Features and Benefits

Cisco TelePresence Commercial Express offers the following key features and benefits:

• Unified appliance for infrastructure applications: A single appliance contains all three infrastructure solutions, allowing you to deploy a single solution for meeting all your infrastructure needs in small and midsize deployments.

• Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch (Multipoint Switch): The core functions of the Multipoint Switch are preserved in Commercial Express, enabling up to 15 segments on a single call. For more information about the Multipoint Switch, refer to the data sheet at:

• Cisco TelePresence Recording Server (Recording Server): Cisco TelePresence Commercial Express retains the core functions of the Recording Server, with limitations on the number of recording, playback sessions, and hours of recording stored. Refer to the Cisco TelePresence Recording Server data sheet at for core functions.

• Cisco TelePresence Manager: Cisco TelePresence Commercial Express preserves the core features of the Cisco TelePresence Manager with limitations on the number of rooms that can be managed and the amount of data stored for reporting. More information about the Cisco TelePresence Manager is available at:

• License management: Cisco TelePresence Commercial Express uses the Cisco TelePresence Manager to enforce license limitations for capacity and features, described in Table 2. When the hardware is detected, the Multipoint Switch, Recording Server, and Cisco TelePresence Manager automatically restrict functions to those permitted under the license.
