CUDN v Octel Cisco Unity Bridge VPIM Analog to Octel About Cisco Unity Bridge Gateway between Cisco Unity and Octel node on Octel analog network Bridge communicates with –Octel node using Octel analog protocol –Cisco Unity using digital networking A separate license from the Cisco Unity license –In multiple Cisco Unity installations, only one server needs to be configured for Cisco Unity Bridge (bridgehead). –Message traffic may dictate multiple Cisco Unity Bridge servers for load balancing. Cisco Unity Bridge is installed on a dedicated hardware platform.

Octel networking is the networking between Octel nodes over a proprietary protocol. Cisco Unity bridge networking is the ability to use Cisco Unity Bridge to send messages between the Cisco Unity and Avaya networks. Cisco Unity bridge networking with a remote Cisco Unity Bridge means that Cisco Unity Bridge can be located across the WAN so that it can be collocated with the Avaya system. Multi-node Octel networking is defined as multiple Octel nodes networked together. Cisco Unity Bridge in Multinode Octel networking allows the Bridge to act like part of the Octel network so that it is treated like a peer.

Collapsing a node means removing an Octel node and replacing it with a Cisco Unity node that will use Cisco Unity Bridge to communicate with the remaining Octel network. Avaya Interchange can take on the function of a protocol translator, taking in VPIM and AMIS, then translating the information to the Octel networking format. Cisco Unity Bridge can be a part of multinode Octel networking with Interchange. When collapsing a node with Interchange, Cisco Unity Bridge will look like an Octel node, and the collapsed node will use Cisco Unity Bridge to get to the Octel network. Using Avaya Interchange and other Avaya products, it is possible to create a digital Octel network (Octel to Octel).
