Does OCS supports TAPI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

     

    Does the OCS supports TAPI for call control?

    I couldn't find any official references on this issue.

    Is there API to support TAPI?

     

    Any help would be highly appriciated.

  • Hi Adi,

     

    As I am new to OCS and Communicator I am not 100% sure, but I do no believe that a TAPI interface is available from Microsoft.  I have been looking for one myself, and did not find any documentation about it on the Microsoft sites.

     

    During my search I did find the website of a company that writes add-ons for OCS, and they have a free program with small extension for Communicator.  It includes a TAPI interface.   It does correctly interface with our ERP system, but since we have no outside connectivity from OCS to the telephone network, I could not test it thoroughly.

    Please check the licenses on the website, as I do not know if it is really 'free'.

     

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Wim

     

    Thanks for your help. I shall look at the link.

    BTW - Microsoft official call control interface is: CSTA-SIP.

     

    Thank you

  • Hi Adi,

     

    I works with OCS and Seltatel IP-PBX. Seltatel supports RCC via TAPI. I have a CallControlGateway ESTOS to convert TAPI signaling in CSTA-SIP and viceversa. The CallControlGateway works.You can download a free version(45 days)  from ESTOS web site.

    I think that you don't have to  configure ESTOS CCG.

    Hi Tonino,

     

    did you have to add a childdomain (sub-domain) to your AD because of the static routing of the CallControlGateway?
