Third Party Software to be used as an Endpoint

Hello everyone, Any one can recommend a software (free software is recommended) it can be used to register with VCS and VCS express. I need this software for testing purposes. I prefer also if I can use this software as a standalone endpoint (without registration) to simulate incoming calls from internet. Thanks.

Cisco Jabber Video is the

Cisco Jabber Video is the free, internet based version that does not require TMS - just an internet connection.  You are thinking of "Cisco Jabber For Telepresence" which is basically the "corporate" version of the same software.

 

Jabber Video won't register with VCS but it will simulate your internet based calls, although your test environment will need a connection to the public internet to make it work.

Polycom PVX was great for

Polycom PVX was great for this, and although you can still download it, it has been discontinued.. It is only SD, but you can register using SIP and H.323 and had a 5 minute time limit on a call in its trial state. The later version of the software (Real Presence Desktop) is a 30 day trial (if I rememberer correctly)

On the Open source front, you could also try Linphone (SIP) and Ekiga (SIP and H.323). These can be a bit hit and miss though.

 

Cheers

Thank you all for your reply

Thank you all for your reply and +5 for all,

I tried to mark all of your replies as correct answer but I could not.

 

When I tried to use x-lite with VCS it will be unregistered after 5 or 10 minutes, anyone knows why?

I've had some luck using X

I've had some luck using X-Lite in the past registered to the VCS for some quick testing.

For the external, I use a JabberVideo client connected to www.CiscoJabberVideo.com.
