Additional Unified CCE 10.5(1) Notes

  • Outbound Option SIP Dialer: Requires Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Version 8.5(1) or later. Supports IOS Release 15.2(3)T, and 15.2(4)M1, 15.2(4)M2, 15.1(4)M5. CUBE is allowed between the Gateways and the rest of Unified CCE/ICM solution only when you implement MediaSense. See the Cisco MediaSense Solution Reference Network Design Guide for full implementation details. For Cisco Finesse feature information, including Outbound Option support, see the Cisco Finesse, Cisco Agent Desktop, and Cisco CTI OS Feature Comparison Guide http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/prod/collateral/voicesw/custcosw/ps5693/ps11324/product_bulletin_c25-695211.html.
  • Unified Communications Manager 10.5(x) is supported with a Unified CCE 10.5(x) Peripheral Gateway (PG) only. Unified CCE 10.5(x) Central Controller supports PGs running at the following versions for backward compatibility during upgrade: 10.0(x), and 9.0(x). For Unified Communications Manager compatibility for these PGs, see the Unified Communications Manager Compatibility Guide.
  • The following general limitations pertain to Unified CCE deployments that use the System Peripheral Gateways (PG): E-Mail Manager Option, Web Collaboration Option (both end-of-life products), as well as Cisco Unified Web and E-Mail Interaction Manager (Unified WIM and EIM) are not supported with deployments that use the System PG. For Unified WIM and EIM documentation, see Cisco Unified Web Interaction Manager and Cisco Unified E-Mail Interaction Manager.


IP Phone Support

The Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Design Guide includes more details, caveats, and feature details associated with each of these specific phone devices.

Tandberg EX EX60, EX90 are supported only in Video Remote Expert (VRE) solutions.
The EX family is not supported with Unified Communications Manager-based Silent Monitor, Cisco Remote Silent Monitoring (RSM), Agent Greeting, or Whisper Announcement.
DXxxx DX650 is supported for voice.  Video is supported only within Video Remote Expert (VRE) solution. DX70 and DX80 are supported with the cmterm-devicepack10.0.1.12007-1.cop.sgn applied to CUCM 10.5. The DXxxx family is not supported with RSM.

Version 7.0(x) is not supported with Agent Greeting and Whisper Announcement.
CIPC does not support Mobile Agents.


The following general limitations pertain to IP phones used with Unified CCE Enterprise deployments:

  • Third-party SIP phones are not supported as contact center agent phones. The SIP standard does not include the necessary messaging for third-party Call Control (3PCC). Unified CCE relies on CTI capabilities on the SIP phones that third-party phones do not have. As an alternative, you may choose to deploy the Mobile Agent solution to enable Unified CCE and Cisco Unified Contact Center Hosted (Unfied CCH) to use any phone as an agent phone. Consult with your Cisco Sales Engineer for more detail on this configuration.
  • IP Communicator is not supported with Cisco Agent Desktop IP Phone Agent.
  • See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Compatibility Guide for SIP and other phone protocol support.

NOTE: Join Across Line (JAL) and Direct Transfer Across Line (DTAL) phone feature use is not supported. Do not use these features in new deployments.


Microsoft System Software Requirements


Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 is supported. Be aware of the following distinction between the editions.

IMPORTANT: Currently only SP1 for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 is supported.

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition

  • Supports up to four processors on one 64-bit server
  • Maximum 32 GB of RAM

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition

  • Supports up to eight processors on one 64-bit server
  • Maximum 2 Terabytes (TB) of RAM

IMPORTANT: Unified ICM/CCE is qualified to work only on a standard packaged installation of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (Standard or Enterprise). Cisco does not support Unified ICM/CCE on a customized Windows image (for example, a corporate image). If you use a customized image of the Windows operating system, the Unified ICM/CCE application can fail.

Microsoft Windows Active Directory

Cisco Unified ICM and Unified CCE support Microsoft Windows Active Directory on Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition

  • CPU: Supports up to four processors on one server
  • RAM: No operating system maximum
  • SP2

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition

  • CPU: No operating system maximum
  • RAM: No operating system maximum
  • SP2


Microsoft Windows and Microsoft SQL Server Localization Support

The following table lists supported localized versions of Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server that you can use with Cisco Unified ICM/Unified Contact Center Enterprise and Hosted system components.

If there is not a corresponding localized SQL Server 2008 (listed in the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 column) for a particular language listed in the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 column, use the English SQL Server 2008 with the applicable setting listed in the SQL Collation Setting column.

Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise and Cisco Packaged Content Center Enterprise both support multilingual versions of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (English Windows Server 2008 with language packs installed). For details about how to set up multilingual versions of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, see the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Installation and Upgrade Guide.

Use English SQL Server 2008 on multilingual versions of the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 environment. Following are two valid examples of supported multilingual environments:

  • English Windows Server 2008 with Japanese Windows language pack installed, and English SQL Server 2008 with Japanese SQL Collation Setting.
  • English Windows Server 2008 with Russian Windows language pack installed, and English SQL Server 2008 with Cyrillic_General SQL Collation Setting.

  • The customer is not required to use Cisco VXI endpoints in a VDI solution. The customer can use any VDI endpoint that supports the specific Citrix or VMware VDI solution versions supported by Cisco. The customer must ensure that bandwidth and any other deployment considerations ensure that the solution can meet the performance and timing requirements of CTI-OS.
