Up one level: Planning Your Deployment


This section provides a series of quick reference tables that describe the different capacity limits for several key configurations of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 and 8.0.

For more detailed information, see the following:


Contents

Release 7.0.3 (MR2) with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing

Configuration Details

This configuration assumes the following:

  • One Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server using a minimum MCS-7845-I3-RC1 or equivalent.
  • Two Windows servers (the system supports a minimum of 2 servers but scales to 6 servers depending on your configuration and features)
  • Six Audio blades
  • Six Video blades
  • Single node configuration using the Hardware Media Server and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web conferencing
  • Supports both Cisco Unified MeetingPlace-scheduled meetings and reservationless meetings
  • Does not support Cisco WebEx-scheduled meetings


Capacity

Maximum Number Details

1500

Audio ports using G.711 or G.729 (without LEC)1

996

Audio ports using G.729 (with LEC), G.722, or iLBC1

240

Video ports using standard rate video

1000

500

Number of concurrent audio and web meetings per Application Server

3000

Total meetings per day

1000

Continuous meetings

50

Simultaneous meetings that can be recorded

300

Largest possible audio meeting (or 299 when recorded)2

300

Largest possible web meeting when not using SSL or recording3

300

Largest possible web meeting when using SSL or recording3

20

Simultaneous Conference Manager sessions

1

Database replication connection per Windows cluster (internal and external).

Customers desiring redundancy for the SQL database must set up a database cluster sharing that one replication connection.

Footnote 1: When using a 7835 (I2 or H2) server, the maximum audio ports supports is 500, independent of audio mode.

Footnote 2: We recommend that you schedule large meetings in order to obtain the maximum supported capacity.

Footnote 3: The Cisco MCS 7845-I3 Web Server supports a maximum of 600 web ports per server. However, the largest supported web meeting per server is subject to the size of the largest supported audio meeting per server. Audio meetings are restricted to 300 ports due to the rate at which a single Audio blade can accept traffic.

Call Rate

Maximum Details

180 seconds

Time to get all ports into meetings (includes the time to disconnect from previous meetings)

20 seconds

Redundancy

Warm Standby Application Server is supported. This requires duplicate MCS hardware for the Application Server and would also require duplicate media hardware if the components are deployed in separate data centers. Single data center supports single shared Media Server. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web servers can be clustered for 3 internal and/or 3 external web meetings.


Recommended Practices

  • Scheduling and rescheduling of recurring meetings with more than 10 instances should be performed during off-peak times to minimize delays perceived by users joining meetings.
  • Administrative reports should be run during off-peak times to minimize delays perceived by users joining meetings.

However, the largest supported web meeting per server is subject to the size of the largest supported audio meeting per server. Audio meetings are restricted to 300 ports due to the rate at which a single Audio blade can accept traffic.
