[FAQ] What is the difference between SIP and UCS / UC Software configuration parameters and values?

Important Differences between SIP 3.2.5 or previous to UCS 3.3.x or 4.0.0:



Prior to UC Software the Phone always needed to load a sip.cfg and a phone1.cfg matching the SIP Release that was currently installed on the Phone via the 000000000000.cfg or <mac>.cfg.



Parameters like the Corporate Directory for example need to be activated in addition to a Productivity Suite license depending on the Phone Model and/or Software Version.


The activation in UCS 3.3.0 or newer works via:


< feature feature.corporateDirectory.enabled="1/>


The activation in SIP 3.2.x or previous works via:


<feature"corporate-directory" feature.19.enabled="1"/>


Above is a common mistake to be made when configuring phones.

Another Example is KEY Programming

UCS 3.3.x and later:


<button><key key.SPIP335.34.function.prim="Null"/></button>



SIP 3.2.5 or earlier:


<button><key key.IP_330.34.function.prim="Null"/></button>
