If your company is is running an out of date version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager (formerly known as Cisco CallManager), now is a great time to upgrade and benefit from compelling new features and technical advances.
Since the introduction of Cisco Unified Call Manager 4.x in 2003, there have been new releases every 12 to 18 months, with Cisco Unified Communications Manager 12.x being the latest offering. Up to 75% of existing users are running out of date software which is end-of-life/end-of-support. Often the server hardware is also end-of-life/end-of-support.
Cisco continues to lead the industry in delivering next-generation communication and collaboration features. Cisco Unified Communications Manager is now a core component of Cisco Business Edition 6000 and Cisco Business Edition 7000, which offer multiple collaboration applications on on a centrally-managed, virtualised hardware platform.
With UCM Cloud there is also now the option to run your own private instance of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the full Cisco collaboration application suite in the cloud, hosted on Cisco data centres.
All of Cisco’s collaboration platforms now use a flexible, monthly subscription model regardless of whether you choose an on-premise, cloud or hybrid solution, so you only pay for what you need.
