Device Profile Default Configuration


Use the device profile default for whenever a user logs on to a phone model for which no user device profile exists. To create a device profile default for each phone model that supports Cisco Extension Mobility, use the Device Profile Default Configuration window. The maximum number of device profile defaults cannot exceed the number of phone models that support Cisco Extension Mobility.

For example, a user logs on to a Cisco Unified IP Phone model 7960, for which there is a user device profile. The user device profile for the user gets downloaded to the phone to which the user logged on. Later, the same user logs on to a Cisco Unified IP Phone model 7940, for which he does not have a user device profile. In this case, the device profile default for the model 7940 gets downloaded to the phone.

A device profile default comprises the set of attributes (services and/or features) that are associated with a particular device. Device profiles include device type, user locale, phone button template, softkey template, multilevel precedence and preemption (MLPP) information, and Cisco Unified IP Phone services.

Use the following topics to configure and update device profile defaults:

The device profile default contains attributes such as device type, phone template, user locale, expansion modules, softkey template, MLPP information, and subscribed Cisco Unified IP Phone services. Perform the following procedure to add a device profile default.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Device > Device Settings > Device Profile Default.

The Device Profile Default Configuration window displays.

Step 2 Click the Add a New User Device Profile link.

Step 3 Configure each field as described in Table 62-1.

Step 4 Click Insert.

Field
Description
Device Profile Default Information

Device Type

This field specifies the device (such as an IP phone) for which a profile gets created.

User Hold Audio Source

To specify the audio source that plays when a user initiates a hold action, click the drop-down arrow and choose an audio source from the list that displays.

If you do not choose an audio source, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the audio source that is defined in the device pool or uses the system default if the device pool does not specify an audio source ID.

Note You define audio sources in the Music On Hold Audio Source Configuration window. For access, choose Service > Music On Hold.

User Locale

From the drop-down list box, choose the locale that is associated with the phone user interface. The user locale identifies a set of detailed information, including language and font, to support users.

Cisco Unified CallManager makes this field available only for phone models that support localization.

Note If no user locale is specified, Cisco Unified CallManager uses the user locale that is associated with the device pool.

Note If the users require information to display (on the phone) in any language other than English, verify that the locale installer is installed before configuring user locale. Refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Locale Installer documentation.

Ignore Presentation Indicators (internal calls only)

Check the Ignore Presentation Indicators (internal calls only) check box to configure call display restrictions and ignore any presentation restriction that is received for internal calls.

Note Use this configuration in combination with the calling line ID presentation and connected line ID presentation configuration at the translation pattern-level. Together, these settings allow you to configure call display restrictions to selectively present or block calling and/or connected line display information for each call. For more information about call display restrictions, refer to the Call Display Restrictions chapter in the Cisco Unified CallManager Features and Services Guide.

Phone Button Template Information

Phone Button Template

Choose the appropriate phone button template. The phone button template determines the configuration of buttons on a phone and identifies which feature (line, speed dial, and so on) is used for each button.

Softkey Template Information

Softkey Template

Choose the appropriate softkey template. The softkey template determines the configuration of the softkeys on Cisco Unified IP Phones. Leave this field blank if the device pool contains the assigned softkey template.

Expansion Module Information

Module 1

Choose the 7914 14-button expansion module or none.

Module 2

Choose the 7914 14-button expansion module or none.

Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) Information

MLPP Domain (e.g., "0000FF")

Enter a hexadecimal value between 0 and FFFFFF for the MLPP domain associated with this device. If you leave this field blank, this device inherits its MLPP domain from the value set for the MLPP Domain Identifier enterprise parameter.

MLPP Indication

If available, this setting specifies whether a device capable of playing precedence tones will use the capability when it places an MLPP precedence call.

From the drop-down list box, choose a setting to assign to devices that use this device profile default from the following options:

Default—This device inherits its MLPP indication setting from its device pool.

Off—This device does not handle nor process indication of an MLPP precedence call.

On—This device does handle and process indication of an MLPP precedence call.

Note Do not configure a device profile default with the following combination of settings: MLPP Indication is set to Off or Default (when default is Off) while MLPP Preemption is set to Forceful.

Note Turning on MLPP Indication (at the enterprise parameter, device pool, or device level) disables normal Ring Setting behavior for the lines on a device, unless MLPP Indication is turned off (overridden) for the device.

MLPP Preemption

If available, this setting specifies whether a device capable of preempting calls in progress will use the capability when it places an MLPP precedence call.

From the drop-down list box, choose a setting to assign to devices that use this device profile default from the following options:

Default—This device inherits its MLPP preemption setting from its device pool.

Disabled—This device does not allow preemption of lower-precedence calls to take place when necessary for completion of higher-precedence calls.

Forceful—This device allows preemption of lower-precedence calls to take place when necessary for completion of higher-precedence calls.

Note Do not configure a device profile default with the following combination of settings: MLPP Indication is set to Off or Default (when default is Off) while MLPP Preemption is set to Forceful.
