  • Page 4 Preface Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) provide the foundation for systems design based on common use cases or current engineering system priorities. They incorporate a broad set of technologies, features, and applications to address customer needs. Cisco engineers have comprehensively tested and documented each CVD in order to ensure faster, more reliable, and fully predictable deployment.
  • Page 5 CVDs related to this guide. This section is a quick reference only. For more details, see the Introduction. This Cisco validated design guide should be started after Cisco Preferred Architecture for deploying the Unified communications using cisco Midmarket Collaboration, BE6000 cisco validated design guide.

  • Page 7 Introduction Businesses around the world are struggling with escalating travel costs. Growing corporate expense accounts reflect the high price of travel, but travel also takes a toll on the health and well being of employees and their families. Often, the only way to solve a difficult problem is to fly an expert to the location to see the issue and discuss it with the people at the site.
  • Page 8 Cisco Preferred Architectures provide recommended deployment models for specific market segments based on common use cases. They incorporate a subset of products from the Cisco Collaboration portfolio that is best suited for the targeted market segment and defined use cases. These deployment models are prescriptive, out-of-the-box, and built to scale with an organization as its business needs change.This...

    Cisco video endpoints provide IP video telephony features and functions similar to IP voice telephony, enabling users to make point to point and multipoint video calls. Cisco video endpoints are classified into families based on the features they support, hardware screen size, and environment where the endpoint is deployed.
  • Page 12  Record instant CMR conferences  Cisco TelePresence Content Server is trunked to the Unified CM and a dedicated directory number is used for calls towards the TCS. Dial Plan These design uses, single-cluster, centralized call processing. The endpoints use a seven-digit phone number for dialing, which preserves the capability to receive calls from devices that only support only numeric dialing.
  • Page 13 Introduction URI configured on the TelePresence Conductor via the TMS. The CMR numbers and URIs used in the following pattern:   For scheduled CMRs, TelePresence Conductor is SIP trunked to Unified CM. In this document, whenever a user schedules a conference, a randomly generated number is assigned to the scheduled conference for the users to dial in.
  • Page 14 For customers who want to deploy only recording without the conferencing capability, please follow the procedures labelled as (recording only). For the installation of Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM), refer the “Installing the Cisco Unified CM” process in the Installation Guide for Cisco Business Edition 6000.
