Phone System Basics

Revised May 2009

Table 12-3 Phone System Basics Page 

Field
Description

Phone System Name

Enter a descriptive name for the phone system.

Default TRAP Switch

Check this check box when you want TRAP connections to occur through this phone system.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

Synchronize All User Templates on This Phone System

(Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition only) Click Run to synchronize user templates so that they are all assigned to this phone system.

Send Message Counts

(Cisco Unity Connection 7.1 or later) Check this check box so that Cisco Unity Connection sends the message count and requests to turn on a user MWI each time that a new voice message arrives, even though the MWI may already be on.

Uncheck this check box so that Connection does not send the message count and requests to turn on the MWI when a new voice message arrives, if the MWI already appears to be on.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

Use Same Port for Enabling and Disabling MWIs

Check this check box so that requests to turn off an MWI use the same port that was used to turn it on.

Uncheck this check box so that requests to turn off an MWI are not required to use the same port that was used to turn it on.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

Force All MWIs Off for This Phone System

Check this check box to turn off all MWIs for the phone system. When used before clicking the Synchronize All MWIs on This Phone System button, this check box is useful for resetting incorrect MWIs.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

Synchronize All MWIs on This Phone System

Click Run to synchronize MWIs for all users who are assigned to this phone system.

Enable for Supervised Transfers

Check this check box so that Cisco Unity Connection uses DTMF to detect and reject calls that have been transferred to another extension (by using supervised transfer) and that have been transferred back to Connection. If the call loop is not detected and rejected, Connection records a voice message that contains the prompt to leave a voice message.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

Enable for Forwarded Message Notification Calls (by Using DTMF)

Check this check box so that Cisco Unity Connection uses DTMF to detect and reject new-message notifications that are sent to a device (such as a mobile phone) and that the device forwards back to Connection because the device did not answer. If the call loop is not detected and rejected, the call creates a new voice message for the user and triggers Connection to send a new-message notification call to the device.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

DTMF Tone to Use

Click the fourth-column DTMF touchtone that is used to detect call loops.

Default setting: A.

Guard Time

If call loop detection by using DTMF is enabled, enter the time, in milliseconds, that Cisco Unity Connection plays the DTMF tone for detecting a call loop.

Default setting: 2,500 milliseconds.

Enable for Forwarded Message Notification Calls (by Using Extension)

Check this check box so that Cisco Unity Connection uses the extension to detect and reject new-message notifications that are sent to a device (such as a mobile phone) and that the device forwards back to Connection because the device did not answer. If the call loop is not detected and rejected, the call creates a new voice message for the user and triggers Connection to send a new-message notification call to the device.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

Enable Phone View

Check this check box to enable Phone View for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager phone system.

Default setting: Check box not checked.

CTI Phone Access User Name

The name of the application user that was created in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration and associated with user phones.

CTI Phone Access Password

The password for the application user that is associated with user phones.

Enable Outgoing Calls

When this option is selected, Cisco Unity Connection places outgoing calls (for example, setting MWIs) as needed through the phone system.

Default setting: Option selected.

Disable All Outgoing Calls Immediately

When this option is selected, Cisco Unity Connection does not place any outgoing calls (for example, setting MWIs). This option is useful when the phone system cannot respond to outgoing calls because of maintenance.

Default setting: Option not selected.

Disable All Outgoing Calls Between

When this option is selected, Cisco Unity Connection does not place any outgoing calls (for example, setting MWIs) between the times set in the Beginning Time field and the Ending Time field. This option is useful when the phone system cannot respond to outgoing calls because of scheduled maintenance.

Default setting: Option not selected.

Default setting: Check box checked.

Perform Message Notification

Check this check box so that the port is designated for notifying users of messages. Assign Perform Message Notification to the least busy ports.

Default setting: Check box checked.

Send MWI Requests

(Not used by serial integrations.) Check this check box so that the port is designated for turning MWIs on and off. We recommend that you assign Send MWI Requests to the least busy ports.

Note the following:

This check box is disabled for all ports in the port group if the Enable Message Waiting Indicators check box is not checked on the Port Group Basics page.

The Enable Message Waiting Indicators check box on the Port Group Basics page of the port group must be checked for the voice messaging port to turn MWIs on and off. If the Enable Message Waiting Indicators check box on the Port Group Basics page of the port group is not checked, the voice messaging port does not turn MWIs on or off.

Uncheck this check box so that message waiting indicators (MWIs) are not set by voice messaging ports in the port group. When this check box is not checked, even when voice messaging ports are configured to send MWI requests, MWIs are not set.

Default setting: Check box checked.

Allow TRAP Connections

Check this check box so that users can use the phone as a recording and playback device in Cisco Unity Connection web applications and email clients. Assign Allow TRAP Connections to the least busy ports.

Default setting: Check box checked.

Outgoing Hunt Order

(Cisco Unified CM and PIMG/TIMG integrations only) Enter the order of priority that the port is used for outgoing calls, if applicable.

When available ports have the same hunt order number, Cisco Unity Connection uses the port that has been idle the longest.

Security Mode

(Cisco Unified CM integrations only) Click the Cisco Unified Communications Manager security mode that you want to use for the voice messaging port.

Default setting: Non-secure.

SCCP (Skinny) Device Name
