UCCX 7.x and Call Monitoring/Recording in CUCM 7.x

Unanswered Question
Mar 2nd, 2009

The advantage of the CUCM solution is that (R)SPAN is no longer required.

I have this problem too.

streams directly from the phone and therefore removing the need for a Monitoring component connected

to the SPAN port on the Catalyst switch. A 7940 or above phone is required for desktop monitoring and

the agent workstation running CAD must be connected to the data port on the back of the agent phone.

The IP Communicator (softphone) also supports using desktop monitoring for silent monitoring and
