Course acronym vx.x—#-9

The ICM solution meets carrier-class quality standards - which are significantly more stringent than traditional data-level reliability - through distributed fault tolerance of all system components. Cisco knows that your contact center operation is mission-critical to your business. The distributed fault tolerance of all ICM software products -- from the network all the way to the agent’s desktop -- was designed to ensure continuous transaction processing. Both sides of a duplexed pair of machines operate on the same data simultaneously − ensuring that if one goes down the other keeps processing. If the problem cannot automatically be repaired, the system proactively issues a service alert to our Technical Support Center.

Through a combination of multi-channel contact management, intelligent routing, and networkto-desktop computer telephony integration (CTI), the Cisco IPCC Enterprise Edition segments customers, monitors resource availability, and delivers each contact to the most appropriate resource anywhere in the enterprise. The software profiles each customer using contact-related data such as dialed number and calling line ID, caller-entered digits, data submitted on a Web form, or information obtained from a customer profile database lookup. At the same time, the system knows which resources are available to meet the customer's needs based on real-time conditions (agent skills and availability, interactive voice response [IVR] status, queue lengths, and so on) continuously gathered from various contact center components.

Cisco Agent Desktop Administration provides administrators the ability to define and configure agents' desktops and workflow from a centralized location. Administrators can choose which agent states are visible on the agent's toolbar, define unique icons for agents and knowledge worker toolbar buttons, add reason codes for wrap-up and logging out, and customize the look and feel of agent desktops. It also allows for flexibility in how Cisco Agent Desktop is configured to meet various operational needs and maintain overall workflow automation efficiently and cost effectively. From the administrator's desktop, administrators can set the agent desktop to automatically transition agents into the next ACD state or enable the agent desktop to automatically answer the phone for agent—reducing ring time and increasing agent efficiency. Keystroke macros enable administrators to easily set up or change applications without requiring software coding. In addition, simplified administration for high-end functions (for example, screen pop, work automation during calls, post-call work automation, and workflow groups) is provided. .

The Cisco IP Contact Center Remote Agent Option provides the capability to use remote agents when staffing contact centers. The strength of the remote agent solution is its ability to provide an encrypted, secure, IT-managed connection over broadband to the home. The agents have complete access to all the contact center applications and bypass toll charges with VoIP. Managers are still able to fully monitor remote agents and provide e-learning programs to train them. Remote agents allow contact centers in need of skilled labor to hire without regard for geographical location. For instance, using nurses in a healthcare contact center is difficult because of the scarcity of such candidates. A remote agent solution allows a company to utilize such a person anywhere as long as they have a broadband connection. Access to a larger, distributed labor pool also leads to quicker staffing.

Course acronym vx.x—#-38

The Cisco Customer Voice Portal (CVP) is a web-based platform that provides carrier-class interactive voice response (IVR) and IP switching services on Voice over IP (VoIP) networks. The CVP feature set includes: IP-based call switching: CVP can transfer calls over an IP network while maintaining call control for call treatment or subsequent transfers over the IP network. IP-based take back and transfer (TNT): CVP can take back a transferred call for further IVR treatment or transfer it back to the PSTN. IP-based IVR services: CVP can perform the classic prompt-and-collect functions such as, "Press 1 for sales, 2 for service," and so forth. IP-based queuing: Calls can be "parked" on CVP for prompting, music on hold, and so forth, while waiting for a call center agent to become available. Compatibility with other Cisco call routing and VoIP products: Specifically, Hosted IPCC or Intelligent Contact Manager (ICM), Cisco Gatekeeper, Cisco gateways, and Cisco IP Contact Center (IPCC). Compatibility with the public switched telephone network (PSTN): Calls can be moved onto an IP-based network for CVP treatment and then moved back out to a PSTN for further call routing to a call center. Carrier-class platform: CVP's reliability, redundancy, and scalability enable it to work with service-provider and large enterprise networks. IP-based voice-enabled IVR services: CVP provides for sophisticated self-service applications (including speech-enabled applications), such as banking, brokerage, and airline reservations.

If an agent is available and no further call treatment is required, a Label in the form of the Directory Number of the agent IP Phone will be used as a Route Response •The Carrier will route the call to the CallManager and provide a DNIS value (Directory Number of agent IP Phone). The CallManager will then connect the caller with the agent IP Phone

In this example call flow it is assumed that an agent is available, no further call treatment is necessary and CTI Data is not required at the Agent Desktop. It is typical to see IPCC deployed using Translation Routing. This example is used to show a Device Target as the Label returned to the Routing Client in a Pre Route scenario. Device Targets are equal to the Directory Number of the agents IP Phone. When discussing Post Routing in a later lesson you will notice that the same mechanisms are used when using the Translation Route to VRU and Queue to Skill Group nodes.

In this example, a more typical call flow will be discussed. IPCC allows for an all-in-one solution for queuing and call treatment (CRS Scripts). Using Translation Routes allows for true “cradle to grave” reporting as well as preserving the identity of the call used to deliver CTI Data to the agent desktop.

Lesson 2

IPCC Post Route from CallManager Call Flow
Overview
In this lesson you will learn the IPCC Call Flow using a Post Route from the CallManager.

Objectives
Upon completing this lesson, you will understand the Call Flow using CallManager as the Routing Client This ability includes being able to meet these objectives: Understand the use of the Translation Route to VRU node Understand the use of the Run External Script node Understand the use of the Queue to Skill Group node

IPCC Post Routing Call Flow

IPCC Post Route from CallManager

In this example, the CallManager will be the Routing Client in a Post Route Request. The caller will be provided call treatment and the call will be queued in the event that no agents are available. •The call will be sent to the IPIVR for termination and prompting the caller for digits (CED) •If then there are no agents available, the call will remain on the IPIVR for queuing until an agent becomes available

© 2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

Course acronym vx.x—#-2

Cisco best practice indicates that Post Routing from the IPIVR is only used in special cases. Post Routing indicates that the CallManager is the Routing Client. In a typical Post Routing Call Flow, the ICM script will begin using the Translation Route to VRU node. The Translation Route to VRU node provides some advantages in that “Cradle to Grave” reporting is implied and the Call will be terminated at the queue point before call treatment is provided (caller entered digits etc.).

Cisco CallManager is the software-based call-processing component of the Cisco IP telephony solution, part of Cisco AVVID (Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data). The software extends enterprise telephony features and functions to packet telephony network devices such as IP phones, media processing devices, Voice-over-IP (VoIP) gateways, and multimedia applications. Additional data, voice, and video services such as unified messaging, multimedia conferencing, collaborative contact centers, and interactive multimedia response systems interact with the IP Telephony solution through Cisco CallManager`s open telephony Application Programming Interface (API). Cisco CallManager is installed on the Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS).

Lesson 4

CRS Script Editor
Overview
The Cisco CRS Editor is a visual programming environment for creating, modifying, validating, and debugging telephony and multimedia application scripts in a CRS system.. In IPCC environments the CRS Script Editor is used to create IPIVR scripts. IPCC uses routing scripts to route calls either to agents or IPIVR scripts. Routing scripts are discussed later in this course.

Objectives
Upon completing this lesson, you will be able to describe the CRS Script Editor and its basic functions. This ability includes being able to meet these objectives: Understand the CRS Script Editor. Become familiar with the different work areas of the editor

Open the Customer Response Solutions Editor

Open CRS Editor CRS Script Design Environment

Course acronym vx.x—#-2

Only users with Administrative rights to the machine that the CRS Editor is installed on are able to launch the CRS Editor. Non-administrator users are not able to launch the Editor. This is true for both Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems. After you download and launch the CRS Editor for the first time, you can select the Log on Anonymously button to run the CRS Editor without specifying a Name and Password. However, in Anonymous mode, you cannot save scripts to the Repository. The CRS Server information can be any IP address or hostname of a valid node in the CRS cluster. For a local CRS Editor running in a CRS cluster, this field is automatically pre-filled with the local host IP address.
Note You must supply a CRS Server IP address the first time you launch the CRS Editor so that the CRS Editor can download additional information from the CRS Cluster that it needs to become fully functional. In subsequent launches, the CRS Editor uses the IP address to properly authenticate the user and download updated configuration information. If no IP address is supplied, or if the CRS Editor is unable to connect to the cluster, the CRS Editor starts up with the last known IP address and configuration.

Course acronym vx.x—#-3

The Cisco CRS Editor enables you to develop a wide variety of interactive scripts. The CRS Editor simplifies script development by providing blocks of contact-processing logic in easy-touse Java-based steps. Each step has its own unique capabilities, from simple increment to generating and playing out prompts, obtaining user input, queuing calls, or performing complex database operations. Although the steps are written in Java, you do not need to understand Java programming to build a CRS script. You can assemble a script by dragging step icons from a palette on the left pane of the workspace to the design area on the right pane of the workspace. The CRS Editor supplies the code required to connect the steps; you provide the variable definitions and other parameters. You can validate and debug the completed script directly in the CRS Editor. Palette pane: Use the Palette pane to choose the steps you need to create your script. Design pane: Use the Design pane to create your script. Message pane: Use the Message pane to view messages when you are validating or debugging a script. Variable pane: Use the Variable pane to create, modify, and view variables for your script.

Step number: The first section displays the step number currently selected (step/connection) out of how many steps defined in the script. Step numbers correspond to the order in which they were added to the script and as such does not increment necessarily when you scroll down the list of steps in the script. Line number: The second section displays the line number of the currently selected step or connection out of how many lines are currently displayed in the script. Expanding a step will increase the total number of lines being displayed. Script status: The third section displays the script status. Cluster status: The fourth section displays the cluster status. The text displayed is the name of the cluster to which the Editor is connected or Unknown if the Editor was started without information about a cluster. User name: The fifth section displays information about the logged in user. The text displayed is the name of the user or Anonymous when the user logs into the Editor anonymously. Available memory: The sixth section displays a progress bar with the total available memory for the Editor and the amount of memory currently in use. This is meant as a gauge for the user to identify when the Editor will have an out-of-memory condition because either too many scripts are opened or because the script being edited is too big. The progress bar changes to red when there is about 10 MB of memory left before reaching the out-of-memory condition. Button for freeing memory: The final section is a button that can be used or not to free up memory not yet recollected by the Java VM. You do not need to use this button since the (Java Virtual Memory) JVM automatically frees up memory when it can be freed.

Course acronym vx.x—#-17

Use the Reactive Debugging procedure to debug scripts that depend on external events for their execution. For example, the Cisco CRS script aa.aef depends on an external call event (an incoming call) to trigger its execution. This procedure is also the only way you can debug Voice Response Unit (VRU) scripts, by registering for the script filename. When the call starts, the CRS Engine runs the associated scripts normally until the system reaches the one for which you registered a reactive debugging session. The system starts debugging the script at that point. Use the Non-Reactive Debug procedure to debug scripts that do not require external events for their execution (for example, scripts that derive their steps from the General or Database palettes alone). This procedure is also useful for debugging script segments or subflows.
Note Script debugging will not be covered in this class unless your instructor chooses to demonstrate the procedures required.

Course acronym vx.x—#-2

The Cisco IPIVR provides prompting, collecting, and queuing capability for the IPCC solution. IPIVR does not provide call control because it is behind Cisco CallManager and under the control of the ICM software via the Service Control Interface (SCI). When an agent becomes available, the ICM software instructs the IPIVR to transfer the call to the selected agent phone. The IPIVR then requests Cisco CallManager to transfer the call to the selected agent phone. Each IPIVR server is capable of supporting up to 300 logical IPIVR ports (depending upon the hardware server model). You can deploy multiple IPIVR servers with a single Cisco CallManager cluster under control of IPCC. The IPIVR has no physical telephony trunks or interfaces like a traditional IVR. The telephony trunks are terminated at the voice gateway. Cisco CallManager provides the call processing and switching to set up a G.711 or G.729 Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) stream from the voice gateway to the IPIVR. The IPIVR communicates with Cisco CallManager via the Java Telephony Application Programming Interface (JTAPI), and the IPIVR communicates with the ICM via the Service Control Interface (SCI) with an IVR Peripheral Gateway. A lower-cost licensing option of the IPIVR is called the IP Queue Manager. The IP Queue Manager provides a subset of the IPIVR capability. The database, Java, and HTTP subsystems are not included the IP Queue Manager software license. The IP Queue Manager provides an integrated mechanism for prompting and collecting input from callers and for playing queuing announcements.

Cisco IPIVR automates call handling by autonomously interacting with users. It also processes user commands to facilitate command response features such as access to checking account information or user-directed call routers. The IPIVR also performs “prompt and collect” functions to obtain user data like passwords or account identification. Cisco IPIVR supports Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) access to Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Servers, Oracle, Sybase, and IBM DB2 databases. The IPIVR package supports the IP-QM functionality to participate in Cisco IPCC Solution. In addition, you can also use IPIVR to extract and parse Web-based content and present the data to customers using a telephony or HTTP interface. IPIVR also supports a real-time reporting client, an historical reporting client, and add-on features, such as Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Text-to-Speech (TTS)

The following are the supported subsystems in the CRS engine (when licensed for IPIVR only, you will not see RMCM, in the list). ASR and TTS are optional and only available if a license key enabling this functionality was applied. JTAPI: Manages the connection between Cisco CallManager, CTI Manager and the CRA Engine. ICM: Manages the connection between the application server and Cisco Intelligent Contact Manager (Cisco ICM). The ICM subsystem is only available if Cisco IPIVR is deployed with IPIVR licensing. Database: Handles the connections between the CRA server and the enterprise databases. HTTP: Adds components to the CRA Engine that allow it to respond to HTTP requests. EMail: Adds components to the CRA Engine that allow it to send e-mail Cisco Media: Configures the Cisco Media Termination (CMT) dialog control groups. The CMT groups are used to handle simple DTMF based dialog interactions with the customer. MRCP Automatic Speech Recognition: This subsystem allows a script to respond to voice responses, as well as DTMF input from contacts received. MRCP Text-To-Speech: This subsystem allows a script to play back text or text documents to callers as speech.

Repository

Repository
• DC Directory lives on CallManager – Publishing Directory on CM – User, CTI Port and CTI Route Point Info • Configuration Profile – Information specific to a CRS Server – Different Info on each CRS Server • Repository Profile – Maintains Scripts and Applications – Can be shared with other CRS Servers
© 2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. Course acronym vx.x—#-5

DC Directory
The default DC Directory on the Cisco CallManager server is established as the publishing directory. The Cisco CRS server maintains a replication directory that subscribes to the publishing directory. This implementation ensures that directory data is consistent across the system.

Configuration Profile
The configuration profile is used to hold the CRS engine configuration information that is specific to a single CRS server.

Repository Profile
The repository profile is used to maintain the scripts, as well as the created applications. In addition, the repository profile can be shared between multiple CRS servers; thus allowing scripts and configured applications to be maintained in a central location and updated at the same time for all servers. The repository keeps one backup version of each script for recovery purposes. The application designer can revert to the previous version if necessary. The administrator may configure the location and authentication information for network resources (that are stored in the User Preferences (LDAP) directory), using the CRS Administration pages.

JTAPI Call Control Group

© 2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

Course acronym vx.x—#-16

The JTAPI Call Control Group is defined as a Trunk Group in ICM configuration. In Cisco CRS, the CTI port group creation uses a DN assignment logic that begins with the configured starting DN trying to create as many CTI ports as specified in the CTI port group configuration. It first checks with Cisco CallManager to verify if this DN is already taken or assigned to an existing device (such as a phone, CTI port, etc.). If not taken, this DN is used to create the first CTI port. The DN assignment logic then moves on to creating the next CTI port (in that group). If the DN is already taken by another pre-existing device, this DN is skipped. The DN assignment logic then moves to the next DN and performs the same verification process again until it finds an available DN. When it finds the available DN, it creates the CTI port with that DN. This continues until all CTI ports in that group are successfully created.
Note The JTAPI Call Control Group area automatically opens in the JTAPI Configuration web page when you first choose the JTAPI menu option from the Subsystems menu when the JTAPI Provider is configured. If the JTAPI Provider is not configured, the JTAPI Provider configuration page displays.

The CRS system uses JTAPI call control groups to pool together a series of CTI ports, which the system uses to serve calls as they arrive at the CRS server. You can create multiple JTAPI call control groups in order to share and limit the resources to be used by specific applications. Here we show CallManager CTI Ports grouped in CRS Administration so they can be used for incoming calls (or connections) by various CRS Script Applications. These groupings prevent a single application from consuming all of the CTI Ports leaving other applications unable to accept connections

The Cisco Media subsystem is a subsystem of the CRS Engine. The Cisco Media subsystem manages the CMT media resource. CMT channels are required for CRS to be able to play or record media. The Cisco Media subsystem uses dialog groups to organize and share resources among applications. A dialog group is a pool of dialog channels in which each channel is used to perform dialog interactions with a caller, during which the caller responds to automated prompts by pressing buttons on a touch-tone phone. To enable your CRS applications to handle simple DTMF-based dialog interactions with customers, you will need to provision the Cisco Media subsystem to configure CMT dialog groups.

Course acronym vx.x—#-24

Many applications make use of pre-recorded prompts, stored as .wav files, which are played back to callers in order to provide information and elicit caller response. Several system-level prompt files are loaded during Cisco CRS installation. However, any file you create needs to be made available to the CRS Engine before a CRS application can use them. This is done through the CRS cluster’s Repository datastore, where the prompt, grammar, and document files are created, stored, and updated. The CRS Server's local disk prompt files are synchronized with the central repository during Cisco CRS Engine startup and during run-time when the Repository datastore is modified.

VRU Types
Type 2 A VRU at the customer premises. Translation Route to VRU script nodes can be used to direct the routing client to send the call to the VRU. You can then queue the call and/or run VRU scripts. A VRU controlled by the routing client. Use a Send to VRU script node to direct the routing client to send a call to the VRU. You can then queue the call and/or run VRU scripts. Use this type (rather than Type 7) when the routing client can automatically take back the call from the VRU when the ICM software returns a destination. For example, BT network VRUs. The same as Type 6, except that the VRU requires an extra instruction from the ICM before it makes VRU script services available to the call. A VRU that receives the call before a route request is sent to the ICM software. The VRU must be programmed so that you can recognize such a request based on the call qualifiers. You can then assume the call is already at the VRU. You can therefore queue the call and/or run VRU scripts. A VRU controlled by the routing client. Use a Send to VRU script node to direct the routing client to send a call to the VRU. You can then queue the call and run VRU scripts. This type is the same as Type 3 except that the routing client cannot automatically take back the call from the VRU. The ICM software automatically instructs the VRU to release when it when it sends a route response to the routing client. For example, CWC network VRUs. The same as Type 2, except that after a Type 2 VRU receives the call, a subsequent agent selection causes the VRU to deliver the call to the appropriate ACD. With Type 8, the original routing client is asked to deliver the call to the appropriate ACD.

An Agent Desk Setting profile must be created before configuring the CallManager PG. The default settings are adequate for the purposes of this class. Agent Desk Settings provide a profile that specifies parameters such as whether auto-answer is enabled, how long to wait before rerouting a call for Ring No Answer, what DN to use in the rerouting, and whether reason codes are needed for logging out and going not-ready. Each agent must be associated with an agent desk setting profile in the ICM configuration. A single agent desk setting profile can be shared by many agents. Changes made to an agent's desk setting profile while the agent is logged in are not activated until the agent logs out and logs in again. More information can be found using Help.

IPCC systems require that a device target be configured for each IP telephone that may be used by an agent. ICM software uses the device target to locate the Label that will route a call to an IPCC agent. The correct format for the configuration parameters of a Cisco IP Phone: /devtype ciscophone /dn XXXX (XXXX = Directory Number) An agent is dynamically associated to a device target at the time the agent logs into a peripheral. The agent log-in request will specify the device target, or targets, to be associated with the agent. The association between the agent and the device target lasts until the agent logs out of the peripheral. In this example you will define two labels for each Device Target. Translation Routing will be used, therefore two routing clients. Create labels for both the CallManager and the IPIVR.

Install Cisco JTAPI Plugin
In Cisco JTAPI, software-based media termination is accomplished using CTI ports. CTI Ports may have one or more lines (dialable numbers) that can be used to originate or receive calls. CTI Ports, however, need a controlling application to provide the source and sync of the media. An application registers its interest in the media termination port with the Cisco CallManager then delivers all the events related to this virtual device to the application. In Cisco JTAPI, CTI Ports are referred to as Cisco Media Terminals. In order to implement a voice response application, for example, the JTAPI application would manage a CTI Route Point. Cisco Java Telephony API (JTAPI) implementation comprises Java classes that reside on all client machines running Cisco JTAPI applications. Installation of the Cisco JTAPI implementation must take place before Cisco JTAPI applications will function correctly. Make sure the Cisco JTAPI classes are installed wherever JTAPI applications will run, whether on Cisco CallManager, on a separate machine (e.g. CallManager PG), or on both. IPCC Uses JTAPI to report agent state to the CallManager PIM, making it essentially the “ACD”.

The Cisco CallManager PG extends the current Cisco ICM solution to perform the tasks of an ACD. The CallManager PG function is actually not a single entity. It is a combination of CTI Server, Call Router and OPC. The CallManager PG architecture creates the abstraction of a virtual ACD. The role of the CallManager PG PIM differs from traditional ACD PIMs. The CallManager PG PIM actually implements the agent state machine. The CallManager PG PIM talks to a telephony device via the CallManager. It requests telephony operations such as make a call, clear call, etc. The CallManager PG PIM is also capable and responsible for agent skill and call service assignments.

The Cisco CTI Server provides the connection to the agent's desktop application. This application allows the agent to perform ACD functions (log in, available, wrap up, etc.) as well as call control functions (answer, hold, transfer, release) from their desktop PC. For the IPCC, a CTI Server is installed in conjunction with a CallManager PG. The CTI Server can be installed on the same machine as the CallManager PG. It is important to note that in the IPCC configuration the DMP (Device Management Protocol) number is the same as the CallManager PG, eg. PG1a CG1a or PG2a CG2a etc. You will be installing the Cisco CTI OS and Cisco CTI OS Desktop application in a later lesson.

The Computer Telephony Integration Object Server (CTIOS) is Cisco’s next generation customer contact integration platform. CTIOS combines a powerful, feature-rich server and an object-oriented software development toolkit to enable rapid development and deployment of complex CTI applications. Together with the Cisco CTI Server Interface, CTIOS Server and the CTIOS Client Interface Library (CIL), create a high performance, scalable, fault-tolerant three-tiered CTI architecture. CTI is the integration of the communications media (that is, phone, e-mail, or Web) with the customer service platform (that is, customer databases, transaction processing systems, or CRM (customer relationship management) software packages). Integrating communications media with the customer service platform helps agents to service customers better and faster in two ways. First, it enables the agent to leverage the information and events provided by the media to direct his workflow. Second, it increases the depth and breadth of customer information presented to the agent when the customer’s contact arrives at the workstation.
