Configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager


The procedures in this section address the minimum configuration requirements necessary on Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM):

Create a SIP trunk security profile. This security profile will be used on the SIP trunk between the Unified CM and the Cisco Session Border Controller (SBC).

Create a SIP profile for Binary Floor Control Protocol (BFCP) support. This profile will be associated with the phone devices that use BFCP for presentation sharing, and with the SIP trunk between Unified CM and the SBC.

Create a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunk. The SIP trunk is used for communication between Unified CM and the SBC.

Create route patterns. A route pattern comprises a string of digits (an address) and a set of associated digit manipulations that route calls to a route list or a gateway. Route patterns are used for routing conference numbers to the media bridge resources that support dial-in calls.

The procedures in this section assume that the Unified CM is already active in the network. For minimum software requirements for the Unified CM, see the applicable Release Notes for the Cisco TelePresence Exchange System, at http://www.cisco.com/go/ctx-relnotes.

Additional configuration steps for the Unified CM, can be found at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/tsd_products_support_series_home.html.

Logging into the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Application

Procedure

To log into the Unified CM Administration application, do the following procedure:


Step 1 Access a web browser that is supported by the Unified CM Administration application from any user PC in your network. In the address bar of the web browser, enter the following URL:

https://Unifed_CM-server-name
 
   

where Unified_CM-server-name is the name or IP address of the server.


Note If your network uses DNS services, you can specify the hostname of the server where Unified CM is installed. If your network does not use DNS services, you must specify the IP address of the server.


Step 2 Log in with your assigned administrative privileges.

Step 3 From the Navigation field at the upper right corner of the page, click Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, and then click Go.

The system returns to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration home page.

If using SIP security, enter a different unused port (such as 5275).


Creating a SIP Profile for BFCP

Binary Floor Control Protocol (BFCP) enables SIP endpoints to do presentation sharing. The use of BFCP creates an additional media stream in addition to the existing audio and video streams. This additional stream is used to stream a presentation, such as a PowerPoint presentation from a laptop, into a SIP endpoint.


Note BFCP is only supported on SIP networks. BFCP must be enabled on all SIP trunks, lines, and endpoints for presentation sharing to work. BFCP is not supported if the SIP line or SIP trunk uses MTP, RSVP, TRP or Transcoder.


Procedure

To create a SIP profile for use with endpoints that allow BFCP presentation sharing, do the following procedure:


Step 1 Click Device. Under Device Settings, click SIP Profile.

Step 2 Click Add New at the bottom of the page or click the + sign at the top of the page.


Tip If you already have a SIP profile you want to use for endpoints, locate the profile and modify it according to the rest of this procedure.


Step 3 Enter the settings as indicated in Table 18-2 to configure the SIP profile. Leave default settings for fields not included in Table 18-2.

Step 4 To save your changes, click Save at the bottom of the page.

Step 5 Apply the SIP profile to the endpoint devices. For instructions, see the applicable Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide for your release, available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html.

Creating a SIP Trunk

You must configure a SIP trunk for communication between Unified CM and the SBC.

Procedure

To create a SIP trunk, do the following procedure:


Step 1 Log in to the Unified CM Administration portal as the ccmadministrator user.

Step 2 Choose Device > Trunk and click Add New.

Step 3 At the New Trunk Configuration page, do the following:

a. From the Trunk Type drop-down menu, select SIP Trunk, and then click Next.

The Device Protocol field updates and displays SIP.

b. In the Device Name field, enter a name for the SIP trunk.

c. In the Description field, enter a description for the SIP trunk.

d. Select a Device Pool option other than the Default option.

If there are multiple device pools, contact your system administrator to determine the appropriate device pool selection.

e. Scroll down to the SIP Information section of the window, and enter the SBC ingress IP address in the Destination Address field. The SBC will forward traffic to the Cisco TelePresence Exchange System.

f. From the SIP Trunk Security Profile drop-down menu, select Non Secure SIP Trunk Profile.

g. From the SIP Profile drop-down menu, if you are not using BFCP, select Standard SIP Profile. Otherwise, select the SIP profile that you configured in the "Creating a SIP Trunk Security Profile" section.

h. To create the SIP Trunk, click Save.


Associating the SIP Trunk with Route Patterns

After you define a SIP Trunk on Unified CM, you must associate the SIP Trunk with the appropriate route patterns to the SBC.

You must configure two types of route patterns:

A route pattern for an IVR access number

In this case, the caller knows the Meet-Me phone number but does not know the Meet-Me meeting ID. Therefore, Unified CM forwards the call to the Cisco AS5350XM (IVR resource server) to retrieve and play the IVR files.

A route pattern for the One-Button-to-Push (OBTP) access number

In this case, the caller is able to place OBTP calls because the caller knows both the Meet-Me access number and the Meeting ID.

Procedure

To create route patterns to the SBC, do the following procedure:


Step 1 Log in to the Unified CM Administration portal as the ccmadministrator user.

Step 2 Choose Call Routing > Route/Hunt > Route Pattern.

Step 3 At the Find and List Route Pattern window, click Add New.

The Route Pattern Configuration window is displayed.

Step 4 To create an IVR access number, do the following:

a. In the Route Pattern field, enter the IVR access number.

The format for the IVR number is the access number only as seen in the following example:

18006338631

b. Select the SIP Trunk from the Gateway/Route List drop-down menu that routes to the SBC.

c. Check the Urgent Priority check box.

d. To save the change, click Save.

Step 5 To create an OBTP access number, do the following:

a. Click Add New.

The Route Configuration Window is displayed.

b. In the Route Pattern field, enter the OBTP access number.

The format for the OBTP number is the access number followed by two asterisks followed by a meeting ID wildcard value that is represented by eight Xs as seen in the following example:

18006338631**XXXXXXXX

c. From the Gateway/Route List drop-down menu, select the SIP Trunk.

d. To save your changes, click Save.


Note The Unified CM configuration in your network might require additional configuration of the route pattern to ensure it operates properly within your network. Check with your system administrator for other requirements.



Route pattern configuration fields are shown in Table 18-3.
