Cisco IP Phone 7861

Hello,

I have bought a pair of Cisco IP Phone 7861 for my small business (at good price) but I just realized they work only with Cisco Unified Communication Manager..is that right?

Can I use it only inserting my provider data in it and get calls?

Awaiting your kind reply

Thanks in Advance

Nope.  The phones will work with call controllers that support SIP.  Google the phrase "Cisco phones Asterisk" and see what you come up with. 

One can get an Asterisk "server" by investing in <US$80.  The Asterisk software can be loaded into a humble Raspberry Pi.

Hello Leo,

Hello Leo,

thanks for the reply. I already have a simple "server". It is basically a virtual pbx called VOHIPPO and I use two standard phones linked to the CISCO ATA 122. Everything works and is enought for what I do with my small business. The reason why I both the 2 Cisco 7861 is that the price was really good and I wanted a better communication and also wanted to use jabra pro 9470.

So what I have done is have inserted provided data into the virtual pbx and then the user and psw given fm the virtual pbx into the CISCO ATA 122. 

Everything works but I want to improve quality of audio.

Therefore my question is, can I insert user and psw given by my vohippo virtual pbx into the cisco phones?

Regards

So your Cisco phone can talk to your voice provider?  Depends on your voice provider.  Some voice provider will accept multiple login connections per account but some don't.

Hello,

Hello,

My qyestion is: My voice provider gives me a SIP server with a USERNAME and PSW.

Can I insert such data into my CISCO 7861 IP PHONE?

Or I can only use this phone with Cisco Unified Communication Manager for which you need a monthly Subscription? and I don't need since it's a very small and simple business with 2 phones...

Thanks in advance for your kind reply,

Of course you can.

Like I said in my first post, Google search "Cisco phones Asterisk". 

(Because the phones are going to be used for business purposes, I will decline to provide instructions on how to get this done.)
