If you would like to get support from Cisco on your CUCM (call manager) servers or get a new software maintenance release, you will need to know where in Cisco's lifecycle process your version of CUCM falls. There have been some recent changes in End-of-Support status for the CUCM 4.x versions that effect a lot of installations. So, I've put together the table below for quick reference, but make sure you check the actual announcement and/or your Cisco Rep for an official stance.

The table above references the status of the CUCM software only. You'll want to also consider the support status of the hardware which is running the software. This can vary widely and I'm not going to get into that beyond listing the two announcements below. Just make sure that you consider it.

I do not work for or represent Cisco in any way. So, make sure you contact your Cisco sales representative or Cisco directly if you need to get clarification on the status of any of your call manager software versions or the hardware that runs it.
