Physical Description

Each Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server unit contains two internal cards:

  • Signaling and audio card (Audio Blade-the upper card)
  • Video processing card (Video Blade-the lower card)

The two cards work together to perform audio and video conferencing, but each card requires a unique IP address. The cards communicate with each other via IP.


Note: For correct operation, the Video Blade card must register with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server.


The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server has a 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet port on the front panel that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to the network. There is an asynchronous, 9-pin serial-port with a Hyper Terminal program to configure and monitor the module.


Figure: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server Front Panel shows the front panel of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server. Table: Front Panel Components describes the components of the front panel.
