Hoping this is a quick one to answer
With the more recent versions of mobile clients and their ability to directly connect to CUCM9 without a CUMA Server, is a pool of CTI Ports still needed on the CUCM for outbound calls to the remote devices??
Seems the old way was to use CTI Ports but now it might be all SIP based and doesnt need the 1:5 ratio of CTI Ports??
Looking thru Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide, Release 9.0(1) it looks to me like all you need to configure is some Remote Destination Profiles + enable a few settings.
Any guidance in this area appreciated.
