Call Manager 5.1 How to calculate UM phone "points"

Unanswered Question

We are going to install a new UM 4.x on call manager 5.1. phones = 800 , mix of several models.


I spoke w/ Ingram Micro and they stated that UM 5.x requires "points" to enable the phones.


7911 = 4 points

7970 = 5 points

7940 = 4 points

Softphone = 3 points


Where is it documented the "points" system, any info I can read ?


Any reply would be great

Hi Mark,


This is correct :) These points are called Device License Units (DLU's). Here is some more detailed info;


Device licenses are required for Cisco devices and for third-party devices, with the flexibility to replace third-party devices with Cisco devices. Device licenses are sold in increments of device-license units (DLU's). Device-license units are assigned to each device connected to Cisco Unified CallManager 5.0. Each device is assigned a unit number based on the type and capabilities of the device. Devices with more complex and high-end capabilities are assigned a higher number of units compared to devices with basic capabilities,


Here is the DLU breakdown;


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7902G = 1


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905G = 2


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G = 3


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912G = 3


Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7920 (no battery) = 4


Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7936 = 3


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940G = 4


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941G = 4


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941G-GE = 4


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7960G = 4


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G = 4


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G-GE = 4


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G = 5


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G = 5


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985G = 6


Third-party SIP device (basic) = 3 (third-party)


Third-party SIP device (advanced) = 6 (third-party

This is the reason for the Cisco Unified Communications specialization. If you are not a Cisco partner, then you can't buy the CallManager 5.1 software or DLUs anyway.


Are you a Cisco Unified Communications specialized partner? If not, you will need to work with one.


BTW, if you are upgrading from CCM 4.1 to 5.0/5.1 then you can migrate the phone licenses you already purchased and get DLU credits equal to those CCM 4.1 phone licenses.
