companion Cisco Catalyst Express 520 Switch and connect phones to the new PoE Ethernet
ports.
Integrated voicemail and
Automated Attendant
Voice messaging raises the level of professionalism, productivity, and customer service available
to small business customers with built-in Automated Attendant and advanced voicemail
capabilities.
With Professional Automated Attendant, all calls can be handled efficiently and reliably 24 hours a
day. Callers can dial by extension number of the group or person they are trying to reach or use
the Dial-by-Name feature when they do not know a specific extension.
Voicemail extends your organization’s productivity by allowing employees to access messages at
any time from any telephone. Both internal and external calls to a busy or unattended phone are
forwarded to the user’s voice mailbox and are greeted with the user’s personalized greeting.
Integrated messaging allows you to check your voicemail using Internet Mail Access Protocol
(IMAP) email clients, including Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, or Lotus Notes. You can also
access voicemail features using the XML display on Cisco Unified IP phones.
Ethernet connectivity
with quality of service
(QoS)
Ethernet connectivity is provided for IP phones or wireless access points by PoE ports that
provide connectivity speeds for up to 100BASE-T Ethernet technology without the need for
additional power modules. Most Cisco Unified IP phones include a 10/100 switch with QoS to
provide PC desktop connectivity to the network.
Optimized QoS is provided for IP phone and desktop configurations. The QoS level helps ensure
that voice over IP (VoIP) traffic takes precedence.
Voice and data traffic have separate VLANs.
Port security limits unauthorized access to the network.
Power failover
A power failover feature on the base configuration allows access to the PSTN line if a power
outage occurs. When power is lost, the first foreign exchange office (FXO) PSTN trunk is directly
connected to foreign exchange station (FXS) analog port, allowing for calls to be placed and
received.
Recorded
announcements for
callers: music on hold
(MOH)
The process for providing customized MOH announcements is simplified with a dedicated MOH
port, allowing small-business owners to play recorded announcements to their callers by simply
plugging the audio source into the provided 3.5-mm mini-jack.
You can also use .wav files stored on flash memory of the system.
MOH is an audio stream that is played to PSTN and VoIP G.711 or G.729 callers who are placed
on hold, reassuring the callers that they are still connected to the called party.
Deployment options
Depending on the configuration, the Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series can be deployed
as a desktop unit, wall-mounted, or installed in a standard 19-inch (48.26-cm) rack with an
optional rack-mount kit.
The Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series can be deployed in a wired (standard)
configuration, using the LAN wiring to connect the system components. As an alternative, the
Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series can be deployed in a wireless-only configuration with
the Cisco Small Business Pro IP Phone SPA525G, eliminating the need for cables and making
deployment easier.
