    . Specify IP Addresses to be Checked with IP Keepalive Configure the IP Keepalive feature of the PJP-MC24 as necessary. The PJP-MC24 will search for network errors by sending an ICMP Echo request at a specified time interval to the IP addresses you select here. When the PJP-MC24 detects a network error, its front panel STATUS LED will light.
  • Page 30 On the IP Settings page, click Add under IP Keepalive The IP Keepalive Settings window opens. Enter the ICMP Echo request target IP address in the Target IP Address box. Enter the IP address of a device whose connection you want to check (for example, the default gateway IP address). Specify the transmit interval and count in the Transmit Interval and Transmit Count boxes as necessary. Transmit Interval You can specify the interval between ICMP Echo transmissions in seconds. If the PJP- MC24 receives an ICMP Echo Reply before the next Echo request transmission, the address passes. If no reply is received, the address fails. Transmit Count Sets the number of ICMP Echo request transmissions that will be sent. If the PJP- MC24 does not receive an ICMP Echo reply for the number of transmissions set under Transmit Count, the IP address is considered invalid.

  • Page 49: Overview Of Conference Using The Pjp-Mc24

    Local Conference The mixing functions of the participant's terminals (ProjectPhones) can be used to hold up to 30 conferences in addition to mixer conferences. Local conferences are classified into the mesh connection type and the cascade connection type. • The PJP-MC24 schedules conferences, manages participants and conference resources, and constructs the conference network. • Once connection has been established between the participants, they transfer audio data directly with each other without going through the PJP-MC24.
  • Page 50 Mesh Connection In a mesh network, a communication path is established between each participant. The PJP-MC24 can connect up to four participants on this type of network.

  • Page 57: Starting A Conference

    You can start a reserved conference at the scheduled time without operating the PJP- MC24. The following explains the connection process for participants. Prepare the ProjectPhone for the Conference. • Turn on the ProjectPhone and connect its LAN cable, so that it will be able to connect to the PJP-MC24. • Disconnect the ProjectPhone from all other terminals.You can check the ProjectPhone display to see whether or not the ProjectPhone is connected to other terminals and whether or not it will be able to connect to the PJP-MC24.
  • Page 58 Wait for the PJP-MC to Establish a Connection When the schedule time arrives, the PJP-MC24 automatically calls the terminals of the participants. The PJP-MC24 will automatically establish a connection, so there is no need to operate the ProjectPhone or to try to call the product. When the PJP-MC24 calls a terminal, the ProjectPhone will ring briefly before automatically connecting to the network. Note The PJP-MC24 builds the network topology at the start of the conference, so participants will not be able to connect to the product before it has established a connection with them.
