Vyopta provides options for Cisco PCA end of life

Customers of nearly 100 different Cisco collaboration products now know the clock is ticking to find an alternative solution for Prime Collaboration Assurance and Analytics (PCA) and its monitoring of underlying unified communications infrastructure.

The end of Cisco PCA has been long known with the end of sale of most SKUs for PCA now slated for this October and end of support coming on Oct. 31, 2024. While Cisco does not have a replacement product in line for PCA, Vyopta has been selected as a preferred vendor for Cisco Prime Collaboration Assurance and Analytics.

Cisco PCA has long served as a needed service to effectively manage voice and video quality for Cisco Unified Communications, Cisco TelePresence, and the underlying network infrastructure. It ensured customers had the premiere collaboration experience they needed and with Cisco PCA end of life approaching, Vyopta can replace Cisco PCA for customers who want to support and make the most of their Cisco investment for many years to come.

Rather than waiting and  facing a short runway to migrate to an alternative solution, now is the time for Cisco customers to turn to Vyopta, a next-generation data and analytics platform that optimizes usage of UC assets to deliver better quality to users, and provide the intelligence needed to make the best possible UC investments going forward. Special pricing is available to support a cost-effective transition.
