BE6k Express way




I have installed BE6k and still think for the Expressway

I received the following


LIC-VCS-10+    [non-traversal]

LIC-VCSE-5+   [traversal]


CTI-VCSC-BE6K-PAK   [vcs control PAK ID]




Please advise if I can implement Expressway control and edge to make use of the remote registration with Jabber

or what is the use of this received PNs

Thanks George for your

Thanks George for your helpful reply

Now after ordering the expressway


I'll install Expressway-C on a UCS and expressway-E on the other UCS

I think they are the same image but the license will define the role !!

Do I need to separate them by a firewall as in the design diagram on cisco ?

what will be offered by the free license ? As how many concurrent sessions for remote connections.





Correct, you can install EXP

Correct, you can install EXP-C on one and EXP-E on the other. You necessarily dont need a firewall between your EXP-C and EXP-E but it also depends on what you have deployed. The EXP-E typically sits in the DMZ and EXP-C on the internal network. 

The free license gives you Mobile and Remote access functionality and there is no limit on the number of calls but its limited to hardware specs.If you use the medium OVA, i think its 100 video or 100 audio calls concurrently.
