The 7912 doesn't support a SIP phone load.


 


If it's actually registered to CCM or CME, then you can use your SIP trunk directly there.


 


Otherwise - sorry.  Need a 7940/60/70/41/42/71..etc


 


hth,

Actually there is SIP firmware for the 7912 (latest is 8.0.1), but is not released to the public by Cisco. You will also need the configuration utility to generate a .cfg file from a text file, in order to upgrade.  The configuration utility is also licensed software.

Yep - looks like your right on this.  Didn't check.


 


But, it is actually available on Cisco.com for download.  If you have the contract rights, you can take a look at this link:

(Not sure if that link will pull up for you, go to voice downloads and do a search for 7912->SIP software).  Thanks Paulo.

Hi, I said "not released to the public" to mean "need a paid support contract to download". Usually people buying or inheriting used cisco products do not have one.


Thanks for the nice rating and good luck!
