to reset phone settings to their default values. See Resetting or Restoring the Cisco
Unified IP Phone, page 9-14 for details.
Step 2
Modify DHCP and IP settings:
a.
Disable DHCP. See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5 for instructions.
b.
Assign static IP values to the phone. See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5 for instructions.
Use the same default router setting used for other functioning Cisco Unified IP Phones.
c.
Assign TFTP server. See Network Configuration Menu, page 4-5 for instructions. Use the same
TFTP server used for other functioning Cisco Unified IP Phones.
Step 3
On the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server, verify that the local host files have the correct
Cisco Unified Communications Manager server name mapped to the correct IP address.
Step 4
From Cisco Unified Communications Manager, choose System > Server and verify that the server is
referred to by its IP address and not by its DNS name.
Step 5
From Cisco Unified Communications Manager, choose Device > Phone and verify that you have
assigned the correct MAC address to this Cisco Unified IP Phone. For information about determining a
MAC address, see Determining the MAC Address of a Cisco Unified IP Phone, page 2-15.
Step 6
Power cycle the phone.
Checking Power Connection
In most cases, a phone will restart if it powers up by using external power but loses that connection and
switches to PoE. Similarly, a phone may restart if it powers up by using PoE and then gets connected to
an external power supply.

Summary
Explanation
Daisy-chaining IP phones
Cisco does not support connecting an IP phone to another IP phone
through the PC port. Each IP phone should directly connect to a
switch port. If phones are connected together in a line (by using the
PC port), the phones will not work.
Poor quality when calling mobile In Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you can configure the
phones using the G.729 protocol network to use the G.729 protocol (the default is G.711). When
using G.729, calls between an IP phone and a mobile phone will
have poor voice quality. Use G.729 only when absolutely necessary.
Prolonged broadcast storms
cause IP phones to reset, or be
unable to make or answer a call
A prolonged Layer 2 broadcast storm (lasting several minutes) on
the voice VLAN may cause IP phones to reset, lose an active call,
or be unable to initiate or answer a call. Phones may not come up
until a broadcast storm ends.

Summary
Explanation
Moving a network connection
from the phone to a workstation
If you are powering your phone through the network connection,
you must be careful if you decide to unplug the phone’s network
connection and plug the cable into a desktop computer.
Caution
The computer’s network card cannot receive power
through the network connection; if power comes through
the connection, the network card can be destroyed. To
protect a network card, wait 10 seconds or longer after
unplugging the cable from the phone before plugging it
into a computer. This delay gives the switch enough time
to recognize that there is no longer a phone on the line
and to stop providing power to the cable.
Changing the telephone
configuration
By default, the network configuration options are locked to prevent
users from making changes that could impact their network
connectivity. You must unlock the network configuration options
before you can configure them. See Unlocking and Locking
Options, page 4-3 for details.
LCD display issues
If the display appears to have rolling lines or a wavy pattern, it might
be interacting with certain types of older fluorescent lights in the
building. Moving the phone away from the lights, or replacing the
lights, should resolve the problem.
Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency
(DTMF) delay
When you are on a call that requires keypad input, if you press the
keys too quickly, some of them might not be recognized.
Codec mismatch between the
phone and another device
The RxType and the TxType statistics show the codec that is being
used for a conversation between this Cisco Unified IP phone and the
other device. The values of these statistics should match. If they do
not, verify that the other device can handle the codec conversation
or that a transcoder is in place to handle the service.
See Call Statistics Screen, page 7-15 for information about
displaying these statistics.
Sound sample mismatch
between the phone and another
device
The RxSize and the TxSize statistics show the size of the voice
packets that are being used in a conversation between this
Cisco Unified IP phone and the other device. The values of these
statistics should match.
See Call Statistics Screen, page 7-15 for information about
displaying these statistics.
Gaps in voice calls
Check the AvgJtr and the MaxJtr statistics. A large variance
between these statistics might indicate a problem with jitter on the
network or periodic high rates of network activity.
See Call Statistics Screen, page 7-15 for information about
displaying these statistics.

The phone receives power from an external power supply
•
The phone is powered down (the power supply is disconnected)
In this case, the switch port on the phone can become disabled and
the following message will appear in the switch console log:
HALF_DUX_COLLISION_EXCEED_THRESHOLD
To resolve this problem, re-enable the port from the switch.
One-way audio
When at least one person in a call does not receive audio, IP
connectivity between phones is not established. Check the
configurations in routers and switches to ensure that IP connectivity
is properly configures.

Using the Quality Report Tool
Using the Quality Report Tool
The Quality Report Tool (QRT) is a voice quality and general problem-reporting tool for the
Cisco Unified IP Phone. The QRT feature is installed as part of the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager installation.
You can configure users’ Cisco Unified IP Phones with QRT. When you do so, users can report problems
with phone calls by pressing the QRT softkey. This softkey is available only when the
Cisco Unified IP Phone is in the Connected, Connected Conference, Connected Transfer, and/or
OnHook states.
When a user presses the QRT softkey, a list of problem categories appears. The user selects the
appropriate problem category, and this feedback is logged in an XML file. Actual information logged
depends on the user selection and whether the destination device is a Cisco Unified IP Phone.
For more information about using QRT, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and
Services Guide.
Monitoring the Voice Quality of Calls
To measure the voice quality of calls that are sent and received within the network, Cisco Unified IP
Phones use these statistical metrics that are based on concealment events. The DSP plays concealment
frames to mask frame loss in the voice packet stream.
•
Concealment Ratio metrics—Show the ratio of concealment frames over total speech frames. An
interval conceal ratio is calculated every 3 seconds.
•
Concealed Second metrics—Show the number of seconds in which the DSP plays concealment
frames due to lost frames. A severely “concealed second” is a second in which the DSP plays more
than five percent concealment frames.
•
MOS-LQK metrics—Use a numeric score to estimate the relative voice listening quality. The Cisco
Unified IP Phone calculates the mean opinion score (MOS) for listening quality (LQK) based
audible concealment events due to frame loss in the preceding 8 seconds, and includes perceptual
weighting factors such as codec type and frame size.
MOS LQK scores are produced by a Cisco proprietary algorithm, Cisco Voice Transmission Quality
(CVTQ) index. Depending on the MOS LQK version number, these scores might be compliant with
the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standard P.564. This standard defines evaluation
methods and performance accuracy targets that predict listening quality scores based on observation
of actual network impairment.
Note
Concealment ratio and concealment seconds are primary measurements based on frame loss while MOS
LQK scores project a “human-weighted” version of the same information on a scale from 5 (excellent)
to 1 (bad) for measuring listening quality.
Listening quality scores (MOS LQK) relate to the clarity or sound of the received voice signal.
Conversational quality scores (MOS CQ such as G.107) include impairment factors, such as delay, that
degrade the natural flow of conversation.
You can access voice quality metrics from the Cisco Unified IP Phone by using the Call Statistics screen
(see Call Statistics Screen, page 7-15) or remotely by using Streaming Statistics (see Monitoring the
Cisco Unified IP Phone Remotely, page 8-1).

Monitoring the Voice Quality of Calls
Using Voice Quality Metrics
To use the metrics for monitoring voice quality, note the typical scores under normal conditions of zero
packet loss and use the metrics as a baseline for comparison.
It is important to distinguish significant changes from random changes in metrics. Significant changes
are scores that change about 0.2 MOS or greater and persist in calls that last longer than 30 seconds.
Conceal Ratio changes should indicate greater than 3 percent frame loss.
MOS LQK scores can vary based on the codec that the Cisco Unified IP Phone uses. The following
codecs provide these maximum MOS LQK scores under normal conditions with zero frame loss:
•
For Cisco Unified Phones 7975G, 7965G, and 7945G:
– G.711 gives 4.5 score
– G.722 gives 4.5
– G.728/iLBC gives 3.9
– G.729A/AB gives 3.8
•
For Cisco Unified Phones 7971G-GE and 7970G:
– G.711 codec gives 4.5 score
– G.729A/AB gives 3.7
Note
•
CVTQ does not support wideband (7 kHz) speech codecs, as ITU has not defined the extension of
the technique to wideband. Therefore, MOS scores that correspond to G.711 performance are
reported for G.722 calls to allow basic quality monitoring, rather than not reporting an MOS score.
•
Reporting G.711-scale MOS scores for wideband calls through the use of CVTQ allows basic
quality classifications to be indicated as good/normal or bad/abnormal. Calls with high scores
(approximately 4.5) indicate high quality/low packet loss, and lower scores (approximately 3.5)
indicate low quality/high packet loss.
•
Unlike MOS, the Conceal Ratio and Concealed Seconds metrics remain valid and useful for both
wideband and narrowband calls.
A Conceal Ratio of zero indicates that the IP network is delivering frames and packets on time with no
loss.
Troubleshooting Tips
When you observe significant and persistent changes to metrics, use Table 9-5 for general
troubleshooting information:

Table 9-5
Changes to Voice Quality Metrics
Metric Change
Condition
MOS LQK scores decrease
significantly
Network impairment from packet loss or high jitter:
•
Average MOS LQK decreases could indicate widespread and
uniform impairment.
•
Individual MOS LQK decreases indicate bursty impairment.
Cross-check with Conceal Ratio and Conceal Seconds for evidence
of packet loss and jitter.
MOS LQK scores decrease
significantly
•
Check to see if the phone is using a different codec than
expected (RxType and TxType).
•
Check to see if the MOS LQK version changed after a firmware
upgrade.
Conceal Ratio and Conceal
Seconds increase significantly
•
Network impairment from packet loss or high jitter.
Conceal Ratio is near or at zero,
but the voice quality is poor.
•
Noise or distortion in the audio channel such as echo or audio
levels.
•
Tandem calls that undergo multiple encode/decode such as calls
to a mobile network or calling card network.
•
Acoustic problems coming from a speakerphone, handsfree
mobile phone or wireless headset.
Check packet transmit (TxCnt) and packet receive (RxCnt) counters
to verify that voice packets are flowing.
Note
Voice quality metrics do not account for noise or distortion, only frame loss.
Where to Go for More Troubleshooting Information
If you have additional questions about troubleshooting the Cisco Unified IP Phones, several Cisco.com
web sites can provide you with more tips. Choose from the sites available for your access level.

Cleaning the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Cleaning the Cisco Unified IP Phone
To clean your Cisco Unified IP phone, use a soft, dry cloth to wipe the phone and the touchscreen (or
phone screen, whichever is applicable). Do not apply liquids or powders directly on the phone. As with
all non-weather-proof electronics, liquids and powders can damage the components and cause failures.
Disable the touchscreen or phone screen before cleaning it so that you will not inadvertently choose a
feature from the pressure of the cleaning cloth. To disable the touchscreen (or phone screen) so that it
will not respond to touch, press the Display button for more than one second. The phone displays
Touchscreen Disabled (or Phone Screen Disabled) and the Display button flashes green.
After one minute, the touchscreen (or phone screen) automatically re-enables itself. To re-enable the
touchscreen (or phone screen) before that, press the flashing Display button for more than one second.
The phone displays Touchscreen Enabled (or Phone Screen Enabled).

sections to ensure that the phones are set up properly for your users:
•
Adding Language Overlays to Phone Buttons, page C-1
•
Installing the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale Installer, page C-1
•
Support for International Call Logging, page C-2
Adding Language Overlays to Phone Buttons
To support the needs of international users, the button labels on the Cisco Unified IP Phones exhibit
icons rather than text to indicate the purposes of the buttons. You can purchase language-specific text
overlays to add to a phone. To order these language-specific overlays, go to this website:
http://www.overlaypro.com/cisco_systems?b=1
Note
Phone overlays are available only for languages in which the Cisco Unified IP Phone software has been
localized. All languages may not be immediately available, so continue to check the website for updates.
Installing the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale
Installer
If you are using Cisco Unified IP Phones in a locale other than English (United States), you must install
the locale-specific version of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale Installer on every
Cisco Unified Communications Manager server in the cluster. Installing the locale installer ensures that
you have the latest translated text, user and network locales, and country-specific phone tones available
for the Cisco Unified IP Phones. You can find locale-specific versions of the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Locale Installer at:
http://www.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/telephony/callmgr/locale-installer.shtml.
For more information, refer to Software Upgrades in the Communications Operating System
Administration Guide.

Support for International Call Logging
Note
All languages may not be immediately available, so continue to check the website for updates.
Support for International Call Logging
If your phone system is configured for international call logging, the call logs, redial, or call directory
entries may display a “+” symbol to represent the international escape code for your location. Depending
on the configuration for your phone system, the “+” may be replaced with the correct international
dialing code, or you may need to edit the number before dialing to manually replace the “+” with the
international escape code for your location. In addition, while the call log or directory entry may display
the full international number for the received call, the phone display may show the shortened local
version of the number, without international or country codes.

Basic Phone Administration Steps
This appendix provides minimum, basic configuration steps for you to do the following:
•
Add a new user to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration
•
Configure a new phone for that user
•
Associate that user to that phone
•
Complete other basic end-user configuration tasks
The procedures provide one method for performing these tasks and are not the only way to perform these
tasks. They are a streamlined approach to get a new user and corresponding phone running on the system.
These procedures are designed to be used on a mature Cisco Unified Communications Manager system
where calling search spaces, partitions, and other complicated configuration have already been done and
are in place for existing users.
This section contains these topics:
•
Example User Information for these Procedures, page E-1
•
Adding a User to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, page E-2
•
Configuring the Phone, page E-3
•
Performing Final End User Configuration Steps, page E-7
Example User Information for these Procedures
In the procedures that follow, examples are given when possible to illustrate some of the steps. Sample
user and phone information used throughout these procedures includes:
•
User’s Name: John Doe
•
User ID: johndoe
•
Phone model: 7961G
•
Protocol: SCCP
•
MAC address listed on phone: 00127F576611
•
Five-digit internal telephone number: 26640

Basic Phone Administration Steps
Adding a User to Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Adding a User to Cisco Unified Communications Manager
This section describes steps for adding a user to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Follow one
of the procedures in this section, depending on your operating system and the manner in which you are
adding the user:
•
Adding a User From an External LDAP Directory, page E-2
•
Adding a User Directly to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, page E-3
Adding a User From an External LDAP Directory
If you added a user to an LDAP Directory (a non-Cisco Unified Communications Server directory), you
can immediately synchronize that directory to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager on which
you are adding this same user and the user’s phone by following these steps:
Note
Before you perform the following procedure, you must check the Enable Synchronizing from LDAP
Server check box in the LDAP System Configuration window of Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration (System > LDAP > LDAP System).
Procedure
Step 1
Log onto Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.
Step 2
Choose System > LDAP > LDAP Directory.
Step 3
Use the Find button to locate your LDAP directory.
Step 4
Click on the LDAP directory name.
Step 5
Click Perform Full Sync Now.
Note
Step 6
If you do not need to immediately synchronize the LDAP Directory to the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, the LDAP Directory Synchronization Schedule on the LDAP
Directory window determines when the next auto-synchronization is scheduled. However, the
synchronization must occur before you can associate a new user to a device.
Proceed to Configuring the Phone, page E-3.
For more information and limitations on configuring LDAP system, refer to the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Administration Guide, LDAP System Configuration, LDAP Directory
Configuration, and LDAP Authentication Configuration and Cisco Unified Communications Manager

This field should contain the same number that appears in the Telephone Number field
on the User Configuration window.
Example: 26640 is the directory number of user John Doe in the example above.
c.
From the Route Partition drop-down list, choose the partition to which the directory number
belongs. If you do not want to restrict access to the directory number, choose <None> for the
partition.
d.
From the Calling Search Space drop-down list (Directory Number Settings pane of the Directory
Number Configuration window), choose the appropriate calling search space. A calling search space
comprises a collection of partitions that are searched for numbers that are called from this directory
number. The value that you choose applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

blank to have the system display the phone extension.
– External Phone Number Mask—Indicate phone number (or mask) that is used to send Caller ID
information when a call is placed from this line.
You can enter a maximum of 24 number and “X” characters. The Xs represent the directory
number and must appear at the end of the pattern.
Example: Using the john doe extension in the example above, if you specify a mask of
408902XXXX, an external call from extension 6640 displays a caller ID number of
4089026640.
Note
This setting applies only to the current device unless you check the check box at right
(Update Shared Device Settings) and click the Propagate Selected button. (The check
box at right displays only if other devices share this directory number.)
