Packaged CCE and MRA Configuration
First Published: September 6, 2017
Updated: August 20, 2018
This page provides configuration information for Cisco Packaged Contact Center Enterprise (Packaged CCE) and Mobile and Remote Access (MRA).
Cisco Unified Communications MRA is a core part of the Cisco Collaboration Edge Architecture. It allows endpoints such as Cisco IP Phone 7800 and 8800 Series, Cisco DX Series, and Cisco Jabber to have their registration, call control, provisioning, messaging, and presence services provided by Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) when the endpoint is not within the enterprise network. Cisco Expressway provides secure firewall traversal and lineside support for Unified CM registrations.
The intended audience should be able to perform system-level configuration of Cisco Collaboration components and deployments and be familiar with Cisco Collaboration products.
The configuration information is based primarily on system testing performed in the 11.6(1) Packaged CCE test bed during Cisco Collaboration Systems Release 12.0(1).
For information on design considerations and guidelines for deploying Packaged CCE, see: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/customer-collaboration/packaged-contact-center-enterprise/products-technical-reference-list.html.
