Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (Unified CCE)
Cisco Systems, Inc. delivers Packaged CCE on a pair of core duplexed Unified Computing System (UCS) C260-Series servers, referred to as Side A and Side B. Five Cisco Systems contact center components run on these servers as 17 virtual machines (VMs). These components are summarized below.
Unified CCE is installed as four VMs: two CCE Call Servers (Side A and Side B) and two CCE Data Servers (Side A and Side B).
The CCE Call Server routes calls, hosts the two Peripheral Gateways, and acts as the CTI Object server that interfaces with the agent desktops.
The CCE Data Server functions as the Logger, which is the database server that stores contact center configuration data and historical reporting data for distribution to the data servers. It also functions as the Administration and RealTime Data Server. You can access Configuration Manager from the console of this VM.
Unified CVP is an intelligent voice and video self-service product that enables efficient retrieval of contact center information. It provides prompting, collecting, queuing, and call control. CVP is installed as follows:
- Four Unified CVP Call/VXML servers (two on Side A and two on Side B), which provide the call routing and ACD components.
- One Unified CVP OAMP server on Side A, which provides a web-based operations console for maintaining the Unified CVP cluster.
- One or two optional Unified CVP Reporting servers that collect reporting data from Unified CVP operations and is accessed by Unified Intelligence Center reporting templates.
Unified Communications Manager is an enterprise-class IP communications processing system. In
addition to traditional telephony features, it provides advanced
capabilities, such as mobility, and
full-featured conferencing services.
Unified Communications Manager is installed as three VMs—a Publisher on Side A which stores the read/write database and a Subscriber on both Side A and Side B which register phones and gateways.
Unified Intelligence Center is an advanced reporting platform that provides real-time and historical reporting.
Unified Intelligence Center offers a dashboard-based canvas for
grouping multiple reporting objects together, offering a
comprehensive view of contact center statistics at a glance.
Unified Intelligence Center is installed as two VMs—
a Publisher on Side A and a Subscriber on Side B.
