CUCM 11.5 is now available on CCO software downloads as of today, the FCS build number is 188.8.131.5200-6 and can be accessed at the following:
As of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Firmware Release 11.5, the following phones are not supported:
Cisco IP Phone 12 SP+ and related models
Cisco IP Phone 30 VIP and related models
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7902
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7910
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7910SW
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7920
Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7935
If you use any of these phone models on an older release of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and you upgrade to Release 11.5, the phone will not work after the upgrade completes.
Also worthy of note is that CUCM IM&P in 11.5 will only work with Expressway V8.8 - Which isn't out yet!
That's an imp point, IM&P 11.5 is out and its compatibility with Expressway deployments needs to be ensured to prevent any issues.
Thanks Aman, i wanted to share the point regarding deprecated endpoints in particular since this is a major change. A lot of installations still have these endpoints and we get a lot of requests checking their compatibility with CUCM 10.x and 11.x versions.
Hi Lisa & Aman,
Just an FYI here.....original posts in the Discussion Level of the forums can never be rated as they are generally posing a question or query. Only Docs, blogs and videos posted by the OP can be rated :)
Thanks for the information, Rob. I'm still confused, though, because there are six 5-star ratings on Manish's original post. Why can some members rate the post and others can't?
You are most welcome my friend!
The ratings info you see on Manish's original post is actually a summary of ratings for the complete thread. If you look at the reply's from within the thread you can see that Manish got 2x5 point ratings on his second post, Gordon got 1x5 point rating and Jaime (Java) got 3x5 point ratings and that is why you see the summary on the OP of 6x5 star ratings.
On the individual posts like Java's you see - Overall Rating: 5 (3 ratings) for example to indicate that he got 3x5 point ratings.
Hope this helps!
is there a document saying that expressway 8.7.1 is not compatible with cucm IM & P 184.108.40.20600-6 upgrade available in CCO ?
Also, below document is talking about 220.127.116.1100-10 release but it is still not available yet
We will upgrade CUCM from 11.0 to 11.5 soon
Thanks in advance ..

The RN explain what Gordon mentions, and x8.8 is now available on CCO.
The x8.8 compatibility note is ONLY applicable when being used for MRA.
The version mentioned in that doc is wrong, probably a typo, that version does not even exist, the FCS release was 18.104.22.16800-6 for CUCM/CUC and 22.214.171.12400-4 for IM&P, which is also different from the one mentioned in the RN.
