I found the following in Cisco Documentation : Cisco does not support the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Attendant Console with new installations of Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0(1).
What is the alternative for that?
What can I use if I want to have an attendant console?
These are thrid party systems but can be purchased through Cisco.and yes you will need a server. you can prchase a Dell, HP etc no need to buy a MCS type.
Yes, you can purchase Unified Department Attendant Console Description
