CP 8831 without CUCM??

Hi, I'm relatively new to IP telephony, and a just bought a Cisco 8831 Ip Conference phone to complete our actual SPA 504g system of 8 units.

I don't use CUCM, so i was planning to configure 8831 as a standalone unit, with it's own registering configuration, as i did with our other phones. But i realize i have no access to any configuration page, and everything i read on the web points me to the Call Manager software. Do i really need to use it? Is there any way to configure the phone as a standalone unit? I don't want to buy a software just to configure one phone...

Your explanations and advices would really help!

 

Thank you.

Olivier

Thank you Anas for your

Thank you Anas for your answer. We are in a Macintosh environment, and we don't use any local server since all our shared files are on Dropbox and GoogleDrive. So, in this case, i suppose i have no option than trying to sell my 8831 and try to find an other standalone model?

Is there any way to use Cm Express locally on a pc and use it to "push" configuration to the phone without having to set a permanent server?

 

Again, thank you so much for your help.

Hi Oliver, for CM express you

Hi Oliver,

 

for CM express you need a voice gateway to configure that. for CUCM you need a virtual machine in VMware over cisco UCS server.

are you looking for stand alone conference audio or video ?
