Business Edition 6k upcoming Rls

After Prime Collaboration gone EOS, how many applications are available for C220M?

Expressway-c and Expressway-E are included or are available as a separate .ova format?

Any consolidated implementation and configurational document for BE6k along with ISR 4XXX routers and Expressway -C and expressway-E?

How can we design BE6K + ISR 4xxx + Expressway-c & E within a same building but different data centers as fully HA format?any relevant CVD?

By default you get 2 Speech connect license. 

UCXN-12X-SCPORTSBE6000 Unity Connection 12x - VM Speech Connect Ports2

 

Speech Connect

Unity Connection includes a speech-enabled enhancement to the automated attendant functionality, called Speech Connect. Speech Connect uses voice-enabled directory handlers that allow both employees and outside callers can say the name of an employee and instantly be connected, without having to navigate an audio-text tree, and without knowing the extension of the employee. For easy access for employees, you can configure a Speech Connect speed dial on user phones.

If multiple employees have the same name or if Speech Connect does not have a perfect match for the name spoken by the caller, it presents numerous name choices for the caller and can include additional information such as the employee location or department.

For detailed information about setting up directory handlers, see the “Directory Handlers” section of the “Call Management” chapter of the System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 12.x, at https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/12x/administration/guide/b_12xcucsag.html.

 

you can configure two Speech Connect Ports on unity.

choose of VCS or for CUCM version 11.x TP-Room License means,  you can register MX 800(I believe u are using MX as VC end Point) on CUCM and TP room license will be utilized by CUCM or on expressway C server using LIC-EXP-ROOM license.

 

when you purchase TP-Room license you also get LIC-EXP-ROOM which is free. If you need to register MX-800 on VCS you can use LIC-EXP-ROOM license on expressway C.

Sip Trunk depends on your deployment. if you go through the the Design Guide shared you can plan it.

 

if the version which you are using is 12.X, its smart licensing. the license will be deposited in smart account.

version 11.X its PLM. install the license in PLM and add the unity and CUCM publishers instances. 

 

you can learn more about Smart licensing from below link.

You  can do clustering over the Wan, but you need to consider below prerequisites. And you need to make sure all required ports are opened through the wan. if you meet all prerequisites, switch over will be same. 

 

if your TSP supports, you can have HA on PRI, and it should be done  by TSP.

Clustering over the IP WAN

Cisco supports CUCM clustered over an IP WAN. Figure 2-7 shows the publisher and two subscribers at one location while another pair of subscribers from the same cluster resides at a different location. The QoS-enabled IP WAN connects the two sites. Note the requirement of a round trip time less than 80 ms between the sites. This requirement is in support of database replication occurring between the publisher and all the subscribers in the cluster.

 

 

Figure 2-7 Clustering over the WAN

Some of the characteristics of this model include:

  • Applications and CUCM servers of the same cluster can be distributed over the IP WAN.
  • The IP WAN carries intracluster server communication and signaling.
  • Limited number of sites:
    • Two to four sites for local failover (two CUCM servers per site)
    • Up to eight sites for remote failover across the IP WAN (one CUCM server per site).

The cluster design is useful for customers who require more functionality than the limited feature set that is offered by Cisco Unified SRST. This network design also allows remote offices to support more IP phones than SRST if the connection to the primary CUCM is lost.

Design Guidelines for Clustering over WAN Deployment Model

Although the distributed single-cluster call-processing model offers some significant advantages, it must adhere to these strict design guidelines:

  • Two CUCM servers in a cluster must have a maximum round-trip delay of 80 ms between them. Because of this strict guideline, this design can be used only between closely connected, high-speed locations.
  • A minimum of 1.544 Mbps (T1) of bandwidth is required for Intra-Cluster Communication Signaling (ICCS) between each site and every other site that is clustered over the WAN. This bandwidth supports up to 10,000 busy hour call attempts (BHCAs) within the cluster. The BHCA represents the number of call attempts that are made during the busiest hour of the day.
  • In addition to the bandwidth required for ICCS traffic, a minimum of 1.544 Mbps (T1) of bandwidth is required for database and other inter-server traffic between the publisher and every subscriber node within the cluster.
  • Up to eight small sites are supported using the remote failover deployment model. Remote failover allows you to deploy one server per location. (A maximum of eight call-processing servers are supported in a cluster.) If CUCM fails, IP phones register to another server over the WAN. Therefore, Cisco Unified SRST is not required in this deployment model (although it is supported). The remote failover design may require significant additional bandwidth, depending on the number of telephones at each location.

This round trip delay 80 ms threshold is default/fix or we can change this threshold to prevent frequent splitting in between Publisher & Subscriber? This is the recommended round trip delay between publisher and subscriber to avoid db replication issues  when u do the  clustering through WAN.  This value is  not a setting on CUCM. 

 

subscriber to publisher, every configuration that have been made on subscriber will be shown/implement on publisher after coming back or we need to reconfigure on publisher..? its   recommended to make configurations changes on publisher. what ever configurations you make on publisher will be replicated to subscriber if DB replication is good. if publisher is down you cannot make any administrative changes  Only end user facing features can be modified.
