Does Cisco IP Softphone support SCCP?

Posted on 2005-05-10
Last Modified: 2010-08-05
We are implementing a call recording solution on VOIP and we want to sniff call sessions. In case of Hardphones(stations) we are recieving SCCP thus we can easily identify call sessions. Does cisco softphone work with any VOIP session protocol. SIP, SCCP, MGCP etc.
any reference appreciated.

Forgot to mention we are using Cisco Call Manager, Cisco IP HardPhones and Cisco IP SoftPhones in our organization.

    Hi RSajid,
    Cisco IP Softphone doesn't support SCCP, but Cisco IP Communicator does.

    See for information on this.

    Does that help?
