Re: AVVID integration with symbol netvision phones

Uttaran,

If you are using the standard firmware on the Symbol NetVision phone, you can just add each phone you are going to use as an H.323 Client in the CallManager, and you will have to specify the IP address as the device name for each phone.

Symbol is very soon going to release Skinny firmware for the NetVision phone which will allow the CallManager to treat it like a 12-SP+ phone so it is much easier to configure and it handles supplementary services much better than with H.323 mode, so this will be the preferred method.

You would need to contact Symbol to get that firmware, as it is not provided by Cisco.

Has anyone gotten the Symbol phones to work with the Aironet 350 access points. If so, how many phones.

Re: AVVID integration with symbol netvision phones

I had lots of problems with the ybol phone and was never able to make it work. However, I saw a Skinny-based wireless IP phone at Networkers that uses Cisco Aironet 340/50 APs called the Netlink IP Phone. You can look it up at www.spectralink.com. The cool thing I see about it is becuase it is a skinny-based phone, you can configure all your regular functions, like conference, etc. You add it just like any other IP phone!

Just found out that the spectralink phone configures as a 12sp+ as well. I've been waiting and waiting for something like this to come out. I've called them several times before but everything they required special gateways and extra equipment. I'm excited. Woo Hoo

May you tell me how?

Re: AVVID integration with symbol netvision phones

We had the Spectralink rep in to talk to us and demo the Netlink IP phones. The concept is great, wireless IP Phone that integrates with CCM. We found two issues with the phones. 1) the battery life is approximately 2 hours, 2) besides the phones, CCM, and an access point you need, the SVP Server, which is a dedicated appliance that performs QoS for the wireless phones. The SVP server, is $1500 and can only handle 30 simultaneous active calls. The Netlink IP Phones, with a battery, and charger, runs around $800 each. So it's not a inexpensive solution.

Because of the way the SVP server integrates, it doesn't fit our deployment model, without putting an SVP server at each of my locations; each location would only have maybe 5 Netlink IP Phones. We are looking at alternative solutions, the symbol wireless IP Phones are another option we are looking into.

Re: AVVID integration with symbol netvision phones

The SVP Server handles 80 simultaneous calls. SpectraLink will work around with cost of SVP Server.

The list price of phones, batteries and charger is below the $800.00.

Please contact me for more information.
