Cisco IP Voice Professional ServicesSending real-time voice and video over Internet Protocol (VoIP and Video over IP) has advanced from simply being being a shrewd way to reduce phone bills to being a required tool for productive collaboration. Converged communications, once restricted to combining Internet-based voice calls and faxing on a single system to take the place of traditional PBX equipment, now incorporates rich media, mobile communications, instant messaging, presence, collaboration services, and much more in a cohesive environment that is easy to manage, scalable, secure, resilient, economical, and user friendly.

Cisco is the leader in providing the hardware and software infrastructure for supporting the new paradigm of unified communications (UC). Cisco's unified communications solution enhances the productivity of IT networks by slashing operating costs; combining rich media functions with familiar software programs to improve user output; supporting collaboration among employees, associates, and suppliers to save effort and improve business outcomes; and streamlining the management of your communications environment.

Cisco's Unified Communications technology cover these main product areas:,

  • Call Control Platforms for controlling rich media calls and sessions
  • IP Phones and Softphones to optimize worker engagement
  • UC Software Applications for easy access to real-time, chat, voice and video, voice messages, white boarding, and voice/video conferencing
  • IP Gateways for interfacing with outside networks and remote users
Progent can provide the remote or onsite services of a Cisco-certified CCIE specialist who can help organizations of any size to plan, install, manage, upgrade, expand, relocate, and repair Cisco UC products so you can realize the greatest strategic advantage of your UC investment. Progent can provide expert support for every element of Cisco's unified communications solutions such as call processing and control tools, VoIP and softphones, and teleconferencing software. Progent also offers consulting and support for Cisco's realtime media-optimized infrastructure including Integrated Services routers, Catalyst and Nexus switches, ASA firewalls, and IP voice gateways.

Call Control Agents - Unified Communications Manager (CallManager)
Cisco Collaborative Communications ConsultantsThe call-processing agent is the centerpiece of the Cisco IP telephony infrastructure and gives you the flexibility to implement a central call-processing model, a decentralized design, or a combination of both. In a centralized approach, Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UC Manager or CUCM) expands corporate telephony features to packet telephony products such as IP handsets, media management products, VoIP gateways, and multimedia applications throughout the IT environment. Cisco Unified Communications Manager supports extra voice, video, and data services including unified messaging, video conferencing, and collaborative client interaction networks.

The latest version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, previously branded CallManager, offers a wealth of enhancements that speed up your return on investment by cutting administrative and maintenance expenses, improving user output, enhancing collaboration, supporting the bring-your-own-device style of working, fortifying data protection, and allowing efficient use of network resources. Headline innovations include automatic dial-plan replication and batch provisioning, simplified certificate management, expanded support for standards-based single sign-on for managers and end users, hardware-agnostic call recording, mobile access with no need for VPN, a new self-provisioning interface that makes it simple for end users to manage their preferences for all endpoint devices, and support for Transport Layer Security and Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol for mobile users.

In cases where you implement a centralized Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster to control voice processing for customers at remote sites, IT managers can help ensure non-stop phone operation using Cisco SRST, an IOS Software image for routers. If a Wide Area Network connection fails, Cisco Survivable Remote Site Telephony incorporated in the router provides basic Unified Communications Manager services until the connection is returned. For information about Progent's consulting support services for Cisco routers, see consulting and troubleshooting support services for Cisco ISR routers.

For small business networks, branch locations, and retail deployments that do not need the full functionality offered by Unified CM, Unified Communications Manager Express, previously named CallManager Express offers a budget-friendly solution that meets the requirements of sites with up to 450 workers. Since Unified Communications Manager Express Unified Communications Manager Express (Unified CCX) is built into the IOS Software running on a Cisco ISR router, smaller offices can rapidly deploy a converged voice/data environment.

Cisco's BE6000 is a family of one-stop solutions that offer fundamental collaboration features including routing, IP gateway, high definition voice/video, messaging, IM and real-time presence, teleconferencing, and paging services, enabling any end user to collaborate on any endpoint device from anywhere. All Business Edition 6000 systems are delivered preinstalled with a virtualization hypervisor and Unified Communications applications, making implementation quick and easy and cutting cost of ownership for companies with up to 1000 employees. All BE6000 systems come packaged preconfigured with a virtualization hypervisor and collaboration applications software. You can simply activate UC applications as their needs grow.

The small-scale Business Edition 6000S supports five preselected unified communications applications preloaded on a single combination router/IP gateway/virtualized E1600 M2 server platform and supports a maximum capacity of 150 workers and 300 devices. The medium-scale Business Edition 6000M supports four UC software application options activated on a virtualized Cisco C220 M4 server platform and supports a maximum capacity of 1000 users, 1200 endpoint devices, and 100 contact center agents. The high-end BE6000S Supports 8 collaboration application options activated on a single virtualized Cisco C220 M4 server platform and supports as many as 1000 workers, 2500 devices, and 100 contact center agents.

IP Phones: IP Voice and IP Media Endpoints
An IP communications endpoint is an end-user device, and can be a physical phone or a soft phone application that runs on a PC or handheld computer. In the IP environment, every VoIP phone is Ethernet connected. Voice over IP phones offer all of the features that a conventional telephone has, but Voice over IP phones can also have extra functions such as being able to connect to websites or run business software.

Cisco Voice over IP Phones ConsultantsUnlike ordinary PBX technology, in a Cisco IP communications environment you can perform virtually instantaneous relocations, adds, and modifications. You simply take the IP handset to your new spot, plug it into the Ethernet jack, and the phone announces itself with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. All client privileges and configurations are automatically replicated, eliminating the expense and delay of dispatching technicians to rewire connections. Another useful feature is extension mobility, which allows you to log into any Cisco VoIP device and receive your own phone ID and rights.

Unified Communications Applications
Within Cisco's Unified Communications architecture, IP voice, IP video, and other converged applications are separate from the call- and voice-processing mechanism, and they may reside anywhere within the system. A single network framework provides a versatile platform for powerful business applications and provides a firm basis for downstream convergence-based software. Cisco works with third-party technology vendors to provide a broad selection of IP phone and IP video applications and devices. Cisco also supports the capability to develop and administer specialized in-house programs.
