out of the Hosted UCS environment.
Click Add.
This generates the configuration details of the Forced Central PSTN Breakout.
Repeat this procedure for all providers.
If you were to upgrade to Cisco Hosted UCS 7.1(a), the Administrator deletes existing “Forced” OffNet
configurations.
This occurs when you provision “Forced” OffNet in Cisco Hosted UCS 5.1(b) by replacing the PGW
transaction (used for the “Forced” Central PSTN Breakout feature in the PGW model) with the PGW
transaction required for the “Forced” OffNet feature, and then utilize the USM interface to provision
“Forced” Central PSTN Breakout.
After upgrading to Cisco Hosted UCS 7.1(a), the Administrator must re-provision the previously
configured numbers using the provisioning procedure as described in Forced Central PSTN Breakout.
Forced Authorisation Codes (FAC)
Forced Authorization Codes (FACs) allow administrators to manage call access and accounting. This
feature regulates the types of calls that certain users can place by forcing the user to enter a valid
authorization code before the call completes. Each FAC has three items of data associated with it, and is
associated to a route pattern. Following sections describes how to provision FAC on HUCS 7.1a
deployment.

Provisioning Other Hosted Unified Communications Services Features
Provider Specific Features
FAC Static Configuration
FAC on CUCM is associated with Route Patterns. Hence, route patterns which require FAC need to be
updated on CUCM.
Step 1
Find the Route Patten on CUCM which require FAC. If you want outgoing central break-out PSTN calls
on a location to use FACs, search for the PSTN route pattern for that location in CUCM, for example,
search for 9.01[2-9][02-9]XXXXXXX route pattern which require FAC. You can use CUCM Digit
Analyzer, in case you are not sure of which route pattern is chosen for the dialed number.
Step 2
Check Require Forced Authorization Code check box
Step 3
Set Authorization Level, default 0.
Note
Authorization Level for a route pattern should be lesser than the FAC code authorization level for call
completion using FAC. Otherwise, call routing to dialed number through that Route Pattern would fail.
Add Forced Authorization Codes
To add provision FACs on CUCM via USM, follow the steps below:
Step 1
Navigate to Resources > Authorisation Codes at provider level.
Step 2
Click Add Range.
Step 3
Under Details section, enter the following:
Step 4
Note
•
Range Start—<FACRangeStart>; for example, 1234
•
Name—<FACname>; for example, FACTOPSTN
•
Level—<AuthorisationLevel>; for example, 2
•
Range Size—<CodeRangeSize>; for example, 1
Click Add Range.
Authorization Level for a route pattern should be lesser than the FAC code authorization level for call
completion using FAC. Otherwise, call routing to dialed number through that Route Pattern would fail.
Move FAC to a Location
After adding a FAC, it should be moved to location to which FAC is required.
Procedure:
Step 1
Navigate to Resources > Authorisation Codes at provider level.
Step 2
Click Assign on the FAC which you want to move to a location, under the column Assign/Release.

Location Specific Features
This section describes the steps required to configure location specific features in a Cisco Hosted UCS
7.1(a) environment.
Note
The steps mentioned in this section are optional. If the HUCS 7.1a deployment requires the location
specific features mentioned in this section, then following steps are to be performed based on features
requirement.
The following section lays emphasis to the support for overlay area codes that was initially introduced
in the Cisco Hosted UCS 5.1(b).
Two principle methods are used to provide numbering relief to NPAs nearing exhaustion:
•
NPA Overlay, page 10-7
•
NPA Geographic Split, page 10-8
NPA Overlay
An overlay is an alternative way of adding an area. As the name suggests, the new area code "overlays"
the pre-existing area code, most often serving the identical geographic area. Numbers from this new NPA
are assigned for new growth to all service providers and customers.
In the United States, according to the FCC ruling in the Second Report and Order (R&O) in CC Docket
96-98, the implementation of an NPA overlay for code relief will require a 10-digit dialing within and
between NPAs for local calls to ensure dialing parity among all service providers.
The benefit of an NPA overlay is that customers retain their existing area codes. Only new lines get the
new area code.
An overlay requires all customers, including those with telephone numbers in the pre-existing area code,
to dial area codes for local calls.

Location Specific Features
NPA Geographic Split
Most area codes are added by way of a geographic split. The geographic area covered by an existing area
code is split in two (or three). One of the sections retains the existing area code (usually the area with
the highest customer density to minimize number changes), while others receive new area codes.
The benefit of a geographic split is that an area code remains defined as a geographic area which gives
the customers a fairly good idea about the location of the people they are calling.
The down-side of a geographic split is that many customers must cope with the inconvenience of
changing their area code.
This section describes the required procedure to define an Overlay Area Code in US Locations with a
10-digit local dialing support. Once the code is configured, a user in these locations can make local calls
to a phone in the Overlay Area Code by dialing the “External Prefix” followed by NPA-NXX-XXXX
(where NPA is the configured Overlay Area Code).
Add Overlay Area Codes
Overlay Area Codes are defined in USM as Adjacent Area Codes.
Note
Overlay Area Code in Hosted UCS7.1a is supported only for location with central PSTN breakout.
Location with local PSTN breakout does not support this feature
To add an Overlay Area Code, perform the following steps:
Procedure
Step 1
Choose General Administration > Locations.
Step 2
Select a location for which you want to assign an Overlay Area Code.
Caution
Ensure that you are adding the Overlay Area Code for the correct location.
Step 3
Click Advanced Mgt..
Step 4
Click Adjacent Area Codes.
Step 5
Click Add.
Step 6
For Enter Adjacent Area Code, enter <OverlayAreaCode>, for example 646
Step 7
Click Add.
Repeat this procedure for all required Overlay Area Codes and for all locations.
