Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Genesys SIP Server is a key integration point between the Genesys Customer Experience Platform and Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM). The integration supports several capabilities:
- In-Front Qualification & Parking provides centralized queuing & qualification (basic IVR), before routing calls to an agent. (See the T-Server for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Deployment Guide for details.)
- Advanced Self Service integrates Genesys Voice Platform with advanced VXML, ASR, TTS (and more) to CUCM.
- Manage Agent-related Calls allows agents to utilize CUCM as the underlying telephony platform, while SIP Server manages calls & agent state. This is an effective alternative to the standard JTAPI-based T-Server integration.
- Recording Integration integrates with Genesys Interaction Recording or the Genesys Recording Connector.
You can deploy any combination of these capabilities. For instance, In-Front Qualification & Parking could be deployed in conjunction with the JTAPI-based T-Server. Or a pure SIP deployment could utilize In-Front Qualification & Parking, and SIP-based agent management.
The configuration for Genesys SIP Server, as it relates to the CUCM integration, is largely the same for most of these capabilities.
It contains the following sections:
Note: The instructions on the following pages in this topic assume that both CUCM and SIP Server are fully functional as stand-alone products. The instructions only highlight modifications to the existing configuration to make these products work as an integrated solution.
