Using an IPAQ as a phone

Unanswered Question

I swear that a few years ago we set up an Ipaq on CallManager and was able to use it as a wireless IP phone. We had CCM 3.1, and I don't remember needing any special phone emulation software. Is anybody familiar with this setup? We now have CCM 4.01a(sr2)and I cannot remember how this was done. I have not been able to find any instructions, either. Thanks...

as the CCM is handling signaling for VoIP, the first question is, which signalling protocolls do you use?

Based on the answer I would look for an IP soft phone application and then ... RTFM ;-)

One Softphone which I have heard should work is "IP Blue VTGO!", which I was told even was bundled on the companion CD of the IPAQ.

Maybe you can check this and work from there.

A little Search revealed this on IP Blue and Call Manager interoperation: IP_Blue_Cisco_Innovation_Day_May_2004.pdf

So this is what I would opt for. Seems to be a working solution without too much hassle involved.

Hope this helps! Please rate all posts.

Thanks for the direction. I hadn't heard RTFM in a while. ;-)
