Need help regarding a customer licensing requirement. Customer UC background as below:
They are currently licensed under DLU. They are purchasing new 7900 Series IP phones. Seeing that DLUs are no longer orderable, the new IP phones will have to be licensed based on users (UCL or CUWL).
If, for example, we decide to go with UCL (CUCM Enhanced and Presence only, as Unity Express is not supported by UCL) + UCSS for the new phones, kindly advise:
DLU are still alive and well. You have to order DLU for 6.1, UCL only applies to CUCM 7.1.5 and above. CUE has its own licensing SKU and has nothing to do with DLU/UCL/CUWL..
Thanks for the reply.
UCSS provides you rights to upgrade. All users prior to 7.1.5 are considered enhanced users
Yes UCL is still DLU in the backend, nothing has changed
That assumes prior to 7.1, the SKU should be different after CUE 7.1
Here is the SKU for CUE 7.1 and later
Check the OG for details
Thanks for the information. It really helps!
One more thing, say we have ordered UCL for the CUCM 6.1., can they work? Or do I have to work with Licensing to enable the UCLs on CUCM 6.1?
Yes, you have stated that previously. However, I need to know whether or not UCLs can work on CUCM 6.1. Your reply above is slightly confusing to each other. Kindly clarify.
UCL or DLU is one and the same. when you buy UCL you get DLU is the point I am making here. the software doesn’t know the difference since today UCL translates to DLU just as before
However as per licensing rules you can only buy UCL SKU from 7.1.5 and later
When 9.0 comes around this will be enforced also in software, does that help?
So bottom line it will work but you should have ordered DLU for your version if it's below 7.1.5
