Important Information

A valid Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) certificate is required to provide missed call and voicemail notification services to iPhone users of Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator clients that connect to Cisco Unified Mobility Advantage servers, when the client is not running.

The certificate included with Cisco Unified Mobility Advantage expired on September 2, 2010. Subsequent updated APNS certificates expire annually. To avoid interruption in notification services, you must replace the expired certificate with a new one.

You can also use the procedures in this document to replace the APNS certificate if you accidentally delete it from Cisco Unified Mobility Advantage.
