Cisco Public IP Telephony What is Cisco CallManager Express? Cisco CME Trunks WAN Call processing for small to medium sized deployments VoIP integrated solution Up to 120 IP phones IOS based solution PSTN Cisco CallManager Express (CME) is an integrated call-processing solution, based on Cisco midrange access routers using Cisco IOS software, that delivers telephony services for 10 to 100 users in small offices. Cisco CME is part of Cisco IP Communication Solution and works in conjunction with the extended Cisco Systems® product portfolio, including routers, data switches, public telephone switched network (PSTN) gateways, gatekeepers, Cisco Unity voice mail, and analog terminal adapters. Cisco CME delivers a robust set of telephony features similar to those commonly used by business users. Cisco CME is an optional feature of Cisco IOS Software and is available on a wide range of Cisco access routers supporting as many as 120 phones. This allows customers to take advantage of the benefits of IP communications without the higher costs and complexity of deploying a server-based solution. Because the solution is based on the Cisco access router and Cisco IOS software, it is simple to deploy and manage, especially for customers who already use Cisco IOS software products. Cisco CME allows customers to scale IP telephony to a small or branch office site with a solution that is easy to deploy, administer, and maintain. Copyright © 2005, Cisco Systems, Inc.

How Does Cisco CallManager Express Work? This topic describes how Cisco CME system works. The Cisco CME system provides the PBX-like features and functions for the IP phones. These features are a result of the concept of a centralized point of control and intelligence. The Cisco CME router provides all of the call control and intelligence needed for the IP phones to place and receive calls. In a Cisco CME deployment, the IP phones are not capable of setting up a call by themselves. In fact, the IP phones are totally under the control of the Cisco CME system and are instructed how to place or receive a call.
