Introducing the Cisco Unified IP
Phones 6900 Series
Today, more organizations can take advantage of
Cisco Unified Communications, thanks to these
affordable IP endpoints. The Cisco Unified IP
Phones 6900 Series delivers cost-effective,
full-featured voice communication services,
and video communications on selected models,
in a clutter-free and earth-friendly, ergonomic
design (Figure 2).
Cisco Unified IP Phones 6900 Series endpoints
with two or more lines support single-call
per-line appearance to provide an easy user
experience for customers who are seeking
traditional telephony call interaction for
their organization. With single-call per-line
appearance, each enabled line supports one
call session at a time. For example, if you are
on an active call with two lines enabled on the
phone, another incoming call then “rolls over”
to your second line. If only one line is enabled
while you are on an active call, a second

incoming call is redirected to your voicemail.
This experience, which is representative of a
traditional telephony call interactive experience,
is ideal if you are currently on analog or digital
telephony systems and would like to take
advantage of Cisco Collaboration Solutions, but
have delayed migration because of concerns
over the time and costs of user training in such a
migration.
All Cisco Unified IP Phones 6900 Series
endpoints are earth-friendly. They are made
with recyclable and reground plastics, so they
are earth-responsible solutions. A deep-sleep
power option, on select models, reduces power
consumption by up to 50 percent in off-work
hours, a feature that is good for your company’s
profitability and good for the planet too.
The Cisco Unified IP Phones 6900 Series can
enable your business to adopt and expand its
investment in Cisco Unified Communications,
so you can improve collaboration, boost
productivity, and reduce operating costs
through centralized administration. Selected
endpoints in the portfolio support basic XML

Cisco Unified IP Phones 7900 Series
If your business requires High-definition voice
(HD voice), vibrant color displays, Gigabit
Ethernet connectivity and more than basic
support for endpoint applications, the Cisco
Unified IP Phones 7900 Series is the portfolio
for you.
The Cisco Unified IP Phones 7900 Series
(Figure 9) delivers these advanced capabilities,
on selected models, while also supporting
multiple-call per-line appearance on most
models. With multiple-call per-line appearance,
you can take advantage of advanced call
navigation capabilities with support for multiple
call sessions on a per-line basis. For example,
on a two-line endpoint, you can be on an
active call and navigate to pick up a second
incoming call on the same line, while the first call
is automatically placed on hold. You can then
switch back and forth between these two call
sessions, as required. This experience offers
your organization sophisticated and powerful
communication capabilities that are not typically
available from traditional telephony or hybrid
systems.

The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925GEX (Figure 13) builds upon the capabilities of
the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G
and extends Cisco Collaboration capabilities
to hazardous environments. This rugged,
feature-rich IP phone provides rich-media,
collaborative communications, specifically for
mobile workers, and is certified for deployment
in more challenging industrial environments
such as oil refineries and chemical, utility, and
manufacturing facilities.
The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G-EX
incorporates industry-standard yellow styling
for fast recognition in emergencies. The phone
is designed with employee safety in mind.
Certifications include:
• Atmospheres Explosibles (ATEX) Zone
2/Class 22 certification, which protects
employees from explosion risk in areas with
an explosive atmosphere by preventing
ignition of gas vapors by the phone
• Canadian Standards Association Class 1
Division 2 certification, which permits use of
the phone in an environment where explosive
gases are periodically present
Cisco Unified IP Phone Portfolio | © 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. and/or its affiliates.
• Ingress Protection Code (IP64) rating, which
means the device is sealed against dust and
water
• An applications key that provides direct
access to productivity-building applications
such as Push-to-Talk and Lone Worker
The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7926G
(Figure 14) builds upon the features of the Cisco
Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G, delivering
many of the same features and capabilities.
New with the IP Phone 7926G is the addition
of a two-dimensional (2D) EA 11 bar-code
scanner. Unlike a 1D bar-code scanner, which
typically uses a laser to read the bar code, the
2D scanner uses LEDs to illuminate the image
and take a picture. The phone then decodes the
image and presents the barcode information
to the backend systems application. The
addition of the 2D scanner makes the Cisco
Unified Wireless IP Phone 7926G ideal for
environments that require scanning capability
and unified communications in a single, costeffective device. This device consolidation
increases productivity, reduces total cost of
ownership, and enhances responsiveness in
customer interactions.

The Cisco Unified IP Phones 8900 Series
endpoints can help organizations reduce costs
in numerous ways, including:
• Energy cost savings: In off hours, a
deep-sleep power option reduces power
consumption compared to the endpoint in
active state during the work day. Selected
models are also IEEE PoE Power Class 1
devices. These features reduce power
consumption, benefitting your profitability and
the planet.
• Easy and cost-effective scalability: An
optional Cisco Unified IP Color Key Expansion
Module accessory provides easy expansion
of programmable line and feature keys.
Instead of provisioning additional phones in
busy environments, simply add an expansion
module to your Cisco Unified IP Phones 8900
Series endpoint.
• Reduced infrastructure costs: Integrated
switch ports support a high-speed network
connection and co-location of a multimedia
PC, so PC traffic can run through the switch
port of the phone and only one cable drop is
required back to the wiring closet.

Enable No Compromise Collaboration
Everywhere
Now that most organizations are reaping
the benefits of server virtualization, many
companies are setting their sights on desktop
virtualization. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
is the fastest-growing approach to desktop
virtualization, because it allows IT departments
to centrally host and manage user desktops on
a virtual machine that resides in the data center.
Enable No
Compromise
Collaboration
Everywhere
Extend Access to Rich
Communications
By some estimates, VDI may save companies
as much as 70 percent in ongoing maintenance
costs across the infrastructure and 30 percent
in annual hardware and software acquisition
costs. Experts predict that by 2013, more than
50 million users—more than 10 percent of the
total user population—will access corporate
resources through VDI (http://www.cisco.com/
en/US/solutions/collateral/ns340/ns517/ns224/
ns836/solution_overview_c22-617932.pdf).
Moving the desktop to the data center can do
more than lower the total cost of PC ownership.
Virtual desktops can also:

• Enhance security by keeping corporate
information in the data center rather than on
physical devices
• Improve user productivity and business
agility by cost-effectively extending richmedia and video applications to more users
• Enable simpler and significantly faster
provisioning of desktops
• Make it possible for end users to choose their
own devices through which to access their
virtual desktops
• However, virtual desktop infrastructures have
fallen short when it comes to supporting
robust collaboration capabilities. Cisco
Virtualization Experience Infrastructure
(VXI) addresses the collaborative needs of
today’s workforce. This complete, end-toend, service-optimized system combines
the power of the virtualized collaborative
workspace with a virtualization-aware network

Cisco VXC 2100
The compact Cisco VXC 2100 allows you to
take advantage of desktop virtualization without
sacrificing the communications capabilities
your organization needs to be competitive. The
Cisco VXC 2100 is a “zero-client” device, so it
has no resident computing power. The device
integrates into the base of select models of
Cisco Unified IP Phone 8900 or 9900 Series
endpoints (Figure 30). You simply plug it in
and the endpoint is transformed into a virtual
desktop that provides all the functions of
Cisco Unified Communications in a virtualized
environment. These productivity-building
applications include:
• Communication history
• Video and web conferencing
• Enhanced presence-enabled collaboration
The Cisco VXC 2100 is designed for workers
in static or shared workspaces. Because the
device attaches to the back of the phone and
is powered directly from the phone, it does
not take up any additional desk real estate.
Ethernet connectivity is also provided from the
phone. The device supports connections for
two monitors and four USB ports for keyboard,
mouse, and other peripherals. Depending
on the configuration, the device can be
simultaneously powered by a shared PoE
802.3at connection.
