Audio&video conference network deployment

HI guys. I am new in conferencing so apologies if u guys think  my question is stupid . There is voice and data network and we need to install Biamp conference system which need connection to voice net for voice traffic and to data network for video traffic  . What is the good practice :

a) to create separate vlan for conference on the core switch which will do routing for both data and voice traffic? 


b) use separate physical connections to voice vlan and data vlan (that mean need ip from data and ip from voice to be configured on conference system) ?

thank you .

Audio&video conference network deployment

Hi Bekzod,

Since the same node is processing both audio and data portion of the conference, you will have only one IP for the server. Hence, what we've seen is all the conferencing is kept on the same VLAN. You can later on regulate the priority of packets on the network with QoS.

I hope this helps.
