sip88xx.11-7-1-17 are for Enterprise phones. You should be using MPP (3PCC) phones if you want to register to Asterisk. I would suggest getting it replaced with the right SKU.

 

You can find the right model here: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/collaboration-endpoints/unified-ip-phone-8800-series/datasheet-c78-738030.html?cachemode=refresh

 

Look for Table 5 under Ordering Information.

 

Thanks.

Thank you for reply.

I have checked the list:

CP-8861-3PCC-K9=

Cisco IP Phone 8861 shipped with multiplatform phone firmware

 

Just need help to upload the SIP configuration in the phone.

 

Do you mean the phone you have is already "CP-8861-3PCC-K9="

What is the current software version on the phone?

 

Thanks.

Active load is - SIP88xx.11-7-1-11

Model No :- CP-8861

This is an Enterprise firmware. You will have to replace the phone with the 3PCC version - "CP-8861-3PCC-K9="

 

Thanks.

Can we change the firmware, as we do for Cisco 7940 and 7960

No. Enterprise to MPP (3PCC) or the other way is not supported as of now.

 

Thanks.

You can, but it will be the hard way, as you don't have a 3PCC model which has a nice GUI where you can enter all the configuration for the registration with your 3rd party PBX.

Since you have an enterprise phone, which is meant to used with CUCM, you will need to manually format and provide the phone with the configuration files that it would expect from CUCM, there are plenty of threads at CSC and google you can use as reference.

 

I'd suggest you swap that phone you got, for the 3PCC variant.
