I have noticed that Cisco has made improvements to IOS, CUE, and CCA for the UC520. However, there are some improvements that cannot be made at the software level on the UC520.
Here are the improvements that I would like to see made on the next version of the UC520:
- Flash memory increased
- CUE storage capacity increased
- Dual WAN ports
- Wireless-N versions available
- Additional DSPs added to UC520 units - this increases transcoding and conferencing resources, which are needed to support hardware conferencing, live record, and additional transcoded VoIP calls
Unlike the enhancements made in IOS, CME, CUE, and CCA, making hardware-level enhancements requires the release of a new model in the UC520 series. Will Cisco be releasing a new model of the UC500 in the UC500 series?
