Introduction

This article provides information on designing, sizing and configuring a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace single-site deployment with all server components located at a single site interconnected by LAN. The configuration example is based primarily on testing performed during Cisco Unified Communications Release 7.0(1) system testing.

Design

Cisco Unified Communications SRND Based on Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.x provides system-level design and implementation of a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace (MP) system in the Cisco Unified Communications environment. For more information on system-level design and implementation of a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace (MP) system in the Cisco Unified Communications environment, see the SRND at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/srnd/7x/mtplace.html

Sizing Example for Unified MeetingPlace Solution

Bonjour Networks having a global team of employees in France, New York and Germany requires its hightly skilled and professional employees to effectively communicate with each other on a frequent basis. Since frequent communication is critical to success and to working effectively with the customers, Bonjour Networks decides to use Cisco Unified MeetingPlace which is a rich media end-to-end conferencing solution that enables employees to meet and be productive, regardless of the location of the employees.

Unified MeetingPlace Topology

During Cisco Unified Communications Release system testing, Unified MeetingPlace was installed and tested in Abilene site model. Abilene is a single-site deployment, with all server components located at a single site interconnected by LAN. In this model, Unified MP is co-located with the Unified CM and integrated via SIP.

For more information on signle-site deployment, refer to Single-Site Unified MP Deployment

Segmented Meeting Access Option is applied on Abilene site. Here a web collaboration server is placed within the demilitarized zone (DMZ) for publicly listed meetings. For more information on SMA, refer to Segmented Meeting Access Option

Since automatic failover mechanism is not available for the Unified MP Application server, two MP Application servers are deployed, one of the two servers is deployed as a secondary server operating in standby mode and providing redundancy. Similarly two Unified MP Web Collaboration servers are used to provide redundancy. For more information on redundancy considerations, refer to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/srnd/7x/mtplace.html#wp1072837

Figure 3 provides an overview of the MeetingPlace topology in Abilene site model.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace

Cisco Unified Communications Manager routes IP calls to a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace IP gateway by associating a dialed number with a route pattern that points to the appropriate gateway.

To configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager for a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace IP gateway, use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration application to add a gateway and assign it to a route pattern. If you are using SIP, you must configure a SIP trunk and assign a route pattern to it. MeetingPlace may be integrated via an H.323 gateway or a SIP trunk, or integrated with both at the same time as shown throughout this topic.

This section includes the following areas:

SIP Trunk Configuration

To access the Cisco Communications Manager Administration web pages for configuring a SIP trunk, choose Device > Trunk > Trunk Configuration from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration application.

Table 7 shows how a SIP trunk was configured for the MP AppServer in the Trunk Configuration page.
