Mixed License?

Sorry if this is a dumb question. I have a customer who wants to have a Unity 2.46 system with both UM and VM users on it. They can't afford to give all users UM but do want to give them VM.<br><br>Looking through the license options in the Cisco price list I can't see any mixed UM and VM licenses.<br><br>Am I right to think that you can't actually run both UM and VM on the same system, and that there is no license for this?<br><br>If my assumption is correct, are there any serious issues with buying two systems and running them both to the same Call Manager? How would you handle having two systems register with CM?<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Tim<br><br>Solution Architect<br>MCSE Unity SE<br>Compaq Global Services

Re: Mixed License?

You could either install two Unity systems, or use one Unified Messaging server with enough user licenses and create 2 different classes of service, one for Unified subscribers and 1 for voicemail only subscribers -- you don't have to give everyone Unified Messaging with a UM server.

Re: Mixed License?

Hi Scott, I guess this question is about licenses as much as anything. I understand that I could run both UM and VM users on a single system, the question is can I get a license for - say - 200 users split 100 user VM and 100 user UM?

I don't want to have to buy all UM licenses and only give users VM capability - it would be a waste of the customers money.

So can I have both UM and VM licenses on the same Unity system?

Thanks

Re: Mixed License?

I would say that's a question you'll want to work out with your account team. I think you make a valid point, so it's a matter of finding out if there's a sales solution for you.

Re: Mixed License?

Mixed licensing is not offered at this time. The only options are all VM or all UM.

Re: Mixed License?

I have unity 3.1 installed. I have my COS configured so no licenses are alloted for any thing. When I go to use outlook viewmail it works just fine. I don't understand why I have a UM license if I can check my voicemail from outlook without using a visual messaging user licence. Does any one know a good link to some info on the unified portion of unity. I have yet to find any info.

Re: Mixed License?

You can run VMO, but you're not licensed for it (i.e. just like you can install a single copy of Word all over the place... doesn't mean it's legal).

the UM license also gets you text to speech capabilities to get at your email and the ability to fax email and attachments from over the phone. These are strictly enforced since we pay a per session license to the TTS vendors for their engines we distribute.
