How to Enable CDR & CMR on CUCM

How to Enable CDR & CMR on CUCM

The Call Detail Records (CDR) and Call Measurement Records (CMR,  also referred as “Call Diagnostics Records”) offer details for each phone call passing by the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM). In CUCM CDR CMR records are disabled by default, so that you have to enable them manually.

You can enable CDR and CMR in CUCM by following steps below:

How to Enable Call Detail Record (CDR) on CUCM:

  1. Login to administration page on Publisher CUCM. Click System -> Service Parameters menu.

2. Then select your server which has callmanager service enabled and then select Cisco CallManager (Active)

3. On System section find CDR Enabled Flag Parameter and set to True. If you’d like to see calls with zero duration, find CDR Log Calls with Zero Duration Flag (just below the CDR Enabled Flag)and set to True.

4. Do this for each CUCM Server if you have more than one server that has Callmanager service enabled.

How to Enable Call Measurement (CMR) on CUCM:

  1. On the same Service Parameter menu, go up and click Advanced.

2. Find the Clusterwide Parameters section, and change Call Diagnostics Enabled Parameter from Disabled to which option you wish.  

Note: Since CMR parameter is in Clusterwide Parameters, you don’t need to enable this on each server.

Cisco RJ-21 Pinout

Cisco RJ-21 Pinout

Cisco multi-port voice gateways have one or more ports for analog phones which is called RJ-21. Since the distance between the Cisco voice gateway and the phone distribution frame can be variable, you may need to make a special cable to connect these ports.

You can see the RJ-21 port and pin order used in Cisco multi-port analog voice gateways in the following image:

In the table below, you can find the pin sequence of RJ-21 ports used in Cisco multi-port analog voice gateways:

Cisco 730 Series Headset

Cisco 730 Series Headset

Cisco has also introduced 700 series headsets as well as new Webex series collaboration products at 2019 Partner Summit.

As you may know, Cisco has introduced many products and technologies in the field of unified communications and collaboration, and has entered the phone headset market with its 500 series headsets last year. This year at Partner Summit Cisco introduced the 700 series, which targets mobile workers segment.

Cisco Headset 730 Specifications

The 700 series is a series of headsets aimed primarily traveling mobile workers and 730 is the first model of the series. Especially in crowded environments, the noise canceling mechanisms ensure clear communication for both the headset and the called party. Below you will find detailed features of the Cisco 730 headsets:

  • Connectivity via Bluetooth 5.0, USB-A and 3.5mm
  • Premium Codec Support (SBC, AAC, aptX, aptXHD)
  • Active Background Noise Cancellation with 4 Microphones

For more information about Cisco 730 series headsets, please refer to the datasheet page.

Price

The price of the newly introduced Cisco 730 series headset has not been set yet, but considering that the list price of the 560 series wireless headphones is around $600, my guess is that the list price will be in the range of $800 – $900.

Last Words

With the 730 series headset, Cisco has provided a professional solution for both the consumer market and business purposes. Cisco 730 headset is a very useful product especially for frequent travelers.

Cisco IP DECT Solutions

Cisco IP DECT Solutions

Cisco has introduced IP DECT Solutions, which have been developed to meet the need for wireless telephony. Until now Cisco didn’t have a DECT phone solution in its product family and this situation being complemented by Wi-Fi or 3rd party DECT products.

Cisco IP DECT products operate in the USA and Canada in the frequency band range of 1920 – 1930 MHz and 1880 – 1900 MHz frequency band in other countries. The IP DECT series currently consists of 210 series base station and the 6825 series handheld terminal.

Let’s take a closer look at these products:

Cisco 6825 IP DECT Handset

  • 2 Inches 240 × 320 Pixels 65K Color Display
  • Up to 17 Hours of Talk, 200 Hours of Standby Time
  • 2 Lines Supported
  • Narrow Band (G.726) and Wide Band (G.722) Codec Support
  • Bluetooth and 3.5mm Wired Headset Support
  • Waist Clip
  • Dimensions: 117 mm x 46 mm x 20 mm
  • Weight: 86 gr.

Cisco 210 IP DECT Base Station

  • 30 Handheld Terminal Registration Per Single Base Station
  • 5 Simultaneous Calls With Broadband Codecs and 10 Simultaneous Calls With Narrowband Codecs in Single Base Station
  • Multicell Technology
  • Scalability Up To 254 Base Stations
  • Total 1,000 SIP Device Registrations
  • Total 1,000 Simultaneous Calls with Broadband Codec, 2,000 Simultaneous Calls with Narrow Band Codec
  • G.711 (A-law & mu-law), G.722.2, G.726, G.729 (a & ab) Codec Support
  • PoE Class 2
You Can Use Multiple Cisco 210 Base Stations In Your Network (source cisco.com)
You Can Use Multiple Cisco 210 Base Stations In Your Network (source cisco.com)

In the Multicell concept, there is no central mechanism to control base stations. When deployed, one base station becomes the master station, and the other stations connect to master with the “Chain ID” defined on the base station and start their data synchronization. Yeah, that’s all.

Supported Platforms

Since the IP DECT series is a multiplatform product, it supports almost all PBXs using the standard SIP protocol. Here are Cisco’s officially supported platforms:

  • Asterisk
  • Cisco BroadSoft BroadWorks
  • Cisco BroadCloud
  • Centile
  • Metaswitch

Even looking at this list, you can actually understand Cisco’s strategy in unified communications solutions. 🙂

Last Words

Although Cisco has always put WiFi phones in the foreground, DECT phones -which have a soft belly in the projects- have started to meet the need. As I wrote in my previous article, we will see if Cisco can surpass its competitors in this field with OpEx oriented solutions such as UCaaS and HaaS.
