High capacity: Supports up to 100 users with the base model - any mix - and up to 300 users with the new pluggable Capacity Expansion Card (CEC).
Operability: Several significant operability enhancements build upon a solid foundation, established by previous releases from the Business Communications Manager portfolio, including the Business Communications Manager 50 Release 3.0. Some of the key improvements include new capabilities for Business Element Manager that make the initial installation and ongoing management easier, new GUI-based System Reset and Reboot Optimization functions, and a comprehensive task-based Troubleshooting Guide for all operations on the Business Communications Manager system.
Simplified hardware platform: New Business Communications Manager hardware components, including the Base Function Tray (BFT), Chassis Interface Board (CIB) and Capacity Expansion Card (CEC), simplify installation, connectivity and expandability.
Robust business applications: The addition of Meet-Me Conferencing (MMC) and further enhancements made to Intelligent Contact Center (ICC) and Unified Messaging (UM) round out an already impressive suite of rich features and capabilities.
