Need to setup Cisco TelePresence for an enterprise that has multiple sites running Polycom. As a condition my Cisco TelePresence systems should be able to make video calls to and from the Polycom endpoints.
What setup do I need on the Cisco side of things?
I'm thinking VCS Starter Pack and my Cisco/Tandberg endpoints will do.
HI Kelvin. What is the customer currently using for a Gatekeeper now for the Polycom systems? If using CMA, I personally haven't tried to register to there type GK, but if deploying startpack for the customer, registering the endpoints to the VCS shouldn't be any problem. There are some caveats for Polycom systems in the X7.1 release notes, so would be best to check those out while working on your deployment. Hope this helps.
If the PolyCom devices are currently just calling each other via IP addresses, then you can register the Polycom's directly to the VCS Controller. If they are HDX systems, then you can enable SIP and then point them to the VCS with the registration.
If your going to connect to there external bridge system, you would have to find out how you need to dial them and coordinate with them on connectivity.
If its another Polycom bridge, you have may have to dial there attendant and be moved to a conference or enter the code at the bridge to be put into that conference. This of course depends on which bridge your calling (MGC or RMX). But getting to them over H323 if your system is accesible to there's shouldn't be a problem. You would just need to get the dial string from them to see how to connect.
Hi Kelvin. Shouldnt be an issue, but I say that not knowing how your environment is. C20 shouldnt have any problems connecting to Polycom MCU. Depending how Polycom is set up, dialing direct to them shouldnt be an issue if your sure no network restrictions will impede you.
Connected to the bridge and it worked. Faced little problems with presentations but realized it had to do with the polycom bridge. After a few changes in the bridge both face-to-face and presentation worked perfectly.
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...
