Cisco Unified Presence License
Cisco Unified Presence License (CUP)is a standards-based enterprise platform that brings people together in and across organizations in the most effective way. This open and extensible platform facilitates the highly secure exchange of presence and instant messaging (IM) information between Cisco Unified Communications and other applications. Cisco Unified Communications Solutions unify voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed and mobile networks, enabling easy collaboration every time from any workspace.
Cisco Unified Presence(CUP) provides native dual-protocol enterprise instant messaging (IM) and network-based presence as part of Cisco Unified Communications. This secure, scalable, and easy-to-manage solution offers users feature-rich communications capabilities both within and external to the enterprise. Cisco Unified Presence is tightly integrated with Cisco and third-party compatible desktop and mobile presence and IM clients, including Cisco Jabber.
It enables these clients to perform numerous functions such as instant messaging, presence, click to call, phone control, voice, video, visual voicemail, and web collaboration. Cisco Unified Presence offers customers and partners the flexibility of rich, open interfaces that allow enablement of IM and Cisco rich, network-based presence for a wide variety of business applications.
