There is now a 3rd party iPhone Sip client that works successfully with the UC500. It does have the Apple imposed limitations on Use over 3G and not being able to run as a background process on the iphone, but other than that it works pretty well.
For a configuration that works with the UC500 go to
Former student :)
Well, I got the version 3.0 of the SIP client, version 3.1 on the iphone... But I´m not able to connect via VPN. I can´t even get any SIP reg messages on the UC when I try to connect via VPN. Any ideas how to begin to troubleshoot.
WoooooHoooo Another program to play with on the iPhone :)
From where I can download the client? And what about blackberries and other smart phones? Does the client works?
I do not understand exactly the meaning of your message (I do not speak English); however, I think more than anyone would be happy to see CCA also supported in more than one mobile device, probably starting from the BlackBerry and iPhone devices.
Perhaps the ideal would be to have Cisco Mobile, usable on CUCM and UC500/CCA, even if the features are reduced, or otherwise support the CCA on a simple SIP client (avoiding the need for CLI); I guess the CCA team in the roadmap to manage mobile devices, when?
Obviously, this is consistent with the fair trade policy and differences between CM, CME and UC500... Probably there are other priorities but I would say that a more comprehensive management of trunk and SIP client is missing ... Among other things it would be nice to have a whislist that on which everyone can add a vote ... not to condition a roadmap, but to understand which features are most desired!
My 2 cents :-)
Yes, Alberto (PM) is working on getting that working on UC500. But it doesnt work today.
Does it register as a SIP endpoint? If so all Im saying is CCA doesnt support that today.
As Steve has mentioned, Cisco Mobile 8 client is not supported in CCA today, but we have plans to start supporting it in one of the upcoming CCA release later this year.
I see that in the roadmap there are two releases: one in July and the other end of the year... we will have support for the iPhone already July? There is already a beta? I saw that the CME 8.6 provides support for i*, now it's just a question of implementation within the CCA?
Configuring iPhone and iPodTouch Softphone SIP Client
To configure the iPhone and iPod touch softphone SIP client for Cisco Unified CME 8.6, follow these steps:
•Cisco Unified CME 8.6 or a later version.
•Conferencing feature through the Add Call action key is not supported.
•Call hand off to the mobile network is not supported.
•Shared line is not supported.
I found post with deploying Cisco Mobile 8.1 on CME 8.6:
Tried to make it run myself, but with no success. Guess I'm doing something wrong. Maybe someone can check my config?
Thank you for reply!
Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. I'm running CME 8.6 on 2811, so it is a bit off topic.
Did you test it? Can you check my config?
Send me your configuration, I have Mobile 8.1 working on CME 8.6.
Can't wait for the UC500 to be upgraded to CME 8.6
Ryan, thank you!
Lets move our discussion here:
I put there my config.
