Outbound option : connection between Agent and Customer fail

Unanswered Question

Hi every one,

I have built IPCC Enterprise ver 7.2 and CCM 6.0. I already configured Outbound Option in there. when I started a Campaign ( Import Telephone number list), Agent's IPphone and Customer's phone rang. But when the customer answered the call, the call came into hold state. After 6 seconds, the call was end.

I already checked call waiting feature by increasing Busy trigger to 3.

The problem was not resolved.

please give any ideas for me ?

Hi Bobsairam,

I think I already enabled this feature. Because My CallManager is version 6.0, I can't find call waiting feature in Directory Number Setting. I configured busy trigger is 3. Is that ok?

Busy trigger of 3 on the agent phone is fine, you need 2 or more. What mode are you running in, Predictive, Preview, Progressive? Is it an agent based campaign or an IVR Campaign?

are you sure you do not have any Calling Search Space issues? Are the dialer ports in another partition then the agent ones? 7 seconds is the agent reservation timer, looks like the dailer can't transfer the call to the agent.

Hi Riccardo,

Yes. I already checked the Calling Search Space. It is configured in Directory Number Configuration.

Please show me how to debug this.

  • Cisco Employee,

Can you at least for test put all this in the same partition? Does it work or not?

If not do you have any codec difference? If so can you try using G711 all the way?

And so on, you should be able to isolate wherever there are some specific issues for the media to connect.

Hi all,

I already resolved my issue. The cause is in Skill Group configuration. I logined to CTIOS client by an Agent who is in two skill groups(SG). One SG was added to Campaign Manager, the other is not.

Thank you so much everybody.
