Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 6.x > Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server > Planning the installation > Database Planning Worksheets

The Ports parameters define the access type to assign to each port that connects the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system to the phone network.

Use this worksheet to plan the ports parameters.

For Options and Field Size values, in most cases the numeric and alphanumeric ranges given are the number of acceptable digits or characters for the field. (For example, Numeric-0 to 9 means that the field accepts any number between 0 (or nil) and 999999999.) Ranges with an asterisk (*) mean that the field accepts an actual number that falls within that range. (For example, Numeric-1 to 32767* means that the field accepts the value 3102 but not 32769.)

Field Description Default Options and Field Size Value
Port Information

Server number

Identifies the server. As a standalone system, the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106 or 8112 server is always defined as server number 0 .


Numeric-0 to 8

Number that identifies the port.


Numeric- 0 to 1151*


Span ID (digital trunks only)

Card ID

Identifies which card slot controls this port.
