Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan

Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Meetings Datasheet for Enterprise Agreement, Named User and Active User buying models.

Cisco® Collaboration Flex Plan gives you access to Cisco’s collaboration products, allowing you to mix and match buying models and deployment models in a single subscription depending on your buying needs. One subscription covers entitlement and technical support for: (a) the cloud services Webex® Meetings, Webex Calling, Webex Calling for SP, and Webex App and (b) the software Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Meeting Server.

Buying models

In your subscription order, you will designate a buying model for a meetings solution (“Meetings”) and/or calling solution (“Calling”), which determines your payment obligations. If you exceed the capacity count limits associated with the buying model in your order, you will be obligated to pay your Partner (or Cisco if purchasing direct from Cisco) for such excess use. There are three buying models available: Enterprise Agreement, Active User, and Named User. You can choose different buying models for Meetings and Calling, but you may not have more than one buying model for either solution at any point. During your subscription, You also have the flexibility to change your buying model from: (a) Named User to Active User or Enterprise Agreement or (b) Active User to Enterprise Agreement. Table 1 shows the Collaboration Flex Plan buying models and the availability of Meetings and Calling within each buying model.

Deployment models

You will choose a software deployment model for each of your users. For each user with a Meetings entitlement, you will designate one of the following two deployment models: hosted in Webex cloud or deployed on your own premises. For each user with a Calling entitlement, you will designate one of the following three deployment models: hosted in Webex cloud, deployed on your own premises, or hosted through a Partner’s hosted services. Note that when you choose an on-premises or partner-hosted deployment, you will also receive the cloud service Webex App. You have the flexibility to transition from on-premises or partner-hosted to a cloud deployment and vice versa. The deployment model you choose for a user determines their software entitlement, as illustrated in Table 2 below. See the Features and Benefits section of this Data Sheet for more information regarding the deployment options for Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Meetings.

Enterprise Agreement buying model description

The Enterprise Agreement buying model is governed by the Cisco Enterprise Agreement Program Terms (“Program Terms”), which are provided to you and require your acknowledgment when you place an order for Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Meetings-Enterprise Agreement. In accordance with the Program Terms, you must complete an End User Information Form (“EUIF”), which serves as the basis for your price quote.

Minimum purchase

Your EUIF must reflect the greater of: (a) your enterprise-wide Knowledge Worker count and b) 250 Knowledge Workers. “Knowledge Workers” means your employees and contractors that use computing or communications devices capable of running Webex Messaging, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, or Cisco Meeting Server as part of their job duties performed on your behalf. Your Knowledge Worker count also includes the employees of any affiliated corporate entity that is included in your initial subscription order. Your Knowledge Workers receive unique accounts that must not be shared or used by anyone other than the designated Knowledge Worker. A Knowledge Worker’s account must not be transferred to another person, except upon: (a) termination of the Knowledge Worker’s employment or (b) with Cisco’s prior written approval.

Growth

You may access the Cisco software and cloud services by up to 120% of the Knowledge Workers identified in your EUIF (“Growth Allowance”) without incurring additional fees.

True Forward

A “True Forward” is an adjustment process that reconciles fees that you owe when your quantity of provisioned Knowledge Workers exceeds your Growth Allowance. If a True Forward is required, Cisco will generate a bill as part of the annual True Forward event in order to align your payment obligation to your use. Under the Program Terms, the True Forward is assessed in the billing year after you exceed the Growth Allowance. If you are assessed a True Forward one year and you no longer exceed the Growth Allowance, you will not be assessed a True Forward the following year. You may not decrease the Knowledge Workers in your EUIF at any point during your subscription. Please see your purchase agreement for additional details about the True Forward process, including billing. Upon reasonable request, you may need to verify the number of software licenses that you have installed, accessed, deployed, or activated. Cisco or your Partner will handle the True Forward calculation and any additional billing required Your responsibilities related to True Forward overages are tied directly to your payment obligations, and accordingly any lapse in carrying out those responsibilities can result in an interruption of services.

If you modify your order by choosing a different buying model within Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan, you may be required to pay any True Forward fees incurred in connection with your current buying model before you are able to switch to a new buying model.

Enterprise Agreement Features and benefits

When you choose Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Meetings- Enterprise Agreement, you receive entitlements to a bundle of meeting features. Table 3 describes the included features and the availability of each feature to users with a cloud versus an on-premises deployment model. Table 4 describes the add-on features that can be purchased on top of your subscription and the availability of each add-on feature based on the designated deployment model.

Active User True Forward

The Active User True Forward occurs annually during each year of the subscription term on the Anniversary Date.

Cisco Webex Control Hub (“Control Hub”) provides the source of truth on all Active Host and Average Active Host values used in the True Forward.
