Safety and Performance Information
Refer to these sections for information about the impact of power outages and other devices on your Cisco Unified IP Phone.
Power Outage Your accessibility to emergency service through the phone is dependent on the phone being powered. If there is an interruption in the power supply, Service and Emergency Calling Service dialing will not function until power is restored. In the case of a power failure or disruption, you may need to reset or reconfigure equipment before using the Service or Emergency Calling Service dialing. Using External Devices The following information applies when you use external devices with the Cisco Unified IP Phone:
Cisco recommends the use of good quality external devices (headsets) that are shielded against unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals. Depending on the quality of these devices and their proximity to other devices such as mobile phones or two-way radios, some audio noise may still occur. In these cases, Cisco recommends that you take one or more of the following actions: Move the external device away from the source of the RF or AF signals. Route the external device cables away from the source of the RF or AF signals. Use shielded cables for the external device, or use cables with a better shield and connector. Shorten the length of the external device cable. Apply ferrites or other such devices on the cables for the external device. Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of the system because Cisco has no control over the quality of external devices, cables, and connectors. The system will perform adequately when suitable devices are attached using good quality cables and connectors. In European Union countries, use only headsets that are fully compliant with the EMC Directive [89/336/EC].

Q. If I trade in an older Cisco Unified IP phone for a new one, do I have to purchase a new
software user license?
A. New user license part numbers have been created (for example, SW-CCM-UL-7906). A user
license must be selected when purchasing; however, a Cisco TMP exception has been created to provide a license credit of nearly 100 percent when a customer moves from one user license to another of equal price (for example, upgrading from a user license for the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905G to a user license for the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G). The exception will be in place within 2 weeks of FCS. Use the Cisco TMP tool to verify the discount.
Q. What Cisco Unified Communications Manager release is required for the Cisco Unified
IP Phone 7906G?
A. Customers are required to use the most recent version of each Cisco Unified Communications
Manager for full support: Cisco Unified CallManager Version 3.3(5)SR2, 4.1(3)SR3a, or 4.1(2)SR1 for Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) only; Cisco Unified Communications Manager Versions 5.0(2) and higher for both SCCP and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) support.
Q. Does the new Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G identify itself differently to Cisco Unified
Communications Manager (or Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express) than a Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905G?
A. Yes. It is a new phone model. Q. What phone firmware version is required? A. A new phone firmware version is required for this new Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G. Cisco
Unified IP Phone 7906 SCCP Firmware Version 7.2(3) will be posted to Cisco.com when the phone is orderable.
Q. What protocols will be supported? A. The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G will support SCCP at FCS and SIP within a month of FCS. Q. Will SIP be supported in the future? When? A. Support for SIP Version 2 will be available within a month of FCS. Q. What languages are supported on the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G? A. Language localization support varies by Cisco Unified Communications Manager version
Cisco CallManager 3.3(5) Service Release 1 (SR1) supports the following languages: Danish, Dutch, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
Cisco Unified CallManager 4.1(3) supports all the languages listed previously, plus Catalan and English (United Kingdom), Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Hong Kong, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, and Korean. For the two listed Cisco Unified Communications Manager platforms, localized user interface language support for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G will be released at FCS (unless noted otherwise). Localized documentation will also be available at this time. The feature set is identical to that of the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G except for those features that require a switched PC port, which the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G does not have.

Features and Functions Q. What new features are supported? A. The following are some of the new features available with the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G:
High-resolution, pixel-based, monochrome display for improved text, graphics, and productivity-enhancing audio and text Extensible Markup Language (XML) applications (including support of double-byte and unicode characters)
IEEE 802.3af PoE (Class 2) plus continued support for Cisco inline power Enhanced platform to support future capabilities (IP Version 6 [IPv6], for example) Factory-installed certificates for ease of security configuration Secure, encrypted communication streams (signaling and media) Group listen
Q. Is the Cisco Unified IP Phone Expansion Module 7914 supported? A. No. The Cisco Unified IP Phone Expansion Module 7914 is supported only on the Cisco
Unified IP Phones 7960G, 7961G, 7961G-GE, 7970G and 7971G-GE.
Q. Is Cisco Unified Video Advantage for desktop videoconferencing supported? A. No. Cisco Unified Video Advantage will not be supported because the Cisco Unified IP Phone
7906G has no PC port.
Q. Is there speakerphone capability and headset connectivity? A. No. Like the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905G, the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G does not
include hands-free speakerphone and headset connectivity. The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G supports monitoring (one-way audio through the chassis speaker) and group listen (European-style speakerphone using the handset and the chassis speaker.)
Q. Does Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express support the Cisco Unified IP
A. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express will support the Cisco Unified IP Phone
7906G starting with Version 4.0.
Q. Is Cisco Unified Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST) supported? What about
A. Yes. These are both supported in Cisco Unified SRST 4.1 or 4.0(3). Power Q. Does the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G support Cisco inline power or IEEE 802.3af
A. The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G supports both Cisco inline power and IEEE PoE (Class 2). Q. As a Class 2 IEEE device, does the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G require a continuous
draw of 6.49W (standard Class 2)?
A. No. When Cisco Unified IP Phones are connected to common switches such as the Cisco
Catalyst 3560 Series Switches or Catalyst 3570 Switch, the switch can automatically detect the phone type and provide the exact amount of power that the phone needs. The use of the Cisco Discovery Protocol provides this greater granularity to the power classification, allowing more accurate reporting of power consumption. Because the reporting is more accurate,

Cisco phones can be more energy efficient than other IP phones in the same IEEE power class, allowing more IEEE endpoints per switch or lower overall power costs.
Q. Is there a recommended powering option? A. No. Powering decisions depend on the customer's environment. Either of the inline power
methods can be used, or the standard Cisco Unified IP Phone external power adapter can be used for local power.
Availability and Ordering Q. When can I order the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G? A. It is orderable today. Q. Is a station user license required? A. Yes. As with all Cisco phones, a station user license must be purchased with each phone. Q. What items are included in the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G list price? A. The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G ships with the base unit (with attached foot stand), a
handset, a handset cord, an Ethernet cord, a pictorial quick-start guide, regulatory compliance and safety information (RSCI), a Cisco 1-year limited hardware warranty card, and an enduser software license agreement.
