MeetMe Conference through PSTN

Hi,

I have a requirement on Meet Me conference where the user from PSTN dials a number which is provided say from the DID pool  and is asked to enter password for authentication.

We have a Cisco Call manager , PSTN Gateway with PRI and unity express module.Is it possible to achieve from this infrastructure or we need to deploy some third party Hardware?

Please advise.

regds,

aman

MeetMe Conference through PSTN

Hi Aman,

No such thing as a silly question my friend

In the example I gave you for Unity/Unity Connection the caller

would say his/her name when trying to enter the MeetMe and at

that point could be accepted or rejected by the conference controller.

That being said, I'm not 100% sure that CUE offers the call holding/screening

options (that Unity/Unity Connection do) that is required for this solution. You

would need to test this out before speaking to the customer.

If the customer is truly looking for a password protected solution you may

be better off going the 3rd party or custom script route.

Re: MeetMe Conference through PSTN

Hi Aman,

Hope all is well buddy!

This functionality is not "built-in" as you have probably

determined There is a nice idea from Barry in this thread

along with a secondary "accept" caller thought that many people

use;

Hi Rob,

I am fine...

thanks for the link.

I have gone through the your inputs in link but here no authentication is happening since Caller is simply being asked to enter the name and is being recorded and played back.  Please correct me if I am missing something.

In Barry's input, is the CUE script readily available so that we can modify it or do we need to compose it and upload it ?

Hi Aman,

You're right that the first solution only asks for a name and

then the conference moderator can choose to accept or reject

the caller

The solution from Barry requires a "custom" script so this isn't

going to be easy. If you google "Cisco cue script meetme" you may

find some hints but no complete scripts.

There is also a 3rd party solution here;

Don't forget meetingplace or WebEx as well.

Hi Rob,

thanks for reply.

Sorry for asking silly question: When MeetMe call is set at time say 7:00PM by me  and another person calls in from PSTN and says his name , at that point I can drop him .Is that correct ? I was trying to get into detail so that I can explain to customer.

thanks a lot.

MeetMe Conference through PSTN

Hi Rob,

One more query:

Can we configure the way as suggested through Call Handler/Accept Caller name  in Unity Express Module or script is the only way to achieve in CUE ?

Is some limitation of configuring call handler in CUE ?

Hi Aman,

From my limited knowledge of CUE and with the research I've done

today, it looks like the scripting may be your only solution within

the CUE context. I wish I could give you an elegant solution here

but I just can't buddy.

Cheers!

Rob
