Cisco Telepresence

Can a Cisco Catalyst 6506 Switch support Telepresence?

Appreciate your response

Re: Cisco Telepresence

Hello Navneet,

what do you mean by "support"? Telepresence to my knowledge is an advanced communication (video/voip) solution. The 6506 is supporting voip and video. In this sense: Yes.

Q: Will you have a "three-panel, 65-inch plasma screen system complete with a specially designed table that seats six participants" module for the 6506, i.e. an integrated Cisco TelePresence 3000?

A: Unlikely ;-)

For more details on TelePresence have a look at

Cheers, Martin

Re: Cisco Telepresence

Hi,

The Telpresence traffic will cause some large bursts of traffic. So not all 6506 modules will support these traffic.

There is a list of latest Cat6k/Cat4500 modules and switches which can support these large bursts and are recommended for Telepresence.

Thanks,

Manu

Re: Cisco Telepresence

Can you point us to the list of such modules and a cisco document supporting the "burst limitations" that you mentioned ?

Re: Cisco Telepresence

Hi Navneet,

TelePresence, makes high demands on the network for quality of service, availability, and security. Specifically, your network must exhibit the following four critical attributes from end to end: QOS, Nonstop communications,Integrated security,Operational manageability.

There is a document which explains how 6500 switches supports these requirements. It may be helpful to you......

Rate if it does,

Re: Cisco Telepresence

Hello,

I've read the document and fund that is quite marketing oriented, and this does not contain any indication of modules unable to support "telepresence".

Honestly I would be surprised if there were, because since the start the 6500 linecards were designed for linerate performance, that is some steps above "burst tolerance".

Hi All,

We are using a 3750 Switch at the users end and it is connected to a 3845 ISR at the ISP end. QoS is enabled at 3750.

Re: Cisco Telepresence

I repeat myself, no matter the application, and no matter if QoS is configured or not, your 3750 switch will work fine.

QoS on LAN environments in essentially unnecessary, as you can add links as you want.

The only place where you need to configure QoS properly is on the WAN, where congestion occurs.
