Can the Sx20 connect to Webex Connect ??

I think there is some confusion here on what he is asking the answers given.

There is a difference between WebEx Telepresence and WebEx Connect. He is asking for connectivity to WebEx Connect and the ansswers are pointing to WebEx TelePresence (formally called CallWay). The two services are not interoperable without some type of gateway.

So to answer your questions

Can SX20 connect to WebEx Connect session - Short answer is no. but if you have PSTN access through a gateway you can connect audio only. 

1) Is it possbile to let someone join the conference using WebEx? Yes as long as they are using WebEx Connect or connect audio

2) Do i have to purchase  any other device to connect to WebEx? Yes you can configure a PC/Laptop to act as a gateway for your SX20 or see if your WebEx account can have WebEx Enabled TelePresence provisioned on the account.(you would need CUCM(o), MCU(o), VCS Expressway and TMS)

3) Is it possible to do the conference between other video conferencing device like polycom? If you connect the PC/Laptop to the SX20 and that codec "joins" the session you can have the SX20 dial out to other VTC Codecs or to an MCU.

Teh PC/Laptop must have athe ability to take in the audio and video from the camera and microphone then pass that to the WebEx session then have the program audio and video from WebEx sent back to the CODEC.

See a product from Vaddio called the Vaddio Easy USB AV Bridge I have never used this product as i have always used seperate A/V devices to accomplish the same thing, but I think if I have to do it again I would explore this option.

please refer to

https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-16178

the guide has all the information.

you would have to get bridge subscription

Cisco WebEx Telepresence bridge/personal bridge

i am not very sure on the interop calls between other devices

Hi Lawrence,

thank you for correcting me if the customer is asking the same webex connect.

then yes he cannot connect direclty an SX20 ,

he can be on a call with one user on webex connect and another on sx20 by using cisco meeting place bridge.

Yes, you can connect to all standard based videoconferencing systems such as Polycom, LifeSize etc.

Dialling method depends on how these systems have been configured and deployed.
