Hi hossam1989I believe you

Hi

achieve your goal.

Part Number - CTI-VCS-STPAK-K9

However, The VCS is now considered End Of Life :( although the VM version will continue. The replacement (according to the End of Sale announcement), is a "VCS Control And Expressway Platform UCS C220 M3 Bundle"

Part Number - CTI-CE500-BDL-K9

I don't know much about the second option and the cost differences. I also assume that this will be a virtualised solution which has its own restrictions on the hardware you need to use.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi Hossam,1 - Yes you can

Hi Hossam,

1 - Yes you can consider CUCM as a replacement for the VCS Control.

Note that :

- If you have old VC endpoints or non Cisco endpoints you need a VCS Control,

- If you need to call external endpoints, you need a VCS Control and a VCS Expressay

For this you can use what explain Chris (VCS Control And Expressway Platform UCS C220 M3 Bundle) or Virtual solution of VCS Control and Expressway.

You can use also Expressway series http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/unified-communications/expressway-series/datasheet-c78-730478.html?cachemode=refresh

2 - If you have a big deployment I suggest a CUCM + Expressway C & E

Hope it help.

For question 1, the answer is

For question 1, the answer is Yes (in the longer term) - Cisco are trying to migrate people in that direction, but not necessarily a complete product replacement as of today.

There is no precise answer to question 2 - that'll all depend on your business and requirements.

See the Demystifying BE6K presentation for some information which may assist your choices.
