Hello friends,

can you please tell me what are these license about:


116341G00-1-9BEE730C - H323-SIP Interworking Gateway


116341P00-1-63797C52 - Device Provisioning


116341X10-1-A5700786 - 10 Non-traversal Calls


116341Y100-1-F7EACAC0 - 100 Traversal Calls



One friend told me that if a have a license the VCS will turn line some kind of firewall and the "Endpoint" can register to the VCS only with opening ports

on the ASA. Can you please tell me if this is true and what kind of license should i have that JabberVideo can register to the VCS.

VCS--Cisco3945--ASA5505------Internet-------Endpoint
THANKS!

116341G00-1-9BEE730C - H323-SIP Interworking Gateway


Allows interworking between H.323 and SIP calls, i.e. you might be calling an end-point using SIP, but if the called end-point only supports H.323, the VCS will convert the call from SIP to H.323 and the call will still connect.


116341P00-1-63797C52 - Device Provisioning


This is required if you want to provision devices and/or clients such as JabberVideo.


116341X10-1-A5700786 - 10 Non-traversal Calls


Non-traversal calls are "internal calls", i.e. SIP-->SIP or H.323-->H.323 calls on your internal network where the media is not routed. This licence allows 10 concurrent calls of that nature.


See https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2155852

and for an in depth explanation see

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/telepresence/infrastructure/articles/vcs_traversal_call_license_usage_kb_168.shtml .


116341Y100-1-F7EACAC0 - 100 Traversal Calls


This licence allows 100 concurrent traversal calls - see the above link for in depth explanations, however a call is known as a traversal call when interworked between h.323 and SIP, IPv4 and IPv6, firewall traversal etc.

One friend told me that if a have a license the VCS will turn line some kind of firewall and the "Endpoint" can register to the VCS only with opening ports

on the ASA. Can you please tell me if this is true

THANKS!

If the endpoints are all located behind the firewall, then you do not need to open any ports on the ASA to allow these end-points to register.

If you want to call end-points outside the firewall, then that is a different story all together.

You would normally go VCS--->FW-->VCS-E-->Internet which gives you secure firewall traversal.

what kind of license should i have that JabberVideo can register to the VCS.

You need TMS JabberVideo aka provisioning licences if you want to use enterprise JabberVideo.


So:

1) TMS server

2 ) JabberVideo (Provisioning licences) installed on TMS server

3) TMSPE (Provisioning Extension) installed on TMS server

4) Provisioning templates created from provisioning schemas and uploaded to TMS server.

5) Provisioning key on VCS (which you have).


I strongly recommend you reach out to your local Cisco rep for this.
