CUCM/UCCX - How monitoring CTI Ports

Ive looked in to RTMT for this before, and though it has a CTI Port section for UCCX, it doesn't show if there is an active call on the port or not.

I'm not positive, but I don't think there is a way to do this, unless you consider using BLF in CUCM to monitor the off hook state of the ports.  But then, where do you find 300 to 400 lines on phones for monitoring these ports?  Yeah, I don't think that's a great solution.  Perhaps some custom code can accomplish this.  I.e., A computer program which can query CUCM for real time data on the ports.

CUCM/UCCX - How monitoring CTI Ports

Wilson,

This can be accomplished with custom code, we built this for a customer who needed additional metrics (and a real-time view of port usage including call identifcation information per port for their NOC).

If your customer needs only a basic number (i.e: 39 ports in use) then this information is readily available in CUIC with version 9. If however your customer can't wait to upgrade to version 9 or want to do a bit more with the information available let me know; we can work out a solution at an attractive price point.

CUCM/UCCX - How monitoring CTI Ports

CUIC is in UCCX 9x.  You wouldn't even have to upgrade your CUCM from 8.6(2) as UCCX 9.0(2)SU1, which is the latest release as of right now, supports CUCM 8.6(2).

See the compatibility guide for reference on supported versions:

CUCM/UCCX - How monitoring CTI Ports

Do you mean if I think you should purchase more UCCX Premium Agent Seats to get more UCCX Premium IVR Ports?  No, I cannot make that recommendation, because it all depends on the environment.  It would take a consultant to sit down with the business, and review historical reports, and scripts, to determine if 200 IVR ports is enough and they are just being used improperly, of if 200 is not enough, and they do need to purchase more ports.  You also have to consider percent blocking, and cost/benefit, because Premium ports are not free, nor inexpensive.

Correct.  You need to use the calculator to compute the number of IVR ports required to provide the level of service you wish to give your callers.
