CUCM 8.5 compatibility with Cisco 3550 POE switches

                   I am planning for a cluster upgrade from 7.1 to CUCM 8.5 on UCS and was surprised to see that 3550 POE is not comptaibile with this version, per compt matrix it is supported with CM 8.0 but not 8.5, the only question which bothers me is what is a switch has to do with CUCM version?

anybody knows what is the technical reason for this?

HI

This may be because 3550 is End of Sale and support long back, that is why they have not tested this switch.

As this switch is end of support. You may have to consider using new switch.

Hi Satish,

If you were looking at this doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/uc_system/unified/communications/system/versions/IPTMtrix.html

This shows "tested" versions of hardware/software, not "supported" versions of

hardware/software. My thought is that the 3550 went completely EoL in May of

2011 which would have been before the testing was done and EoL products

would not be included in the Testbed

There should be no technical reason why they can't be used with CUCM 8.5

Cheers!
