Not so sure about the licensing for Muzak, but a caution for doing MoH over the WAN. The g.729 codec (if that is what you are using for calls that cross the WAN) is optimized for voice and really does a poor job with music. In the one place where we tried it, the quality of the sound was very poor.
"I don't see why this would be a problem since we already have Muzak sources at the branches that will continue to be used for overhead music. We just won't use those sources for MoH any longer."
is probably the key to the licensing aspect of this thread. The artist or copywrite royalties are paid out based on a "Total peformances" agreement which equals the number of times a sound recording was performed by the licensee (Muzak) multiplied by the number of recipients (think Branch licenses). Because you are keeping the Muzak source for overhead music, I don't see how there would be any lost royalties for the artist or copywrite holder.
Rob, I think you're right. That's kind of what I was thinking. We're already paying Muzak and subscribing to the service. We just won't be using the branch source for MoH any longer.
Regarding multicast, that's not really an option. We use an MPLS-based VPN network that does not support multicast. This is going to have to be unicast. Using g711 will dramatically drive up our bandwidth usage. I'll have to keep a close eye on that if we have to go that route.
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
