ScopTEL Cisco Integration

ScopTEL - Cisco SIP Phone Integration

Cisco Phone Background

Cisco is known for their SCCP Protocol, however they have acquired several companies over the years and have developed SIP firmware for use in their proprietary call control platforms and Third Party Call Control (3PCC).

One of their acquisitions included Sipura/Linksys (Cisco SPA-Series SIP Phones) and has since been sold to Belkin. The SPA-Series has been supported by ScopTEL for many years.  This document does not pertain to these existing devices.

Cisco Phones such as the 39XX, 69XX, 78XX, 79XX models have been developed internally by Cisco and ScopTEL support for these models has been previously  limited to SIP Line and Directory support.

This document details ScopServ’s enhanced support for the 39XX, 69XX, 78XX, 79XX models and provides clarity on which Cisco IP Phones are supported by ScopServ.

Cisco Phone Integration – Cisco Firmware Pre-Requisites and Enhanced Support

ScopServ will only support Cisco Phones as documented in Table 1: ScopTEL Cisco APS Support List

A Cisco device running firmware with Call Manager support will have access to the following features in addition to SIP Line and Directory support when the pre-requisite ScopServ packages are also installed:
Busy Lamp Field (BLF)
BLF Pickup (Invoked by Pressing the Blinking BLF Soft Key)

Cisco Phone Configuration

It is highly recommended you use the DHCP Server in your ScopTEL Server to deploy Cisco phones, however if you are using a third party DHCP server you must configure your DHCP Server’s Scope Option 150 ASCII string to the IP address of your ScopTEL server.  This setting instructs the phone to download its configuration files from the ScopTEL server as it acquires an IP address
If you are using the native ScopTEL DHCP Server to provide DHCP to the phones then proceed with the following information.

Server – Provisioning

This configuration sets the required variables for the DHCP server when adding Phone Classes
Edit the SIP Server Address so that it matches the local LAN IP address of the ScopTEL server
Edit the same for TFTP Provisioning and HTTP Provisioning and save your settings
The Web service will restart automatically



Network – DHCP Server - Classes

Enable the DHCP Server
Click on Classes





Click on Create Provisioning Classes

This will add a MAC address Class for each Cisco model and set the correct TFTP Path for Option 150




Click Add to add a new subnet
Enter the required Scope Range and configurations for your Network and click on the Classes tab



Select all Classes and Add your DHCP configuration
Commit your Network Changes
Restart the DHCP Service from the Network General Tab



Telephony – Extensions – Phone Options

Edit the Extension’s Phone Options tab for the required Cisco Phone
Enable Cisco Call Manager support
The Subscriptions (BLF) list must be populated with each extension you wish to monitor with a BLF soft key via 
Provisioning
When done Save your changes



Telephony – Auto Provisioning – Servers Tab

Cisco phones are provisioned like other supported SIP devices in the APS but with a few additional requirements.
On the Servers tab you must Enable Use Call Manager
The SIP Proxy must be on the same subnet as the phone



Telephony – Auto Provisioning – PBX Services

You may add a directory to each phone or template by configuring the internal Directory feature on the PBX Services Tab



Telephony – Auto Provisioning – Lines Tab

Add an Extension to Line 1 (other lines are optional).  This is the primary Line and handles all speech paths for the phone.
Change other Lines to Speed Dial/BLF in order to assign Speed Dials or Busy Lamp Fields to available soft keys
In this example 213 and 216 match the subscriptions assigned to the Extension’s Phone Options.  This is the requirement in order for the proper indication of BLF soft keys.
Line 4 is assigned the Voicemail Login Feature code for Message Waiting Indication and to Speed Dial the Voicemail Login code.
Save or Add your changes when done
Commit Telephony changes
Commit APS changes
You have successfully configured an  Extension and provisioned a phone for this user.
Reboot the Phone so it can download its configuration files.



Cisco Phone – Fwd All Soft Key

Depending on the model of Cisco SIP Phone you may have a ‘Fwd All’ Soft Key
Once you press this key you will be prompted for an Immediate Call Forward Destination
The allowed destinations are as follows and are allowed or disallowed per Extension in User Options:
Voicemail
Follow Me
Personal Ivr
Local Extension
External Number
Camp-On
Personal ACD
Deactivate
