Configuration of Extension Mobility Feature on UC500 Series

Objective

The Extension Mobility (EM) feature allows the administrator to provide phone mobility for end users. This allows Cisco IP Phone users to log into an EM-enabled phone where they can make and receive calls using their personal directory number and speed dials, and optionally access a personal voice mailbox. The EM phone profile defines the button assignments and speed dial settings of an EM-enabled phone where there are no EM users logged into the phone. Multiple phones can be associated with the same log-out profile.

This document explains how to configure Extension Mobility Feature on the UC500 Series.
