These actions should be as simple as a phone call or as secure as sending an . Yet today, rich media collaboration is not universal, and found only within islands.For example, typically, rich media collaboration is confined to an enterprise location or to users on the same network or using the same kind of application and/or device. Rich media collaboration often breaks down when employees leave their office or reach out to suppliers, customers or partners who are not using the same systems, networks or devices.Complicating things further is the number of devices (company and employee-owned). Key barriers are:Usability – the technology must be intuitive and simple for end-usersIncompatible or proprietary systems, applications and/or endpointsSecurity and deploy-ability – must be secure and cost-effective to deployThese barriers force people to collaborate at a lower or the lowest common denominator like, using a phone or , despite video or another collaboration mode being more productive and efficient. The opportunity to gain competitive advantages in todays’ challenging economy from stronger, deeper relationships and faster decision making can be lost.What is Cisco Collaboration Edge Architecture?Cisco Collaboration Edge Architecture is a set of features and services that helps enable any to any collaboration. It lays the foundation for our customers, no matter what their size, to collaborate with anyone anywhere, on any device using any workload. Its success relies on simplicity, security and open standards/interoperability to break down barriers between these islands.The Collaboration Edge Architecture supports a broad set of use cases:Remote and Mobile Worker Collaboration – extends and simplifies collaboration outside the corporate network for remote and mobile workers. Allows them to securely collaborate like they are in the office on any device anywhere, without requiring a separate VPN client and connection from your device to the networkB2B and B2C Collaboration – borderless rich media collaboration with outside organizations & consumersIP PSTN & PSTN Connectivity - communicate with anyone via service provider TDM or SIP trunkingIntra-Enterprise Connectivity –extend collaboration services within the enterprise to users on PBXs, IP PBXs and 3rd party devices – even analog devicesCloud Connectivity – seamlessly connect to the cloud and enjoy all of the “any to any” benefits of Cisco premise-based solutionsThese use cases are enabled by products throughout our portfolio to provide the best user experiences and the broadest reach. Products include Cisco Gateways, Cisco Expressway, capabilities within Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Business Edition , Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) to name a few.Cisco UnifiedCommunicationsManagerSeamless User ExperiencesSimple, Secure AccessNo One Left Behind

12 How Expressway Traversal Works… Enterprise NetworkDMZOutside NetworkInternetUCMExpresswayCFirewallExpresswayEFirewallSignalingMediaExpressway E is the traversal server installed in DMZ. Expressway C is the traversal client installed inside the enterprise network.Expressway C initiates traversal connections outbound through the firewall to specific ports on Expressway E with secure login credentials.Once the connection has been established, Expressway C sends keep-alive packets to Expressway E to maintain the connectionWhen Expressway E receives an incoming call, it issues an incoming call request to Expressway C.Expressway C then routes the call to UCM to reach the called user or endpointThe call is established and media traverses the firewall securely over an existing traversal connection

38 Edge Server Authentication No matter which client authentication model is deployed, server authentication is always performed by the remote devicei.e. remote Jabber clients and remote endpoints will always validate the Expressway E Server Certificate presented in the TLS handshakeJabber Clients will rely on the underlying platform trusted CA listTelePresence Endpoints will rely on a trusted CA list included in firmwareNo CTL requirement for Edge Server authentication
39 Expressway E Server Certificates Expressway C Server CertificatesExpressway E Server Certificates will need to be signed by 3rd party Public CAPublic CA signed certificates allow Jabber clients and endpoints to validate the server certificate without a CTLNote: Jabber clients with a CTL will not use the CTL to validate Expressway certificateExpressway C server certificates can be signed by 3rd party Public CA or Enterprise CAExpressway C server certificates need to include an extension allowing for client authenticationNo support for wildcard certificatesNo requirement to include Expressway certs in UCM’s CTLX.509v3

46 Expressway Remote Access from UCM Perspective Remote access provided by Expressway is, for the most part, transparent to UCMThink SIP line integration, versus SIP trunkNo requirement to build a SIP trunk on UCM to VCS Control or ExpresswayRemote Jabber clients or TelePresence Endpoints registering to UCM through Expressway will appear to UCM as Expressway-C IP addressNo remote access policy mechanism to limit edge access to certain Jabber users or devicesThere will be a COP file made available for UCM 9.1 customers deploying Expressway remote and mobile access in production environments, shouldn’t be required for labs or POCs
47 Interaction with existing VCS-C --- SIP trunk --- UCM SIP Trunk can interfere with remote registrationsSIP trunk is not required between VCS and UCM for Expressway Remote Access deploymentHowever, if UCM has an existing SIP trunk configured for VCS-C, UCM will reject any SIP registration attempts from remote Jabber or TP endpoints, as the register method is not accepted on UCM SIP trunk interfaceUpdate UCM SIP trunk security profile to listen on ports other than TCP 5060 or (you could use 5560, 5561, etc.)Port change allows for SIP trunk integration + Expressway remote accessInside firewall (Intranet)DMZOutside firewall (Public Internet)Collaboration ServicesInternetUnified CMVCS ControlVCS ExpresswaySIP Video EndpointsH.323 Video Endpoints
48 UDS Directory SearchAll Jabber clients connecting via Expressway will use UDS for directory search (assuming UCM IM&P deployment)TelePresence endpoints always use UDS for directory searchFor the best contact search experience, all Enterprise Users should be imported into every UCM cluster’s end user tableHome cluster check box needs to be selected on only one cluster for each userUCM clusters support 80K end users, and can scale as high as 160K with BU megacluster approval
49 UCM Bulk Certificate Management Tool used to simplify UCM Cluster certificate exchangeAll Clusters export TFTP (CallManager), Tomcat, and CAPF certificates to central SFTP serverCertificates are consolidated into PKCS12 filesConsolidated set of certificates are then imported to each publisherCisco Certificate Change Notification Service replicates trusted certificates throughout the clusterExport:This step creates a PKCS12 file that contains certificates for all nodes in the cluster.Every participating cluster must export certificates to the same SFTP server and SFTP directory.A cluster must export its certificates whenever the Tomcat, TFTP, CAPF certificate(s) are regenerated on any of its nodes.Consolidate:This step consolidates all PKCS12 files in the SFTP server to form a single file.Only one of the participating clusters needs to perform consolidation.If new certificates are exported after they are consolidated, consolidation needs to be performed again to pick up the newly exported certificates.Import:This step imports the consolidated PKCS12 files from the SFTP server into the local cluster.All clusters should re-import when any participating cluster makes an export.Perform import after a central administrator consolidates the certificates.SFTP Server

58 Competitive Positioning: MSFT Lync 2013 IssueMSFT claimCisco PositionCostIt’s freeAttack: There are significant acquisition costs for MSFT Edge architecture (as much as $20-40K). These costs include servers, load-balancers, server software, etc. Cisco has included Collaboration Edge functionality in UCL enhanced, CUWL Standard and CUWL Pro for UCM 9.1 and aboveAdoption of H.264 SVCEverything else is legacyAttack: SVC is a small piece of the puzzle. MSFT can’t talk to existing technology without Cisco. Any IT strategy which introduces new technology should always include a plan for interop.VPN-less architectureNo need for clunky old VPN. Cisco doesn’t get it – they just want to sell you network.Attack: Don’t concede this point. First VPN has applicability, and should be used in certain cases. Second, Cisco has had a TLS based architecture for this application since about 2007.Mobile Supportsupports Windows Phone, iOS, and Android devices – IM, “Lync call” and “one touch” Lync meetingNeutralize: Jabber leverages common call control, video codec, and cross-platform libraries to create consistent collaboration features on all it’s platforms.Alpha-numeric URI…rather than an [old] phone numberNeutralize: UCM and Expressway are fully alpha-numeric compatibleSSO w/ADNeutralize: SAML-based SSO mandated across all CTG infrastructure. See roadmapFederation w/SkypeLync presence, IM, and peer-to-peer voice w/Skype usersNeutralize: No video support. Also, interop requires potentially costly 3rd party provider.

Final UI subject to change.
61 Cisco Jabber: Leading User Experience Across Broadest Range of Platforms, Devices … Enterprise & Guest UsersDesktopTabletSmartphoneWebNEW PRODUCT – Jabber Guest …Jabber for public to enterprise calls from desktop browsers & mobile devicesPROOF of CONCEPT …Web version of Jabber for enterprise usersEnterprise UsersNo support for VCS registered end-pointsAnother unique differentiator of Jabber is that it works on such a broad range of platforms, browsers, and devices. You get broad capabilities and a consistent experience across leading platforms and devices, including PCs, Macs, tablets (e.g. iPad, Cius) and smart phones (iPhone, Android, Blackberry).You get a rich collaboration experience from anywhere and can choose when, how, and on what device to interact. People want flexibility in how they work with a user experience that is intuitive, uncomplicated and consistent across devices. Cisco believes this is accomplished only with a unified architectural approach in which our Collaboration suite in a common user interface hosted on a network that is media-ready. The result is the right communication experience for the task at hand. Providing capabilities that span Presence, IM, voice, video, conferencing across different devices lets users choose the right communications experience for the task at hand.Consistent user-interface and experience across devices and features, spend more time collaborating and less time learning “how to”. This leads to increased adoption across the collaboration portfolio and better/faster ROI.By running on a wide range of devices and platforms, Cisco Jabber (and WebEx) lets organizations address new BYOD device ownership models, where employees want to use enterprise apps on their personal devices. Leading organizations support multiple platforms, browsers, and devices because that’s what their brightest and best want.With the Cisco Jabber Software Development Kit (SDK), you can integrate Cisco Unified Communications capabilities into any web application-easily and quickly. Application developers, customers, and partners alike can take advantage of this powerful SDK to incorporate voice, video, instant messaging (IM), presence, voice messaging, and conferencing capabilities. Use the power of the web browser to connect, communicate, and collaborate within your line of business application or web portal. You'll save time, streamline workflows, and increase workforce collaboration and productivity.Via Jabber SDK Today
