Unified Communications Manager 4.2 vs 6.x

Unanswered Question
Feb 11th, 2008

Does anyone know of a quick and dirty "Cheat Sheet" or reference that compares features for 4.2.x and 6.x? We are currently on 4.1.3, and I need to move to the next version. I seem to remember 4.3 doesnt, or didnt, have a clear upgrade path to 7.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

My understanding is that there is a direct upgrade path from both 4.2(3) and 4.3(x) to Windows or Appliance based 7.0.

As it stands at the moment with CM 4.1(3) you could upgrade directly to 6.0 but not 6.1 (6.0 does not upgrade to 7.0)

Hopefully that should make your decision easier. I haven't come across a feature comparison sheet (although it would be really useful).

Hope this has helped in some capacity, if so please rate.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Don,

Just to add a note to the great info from Dave, CCM 6.x is based on the feature set from 4.2 so very comparable feature sets. 6.X adds Intercom (Whisper).

CCM 6.x features

Hope this helps!
