Call Back System Requirements for Call Back

User A has a busy trigger set to 1. User A becomes busy. User B then becomes available. User A does not receive an audio alert and does not receive a call-back notification screen on the display. The originating side (User A) sends a Suspend Callback APDU message to the terminating side (User B). User A becomes available. The originating side sends a Resume Callback APDU message to the terminating side. This causes monitoring of User B to resume. When User B becomes available, User A receives an audio alert, and a Callback notification screen displays.

System Requirements for Call Back
Call Back requires the following software components:
• • • • • •

Cisco Unified Communications Manager 5.0 or later Cisco CallManager service that is running on at least one server in the cluster Cisco Database Layer Monitor service that is running on the same server as the Cisco CallManager service Cisco RIS Data Collector service that is running on the same server as the Cisco CallManager service Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale Installer, that is, if you want to use non-English phone locales or country-specific tones Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator

Interactions and Restrictions
Note

If users want the CallBack softkeys and messages on the phone to display in any language other than English, or if you want the user to receive country-specific tones for calls, install the locale installer, as described in the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide. Cisco Unified IP Phones 7970, 7960, 7940, 7912, 7905 and Cisco Communicator support Call Back with the CallBack softkey (can be calling and called phone). You can use call back with some Cisco-provided applications, such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant. A user cannot activate call back for a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Attendant Console pilot point number over a QSIG-enabled intercluster trunk or QSIG-enabled trunk. If the user attempts to activate call back to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Attendant Console pilot point number over a QSIG-enabled intercluster trunk or QSIG-enabled trunk, the message “Callback Cannot be activated on xxxx” displays on the user phone. The user can activate call back for a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Attendant Console pilot point if that pilot point exists in the same Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster as the user DN. The only Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phones that support Call Back is the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7970, 7971, 7961, and 7941.

You can call the following devices and can have call back activated on them:
• • • • • • •

Cisco IP Phone 30 SP+, Cisco IP Phone 12 SP+, Cisco IP Phone 12 SP, Cisco IP Phone 12 S, Cisco IP Phone 30 VIP Cisco Unified IP Phone 7902, Cisco Unified IP Phone 7910, Cisco Unified IP Phone 7935, Cisco Unified IP Phone 7936 Cisco VGC Phone (uses the Cisco VG248 Gateway) Cisco Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) Phones 7971, 7970, 7961, and 7941 Cisco Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Phones 7970, 7971, 7961, and 7941 Cisco Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) 186 and 188 CTI route point forwarding calls to preceding phones

Tip

When a Cisco Extension Mobility user logs in or logs out, any active call completion that is associated with call back automatically gets canceled. If a called phone is removed from the system after call back is activated on the phone, the caller receives reorder tone after pressing the Dial softkey. The user may cancel or reactivate call back. If you forward all calls to voice-messaging system, you cannot activate call back.

Note

Call Back is not supported over SIP trunks.

Additional Information on Call Back Notification with Phones That Are Running SIP
The way that call back notification works on the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7960 and 7940 that are running SIP differs from the phones that are running SCCP. The Cisco Unified IP Phones 7960 and 7940 that run SIP do not support call-back notification for on-hook/off-hook states. The only way that Cisco Unified Communications Manager would know when a line on a SIP 7960 or 7940 phone becomes available is by monitoring an incoming SIP INVITE message that Cisco Unified Communications Manager receives from the phone. After the phone sends SIP INVITE to Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the phone goes on hook, Cisco Unified Communications Manager can send an audio and call back notification screen the SIP 7960/7940 user.

Feature Interactions with Call Forward, iDivert, and Voice-Messaging System Features
The following call states describe the expected behaviors, for the calling party, that occur when Cisco Unified Communications Manager Call Back interacts with the Call Forward, iDivert, and voice-messaging system features. When a called party (Phone B) either forwards an incoming call by using Forward All, Forward Busy, or Forward No Answer; or diverts a call by using iDivert; to a voice-messaging system, the calling party (Phone A) can enter one of the following states with respect to the call back feature:

VM-Connected state: The call gets connected to voice-messaging system. The CallBack softkey remains inactive on the calling party (Phone A) phone.

Call Display Restrictions
The Call Display Restrictions feature allows you to choose the information that will display for calling and/or connected lines, depending on the parties who are involved in the call. By using specific configuration settings in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you can choose to present or restrict the display information for each call. For example, in a hotel environment, you may want to see the display information for calls that are made between a guest room and the front desk; however, for calls between guest rooms, you would not want the call information to display on either phone. The Call Display Restrictions feature enables this functionality. This chapter provides the following information about using the Call Display Restrictions feature in Cisco Unified Communications Manager:
• • • • • •

Introducing Call Display Restrictions, page 3-1 System Requirements for Call Display Restrictions, page 3-3 Scenarios for Using Call Display Restrictions, page 3-3 Interactions, page 3-4 Configuring Call Display Restrictions, page 3-5 Related Topics, page 3-13

Introducing Call Display Restrictions
The Call Display Restrictions feature works within a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster that is running Cisco Unified Communications Manager 5.0 or a later version. To enable Call Display Restrictions, you must configure the following parameters:
Service Parameter:

Always Display Original Dialed Number

Translation Pattern Parameters
• •

Calling Line ID Presentation Connected Line ID Presentation

Phone Configuration/User Device Profile Parameter:

Ignore Presentation Indicators (internal calls only)

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide OL-15410-01

Chapter 3 Introducing Call Display Restrictions

Call Display Restrictions

The combination of these settings allows you to determine whether the display information for each call is allowed or restricted and how to display the connected number. This section includes the following topics:
• •

Overview of Call Display Restrictions, page 3-2 Enabling Call Display Restrictions, page 3-2

Overview of Call Display Restrictions
Call Display Restrictions allow you to selectively display or restrict calling and/or connected line display information. A hotel environment, which might have the following needs, frequently requires this functionality:
• • • • • •

For calls between a guest room and the front desk, both the room and the front desk should see the call information display of each other. For calls between guest rooms, the rooms should not see the call information display of each other. For calls between guest rooms and other hotel extensions (such as the club house), only the rooms should see the call information display. For external calls from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) to the front desk or guest rooms, the call information of the caller should not display if the display settings are restricted. For all calls to the front desk, the call information of internal calls should display. When the front desk transfers a call from a guest room to security, the room phone shows only the dialed number for the front desk.

Enabling Call Display Restrictions
The basis for the functionality of the Call Display Restrictions feature is calls being routed through different translation patterns before the calls are extended to the actual device. Users then dial the appropriate translation pattern numbers to achieve the display restrictions.
Translation Pattern Configuration

To enable Call Display Restrictions, configure translation patterns with different levels of display restrictions by choosing the appropriate option for the calling line ID presentation and the connected line ID presentation parameters. See the “Configuring the Translation Pattern Parameters” section on page 3-6 for additional information about these parameters. You must configure partitions and calling search spaces, along with translation patterns. For more information about these configurations, refer to the Translation Pattern Configuration chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.
Phone Configuration/User Device Profile Configuration

Tip

Next, enable the “Ignore Presentation Indicators (internal calls only)” parameter to ignore any presentation restriction that is received for internal calls and to ensure that the device will display the call information of the remote party.

Call Display Restrictions System Requirements for Call Display Restrictions

See the “Configuring the Phone Configuration” section on page 3-8 for more information about this setting. (For users who log in to phones that are enabled for Extension Mobility, configure this setting from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration User Device Profile window as well. For more information about interactions with Extension Mobility, see the “Extension Mobility” section on page 3-5.)
Connected Number Display

When a call routes through a translation or route pattern, routes to a Call Forward All or Call Forward Busy destination, or gets redirected through a call transfer or CTI application, the connected number display updates to show the modified number or redirected number. To turn off phone display updates, so the phone displays only the dialed digits, set the Cisco CallManager service parameter “Always Display Original Dialed Number” to true. When this service parameter specifies true, the originating phone displays only the dialed digits for the duration of the call.

System Requirements for Call Display Restrictions
The following software components support Call Display Restrictions:

Cisco Unified Communications Manager

The following Cisco Unified IP Phones (SIP and SCCP), software-based devices, and desktop applications support Call Display Restrictions:
• • • •

Cisco Unified IP Phones (7902, 7905, 7910, 7911, 7912, 7920, 7940, 7941, 7960, 7961, 7970, 7971) H.323 clients (such as Microsoft NetMeeting devices) CTI ports (virtual devices that software-based applications use) Cisco IP Communicator

Scenarios for Using Call Display Restrictions
The following scenarios provide examples for using Call Display Restrictions:
• • • • • • • •

Front Desk calls Room-1—Both phones display the call information of each other. Front Desk calls Room-1, and Front Desk transfers the call to Room-2—The final connected parties, Room-1 and Room-2, cannot see the call information display of each other. External (PSTN) calls the Front Desk—The Front Desk honors the display settings of the external caller. External (PSTN) calls Room-1—Room-1 honors the presentation of the external caller; the external caller cannot see the call information display of Room-1. Room-1 calls Front Desk—Both phones display the call information of each other. Room-1 calls Room-2—Neither phone can see the call information display of the other. Room-1 calls Front Desk, and Front Desk transfers the call to Room-2—The final connected parties, Room-1 and Room-2, cannot see the call information display of each other. Room-1 calls Front Desk-1, and Front Desk-1 transfers the call to Front Desk-2—The final connected parties, Room-1 and Front Desk-2, can see the call information display of each other.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide OL-15410-01

Chapter 3 Interactions

Call Display Restrictions

• • • •

Room-1 calls Room-2, and Room-2 transfers the call to Front Desk—Room-1 and Front Desk see the call information display of each other. Club House calls Room-1—Club House cannot display the call information; Room-1 can see the call information display. All parties in a conference call—All phones see “To Conference” for the call information display. Room-1 calls Club House, and Club House manager has all calls forwarded to his mobile—Room-1 sees the Club House number only.

Interactions
The following sections describe how the Call Display Restrictions feature interacts with Cisco Unified Communications Manager applications and call processing:
• • • •

Call Park, page 3-4 Conference List, page 3-5 Conference and Voice Mail, page 3-5 Extension Mobility, page 3-5

The connected number display restriction applies to all calls that originate in the cluster. When set to true, this setting interacts transparently with existing Cisco Unified Communications Manager applications, features, and call processing. The setting applies to all calls that terminate inside or outside the cluster.

Call Park
When the Call Display Restrictions feature is used with Call Park, you must configure an associated translation pattern for each individual call park number to preserve the Call Display Restrictions feature; you cannot configure a single translation pattern to cover a range of call park numbers. Consider the following scenario as an example:
1.

The system administrator creates a call park range of 77x and places it in a partition called P_ParkRange. (The phones in the guest rooms can see the P_ParkRange partition is made visible to the phones in the guest rooms by inclusion of it in the calling search space of the phones (CSS_FromRoom.)) The administrator configures a separate translation pattern for each call park directory number and configures the display settings to Restricted. (In the current scenario, the administrator creates translations patterns for 770, 771, 772...779.) For the Call Display Restrictions feature to work correctly, the administrator must configure separate translation patterns and not a single translation pattern for a range of numbers (such as 77x or 77[0-9]). Room-1 calls Room-2. Room-2 answers the call, and Room-1 parks the call. When Room-1 retrieves the call, Room-2 does not see Room-1 call information display.

See the “Call Park and Directed Call Park” section on page 4-1 for additional information about using the Call Park feature.

Conference List
When you use Call Display Restrictions, you restrict the display information for the list of participants in a conference. For more information about conference lists, refer to the “Phone Features” section in the Cisco Unified IP Phones chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Conference and Voice Mail
When Call Display Restrictions are used with features such as conference and voice mail, the call information display on the phones reflects that status. For example, when the conference feature is invoked, the call information display shows “To Conference.” When voice mail is accessed by choosing the “Messages” button, the call information display shows “To Voicemail.”

Extension Mobility
To use Call Display Restrictions with Extension Mobility, you enable the “Ignore Presentation Indicators (internal calls only)” parameter in both the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone Configuration window and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration User Device Profile window. When you enable Call Display Restrictions with Extension Mobility, the presentation or restriction of the call information depends on the line profile that is associated with the user who is logged in to the device. That is, the configuration that is entered in the user device profile (associated with the user) overrides the configuration that is entered in the phone configuration (of the phone that is enabled for Extension Mobility).

Configuring Call Display Restrictions
To use Call Display Restrictions, make sure that you perform the following Cisco Unified Communications Manager configurations:
• • • • •

Configure partitions and calling search spaces before you add a translation pattern. Configure translation patterns with different levels of display restrictions. From the Phone Configuration window, check the “Ignore Presentation Restriction (internal calls only)” check box to ensure that the call information display for internal calls is always visible. Configure individual, associated translation patterns for each individual Call Park directory number, to work with the Call Park feature. Set the “Always Display Original Dial Number” service parameter to True to ensure privacy and to block connected number updates for redirected calls.

The following list defines several of the call throttling-related service parameters: • Code Yellow Entry Latency defines the maximum allowable delay. You can disable call throttling via the System Throttle Sample Size service parameter. Cisco Unified Communications Manager enters a Code Yellow state to initiate call throttling. Cisco Unified Communications Manager enters a Code Yellow state. Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the values that are specified in the call-throttling-related parameters to evaluate the possibility of a delay to dial tone and also to determine when conditions no longer necessitate call throttling. but Cisco does not recommend disabling call throttling. disk fragmentation or other such events. This chapter provides the following information about call throttling: • • • Introducing Call Throttling. When throttling is necessary to prevent excessive delay to dial tone. could result in a potential delay to dial tone (the interval users experience from going off hook until they receive dial tone). change notification. to handle SDL messages that are sent to Cisco Unified Communications Manager by the various devices in the system as well as the wealth of internal messages that are received and sent by Cisco Unified Communications Manager for various activities such as KeepAlives. You can configure the parameters that are associated with entering and exiting call throttling through several service parameters in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration (System > Service Parameters) although Cisco does not advise modification of these parameters unless recommended by Cisco customer support. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide OL-15410-01 6-1 . routing loops. page 6-1 Troubleshooting Call Throttling. and new call attempts are throttled (denied). and many more types of internal messaging. page 6-2 Related Topics. See Service Parameters Configuration in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide for information on accessing and configuring service parameters. such as heavy call activity. If the calculated average expected delay is more than the value that is specified in this service parameter. and the system exits throttling automatically when such conditions are alleviated.

you generally will require performance monitoring data for debugging. a user who attempts a new call will receive reorder tone and. which indicates whether Cisco Unified Communications Manager has calculated a non-zero value for latency and helps you understand how busy the system is. System Throttle Sample Size indicates the size of the sample. For example: Code Yellow Entry Latency service parameter value: 20 msec Code Yellow Exit Latency service parameter value: 40% Code Yellow Exit Latency value = 20 X 0. Cisco Unified Communications Manager ceases throttling calls by exiting the Code Yellow state and new calls events are again allowed. When Cisco Unified Communications Manager enters a Code Red state. which means Cisco Unified Communications Manager exits Code Yellow state if the calculated message latency drops to 8 msec or lower. may also receive a prompt on the phone display. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide 6-2 OL-15410-01 . To try to circumvent the possibility of a Code Yellow event. for example). Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses a complex algorithm to constantly monitor the system to anticipate when such latency could occur. Cisco Unified Communications Manager ensures that the average expected delay is less than the value of the Code Yellow exit latency. Also.Chapter 6 Troubleshooting Call Throttling Call Throttling and the Code Yellow State • Code Yellow Exit Latency Calculation determines the acceptable percentage of Code Yellow Entry Latency to specify exit criteria for leaving the Code Yellow state (Code Yellow exit latency) when Cisco Unified Communications Manager has initiated call throttling. Call throttling effectively avoids the problem in which a user tries to place a new call. To arrive at a percentage. When call throttling is engaged. When the delay to dial tone is within the guidelines of the call-throttling-related service parameters. consider the possible causes of a system overload. If this duration is met and the system is still in Code Yellow state. a sample size of 10 means that Cisco Unified Communications Manager must calculate a non-zero latency value for 10 consecutive seconds before it will calculate the average expected delay and compare it to the value in the CodeYellow Entry Latency parameter. Cisco Unified Communications Manager enters a Code Red state. Frequent non-zero values in this counter could indicate a potential overload condition on the system. • Code Yellow Duration specifies the number of minutes that a Cisco Unified Communications Manager system can remain in a Code Yellow state (call throttling). The basis for the value that you specify in this parameter comprises a formula that uses the value in the Code Yellow Entry Latency parameter. which indicates that Cisco Unified Communications Manager has remained in a Code Yellow state for an extended period and cannot recover. in seconds. use the following formula: Code Yellow Entry Latency value multiplied by the Code Yellow Exit Latency value. but the length of delay between going off-hook and receiving dial tone is excessive enough to cause a reaction in the user (such as complaining to the system administrator or questioning whether the system is down or the phone is broken. the Cisco CallManager service restarts. which also produces a memory dump that may be helpful for analyzing the failure. depending on the phone model. that is used to calculate the average expected delay for Cisco Unified Communications Manager to handle an SDL message. Cisco Unified Communications Manager begins rejecting new calls. which specifies the delay in milliseconds.4 = 8 msec. Troubleshooting Call Throttling CCM/SDI and SDL trace files record call throttling events and can provide useful information. To get out of the Code Yellow state. • When delay to dial tone is calculated to be over the threshold that is configured in the call-throttling-related service parameters. You can disable call throttling via this parameter. For example. The Cisco CallManager System Performance object (viewable in the Cisco Unified Real-Time Monitoring Tool) includes a counter called ThrottlingSampleActivity.

Calling Search Space and Partitions, page 9-20 Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant CTI Route Point, page 9-21

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant provides a one-time-use configuration wizard that helps the administrator configure partitions, calling search spaces, a route point, and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant phone service. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard also creates the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service parameters in the IPMA Device Configuration Defaults section. For more information on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard, see the “Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard” section on page 9-17. This document provides specific information about Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant configuration. For more information about configuring Calling Search Spaces, Partitions, and CTI Route Points, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.

Note

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard
With the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard, configuration takes less time and eliminates errors. The partitions, calling search spaces, and route point automatically get created when the administrator successfully runs and completes the configuration wizard. The wizard also creates BAT templates for the manager phone, the assistant phone, and all other user phones. The administrator can use the BAT templates to configure the managers, assistants, and all other users. Refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration Guide. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard only creates the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service parameters in the IPMA Device Configuration Defaults section of the Service Parameters Configuration window. You must enter the remaining service parameters manually. For service parameter information, see the “Setting the Service Parameters for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant” section on page 9-22. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard provides windows for each configuration parameter. The windows provide the administrator with preconfigured information. If the administrator prefers to use other configuration information (for example, partition names), the administrator can change the preconfigured information to the appropriate information. Perform the following procedure to configure the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant system parameters by using the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant Configuration Wizard.

Any errors that the configuration wizard generates get sent to a trace file. Access this file by using the following CLI command: file get activelog tomcat/logs/ccmadmin/log4j With the data that is collected from the configuration windows, the wizard automatically creates the partitions, calling search spaces, a route point, and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant phone services. The wizard populates the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service parameters in the IPMA Device Configuration Defaults section of the Service Parameters Configuration window. Additionally, the wizard creates the manager phone template, the assistant phone template, and the Everyone phone template that BAT uses to configure phones for use with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant. Refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration Guide for information about configuring the manager and assistant devices.

Calling Search Space and Partitions
A Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant route point (called CTI route point) intercepts calls for the managers and determines where to route them; therefore, all calls for the managers should flow through the route point first. To accomplish the call flow, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant uses calling search spaces. Calls from lines that the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service must route or act upon should have a calling search space that has the route point partition (you can call this partition CTI Route Point) that is configured as the primary partition, and you can call the secondary partition the Everyone partition. See the following example. For a manager who has multiple lines and who uses proxy line support, those lines must fall in the range that is covered by the route point (for example, a route point of 1xxx means that manager lines must fall in 1000 - 1999 range).
Example

Note

A user (in Everyone partition) places a call to a manager primary line (in Manager partition). Because the partition for the originating call does not include the manager primary line, the manager line number gets searched through the calling search space. The order of priority of the partitions in the calling search space provides basis for the search. Because the user line has a calling search space that comprises CTI Route Point and Everyone, the search for the manager primary line begins with the CTI route point partition. Because the CTI route point matches the manager primary number, the call gets presented to the route point. The Cisco IP Manager Assistant service that is monitoring the route point gets the call and routes the call by using the manager settings. All lines that have calls that should go through a route point should have a calling search space that is called Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant and Everyone. Examples of lines that require this calling search space configuration include manager primary and private lines, assistant primary line, and all other user lines. All lines that have calls that should go directly to the manager without having the routing logic applied on them should have a calling search space that is called Managers and Everyone. Examples of lines that require this calling search space configuration include Cisco CTI route point and assistant proxy lines. See Figure 9-4 for an example of the calling search space and partition configuration.

Configuration Tips
• • • • • • •

Create three partitions that are called CTI Route Point, Manager, and Everyone. Create a calling search space that is called CSS-M-E, which contains the partitions Manager and Everyone. Create a calling search space that is called CSS-I-E, which contains the partitions CTI Route Point and Everyone. Configure the manager primary and private directory numbers (DN) in the partition that is called Manager. Configure all assistants lines and other users lines in the partition that is called Everyone. Configure the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant route point in the partition that is called CTI Route Point. Configure the MWI On/Off numbers with a calling search space CSS-M-E.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant CTI Route Point
You can have only one Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant CTI route point for each server. The directory numbers of CTI route points must match the primary and private directory numbers of the manager; otherwise, the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service routes calls inappropriately. Cisco recommends the use of wild cards to satisfy this condition. When you add directory number ranges for the CTI route point, the caller search space must not contain the Manager partition because Cisco Unified Communications Manager always matches on the most specific match regardless of partition order; for example, the manager line is 1000, and the directory number range that is added to the route point is 1xxx. If a caller search space includes the Manager partition, even when the CTI Route Point partition is at the top, the more specific match applies for the manager directory number, and the call does not get routed by Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Assistant but gets sent directly to the manager extension. For Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant to route the call when using directory number ranges on the route point, the caller search space must include the CTI Route Point partition but not the Manager partition.
Configuration Tips
• •

Create a CTI route point that is called Assistant_RP. Configure the directory numbers of the route point to match the primary and private directory numbers of the managers (for example, for managers whose primary directory numbers are 1000-1999, create a route point DN as 1xxx for line 1; for managers whose primary directory numbers are 2000-2999, create a route point DN as 2xxx for line 2). Configure the directory numbers in the CTI Route Point partition with a calling search space of CSS-M-E. Configure Call Forward No Answer with Destination Internal/External as Route Point DN (for example, CFNA as 1xxx for the Route Point DN 1xxx) with a calling search space of CSS-M-E. Call Forward No Answer forwards the call to the manager if the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service is not available.

Setting the Service Parameters for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant
Service parameters for the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service comprise two categories: general and clusterwide. Specify clusterwide parameters once for all Cisco IP Manager Assistant services. Specify general parameters for each Cisco IP Manager Assistant service that is installed. Set the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service parameters by using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to access the service parameters (System > Service Parameters).

The administrator must configure a CAPF profile (one for each Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant node) by choosing User Management > Application User CAPF Profile. From the Application User drop-down list box that is on the Application User CAPF Profile Configuration window, the administrator chooses IPMASecureSysUser. For more information about configuring security for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant, see the information on the CTIManager Connection Security Flag and the CAPF Profile Instance Id for Secure Connection to CTIManager service parameters in the “Setting the Service Parameters for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant” section on page 9-22. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide provides detailed security configuration procedures for CTI applications.

Starting the Cisco IP Manager Assistant Service
The Cisco IP Manager Assistant service runs as an application on Cisco Tomcat. To start or stop the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service, use the Serviceability Control Center Feature Services window.

Cisco Unified IP Phone Service Configuration
Add the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service as a new Cisco Unified IP Phone Service. Configure a name, description, and the URL for the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service. The name and description that you enter should be in the local language because it displays on the manager Cisco Unified IP Phone. For more information, see IP Phone Services Configuration in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide. Provide a URL by using the format http://<server-ipaddress>:8080/ma/servlet/MAService?cmd=doPhoneService&Name=#DEVICENAM E# For example http://123.45.67.89:8080/ma/servlet/MAService?cmd=doPhoneService&Name=#DEVICENAME#
Configuration Tips

To provide redundancy for the Cisco Unified IP Phone Service, create a Cisco Unified IP Phone Service that uses the host name rather than the IP address. The host name in DNS should resolve to both Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant primary and backup IP addresses. The phone functionality for softkeys and filtering, as well as the phone service, will fail over automatically in the case of a failover.

Manager and Assistant Phone Configuration
You must configure devices for each manager and assistant. Before you begin, complete the following tasks, depending on the phone type.
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940/41, 7960/ 61, and 7970/71 (SCCP and SIP)

Chapter 9 Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant With Proxy Line Support Configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant with Proxy Line Support

A proxy line specifies a phone line that appears on the assistant Cisco Unified IP Phone. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant uses proxy lines to manage calls that are intended for a manager; for example, manager1. If the call-routing software determines that the call should be presented to the assistant because manager1 cannot accept the call, the call routes to the proxy line that is configured for manager1 on the assistant Cisco Unified IP Phone. You can manually configure a line on the assistant phone to serve as the proxy line, or you can use automatic configuration to generate a DN and to add the line to the assistant phone. For information about configuring shared and intercom lines for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant with shared line mode, see the “Configuring Shared and Incoming Intercom Lines for the Assistant” section on page 10-24. When you display Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant information for the assistant, the system generates DNs on the basis of Cisco IP Manager Assistant service parameter entries in the Proxy Directory Number Range and Proxy Directory Prefix sections. For more information about these service parameters, see the “Setting the Service Parameters for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant” section on page 9-22. Perform the following procedure to configure the proxy and incoming intercom line appearances for an assistant. To configure a new user, see the “Configuring an End User” section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.

*82 specifies exclude hold. the user can park the call by transferring the parkee party to the park code that the system administrator configures and assigns to the user. the user can park the call by transferring the parkee party to the user-selected park code. by using the DTMF transfer feature. depending on the mobile phone model. The user can park the call and pick up the parked call with only their code. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide OL-15410-01 13-13 . Additional Information See the “Related Topics” section on page 13-49. except that a preconfigured parking code replaces the transfer number. the parkee party receives the MOH or tone on hold. the Directed Call Park feature intercepts the park code and verifies whether the park code is available. The user can subsequently retrieve the call with the code or have someone else retrieve the call with the code. After the transfer completes. If necessary. Refer to the user guide for the applicable Cisco Unified IP Phone model for details of the settings that end users can configure to customize their time-of-day access settings by using the Cisco Unified CM User Options windows. 2. The dialing sequence resembles the DTMF transfer sequence.Chapter 13 Cisco Unified Mobility Introducing Cisco Unified Mobility Refer to the “Use Case Scenarios for Time-of-Day Access” section on page 13-16 for the use case scenarios that Cisco Unified Communications Manager supports with this feature. 4. If so. a user parks a call and inputs a unique mobility user park code. by using the DTMF transfer feature. dial this digit sequence: 12345#*84#3215#*84#. the parker party receives the ringback tone. and the secondary call terminates to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager generic device that associates with the selected park code. 3. Using Directed Call Park from the mobile phone. Directed Call Park via DTMF A user can park an existing call by using DTMF digits. they may want to pick the call up on a Cisco Unified IP Phone in a conference room or desk where the DN is not visible. The generic device automatically answers and place the parker party on hold with music on hold (MOH) or tone on hold. Dial *82 (to put the call on enterprise hold). *84 specifies transfer. This feature proves useful for certain vertical markets that require different departments or users to pick up calls. Cisco Unified Communications Manager puts the parkee party on hold and provides dial tone to the parker party. After the call connects. This feature allows the mobile phone user to park a call by transferring the parkee party to a user-selected park code. and the call park code specifies 3215. Make a new call to the enterprise with feature DID. If the dialed park code is valid and available. The last *84 completes the transfer of the parkee to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager generic device that associates with the selected park code. Example of Directed Call Park via DTMF—Parking the Call In the following example. the digit analysis engine verifies whether the dialed park code digits are valid. the pin specifies 12345. The following actions take place from the mobile phone: 1. and the parkee gets parked on this selected park code and waits for retrieval. When the mobile phone user is on an active call. put the mobile phone call on Hold. just like the Call Transfer feature. When a user is in the enterprise and picks up a call on their mobile phone. After Cisco Unified Communications Manager receives the dialed park code digit. When the mobile phone user is on an active call.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager plays reorder tone to the parker party. choose the Device > Remote Destination menu option. the user can go off hook on another mobile phone. press PIN#1#223215 to retrieve the parked call. SIP URI Dialing This feature supports Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Universal Resource Identifier (URI) as an additional type of remote destination for Cisco Unified Mobility. When the DN is called. If a shared line is configured for the phone line of the parker.Chapter 13 Introducing Cisco Unified Mobility Cisco Unified Mobility If another user is already using the user-selected park code.

Directed Call Park feature logic in Cisco Unified Communications Manager rejects that selected park code and plays busy tone to the parker party. This feature only allows routing that is based only on the domain name. or DTMF transfer and conferencing. the non-retrieved call reverts to this number. Cisco Unified Communications Manager extends the call to a SIP trunk that digit analysis selects with this SIP URI in the To: header. Example of Directed Call Park via DTMF—Retrieving the Parked Call When a user attempts to retrieve the parked call. 3215). Interactive Voice Response (IVR) support. not based on the full SIP URI. all phones that are associated with the shared line will ring. Every Cisco Unified Communications Manager server in the cluster shares the park code and code range. If the user-selected park code is not valid. and the user gets to select another park code. so if the call park reversion number is configured. 2. The following sequence of events takes place: 1. When a remote destination of this type is configured. The user gets to select another park code. and the user must use two-stage dialing to dial a digit string that contains the Directed Call Park retrieval prefix digits (for example. For the Directed Call Park feature.

If the user authorization code does not meet or exceed the level of authorization that is specified to route the dialed number. individuals. individual. For each client (or group.@. For example. the user receives a reorder tone. using existing client account numbers for CMC. users must obtain CMCs and a code. the user enters the appropriate CMC. the user enters 555. you must add a client matter code in the Client Matter Code Configuration window of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.Chapter 15 Introducing Client Matter Codes Client Matter Codes and Forced Authorization Codes Introducing Client Matter Codes To use the Client Matter Codes feature. and you can configure multiple client matter codes. arbitrarily. The CMC writes to the CDR. Tip Introducing Forced Authorization Codes When you enable FAC through route patterns in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. a user may dial 8-214-555-1234 to invoke CMC. users must enter an authorization code to reach the intended recipient of the call. When a user dials a number that is routed through a CMC-enabled route pattern. In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. In this situation. you specify an authorization code. and the system prompts the user for the client code. After you configure CMC. Implementing CMC in this manner provides a means to invoke CMC and allows the existing dial plan to remain intact. If the authorization is accepted. then enable Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide 15-2 OL-15410-01 . which generates reports for accounting and billing. reorder occurs. you can configure various levels of authorization. you can determine which users placed calls. or any business or organization when limiting access to specific classes of calls proves beneficial. for client-related calls. or whether your organization requires a special code structure. groups. such as 555. for general calls that are not related to clients. the system plays a tone that prompts for the authorization code. so you can collect the information by using CDR Analysis and Reporting (CAR). and so on) that you want to track. consider enabling CMC for most or all route patterns in the dial plan. If only a select number of users must enter a CMC. consulting firms. parties. accounting firms. universities. which generates reports for client accounting and billing. make sure that you update your dial plan documents to indicate the CMC-enabled route patterns. and so on that you plan to track through CMC. consider creating a new route pattern specifically for CMC. you must enable CMC for new or existing route patterns. For each user. so you can organize the information by using CDR Analysis and Reporting (CAR). You enable or disable CMC through route patterns. For example. Likewise. Before you implement CMC. when you assign unique authorization codes. for calls that do not relate to clients. which causes the system to prompt users for the client code when the phone number that is entered starts with the number 8. the call occurs. The name of the authorization writes to call detail records (CDRs). for example. if the user enters an invalid code. The Client Matter Codes feature benefits law offices. a tone prompts the user for the client matter code. the call occurs. When a user dials a number that is routed through a FAC-enabled route pattern. users must enter a client matter code to reach certain dialed numbers. You can use FAC for colleges. Then. for example. if the call does not relate to a client. a user dials a phone number. use 8. All calls automatically prompt the users for a CMC. if the call relates to a client matter. When the user enters a valid CMC. and the users do not have to invoke CMC or dial special digits. Determine whether you can assign the codes consecutively. obtain a a list of all clients.

Configure an authorization level of 30 for international calls.Chapter 15 Client Matter Codes and Forced Authorization Codes Interactions and Restrictions FAC for relevant route patterns by selecting the appropriate check box and specifying the minimum authorization level for calls through that route pattern. Calls that are forwarded to a FAC. You must specify authorization levels in the range of 0 to 255.or CMC-enabled route pattern results in reorder. Cisco allows authorization levels to be arbitrary.or CMC-enabled route pattern.or CMC-enabled route pattern fail because no user is present to enter the code. After you update the route patterns in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. To do this. if you are prompted for a code. review the following restrictions: • • After dialing the phone number. For example. such as long distance calls. Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides redundancy. Before you implement CMC and FAC. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide OL-15410-01 15-3 . and then enters the client matter code at the next prompt. You can configure call forwarding. hearing-impaired users should wait 1 or 2 seconds before entering the authorization or client matter code. and call forwarding fails. which handles the normal processes that are in place for Cisco Unified Communications Manager. When a user presses the CFwdALL softkey and enters a number that has FAC or CMC enabled on the route pattern. To implement FAC. To minimize call-processing interruptions. forwarded calls that use these route patterns drop because no code is entered. test the number before you configure call forwarding. you must devise a list of authorization levels and corresponding descriptions to define the levels. the user receives reorder. configure an authorization level of 20 for intrastate long-distance calls in North America. do not configure call forwarding for that number. This limitation applies to call forwarding that is configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration or the Cisco Unified CM User Options pages. Incrementing authorization levels by 10 establishes a structure that provides scalability when you need to add more authorization codes. the user dials a number. You cannot prevent the configuration of call forwarding to a FAC. Advise users of this practice to reduce the number of complaints that result from forwarded calls that do not reach the intended destination. which represent examples or levels that you can configure for your system: • • • Configure an authorization level of 10 for interstate long-distance calls in North America. enters the user-specific authorization code when prompted to do so. but all calls that are forwarded to a FAC. review the following considerations. Tip Interactions and Restrictions You can implement CMC and FAC separately or together. update your dial plan documents to define the FAC-enabled route patterns and configured authorization level. and also assign the class of calls to a specific client. If you implement CMC and FAC together as described in the previous example. Because intrastate calls often cost more than interstate calls. The CMC and FAC features work with all Cisco Unified IP Phones and MGCP-controlled analog gateways. CMC and FAC tones sound the same to the user. dial the intended forwarding number. so you define what the numbers mean for your organization. so the feature tells the user to enter the authorization code after the first tone and enter the CMC after the second tone. you may authorize users to place certain classes of calls. Before you define the levels.
