  1. Click MCU on the sidebar.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click Basics.
  4. Select a language in the User interface language field.
  5. Click Upload.


Configuring and Viewing Quality of Service (QoS)

You can assign a Quality of Service (QoS) priority level to voice and video calls using either pre-configured system settings or by creating your own settings.

QoS settings involve configuring the Audio Blade to add a QoS DiffServ Code Point value in the IP header of outbound packets. Routers on the network that support QoS can give preferential treatment for bandwidth, latency, and jitter to such coded packets and facilitate the efficient transmission of packets. You can set QoS parameters on the Audio Blade for voice calls, video calls, or both.


Procedure
  1. Click MCU on the sidebar.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click Quality of Service.
  4. Set the required DiffServ Code Point value for each media type by clicking one of the following radio buttons in the Quality of service support field:
    • None-QoS support is disabled.
    • Default-The system assigns the default DiffServ Code Point value for each media type. The default settings represent Cisco recommendations.
    • Custom-The system assigns your own DiffServ Code Point value for each media type.
  5. (Optional, if you selected Custom) Do the following:
    • Enter a whole number from 0 to 63 in the Voice Priority field of the Video Calls section to set the DiffServ Code Point value of voice packets that the Audio Blade sends out. The default value is 34.
    • Enter a whole number from 0 to 63 in the Video Priority field of the Video Calls section to set the DiffServ Code Point value of video packets that the Audio Blade sends out. The default value is 34.
    • Enter a whole number from 0 to 63 in the Voice Priority field of the Voice Calls section to set the DiffServ Code Point value of voice packets that the Audio Blade sends out. The default value is 46.



Configuring Dynamic Layouts

You can define the video layouts for video callers from the Dynamic Layouts section of the Settings tab. When selected, the meeting layout changes automatically as participants join or leave meetings.


Procedure
  1. Click MCU on the sidebar.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click Dynamic Layouts.
  4. Click a layout image to select or deselect that specific layout.



How to Configure Media Server Alert Indications

You can select which events trigger Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) traps from the Alert Indications section of the Settings tab. You can also define multiple SNMP servers to which the Media Server sends the SNMP traps and configure which events to display in the Event Log tab.


Enabling Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3500 Series Media Server Alert Indications and Setting Security Levels

You can configure which alerts will be enabled and set a severity level for each one from the Alert Indications section of the Settings tab.


Table: Media Server Alert Indications lists alert indications as well as the SNMP trap associated with them.


Table: Standard SNMP Trap Event Types lists the structure of the standard coldStart and warmStart traps (as defined in RFC 1907) and the standard linkDown and linkUp traps (as defined in RFC 1573).


Table: Media Server Alert Indications
Event Type Trap is sent when...

Procedure
  1. Click MCU on the sidebar.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click Alert Indications.
  4. Check Enabled for the events that you want to display in the event log.

    • Information (1)-Notification of a non-erroneous event.
    • Critical (2)-A service-affecting event has occurred and requires immediate corrective action.
    • Major (3)-A service-affecting event has occurred and requires corrective action to prevent the condition becoming more serious.
    • Minor (4)-A non-service-affecting event has occurred and requires corrective action to prevent the condition becoming more serious.
    • Warning (5)-A potential or impending service-affecting event has been detected, but no significant events have occurred yet. Action should be taken to further diagnose and correct the problems to prevent the condition becoming more serious.
    Tip: You can click Select All to select all events or Clear All to clear all events.
