This section describes the components that are required for a Pega Call installation.
Pega Call CTI Link for Amazon Conncet
Pega Call CTI Link for Amazon Connect runs on a Pega Platform application server and provides CTIintegration with Amazon Connect. It provides telephony request processing including call control andagent state management. It also processes CTI events from Amazon Connect, triggering changes such asscreen pops within your Pega Call application. The CTI link uses the Amazon Connect API version 18.104.22.168 toconnect to Amazon Connect.
The CTI link can be implemented in two ways:
- Using embedded UI that takes advantage of the native Amazon Connect widget
- An API-based version that relies on Amazon Connect API and a user interface created on Pega Platform. For new implementations, native Amazon Connect UI is the best practice because it provides tighter and more light-weight integration with the cloud-based service. The deprecated API-based version is supported for legacy implementations.
If you want to transfer the Pega Customer Service interaction context when you transfer calls (for example, if you use the voice-data transfer feature) you must configure three expanded call context (ECC) variables in Cisco Finesse: userOldCallId, userOrigCallId, and userCPMInteractionID.
For information on general hardware and software requirements for Pega Platform, see the Platform Support Guide on the Pega Community.
