New Product Hold
Cisco is conducting a review cycle for Cisco Unified CallManager 4.2 until Cisco Unified CallManager 4.2(1)SR1 is released in late April 2006.
The general process for getting your order removed from new product hold is as follows. New product hold must be cleared for install CDs, upgrade CDs, and Web download from Cisco.com.
1. Place an order for the software. This step can be omitted if you are simply downloading the upgrade from 4.0(2a) or 4.1(3) to 4.2 from Cisco.com. This can be accomplished through normal purchasing methods from Cisco, a distributor, or a partner. There is also a download from Cisco.com for upgrades from Cisco Unified CallManager versions 4.0(2a) and 4.1(3). Cisco maintenance contract holders can take their maintenance contract and use the Product Upgrade Tool (PUT) to generate a $0 order.
2. Fill out the new product hold clearance Web form. (Cisco.com login is required to view this content). Please put in as much detail as possible. The Cisco Sales Order number (SO#) or PUT Order ID are required if CDs are to be delivered. If you intend to download the upgrade software, you can simply provide the Cisco.com user ID of the person that will perform the download. Cisco will not process any orders that do not have this information.
3. The new product hold review team will review the order within three business days. Under normal circumstances the review will occur within one business day.
4. A notification will be sent by e-mail to the submitter.
5. If only the downloadable Cisco.com package is needed, the submitter will be given a URL to obtain the software.
6. If CDs are needed, the new product hold review team will authorize release of the new product hold. Manufacturing actually clears the orders and it usually takes one to two business days for the order to be fully cleared.
7. When the new product hold is cleared, normal order fulfillment follows.
Please note: The new product hold review team can not escalate orders. Please use the Global Contact Center (GCC) should you have any questions about specific orders. The GCC can be reached by:
● Calling 1-800-553-6387 option 3.
● Opening a case by using the Case Management Tool.
● Sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
