Adding Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to the List of IP Phone Services on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Before You Begin
  • Configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager as the call-control device for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
See Integrating Cisco Unified MeetingPlace with Cisco Unified Communications Manager for instructions.
  • For the services to be available, the phones in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster must have network connectivity to this server.


Restrictions
  • Cisco Unified IP Phones do not support SSL.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView is available only to Cisco Unified IP Phones that are registered to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
  • This task is performed in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager pages. Because the pages and menus vary by Cisco Unified Communications Manager release, you may need to see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager online help for more accurate step-by-step instructions than those provided in this procedure. The following procedure refers to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1.


Note: The names for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 4.3, Release 5.1, and Release 6.0 have been changed to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 4.3, Release 5.1, and Release 6.0. The names of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 4.0, Release 4.1, Release 4.2, and Release 5.0 have not changed and remain the same.


Procedure
  1. Go to http://<ccm-server>/ccmadmin/main.asp, where <ccm-server> is the fully qualified domain name or IP address of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.
  2. Log in with your Cisco Unified Communications Manager administrator username and password.
  3. Click Device > Device Settings > Phone Services.
  4. Click Add New in the top left corner.
  5. Configure the fields in the Service Information area.


For This Field Do This

Service Name

Enter a name, for example: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace


This is the name of the service that appears on the Cisco Unified IP Phone and on the menu of available services on user subscription pages.


If you have more than one Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server, name the services appropriately so that users can distinguish among them.

Service Description

Enter a brief description of what the service provides, for example: Integrated rich-media conferencing

ASCII Service Name

Enter a name, for example: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.


You may also enter a brief ASCII version such as CUMP.

Service URL

Enter the URL in the following format, where application-server is the hostname or IP address of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server:


http://application-server/ipphone/MPAPI/ipphone/login?serverhost=application-server


The URL identifies where the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView application is located.

Note: The URL is case sensitive.


Requirements:

  • For this service to be available, the phones in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster must have network connectivity to the Application Server.
  • In an Application Server failover deployment, use the shared hostname or IP address that you configured on the eth0 interface of both Application Servers.
  • If you use the hostname (instead of the IP address) in the URL, then configure your DNS server to resolve the Application Server hostname from the Cisco Unified IP Phone.


6. Click Save.


7. (Optional) Click Add New to add another Cisco Unified MeetingPlace IP Phone service and repeat steps 5 and 6.
