Well that depends on what endpoints you are using.
If you are running all C-series/EX units on software TC5 or above and /or CTS units then CTMS is the cheapest. If you are running other, non-TIP capable endpoints then I don't know, maybe Telepresence server.
I want to link 5 standard definition Telepresnce sites. Each endpoint should be able to call the other. Main office should be able to initiate multisite meetings, they are the only ones who need the multisite feature.
I am registering my 5 endpoints to CUCM (is CUCM registration necessary?). From what you have given me above I can deploy a C40 endpoint at the main office and 4 C20 endpoints at the branch offices.
(1). In the C40 datasheet they say
● 4-way SIP/H.323 MultiSite. Resolution up to w576p30
Does this mean all the 4 C20 endpoints can be in the same meeting with the main office by using this functionality in the C40?
(2). Can I use EX 90 at the main office since it also has the multisite feature?
(3). Does the C40 endpoint come with the PresicionHD camera or its purchased separately? I configured the endpoint and it passed DCT verification but I did not see the camera listed as I would if I had configured a C20 endpoint.
0) if you have an internal network with transparent ip connectivity you can run the systems just on h323 and direct ip connectivity. This should also work with multisite, but I have not tested that, so maybe you should check on that.
0b) the codian MCUs have small gatekeeper which can handle the h323 calls
0c) CUCM is not necessary, not sure if the MCU would be supported, the endpoint support is getting better
and better for each version.
0c2) often you might end up in a stable CUCM for telephony which might run an older version, but you know
everything works for you and an addtional one to handle video which is the most up to date one, ...
At least CUCM will become more and more important, though a VCS also would work fine for you here.
1) The C Series has 3+1=4, means 3 external + the system itself, so it would not match your requirement
regarding 5 systems in a call, it can only handle 4 including itself = 3 external.
1b) this is why I suggested a small MCU, then you can have up to 6 participants
2) Yes, the EX90 with the multisite (has to be purchased in addition) option would even to 720p.
If you think of multisite, always think of that if you only have one system this ALWAYS have to
host this meeting, thats not always doable / suitable. Also the additional calls have to be added
manually as auto answer only connects the first call. An other clear advantage for the MCU.
3) yes and no, you will get it alone and as an integrator packages, just did not have the price list in
Say we have 3 sites - A, B & C. Site A is the main site and is using a Codec C40 system with the multisite option, sites B and C are the branch offices using C20 endpoints each. Site A initites a multisite video call with all the 3 sites included.
Will each one of the sites be able to see every other OR A is the only site that can see both the other 2 participants since its the only one with a system that supports multipoint conferencing?
Also highlight what would happen if site A were using the following systems with multisite functionality: EX-90, Edge 95 MXP e.t.c. while sites B & C and were using the same C20 endpoints.
