Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0 PBX Configuration Note

Posted by Mino on November 23, 2008

This document describes the simultaneous ring feature interoperability and documents the steps and configurations necessary for Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Cisco UCM) Release 7.0(1) to interoperate with Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) 2007 Enterprise Edition. It aims to provide a good understanding of what works and what does not work in terms of the feature interaction between a Cisco UCM device and Microsoft Office Communicator. It also provides guidance to deployment participants regarding the limitations, expected behaviors, and known issues. Please note that this document does not address performance and scalability, which are part of broader criteria for a deployment-ready solution.

 

· The simultaneous ring feature allows a Cisco UCM endpoint (IP Phone, IP Communicator, etc…) to simultaneously ring its remote destination(s) when a call is placed to that endpoint. The remote destination(s) could be Microsoft Office Communicator and/or any other device(s) including mobile phones, PSTN phones or even local PBX extensions. The remote destination feature uses the Cisco Unified Mobility functionality and can be configured to allow or block the receipt of certain numbers. For the simultaneous ring configuration, Cisco UCM has a Direct SIP connection to Microsoft Mediation Server.
