I want to develop a recepcionist program so an operator can handle all incoming calls, check the status (busy, free, etc) of the internal externals and be able to trasnfer calls.
I already did so on other PBXs of the markets, as Asterisk, that has an AMI interface, so you can intercept events on the PBX, see who is talking, do calls, etc... But I do not known if Cisco Call Manager has a similar programming interface..
Of course, I known that there is a TAPI than can interface with CISCO, but using that TAPI would require me to add all 100 extensions to the TAPI configuration.... I need something at more low level, something that I can use to interact directly with Cisco.
COuld any one give me a hint and forward me to the right point to look for information ? What kind or programming interfaces that Call Manager has ? How would you implement a CTI solution without using a layer as TAPIs ?
All IPT development issues are discussed in the forum mentioned above, be that IP phones service or something else.
You may also want to consider that some versions of CM already have an attendant console that runs on a PC, and some companies like ARC also offers such products.
