Cisco Unified IP Phones
Cisco Unified IP Phones as full-featured telephones, can plug directly into your IP network. H.323
clients, CTI ports, and Cisco IP Communicator represent software-based devices that you configure
similarly to the Cisco Unified IP Phones. Cisco Unified CallManager Administration allows you to
configure phone features such as call forwarding and call waiting for your phone devices. You can also
create phone button templates to assign a common button configuration to a large number of phones.
After you have added the phones, you can associate users with them. By associating a user with a phone,
you give that user control over that device.

Cisco Unified IP Phones
Cisco IP Communicator
You configure H.323 clients and CTI ports through the Phone Configuration window in Cisco Unified
CallManager Administration like you do phones, but they often require fewer configuration settings.
Note
Cisco recommends that you do not configure CTI ports or devices that use TAPI applications in a line
group.
For information on H.323 clients and shared line appearances, see the “Shared Line Appearance” section
on page 18-2.
For instructions on how to configure H.323 clients and CTI ports, refer to “Cisco Unified IP Phone
Configuration” in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide.
Cisco IP Communicator
Cisco IP Communicator, a software-based application, allows users to place and receive phone calls by
using their personal computers. Cisco IP Communicator depends upon the Cisco Unified CallManager
call-processing system to provide telephony features and voice-over-IP capabilities.
This interaction with Cisco Unified CallManager means that Cisco IP Communicator provides the same
functionality as a full-featured Cisco Unified IP Phone, while providing the portability of a desktop
application. Additionally, it means that you administer Cisco IP Communicator as a phone device by
using the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Phone Configuration window.
Cisco Unified Personal Communicator
Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, a desktop software application, provides access to voice, video,
document-sharing, and presence applications – all from a single, rich media interface. Cisco Unified
Personal Communicator relies on the Cisco Unified CallManager call-processing system to provide
telephony features and voice-over-IP capabilities.
This interaction with Cisco Unified CallManager enables Cisco Unified Personal Communicator to offer
integrated softphone capabilities and control of the physical IP phone of the user. Additionally, it means
you administer Cisco Unified Personal Communicator as a phone device by using the Cisco Unified
CallManager Administration Phone Configuration window.
Cisco TelePresence
The Cisco TelePresence system, a visual meeting room solution that comprises endpoints, IP Telephony
infrastructure technology, and user software applications, enables life-size, “you are there” video
teleconferencing. The Cisco TelePresence IP Phone represents an integral part of the solution that
provides the user interface for making connections to other Cisco TelePresence meeting rooms and for
driving the codec, the device that manages the plasma display screens, microphones, speakers, and
cameras that create the virtual meeting experience. The Cisco TelePresence IP Phone offers both
standard Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970 and Cisco TelePresence meeting connection functionality. As an
example, the Cisco TelePresence IP Phone user interface displays a schedule of the meetings for the day
and provides softkeys that are designed to enable and enhance the teleconference connections but then
can be used during the video teleconference to add audio meeting participants or to make voice calls.

Phone Button Templates
Cisco Unified CallManager includes several default phone button templates. When adding phones, you
can assign one of these templates to the phones or create a new template.
Creating and using templates provide a fast way to assign a common button configuration to a large
number of phones. For example, if users in your company do not use the conference feature, you can
create a template that reassigns this button to a different feature, such as speed dial.
To create a template, you must make a copy of an existing template and assign the template a unique
name. You can make changes to the custom templates that you created, and you can change the labels of
the default phone button templates. You cannot change the function of the buttons in the default
templates. You can rename existing templates and modify them to create new ones, update custom
templates to add or remove features, lines, or speed dials, and delete custom templates that are no longer
being used. When you update a template, the change affects all phones that use the template.
Renaming a template does not affect the phones that use that template. All Cisco Unified IP Phones that
use this template continue to use this template after it is renamed.
Make sure that all phones have at least one line that is assigned to each phone. Normally, this assignment
specifies button 1. Phones can have additional lines that are assigned, depending on the Cisco Unified
IP Phone model. Phones also generally have several features, such as speed dial, that are assigned to the
remaining buttons.
You can delete phone templates that are not currently assigned to any phone in your system if they are
not the only template for a given phone model. You cannot delete a template that is assigned to one or
more devices or the default template for a model (specified in the Device Defaults Configuration
window). You must reassign all Cisco Unified IP Phones that are using the template that you want to
delete to a different phone button template before you can delete the template.
Note
The standard phone button template for the Cisco Unified IP Phone model 7960, which supports the
Cisco Unified IP Phone model 7914 Expansion Module, includes buttons for both devices (up to 34
buttons).
Choose Dependency Records from the Related Links drop-down list box on the Phone Button Template
Configuration window to view the devices that are using a particular template.
Cisco Unified CallManager does not directly control all features on Cisco Unified IP Phones through
phone button templates. Refer to the Cisco Unified IP Phone Administration Guide for Cisco Unified
CallManager and other phone documentation for detailed information about individual Cisco Unified IP
Phone 7900 family models.

Phone Button Templates
Default Phone Button Templates
Although all Cisco Unified IP Phones support similar features, you implement these features differently
on various models. For example, some models configure features such as Hold or Transfer by using
phone button templates; other models have fixed buttons or onscreen program keys for these features that
are not configurable. Also, the maximum number of lines or speed dials that are supported differs for
some phone models. These differences require different phone button templates for specific models.
Each Cisco Unified IP Phone model comes with a default phone button template. You can use the default
templates as is to quickly configure phones. You can also copy and modify the templates to create custom
templates.
Custom templates enable you to make features available on some or all phones, restrict the use of certain
features to certain phones, configure a different number of lines or speed dials for some or all phones,
and so on, depending on how the phone will be used. For example, you may want to create a custom
template that can be applied to phones that will be used in conference rooms. Table 43-2 provides
descriptions of the standard phone button templates.

Guidelines for Customizing Phone Button Templates
Use the following guidelines when you are creating custom phone button templates:
•
Make sure that phone users receive a quick reference card or getting started guide that describes the
most basic features of the custom template. If you create a custom template for employees in your
company to use, make sure that it includes the following features and that you describe them on the
quick reference card that you create for your users:
– Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970/71, 7960/61, 7940/41, 7911, 7906—Line (one or more)
– Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912—Line, speed dial, hold, and settings
– Cisco Unified IP Phone 7910—Forward all
– Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905 and 7902—Line, speed dial, hold, and settings
– Cisco Wireless IP Phone 7920—Line (one or more)
– Cisco IP Phone model 12 SP+—Line (one or more), hold, call park, and forward all
– Cisco IP Phone model 30 VIP—Line (one or more), call park, and forward all
– Cisco VGC Virtual Phone and Cisco ATA 186—Line and speed dials
•
Consider the nature of each feature to determine how to configure your phone button template. You
may want to assign multiple buttons to speed dial and line; however, you usually require only one
of the other phone button features that are described in Table 43-3.
Table 43-3
Phone Button Feature Description
Feature
Description
AEC
If you are configuring a template for the Cisco IP Phone model 30 VIP,
you must include one occurrence of this feature and assign it to button
26. Auto echo cancellation (AEC) reduces the amount of feedback
that the called party receives when the calling party is using a
speakerphone. Users should press the AEC button on a Cisco IP Phone
model 30 SP+ when they are using speakerphone. Users do not need
to press this button when speakerphone is not in use. This feature
requires no configuration for it to work.
Answer/release
In conjunction with a headset apparatus, the user can press a button on
the headset apparatus to answer and release (disconnect) calls.
Auto answer
If this feature is programmed on the template, pressing this button
causes the speakerphone to go off hook automatically when an
incoming call is received.
Note
Call park
You configure this feature for some phones models by using
the Phone Button Template window, and you configure this
feature for some phone models by using the Phone
Configuration window.
In conjunction with a call park number or range, when the user presses
this button, call park places the call at a directory number for later
retrieval. You must have a call park number or range that is configured
in the system for this button to work, and you should provide that
number or range to your users, so they can dial in to the number(s) to
retrieve calls.

Softkey Templates
Softkey Templates
Use softkey templates to manage softkeys that are associated with applications such as Cisco Unified
CallManager Assistant or call-processing features such as Cisco Call Back on the Cisco Unified IP
Phones. The administrator uses the Softkey Template Configuration windows in Cisco Unified
CallManager Administration to create and update softkey templates.
Cisco Unified CallManager supports two types of softkey templates: standard and nonstandard. Standard
softkey templates in the Cisco Unified CallManager database contain the recommended selection and
positioning of the softkeys for an application. Cisco Unified CallManager provides the following
standard softkey templates:
Note
•
Standard User
•
Standard Feature
•
Standard Assistant
•
Standard Shared Mode Manager
•
Standard Manager
The default process does not assign a softkey template to the Cisco Unified IP Phone. The administrator
must assign standard or nonstandard softkey templates to the Cisco Unified IP Phone by assigning the
templates individually to each phone or by assigning the device pool to each phone.
The administrator creates a nonstandard softkey template by using the Softkey Template Configuration
windows in Cisco Unified CallManager Administration. To create a nonstandard softkey template, the
administrator copies a standard softkey template and makes changes. The administrator can add and
remove applications that are associated with any nonstandard softkey template. Additionally, the
administrator can configure softkey sets for each call state for a nonstandard softkey template.
The Softkey Template Configuration window lists the standard and nonstandard softkey templates and
uses different icons to differentiate between standard and nonstandard templates.
The administrator assigns softkey templates in the following Cisco Unified CallManager Administration
configuration windows:
•
Device Pool Configuration
•
Phone Configuration (SIP and SCCP)
•
User Device Profile Configuration
•
Default Device Profile Configuration
Add Application
The administrator can add a standard softkey template that is associated with a Cisco application to a
nonstandard softkey template. When the administrator clicks the Add Application button from the
Softkey Template Configuration window, a separate window displays and allows the administrator to
choose the standard softkey template that is to be added to the end of the nonstandard softkey template.
Duplicate softkeys get deleted from the end of the set that is moving to the front of the set.

Softkey Templates
Tip
To refresh the softkeys for an application in the nonstandard softkey template, choose the standard
softkey template that is already associated with the nonstandard softkey template. For example, if the
administrator originally copied the Standard User template and deleted some buttons, choose the
Standard User softkey template by clicking on the Add Application button. This adds the buttons that
are included in the chosen softkey template.
The number of softkeys in any given call state cannot exceed 16. A message displays, and the add
application procedure stops when the maximum number of softkeys is reached. The administrator must
manually remove some softkeys from the call state before trying to add another application to the
template.
The Delete Application button allows the administrator to delete application softkey templates that are
associated with a nonstandard softkey template. Only the softkeys that are associated with the
application get deleted. When softkeys are commonly shared between applications, they remain in the
softkey template until the last application that shares the softkeys is removed from the softkey template.
Configure Softkey Layout
The administrator can configure softkey sets for each call state for a nonstandard softkey template. When
the administrator chooses Configure Softkey Layout from the Related Links drop-down list box on the
Softkey Template Configuration window and clicks Go, Softkey Layout Configuration displays.
The Softkey Layout Configuration pane contains the following fields:
•
Call states—This drop-down list box displays the different call states of a Cisco Unified IP Phone.
You cannot add, update, or delete call states. The call state that gets chosen from the drop-down list
box indicates the softkeys that are available for that call state. Table 43-4 lists the call states.

Softkey Template Operation
Softkey Template Operation
For applications such as Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant to support softkeys, ensure softkeys and
softkey sets are configured in the database for each device that uses the application.
You can mix application and call-processing softkeys in any softkey template. A static softkey template
associates with a device in the database. When a device registers with Cisco Unified CallManager, the
static softkey template gets read from the database into call processing and then gets passed to the device
to be used throughout the session (until the device is no longer registered or is reset). When a device
resets, it may get a different softkey template or softkey layout because of updates that the administrator
makes.
Softkeys support a field called application ID. An application, such as Cisco Unified CallManager
Assistant, activates/deactivates application softkeys by sending a request to the device through the Cisco
CTIManager and call processing with a specific application ID.
When a user logs in to the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service and chooses an assistant for the service,
the application sends a request to the device, through Cisco CTIManager and call processing, to activate
all its softkeys with its application ID.
At any time, several softkey sets may display on a Cisco Unified IP Phone (one set of softkeys for each
call).
The softkey template that is associated with a device (such as a Cisco Unified IP Phone) in the database
designates the one that is used when the device registers with call processing. Perform the association
of softkey templates and devices by using Softkey Template configuration in Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration. See “Softkey Template Configuration” in the Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration Guide.
Common Phone Profiles
Cisco Unified CallManager uses common phone profiles to define phone attributes that are associated
with Cisco Unified IP Phones. Having these attributes in a profile instead of adding them individually to
every phone decreases the amount of time that administrators spend configuring phones and allows the
administrator to change the values for a group of phones. Common phone profiles specify the following
attributes:
•
Profile name
•
Profile description
•
Local phone unlock password
•
End user access to phone background image setting
The common phone profile remains a required field when phones are configured; therefore, you must
create the common phone profile before you create a phone. Cisco Unified CallManager provides a
Standard Common Phone Profile that you can copy and modify to create a new common phone profile.
You cannot, however, modify nor delete the Standard Common Phone Profile.
For information on configuring common phone profiles, see “Common Phone Profile Configuration” in
the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide.

Methods for Adding Phones
Methods for Adding Phones
You can automatically add phones that support either the SCCP or SIP protocols to the Cisco Unified
CallManager database by using autoregistration, manually by using the phone configuration windows,
or in groups with the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT).
By enabling autoregistration before you begin installing phones, you can automatically add a Cisco
Unified IP Phone to the Cisco Unified CallManager database when you connect the phone to your IP
telephony network. For information on enabling autoregistration, refer to “Enabling Autoregistration”
in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide. During autoregistration, Cisco Unified
CallManager assigns the next available sequential directory number to the phone. In many cases, you
may not want to use autoregistration; for example, if you want to assign a specific directory number to
a phone or if you plan to implement authentication or encryption, as described in the Cisco Unified
CallManager Security Guide.
Tip
Cisco Unified CallManager automatically disables autoregistration if you configure the clusterwide
security mode for authentication and encryption through the Cisco CTL client.
If you do not use autoregistration, you must manually add phones to the Cisco Unified CallManager
database or use the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT). BAT enables system administrators to perform
batch add, modify, and delete operations on large numbers of Cisco Unified IP Phones. Refer to the Cisco
Unified CallManager Bulk Administration Guide for detailed instructions on using BAT.
User/Phone Add
You can use the End User, Phone, DN, and LA Configuration window to add a new phone at the same
time that you add a new end user. You can associate a directory number (DN) and line appearance (LA)
for the new end user by using the same window. To access the End User, Phone, DN, and LA
Configuration window, choose the User Management > User/Phone Add menu option. See
“User/Phone Add Configuration” in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide for
configuration details.
Note
The End User, Phone, DN, and LA Configuration window only allows addition of a new end user and a
new phone. The window does not allow entry of existing end users or existing phones.
Phone Features
Cisco Unified CallManager enables you to configure the following phone features on Cisco Unified IP
Phones: barge, privacy release, call back, call park, call pickup, immediate divert, malicious call
identification, quality report tool, service URL, and speed dial and abbreviated dial.
For information about features that are related to directory numbers, see the “Directory Number
Features” section on page 18-5. The following features get configured for directory numbers: call
forward and call waiting.
Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide
OL-14153-01
43-21
Chapter 43
Cisco Unified IP Phones
Phone Features
Barge and Privacy
The Barge and Privacy features work together. Both features work with shared lines only.
Barge adds a user to a call that is in progress. Pressing the Barge or cBarge softkey automatically adds
the user (initiator) to the shared-line call (target), and the users currently on the call receive a tone. Barge
supports built-in conference and shared conference bridges.
Privacy allows a user to allow or disallow other users of shared-line devices to view the device call
information or to allow another user to barge in to its active calls.
For more information about Barge and Privacy, refer to Barge and Privacy in the Cisco Unified
CallManager Features and Services Guide.
Call Forward
Call forward allows a user to configure a Cisco Unified IP Phone, so all calls that are destined for it ring
another phone. The following types of call forward exist:
•
Call forward all—Forwards all calls.
•
Call forward busy—Forwards calls only when the line is in use and busy trigger setting is reached.
•
Call forward no answer—Forwards calls when the phone is not answered after the configured no
answer ring duration or if the destination is unregistered.
•
Call forward no coverage—Forward calls when ringing either exhausts or times out and the
associated hunt-pilot for coverage specifies Use Personal Preferences for its final forwarding.
You can configure each call forward type for internal and external calls and can forward calls to
voice-messaging system or a dialed destination number by configuring the calling search space.
Cisco Unified CallManager includes a secondary Calling Search Space (CSS) configuration field for
Call Forward All (CFA). The secondary CSS for CFA combines with the existing CSS for CFA to allow
support of the alternate CSS system configuration. When CFA is activated, only the primary and
secondary CSS for CFA gets used to validate the CFA destination and redirect the call to the CFA
destination. If these fields are empty, the null CSS gets used. Only the CSS fields that are configured in
the primary CSS for CFA and secondary CSS for CFA fields get used. If CFA is activated from the phone,
the CFA destination gets validated by using the CSS for CFA and the secondary CSS for CFA, and the
CFA destination gets written to the database. When a CFA is activated, the CFA destination always gets
validated against the CSS for CFA and the secondary CSS for CFA.
The administrator configures call forward information display options to the original dialed number or
the redirected dialed number, or both. The administrator enables or disables the calling line ID (CLID)
and calling name ID (CNID). The display option gets configured for each line appearance.
The call forward busy trigger gets configured for each line appearance in a cluster and cannot exceed the
maximum number of calls that are configured for a line appearance. The call forward busy trigger
determines how many active calls exist on a line before the call forward busy setting gets activated (for
example, 10 calls).
The call forward no answer ring duration gets configured for each line appearance in a cluster, and the
default specifies 12 seconds. The call forward no answer ring duration determines how long a phone
rings before the call forward no answer setting gets activated.
Tip
Keep the busy trigger slightly lower than the maximum number of calls, so users can make outgoing calls
and perform transfers.
Configure call forward in the Directory Number Configuration window in Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration.
Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide
43-22
OL-14153-01
Chapter 43
Cisco Unified IP Phones
Phone Features
Cisco Unified CallManager provides a service parameter (CFA Destination Override) that allows the
administrator to override Call Forward All (CFA) when the target of the CFA calls the initiator of the
CFA, so the CFA target can reach the initiator for important calls. In other words, when the user to whom
calls are being forwarded (the target) calls the user whose calls are being forwarded (the initiator), the
phone of the initiator rings instead of the call being forwarded back to the target. The override works
whether the CFA target phone number is internal or external.
When the CFA Destination Override service parameter is set to False (the default value), no override
occurs. Ensure the service parameter is set to True for CFA override to work. See Service Parameters
Configuration in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide for information about
configuring service parameters.
Note
CFA override only takes place if the CFA destination matches the calling party and the CFA Destination
Override service parameter is set to True. If the service parameter is set to True and the calling party
does not match the CFA destination, CFA override does not take place, and the CFA remains in effect.
Call Park
Call park allows a user to place a call on hold, so anyone who is configured to use call park on the Cisco
Unified CallManager system can retrieve it.
For example, if a user is on an active call at extension 1000, the user can park the call to a call park
extension such as 1234, and another user can dial 1234 to retrieve the call.
To use call park, you must add the call park extension (in this case, 1234) in Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration when you are configuring phone features. For more information about call park, refer to
Call Park in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide.
Call Pickup
Cisco Unified CallManager provides the following types of call pickup:
•
Call pickup—Allows you to answer a ringing phone in your designated call pickup group.
•
Group call pickup—Allows you to answer incoming calls in another pickup group.
•
Other group call pickup—Allows you to answer incoming calls in a pickup group that is associated
with your own group.
All three types of call pickup can operate automatically or manually. If the service parameter,
AutoCallPickupEnabled, is enabled, the Cisco Unified CallManager automatically connects you to the
incoming call after you press one of the following softkeys on the phone:
•
Pickup—For call pickup (calls in your own pickup group)
•
GPickup—For group call pickup (calls in another pickup group)
•
OPickup—For other group call pickup (calls in a pickup group that is associated with your own pickup
group)
After the call pickup feature is automated, you need to use only one keystroke for a call connection
except for group call pickup. You dial the DN of that other pickup group after you press the GPickup
softkey on the phone.
Note
CTI applications support monitoring of the party whose call is picked up. CTI applications do not
support monitoring of the pickup requester or the destination of the call that is picked up. Hence, Cisco
Unified CallManager Assistant does not support auto call pickup (one-touch call pickup).

Chapter 43
Cisco Unified IP Phones
Phone Features
You configure the call pickup feature when you are configuring phone features in Cisco Unified
CallManager.
When you are adding a line, you can indicate the call pickup group. The call pickup group indicates a
number that can be dialed to answer calls to this directory number (in the specified partition). For more
information about call pickup, refer to Call Pickup Group in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features
and Services Guide.
Call Select
The Select softkey allows a user to select a call for feature activation or to lock the call from other
devices that share the same line appearance. Pressing the Select softkey on a selected call deselects the
call.
When the call gets selected by a device, it gets put in the Remote-In-Use state on all other devices that
share the line appearance. No one can select a call that is in the Remote-In-Use state. In other words,
selecting a call instance will lock it from other devices that share the same line appearance.
A special display symbol identifies selected calls.
Conference List
The conference list feature provides a list of participant directory numbers that are in an ad hoc
conference. The name of the participant displays if it is configured in Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration.
Any participant can invoke the conference list feature on the phone and can view the participants. The
conference controller can invoke the conference list feature and can view and remove any participant in
the conference by using the Remove softkey.
Direct Transfer
Using the DirTrfr and Select softkeys, a user can transfer any two established calls to remove the calls
from the IP phone. For more information about Direct Transfer, see the “Making and Receiving Multiple
Calls Per Directory Number” section on page 18-7.
Onhook Call Transfer
The Call Transfer feature supports the onhook (hangup) action as a possible last step to complete a call
transfer. You must set the Transfer On-hook Enabled service parameter, which enables onhook call
transfer, to True for onhook call transfer to succeed. If the service parameter is set to False, the onhook
action ends the secondary call to the third party.
In the existing implementation, if user B has an active call on a particular line (from user A) and user B
has not reached the maximum number of calls on this line, the Cisco Unified IP Phone provides a
Transfer softkey to user B. If user B presses the Transfer softkey (or Transfer button, if available) once,
user B receives dial tone and can make a secondary call: user B dials the number of a third-party (user
C). Cisco Unified CallManager provides a Transfer softkey to user B again. If user B presses the Transfer
softkey again (or Transfer button, if available), the transfer operation completes.
With the onhook call transfer implementation, user B can hang up after dialing the number of user C,
and the transfer completes. Both the existing and new implementations work in the case of a blind
transfer (user B disconnects before user C answers) and also in the case of a consult transfer (user B
waits for user C to answer and announces the call from user A).
The previous implementation remains unchanged: user B can press the Transfer softkey twice to
complete the transfer.

system. Managers and assistants, or anyone who shares lines, use this feature. When the call gets
diverted, the line becomes available to make or receive new calls.
If the Use Legacy iDivert service parameter is set to False, the invoker can select a party voice mailbox
to which to divert an incoming call. The invoker can choose between the original called party voice
mailbox or the voice mailbox of the invoker.
To access the Immediate Divert feature, use the iDivert softkey. Configure this softkey by using the
Softkey Template Configuration window of Cisco Unified CallManager Administration. The softkey
template gets assigned to phones that are in the Cisco Unified CallManager system.
For more information about Immediate Divert, refer to Immediate Divert in the Cisco Unified
CallManager Features and Services Guide.
Join
By using the Join softkey, a user can join up to 15 established calls (for a total of 16) to create a
conference. For more information about Join, see the “Making and Receiving Multiple Calls Per
Directory Number” section on page 18-7.
Malicious Call Identification (MCID)
The MCID feature provides a useful method for tracking troublesome or threatening calls. When a user
receives this type of call, the Cisco Unified CallManager system administrator can assign a new softkey
template that adds the Malicious Call softkey to the user phone. For POTS phones that are connected to
a SCCP gateway, users can use a hookflash and enter a feature code of *39 to invoke the MCID feature.
For more information about MCID, refer to the “Malicious Call Identification” chapter in the Cisco
Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide.
Quality Report Tool
The Quality Report Tool (QRT), a voice-quality and general problem-reporting tool for Cisco Unified
IP Phones, allows users to easily and accurately report audio and other general problems with their IP
phone. QRT gets loaded as part of the Cisco Unified CallManager installation, and the Cisco Extended
Functions (CEF) service supports it.
As system administrator, you enable QRT functionality by creating, configuring, and assigning a softkey
template to associate the QRT softkey on a user IP phone. You can choose from two different user modes,
depending upon the level of user interaction that you want with QRT. You then define how the feature
will work in your system by configuring system parameters and setting up Cisco Unified CallManager
Serviceability tools. You can create, customize, and view phone problem reports by using the QRT
Viewer application.
Support for the QRT feature extends to any model IP phone that includes the following capabilities:
Note
•
Support for softkey templates
•
Support for IP phone services
•
Controllable by CTI
•
Contains an internal HTTP server

Speed Dial and Abbreviated Dial
Cisco Unified CallManager supports the configuration of up to 99 speed-dial entries, which are accessed
through phone buttons and abbreviated dialing.
When the user configures up to 99 speed-dial entries, part of the speed-dial entries can get assigned to
the speed-dial buttons on the IP phone; the remaining speed-dial entries get used for abbreviated dialing.
When a user starts dialing digits, the AbbrDial softkey displays, and the user can access any speed-dial
entry by entering the appropriate index. For information about configuring speed dials, see “Configuring
Speed-Dial Buttons” in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide.
Phone Association
Users can control some devices, such as phones. Applications that are identified as users control other
devices, such as CTI ports. When users have control of a phone, they can control certain settings for that
phone, such as speed dial and call forwarding. For more information on associating phones with users,
refer to the “Associating Devices to an End User” section in the Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration Guide.
Phone Administration Tips
The following sections contain information that may help you configure phones in Cisco Unified
CallManager Administration.
Phone Search

Messages Button
By performing the following actions, you can configure a voice-messaging access number for the
messages button on Cisco Unified IP Phone models 7970, 7960, and 7940, so users can access the
voice-messaging system by simply pressing the messages button:
Note
1.
Configure the voice-mail pilot number by choosing Voice Mail > Voice Mail Pilot.
2.
Configure the voice-mail profile by choosing Voice Mail > Voice Mail Profile.
3.
Choose the appropriate profile from the Voice Mail Profile field on the Directory Number
Configuration window. By default, this field uses the default voice-mail profile that uses the default
voice-mail pilot number configuration.
Typically, you can edit the default voice-mail pilot and default voice-mail profiles to configure
voice-messaging service for your site.
For more information on configuring a voice-messaging service, refer to the “Voice Mail Connectivity
to Cisco Unified CallManager” chapter.
Note
For the Cisco IP Phone models 12 SP+ and 30 VIP, you can use phone button templates to configure a
button with the message-waiting feature for access to a voice-messaging service.
Directories Button
The Cisco Unified IP Phone models 7970, 7960, and 7940 can display a directory of employee names
and phone numbers. Although you access this directory from the directories button on the IP phone, you
must configure it before users can access it. To use the corporate directory, you must enter users into a
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory that is configured with Cisco Unified
CallManager.
The URL Directories enterprise parameter defines the URL that points to the global directory for display
on Cisco Unified IP Phone models 7970, 7960, and 7940. The XML device configuration file for the
phone stores this URL.
Tip
If you are using IP addresses rather than DNS for name resolution, make sure that the URL Directories
enterprise parameter value uses the IP address of the server for the hostname.
If the phone URL was not updated correctly after the URL Directories enterprise parameter was changed,
try stopping and restarting the Cisco TFTP service; then, reset the phone.

Phone Administration Tips
Cisco Unified CallManager User Options
Cisco Unified IP Phone users access Cisco Unified CallManager User Options through their web
browser, so they can configure a variety of features on their phone. Some of the configurable features
include user locale, user password, call forward, speed dial, and personal address book. By setting
enterprise parameters as either True or False, administrators can configure which features are made
available to users; for example, the administrator can set the Show Speed Dial Settings enterprise
parameter to False, and users cannot configure speed dials on their phones.
For more information on how to access and use Cisco Unified CallManager User Options, refer to the
phone guide for the specific Cisco Unified IP Phone.
Maximum Phone Fallback Queue Depth Service Parameter
The Cisco CallManager service uses the Maximum Phone Fallback Queue Depth service parameter to
control the number of phones to queue on the higher priority Cisco Unified CallManager when that Cisco
Unified CallManager is available for registration. The default specifies 10 phones per second. If a
primary Cisco Unified CallManager fails, the phones fail over to the secondary Cisco Unified
CallManager. The failover process happens as fast as possible by using the priority queues to regulate
the number of devices that are currently registering.
When the primary Cisco Unified CallManager recovers, the phones get returned to that Cisco Unified
CallManager; however, you do not need to remove a phone from a working Cisco Unified CallManager,
in this case the secondary system, as fast as possible because the phone remains on a working system.
The queue depth gets monitored (using the Maximum Phone Fallback Queue Depth service parameter
setting) to determine whether the phone that is requesting registration gets registered now or later. If the
queue depth is greater than 10 (default), the phone stays where it is and tries later to register to the
primary Cisco Unified CallManager.
In the Service Parameters Configuration window, you can modify the Maximum Phone Fallback Queue
Depth service parameter. If the performance value is set too high (the maximum setting specifies 500),
phone registrations could slow the Cisco Unified CallManager real-time response. If the value is set too
low (the minimum setting specifies 1), the total time for a large group of phones to return to the primary
Cisco Unified CallManager will be long.
Dependency Records
If you need to find what directory numbers a specific phone is using or to what phones a directory
number is assigned, choose Dependency Records from the Related Links drop-down list box on the
Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Phone Configuration or Directory Number Configuration
window. The Dependency Records Summary window displays information about directory numbers that
are using the phone. To find more information about the directory number, click the directory number,
and the Dependency Records Details window displays. If the dependency records are not enabled for the
system, the dependency records summary window displays a message.
For more information about Dependency Records, refer to the “Accessing Dependency Records” section
and the “Removing a Directory Number from a Phone” section in the Cisco Unified CallManager
Administration Guide.

Cisco Unified IP Phones
Phone Failover and Fallback
Phone Failover and Fallback
This section describes how phones fail over and fall back if the Cisco Unified CallManager to which they
are registered becomes unreachable. This section also covers conditions that can affect calls that are
associated with a phone, such as reset or restart.
Cisco Unified CallManager Fails or Becomes Unreachable
The active Cisco Unified CallManager designation applies to the Cisco Unified CallManager from which
the phone receives call-processing services. The active Cisco Unified CallManager usually serves as the
primary Cisco Unified CallManager for that phone (unless the primary machine is not available).
If the active Cisco Unified CallManager fails or becomes unreachable, the phone attempts to register
with the next available Cisco Unified CallManager in the Cisco Unified CallManager Group that is
specified for the device pool to which the phone belongs.
The phone device reregisters with the primary Cisco Unified CallManager as soon as it becomes
available after a failure. See the “Maximum Phone Fallback Queue Depth Service Parameter” section on
page 43-30 for information about phone registration during failover.
Note
Phones do not fail over or fall back while a call is in progress.
Phone is Reset
If a call is in progress, the phone does not reset until the call finishes.
