Cisco 7960 SIP Firmware
« on: December 02, 2011, 06:58:44 pm »

Hi, I have a Cisco 7960 that I would like to integrate with LMCE and have two questions:

1) What are the considerations for SIP vs. SCCP for this phone? The wiki advises installation of the SIP image though the Bmac2's user page indicates that his 7960 is running fine with SCCP, using the same installation instructions as for the 7970. I've also installed a 7970 and it works great. Could someone please clarify? Bmac2s page is here:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/User:Bmac2

2) Assuming that I want to use the SIP image, which version of the firmware should I use? The Cisco instructions, referenced below, describe that installation of anything beyond version 5 is irreversable. The latest version on the Cisco site is 7.5. If people could tell me which versions they are running, that would be great. The link for the instructions is:

Thanks to all. Especially the developers.

Hi,

Ok, seeing the number of views without a reply, I'll add another question in the hope of getting some clarity on the need to reflash my Cisco phones.

Are you using a Cisco 7960/61/62? If yes, are you using a SIP image? If SCCP, is any functionality compromised?

I'll help you bump this. I just bought a 7970 and I'm wondering what steps to take. SIP or SCCP, firmware update or no?

in the past the SIP firmware was lacking xml push functionality for some models. That is the reason why SCCP was chosen.

My 7970 works great with SCCP firmware, including the orbiter. I just followed the instructions in the wiki to put the MAC address into the device template so that it would be recognized.

My understanding is that the non-color 796x devices will work with both, but was hoping to hear experiences from the field.
