Intro

SPA 5xx

This phone is fully supported by babblevoice. All others on this page are unsupported by us.

Before you start, we only support phones which are running firmware 7.5.2b or later. It is possible to upgrade phones running earlier versions yourself but that is outside the scope of this document.

The Cisco SPA5xx range of phones can be provisioned using the babblevoice provisioning system. Have a look at the video below on how to use it.

We configure the following items for you

  • Upgrade to relevant firmware
  • Configure CODECS - and prefer G722 - High Definition
  • Set the time
  • Configure multiple accounts if this device is setup for it
  • Configure the voicemail extension so that you can create a babblevoice rule “when a phone calls itself…”

NB: THe voice quality on this phone is pretty good. But we dropped a mark as it does not support iLBC. There are some users who require lower bandwidth CODECs so we had to drop this mark as this CODEC is missing.

SPA 303

This phone can be configured in an identical way to the 5xx range of phones and we have tested this on a Cisco SPA 303 running 7.5.2a firmware - although we recommend you upgrade it to the latest version.

Cisco 7905G

The Cisco 7905 is a phone that has been superseded by several models since it was discontinued years ago. This doesn’t stop it being a good quality phone if you ever found one gathering dust in the back of a cupboard. You are very much on your own with this phone though. The instructions here are in the hope they will be useful to you - this phone has not been made by Cisco in a long time so we can no longer actively support it.

A Simple device, it hooks into BabbleVoice very well, and from what little we have used it, is has proven to have all the basic features, and very nice call quality (As we have come to expect of Cisco and its sub-divisions).

  • Cisco Phone - Once you have plugged in your Cisco phone (Providing the network settings are OK), it will come to rest on this screen.
  • Opening the Menu - Press the “Globe” key to open the main menu.
  • The Main Menu - Select settings using the arrow buttons and the “Select” soft key.
  • The Settings Menu - Using the arrow buttons, scroll down to “SIP Configuration” and press the “Select” soft key.
  • Enter admin mode - When you enter the “SIP Configuration” menu, press the following buttons in rapid succession: ,,#. Then, if asked (this may not happen depending on firmware) enter the admin password (Default is “1234”) and use the “Accept” soft key.
  • SIP Settings - Enter the settings as you see them in the screen shots (Replacing all of the personal settings with your own. I.E. In place of omniis.babblevoice.com, use mydomain.babblevoice.com). The menu items to configure are 1, 2, 3, 4 (use login ID=Yes), 5, 6, 7, 9 and 11. If you are using more than one of these devices, it is important that the “Local SIP Port” and the “Local RTP Port” is different on each device, start at port 5060 for SIP and port 16384 for RTP.

Upon completion, save and exit and the phone will register ready for use.
