About This Guide

This guide lists the configuration and capacity boundaries of Cisco Packaged Contact Center Enterprise (Packaged CCE)—a solution deployment for delivering Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise in a virtualized environment. Packaged CCE requires strict adherence to configuration and capacity rules. It is mandatory to follow all requirements stated in this document.

This guide specifies all supported configurations and versions for the current release of Cisco Packaged Unified Center Enterprise. The information in this guide supersedes compatibility information in any other Packaged CCE documentation. If a configuration or version is not stated, that configuration or version is not supported.

Attention: These specifications are for the most current Maintenance Release of Packaged CCE. This document assumes that you are installing—or upgrading to—the latest Maintenance Release.


This document is prepared for system engineers and partners.

Organization of This Guide

This guide is organized as follows:

Chapter 1 Introduction: an overview of the Packaged CCE solution, its components, and its supported features.
Chapter 2 System Requirements and Server Configuration: hardware and software requirements, fault tolerance, and network configuration.
Chapter 3 Configuration Limits: configuration limits and capacity.
Chapter 4 Features and Functions, in alpha order, from Administration tools to Virtualization.
