Call forwarding

If the BlackBerry MVS administrator enables call forwarding, a BlackBerry MVS user

 

can forward incoming BlackBerry MVS calls to an internal extension or an external

 

phone. This feature is not available if your organization routes call through a SIP

 

gateway.

not support the additional calling party number field. You specify additional numbers

 

in this list for PBX trunks that route calls to BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry MVS

 

Client uses a combination of the caller identification number and the numbers in the

Validation of caller

During normal call setup some wireless networks might alter the number in the calling

the calling party number to be the Caller Identification Number that you have set in

 

the MVS Console. To avoid this, you can permit the BlackBerry MVS Client to ignore

 

the entry in the calling party number field of the INVITE. When you do this, the

 

BlackBerry MVS Client considers the call to be from the PBX and accepts the call. When

 

this feature is enabled, users cannot move calls from Voice over Wi-Fi to Voice over

 

Mobile or move calls from Voice over Mobile to Voice over Wi-Fi.

Console. When the PBX takes too long to initiate an outgoing call, the BlackBerry device

 

will use the no data coverage number to initiate the call. This option is enabled by

 

default, however your organization might not need to use it for several reasons:

 

• Your organization's data calls set up successfully

 

• You do not want to disable No Data Calling across the entire product suite

 

• BlackBerry device-initiated calling charges are not acceptable

 

• You do not want your organization's users to fallback to a no data call

The BlackBerry Mobile Voice System COP file is a phone definition file from Cisco that provides native support for BlackBerry MVS devices in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager environment. The BlackBerry MVS is only supported when the BlackBerry MVS COP file is installed.

Installing the COP file requires a restart of all of the nodes in the cluster. Make sure that you schedule any Cisco Unified Communications Manager changes during a maintenance window.

The following COP files are available for new installs and upgrades:

cmterm-rim_409_8.6v1-sip.cop.sgn, which uses 6 DLUs, permits your organization's users to make both Voice over Wi-Fi and Voice over Mobile calls.

cmterm-rim_410_8.6v1-sip.cop.sgn, which uses 3 DLUs, permits your organization's users to make Voice over Mobile calls only.

To download the COP files, visit the Software Download for BlackBerry Mobile Voice System page.

If you have already configured your organization's users for Voice over Mobile calling only and do not want them to use Voice over Wi-Fi calling, you do not have to upgrade the COP file. Users that use a 3 DLU COP file will register successfully with the PBX and the Voice over Wi-Fi options will not be available to them.

If you have already configured your organization's users for Voice over Mobile calling and you want your users to use Voice over Wi-Fi calling, you must perform the following tasks:

On the Cisco Unified Communications Manager you must install the new cmterm-rim_409_8.6v1-sip.cop.sgn COP file

On the Cisco Unified Communications Manager you must remove the BlackBerry MVS Client instances that are using the old COP file and add the instances back using the new COP file

On the BlackBerry MVS you must configure your organization's users for Voice over Wi-Fi calling
