This chapter describes the Singlewire InformaCast product that is for use with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Now included with Cisco Unified Communications Manager is the Singlewire InformaCast product that provides paging capabilities for users to make point-to-point or group pages to and from Cisco IP Phones. The software and documentation for the InformaCast product is on a separate DVD included with the purchase of Cisco Unified Communications Manager or available online as a software download on www.cisco.com.
The InformaCast paging functionality is broken down into two categories: basic and advanced functionality. The basic paging features allow paging between Cisco IP Phones to groups and zones that the administrator configures. There are unlimited groups possible with 50 users total in each group in basic paging. Basic paging is provided as a new Cisco Unified Communications Manager feature at no cost. Should there be a requirement for more than 50 users in a single group or for higher level capabilities, the advanced features of InformaCast are required and highly recommended. This includes valuable features such as:
There are numerous additional features of Advanced Paging. To determine if Advanced Paging/Notification is appropriate for the end user Cisco Unified Communications Manager deployment, there is a 60 day trial of the advanced functionality to evaluate the higher level features. After installation of the software, there will be an option to begin the demonstration period for full access to all capabilities. To retain Advanced Functionality after trial or if this functionality is required at the time of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager purchase, the Advanced Paging and Notification functionality can be purchased as a perpetual license from SolutionsPlus or as a subscription directly from Singlewire. For more information on the product's capabilities or for sales questions, contact Singlewire or refer to the documentation and support information included with the product.
