we have four sites, using MPLS network. We use CM 6.1. The network is look like!

site-A--- |----------Site-C

| |

|---------| MPLS Network|-----------|

| |----------Site-D



At present we have voice-gateway configured between Site-A & Site-B and CM 6.1 is on Site-A. we configured cisco and polycom IP video phones all working fine. Now we want to Site-C & Site-D to join us and all 4 sites can see each other, but we don't have voice-gateways configured on Site-C and Site-D and we do have some polycom IP video phones available. Can we have a video conference with Site-C & Site-D without a voice-gateway ?

Any help will be appreciated.

Point to point video telephony should work fine as long as you have IP connectivity between the sites which from your explanation seems to be the case.

If your question is can you have all four sites in one conference at the same time you will need a video capable MCU to host the conference. The Cisco 3515 would be suitable for this task.
