HP has created a set of HP-branded ProLiant server configurations that mirror Cisco-branded models used for Unified Communications. These special part numbers allow Cisco customers and partners to order directly from HP or an HP reseller to obtain a supported system. The appropriate Cisco applications can then be purchased directly from the Cisco® Unified Communications portfolio and installed on specific configurations of HP DL380-G5 and DL320-G5p servers.

Available applications include: Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Emergency Responder, Cisco Unified Application Environment, Cisco Unity® conferencing, Cisco Unity Connection, Cisco Unified Presence, Cisco Unified Mobility Advantage, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace® conferencing, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express, Cisco Unified Contact Center Express, Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise, Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal, Cisco Unified IP Interactive Voice Response (IP IVR), and Cisco Unified Expert Advisor.

Note that these servers must exactly match the HP make, model, specifications and parts lists in the configurations listed in the following sections to be supported. Deviations are not supported, and may result in an incomplete or failed install, or post installation problems. Customer-provided servers must also be on the certified hardware compatibility list for the intended software product and version.

Where equivalent Cisco MCS 7800 Media Convergence Server model numbers are given, they should be interpreted as the configurations used by Cisco Unified Communications Manager. The same MCS model used for other applications (where the MCS model has a different suffix) may use different components and specifications. For more details, go to the HP Server Solutions page on Cisco.com.

HP General Ordering Instructions
HP has created special part numbers for Cisco customers and partners to order these servers directly from HP or from an HP partner. These part numbers contain a complete, tested server that satisfies Cisco’s UC configuration requirements. The list of components in each of these PNs is shown in the tables below, but are provided only as a reference.

While these special HP part numbers are orderable from HP, because they are special configurations created specifically for the support of the Cisco UC applications, they may not appear in many of the traditional HP sources of information such as Quickspecs, the Product Bulletin, etc. Please advise your HP account manager, HP inside sales representative, or HP partner accordingly and that person should be able to locate and quote these part numbers.

HP International Ordering Additional Instructions
These configurations are manufactured only in the United States but can be shipped globally. To order, you should follow your standard local ordering process. If you have any questions, please contact your local HP sales representative or HP partner.

HP’s global “Fusion” enterprise-resource-planning (ERP) system is linked and regions outside the US can place orders for fulfillment from HP plant 5200 (Houston, Tx). Shipments are routed to regional distribution hubs prior to delivery to the respective customer in the destination (ordering) country
