Hello!

 

I would like to welcome you to UC Migration Week and Ask the Expert.  I am the Program Lead for our Drive to Collab Upgrade Program where we are looking to assist our partners and customers in migrating to our latest CUCM versions and take advantage of our latest capabilities and experiences.  Let me know if you have any questions on upgrades, reasons to upgrade, and our programs.


One item I would like to highlight is our Upgrade App.  If you're not familiar with it can help you tremendously with upgrade planning.  This app will essentially check your CUCM enviroment and:

  • Inventory key items such as server hardware, phones, and gateways
  • Check software versions and compatibility of key applications (e.g.  Unity Connection, MeetingPlace, CCX, etc)
  • Determine license counts to send to our licensing team
  • Recommend actions required prior to upgrade
  • Provide upgrade procedures specific to your scenario.

 

Running this app (available for for iPads, Android Tablets, and Windows applications) can save you significant time and help you better prepare for your upgrade.
