All licensing for Unified Communications Manager is centralized and held on the Enterprise License Manager. Unified Communications Manager communicates with the Enterprise License Manager to express its licensing requirements. When users, phones, or other services are provisioned in the Unified Communications Manager, license requirements are added and the Unified Communications Manager sends the corresponding license requirements to the Enterprise License Manager. The Enterprise License Manager then compares the Unified Communications Manager license requirements with the available licenses installed and reports back license compliance or non-compliance. Unified Communications Manager licensing types are available as Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing (UWL) or Cisco User Connect Licensing (UCL).
UWL allows organizations to access a wide range of Cisco Collaboration applications and services in a cost-effective, simple package. It includes soft clients, application server software and licensing on a per user basis. Depending on your needs and device of choice, Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing is available in Professional Edition and Standard Edition.
UCL is a user-based license for individual Cisco Unified Communications products. It includes a soft client, application server software licensing, and basic unified communications applications. Depending on your needs and device of choice, UCL is available in Essential, Basic, Enhanced, or Enhanced Plus.
