Feb 29th, 2008

Hi everyone,

recently I have listened about a SRST/CCME license that this already available.

This license is capable to become an full operative CCME instead SRST when the communication to Callmanager is down.

Does Anyone have documentation related to this license

Thanks!!!

Hi Miguel,

Just to add a note to the great info from Brandon and Paolo :) I think what the guys you were talking with referring to was the two models that can be used for SRST. These are called "Cisco Unified SRST" or "Cisco Unified CME in SRST Fallback Mode". Either way Miguel the License is Free :)

Cisco Survivable Remote Site Telephony 4.0 Ordering Guide

Applications and Migration to Cisco Unified SRST

Customers who initially deploy or purchase a Cisco Unified CallManager Express (CME) solution, the CME Feature License includes a provision to use the feature license for Cisco Unified Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST) mode without an additional charge or re-licensing to Cisco. Customers only need to re-configure the router for Cisco Unified SRST mode.

For Cisco Unified SRST Configuration Documentation, please refer to:

SRST Fallback

This feature enables routers to provide call-handling support for Cisco Unified IP phones if they lose connection to remote primary, secondary, or tertiary Cisco Unified Communications Manager installations or if the WAN connection is down. When Cisco Unified SRST functionality is provided by Cisco Unified CME, provisioning of phones is automatic and most Cisco Unified CME features are available to the phones during periods of fallback, including hunt-groups, call park and access to Cisco Unity voice messaging services using SCCP protocol. The benefit is that Cisco Unified Communications Manager users will gain access to more features during fallback ****without any additional licensing costs.

Comparison of Cisco Unified SRST and

Cisco Unified CME in SRST Fallback Mode

Cisco Unified CME in SRST Fallback Mode

• First supported with Cisco Unified CME 4.0: Cisco IOS Software 12.4(9)T

• IP phones re-home to Cisco Unified CME if Cisco Unified Communications Manager fails. CME in SRST allows IP phones to access some advanced Cisco Unified CME telephony features not supported in traditional SRST

• Support for up to 240 phones

• No support for Cisco VG248 48-Port Analog Phone Gateway registration during fallback

• Lack of support for alias command

• Support for Cisco Unity® unified messaging at remote sites (Distributed Exchange or Domino)

• Support for features such as Pickup Groups, Hunt Groups, Basic Automatic Call Distributor (BACD), Call Park, softkey templates, and paging

• Support for Cisco IP Communicator 2.0 with Cisco Unified Video Advantage 2.0 on same computer

• No support for secure voice in SRST mode

• More complex configuration required

• Support for digital signal processor (DSP)-based hardware conferencing

• E-911 support with per-phone emergency response location (ERL) assignment for IP phones (Cisco Unified CME 4.1 only)

Cisco Unified SRST

• Supported since Cisco Unified SRST 2.0 with Cisco IOS Software 12.2(8)T5

• IP phones re-home to SRST router if Cisco Unified Communications Manager fails. SRST allows IP phones to have basic telephony features

• Support for up to 720 phones

• Support for Cisco VG248 registration during fallback

• Support for alias command

• Lack of support for features such as Pickup Groups, Hunt Groups, Call Park, and BACD

• No support for Cisco IP Communicator 2.0 with Cisco Unified Video Advantage 2.0

• Support for secure voice during SRST fallback

• Simple, one-time configuration for SRST fallback service

• No per-phone emergency response location (ERL) assignment for SCCP Phones (E911 is a new feature supported in SRST 4.1)

Hope this helps!

Miguel,

Not sure what information you need. CME as SRST requires CME 4.0 or later. The following link provides configuration information.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucme/admin/configuration/guide/cmesrst.html

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.

The last week i spoke with some guys, and they told me about a new license CCME/SRST, i was looking for some information but, couldn't find it. The feature of this license is very interesting due SRST limeted optios.

it will be very good to have documentation, if really does exist this license.

Thanks

Miguel

I understand thta the normal SRST license covers that already, and no additional license is required.

As Brandon said, it's just a configuration matter.
