Ability to restore a backed-up ACL configuration. Generic SIP trunk template: Allows new service providers to be added in CCA without the requirement to import XML template. Allows modification of service providers, including options for voice codec, fax protocol, registration, DTMF, call transfers, and call forwards.
Timer and retry management for SIP trunks: Allows configurations of timers and retries for the SIP user agent.
Toll fraud protection for SIP trunks
Support for additional SIP Trunk providers: Integra, Keyyo and OpenIP Unknown plan type for International calls for ISDN carrier: Allows to map all outgoing calls to unknown numbering type and plan. Editable IP phone URLs: Allows configuring URL information under telephony service. Specific URLs are provisioned on the Cisco IP phone; these URLs point to XML-based web pages formatted with XML tags that the Cisco IP phone understands and uses. Editable SSL VPN port: Provides the option to configure SSL VPN port during SSL creation on UC500. Ability to accept DHCP-assigned WAN IP address for SSL VPN: Allows creation of SSL VPN using DHCP WAN IP and also warns the user of any changes to the WAN IP that will cause SSL VPN to not work. Call Ring features:
No call-waiting beep: Disables call waiting beep sound
Call-waiting ring: Allows to select a ringing sound for call waiting
Distinctive Ring: Distinctive ring is used to identify internal and external incoming calls. An internal call is defined as a call originating from any Cisco Unified IP phone that is registered in Cisco Unified CME or is routed through the local FXS port.
Missed calls: To report missed calls to directory numbers on an IP phone.
Silent Ring: Audible ring and call-waiting beep are suppressed for incoming calls. The only visible cue is a flashing icon in the phone display.
Feature Ring: Differentiates incoming calls on a special line from incoming calls on other lines on the phone. The feature-ring cadence is a triple pulse, as opposed to a single pulse for normal internal calls and a double pulse for normal external calls.
Beep with no ring: The line ringer is suppressed on incoming call, but the handset light still flashes. Call waiting beeps are allowed during active calls.
Cisco Configuration Assistant 3.2 is backward compatible with previous Cisco Configuration Assistant and Cisco UC500 software pack releases.
In summary, Cisco Configuration Assistant 3.2 delivers many quality improvements and a number of new features. The Cisco Configuration Assistant team will continue to develop features and capabilities as we learn more about our customers' needs.
