CTI Route Point - it is really required

I have a CUCMBE 7.1.2.

I have a number of DN's that I am able to do a forward all to any system handler I wish in Unity Connection. Why then would I need to create a CTI route point? it seems redundant. Can anyone explain?

Thanks,

Heath

You can certainly use a dummy phone and configure a DN to forward to Unity. Some people prefer to create CTI route points because it does not require the creation of a dummy phone. Makes the configuration a little more clean. Also makes record keeping more accurate as when you search for phones, you don't see records that are not actually phones.

Hope this helps.

Re: CTI Route Point - it is really required

A quick follow up. I am able to do that without dummy phones - just by creating a DN with no associated device and then forward all that DN to Unity's system handler....so again, the CTI just seems to be an extra step...

Re: CTI Route Point - it is really required

I think this still goes back to keeping a clean configuration. In this case, this DN shows up in the Unassigned DNs list. Someone unfamiliar with the system who runs this report might think that this DN is unused. Again, not a problem, more of a preference.
