Cisco® Unified Communications is a comprehensive IP communications system of voice, video, data, and mobility products and applications. It enables more effective, more secure, more personal communications that directly affect both sales and profitability. It brings people together by enabling a new way of communicating-where your business moves with you, security is everywhere, and information is always available...whenever and wherever it is needed. Cisco Unified Communications is part of an integrated solution that includes network infrastructure, security, mobility, network management products, lifecycle services, flexible deployment and outsourced management options, end-user and partner financing packages, and third-party communications applications.
The Cisco MCS 7828-I3 Unified Communications Manager Business Edition is an integral part of a complete, scalable architecture for a new generation of high-quality unified communications solutions that operate on business data networks. A solution that is easy to deploy and highly cost-effective, this powerful platform delivers the high performance and availability that today's business networks demand. The server appliance is preinstalled with an operating system and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 6.0 software. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business edition is fully operational upon startup, requiring entry of just a few configuration variables such as IP address and domain. The server appliance includes the following features and components:
• Intel Dual-Core Xeon 2.13-GHz processor with a 1060-MHz front side bus (FSB) and 2 MB of Layer 2 cache
You can order the appliance using the top-level part number CUCM6-BE. Enter the top-level part number into the Cisco Dynamic Configuration Tool on Cisco.com to view a list of options and associated licenses. You can order the following components separately:
• KEY-CCM-ADMIN-K9= (order a minimum quantity of 2)
• DAT-USB-EXT-72= (optional external USB Digital Audio Tape [DAT] tape drive)
• DAT-USB-RM-72= (optional rack-mount USB DAT tape drive)
• DAT-USB-ADPT= (required if DAT-USB-EXT-72= or DAT-USB-RM-72= are used)
• MOH-USB-AUDIO= (USB music-on-hold adapter)
