Network Configuration Area


The Network Configuration area on a phones web page displays network configuration information and information about other phone settings. The following table describes these items.


You can view and set many of these items from the Network Configuration Menu and the Device Configuration Menu on the Cisco Unified IP Phone. For more information, see Features, Templates, Services, and Users.


To display the Network Configuration area, access the web page for the phone as described in Access Web Page for Phone and then click the Network Configuration hyperlink.

Unified CM 1–5


Host names or IP addresses, in prioritized order, of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers with which the phone can register. An item can also show the IP address of an SRST router that is capable of providing limited Cisco Unified Communications Manager functionality, if such a router is available.

 

For an available server, an item will show the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server IP address and one of the following states:

  • Active: Cisco Unified Communications Manager server from which the phone is currently receiving call-processing services.
  • Standby: Cisco Unified Communications Manager server to which the phone switches if the current server becomes unavailable.
  • Blank: No current connection to this Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.

An item may also include the Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST) designation, which identifies an SRST router capable of providing 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. You configure the SRST router address in the Device Pool section in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration window.
