Re: Call Manager Upgrade question

It really depends on your needs. Here are the new capabilities that CCM 4.2(3) has:

Keep in mind that if you upgrade to CCM 4.2(3) you won't be able to upgrade to CCM 5 since is not on the compatibility matrix:

Re: Call Manager Upgrade question

Hi Tobivan,

Just to add a note to Jorg's great info (5 points for your continued good work Jorg) This upgrade is certainly not essential. The 4.2 release does add some really great features (marked with **) If you do not have the need for these changed/added features I wouldn't upgrade to CCM 4.2. It sounds like soon to be released CCM 6.0 might be worth waiting for.

New and Changed Information for Cisco CallManager Features CCM 4.2

The following sections describe new and changed information related to Cisco CallManager features:

Multilevel Precedence and Preemption Enhancements

Device Mobility

Cisco CallManager Attendant Console and Call Pickup Limitation

** Call Pickup Notification

Call Forwarding Enhancements

Password Management Features

New MLPP Service Lockout Enterprise Parameter
