I am using CISCO 7911G and 7941G versus an Asterisk Server using SIP firmware. So, I am using phones with an standar SIP PBX...
I want to change the menus of the phone to the spanish language, but I have not CallManager for this operation. Instead, I am using a normal TFTP server to provision phones...
My question is: How do I change the language for the phones ? I assume I should look for the corresponding spanish language files and point them at the TFTP server, but I have no idea of where to look for that language files... Could any one help me ?
At the present time, SIP firmware for cisco phones does not support localization.
In reality, at boot time the phone actually looks via tftp for java archive files containing the language strings, but even if given a localization file for SCCP, does not change language. By comparison, most dictionaries strings for SIP and SCCP should be the same, but the effect is one above described.
If you want to use cisco phones in fully satisfying manner, convert to SCCP and use a cisco router a feature called CCME to control them. You can use as small as a 1751-V for that. Form experience, people using asterisk before are much happier with CCME now.
Problem is cost... On that case, I would have to :
a).- Use an expensive cisco router
b).- Pay for licences on each phone
On the accounts I am working on, I can not afford the prices of routers with CCME (Cisco Call Manager Express) and/or phone licences.
My plan is using Asterisk with cisco phones for business under 30 seats (mixing Asterisk and Cisco). Only on bigger accounts would use a pure cisco enviroment. Most of my customer are under 30 seats, and there is no way to go with a pure cisco installation there.
Also, I would love to use SCCP, but does not work well on Asterisk, so I would prefer to use a more standar protocol SIP, with an standar SIP PBX.
Thks for your help, I was not aware there WAS NOT localization for SIP firmwares. I am sure that CISCO should be aware that should invest more on SIP, since open installations with open and mixed enviroments would be more common and are increasing..... BTW.. Do yoo known if Cisco Plans to improve SIP images for localization ? Is that on the roadmap ?
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
