Note Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView is a Cisco Unified Communications Manager feature. However, this module does not describe how to install or configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager for your network. For additional information, see the list of documents in the "Additional References for Configuring Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView" section.

For a list of supported phone models, see the "Hardware Requirements" section of the System Requirements for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/ps5664/ps5669/products_device_support_tables_list.html.


About Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView offers users a convenient way to join meetings, start reservationless meetings, view a list of upcoming meetings, and view meeting details. After joining a meeting, a user can perform in-meeting operations such as locking the meeting, recording the meeting, viewing a list of participants, and muting or ejecting participants.


Note Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView is available only to Cisco Unified IP Phones that are registered to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express does not support Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView and Security

Using Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView might affect the way you secure your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system or network:

Cisco Unified IP Phones do not support SSL.

Once a Cisco Unified IP Phone is subscribed to PhoneView, anyone can use that Cisco Unified IP Phone screen to view the meeting details and invitees of published meetings. To join a meeting through PhoneView, however, you are always prompted for your phone profile PIN (numeric PIN).

Each time a Cisco Unified IP Phone accesses PhoneView, these items are sent as clear text over the network:

Username

PIN or password

Phone number of the Cisco Unified IP Phone

Language Requirements for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView

The requirements in this section apply when Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, or Cisco Unified IP Phones are configured for multiple locales, which are language versions for specific regions.

For each language enabled on Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, the matching locale must be installed on Cisco Unified Communications Manager. See the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer documentation.

For each Cisco Unified IP Phone subscribed to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView, the user locale specified in Cisco Unified Communications Manager must match the language specified in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile.

How to Configure Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView

This section describes how to configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager to enable users to subscribe to and access Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView. Complete these tasks in the order shown.

Adding Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to the List of IP Phone Services on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Defining Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Service Parameters

Adding Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to the List of IP Phone Services on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Before You Begin

Read these sections:

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView and Security

Username and Password Requirements for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView

Language Requirements for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView

Configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager as the call-control device for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.

See the Integrating Cisco Unified MeetingPlace with Cisco Unified Communications Manager module for instructions.

For the services to be available, the phones in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster must have network connectivity to this server.

Restrictions

Cisco Unified IP Phones do not support SSL.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView is available only to Cisco Unified IP Phones that are registered to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

This task is performed in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager pages. Because the pages and menus vary by Cisco Unified Communications Manager release, you might need to see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager online help for more accurate step-by-step instructions than those provided in this task. The following task refers to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.5.

Procedure


Step 1 Go to http://ccm-server/ccmadmin/main.asp, where ccm-server is the fully qualified domain name or IP address of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.

Step 2 Sign in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

Step 3 Select Device > Device Settings > Phone Services.

Step 4 Select Add New.

Step 5 Configure the fields.

For This Field
Do This

Service Name

Enter a name, for example: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace

This is the name of the service that appears on the Cisco Unified IP Phone and on the menu of available services on user subscription pages.

If you have more than one Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server, name the services appropriately so that users can distinguish among them.

Service Description

Enter a brief description of what the service provides, for example: Integrated rich-media conferencing

ASCII Service Name

Enter a name, for example: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace

You can also enter a brief ASCII version such as CUMP.

Service URL

Enter the URL in the following format, where application-server is the hostname or IP address of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server:

http://application-server/ipphone/MPAPI/ipphone/login?serverhost=application-server

The URL identifies where the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView application is located.

Note The URL is case-sensitive.

Requirements:

For this service to be available, the phones in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster must have network connectivity to the Application Server.

In an Application Server Failover deployment, use the shared hostname or IP address that you configured on the eth0 interface of both Application Servers.

If you use the hostname (instead of the IP address) in the URL, configure your DNS server to resolve the Application Server hostname from the Cisco Unified IP Phone.


Step 6 Select Save.

Step 7 (Optional) Select Add New to add another Cisco Unified MeetingPlace IP Phone service and repeat Step 5 and Step 6.


What to Do Next

Proceed to the "Defining Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Service Parameters" section.
