7906G and 7960G UCM Support

Unanswered Question
Mar 20th, 2008


I have a customer running UCM v4.1(3)Sr4d

He has acquired some new 7906G and 7960G phones and needs support for these devices in CallManager.

However, Cisco's website documentation is rather confusing, as the devices appear to be supported in some parts of the document and not in others.

Could somebody tell me which devpack -or even UCM SR - I need?

Your help would be appreciated.


I have this problem too.

Thank you for your input. I have provided the customer with the latest devpack.

I will also take the oportunity to ask you another question regarding another update: I have another customer running CCM v4.1(3)es117. They have purchased a new 7937 conference phone and they need support for it. Is there any way to add support for just this device without installing a devpack?

no, the DevPack contains the code and the entries that are added into the CUCM DB in order to provide support for the new models

Even if you don't want some ES and SRs update the DevPack without you noticing.

Thanks again for your prompt reply. Considering the SR the customer is running, would it be possible to install the latest devpack? Or would it be more desirable to go to a later SR for CallManager?

You can always install the latest DevPack disregarding the level you're at.

You can go thru the release notes from the ES or from the SR and it should tell you the DevPack that is going to be installed, in some cases like an ES there would not be a DevPack upgrade but usually the SRs contains DevPack updates but also usually not the latest one available.

Our recommendation is to always apply the latest SR in the systems but on my personal opinion if the system is working fine and there is no real need you can leave it that way. In some cases the patches are needed to support new features or to fix bugs but if a system works fine i usually do not patch it.
