To be able to provision SCCP phones you should :
- Then install a plugin for SCCP Phone:
At this point you should have a fully functional DHCP server that provides IP address to your phones. Depending on what type of CISCO phone you have, you need to install the plugin sccp-legacy, sccp-9.4 or both.
Please refer to the Provisioning page for more information on how to install CISCO firmwares.
Once your plugin is installed, you’ll be able to edit which firmwares and locales you need. If you are unsure, you can choose all without any problem.
Now if you connect your first SCCP phone, you should be able to see it in the device list.
- Listing the detected devices:
When connecting a second SCCP phone, the device will be automatically detected as well.
SCCP General Settings¶
- Review SCCP general settings:
The last step is to create a user with a SCCP line.
- Creating a user with a SCCP line:
Before saving the newly configured user, you need to select the Lines menu and add a SCCP line. Now, you can save your new user.
Congratulations ! Your SCCP phone is now ready to be called !
With SCCP phones, the only function keys that can be configured are:
- Key: Only the order is important, not the number
Customized; Any other type doesn’t work
- Destination: Any valid extension
- Label: Any label
- SCCP Phones support directmedia (direct RTP). In order for SCCP phones to use directmedia, one must enable the directmedia option in SCCP general settings:
|Autoanswer (custom dialplan)||Yes|
|Multi-instance per line||Yes|
|Message waiting indication||Yes|
|Music on hold||Yes|
|Context per line||Yes|
|Resync device configuration||Yes|
|Do not disturb (DND)||Yes|
|Connected line ID||Yes|
|Multi line||Not yet|
|NAT traversal||Not yet|
|Type of Service (TOS)||Manual|
|Device type||Supported||Firmware version||Timezone aware|
Models not listed in the table above won’t be able to connect to Asterisk at all. Models listed as “Testing” are not yet officially supported in XiVO: use them at your own risk.
The “Timezone aware” column indicates if the device supports the timezone tag in its configuration file, i.e. in the file that the device request to the provisioning server when it boots. If you have devices that don’t support the timezone tag and these devices are in a different timezone than the one of the XiVO, you can look at the issue #5161 for a potential solution.
