Complete set of CUCM (Cisco Unified Communications Manager) ISO Images (Installation Files)

This set of ISO Images are meant for installation in VMware Environments (ESXi or WorkStation)

The minimum version of ESXi needed to install CUCM is version 6.5

There are several versions of CUCM (12.0, 12.5 and 14.0)

The highest version of CUCM is currently 14.0.

However, CUCM 12.5 is still the version most widely in current Production Environments.
For that reason we provide 12.5 ISO Images by default.

But if you prefer a different version, please select the desired version from the Drop-Down Menu

Server's Minimum Requirements:

Your Server must meet Cisco's minimum requirements for CUCM, that include:

- 2 x Quad Core Processors
- 32GB RAM (min. Memory size)
- 500GB Hard Drive (min. HD size required)

The more RAM you have in your Server, the faster the loading and response times for the different CUCM components.

Please note that to install CUCM 12.5, it's necessary to use VMware ESXi 6.5 (or higher)

And to install CUCM 14.0, it's necessary to use VMware ESXi 6.7 (or higher)

CUCM 12.5 won't work on ESXi 6.0 (or below) and CUCM 14 won't work on ESXi 6.5

Virtualization for Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM)

CUCM Components:

CUCM includes the following main components:

- Cisco Unified Communications Manager Publisher (PUB)
- Cisco Unified Communications Manager Subscriber (SUB)
- Cisco Unified Communication Manager IM & Presence (CUPS)
- Cisco Unity Connections (UC)

As a Bonus you'll also get the ISO Images for UCCX (Cisco Unified Contact Center Express)

You'll receive a UCCX version that matches the proper CUCM version.

Software will be available for download. A download Link will be sent to you after purchase.

You'll also receive the ISO Installation Files for Windows Server (180 Days Evaluation)

There are several versions of Windows Server (2012, 2016, 2019) and you'll receive ALL of them.

Windows Server can be used to configure a Domain Controller (DC) in order to provide
Active Directory Domain Services for authentication purposes.

The main advantage of installing the original ISO Files is that you'll be able choose your own configuration Parameters such as IP Addressing Scheme and other configuration options.

But if the IP Addressing Scheme is not too important and if you would rather save some time, then we would recommend getting our pre-configured CUCM Software OVA Images.


The CUCM Software has a Demo License meant for Training Purposes only (Non-Commercial)

CUCM version 12.x has expiration period of 90 days. All other versions are valid for only 60 days.

This item also includes some basic Installation Instructions and Videos.
