This section provides a series of quick reference tables that describe the different capacity limits for several key configurations of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1.

Release 7.1 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-RC2 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 in the higher capacity audio mode

996

Audio ports using G.711, G.729 (with LEC), G.722, or iLBC1 in the lower capacity mode

250

Ports per MCU, in the higher capacity mode

240

Video ports using standard rate video

120

Maximum video connections in a single meeting using standard rate video

50

Maximum video connections in a single meeting using high rate video

1000

Web sessions per Application Server when not using SSL or recording

1000

Web sessions per Application Server when using SSL or recording

500

Number of concurrent audio and web meetings per Application Server

4500

A minor alarm is generated if more than 4500 meetings, scheduled for any 24 hour period, is exceeded.

3000

Total meetings per day

1000

Continuous meetings

50

Simultaneous meetings that can be recorded

500

Largest possible audio meeting 2

600

Largest possible web meeting when not using SSL or recording3

600

Largest possible web meeting when using SSL or recording3

20

Simultaneous Conference Manager sessions

200

Maximum number of occurrences when users schedule a recurring meeting from Conference Manager

500

Maximum number of participants when users schedule a recurring meeting from Conference Manager

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 500 ports due to the rate at which a single Audio blade can accept traffic.


Sizes

Maximum Size Component

250,000

An alarm is generated if the number of user profiles exceeds this number.

400,000

A minor alarm is generated if the number of meetings exceeds 80 percent of 400,000.

A major alarm is generated if the number of meetings exceeds 90 percent of 400,000.

Call Rate

Maximum Details

15 CPS

Maximum call rate for both inbound and outbound calls, averaged over a 5 second period, for a system with 6 audio blades.

3 CPS

On systems with less than 6 audio blades, the maximum call rate for both inbound and outbound calls, averaged over a 5 second period, for each audio blade. (For example, a system with 3 audio blades has a 9 CPS maximum call rate.)

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.
