Subscription Bridge vs. Value Added Service Bridge

Unanswered Question

Hi,


What is the difference between the nine (9) and six (6) participant bridge included in the Premium and Jabber Video subscriptions (respectively) and the Value Added Service six (6) and twelve (12) port bridge? 


Is the bridge included with Subscription effectively a MultiWay-style escalation initiated from the subscribed endpoint, whereas the Value Added Service bridge is more of a Rendezvous/MeetMe style bridge with a dedicated URI/Bridge ID and assumably a PSTN access number?


Many thanks,


Aaron

  • Cisco Employee,

Both bridge types provide the same high quality multi-participant features with continuous presence, active speaker, data share plus much more.  Besides the total number of allowed participants (ports) the following outlines the main differences.


Subscription Bridge, what is referred to as Webex Telepresence Group Calling limits participants to @webex.com or @jabber.com video participants.


The Value Added Service Bridge, what is referred to as  Webex Telepresence Multipoint Bridge is a full interop bridge that allows any routable video endpoint from other domains to join as well as PSTN voice endpoints to join.
