Table 2 Component Types and Descriptions 


Call Control Components Opens new window

Call control components extend enterprise telephony features and capabilities to packet telephony network devices such as IP phones, media processing devices, voice over IP (VoIP) gateways, and multimedia applications. Additional services, such as unified messaging, multimedia conferencing, collaborative contact centers, and interactive multimedia response systems, are made possible through open telephony APIs.

Some examples of these components are Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence.

Application Components Opens new window

Application components are customized applications that help you streamline business processes and drive productivity through Internet Protocol (IP)-based Unified Communications. These components enable the rapid development, reliable execution and automated management of applications that integrate voice and video with enterprise applications and data.

Some examples of these components are Cisco Emergency Responder and Cisco Unified Application Environment.

Conferencing Components Opens new window

Conferencing components provide integrated voice, video, and Web conferencing capabilities to enable remote meetings that are natural and effective with face-to-face quality, such as meetings, training sessions, and presentations.

Some examples of these components are Cisco Unified MeetingPlace and Cisco Unified Videoconferencing.

Voice Mail and Unified Messaging Components Opens new window

Voice mail and unified messaging components deliver powerful voice, integrated, and unified messaging options that transparently integrate with Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, and Novell GroupWise. They scale to meet the needs of large, multisite organizations and offers extensive personalization options, a broad range of productivity enhancing features, and powerful migration tools, including:

Interoperability with existing voice messaging and telephony systems

Custom keypad mapping of the telephony interfaces

Integrated context-sensitive help

Some examples of these components are Cisco Unity and Cisco Unity Connection.

Endpoints and Clients Components Opens new window

Endpoint and client components integrate the management capabilities of IP-based networks with phones, pagers, and computers and use these for signaling, voice communications, and data communications.

Some examples of these components are Cisco IP Communicator, Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, and Cisco Unified 79xx IP Phones.

Wireless and Mobility Components Opens new window

Wireless and mobility components provide services that enable secure, scalable, methods to real-time access to instant messaging, e-mail, and network resources. You can also access real-time simultaneous tracking of thousands of Wi-Fi devices for location-based security, high-value asset tracking, and business policy enforcement.

Some examples of these components are Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator and Aironet Wireless Access Points.

Security Components Opens new window

Security components are processes and technologies designed to quickly adapt to new threats to your network by using proactive, automated, real-time threat management.

Some examples of these components are Cisco Advanced Services Appliance ASA 5500 Series, Firewall Services Modules, and Cisco Intrusion Prevention System Appliance IPS-4200.

Network Management Components Opens new window

Network management components provide an integrated view of the entire Cisco Unified Communications system and present the current operational status of each element of the IP communications network. In addition these components provide a low-cost, reliable method of monitoring and evaluating the quality of calls and diagnosing issues.

Some examples of these components are Cisco Unified Operations Manager, Cisco Unified Service Monitor, and Cisco netManager Unified Communications.

Infrastructure Components Opens new window

Infrastructure components are network routers, switches, software, and other standards-based networking components that provide reliable connectivity that is more resilient and enables all the latest network services.

Some examples of these components are Cisco Series Routers, Cisco Catalyst Series Switches, and Cisco Voice Gateways.
