Tandberg MXP6000 with CCM5.1

Unanswered Question
Oct 11th, 2007

I am evaluating the possibility of purchasing Tandberg's MXP6000, however the specs seems to say it requires Tandbergs GW and GK

I currently do not have a GK, and since the Tandberg device supports H323, I am wondering if I can make MXP6000 use my existing CCM5.1 GW

I have this problem too.

I looked at the Data Sheet for the Tandberg 6000 MXP and it looks like the device is a true H.323 endpoint.

Technically you could register this to Call Manager directly as an H.323 client. I have done this with other clients such as Microsoft Net Meeting etc. and they seem to work fine.

The only issue with not having a Gatekeeper in the mix is that you loose some of the zone management & QoS features that can be applied through the GK.

I did notice in the 6000 MXP Datasheet that is supports Call Manager integration with a Tandberg product called ECM? I have never heard of that product nor could I find any documentation on it.

As a side note, Tandberg has a complete line of SCCP or "Skinny" compatible devices that can register to Call Manager using the SCCP protocol instead of H.323. Essentially these devices look like IP Phones.
