Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition is an easy-to-manage solution that combines voice, video, mobility, and messaging on a single server to simplify system administration and reduce hardware and operating expenses.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition is designed for medium-sized businesses with up to 500 employees and up to 20 sites (19 remote sites). The solution integrates the benefits of voice, video, mobility, and messaging on a single platform. Previously, organizations needed one hardware server for each application. Consolidating applications on a single server makes the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition a cost-effective solution by eliminating the need to have multiple hardware servers to run multiple applications. It also dramatically simplifies the installation, support, and ongoing management of the system, thereby reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO). With this solution, medium-sized businesses can now more easily afford to bring enterprise-class Cisco Unified Communications features and applications to their headquarters and branch-office locations.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition is based on the Cisco Unified Communications appliance platform. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition supports the world-class Cisco Unified Communications Manager call-processing function and Cisco Unity Connection messaging. The applications are preloaded on the highly reliable 1-rack unit Cisco media convergence server platform. The software preloaded on the server consists of a single firmware image that includes the underlying OS as well as the call-processing and messaging applications. By using a common set of system management and serviceability tools across the OS and multiple applications, the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition is designed to provide a consistent experience and to streamline the ongoing management and operation of a Cisco Unified Communication Solution.
In addition to standard telephony features such as call coverage, call transfer, call waiting, hold, conference, park, and pickup, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition delivers a powerful set of telephony features for medium-sized businesses: for instance, intercom with whisper page, do not disturb, hold reversion, immediate divert to voicemail, and hunt groups.
