Hello!

Can the Cisco 7942 with SIP Firmware used as standalone SIP device?

I mean can it works with SIP provider through NAT, like it can Cisco SPA-303?

There has been a discussion on this before.

https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/11955621/register-cisco-phone-7942-external-voip-provider

However, there was no conclusion to it.

 

This discussion here talked about registering 7942 with Asterisk.

Since Asterisk is a 3rd party PBX, this shows that the phone CAN register with SIP firmware with a Provider. However, you will have to work extensively with the provider to get this done.

For instance, you need to create a custom cnf.xml file for the phone to download. To do this you'll need to copy the configuration from the CUCM, and then modify it as per your needs. Apart from this, the firmware files should also be located on the TFTP server that you're pointing to on the phone.

Also, you need to make sure that the provider doesn't have any mechanism on their side to block messages going out from the phone to their end. Packet captures would help you here.

There isn't a guarantee that this would work, but you can definitely try it.

 

Thanks
