My Greeting

Hello my dear reader,

Welcome to my blog, which is dedicated to voice technologies. On its pages we will talk about the limitless world of telephony and network technologies.

We will focus on solutions and technologies in the area of IP-telephony (mostly on Cisco, but I will try to speak about the others too.). These are IP PBX based on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, Cisco contact centers, Cisco Voice Gateways, etc. Also, I will introduce you the news from the world of education: Cisco courses, my own developed training programs, our upcoming events, online learning.

Dropping Conference in CUCME When Initiator Disconnects

Hello all!

This post is a response to a question from a student of my recent CVOICE course. The question was as follows - how to drop a hardware Conference  in CUCME when initiator of the Conference is leaving the session.

The solution is easy. In ephone or ephone-template configuration just add a command conference drop-mode. Its syntax is:

conference drop-mode [creator | local]

Parameter creator means Conference is stopped when initiator leaves it. Parameter local says Conference is stopped when the last internal CUCME's phone disconnects from the session (ie prevents a situation where the conference are used by external subscribers only).

An example of configuration is here:

HQ-1(config)# ephone 1
HQ-1(config-ephone)# conference drop-mode creator


Wish all of you a nice day!
