Difference Between 7971G and 7970G

Both look the same and both have the same large color display. What does the 7971G offer over the 7970G?

Ahh, I see. I thought there were two models of the 7941. The 7971G and the 7971-GE (gigabit). There is only one I assume and that is the 7871-GE?

yeps ... only 7970 and 7971 has this naming, all other phones dont have anything such. I know it can get a little confusing at times :-)

I see, but they are essentially the same phones, but the 7971 has gigabyte ethernet support?

Hi Peter,

Like Mahesh said, the only difference is that the 7971G-GE has a 10/100/1000 (Gig) port. Here is a good clip from the product documentation;

The 7971G-GE **Gigabit Ethernet** IP phone is "feature identical" to the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G. It also includes a backlit, high-resolution color touch-screen display (320 x 234, 12-bit display with 4096 colors) for easy access to communication information, timesaving applications, and features. It also helps customers and developers deliver more innovative and productivity-enhancing Extensible Markup Language (XML) applications to the display.
