Convert IPT Router Based on Call Manager to CME

Unanswered Question

Hello ALL,

Is it possible to convert a 2801 router with a CUE module to a router running call manager express instead. We are currently using a Call Manager server and would like to know about removing the Call Manager server and moving to Call Manager Express instead. Will the CUE module work the same? What other functions might we lose?

Thank you in advance for your help,


I have this problem too.

You will need to konw if your current IOS version supports CallManager Express. As I can see you have used that router to support CUE and as a voice gateway.

Hope this helps,

If you are using your router as SRST backup for CallManager then you can use it as CME.

First of all, you will have got to upgrade your IOS version to the compatible CallManager Express IOS version. After that, you don't have lost your configuration if the new IOS supports your old features. You can check the IOS and CME compatibility at:

After that, you only will need to set up CallManager Express. Take a look to this link:

You can use CUE with this new CME deployment.

Hope this helps,

Juan Luis
