The audio-only deployment supports a maximum of two nodes in an active/standby configuration.


Contents

Hardware and Software Requirements

Audio-only deployments require the following components:


Component Requirement

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server

Hardware

See the Application Server Requirements.


Software

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server Release 8.5/Express Media Server (EMS)
  • Cisco Security Agent Release 6.0.1.112


Notes:

  • The Express Media Server is a set of software modules that reside on the Application Server. During installation, you will have the option to choose either the Hardware Media Server or the Express Media Server. For details about the EMS, see the Express Media Server Requirements.
  • The Cisco Security Agent software is packaged and installed during the Application Server installation. For details, see the "Using Cisco Security Agent (CSA) on the Application Server" in the Configuration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/ps5664/ps5669/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html.
  • The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace integration for Microsoft Outlook scheduling is included on the Application Server.


Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server

Note: This is an optional component based on your deployment requirements.

An internally deployed Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server can be used for the following:

  • Audio or audio/video recordings with optional customer-provided SAN/NAS storage option
  • Installation of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace integration for IBM Lotus Notes

Note: If you plan to use the MeetingPlace web scheduling interface, see the System Requirements for MeetingPlace-Scheduling Deployments instead.


Hardware

See the Web Server Requirements.


Software

  • (Optional) Cisco Security Agent Release 6.0.1.117 for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace
  • (Optional) Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server Release 8.5


Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Hardware

Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS)

For information about physically installing the Cisco MCS, see the documentation at this location: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/voiceapp/ps378/prod_installation_guides_list.html


Note: Make sure that the specific Cisco MCS model supports the number of SIP sessions that are required by your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.


Software

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 supports the following versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM):

  • CUCM 6.1(5), 7.0(2), 7.1(5), 8.0(1), 8.0(2), 8.0(3), 8.5(1), 8.6(1), 9.0(1),
  • CUCM-SME 7.1(3), 8.0, 8.5

Notes:

  • CUCM 8.6 is supported in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5.2 and later.
  • Ad-hoc (SCCP) meetings are supported in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5.2 and later. Ad-hoc meetings are not supported with CUCM 8.5.
  • CUCM 8.0(3) is the only release that supports SIP Refers for multinode Cisco Unified MeetingPlace systems (WebEx-scheduling deployments). If you require this support, open a case with Cisco TAC against the Cisco Unified Communications Manager to obtain the latest Engineering Special (ES) or Service Update (SU) version of CUCM 8.0(3).


Hardware Media Server (HMS)

If your deployment requires a HMS, see the Hardware Media Server Requirements.

Notes:

  • During installation, you will have the option to choose either the Hardware Media Server or the Express Media Server. You do not require both.
  • The Hardware Media Server should be on the same local network segment as the Application Server. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace does not support Hardware Media Server blades that are remotely located.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView is available only to Cisco Unified IP Phones that are registered to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView is not supported with the following:

  • Cisco Unified CallManager Express
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Servers with SSL enabled
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Servers with SSL enabled


Hardware

For a list of supported Cisco Unified IP Phones, see Audio Endpoint Compatibility.


Video option

See the Video Requirements.


License Requirements

This release of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace uses host-based licensing. The system uses an audit mechanism to track the number of users who have created meetings and compare that to the number of licenses that are installed. An alarm is raised when the number of users who create meetings exceeds the number of licenses installed.

If you have no licenses installed the system will allow only a single meeting at a time.


Note: If you are completing a Cisco UCS installation under VMware, note that the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system produces a randomly generated 12-digit "MAC address" that you will require for licensing. To obtain the MAC address, make sure that you install the Meeting Directors first. You can then obtain the randomly generated MAC address and register your license key.

Failover Requirements

To configure failover, you need two Application Servers with a high-speed network connection of 100Mpbs or better between them. Failover configuration requires the following:

  • When you configure the Application Server for the Express Media Server, both the primary and secondary failover Express Media Servers must have the same licenses and port distribution.
  • The active and standby Application Servers can be on different timezones, but the time must be synchronized between them. This is required to resolve conflicts when the same piece of data is modified simultaneously in both Application Servers.
  • To ensure that times are synchronized, we recommend that both Application Servers are synchronized to the same NTP server. If different NTP servers are used, make sure that these NTP servers are high-Stratum servers, that is, stratum-1 or stratum-2, to minimize the chance of an Application Server synchronizing to an inaccurate clock.


Note: Directory Service between two Application Servers is not supported in a failover deployment.

Network Requirements

This section lists the incoming and outgoing ports that are used by the various components of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.5 system. The information refers to Audio-only deployments.

Use these tables to make sure that your firewalls do not block access to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace from users or integrated systems, and to make sure that you do not block communication among the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace components and servers.


The ports that you do not need to expose to system administrators or end users are used for local communication between the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace elements or between Cisco Unified MeetingPlace and local services such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Such ports should be blocked in the DMZ or external firewall, but should not be blocked between internal components of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace solution.


Note: Signaling between Cisco Unified MeetingPlace and Cisco Unified Communications Manager must be TCP.


DNS Recommendations

  • All FQDNs of meeting director nodes (if applicable), conferencing nodes, and Cisco WebEx nodes are required for DNS resolution between all servers.
  • No multiple names to IP addresses.
  • Reverse IP lookup is required.
  • Classless DNS is not supported.
  • CUCM must have DNS enabled to resolve the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace hostnames for the SIP refer commands to be successful.
