Does CME 4.2 come with an attendant console?

Unanswered Question
Jul 30th, 2010

Our main office is running UCM 6.1, and we are planning on installing CME 4.2 at a remote office.  Our main office has one receptionist using the UCM Attendant Console application (version 6.0(1)) to answer and transfer calls.  We also have a live receptionist at the remote office...Does CME 4.2 come with Attendant Console like UCM 6.1?  If not, does it come with any receptionist/attendant software?  perhaps a watered-down version of Attandant Console?



I have this problem too.

No console, no... typically CMEs are much smaller installs; if you are talking up to 30 or so extensions then a common option is to use a 796x handset with two expansion modules. The expansion modules are then filled with 'monitor' lines (basically busy lamp fields) that display the state of all the other users.

This remote office will have more like 60 - 75 extensions.  Does Cisco sell or recommend any 3rd party attendant applications that interface with CME?  I thought I saw a post about "ARC"?
