I was reading the Release notes form CUCM 7.1(5) and saw that:
Upgrading to Unrestricted Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 7.1(5)
Before you upgrade from Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.x or 7.x to unrestricted Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.1(5), install the unrestricted COP file that you can find here (copy and paste):"
I would like to know what the Unrestricted stands for?
thanks in advance
Yes, however, I'm not sure if they will publish both on CCO or what they plan to do about distribution. But they definitely are going to release both versions. The RNs explain this as well
Unrestricted Export Support
The restricted US export classification on Cisco Unified CM meant that governmental and military
customers in many countries could not employ Unified CM in their networks.
In addition to the delay inherent in obtaining export licenses, products classified as restricted by the
Department of Commerce (DoC) carry a requirement to allow US government representatives to demand
on-site inspections at any time to confirm that the product is being used in accordance with its licensed
purpose. This post-shipment verification (PSV) is unacceptable to many customers.
Additionally, some foreign countries maintain import restrictions which prohibited Unified CM from
being available to customers in those countries. Both US export and foreign import issues stem from
Unified CM support for strong encryption of signaling and media.
Because Cisco has obtained an unrestricted classification from the DoC for a version of Unified CM,
beginning with Unified CM 7.1(5), both restricted and unrestricted versions of Unified CM will be
released in parallel.
Signaling and media encryption is permanently disabled in the unrestricted version, but remains
unchanged in the restricted version.
Migration from the unrestricted version to the restricted version is not supported.
The actual filename will also show this, can't remember exactly which one will change, but you'll see RESTRICTED or UNRESTRICTED in the actual filenames for the upgrades.
EDIT: one more thing, if you're planning to go to 8.0 there is no upgrade path from 7.1(5). You'll need to wait until the next 8.x release.
If this helps, please rate
