This document covers the Configuration procedures to enable Video and Camera support on Cisco Unified SIP-IP Phone 9971 using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express 8.6 .

1. Prerequisites

  • Cisco Unified CME 8.6 or a later version

2. Components Used

  • Cisco Unified CME 8.6
  • Cisco IP Phone 9971

This Procedure is applicable to Cisco IP Phones 9951 and 9971.

Configuration

  • Cisco Unified IP Phone 9971 supports only the SIP firmware files.
  • Download the SIP firmware file for IP Phone 9971 from Cisco Software download site with your Cisco login. Refer the screenshot for Product selection.

  • SIP IP Phone is supported only on specified platforms. Refer the section "Supported Platforms and Memory Specifications: SIP IP Phones*" in the url:

Cisco Unified CME 8.6 Supported Firmware, Platforms, Memory, and Voice Products

To enable video and camera support on Cisco Unified IP Phone 9971, follow these steps:

Step 1: Voice register global configuration

Router# configure terminal

Router(config)#voice register global

Router(config-register-global)#camera

Router(config-register-global)#video

Note Make sure you configure video command without configuring the camera command so that Cisco Unified IP phones 9951 and 9971 can switch from phose based video camera to CUVA. If you configure both video and camera commands together, you may need to manually remove the USB camera from the Cisco Unified IP phones 9951 and 9971.

Step 2: Create Profile

Router(config-register-global)# create profile

Generates provisioning files required for SIP phones and writes the file to the location specified with the tftp-path command.

Router(config-register-global)#exit

Step3: Voice register pool configuration

Router(config)#voice register pool 5

Router(config-register-pool)#id mac 0009.A3D4.1234

Explicitly identifies a locally available individual SIP phone to support a degree of authentication.

Router(config-register-pool)#camera

Router(config-register-pool)#video

Enables camera, video command under voice register pool configuration mode.

Router(config-register-pool)#exit

Step4: Voice register template configuration

Router(config)voice register template 10

Enters voice register template configuration mode to define a template of common parameters for SIP phones in Cisco Unified CME.

• Range: 1 to 5.

Router(config-register-template)#camera

Router(config-register-template)#video

Configures camera,video command under voice register template configuration mode.

Router(config-register-template)# end

Step5: Apply configuration

Apply-config is similar to resetting or restarting the phones and allowing the phones to update phone configuration files. Phones only reboot if needed.To apply video configuration to Cisco Unified IP phones 8961, 9951 and 9971, follow these steps:

Router# configure terminal

Router(config)#voice register pool 5

Router(config-register-pool)#apply-config

Sample CME 8.6 Configuration

The following example shows camera and video commands configured in voice register global:

Router#show run

!

!

voice service voip

allow-connections sip to sip

fax protocol t38 version 0 ls-redundancy 0 hs-redundancy 0 fallback none

!

!

voice register global

mode cme

bandwidth video tias-modifier 244 negotiate end-to-end

max-pool 10

camera

video

!

voice register template 10

!

The following example shows video and camera commands configured under voice register pool 5, you can also configure both camera and video commands under voice register template:

Router#show run

!

!

voice service voip

allow-connections sip to sip

fax protocol t38 version 0 ls-redundancy 0 hs-redundancy 0 fallback none

!
!
voice register global

mode cme

bandwidth video tias-modifier 244 negotiate end-to-end

max-pool 10

!

voice register pool 1

id mac 1111.1111.1111

!

voice register pool 4

!

voice register pool 5

logout-profile 58

id mac 0009.A3D4.1234
