Cisco Unified Communications Solutions unify voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed and mobile networks, enabling easy collaboration every time from any workspace. Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM) is the powerful call-processing component of the Cisco Unified Communications solution. It is a scalable, distributable, and highly available enterprise IP telephony call-processing solution.
As your needs evolve, Cisco Unified Communications Manager continues to evolve to meet those needs. Cisco Unified Communications Manager version 8.0 aims to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for organizations and improve the communications experience for end users as well as system administrators.
Cisco Intercompany Media Engine
Cisco Intercompany Media Engine allows intercompany, boundaryless communications among business partners and customers. It allows enterprise video telephony and highfidelity wideband audio between companies. It is easy to use because it self-learns IP routes to business partners. It enables sharing of innovative collaboration capabilities and applications between partners. Cisco Unified Communications Manager works with the Cisco Intercompany Media Engine and the adaptive security appliance (ASA) to provide business-to-business connectivity.
Cisco service advertisement framework
This network-based, scalable, bandwidth-efficient, real-time approach to service advertisement and discovery allows Cisco Unified Communications Manager to advertise directory number ranges that it owns and discover and dynamically create routes for other Cisco Unified Communications Manager clusters. It greatly reduces dial-plan configuration for complex unified communications deployments.
Extension Mobility Cross Cluster
Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.0 adds support for EMCC, which allows you to cross cluster boundaries but still log into your Extension mobilty profile. EMCC is designed so that you get nearly the same experience whether or not you are in your home cluster.
RSVP SIP preconditions
Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.0 enhances RSVP to allow calls that cross cluster boundaries or terminate in other call control clusters to be able to use RSVP agents to provide end-to-end dynamic Call Admission Control (CAC) even for calls to phones outside the cluster.
Analysis managerProduct Highlights
Analysis manager is a feature of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT) that allows RTMT to provide solution-level diagnostic features for other Cisco Unified Communications applications.
