Products are part of a lifecycle and await the day they are either labeled end-of-life or targeted for an upgrade. Your endpoints and CUCM are not immune to this reality.
The typical recommendation for products at the end of their lifecycle is to rip and replace them. Ripping out and replacing endpoints can be costly and unaffordable for many companies, especially if many of your endpoints are end of life. Upgrading your CUCM can also be expensive, but on the flipside, doing nothing can put your system and business at considerable risk. Maintenance and reliability risks coupled with no security fixes or critical bug resolution can spell disaster for a company. Similarly, new endpoints may not be backwards compatible so they will not work with your current CUCM version and applications may not be compatible with your version.
Questions to Consider
1. If your endpoints are operating without any issues and are meeting your business needs, do you want to dispose of them?
2. If the latest CUCM upgrade falls short of what other systems are offering for the same price, would you settle?
Explore a Different Road
Deltapath differentiates itself from other UC companies by making your business investments work longer because that’s what your company deserves. We support end of life models up to the latest endpoints.
For example, when you upgrade to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, release 14, you will not be able to use the following phone models:
EOL Cisco Phone Models With Release 14
With release 14, you will also not be able to use any of the EOL phone models announced in Release 12.0(x) and Release 11.5(x).
|Release||EOL Cisco Phone Models|
Deltapath supports over 50% of the Cisco phone models that are end of life in releases 14, 12.0x, and 11.5x. In addition, the nucleus of Deltapath’s UC platform is interoperability. That means our unified communication platform allows different brands of endpoints such as Cisco, Avaya, and other brands to coexist and work with each other seamlessly.
