VCS-C & E migration to BE6K


I am looking to specify a move from Gen 1 VCS-C & E to BE6K for one of our customers.


The customer has 5 room based end-points (MX200, MX300, E20 & QSC20) with licenses for up to 5 concurrent external calls and 10 internal calls.


From the Cisco VCS to Unified Communications License Migration Program I think I will use BE6M-M5-K9; R-CBE6K-K9 & R-VCS2EXPWY-E-K9 SKU’s.


That gets their end-points licensed onto VCS 8.9 with 5 x VCS-E Rich Media Session licenses.


I note that Traversal Call licenses included with a VCS-C purchase are not eligible for migration, maybe I don't need these if they are registered to UCM?


Can you let me know what else I need to include if anything to migrate this system and the licenses?

Also they are looking for new Desktop Video devices so is DX80 best as DX70 is notified EoS?

    1) When you get RMS licensing which is the new conversion for traversal licensing, it gets applied on C and E for one call. Reason Cisco doesn't allow converting traversal licensing for VCS-C is because back in the day VCS-C was licensed based on non traversal licensing and traversal licensing was included in the bundle at no cost and it was quite a high number like 100 or something. So converting all that RMS which is a paid license won't make any sense so only stuff customer paid for which is the traversal on E should be converted is the logic


    2) DX80 is good and would take ENH


    3) So on VCS-C today you can convert current room systems to TP room, Movi to ENH/ENHP


    Jabber Video for TelePresence/Movi client licenses (in TMS with LIC-TMS-PE-xx or LIC-MOVI-xx) are a concurrent use license based model. Some customers may oversubscribe the number of licenses. UCL and CUWL licenses are user based. For this reason up to 3 UCL Enhanced or Enhanced Plus licenses may be ordered for every Movi client license in TMS. Note that SWSS is added for every UCL license ordered.
