Hi, imagine on a large organization you already have a voip system up and running.
Then you decide to deploy a video conferencing system.
In general, how much configuration do you expect to perform in order to deploy the video over IP successfully? Should I expect to do mainly client configuration in order to watch the video conferencing, or that is going to require router/switch configuration as well to accomodate the video traffic?
It depends on the type and volume of video conferencing you're talking about. If you're referring to point to point conferencing using VT advantage, the configuration will be minimal. If you're referring to multipoint conferencing using a conference controller(s), the configuration becomes more complex. With any video, it's necessary to configure QoS throughout the network. This will certainly involve router/switch configuration in order to classify, mark, and honor the markings of video traffic.
Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.
