Looking to buy a couple 9971 phones with the video camera and I have a couple questions regarding intergration with other video codecs.
First question, is there a particular verison of call manager that we need to be at to run this type of phone / video? We are currently running 6.1.2 and will upgrade to 8 next year.
Second question, we have several other h323 endpoints of all different brands to include Aethra Silver, Gold, AVC 8500, Polycom View Station, PVX and Life Size Express and we do not have an h323 gateway. I would like to be able to video conference 9971 phones with other video endpoints like the brands we have without having to purchase an h323 gateway. Is there a video codec brand that would support both h323 & SCCP or is there SCCP software that can be applied to the brands I currently have?
Has anyone tried to integrate these new phones with other brand video endpoints?
