Phone of the Day: Cisco 7960 SIP Telephone on an Asterisk Digium Platform at Milwaukee Ale House Milwaukee, WI

My fiancé and I visited Milwaukee last Saturday night and I spotted this Cisco 7960 IP phone at the host stand of the Milwaukee Brewing Company’s Alehouse. 

The early SIP firmware for the early 7900 sets was fairly easy to program, even just by toggling through the telephone itself to change the parameters.  It’s obvious this version of the Cisco phones can be used on any sip platform.  It’s much more difficult to use the newer Cisco IP phone models in a non Cisco environment.

Great beer and food here, by the way!
