MPE 5.4 installation

Is there any body worked with meeting place 5.4.

i need to know the basic requirements, i have got a single MCS 7835, but now i have come to know that i need a seperate Audio Server for it as well,is it possible to install MPE 5.4 when i have a single MCS 7835, and one more thing i am currently using Call Manager 4.1, is it ok or i have to upgrade the CCM as well.

your coordination in this regard will be highly appreciated.

MeetingPlace 5.4 is for the enterprise customer that has an 81xx voice chassis. MPE (MeetingPlace Express) is a different product. Which is currently running the 2.x version.

Re: MPE 5.4 installation

Deploying MeetinPlace takes significant planning and it's not just a ad-hoc installation as you seem to be doing. Hence the requirement for ATP parnership for this product.

You need to install the Audio Server first, followed by the MCS server if you need IP connection to MP, and/or web conferencing. depending on the size and topology of your deployment you may need multiple MCS servers. For the IP GW configuration you need to determine if you want to use H323 or SIP. Do you plan on implementing web/video/directory integration?

I'd recommand going through the following compatibility matrix first:

then SRND section for MP:

then MP installation docs, corresponding to your requirements:

There is a lot, but it's well docuemnted, I did my first implementation without previous training similary to you, it was bit overwhelming seeing all the components, but after reading the above it all made sense and the implementation was seemless.

Re: MPE 5.4 installation

Thankyou very much for this great feedback

right now i have hanged 8106 and connected my laptop with it and assigned the necessary ip's, but i dont know whether i have to install the software of audio server on it,

if it is so then what is the command of doing it.

one more thing i need know that what else can i do afterwards because i have a huge bundly of cds with this meeting place and i am simply stuck.

so how many more boxes do i require.
