NOTE The Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 features vary, depending on the type of call control
system that you are using. This document describes using the Cisco SPA 525G/
525G2 with a SCCP phone system, such as the Cisco Unified Communications
500 Series. If you are using the Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 phone with the Cisco
SPA9000 Voice System or a BroadSoft or Asterisk system, see the Cisco Small
Business IP Phone SPA 525G/SPA 525G2 User Guide (SIP).
This document covers the Cisco Small Business IP Phones when used as part of a
system such as the Cisco Smart Business Communications System (SBCS). In this
system, the phone network is managed by equipment such as the Cisco Unified
Communications 500 Series. The Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series uses
a protocol called Smart Phone Control Protocol (SPCP) to manage voice, data, and
video traffic.
Setup of the phone network, including advanced configuration of the phones, is
performed using Cisco Configuration Assistant (CCA) software. This software is
available on Cisco.com. Documents for using CCA are listed in Appendix A,
“Where to Go From Here.”

Overview of the Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 IP Phone
The Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 IP Phone is a full-featured VoIP (Voice over Internet
Protocol) phone that provide voice communication over an IP network. It provides
traditional features, such as call forwarding, redialing, speed dialing, transferring
calls, conference calling and accessing voice mail. Calls can be made or received
with a handset, headset or speaker.
The Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 phone is connected to the network through its
Ethernet connection or the built-in Wireless-G connection. If you are using the
Wireless-G connection, a separate power adapter (PA-100) is required. The Cisco
SPA 525G provides an additional Ethernet port that allows a computer to be
connected to the network through the IP phone. (This option is only available when
phone is connected to the network via the wired Ethernet connection).
Unlike traditional phones, the Cisco SPA 525G requires a separate power source.
Either connect your phone to an Ethernet switch that provides Power over Ethernet
(PoE), or use a separate power adapter (PA-100).
The Cisco SPA 525G has a 320 x 240 color, 3.2" inch LCD screen and provides up
to five telephone extensions. It provides the following hardware features:
•
2 Ethernet 10/100 Mbps ports
•
802.3af Power over Ethernet support

If you are using Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power the phone, the phone will
receive power when you connect an Ethernet cable from the phone’s SW port to a
switch in your network that provides PoE. See the “Connecting Your Phone to the
Wired Network” section on page 27.
Connecting Your Phone to the Computer Network
Connecting Your Phone to the Wired Network
You connect your phone to the local network by using an Ethernet cable:
STEP 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the back of the base station into the slot marked “SW.”
This port is labeled #4 on Figure 2 on page 21.
STEP 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the appropriate device on your
network, such as a network switch.
NOTE The Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 provides a second Ethernet port. You can connect a
PC to this port to provide network access to the PC. This port is labeled #4 in the
Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 IP Phone Connections figure. This port cannot be used
when the phone is connected to the network via the built-in Wireless-G client.
Connecting Your Phone to the Wireless Network
NOTE The PC port is not supported in wireless operation. The PC port is only supported
in a wired operation.
The Cisco SPA 525G/525G2 phone supports a direct connection to the wireless
network. Before setting up the wireless network, you need to know the wireless
security type for your router. The phone works with the following security types:
•
WEP—Wired Equivalent Privacy. With this type of security, you need to
enter a 64 or 128-bit key on the phone (or a more easily remembered
passphrase to generate the key). The phone then authenticates with your
router to provide a secure connection.
•
WPA—Wi-Fi Protected Access. The phone supports WPA PSK, WPA2 PSK,
WPA Enterprise, and WPA2 Enterprise. With this type of security, you will at
the very minimum be required to enter a password on the phone. The
phone then authenticates with your router to provide a secure connection.

Determining Your Wireless Router Security Type
If you do not know your wireless router security type, you need to log in to the
router interface to get this information. The steps below are written for a Linksys
router, but procedures for other routers should be similar.
STEP 1 Log in to your wireless router’s web interface using a web browser. Your computer
must be connected to your wireless network. Enter the IP address of the wireless
router in the browser toolbar.
STEP 2 If required, enter the user name and password. (By default, Linksys routers
typically use “admin” for the user name and “admin” for the password.)
STEP 3 View the Wireless tab or screen. Note the network name (SSID) and the type of
security (WEP, WPA Personal, or WPA2 Personal).
If your router is using WEP, note the following information:
•
WEP encryption: 64 bit or 128 bit. You need to choose this later.
•
Default transmit key, or TX key: The default key (of the 4) that the router
transmits to authenticate. This value will be 1, 2, 3, or 4.
•
Passphrase and keys: You choose one of two methods to enter the WEP
key. You either directly enter the WEP key, or enter a more simple
passphrase to generate the WEP key.

STEP 7 Press Save to save the profile.
Verifying Phone Startup
After receiving power and network connectivity, the phone executes a boot-up
sequence. During this sequence, the display shows the Cisco logo. All of the lights
on the phone will flash. After the sequence, which should take about five seconds,
the phone will display the standard menu for the phone. The date, name and
number of the phone appear on the top line of the LCD screen. At the bottom of the
LCD screen, softkeys appear over their associated soft buttons.
If the phone does not display this screen, confirm your installation and
connections. If these are correct, try unplugging the phone and plugging it back in
again. If you still don’t see the display, then contact your Phone Administrator or
Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP).
Your phone ships with pre-installed firmware. However, later firmware versions
may be available that add features and fix problems with your phone. You may
need to upgrade your phone to the latest firmware for ideal performance.
!
CAUTION If you are using your phone with an Internet Telephony Service Provider’s system,
do not upgrade your phone’s firmware without consulting your service provider.
Your provider may automatically upgrade your phones without any action on your
part necessary.
Upgrading Your Phone’s Firmware
Firmware updates are done from the Cisco Configuration Assistant. For detailed
upgrade instructions, see the Cisco Configuration Assistant Smart Business
Communications System Administrator Guide for your software release. See the
