Configuring Cisco IP Phones in
Cisco CallManager
Cisco IP Phones are full-featured telephones that can be plugged directly into
your IP network. Cisco CallManager supports the following Cisco IP Phones:
•
Cisco IP Phone 7900 Family
•
Cisco IP Phone 30 VIP
•
Cisco IP Phone 12 SP+
The following devices are also configured through the Cisco CallManager
Administration phone configuration pages:
Note
•
H.323 Clients
•
CTI Ports
Devices such as analog phones or fax machines must be connected
to a gateway (for example, a Cisco VG200 gateway).
If you are administering a large number of phones at your site, you can use the
Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) to perform batch add, modify, and delete
operations for Cisco IP Phones instead of manually adding and configuring each
phone using Cisco CallManager Administration.
BAT is a plug-in application for Cisco CallManager. If BAT is already installed
on your Cisco CallManager system, it can be accessed by opening
Cisco CallManager administration and selecting Application > BAT.

CTI Ports
CTI ports are virtual devices that are used by software-based Cisco CallManager
applications such as Cisco SoftPhone, Cisco AutoAttendant, and
Cisco IP Interactive Voice Response (IVR). CTI ports are configured through the
same Cisco CallManager Administration area as phones, but require fewer
configuration settings.
•
For general instructions on how to configure settings for CTI ports, refer to
the “Configuring Cisco IP Phones” section on page 46-5.
•
For information on how to configure CTI ports for use with a specific
application, such as Cisco SoftPhone, refer to the documentation and online
help provided with that application.
H.323 Clients
H.323 clients include Microsoft NetMeeting devices and NetVision Symbol
phones. They are configured through the same Cisco CallManager Administration
pages as phones, but require fewer configuration settings.
For instructions on how to configure H.323 clients, refer to the “Configuring
Cisco IP Phones” section on page 46-5.
Configuring Cisco IP Phones
When connecting a Cisco IP Phone to your IP telephony network, you can choose
to allow the phone to auto-register itself with the Cisco CallManager database. By
enabling auto-registration, you can automatically add phones to the database.
Cisco CallManager Administration Guide
78-10450-02
46-5
Chapter 46
Configuring Cisco IP Phones in Cisco CallManager
Configuring Cisco IP Phones
However, in many cases, you might not want to use auto-registration. For
example, auto-registration does not allow you to assign specific directory
numbers to a phone. Instead, numbers are assigned sequentially based on the next
available number designated in Cisco CallManager.
If you do not use auto-registration, you must manually add phones to the
Cisco CallManager database or use the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT). BAT is
a plug-in application that enables system administrators to perform batch add,
modify, and delete operations on large numbers of Cisco IP Phones. Refer to the
Bulk Administration Tool Guide for Cisco CallManager for detailed instructions
on using BAT.
You can also delete, reset, update, and copy phones from Cisco CallManager.
H.323 clients and CTI ports are also configured in this area of Cisco CallManager
Administration, and are covered in the procedures in this section.

Displaying the MAC Address of a Phone
The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique 12-character hexadecimal
number that identifies a Cisco IP Phone or other hardware device. It is located on
a label on the bottom of the phone (for example, 000B6A409C405 for
Cisco IP Phone 7900 Family models or SS-00-0B-64-09-C4-05 for
Cisco IP Phone SP 12+ and 30 VIP models). The MAC address is a required field
for Cisco IP Phone device configuration. When entering the MAC address in
Cisco CallManager fields, do not use spaces or dashes and do not include the "SS"
that may precede the MAC address on the label.

Configuring Call Forward
Call forward is a phone feature that allows a user to configure a Cisco IP Phone
so that all calls destined for it ring another phone. There are three types of call
forward:
•
Call forward all—Forwards all calls.
•
Call forward busy—Forwards calls only when the line is in use.
•
Call forward no answer—Forwards calls when the phone is not answered
after four rings.
Call waiting is configured on the Configure a Directory Number web page in

For example, if a user is on an active call at extension 1000, they can park the call
to a call park extension such as 1234. Anyone connected to the system can then
dial 1234 to retrieve the call.
To use call park, the call park extension (in this case, 1234) must be added in

Shared Line Appearances
Shared Line Appearances
In a Cisco CallManager system, a directory number (line) is considered to be a
shared line if it appears on more than one device in the same partition. This is
referred to as a shared line appearance.
For example, a shared line can be set up so that a directory number appears on line
1 of a manager’s phone and also on line 2 of their assistant’s phone. Another
example of a shared line would be a single incoming 800 number that is set up to
appear as line 2 on every sales representative’s phone in an office.
The following notes and tips apply to using shared line appearances with
Cisco CallManager:
•
You create a shared line appearance by assigning the same directory number
and partition to different lines on different devices.
•
If a line will be shared with other devices, the words Shared Line are
displayed in red next to the directory number in the Configure a Line Number
page in Cisco CallManager Administration.
•
If you change the Calling Search Space, Call Waiting, or Call Forward and
Pickup settings on any device that uses the shared line, the changes are
applied to all devices that use that shared line.
•
To stop sharing a line appearance on a device:
– If the shared line is not line 1, change the directory number or partition
number for the line and update the device.
– If the shared line is line 1, you must first delete the line from the device,
and then re-add the line with a new directory number or partition.
•
In the case of a shared line appearance, Delete will remove the directory
number only on the current device. Other devices are not affected.
•
Do not use shared line appearances on any phone that will be used with
Cisco WebAttendant.
