The SCC-Advanced client displays a popup alert message when you have new voice messages, showing the number of new messages. You can view all the new and saved voice messages, play them in any order, reply, call back, or send an IM/email message. You can also download and forward voice messages via email.
The SCC-Advanced client allows you to change your greeting manually or to have it change automatically when your availability status changes.
From the VoiceView window, users can:
View the number of messages waiting and the voice message popup notification
View the new and saved voice messages in the UC500 (Cisco UnityExpress - CUE) mailbox
Play, pause, rewind, move, forward, and delete voice messages
View the caller’s name and presence status (if available)
Change the voice message greeting
How does it work?
Figure below describes the interaction between the SCC Advanced Client/Server and the UC platform:
1, 2: The VoiceView window sends and receives HTTP requests/responses to CUE (using Cisco IP Phone Services XML API) to retrieve voice message list, control voice message playback, and manage voice messages.
3: After CUE receives a request for playing voice message, CUE will use an RTP connection to stream voice message to the VoiceView window.
4: SCC presence server sends SIP subscription requests to CUE for new voice message notification on any mailbox that have been assigned to the UCC users.
5: SCC presence server sends voice message notifications via SIP to the advanced client.
Configuration and Setup requirements
These steps are covered during the installation and configuration of the SCC Advanced Client and SCC Server as well as the initial configuration of UC500 via CCA. The Quick Start Guide includes all necessary steps. The steps below are highlighted to help troubleshooting.
Voice View Express (VVE) service must be enabled and configured - use CCA to activate it
Voice mail engine (CUE) must be in online mode - Default in UC500
A “Personal” type of voice mailbox must be created and enabled - use CCA to create/edit it.
A CUE (UC500 Voicemail server) IP address must be entered in the Configuration Manager under "Download Router Info" page. Default for UC500 is 10.1.10.1 and default port is 5060.
A valid mailbox number must be assigned to the SCC user who wants to use the Advanced Client to access the mailbox - use CCA
The local UDP port assigned for SCC Presence Server (default 5095) must not be blocked by firewall.
SCC Advanced Client
Mailbox PIN must be entered if "Allow Login Without PIN" is not enabled for user's mailbox.
A sound device for voice message playback must be available and selected in ordert for VoiceView to work properly.
An audio port range must be entered and not blocked by firewall (default port range 16234-32768)
TCP port 80 must not be blocked by firewall or occupied by other application/server.
Constraints and limitations
In Configuration Manger, a user’s mailbox number can only be assigned from one of the ephone DNs belonging to the user’s controlled ephone.
VoiceView window doesn’t support other mailbox types such as “General delivery” and “Announcement-only” at this time.
The length of Mailbox PIN can be zero (no PIN required) or in the range from 3 to 16 digits.
There’s a limit of 150 messages can be retrieved from user’s mailbox.
Duration of a voice message can’t be retrieved until the message starts playing.
There’s a length limit of ~20 characters on displaying caller’s name.
VoiceView window must use TCP port 80 on the client machine in order to receive HTTP requests sent from CUE. It can’t be changed since CUE always sends the requests to the same port.
Troubleshooting tips for common problems
When VoiceView window displays:
Unable to initialize the media device
Make sure you have a working sound device installed and selected. Go to Edit > Preferences > VoiceView. Select a device from the “Playback Device” lis
Unable to open port 80
If you have a web server running on port 80, you will need to either disable the server or change the server to use a different port.
If you have the Cisco IP Communicator (CIPC) running with “Web Access” setting enabled, you will need to disable the setting by performing the following steps on CME:
Create a new ephone template.
Add the command “service phone webAccess1”
Assign the ephone-template to the ephone with CIPC type.
Reset the ephone.
Restart VoiceView window.
Unable to open RTP session
Make sure the port range entered in the “Audio Port Range” setting in Edit > Preferences > VoiceView is not blocked by firewall.
Try changing the port range to other ports that are available.
There’s no voice mailbox associated with the user
Check if all the servers are up
Make sure the user is assigned with a valid mailbox number. Go to File > My Profile and see if there’s a valid mailbox number in the “Voice Mail” field. If not, use the Configuration Manager on the server to assign one.
Failed to retrieve mailbox server info
Check if all the servers are up.
Use Configuration Manager on the server and go to Setup Router and Servers > Manage Cisco Routers. Make sure the “CUE IP Address” and “CUE Port” fields are entered with correct information for each CME that has CUE installed. Restart the server when done.
Invalid voicemail credential
Check if you enter the right password for user’s mailbox number.
Try changing the user’s mailbox password by going to the CUE GUI.
The mailbox is already in use. For help, contact your system administrator
