Thanks Kirk.. I have the 10.3.1 firmware so just curious if there are any other steps to get this to connect to an existing MRA configuration
The endpoint should prompt the user for a service name (this is the domain used for the collab-edge SRV record, ie. example.com), username and password when placed on a network that is not supplied with DHCP option 150. Any alternate TFTP server config should also be cleared from the endpoint.
The 78/88xx 10.3.1 firmware is still in field trials, and still not GA.
Expressway X8.5.2 (still in field trials too) is the release that is targeting support for the 78/88XX as well as the entire DX series.
Yes, the 10.3.1 firmware for both the 78xx and 88xx FCS'd and is available on cisco.com.
You need UCM 10.5.2 SU2 (or 11.0.1) for BLF features on the phones. You can get away with using UCM 9.1.2 SU1+ if you don't need BLF features.
What about MWI and multi-line support on 7800. Also, do we have any use guides to show what the user experience will be like?
It is covered in that link that Kevin posted. MWI Yes, Multiline No
Some major call features, like multiple lines, shared lines, Extension Mobility, CTI, monitoring, and recording, are not supported in Expressway mode.
Now the next question, when does it move from preview/Market Beta into supported? Can't deploy unsupported code into production now...
