2 Cisco 7961G and 7941G OverviewThe Cisco IP Phone 7961G and the 7941G are full-feature telephones that provide voice communication over an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The Cisco IP Phone functions much like a digital business telephone, allowing you to place and receive phone calls and to access features such as mute, hold, transfer, speed dial, call forward, and more.
