The difference b/w 2 SKUs

Answered Question
Sep 10th, 2008

Hi,

Want to understand the difference b/w to GPL SKUs:

{

Part Number: MCS-7816-I3-IPC1

Description: HW Only MCS-7816-I3 with 2GB RAM and One 160GB SATA HD

and

Part Number: MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2

Description: Unified CM 6.1 7816-I3 Appliance, 0 Seats

}

The price is the same for both entries. The hardware, I think, is also

similar. I suppose the first one (MCS-7816-I3-IPC1) does not contain any

CD/DVD software package. Whereas the second one (MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2) does.

Am I right ?

Are there any other differences ?

I have this problem too.

Hey Tobivan,

Life is great here! Hopefully for you as well :)

The "CMA/CMB" designation on the Part# does indicate a "pre-loaded" appliance. So yes, this server would be shipped with the Linux OS and Communications Manager 6.1 pre-loaded. The "IPC1" Version will not ship with any CCM discs and they will need to be ordered seperately :)

Here are some examples;

The server appliance is preinstalled with an operating system and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager application. Cisco Unified Communications Manager is fully operational upon startup, requiring entry of just a few configuration variables such as IP address and domain.

Product part number

MCS7816H3-K9-CMB2

Preload

Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.1

OS

Included

CMB1 = Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.0

CMB2 = Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.1

CMA2 = Cisco Unified Communications Manager 5.1

Hey Tobivan,

Hope all is well my friend! Maybe after my mistakes from last week I should steer clear but....

The MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2 is actually a "pre-loaded" Appliance with CCM 6.1

Hey, Rob.

I hope you are fine.

When you saying 'the MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2 is a "pre-loaded" appliance with CUCM 6.1'

you mean that I got the server in the box that has already CUCM installed as Operating

System by vendor ? Or I got only server with DVD discs with CUCM software that I must install manually ?

Also does MCS-7816-I3-IPC1 contain any discs in the box ?

Thank you.

Hi,

MCS-7816-I3-IPC1 is a server ready for Call Manager 4.x which is Windows based.

MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2 is a server ready for Call Manager version 6.1 which is Linux based.

No CD/DVD is available with either models.

Hope this answers your queries.

Regards

Denny
