Set Up CCX with Calibrated Maps (Northbound Notification Listener)

Follow this procedure to set up sofia to work with calibrated maps when your network uses CCX and either of these CMX versions:

  • 10.6.2 or below.
  • 10.6.3 or higher, but only if you have the CMX Advanced License.


  • If your network uses CMX 10.6.3 or higher, but you do not have the CMX Advanced license and you don't intend to get it, continue to Set Up Controller Polling and SNMP.
  • If you've acquired the CMX Advanced license from Cisco, be sure that you have added it in the CISCO CMX console, as shown below:

    When this is the case, you may use the rest of this procedure.
