CTI Port Numbering

The CTI ports in our IPCCX 3.5 installation have been implemented using 300 numbers from our DDI space. This seems to be an inefficient use of DDI space, as CTI ports are not dialled directly; the CTI Route Point redirects the call to a CTI port.

Is it be possible to renumber the CTI ports using another 'internal' CTI numbering scheme, say, 90XXX? Should the CTI ports be in their own partition and only be referenced in the CSS of the CTI Route Points?

Re: CTI Port Numbering

You are absolutely correct, you do not want waste DID range on your cti ports. You can easily change them or delete and create new ones with another range. Make sure your jtapi subsystem configuration reflects the change.

It is a best practice to assign cti ports into their own partition.

Re: CTI Port Numbering

Thanks for that. When an IPCCX script is running, is it running in the context of the CSS of the CTI port (as opposed to the CSS of the CTI Route Point). If the script needs to redirect a call, say to a voice mail pilot number, then should this number be included in the CSS of the CTI ports?

Yes, the call is being redirected from the cti port to the redirect destination. So, you need to include the partion of desired destinations in the cti port's CSS.

Re: CTI Port Numbering

On a related point, when a call is redirected from a Route Point to a CTI port, is the CSS of the Route Point or the original calling device used? Ideally, I want to place CTI ports in their own partition and only reference them in the CSS of the Route Point.

Re: CTI Port Numbering

I've just tried this in the lab and it appears that the calling devices need access to the partition of the CTI ports (in addition to the Route Point partition), so it does appear that the RP doesn't use its own CSS for redirection to CTI ports. Can this behaviour be changed?

Looks like we're going to have to renumber those CTI ports. :(
