This guide provides an overview of Cisco Unified Mobile Agent (Unified Mobile Agent), Unified Mobile Agent call flow information, configuration tasks, and step-by-step installation instructions for using the Cisco Unified Mobile Agent feature for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (Unified CCE) and Unified Contact Center Hosted (Unified CCH).

For ease of use, the guide separates system configuration instructions and troubleshooting information from task-related instructions for supervisors and agents using Unified Mobile Agent.

Unified Mobile Agent enables an agent using any PSTN phone and a broadband VPN connection (for agent desktop communications) to function just like a Unified CCE agent sitting in a formal call center and using a Cisco IP Phone monitored and controlled by Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) JTAPI.

If you are upgrading to 9.0(1) and are planning to configure a Unified Mobile Agent to use an analog phone or an IP Phone without Cisco Business Ready Teleworker set up, use the Unified Mobile Agent Option. However, if you are planning to configure a Mobile Agent to use the deployment option of IP Phone with Cisco Business Ready Teleworker set up, use Remote Agent.


This document is intended for the administrator responsible for Unified Mobile Agent configuration, and for contact center supervisors and agents using Unified Mobile Agent to handle calls.

This guide refers to product as a whole by their new name. It refers to components and utilities by the names that appear in the user interface.
