Cisco Unity Express provides these integrated services specifically designed for the small and medium-sized office environment. With Cisco Unity Express, users can easily and conveniently manage their voice messages and greetings with intuitive telephone prompts, an easy-to-use visual voicemail interface (VoiceView Express), and a straightforward GUI that allows simple administration and management.
Cisco Unity Express is an essential component of either a Cisco Unified Communications Manager or Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express solution. In a Cisco Unified Communications Manager environment, Cisco Unity Express provides local storage and processing of integrated messaging, voicemail, fax, automated attendant, and optional IVR for branch offices with limited WAN connectivity, thereby alleviating concerns about WAN bandwidth and quality of service (QoS). Additionally, Cisco Unified Communications Manager customers with Cisco Unity messaging solutions at their larger locations can use Cisco Unity Express at their branch or small-office locations and network the solutions so that employees can easily send messages between locations. In a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express environment, customers deploy a single compact-form-factor Cisco ISR platform with Cisco Unity Express installed to meet their office telephony and messaging needs, as well as their other business communications needs.
