Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for Cisco Unity 3.1 is Cisco Unity 4.0. Cisco Unity 4.0 offers all the benefits of Cisco Unity 3.1 plus feature enhancements for stability, scalability, interoperability, and additional localizations.

Cisco Unity 3.1 customers with a current Cisco Software Application Support Plus Upgrades (SASU) contract may upgrade to Cisco Unity 4.0 (or the current shipping version at the time of upgrade). Customers with a Cisco SASU contract can order the most current version of Cisco Unity via the Product Upgrade Tool at http://www.cisco.com/upgrade.

Cisco Unity 4.0 must be deployed on a supported server listed in the Cisco Unity Supported Platforms List. Please visit
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_data_sheet0900aecd802132ef.html for the list of supported platforms for use with Cisco Unity software.

Customers without a support contract or customers with a Cisco Software Application Support (SAS)-only contract that want Cisco Unity 4.0 may purchase the Cisco Unity 4.0 upgrade. For ongoing support and software updates, they should also purchase a Cisco SASU contract.
