A partition contains a list of route patterns (directory number (DN) and route patterns). Partitions facilitate call routing by dividing the route plan into logical subsets based on organization, location, and call type. For more information about partitions, refer to "Partitions and Calling Search Spaces" in the Cisco CallManager System Guide.

Use the following topics to add or delete route partitions:

Table 12-1 describes the partition configuration settings.

Table 12-1 Partition Configuration Settings 

Field
Description

Partition Name

Enter a name in the Partition Name field. Ensure each partition name is unique to the route plan.

Description

Enter a description in the Description field. The description can comprise up to 50 alphanumeric characters and can contain any combination of spaces, periods (.), hyphens (-), and underscore characters (_). If you do not enter a description, the Cisco CallManager automatically enters a partition name in this field.



Timesaver Use concise and descriptive names for your partitions. The CompanynameLocationCalltype format usually provides a sufficient level of detail and is short enough to enable you to quickly and easily identify a partition. For example, CiscoDallasMetroPT identifies a partition for toll-free, inter- local access and transport area (LATA) calls from the Cisco office in Dallas.



Tip You can enter multiple partitions at the same time by entering the partition name and description, if applicable, in the Partition Name & Description text box. Remember to use one line for each partition entry and separate the partition name and description with a comma.
