Cisco Unified Communications Solutions unify voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed and mobile networks enabling easy collaboration every time from any workspace.
The Cisco MCS 7816-H3 Unified Communications Manager Appliance is an integral part of a complete entry-level architecture for a new generation of high-quality unified communications solutions that operate on enterprise data networks. This powerful platform is easy to deploy and highly cost-effective, and it delivers the high performance and availability that today's enterprise networks demand. The server appliance is preinstalled with an operating system and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager application. Cisco Unified Communications Manager is fully operational upon startup, requiring entry of just a few configuration variables such as IP address and domain.
Key Features and Benefits
The Cisco MCS 7816-H3 is a robust, highly available server platform designed to support today's unified communications applications. It uses a single Intel Celeron D 352, 3.2-GHz processor with a 533-MHz front-side bus (FSB).
Serviceable SATA Disk Drives
The Cisco MCS 7816-H3 is configured with one 160-GB Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) "cold-pluggable" disk drive, which is accessible through openings in the front bezel of the server. If a drive fails, you can schedule server downtime, power down the server, and replace the failed SATA drive by simply removing it (each drive is equipped with a front latch that positively mates the drive to the server) and replacing it with an unconfigured spare drive.
DAT Tape Drive Support
The Cisco MCS 7816-H3 can support a 36/72-GB universal-serial-bus (USB) external Digital Audio Tape (DAT) drive (part number DAT-USB-EXT-72=) or an optional 36 /72-GB USB rack-mount DAT drive (part number DAT-USB-RM-72=). This tape drive connects through one of the USB 2.0 ports provided by the Cisco MCS 7816-H3 server.
