Redirect Call with Call Manager

Unanswered Question
Apr 9th, 2008


Im using CCM 4.1.3 with unity 4.2.

Actually when someone call us with the prime line, unity take control of this call...the person can enter an extension..

But know we need to make a change on the network.. and our unity server will be down for couple of hour.

Can we use a service from the CCM to answer external call and redistribute the extension??



I have this problem too.

You can use a translation pattern to redirect incoming calls to another extension. This would not allow the caller to enter an extension, but would redirect the call to a DN that you configure.

Hope this helps.

There is not a "handler" in ccm that can handle incoming calls and allow them to choose an extension as you are requesting. CCM offloads those capabilities to another system such as CRS or unity. I would take brandon's advice above and use a translation pattern to redirect them to the internal operator.
