Geographical location information, or geolocation, describes a physical position in the world that may correspond to the past, present, or future location of a person, event, or device.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration allows you to specify a geolocation for every device.
The Request for Comments (RFC) 4119 standard provides the basis for geolocations. Geolocations use the civic location format that specifies the following fields: country, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, PRD, POD, STS, HNO, HNS, LMK, LOC, FLR, NAM, and PC.
In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, geolocations get configured manually.
Do not confuse locations with geolocations. Locations, which you configure by using the Cisco Unified Communications Manager devices for features such as logical partitioning.menu option, allow you to define entities that a centralized call-processing system uses to provide call admission control (CAC). Geolocations, which you configure by using the menu option, allow you to specify geographic locations that you use to associate
Perform the following steps to configure geolocations.
Define a set of geolocations on a new Geolocation Configuration window.
Assign geolocations to device pools, devices, trunks, gateways, or MGCP ports.
Assign geolocations to the default geolocation that the Default Geolocation enterprise parameter specifies.
For devices that do not participate in features that require geolocations, define the geolocation as Unspecified or leave undefined.
