Overview of Installing Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5

Cisco Unified SIP Proxy is a high-performance, highly available Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) server for centralized routing and SIP signaling normalization. Release 8.5 introduces two new hardware platforms on which Cisco Unified SIP Proxy can be installed. You can install Cisco Unified SIP Proxy on the Enhanced Network Module (NME) for the ISR family (3800 series) or on a Service Module for the SRE family (2900 and 3900 series).

You can install Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 as a new customer or you can migrate to Release 8.5 as an existing customer who is moving from Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 1.x to Release 8.5. We do not support upgrading your software from an earlier release of Cisco Unified SIP Proxy. If you have an earlier release of Cisco Unified SIP Proxy and want to move to Release 8.5, you must completely install the new software for Release 8.5.


Caution If you are migrating your system from Release 1.x, you must use the boot helper for installation. See Migrating from Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 1.x to Release 8.5 for details. If you do not use the boot helper, your installation will fail.

Supported Modules

Older releases of Cisco Unified SIP Proxy supported the NME-CUSP-522-K9 module only. Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 adds support for the SM-SRE-700-K9 and the SM-SRE-900-K9 Service Ready Engine (SRE) modules. These service modules are supported only on the Cisco 2900 Series and Cisco 3900 Series routers. For more information about the specifications for these modules as they relate to Cisco Unified SIP Proxy, see the Release Notes for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5. For more information about these modules in general, see the Cisco SRE Service Module Configuration and Installation Guide.

The Cisco Unified SIP Proxy application software is normally pre-installed on the module at the factory. However, there may be cases where the software may need to be re-installed. For more information, see Installing Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5.

Licensing System

Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 supports the Cisco Software Licensing (CSL) system. CSL licensing is explained further in "Installing the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 Software Licenses".

Open Source Licensing

Some components of the software created for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 are provided through open source or commercial licensing. These components and the associated copyright statements can be found at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10475/products_licensing_information_listing.html.

Platforms and Cisco IOS Software Images

The Cisco Unified SIP Proxy software uses a set of commands that are similar in structure to Cisco IOS software commands. However, Cisco Unified SIP Proxy commands do not affect the Cisco IOS configuration.

Cisco Unified SIP Proxy hardware modules and platforms use the Cisco IOS commands for their operation. See the Release Notes for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5 for detailed information about the supported Cisco Unified SIP Proxy software images and hardware platforms.

Installation Steps

To perform a new installation of Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5, follow the steps in Table 1.
