DN & Dial Plan Management


So you have a new user joining your company - for which you need to provision in your Cisco UC system.

What directory number should you assign to him/her?

Is that managed via a spreadsheet and if so, is that spreadsheet up to date?

Based upon lots of feedback from Variphy's user and partner base, one of the common limitations with CUCM is that it's difficult for an administrator to easily identify that a directory number (such as "10111") is available for assignment, meaning it doesn't yet exist.

Because it doesn't exist in CUCM, this directory number (and any others which don't exist) will simply not appear in any CUCM report or search, leaving the administrator to have to somehow identify the "gaps" to reveal which numbers are available.

Since Directory Number 10111 doesn't appear in the following sample screenshot below, it's available to assign in CUCM?

But, doesn't that seem too manual and cumbersome to identify?

How Variphy Insight's DN Management Simplifes DN Management

  • Quickly search a directory number range such as "1011X" ('X' is a wildcard digit to represent 10110-10119) and identify how many and which directory numbers are available, inactive/unassigned, and/or active as well as shared
  • Find the 1st N count of directory numbers which are available (they'll appear in green)
  • Generate a report in PDF/XLSX for a directory number range identifying the utilization per status and details for each directory number
