The Cisco VoIP phone transmits calls over the same data network that your computer uses. Combining voice and data over the same network means that you have more control over your phone and its features.
Cisco technology adds the ability to associate your primary telephone number with your login ID, password, and associated profile preferences. Because your profile is associated with your login, you can log in to any Cisco phone within your call group and place or receive calls on that phone as if it were your own.
