CUCME-CUE MWI configuration: Two ways to do it

MWI (Message Waiting Indicator)  is a headache for someone for the lack of good concept and lack of knowing the configurations. There are two days to configure MWI with CUE:

1. Traditional H.323 DN concept:

It’s simple, you have to configure two h.323 DN and assign them for MWI like below:

ephone-dn 1
number 1001…. no-reg primary
mwi on
ephone-dn 2
number 1002…. no-reg primary
mwi off

Don’t forget to add those additional dots at the tail of the numbers, number of dots would be just equal to site numbering plan.

2. SIP Method:

That’s new to me I’m loving this method:

mwi-server ipv4: unsolicited
mwi relay
mwi reg-e164
ephone-dn-template  1
mwi sip
ephone-dn  1  octo-line
ephone-dn-template 1

At CUE: Never forget to work on CUE and add the MWI DNs, it’s unique for both of the cases just discussed:

ccn application ciscomwiapplication aa
parameter strMWI_OFF_DN 1002
parameter strMWI_ON_DN 1001

Happy Labbing!!!
