Introduction

This page provides configuration information for a Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal (Unified CVP) Post-Routed comprehensive call model using H.323 signaling within a Cisco Unified Communications deployment. The Unified CVP comprehensive call flow model combines the Call Director and the VRU-only call flow models. It provides initial prompt and collect, Unified IP IVR treatment and queuing, and VoIP switching among Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (Unified CCE) and TDM agents.

The intended audience should be able to perform system-level configuration of Cisco Unified Communications components and deployments and be familiar with the Cisco Unified Communications family of products.
TIP: Use Unified CVP Post-Routed Call Flow (Project Features Tested label) as a keyword to search for related test cases in System Test Results for Contact Center.

The configuration information is based primarily on testing performed in the Unified CVP Post-Routed Call Flow test bed (Test Bed 3) during Cisco Unified Communications system releases.

This topic does not contain detailed step-by-step procedures; for detailed information about installing, configuring, and administering Unified CVP, refer to Unified CVP documentation (see Related Documentation).

Design

For information on design considerations and guidelines for deploying Unified CVP 8.x releases, see the Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal (CVP) 8.x Solution Reference Network Design (SRND).

For information on specific deployments and sites where Unified CVP system testing was performed, see Unified CVP Post-Routed Call Flow test bed (Test Bed 3) in Tested Deployments and Site Models.

Topologies

This section provides information about the Unified CVP comprehensive call flow. During Cisco Unified Communications system testing, various Unified CVP system components including Unified CVP Call Server, Unified Intelligent Contact Management Enterprise (Unified ICME) system, H.323 Ingress Gateway and Gatekeeper, Unified CVP VXML Gateway, and CAD and CTI OS server and desktop software were installed and tested in several sites in the Unified CVP Post-Routed call flow test bed.


Component Deployment

The following provides a non-site specific overview of the components deployed in Test Bed 3 that participated in the Unified CVP comprehensive call flow using H.323. Security is implemented using Unified 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance to provide firewall and policy enforcement services and intrusion protection systems. Cisco Security Agent is implemented as core endpoint security on all the servers. Infrastructure components include routers, switches, gateways and gatekeepers.
