Cloud Readiness with Variphy As-Built Reporting for CUCM 

For organizations preparing to migrate from Cisco telephony to a cloud calling platform, it is vital to assess cloud readiness by identifying hardware revisions for their Cisco IP phones. Depending on the model, phones might require hardware version V03 or V04 to convert to the MPP firmware, which is necessary for cloud calling.  

Variphy As-Built Reporting for Cisco provides the ability to capture and report on the Cisco IP phones’ hardware revisions as part of the “IP Phone Serial Numbers, Firmware, and CDP” report option in CSV format.

How to assess cloud readiness with Variphy

Similar to other Cisco IP phone information like the serial number, the hardware revision is not stored in CUCM. Unless you preserve the original packaging or box, it must be captured from the phone. Variphy can now automate this collection and reporting for you.  

To get started, open the App Launcher and navigate to “As-Built Reports.”

Assess cloud readiness with Variphy integration

To produce this report, you’ll need to select the “IP Phone Serial Numbers, Firmware, and CDP” in the CUCM Content Options. In the Output Format dropdown, choose “CSV.”  

If you don’t need every model of phone included, a Sub Set can be applied to filter out phones by device pool, phone model, or other criteria.

The CSV report output will contain new “Hardware Revision” and “Version ID” columns for each phone, along with several other values you might find helpful!
