Cisco Unified Communications Solutions unify voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed and mobile networks enabling easy collaboration every time from any workspace.

Product Overview

The Cisco MCS 7835-H2 Unified Communications Manager Appliance is a high-availability server platform for Cisco Unified Communications Manager and an integral part of a complete, scalable architecture for a new generation of high-quality unified communications solutions for enterprise data networks. Delivering the high performance and availability that today's enterprise networks demand, this solution is easy to deploy and highly cost-effective. The server appliance is preinstalled with an operating system and Cisco Unified Communications Manager - it is fully operational upon startup, requiring entry of just a few configuration variables such as IP address and domain. At just 2 rack units (2RU) high, the Cisco MCS 7835-H2 offers tremendous power in a low-profile chassis that minimizes rack space. It supports up to 2500 Cisco Unified IP Phones per appliance and up to 10,000 Cisco Unified IP Phones in a cluster configuration.

Key Features and Benefits

Performance

The Cisco MCS 7835-H2 Unified Communications Manager Appliance is a robust, highly available server platform designed to support today's unified communications applications; it uses a Smart Array P400 Controller with a 256-MB cache to provide onboard Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) support. The appliance occupies only 2RU of space while providing the features most requested in a high-availability server platform.

High Availability

High availability on the Cisco MCS 7835-H2 is achieved through the following mechanisms:

• Redundant hot-swap power supplies

• Redundant hot-swap fans

• Hot-swap Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drives configured using RAID 1

Serviceability

System Health LEDs

The Cisco MCS 7835-H2 provides system health LEDs and unit identification lights on the front and back of the server to ease identification of system problems. When an internal component fails, this indication is made on an internal component LED (amber) and on the front panel of the appliance. If the item is serviceable without removing the server hood, as in the case of a redundant power supply, the external health LED illuminates. If the item is serviceable by removing the hood, as in the case of a fan failure, the internal health LED illuminates. If no failures have occurred, the system health LEDs are green. If a failure has occurred but a redundant feature has enabled the system to continue running, the LED is amber. If the failure is critical and has caused the system to shut down, the LED is red.

Integrated Lights Out 2

The Integrated Lights Out 2 (iLO2) standard is included on this server. Combining essential management functions and diagnostics with basic lights-out functions as standard components of the server, iLO2 is available at no charge. The iLO2 standard feature offers maximum security, availability, and control over business-critical servers without the need to visit the systems physically.

• The iLO2 standard feature provides fundamental server control and monitoring by integrating essential lights-out technology directly into the Cisco MCS 7835-H2 Unified Communications Manager Appliance architecture.

• Essential lights-out features include remote power control, text-based console, logs, status, and alert forwarding.

• The easy-to-use, dedicated lights-out LAN port is accessible through a browser interface.

• The iLO2 standard feature saves a valuable peripheral-component-interconnect (PCI) slot for additional functions and reduces installation and setup time.

• The iLO2 standard feature eliminates the need for an external power adapter or any other internal or external cables.

• The iLO2 standard feature provides a rich suite of security features, including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

• The iLO2 standard feature provides a scalable solution by allowing group administration of iLO processors.

DAT Tape Support

The Cisco MCS 7835-H2 Appliance can support an optional 36- or 72-GB universal-serial-bus (USB) external Digital Audio Tape (DAT) drive or an optional USB rack-mount DAT drive. This tape drive connects through one of the 4 USB 2.0 ports provided by the Cisco MCS 7835-H2 Appliance.
