The GA (general availability) release of Cisco® Unified CallConnector (UCC) for Microsoft Windows version 1.5 is now available on Cisco.com. To download this final version of Unified Call Connector 1.5, go to the Software Download Center on Cisco.com: http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/callconnector-ms.
This version will be the officially supported version by the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC), so we would recommend that any EA (early adopter) versions of UCC 1.5 that have been deployed by customers, as well as any earlier UCC versions (1.4 or prior) be upgraded to the UCC version 1.5 GA release.
Cisco Unified CallConnector for Microsoft Windows Product Overview
Cisco Unified CallConnector for Microsoft Windows comprises three license ordering options:
• Unified CallConnector Personal: SW-UCC-CLIENT-1
• Unified CallConnector Server: SW-UCC-SERVER
• Unified CallConnector Mobility: SW-UCC-MOBILITY
These three options are orderable under the top-level product ID of SW-UCC-CME=.
Since Cisco Unified CallConnector for Microsoft Windows was launched in the summer of 2007, much of the initial customer interest in this product has been focused on the features related to the UCC Personal client, which provides complete desktop telephone control, easy directory lookup, and click-to-dial features.
However, when Cisco Unified CallConnector Server is added into the solution, the end user receives outstanding value with additional server-based features, including:
• Instant messaging
• Central directory
• User-controlled presence
• Phone state
• Persistent call logs
Cisco Unified CallConnector Server can support multiple CME platforms, so that customers with multisite CME installations can obtain sophisticated presence, directory, and messaging services to enhance the overall productivity of their daily business operations.
