I have a query -
What's the difference between Cisco Unity & Cisco Unified Messaging ? My understanding is that Cisco Unity only gives us Voice Mail, while Unified Messaging gives us many capabilties. I want to know exactly what capabilities.
Can anyone help?
You are always welcome (you know this!).
Yes, the new Cisco Unified Workplace Licensing does cover both aspects (Unity and CCM) along with some others. You would need the "Professional Edition" for Unified Messaging.
Q. What Cisco Unified Communications products are included in Unified Workspace Licensing?
A. Unified Workspace Licensing is available in two versions, Standard Edition and Professional Edition.
â¢ Standard Edition includes a per-user license for the following: any model of Cisco IP phone, a Cisco UnityÂ® or Cisco Unity Connection voice mailbox, a Cisco Unified Presence server, a Cisco Unified Mobility application, and a Unified Communications client (user's choice of Cisco IP Communicator, Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, or Cisco Unified Video Advantage).
** Professional Edition includes everything in Standard Edition plus support for an unlimited number of Cisco IP phones per user, one Cisco Unity unified messaging mailbox per user, one Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator per user, and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace or Unified MeetingPlace Express audio, video, and Web conferencing.
I'm not sure about the size of this deployment so be careful with this caveat;
"There is a minimum quantity of 250 licenses for all new Unified Workspace Licensing orders."
From this good Q&A doc;
Hope this helps!
