This document specifies the hardware and software that have been qualified by Cisco Quality Assurance for use with Unified Intelligence Center.
The content of this document is updated periodically for technical clarification and to align with subsequently-qualified hardware and third-party software. Document updates are typically synchronized with major and maintenance releases.
Unified Intelligence Center Deployments
Unified Intelligence Center can be installed as a standalone, single server or as a cluster of a maximum of eight nodes. There is one mandatory publisher node (called the Controller) and a maximum of seven subscriber nodes (called Members). The Controller node includes a Member; thus a deployment can consist of a Controller only.
Unified Intelligence Center Applications
Unified Intelligence Center consists of two web interfaces: Unified Intelligence Center Reporting and Administration.
The Reporting application is the report presentation layer for Cisco Contact Center products. Users who are authenticated at login can perform various functions based on their User Roles and object permissions. These functions include viewing and running reports, scheduling reports, viewing and creating dashboards, assigning roles and object permissions to reporting users, and viewing and creating data sources. Reporting is available on all nodes (on the Controller and on each Member).
The Administration application provides Operations Administration Maintenance Provisioning (OAMP) functions such as configuring, starting and stopping devices, managing licenses, and setting trace levels. Administration is offered on the Controller node only and is used by Super Users.

All servers belonging to a cluster (the Unified Intelligence Center Controller and all Member nodes) can reside in the same Local Area Network (LAN), or can be separated by a Wide Area Network (WAN).
The disk capacity and hardware type of Member nodes should be equal to or greater than those of the Controller node.
Unified Intelligence Center is supported on MCS-7845 servers or their equivalents as described in the HP and IBM server links from this page:
