Switches and Peripherals
A switch/peripheral is a communications interface between a call distributor and call router.
The following screenshot shows the Switches/Peripherals page in the Administration module.
The Switches/Peripherals page displays both Cisco TDM logical interface controllers and Genesys switches.
Switches and peripherals are added automatically to Advisors when you run Contact Center Advisor XML Generator.
The Switches/Peripherals page allows you to make a switch or peripheral active or inactive as far as Advisors is concerned. This setting doesn't have any effect on the switch or peripheral.
Applications and agent groups related to the inactive switches/peripherals will not be used by Contact Center Advisor or Workforce Advisor and (in release 9.0) will not be visible on the Available Applications pane of the Rollups tab, Application Configuration page. You can use this feature to reduce the number of visible available applications and make the pages load faster while configuring or viewing applications in environments that have a large number of base objects and switches.
The page also shows the contact centers related to the switch. An administrator assigns a switch/peripheral to a contact center indirectly. The assignment happens when a user assigns an application to a contact center. If the application belongs to a switch/peripheral, the contact center appears on the Switches/Peripherals page as related to the corresponding switch/peripheral.
