Installing CUCM 8.5 for 300 Users - Which Hardware?

Good day,

I have been tasked to deploy Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.5 for around 300 Users. I am a bit stuck on the choice of which Hardware Platform should CUCM 8.5 runs on for those 300 Users.

Could you please suggest to me if I should go for an MCS Server Platform or a UCS Platform for that kind of deployment?

At the same time, I should put in mind having Cisco Unity Connection 8.5 installed as well to serves for Voice Mails for all those 300 Users. Which Hardware platform should I go for that as well?

Your expert advices will be much appreciated.

Warm regards,

J. Kabundi.

Not sure about prices but for that amount of users a CUCMBE3K would be enough.

Release Notes for Cisco Unified Communications  Manager Business Edition 3000, Release 8.6(1)

If you want to go a little bigger if they plan to expand maybe a CUCMBE 5K.

Good recommendation

note the url below though and specifically the supported phones just in case youre looking (or rather the customer is) for a feature or type of phone and you then realize it isnt supported.

Good day,

Thanks all for your advices and assistance.

Much appreciated. I will investigate more on the CUCMBE 3K and 5K so that I can choose which ones will best fit for future scalability as well.

Warm regards,
