On the Dial Plan page, you can configure the main business number for the company, the extension length and extension range, and access codes that the user presses to perform certain tasks, such as accessing the operator. Table 22-1 describes the settings on the Dial Plan page. In the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface, these settings display under the General tab. In the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 First Time Setup Wizard, no tabs display on this page.

Description

Business Number

Main Number

Enter the main board or business number. This number cannot be lesser than the value selected for Extension Length. For example, if the Main Number is 24564 and the Extension Length is 8, you have to either change this number or the Extension Length value. The maximum length allowed is 11 digits.

Extensions

Extension Length

Select the value of the extension from the drop-down list. The values are from 4 to 11. The length of Main Number cannot be lesser than the value selected here.

You cannot update this field in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface.

Default Allowed Extensions

This setting displays the default extension number range, which depend on the values set for Main Number and Extension Length. For example, if the Main Number is 236758901 and Extension Length is 4, then the Default Allowed Extension starts with the fourth number last digit of the Main Number, which is 8 in this case. So, the Default Allowed Extensions would be the value 8000-8999.

Additional Allowed Extensions

Enter, if required, additional extension number range. For example, 5000-5999. You can enter more than one range separated by commas.

Voicemail and Auto Attendant Extension

Enter the pilot extension number for voicemail and auto attendant. This number is based on the extension range displayed in Default Allowed Extension or Additional Allowed Extensions, if it is specified.

Dialing Prefixes

Dialing prefixes are the first digits that the user presses on the phone when the user contacts the operator, places a call over the PSTN, and uses some phone features. Ensure that each code is unique.

Operator Dial Code

Enter the number that the user presses on the phone to contact the operator.

Outside Dial Code

Enter the number that the user presses on the phone to place external calls (calls that are placed outside the company that go through PSTN).

Note If you specify the outside dial code as `0', the number will be sent.

Feature Dial Code

Enter the number that the user must press on the phone when the user uses some features, such as call park, call pickup, and Meet-Me conferences.

Advanced Settings

 

Interdigit Timeout

Translation Rules Settings

Translation rules allow Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 to manipulate one extension number to another extension number before routing the call.

The following scenarios show examples of when you would configure translation rules:

To translate the Meet-Me conference number to an extension

To translate a toll-free number, such as an 800 number, to an extension

To translate an extension to a pilot extension in a hunt list

These settings, which are described in Table 22-2, only display in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface.
