I have a CME 4.0 Router (3845) with Unity express NM-CUE-EC. I would like to add a hot standby in case this one fails. I want the phones to switch over to the standby Router and I can swith the T-1 connections to this Standby Router.

1. Is this possible?

2. Do I have to creat Identical

configuration on the standby router?

3. Do I have to use additional hardware

and software to make this work?

4. What about the licensing? Do I have

to buy Licenses for the spare Router


Is there a configuration guide or a link on Cisco's website?

Thanks in advance

you can create a redundant CME solution.

CUE cannot be created redundantly though, only CME.

the configuration will be almost identical except for some specific unique parameters.

you will need the additional router and software licensing to create the redundant CME.

follow the link below for more info:


(see the redundant router section)
