Announcing Significant Enhancements to Cisco Unified Communications Licensing
Cisco is pleased to announce significant enhancements to the Cisco Unified Communications software licensing model and Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing that will positively impact customers and reflect the continual commitment to make it easier for customers to do business with Cisco.
Introducing Cisco User Connect Licensing
Over a three month phased rollout, beginning March 2010, most Cisco Unified Communications products will follow a new user-based licensing model, called Cisco User Connect Licensing (UCL). UCL will be available for the Cisco Unified Communications (UC) System Release 8.0 and future releases. UCL is available only to certain Cisco Unified Communications products, including IP telephony, mobility, conferencing, presence, clients and messaging.
With UCL, quoting server software, device license units (DLUs), ports, options, is no longer needed etc. This process has been greatly simplified-- now only the number of users and public space devices need to be counted and licensed. All Right to Use (RTU) fees, DLU fees, port licenses, etc. will be converted to a single User Connect License.
To add more flexibility for customers, UCL can now be mixed within the same cluster with Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing. Customers no longer need a separate cluster when ordering Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing. These changes apply only to Cisco Unified Communications System Release 8.0 products and future releases (note: Cisco Unified Communications Manager will offer UCL beginning with Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.1.5). For those customers interested in migrating, there will be cost-effective migration options available.
Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing is More Valuable Than Ever!
Effective April 11, 2010, Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing Professional Edition includes Cisco WebEx Meeting Center web conferencing deployed with Unified MeetingPlace and the Cisco WebEx Node for MCS. Unified MeetingPlace and the WebEx Node are required components as is WebEx Meeting Center port licensing. Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing Professional Edition will include 3 years of Cisco WebEx Meeting Center services with 4 internal ports and 1 external port per 100 CUWL Professional users. Internal ports allow users that are connected to the corporate network to access meetings through the WebEx Node for MCS.
In addition, one session of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Session Edition, will be included in Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing Professional Edition for every five user. And finally, Cisco Intercompany Media Engine will be added to all editions of Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing.
