Can anyone share some information on how you do cme to cme meet-me conferening?
Here is a scneario with two CME's separated by a T1. CME1 conference has 30 participants using pure G.711 codec and CME2 conference has 31 participants usign pure G.711 codec.
- Why not just have one meet me conference and use g.729 codec? If you use G.729 codec your max conference participant will decrease from 32 (actually the max could be 64) to 8.
- Why not just have one meet me conference and use g.711 codec? g.711 uses 64kbps (payload only add another 16kbps) multiply that by 30 participants and you get a T1 bottleneck.
I am thinking that you can just bridge those two conference by forwarding CME1 conference to CME2 conference and the router would just see it as 1 G.711 rtp session, therefore conserving bandwidth. Is it that easy? has someone done this before? The thought just cross my mind by reading throught my ONT book and CCNP mentor video's.
