Cisco Managed Switches Smart Port issue

Here are some known issues with some Cisco managed Switches having Smartports that can cause CyberData Devices to have issues.

The SF/SG 200 and SF/SG 300 Series Managed Switches and some other Cisco switches have a smartport configuration that may cause Digium phones and CyberData devices to unregister and to timeout during SIP Registration.

Symptoms: Phones in the data network going into error mode and unreachable, the devices not able to register or reconnect with the cloud service even if the user rebooted it.
References: According to traces and logs from the firewall, devices were having some timeout issues and were not able to establish connection.
