Default Device Profile Configuration


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

For example, a user logs on to a Cisco Unified IP Phone 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 7940, for which he does not have a user device profile. In this case, the default device profile for the 7940 gets downloaded to the phone.

A default device profile 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, Join Across Lines and Single Button Barge feature settings, multilevel precedence and preemption (MLPP) information, and IP phone services.

This chapter contains information on the following topics:

Default Device Profile Configuration Settings

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

For example, a user logs on to a Cisco Unified IP Phone 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.

A default device profile comprises the set of attributes (services and/or features) that are associated with a particular device. The default device profile contains attributes such as device type, phone template, user locale, expansion modules, softkey template, Join Across Lines and Single Button Barge feature settings, and MLPP information.

Table 97-1 describes the fields that are available in the Default Device Profile Configuration window. For related procedures, see the "Related Topics" section.

Default Device Profile Information

Description

Enter a description for the default device profile configuration.

User Hold MOH 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 Communications Manager 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 Media Resources > Music On Hold Audio Source.

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 Communications Manager makes this field available only for phone models that support localization.

Note If no user locale is specified, Cisco Unified Communications Manager 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 Communications Manager Locale Installer documentation.

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

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

Privacy

From the drop-down list box, choose On for each phone on which you want privacy. For more configuration information, refer to "Barge and Privacy" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

Single Button Barge/cBarge

From the drop-down list box, choose from the following options:

Off—This device does not allow users to use the Single Button Barge/cBarge feature.

Barge—Choosing this option allows users to press the Single Button Barge shared-line button on the phone to barge into a call using Barge.

cBarge—Choosing this option allows users to press the Single Button cBarge shared-line button on the phone to barge into a call using cBarge.

Default—This device inherits the Single Button Barge/cBarge setting from the service parameter and device pool settings.


Note If the server parameter and device pool settings are different, the device will inherit the setting from the service parameter setting.


For more information, refer to "Barge and Privacy" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

Join Across Lines

From the drop-down list box, choose from the following options:

Off—This device does not allow users to use the Join Across Lines feature.

On—This device allows users to join calls across multiple lines.

Default—This device inherits the Join Across Lines setting from the service parameter and device pool settings.


Note If the server parameter and device pool settings are different, the device will inherit the setting from the service parameter setting.


For more information, refer to "Understanding Directory Numbers" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Always Use Prime Line

From the drop-down list box, choose one of the following options:

Off—When the phone is idle and receives a call on any line, the phone user answers the call from the line on which the call is received.

On—When the phone is idle (off hook) and receives a call on any line, the primary line gets chosen for the call. Calls on other lines continue to ring, and the phone user must select those other lines to answer these calls.

Default—Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the configuration from the Always Use Prime Line service parameter, which supports the Cisco CallManager service.

Always Use Prime Line for Voice Message

From the drop-down list box, choose one of the following options:

On—If the phone is idle, the primary line on the phone becomes the active line for retrieving voice messages when the phone user presses the Messages button on the phone.

Off—If the phone is idle, pressing the Messages button on the phone automatically dials the voice-messaging system from the line that has a voice message. Cisco Unified Communications Manager always selects the first line that has a voice message. If no line has a voice message, the primary line gets used when the phone user presses the Messages button.

Default—Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the configuration from the Always Use Prime Line for Voice Message service parameter, which supports the Cisco CallManager service.

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 "Call Display Restrictions" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

Do Not Disturb

Check this check box to enable Do Not Disturb on the phone.

DND Option

When you enable DND on the phone, this parameter allows you to specify how the DND features handle incoming calls:

Call Reject—This option specifies that no incoming call information gets presented to the user, including no audio or visual notification of the call.

Ringer Off—This option turns off the ringer, but incoming call information gets presented to the device, so that the user can accept the call.

Use Common Phone Profile Setting—This option specifies that the DND Option setting from the Common Phone Profile window will get used for this device.

Note For mobile devices and dual-mode phones, you can only choose the Call Reject option. When you activate DND Call Reject on a mobile device or dual-mode phone, no call information gets presented to the device.

DND Incoming Call Alert

When you enable the DND Ringer Off or Call Reject option, this parameter specifies how a call displays on a phone.

From the drop-down list, choose one of the following options:

None—This option specifies that the DND Incoming Call Alert setting from the Common Phone Profile window will get used for this device.

Disable—This option disables both beep and flash notification of a call but for the DND Ringer Off option, incoming call information still gets displayed. For the DND Call Reject option, no call alerts display and no information gets sent to the device.

Beep Only—For an incoming call, this option causes the phone to play a beep tone only and for the DND Ringer Off option, incoming call information gets displayed. For the DND Call Reject option, no call alerts sound and no information gets sent to the device.

Flash Only—For an incoming call, this option causes the phone to display a flash alert and for the DND Ringer Off option, incoming call information gets displayed. For the DND Call Reject option, no call alerts display and no information gets sent to the device.

Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) Information

MLPP Domain

Choose MLPP domain that is associated with this device from the drop-down list box.

MLPP Indication

If available, this setting specifies whether a device that is 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 default device profile 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 default device profile 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 that is 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 default device profile 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 default device profile 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.
