PRODUCT BULLETIN NO. 2495
Cisco Systems ® is pleased to announce the availability of Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4). Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) is the latest maintenance release on the Cisco CallManager 3.3 feature branch. The primary purpose of this release is to provide resolutions to existing software stipulations in the Cisco CallManager 3.3 feature branch. This maintenance release of Cisco CallManager also introduces new features which are listed below.
For existing Cisco CallManager customers, an upgrade to Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) from an earlier version of Cisco CallManager 3.3 is available from the Cisco CallManager 3.3 Software Download page. Upgrade and Installation CDs can also be ordered.
CISCO CALLMANAGER 3.3(4) OVERVIEW
Some of the new capabilities of this release are:
Forced Authorization Codes/Client Matter Codes: Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) now supports forced authorization codes and client matter codes. The System Administrator can require users dialing certain route patterns to enter a forced authorization code or client matter code. Information regarding the code is entered into the Call Detail Record (CDR) database. Serviceability tools Bulk Admin Tool (BAT) and CDR Analysis and Reporting Tool (CAR) will support this functionality.
Note: Forced Authorization Codes and Client Matter Codes are not supported in Cisco CallManager 4.0. If Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) is deployed with this feature, customers will be unable to retain this feature when upgrading to Cisco CallManager 4.0.
Cisco Web Dialer: Web Dialer is a tool that allows click-to-dial functionality and is now integrated with Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4).
New Phone Support: Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) provides new and updated support for:
Cisco IP Conference Station 7936, Cisco Wireless IP Phone 7920G, and Cisco IP Phone 7970G.
Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) supports Cisco IP Communicator, a Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP)-based desktop application that turns your computer into a full-featured Cisco IP Phone.
Image authentication, which is a security feature, prevents tampering with the firmware load, prior to loading it on the phone. Cisco IP phones 7970G, 7960G, 7940G, 7912G, 7910G, 7905G, and 7902G support image authentication with Cisco CallManager Release 3.3 (4).
Extension Mobility Enhancements: Cisco CallManager 3.3 (4) extends Cisco CallManager Extension Mobility functionality to Cisco IP phones 7905G, 7912G, 7970G, and Cisco IP Communicator.
Dialed Number Analyzer (DNA) Tool Support: The Dialed Number Analyzer tool (DNA) allows customers to test a Cisco CallManager dial plan configuration prior to deploying it or to analyze dial plans after the dial plan is deployed. Use the results to diagnose a dial plan, to identify potential problems, and to tune a dial plan. See the Cisco CallManager Dialed Number Analyzer Guide for more details on this tool. This tool is available as an install plugin with CallManager 3.3 (4).
External Transfer Restriction (sometimes called trunk-to-trunk transfer): The system administrator can enable a service parameter that will block all users in the system from transferring a call from an external number to another external number.
Conferencing Enhancements: Cisco CallManager Administration provides the clusterwide service parameter, Drop Ad hoc Conference When Creator Leaves, so you can drop ad hoc conferences after the conference controller hangs up the phone.
