In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the Call Routing > Meet-Me Number/Pattern menu path to configure meet-me numbers/patterns.
Meet-Me conferences require an allocation of directory numbers. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration provides the Meet-Me conference directory number range to users, so they can access the feature.
Meet-Me numbers and patterns configuration tips
Make sure that the following prerequisites are met before you configure Meet-Me numbers/patterns:
The following table describes the meet-me number/pattern settings.
Table 1 Meet-Me number and pattern settings
Directory Number or Pattern
Enter a Meet-Me Numbers/pattern or a range of numbers.
To configure a range, the dash must appear within brackets and follow a digit; for example, to configure the range 1000 to 1050, enter 10[0-5]0.
The description can include up to 50 characters in any language, but it cannot include double-quotes ("), percentage sign (%), ampersand (&), or angle brackets (<>).
To use a partition to restrict access to the meet-me/number pattern, choose the desired partition from the drop-down list box.
If you do not want to restrict access to the meet-me number/pattern, choose <None> for the partition. See the Partition setup for more information.
You can configure the number of partitions that display in this drop-down list box by using the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter. If more partitions exist than the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter specifies, the Find button displays next to the drop-down list box. Click the Find button to display the Find and List Partitions window. Find and choose a partition name by using the procedure in the Search for partition.
To set the maximum list box items, choose System > Enterprise Parameters and update the Max List Box Items field under CCMAdmin Parameters.
Make sure that the combination of meet-me number/pattern and partition is unique within the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster.

Choose the minimum Meet-Me conference security level for this meet-me number or pattern from the drop-down list box.
