Hi all, I'm looking for the same configuration steps, but in this case I have a CUCM70. Does anyone has implemented this solution or know if this is compatible, please let us know.

Best regards

Hi David, thanks a lot for the link. Just this question please. To make calls go trhough Skype SIP, I need SIP (third-party) IP Phones registered in my CUCM7 right? What about If I want to make calls using my SCCP IP Phones, is it possible with an external gateway (like the link in the above post)??

Thanks a lot David again

All the best

To be honest, I haven't really looked too much at the actual Skype for SIP product.  But, in the cursory view I gave it - I realize it is actually a SIP trunking solution with essentially Skype as a service provider.  Now, there may be a bit more in detail to it than that but at it's base level - it's a SIP trunk.  At a high-level, making calls thru a SIP trunk doesn't require any special type of phone.  So, you don't need to configure a 3rd-party SIP client in CUCM just to make calls across a SIP trunk.  The link I sent you is for how to get a SIP client device to work with CUCM (and a CME example posted earlier in the thread).  So, if you wanted to say use your iPhone with a SIP client you installed on it as a phone registered to the can do that and all you need to know is the info in the link I provided.  However, it sounds as if you are more interested in using SIP to answer your questions regarding making calls using SCCP IP phones over a SIP trunk, you can definitely do this.  Each implementation varies but in most Cisco CUCM deployments you're going to have a voice gateway/CUBE (Unified Border Element) solution and then an appropriate number of SIP trunks based on your carrier, their capabilities, capacity, contractual agreement, and so forth.

Hi David, thanks a lot for your comments, I'm trying to configure the CUCM7 with the SKype for SIP with no result. I search in Cisco a configuration guide but I think that is not supported yet.

If someone knows how to make it work, please share the experience.

Thanks again David

Best regards
