Cisco Prime Collaboration Assurance - Advanced licensing is based on the endpoint quantity. The number of endpoints determines
the number of licenses that you need to purchase to manage your network. Along with the total number of endpoints, you must
also consider the system capacity parameters, such as the number of each supported endpoint types, and CDR limits, to choose
the most suitable virtual machine resources for your deployment.
With Assurance Advanced option, you can manage Cisco voice and video Collaboration Systems through a single, consolidated
view. It includes continuous, real-time monitoring and advanced troubleshooting tools for Cisco Collaboration applications
and endpoints, such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (Cisco VCS), Cisco
TelePresence, and so on.
The mode of installation is Evaluation or Advanced. To learn more about Advanced install mode, see Deployment Model - Advanced.

All Unified CM registered endpoints in a specific cluster must be managed in Cisco Prime Collaboration Assurance to provide
the statistics data to support all monitoring, testing, and reporting features in Cisco Prime Collaboration Assurance and
Analytics; for example, statistics from the Unified CM Publisher CDR are required to compute route group utilization, Severely
Conceal Seconds Ratio (SCSR)(%), and call failure measurements. When the Unified CM publisher is discovered, all endpoints
(including phones) registered with it are discovered.
