CUPC 8 and MPX Video Conferencing

CUCM 8.0(3)

CUPS 8.0(2)

CUPC 8.0.1


We are having trouble with video conferencing 3 people together ad-hoc in CUPC 8.  We can get 2 way video/audio with 2 people, but when conferencing in the third person, it goes to audio only.  We have an MPX ad-hoc conference bridge registered to CUCM.  The MRG/MRGL contains this conf bridge and is assigned to all phones.  I've seen multiple documents, including the CUPC 8 Datasheet, say that MPX VT2.0 is one of the requirements for Video Conferencing in CUPC 8. MPX-standard is not listed.


Video conferencing

Required for impromptu video conferencing:

• Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 5.7, 7.0, or 7.1

• Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8.0

• Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express-VT 2.0

I assume that's not accurate, based on other posts.

What are we missing here?


Re: CUPC 8 and MPX Video Conferencing

MPX and MPX VT use the same installation DVD but two installation options.

For video conferencing, you need to install MPX VT, not MPX.

Re: CUPC 8 and MPX Video Conferencing

Is that to say MP 8 would fix this issue as well (from the table above)?  Because right now we are hard-pressed to justify them upgrading from MPX to MP8 given that it does not fix the voice prompt issue I posted in another section.  We'd definitely rather upgrade to MP8 (even though it means them buying 2GB more ram for their existing server) than crossgrade to MPX-VT.


Re: CUPC 8 and MPX Video Conferencing

I would say MP7 or MP8 would be a better option if you're using CUPC 8.
