SIP support for CP7960

Does Call Manager support SIP? If so which version will I need...

Re: SIP support for CP7960

There are SIP enabled phones & gateways, with other SIP enabled devices coming. Because SIP is a distributed architecture there are many caveats & possibly *missing* features - take care in your design & make sure everything you need is available. I'm sure you're not getting the clarification you would like - feel free to contact me off line.

The current release of CM does not support SIP. Future releases may have SIP support, but I am not sure what version that would be.

Re: SIP support for CP7960

Currently the 7960 IP Phones can support either SIP

or Skinny (Call Manager) protocol. The same

hardware is used, but different software would need

to be loaded. It can only operate in one-mode, not both at the same time. Currently, CM does not support SIP.

Call processing in SIP is done by "SIP Servers", which might be functioning as Proxy, redirect or Registrar servers. With SIP being a distributed architecture, "features" could resides on the SIP Phones, or on SIP Servers.
