Device Configuration Menu


The Device Configuration menu provides access to eight submenus from which you can view a variety of settings that are specified in the configuration file for a phone. The phone downloads the configuration file from the TFTP server.

 

For instructions about how to access the Device Configuration menu and its sub-menus, see Display Settings Menu.

 

Unified CM Configuration Menu

The Unified CM Configuration menu contains the options Unified CM1, Unified CM2, Unified CM3, Unified CM4, and Unified CM5. These options show the Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers that are available to process from the phone, in prioritized order. To change these options, use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, Cisco Unified CM Group Configuration.

 

For an available Cisco Unified Communications Manager server, an option on the Unified CM Configuration menu will show the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server IP address or name and one of the states shown in the following table.


State

Description


Active 


Cisco Unified Communications Manager server from which the phone is currently receiving call-processing services


Standby

An option may also display one of more of the designations or icons shown in the following table. 

 

Designation

Description


SRST 


Indicates a Survivable Remote Site Telephony router that can provide Cisco Unified Communications Manager functionality with a limited feature set. This router assumes control of call processing if all other Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers become unreachable. The SRST Cisco Unified Communications Manager always appears last in the list of servers, even if it is active.  

 

For more information, see the Survivable Remote Site Telephony Configurationchapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.


TFTP

 
Indicates that the phone was unable to register with a Cisco Unified Communications Manager listed in its configuration file, and it registered with the TFTP server instead.
               

 

(Authentication icon)


Appears as a shield and indicates that the call is from a trusted device,  and that the connection to Cisco Unified Communications Manager is  authenticated. For more information about authentication, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.

 

(Encryption icon)


Appears as a padlock and indicates that the call is from a trusted device,  and that the connection to Cisco Unified Communications Manager is  authenticated and encrypted. For more information about authentication  and encryption, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.   

 

The Encryption icon is also displayed when a Cisco Unified IP Phone  is configured as protected. For more information about protected calls,  see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.  Protected calls are not authenticated.

Load Server

 

Used to optimize installation time for phone firmware upgrades and offload the WAN by storing images locally, negating the need to traverse the WAN link for each phone's upgrade.

 

You can set the Load Server to another TFTP server IP address or name other than the TFTP Server 1 or TFTP Server 2 from which the phone firmware can be retrieved for phone upgrades. When the Load Server option is set, the phone contacts the designated server for the firmware upgrade.

 

Note

The Load Server option allows you to specify an alternate TFTP server for phone upgrades only. The phone continues to use TFTP Server 1 or TFTP Server 2 to obtain configuration files. The Load Server option does not provide management of the process and of the files, such as file transfer, compression, or deletion. 

 

From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Device Phone Phone Configuration.

Enable CDP on the PC port when Cisco VT Advantage/Unified Video Advantage (CVTA) is connected to the PC port. CVTA does not work without CDP interaction with the phone.

 

Note 

When CDP is disabled in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, a warning is presented when CDP is disabled on the PC port prevents CVTA from working.

 

Note 

The current PC and switch port CDP values are shown on the Settings menu.


From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Device Phone.


CDP: SW Port


Indicates whether CDP is supported on the switch port (default is enabled).

  • Enable CDP on the switch port for VLAN assignment for the phone, power negotiation, QoS management, and 802.1x security.

  • Enable CDP on the switch port when the phone is connected to a Cisco switch.

Note    

When CDP is disabled in Cisco

Unified Communications Manager,a warning is presented when CDP is disabled on the switch port only if the phone is connected to a non-Cisco switch.

 

Note  

The current PC and switch port CDP values are shown on the Settings menu.

Peer Firmware Sharing

 

The Peer Firmware Sharing feature provides these advantages in high speed campus LAN settings:

  • Limits congestion on TFTP transfers to centralized remote TFTP servers

  • Eliminates the need to manually control firmware upgrades

  • Reduces phone downtime during upgrades when large numbers of devices are reset simultaneously

Peer Firmware Sharing may also aid in

firmware upgrades in branch/remote office deployment scenarios over bandwidth-limited WAN links.

 

When enabled, it allows the phone to discover similar phones on the subnet that are requesting the files that make up the firmware image, and to automatically assemble transfer hierarchies on a per-file basis. The individual files making up the firmware image are retrieved from the TFTP server by only the root phone in the hierarchy, and are then rapidly transferred down the transfer hierarchy to the other phones on the subnet using TCP connections.

 

This menu option indicates whether the phone supports peer firmware sharing.

 

Settings include:

  • Enableddefault
  • Disabled
