UCL and UC8.5 / 3 questions

Hi Everyone

I'm trying to understand the new UCL for 8.5.

Q1 : Mobile Connect

Refering to the ordering guide (page 18-19 of "ip_comm_og_ucl_based_1021.pdf") :

Enhanced IP User License :

Entitles the user to use of a single endpoint of any make or model, including a hard phone and Soft phone from Cisco or a third party.

The Enhanced IP User License also entitles Mobile Connect for a user who has a mobile client (dual mode or Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator) or any thirdparty
mobile solution.

Any user with a mobile client or third-party mobile solution requires an Enhanced UCL.

Basic IP User License :

Entitles the user to use of one (1) Basic Cisco IP Endpoint, currently Cisco Unified IP Phone 6911 and 6921 models.

Basic IP User License also entitles Mobile Connect for a user who does not have any mobile client (dual mode or Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator) or any third-party mobile solution.

==> So if a user have a Mobile phone, he can use Mobile connect only if he doesn't have any mobile client, that's it ?What's do yo mean with "Third Pary solutions" ?

Q2 : The Three pricing Tiers

If a need to order, for example, 5000 x Basic UCL and 5000 x Enhanced UCL, how does it work ?

1000 x LIC-CUCM-USR-A

4000 x LIC-CUCM-USR-B

+

1000 x LIC-CUCM-BASIC-USR-A

4000 x LIC-CUCM-BASIC-USR-B

==> Sounds Good ? (The DCT is not updated for 8.5, so I can't try online for the moment...)

Q3 : UC on UCS and sizing mistake

There is a mistake in this Ordering guide (page 43) :

"2. Determine Virtual Machine Quantity and Cisco UCS Server Quantity
For UCS C series, one Virtual Machine per server is supported, so the required UCS server count is the same as the MCS server "

==> Huhu, good joke Nothing is mentionned about coresidency, please be carefull.

Thanks in advance !

Regards,

1) If you plan to use dual mode phones you need to be enhanced. By third party it can refer to MVS from Blackberry etc

2) If the sum total of users for this client is 10000 (5000+5000) then you are in the 10K bracket for the users and correspondingly for UCSS. Now if you have a addon for 1000 users then your bracket is 1K even though you have more than 10000 users.

See the slide deck for more examples

3) Correct. Since UC on UCS is a fast moving area always refer to this link for up to date information
