I have no hands-on experience about Unity Connection. I am newbie to this application.
I have two questions. The first one is about CUCM Integration with Unity Connection. I'd like to make use of Unity Connection so as to provide my customers with a basic auto-atttendant feature. At the end of the day, unity connection and CUCM should allow users to route calls to desired extension or to the operator making use of the auto-attendant feature. Could you please be so kind to share some links or documents which describe this basic configuration.
The second one is about Unity Connection licensing. Since i will not use voicemail ports for each user, do i have to offer additional user license (if yes, how many) so as to provide my customer with 16 simultaneous auto-attendant feature?

To add to good stuff from Manish (+5 ); For Licensing there are two ways u can get licenses.
1. Go with UCL licensing and order Unity Connection sperate and get either UNITYCN9-STD-USR or UNITYCN9-ENH-USR.
UNITYCN9-ENH-USR : Enahnced users as Manish said will give you all the basic voicemail features (voicemail ports, auto-attendant functionality) and a standby mailbox at branch site for all the users for which licenses are ordered.
You can additonally get Speechview standardand professional for 1 year subscription to do the "speech to text" conversion for voicemails on your email.
2. Go with either CUWL-STD or CUWL-PRO. Both include Enhanced messaging and lot more.
To understand Cisco Licensing refer this link
Now with Cisco phasing out the MCS, the voicemil ports are no more based on the hardware its actually the Virtual machine for UCXN deployment. Refer to the table 5 for more details.
For details on SRSV specifications refer table 31 in link below.
