Embedded Integrator

Virtual Integrator


With this new feature, the Nx70 can be connected to an SIP platform via an IP connection (SIP trunk).

It offers the possibility to use the Nx70 behind Cisco, like it is described below.

To use the Nx70 behind an Cisco platform, there are 3 options:

  1. As SIP device direct registered to Cisco (Not supported)
  2. As SIP device via "anynode"
  3. Via an SIP trunk

1. As SIP device direct registered to Cisco

It is not possible to use N870 behind Cisco connected as SIP device, due to the fact that Cisco wants to have for each SIP account an separate port, Gigaset Nx70 is using for each SIP account the same port.

Is also an expensive solution as for each DECT handset you need to buy an Cisco SIP device license.

2. As SIP device via "anynode"

Via an anynode SBC, you can register Nx70 to the anynode and anynode will register itself to cisco.

For this anynode knowledge is required including hardware and software.

3. Via SIP trunk (Not valid when using embedded or virtual integrator)

As this is an proven technology with N720, and from now possible with Nx70.

Via provisioning, you can configure the Nx70 to be used via an Cisco SIP trunk.


  • No Cisco licenses
  • Proven technology
  • Easy to configure

Telephony functionality:

  • Calls between Cisco desktop phones and DECT handsets
  • Call transfer
  • Conference call is not supported

Configuration for option 3

Via the provisioning file below, you can configure the Nx70 system SipProvider settings.

The next step is to add your handsets.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<provisioning version="1.1" productID="e2">
	 	<param name="SipProvider.0.CallsWhileUnregistered" value="y"/>
		<!--When outgoing calls are rejected, then change "localhost" to "<IP address Cisco>" --> 
		<param name="SipProvider.0.Domain" value="Localhost"/>        
		<param name="SipProvider.0.ProxyServerAddress" value="<IP address Cisco>"/> 
		<param name="SipProvider.0.Name" value="Trunk"/> 
		<param name="SipProvider.0.RegServerAddress" value=""/> 
	 	<!-- 1 = UDP, 2 = TCP -->
		<param name="SipProvider.0.TransportProtocol" value="1"/>

Cisco call manager setup.

  • All DECT extensions are configured as "route patterns" on cisco /which automatically creates a sip trunk for every DECT extension, which is using the destination address of DECT manager.
  • Protocol can be UDP or TCP, codec is g711ulaw on both ends
  • Standard sip profile is being used for sip trunks on Cisco call manager - no encryption or certificates
  • Trunk to trunk transfer is allowed on Cisco call manager
  • External transfers are allowed in service parameters on Cisco call manager
  • Cisco call manager, cisco voice gateway and DECT cell are on the same VLAN
  • Caller ID between cisco and DECT extension is available
  • When a DECT phone makes an external call, caller id is also present.
  • No labels
