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



Contents

Release 8.0 Using an Express Media Server

Configuration Details

This configuration assumes the following:

  • One Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server using a minimum MCS-7845-I3-RC2 or equivalent.
  • Two Web servers
  • Three Cisco WebEx Node for MCS
  • Single node configuration using the Express Media Server and Cisco WebEx Node for MCS 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

300

Audio ports using G.729 or G.722

750

Combined audio/video ports using G.711 and 384Kpbs

125

Combined audio/video ports using G.722 and 2Mbps

1000

Web sessions per Application Server

500

Maximum number of concurrent audio and web meetings per Application Server

50

Simultaneous meetings that can be recorded

1000

Largest possible audio meeting (or 999 when recorded)1

500

Largest possible web meeting using Meeting Center meetings1

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

Sizes

250,000

Call Rate

Maximum Details

180 seconds

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

20 seconds

Time to get the meetings started

15 CPS

Maximum call rate for inbound calls


Redundancy

Warm Standby Application Server is supported. This requires duplicate MCS hardware for the Application Server. Cisco Webex Node redundancy is supported with the 3 MCS server configuration. No redundant Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web servers are supported with the Cisco Webex integration.


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.



Release 8.0 Using a Hardware Media Server

Configuration Details

This configuration assumes the following:

  • One Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server using a minimum MCS-7845-I3-RC2 or equivalent.
  • Two Web servers
  • Eight Audio blades
  • Eight Video blades
  • Three Cisco WebEx Node for MCS
  • Single node configuration using the Hardware Media Server and Cisco WebEx Node for MCS web conferencing
  • Supports both Cisco Unified MeetingPlace-scheduled meetings and reservationless meetings
  • Does not support Cisco WebEx-scheduled meetings


Capacity

Maximum Number Details

2000

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

1328

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

300

Video ports using standard rate video

1000

Web sessions per Application Server

500

Number of concurrent audio and web meetings per Application Server

50

Simultaneous meetings that can be recorded

1000

20 CPS

Maximum call rate for inbound calls


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 Webex Node redundancy is supported with the 3 MCS server configuration. No redundant Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web servers are supported with the Cisco Webex integration.


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.

Configuration Details

This configuration assumes the following:

  • One Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server using a minimum MCS-7845-I3-RC2 or equivalent.
  • Three Cisco WebEx Node for MCS
  • Single node configuration using the Express Media Server and Cisco WebEx web conferencing
  • Uses Cisco WebEx front-end interfaces for web conferencing and Cisco WebEx productivity tools

3500

Largest possible meeting using Event Center as follows:

  • Up to 500 users with speaking privileges on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace audio bridge
  • Up to 3000 users with listening-only privileges on the audio broadcast

Footnote 1: For larger meetings, we recommend that you use Event Center.
