3. Detailed description of CCA v2.2(5) key features and enhancements:
-Combined Paging - Allows paging groups to be members of other paging groups. To access paging group configuration, choose Configure > Telephony > Phone Groups > Paging Groups from the feature bar. -Conference Barge (cBarge) and Privacy - Requires shared octo-line extensions to be in the Conference & cBarge window (Configure > Telephony > Voice Features > Conferencing & cBarge). Shared octal-line extensions are configured on the User Extensions tab in the Voice window (Configure > Telephony > Voice). -Dialable Intercom - allows the user to press a button on the phone and then enter the number for the person they wish to intercom. Configured on the User Extensions tab in the Voice window (Configure > Telephony > Voice). -Whisper Intercom - alows a user to call to a busy extension. When a phone user dials a whisper intercom line, the called phone automatically answers using speakerphone mode, providing a one-way audio path from the caller to the called party, regardless of whether the called party is busy or idle. Configured on the User Extensions tab in the Voice window (Configure > Telephony > Voice). -Enable/Disable Conference Join and Leave Tones - enable or disable tones played when callers join or exit a multi-party conference. To access these settings, choose Configure > Telephony > Voice Features > Conference. Multi-party conferencing must be enabled. -Editable Description Field - edit the description that displays in the top right corner of IP phones (for example, you can edit this setting to display the full DID (direct inward dial) phone number of the phone). In prior releases, CCA always displayed the First and Last Name of the phone user in this area. Configured on the User Extensions tab in the Voice window. -CUE Connectivity Diagnostics. From the CUE Connectivity Diagnostics window (Troubleshoot > CUE Diagnostics > CUE Connectivity Diagnostics), you can check connectivity with the CUE module on the UC 500, generate logs, and perform recovery tasks to place the module into a known state. -PCM Capture Diagnostic. From the PCM Capture window (Troubleshoot > Telephony Diagnostics > PCM Capture), you can perform a PCM capture to troubleshoot audio issues such as poor voice quality, one-way audio, or no audio. -SIP Trunk Registration Diagnostics. The SIP Trunk Registration window (Troubleshoot > Telephony Diagnostics > SIP Trunk Registration) displays SIP registration information and provides diagnostic tools for troubleshooting SIP trunk registration problems. -New default AA script with Drop-through Number Option. The aa_sbcs_v03.aef script is now the default Auto Attendant script. This version of the AA script provides an option for transferring calls to a designated phone number if the caller does not choose an action after the main greeting is played three times. -HLog softkey support for Basic ACD and other hunt groups. Agents can now log in or out of any hunt group on the system (including Basic ACD hunt groups) using the HLog softkey. The HLog softkey is presented on the IDLE screen (press more twice) and when a call to the B-ACD hunt group is ringing. This replaces the use of DND (Do Not Disturb) for this functionality. -Overlay with CO Line Support. You can now configure an Overlay extension on a CO (Central Office) line using CCA. -“Video calls” Option. An Allow video calls option has been added to the User Extensions tab in the Voice window. When this option is checked, Cisco Unified Voice Advantage (CUVA) is enabled on the selected phone. -“Use as Teleworker phone” Option. A Use as Teleworker Phone option has been added to the User Extensions tab. When this option is checked, Media Termination Point (MTP) is configured on the selected phone.
CCA v2.2(5) version is backwards compatible with previous CCA and UC500 software pack releases.
In summary, CCA v2.2(5) delivers many quality improvements and a number of new features. The CCA team will continue to develop features and functionality as we learn more about our customers' needs.
