One level up: Documentation for Administrators




This section provides compatibility information between Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1 and various video terminals when using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(2) or higher.

All testing for Release 7.1 was performed with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace connected to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.5.1.10000-23 via SIP trunk. For H.323 testing, the terminal was registered to a H.323 Gatekeeper, which was connected to Cisco Unified Communications Manager through an H.225 trunk. For SIP and SCCP, the terminal was registered directly to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Notes:

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(2) or higher is required for all video installations except where only Cisco Unified Video Advantage is used, in which case Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.0(3) is adequate.
  • Endpoints with the following test results are likely to drop calls when transferring to a breakout session, initiating a #31 dial-out call, or exiting the meeting with #9:
    • Dial in-fail
    • Dial out-fail
    • Direct to meeting-OK or "-"
These video endpoints typically do not correctly support the required media transfer mechanism.
  • Transferring a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace call from a Cisco-brand phone to a third-party SIP video terminal is likely to result in an audio-only connection. This is due to differences in the way Cisco and third-party terminals negotiate transport of telephony events. The differences cause Cisco Unified Communications Manager to insert a media termination point (MTP) in the call. Unless a hardware MTP resource is available, this insertion will block the video stream.
  • ISDN Video (H.320) Gateways and ISDN Video terminals are not supported.

Video Endpoint Compatibility Test Results for Release 7.0

The following table displays results for video endpoints that were tested against Release 7.0.2 (MR1) and 7.0.3 (MR2). Test results also apply to Release 7.1.

All testing for Release 7.0 was performed with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace connected to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1 or Release 7.0 via SIP trunk. For H.323 testing, the terminal was registered to a H.323 Gatekeeper, which was connected to Cisco Unified Communications Manager through an H.323 trunk. For SIP and SCCP, the terminal was registered directly to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

Terminology Used in Video Endpoint Compatibility Test Results

The following table describes the terminology used in Table: Video Endpoints Compatible with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1.


Terminology Description
Test

Dial In

Tested dialing in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.

Dial Out

Tested dialing out from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace by using a web browser command or by using the TUI command #31.

Direct to Meeting

Tested dialing out from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace using the scheduled "direct to meeting" mode. The process was to configure a video terminal profile for outdial to terminal, tell the video terminal to skip the meeting entry prompts on outdial, and then invite the terminal to the meeting.

4CIF

Tested whether the terminal worked when tested with 4CIF using H.263.

Result

OK

The terminal was able to enter a meeting using video.

Fail

The terminal was not able to enter a meeting. The failure may have been at initial connection or at meeting entry.

"-"

The terminal was not tested in this mode.



Video Format Support

Table: Supported Video Formats lists the supported video formats for various combinations of the global video mode and the codec used by the video terminal.


Notes:

  • If Cisco Unified Communications Manager causes the connection rate to be lower than the maximum for your global video mode setting (384 kbps for standard rate, 2 Mbps for high rate), then the resolution or frames per second sent by Cisco Unified MeetingPlace may be reduced.
  • H.263 and H.261 are offered only by defining a video terminal profile. Otherwise, only H.264 will be offered.
