Product Description

Highlights
- Basic 1-line business-class IP phone
- Connects directly to an Internet telephone service provider or to an IP private branch exchange (PBX)
- Easy installation and secure remote provisioning; as well as web-based configuration
- Supports both Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Smart Phone Control Protocol (SPCP) with the Cisco® Unified Communications 500 Series

Comprehensive Interoperability and SIP-Based Feature Set
Based on SIP; the Cisco SPA 301 1-Line IP Phone has been tested to help ensure comprehensive interoperability with equipment from voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructure leaders; enabling service providers to quickly roll out competitive; feature-rich services to their customers. With hundreds of features and configurable service parameters; the Cisco SPA 301 addresses the requirements of traditional business users while building on the advantages of IP telephony. Features such as easy station moves and shared line appearance (across local and geographically dispersed locations) are just some of the many advantages of the SPA 301.

Carrier-Grade Security; Provisioning; and Management
The Cisco SPA 301 uses standard encryption protocols to perform highly secure remote provisioning and unobtrusive in-service software upgrades. Remote provisioning tools include detailed performance measurement and troubleshooting features; enabling network providers to deliver high-quality support to their subscribers. Remote provisioning also saves service providers the time and expense of managing; preloading; and reconfiguring customer premises equipment.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I have just bought one of these and got it working nicely on my SIP system. Solid construction as you would expect from Cisco, a feeling of quality no cheap nasty plastics. The sound quality is good, the buttons nice and solid. It can be mounted on the wall or on a desk, a good entry level SIP connection.

The 4 buttons on the side do not light up, they look like they should but they don't. The only light is a multicolour one in the top corner, this indicates voicemail, errors and any conditions worthy of note. It didn't occur to me when ordering the unit, but it has no display so can't record a missed call. It doesn't seem to have memory buttons either. These were not missing features, just something I took for granted and missed.

Generally I found the unit nice to setup, it's not for the faint hearted though. Cisco seem to struggle with simplified setup wizards, they still present complex industrial GUI. There is no question this phone is highly competent. It did pick the inevitable fight with my Draytek router, but then I have found many SIP phones do! So, this can't really be held against it. To be fair, after an initial issue of "ARP mismatch" (resulting an a refusal to connect) was resolved by giving it a fixed IP on the Draytek router(where the bug resides). It's remained connected whilst others have keeled over a couple of times. I view this as a sign of quality. Diagnosing this problem required it to be hooked up to my syslog server though, which many may not have hence my added detail here.

The ring tone CAN be changed, though many think it can't, but the default one is a bit weedy and discrete. Changing it, is an undocumented nightmare via the GUI and I still haven't entirely mastered it, not Ciscos' finest hour.
