Cisco Expressway Softwares

Hi 

 

I'm new to Cisco Expressway solution, in the Cisco site there is only one downloadable file with version X8.2. 

 

Do we need two VMs for expressway ? (for Expressway C and E) or we can use one VM ?

 

Please guide

Two - the Core and Edge each

Two - the Core and Edge each have to run on their own VM. They serve two different purposes in the Expressway solution - the Core is internal and the Edge is public/DMZ.

You'll find deployment guides here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps13435/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html

The run the same core software it's the licensing that differentiates one from the other.

Hope this helps.

On 8.1 train, yes, but we're

On 8.1 train, yes, but we're already up to 8.2.2

Yes, the same image is used for both VCSs and both EXPs, licensing determines what they end up being.

Reach your SE/AM for demo licenses.

If you have a look on CCO,

If you have a look on CCO, and look under "All Release", you should be able to find the Virtual OVA file for X8.2.1 which you can fire up as a demo (no licence required).

Once you have the Virtual Machine built with the above OVA file, you can upgrade it with the .tar.gz to a more recent version if you wish - with X8.2.2 being the latest (and including the fixes for the "ShellShock" Bash vulnerability.

Thanks again

The OVA has some basic

The OVA has some basic licencing installed that'll let you do a limited amount, as mentioned previously, the software is the same for both, just a different licence key to make it a VCS-Control, VCS-Expressway, Expressway-Core or Expressway-Edge when you implement them for real (and each option gives different numbers of licenced features and call licences as well).

With the demo version, you get 1 Non-Traversal Call, 1 Traversal Call and 3 Registrations.

The one download can be used

The one download can be used to create either a C or an E - which one it becomes depends on the licence keys you install.
