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
SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE
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.
• Move the equipment 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 6921, 6941, and 6961 provide voice communication over an Internet
Protocol (IP) network. The Cisco Unified IP Phone functions much like a digital business phone,
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 the phone is connected to your data network, it offers
enhanced IP telephony features, including access to network information and services, and
customizeable features and services.
A Cisco Unified IP Phone, like other network devices, must be configured and managed. These phones
encode G.711a, G.711µ, G.729, G.729a, G.729ab, and decode G.711a, G.711µ, G.729, G.729a, and
G.729ab.

What Features are Supported on the Cisco Unified
IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961?
Cisco Unified IP Phones function much like a digital business phone, allowing you to place and receive
phone calls. In addition to traditional telephony features, the Cisco Unified IP Phone includes features
that enable you to administer and monitor the phone as a network device.
This section includes the following topics:
•
Feature Overview, page 1-11

Configuring Telephony Features, page 1-12
•
Configuring Network Parameters Using the Cisco Unified IP Phone, page 1-12

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 and for tips on configuring them, see the “Telephony
Features Available for the Cisco Unified IP Phone” section on 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.”
Cisco Unified IP Phones can interact with other services and devices on your IP network to provide
enhanced functionality. For example, you can integrate Cisco Unified Communications Manager with
the corporate Lightweight Directory Access Protocol 3 (LDAP3) standard directory to enable users to
search for co-worker 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 the “Join and Direct Transfer Policy” section on
page 5-13 and the “Setting Up Services” section on page 5-18.
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.

settings on the phone depending on whether you enable or disable DHCP service.
If you used auto-registration, you need to update the specific configuration information for the phone
such as associating the phone with a user, changing the button table, or directory number.

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, theaccess gateways, and the
resources necessary for features such as call conferencing and route planning. Cisco Unified
Communications Manager also provides:
•
Firmware for phones
•
Configuration file via 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, go to the Cisco Unified IP Phone Configuration chapter in the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Administration Guide.
For an overview of security functionality for the Cisco Unified IP Phone, see the “Understanding
Security Features for Cisco Unified IP Phones” section on page 1-13.
Note
If the Cisco Unified IP Phone model that you want to configure does not appear in the Phone Type
drop-down list in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, go to the following URL and
install the latest support patch for your version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager:

Understanding How the Cisco Unified IP Phone Interacts with the VLAN
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 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 addresses
might not be available to assign the phone to the same subnet as other devices connected to the same
port.
•
Data traffic present on the VLAN supporting phones might 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.

Chapter 2
Preparing to Install the Cisco Unified IP Phone on Your Network
Providing Power to the Cisco Unified IP Phone
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 increases 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.
For more information, refer to the documentation included with a Cisco switch. You can also access
switch information at this URL:

Providing Power to the Cisco Unified IP Phone
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 can be powered with external power or with Power
over Ethernet (PoE). External power is provided through a separate power supply. PoE is provided by a
switch through the Ethernet cable attached to a phone.
Note
When you install a phone that is powered with external power, connect the power supply to the phone
and to a power outlet before you connect the Ethernet cable to the phone. When you remove a phone that
is powered with external power, disconnect the Ethernet cable from the phone before you disconnect the
power supply.

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 currently loaded on a phone, the phone contacts the TFTP server to
request the required load files.
A phone accesses a default configuration file named XmlDefault.cnf.xml from the TFTP server when
the following conditions exist:
•
You have enabled auto-registration in Cisco Unified Communications Manager
•
The phone has not been added to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database
•
The phone is registering for the first time
If auto registration is not enabled and the phone has not been added to the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager database, the phone registration request will be rejected and display a blank
screen.
If the phone has registered before, the phone will access the configuration file named
SEPmac_address.cnf.xml, where mac_address is the MAC address of the phone.
The filenames are derived from the MAC address and description fields in the Phone Configuration
window of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. The MAC address uniquely
identifies the phone.
For more information on phone configuration settings, go to the Cisco Unified IP Phone Configuration
chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.

Configuring VLAN
•
Network Setup Menu, page 4-4.
If the Cisco Unified IP Phone is connected to a
Cisco Catalyst switch, the switch next informs the
phone of the voice VLAN defined on the switch. The
phone needs to know its VLAN membership before it
can proceed with the Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) request for an IP address.
•
Resolving Startup Problems, page 9-1.
Obtaining an IP Address
•
Network Setup Menu, page 4-4.
If the Cisco Unified IP Phone is using DHCP to obtain
an IP address, the phone queries the DHCP server to
obtain one. If you are not using DHCP in your
network, you must assign static IP addresses to each
phone locally.
•
Resolving Startup Problems, page 9-1.
Accessing a TFTP Server
•
Network Setup Menu, page 4-4.
In addition to assigning an IP address, the DHCP
server directs the Cisco Unified IP Phone to a TFTP
Server. If the phone has a statically defined IP address,
you must configure the TFTP server locally on the
phone; the phone then contacts the TFTP server
directly.
•
Resolving Startup Problems, page 9-1.
Note
You can also assign an alternative TFTP server
to use instead of the one assigned by DHCP.

The configuration file defines how the Cisco
Unified IP Phone communicates with Cisco
Unified Communications Manager and provides a
phone with its load ID. After obtaining the file from
the TFTP server, the phone attempts to make a
connection to the highest priority Cisco
Unified Communications Manager on the list.
If the phone was manually added to the database,
Cisco Unified Communications Manager identifies
the phone. If the phone was not manually added to the
database and auto-registration is enabled in Cisco
Unified Communications Manager, the phone
attempts to auto-register itself in the Cisco
Unified Communications Manager database.
Adding Phones to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Database
Before installing the Cisco Unified IP phone, you must choose a method for adding phones to the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. Be aware that each phone type requires a fixed
number of device license units and the number of unit licenses that are available on the server may
impact phone registration. For more information on licensing go to the Licenses for Phones section in
the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide

Adding Phones with Auto-Registration
By enabling auto-registration before you begin installing phones, you can:
Note
•
Add phones without first gathering MAC addresses from the phones.
•
Automatically add a Cisco Unified IP Phone to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager
database when you physically connect the phone to your IP telephony network. During
auto-registration, Cisco Unified Communications Manager assigns the next available sequential
directory number to the phone.
•
Quickly enter phones into the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database and modify any
settings, such as the directory numbers, from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
•
Move auto-registered phones to new locations and assign them to different device pools without
affecting their directory numbers.
Cisco recommends you use auto-registration 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 the “Adding Phones with
BAT” section on page 2-10.
Auto-registration is disabled by default. In some cases, you might not want to use auto-registration; for
example, if you want to assign a specific directory number to the phone. For information about enabling
auto-registration, go to the “Enabling Auto-Registration” section in the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration Guide.
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 non-secure mode through the Cisco CTL
client, auto-registration is automatically enabled.

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 the “Adding
Phones with BAT” section on page 2-10.
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 non-secure mode through the Cisco CTL
client, auto-registration is automatically enabled.

Note
The Cisco Unified IP Phone displays the date and time from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
If the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server is located in a different time zone than the phones,
the phones will not display the correct local time.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration
The Cisco Unified IP Phone requires Cisco Unified Communications Manager to handle call
processing. Refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide or to
context-sensitive help in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager application to ensure that
Cisco Unified Communications Manager is set up properly to manage the phone and to properly route
and process calls.
If you plan to use auto-registration, verify that it is enabled and properly configured in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Administration before connecting any Cisco Unified IP Phone to the
network. For information about enabling and configuring auto-registration, refer to Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide. Also, see the “Adding Phones to the Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Database” section on page 2-7.
You must use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure and assign
telephony features to the Cisco Unified IP Phones. See the “Telephony Features Available for the Cisco
Unified IP Phone” section on page 5-1 for details.
In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, you can add users to the database, add users
to user groups, and associate users to specific phones. In this way, users gain access their Cisco Unified
CM User Option page to configure items such as call forwarding, speed dialing, and voice messaging
system options. See the “Adding Users to Cisco Unified Communications Manager” section on
page 5-19 for details.

Understanding the Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 Components
– labeled Computer
Each port supports 10/100 Mbps half- or full-duplex connections to external devices. You can use either
Category 3/5/5e cabling for 10-Mbps connections, but you must use Category 5/5e for 100 Mbps
connections.
Use the SW network port to connect the phone to the network. You must use a straight-through cable on
this port. The phone can also obtain inline power from a switch over this connection. See the “Adding
Phones to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Database” section on page 2-7 for details.
Use the PC access port to connect a network device, such as a computer, to the phone. You must use a
straight-through cable on this port.
Handset
The handset is designed especially for use with a Cisco Unified IP Phone. It includes a light strip that
indicates incoming calls and voice messages waiting.
To connect a handset to the Cisco Unified IP Phone, plug the cable into the handset and the Handset port
on the back of the phone.
Speakerphone
By default, the speakerphone is enabled on the Cisco Unified IP Phone.
You can disable the speakerphone by using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. To
do so, choose Device > Phone and locate the phone you want to modify. In the Phone Configuration
window for the phone, check the Disable Speakerphone check box.
Headset
Although Cisco Systems performs internal testing of third-party headsets for use with the Cisco Unified
IP Phones, Cisco Systems does not certify or support products from headset or handset vendors.
Cisco recommends the use of good quality external devices, for example, headsets that are screened
against unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals. Depending on the quality of
headsets and their proximity to other devices such as cell phones and two-way radios, some audio noise
or echo may still occur. An audible hum or buzz may be heard by either the remote party or by both 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 the “Using
External Devices” section on page 3-4 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 masse.

Understanding the Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 Components
Audio Quality
Beyond the physical, mechanical and technical performance, the audio portion of a headset must sound
good to the user and to the party on the far end. Sound quality is subjective and Cisco cannot guarantee
the performance of any headsets. However, a variety of headsets from leading headset manufacturers
have been reported to perform well with Cisco Unified IP Phones.
For information about wireless headsets that work in conjunction with the wireless headset remote
hookswitch control feature, go to the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/prod/voicesw/ucphone_headsets.html.
Connecting a Headset
To connect a wired headset to the Cisco Unified IP Phone, plug it into the Headset port on the back of
the phone. Press the Headset button on the phone to place and answer calls using the headset.
You can use the wired headset with all of the features on the Cisco Unified IP Phone, including the
Volume and Mute buttons. Use these buttons to adjust the ear piece volume and to mute the speech path
from the headset microphone.
Disabling a Headset
You can disable the headset by using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. If you
do so, you also will disable the speakerphone.
To disable the headset from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Device >
Phone and locate the phone that you want to modify. In the Phone Configuration window for the phone,
check the Disable Speakerphone and Headset check box.
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].

Configuring Features, Templates, Services, and
Users
After you install Cisco Unified IP Phones in your network, configure their network settings, and add
them to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you must use the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration application to configure telephony features, optionally modify phone
templates, set up services, and assign users.
This chapter provides an overview of these configuration and setup procedures. Cisco Unified
Communications Manager documentation provides detailed instructions for these procedures.
To list supported features for all phones or for a particular phone model on your Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, you can generate a Unified CM Phone Feature List report on Cisco Unified
Reporting.
For suggestions about how to provide users with information about features, and what information to
provide, see Appendix A, “Providing Information to Users Via a Website.”
For information about setting up phones in non-English environments, see Appendix B, “Supporting
International Users.”

Join and Direct Transfer Policy
Some JTAPI/TAPI applications are not compatible with the Join and Direct Transfer feature
implementation on the Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961. In order for these applications to
control and monitor these phones, you must configure the Join and Direct Transfer Policy to disable join
and direct transfer on the same line or possibly across lines. You can configure the Join and Direct
Transfer Policy for the following:
•
To configure the policy for all phones on the system, choose System > Enterprise Phone
Configurations from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.
•
To configure the policy to a group of phones, choose Device > Device Settings > Common Phone
Profile from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.
•
To configure the policy on an individual phone, configure the Join and Direct Transfer Policy in the
Phone Configuration for the specific phone.
Because this parameter can be configured in three different windows, the setting that takes precedence
is determined in the following order:
1.
Device Configuration window settings
2.
Common Phone Profile window settings
3.
Enterprise Phone Configuration window settings.
When you change the setting of the Join and Direct Transfer Policy Parameter, you must check the
“Override Common Settings” box for the setting to take effect. The default policy is to have Same line,
across line enabled for join and direct transfer.
To determine the proper setting for this parameter, refer to the documentation of the JTAPI/TAPI
application.
Configuring Corporate and Personal Directories
The Contact button on the Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 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 the “Configuring Corporate
Directories” section on page 5-13 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 the “Configuring Personal Directory” section on page 5-14 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 the users’ rights to access the system. Authorization identifies the telephony
resources that a user is permitted to use, such as a specific phone extension.
For more information, go to “Understanding Directory Numbers” in the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager System Guide.

After completing the LDAP directory configuration, users can use the Corporate Directory service on
their Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 to look up users in the corporate directory.
Configuring Personal Directory
Personal Directory consists of the following features:
•
Personal Address Book (PAB)
•
Speed 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 Speed Dials features from the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager User Options web pages
•
From the Cisco Unified IP Phone—Choose Contacts to search the corporate directory or the user’s
personal directory.
•
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 IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer users have access only to end-user data that
pertains to them, activate the Cisco UXL Web Service in Cisco Unified Serviceability.
To configure Personal Directory from a web browsers, users must access their User Options web pages.
You must provide users with a URL and login information.
To synchronize with Microsoft Outlook, users must install the TABSynch utility, provided by you. To
obtain the TABSynch software to distribute to users, choose Application > Plugins from Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Administration, then locate and click Cisco IP Phone Address Book

Configuring the Phone to Support Call Waiting
Configuring the Phone to Support Call Waiting
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961 support one call per line. Cisco Unified
Communications Manager sets the Maximum Number of Calls (MNC) per line, and Busy Trigger (BT)
per line attributes to 2 and 1 respectively and these fields can not be changed, As a result, the line appears
to be busy to a second incoming call when there is an active call present on the line. Cisco Unified
Communications Manager forwards the second incoming call based on the Call Forward Busy settings
for the line. The user, who is on a call will not be notified of an incoming call. Without further
configurations, the phone does not support call waiting. However, you can configure the phone to
support call waiting and receive the call by configuring an additional line on an unassigned
programmable button. When the user receives an incoming call while connected on a call, the phone
plays the call waiting tone (single beep), displays a caller ID notification and rolls the incoming call over
to the other line.
To configure call waiting on the Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921, 6941, and 6961:
1.
On an unassigned programmable button on the phone, configure an additional line by either
assigning the same directory number on a different partition or by assigned a different directory
number.
a. When you configure the second line by assigning the same directory number on more than one
line, the DN on the second line must be on a different partition. Each time that you assign the
same DN to another line, you must create a unique partition and assign the directory to that
partition.
b. When you configure the second line by assigning a different directory number, you must use a
previously unassigned and unlisted number.
The second line is an intermediary between the original line (your listed directory number) and your
call busy destination, such as your voice messaging system.
Note
2.
On the original line, configure the destination for the Call Forward Busy Internal and Call Forward
Busy External settings to your second line and the No Answer Ring Duration to a minimum of 10
seconds.
3.
On the second line, configure the standard Call Forward All settings that you would normally use
for the original line and set the No Answer Ring Duration to a minimum of 10 seconds.
You will need to assign a programmable button for each listed directory number.

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 DistinctiveRinglist.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 the “Cisco TFTP” chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager
System Guide and the “Software Upgrades” chapter in the 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 DistinctiveRinglist.xml file:
•
DistinctiveRingList File Format Requirements, page 6-2
•
PCM File Requirements for Custom Ring Types, page 6-3
•
Configuring a Custom Phone Ring, page 6-3
DistinctiveRingList File Format Requirements
The DistinctiveRingList.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 DistinctiveRinglist.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>
</CiscoIPPhoneRingList>

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
support 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” section on page 6-3.
Upload 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” chapter
in the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.
Step 2
Use an text editor to edit the DistinctiveRinglist.xml file. See the “DistinctiveRingList File Format
Requirements” section on page 6-2 for information about how to format this file and for a sample
DistinctiveRinglist.xml file.
Step 3
Save your modifications and close the DistinctiveRinglist.xml file.
Step 4
To cache the new DistinctiveRinglist.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).
Configuring the Idle Display
You can specify an idle display (text only; text-file size should not exceed 1M bytes) 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.
For detailed instructions about creating and displaying the idle display, refer to Creating Idle URL
Graphics on Cisco Unified IP Phone at this URL:

Automatically Disabling the Cisco Unified IP Phone Backlight
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_tech_note09186a00801c0764.shtml
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)
•
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 Backlight
To conserve power and ensure the longevity of the phone screen backlight, you can set the backlight to
turn off when it is not needed.
You can configure settings in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to turn off the
backlight at a designated time on some days and all day on other days. For example, you may choose to
turn off the backlight after business hours on weekdays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
You can take any of these actions to turn on the backlight any time it is off:
•
Press any button on the phone.
The phone takes the action designated by that button in addition to turning on the backlight.
•
Lift the handset.
When you turn the backlight on, it remains on until the phone has remained idle for a designated length
of time, then it turns off automatically.
Table 6-1 explains the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration fields that control when
the backlight 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.)

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 “Verifying the Phone Startup Process” section on page 3-12 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.
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 the “Performing a Factory Reset” section on page 9-11.
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.

In addition, problems with security may prevent the phone from starting up properly. See the “General
Troubleshooting Tips” section on page 9-8 for more information.
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 the “Status Messages Screen” section on page 7-2
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 Applications
button, then selecting Admin Settings > Network Configuration > IPv4 > TFTP Server 1.
If you have assigned a static IP address to the phone, you must manually enter a setting for the TFTP
Server 1 option. See the “Network Setup Menu” section on page 4-4.
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 the “Network Setup Menu” section on
page 4-4 for instructions.

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 Applications button, then select Administrator Settings >
Network Configuration > IPv4, and look at the following options:
•
Boot/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 the Troubleshooting
Switch Port and Interface Problems document, available at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/products/hw/switches/ps700/products_tech_note09186a00
8015bfd6.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 the “Network Setup Menu” section on
page 4-4 for instructions.

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 Applications
button, then selecting Administrator Settings > Network Configuration > IPv4 > DNS Server 1. 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.
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 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 and click Go.
Step 2
Choose Tools > Control Center - Feature 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 start or stop 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.
Note
A service must be activated before it can be started or stopped. To activate a service, choose Tools >
Service Activation.
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 the “Adding Phones
to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Database” section on page 2-7 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 and if there are sufficient number
of unit licenses. Review the information and procedures in the “Adding Phones to the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Database” section on page 2-7 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 the “Determining
the MAC Address for a Cisco Unified IP Phone” section on page 2-10.
If the phone is already in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, its configuration file
may be damaged. See the “Creating a New Configuration File” section on page 9-4 for assistance.
For more information on licensing go to the Licenses for Phones section in the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager System Guide
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
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 the Physical Connection, page 9-6
•
Identifying Intermittent Network Outages, page 9-6
•
Verifying DHCP Settings, page 9-6
•
Checking Static IP Address Settings, page 9-7
•
Verifying the Voice VLAN Configuration, page 9-7
•
Verifying that the Phones Have Not Been Intentionally Reset, page 9-7
•
Eliminating DNS or Other Connectivity Errors, page 9-7
Verifying the 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
The following suggestions can help you determine if the phone has been properly configured to use
DHCP:
1.
Verify that you have properly configured the phone to use DHCP. See the “Network Setup Menu”
section on page 4-4 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.

Checking Static IP Address Settings
If the phone has been assigned a static IP address, verify that you have entered the correct settings. See
the “Network Setup Menu” section on page 4-4 for more information.
Verifying the 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 the same switch as the 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 the
“Understanding How the Cisco Unified IP Phone Interacts with the VLAN” section on page 2-2 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 Applications button on the phone and choosing
Administrator Settings > 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.
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 Reset Settings menu to reset phone settings to their default values. See the “Resetting or
Restoring the Cisco Unified IP Phone” section on page 9-10 for details.
Step 2
Modify DHCP and IP settings:
Step 3
a.
Disable DHCP. See the “Network Setup Menu” section on page 4-4 for instructions.
b.
Assign static IP values to the phone. See the “Network Setup Menu” section on page 4-4 for
instructions. Use the same default router setting used for other functioning Cisco Unified IP Phones.
c.
Assign a TFTP server. See the “Network Setup Menu” section on page 4-4 for instructions. Use the
same TFTP server used for other functioning Cisco Unified IP Phones.
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.

referred to by its IP address and not by its DNS name.
Step 5
From Cisco Unified Communications Manager, choose Device > Phone > Find and verify that you have
assigned the correct MAC address to this Cisco Unified IP Phone. For information about determining a
MAC address, see the “Determining the MAC Address for a Cisco Unified IP Phone” section on
page 2-10.
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.

Explanation
Connecting a Cisco Unified IP Phone to
another Cisco Unified IP Phone/
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 digital cell
phones using the G.729 protocol.
In Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you can configure the network to
use the G.729 protocol (the default is G.711). When using G.729, calls between
an IP phone and a digital cellular phone will have poor voice quality. Use G.729
only when absolutely necessary.
A prolonged Layer 2 broadcast storm (lasting several minutes) on the voice

answer a call.
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 the
“Unlocking and Locking Options” section on page 4-3 for details.
Phone resetting.
The phone resets when it loses contact with the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager software. This lost connection can be due to any network connectivity
disruption, including cable breaks, switch outages, and switch reboots.
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 the “Call Statistics Screen” section on page 7-8 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 the “Call Statistics Screen” section on page 7-8 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 the “Call Statistics Screen” section on page 7-8 for information about
displaying these statistics.
Loopback condition.
A loopback condition can occur when the following conditions are met:
•
The SW Port Configuration option in the Network Configuration menu on
the phone is set to 10 Half
(10-BaseT / half duplex)
•
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 configured.

Monitoring the Voice Quality of Calls
Performing a Factory Reset
When you perform a factory reset of the Cisco Unified IP Phone, the following information is erased or
reset to its default value:
•
User configuration settings—Reset to default values
•
Network configuration settings—Reset to default values
•
Call histories—Erased
•
Locale information—Reset to default values
•
Phone application—Erased (phone recovers by using the image in the inactive partition of flash to
boot up).
Before you perform a factory reset, ensure that the following conditions are met:
•
The phone must be on a DHCP-enabled network.
•
A valid TFTP server must be set in DHCP option 150 or option 66 on the DHCP server.
To perform a factory reset of a phone, perform the following steps:
Procedure
Step 1
Unplug the power cable from the phone and then plug it back in.
The phone begins its power-up cycle.
Step 2
While the phone is powering up, and before the Speaker button flashes on and off,
press and hold #.
Continue to hold # until each line button flashes on and off in sequence in amber.
Step 3
Release # and press 123456789*0#.
You can press a key twice in a row, but if you press the keys out of sequence, the factory reset will not
take place.
After you press these keys, the line buttons on the phone flash red, and the phone goes through the
factory reset process.
Do not power down the phone until it completes the factory reset process, and the main screen appears.
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.

Note
Concealment ratio and concealment seconds are primary measurements based on frame loss. A Conceal
Ratio of zero indicates that the IP network is delivering frames and packets on time with no loss.
You can access voice quality metrics from the Cisco Unified IP Phone by using the Call Statistics screen
(see the “Call Statistics Screen” section on page 7-8) or remotely by using Streaming Statistics (see the

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” section on page D-4.
Adding a User Directly to Cisco Unified Communications Manager
If you are not using an LDAP directory, you can add a user directly to Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration by following these steps:
Procedure
Step 1
Choose User Management > End User, then click Add New. The End User Configuration window
appears.
Step 2
In the User Information pane of this window, enter the following:
– User ID—Enter the end user identification name. Cisco Unified Communications Manager does
not permit modifying the user ID after it is created. You may use the following special
characters: =, +, <, >, #, ;, \, , "", and blank spaces.
Example: johndoe
– Password and Confirm Password—Enter five or more alphanumeric or special characters for the
end user password. You may use the following special characters: =, +, <, >, #, ;, \, , "", and
blank spaces.
– Last Name—Enter the end user last name. You may use the following special characters: =, +,
<, >, #, ;, \, , "", and blank spaces.
Example: doe
– Telephone Number—Enter the primary directory number for the end user. End users can have
multiple lines on their phones.
