Since the beginning 2011 Cisco augmented its VoIP telephony portfolio with the Unified Communications 300 Series, an universal unit with a small space requirement that designed to minimize complexity with intuitive deployment and handling and being sold at affordable price.
The UC300 Series is the integral element of Cisco’s Foundational Unified Communications (UC) package designed to ensure basic or foundational UC features for small businesses, normally voice, data and wireless integration, added with some essential integrated messaging applications. Cisco’s previous Unified Communications 500 Series (UC500) is also specifically created for smaller businesses, but stands in line of company’s Advanced UC offering which has a more advanced feature set such as support for video, applications integration and enhanced security and mobility. The UC320W is the only available firmware as the operational platform in the UC300 Series. UC320W is the VoIP system that supports 2-24 users at a single premise and integrates traditional wired telephony (can be configured in a Key or PBX mode), but also has integrated voicemail and automated attendant with voicemail to e-mail notification, one built-in 802.11b/g/n wireless access point, a 4-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and a Gigabit Ethernet WAN port. UC320W backs up SIP trunking, as well as Cisco gateways for connectivity to 12 public switched telephone network (PSTN) lines (FXO), including up to nine analog phones. The system supports Cisco SPA 300 and SPA 500 Series IP phones, consisting with the two entry-level IP phones: the basic non-display 1-line SPA 301 and the 3-line SPA 303 with asset of sophisticated features. Five SPA 500 Series phones introduced before are also available, including the SPA525G2 with color display and universal types of connectivity. All Cisco SPA Series phones are equipped with dual protocol support, implementing SIP with the Cisco UC300 Series and third-party call controllers, or using Cisco’s Smart Phone Control Protocol (SPCP) with the Cisco UC500 Series. Since its advent in February 2011, the Cisco UC320W phones have been updated with two new releases. Version 2.0.9 in June 2011 added a new Support Tools segment to the system’s Status module, allowing administrators to enable, view and download system logs and to test IP connectivity. The latest Version 2.1.1 is a more significant release and makes a number of new features, such as more languages, dedicated region packs, increased memory capacity, group paging and others. Cisco UC320W is available now in North America, EMEA, APAC and CALA regions and lists for $US995, including the hardware, software and licenses for 24 users, as well as a one-year hardware warranty and 90 days of software support which can be extended for three years with the Small Business Support Service.
