Component Compatibility

Note: For compatibility information for other Cisco Unified MeetingPlace releases, go to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/ps5664/ps5669/products_device_support_tables_list.html.


The following table lists the components (and their release numbers) that are compatible with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server Release 8.5.


Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 is not backwards compatible. All major components, such as the Application Server/Express Media Server, Hardware Media Server, Web Server, and Cisco WebEx Node for MCS, must be at Release 8.5.

Audio Endpoint Compatibility

The following Cisco Unified IP Phones are supported in Release 8.5:

  • 7940 G and G-GE series (SCCP only)
    • Minimum firmware version 6.0(4.3), also called App Load ID P00306000403
  • 7941, 7942, and 7945
  • 7960 G and G-GE series (SCCP only)
    • Minimum firmware version 6.0(4.3), also called App Load ID P00306000403
  • 7961, 7962 and 7965
  • 7970 G series
  • 7971, 7975
  • 8961
  • 9951 and 9971
  • Cisco IP Communicator Release 1.1(5) or later


Note: For information about upgrading the firmware, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager documentation.

Video Endpoint Compatibility

This section provides compatibility information between Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 and various video terminals when using Cisco Unified Communications Manager. All testing 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.323 trunk. For SIP and SCCP, the terminal was registered directly to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Notes:

  • WebEx-scheduling deployments do not support Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(5) and 8.0(2).
  • 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.


Compatibility Test Results with the Hardware Media Server

Following are the test results for video endpoint compatibility when using Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 with a Hardware Media Server (HMS).


Notes:

  • The Hardware Media Server supplies Standard Definition video. High Definition video is not supported.
  • H.323 endpoints must be configured as video terminals in order to have video.

Compatibility Test Results with the Express Media Server

Following are the test results for video endpoint compatibility when using Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 with an Express Media Server (EMS).


For Cisco applications, the availability of High Definition (HD) video depends on the version of your Cisco application and video camera. For example:

  • Cisco Unified Personal Communicator Release 7.0 does not support HD video.
  • Cisco Unified Personal Communicator Release 8.0 supports HD video if you are using an HD video camera and a quad-core PC.
  • Cisco UC Integration for Microsoft Office Communicator Release 7.0 does not support video.
  • Cisco UC Integration for Microsoft Office Communicator Release 8.0 supports HD video if you are using an HD video camera and a quad-core PC.

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 8.5 and HMS and Table: Video Endpoints Compatible with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 and EMS.


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.

No video

The terminal was able to enter a meeting, but without video or with one-way 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.


Note: 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.
