Cisco have ensured complete co-existence with on-premise hardware and cloud delivered solutions. Flex is designed to enable you to migrate to the Cisco Cloud (UCM or Webex Calling) at your own pace, all while lowering costs. Support is built into the subscription so you will no longer require SWSS
Your existing on-prem UCM and BE6K perpetual licences map to a Flex User Subscription which provides greater value(more features) and also includes SWSS. Users can reside either on-prem, in the cloud or a combination of the two(hybrid)
