I have CUCM 8.x running and am now looking at Mobility (including SNR). From what I have read so far is the following:
- Support for iPhone by installing firmware file on CUCM & adding Dual Mode for iPhone device + loading App onto iPhone
- Support for Nokia clients (S60) by installing firmware file on CUCM & adding Nokia S60 device + loading client onto Nokia device
the above two works without CUMA
- Is there support for BLackBerry devices on CUCM 8.X like above & do I need CUMA for this?
Seems there is lots of overlapping functions & names which makes it pretty confusing.
Any help appreciated.
You're exactly right. There are lots of overlapping functions & names which makes it pretty confusing.
1) CUCM Mobility Feature
CUCM Mobility Feature works without CUMA server or any smart client (without any software running on smartphones). This includes:
Mobile Connect (a.k.a. Single Number Reach/SNR/Simultaneous Ringing).
Mobile Voice Access/Enterprise Feature Access (a.k.a. MVA / EFA).
2) Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator (a.k.a. CUMC)
CUMC requires CUMA server and smart clients (smartphones). CUMC supports Nokia, Blackberry, iPhone, Windows Mobile.
3) Cisco Mobile
*Supposed* to be the next generation of CUMC. Does not require CUMA. But requires smart clients (smartphones). Since Cisco Mobile is still under development, there are some limitations:
#1 Right now, it only has iPhone version.
#2 It does not cover all features of CUMC. (which means, you still need CUMC if you want those features).
If you have more questions, please feel free to let me know.
