I'm reading the articles about cisco voip system. But have difficult in understanding the difference between CTI route point and CIT port. Could someone clear it a little bit? Thanks.

Hi qqefter,

I read that, but still confused. Better explanation? Thanks.
k, ill try:
A "CTI route point" picks the device that can recieve calls and is  REDIRECTED due to the application

A CTI port is used to allow CCM (usually) to communicate to third-party software applications. For example a third party softphone application

first you would configure the CTI port then you would add the CTI route point as like a defintion
