Cisco VCS Control
Cisco VCS Control delivers any-to-any enterprisewide conference and session management and interworking
capabilities. It extends the reach of telepresence conferences by enabling interworking between Session Initiation
Protocol (SIP)- and H.323-compliant endpoints, interworking with third-party endpoints; it integrates with Cisco
Unified CM and supports third-party IP private-branch-exchange (IP PBX) solutions.
Cisco VCS Control implements the tools required for creative session management, including definition of aspects
such as routing, dial plans, and bandwidth usage, while allowing organizations to define call-management
applications, customized to their requirements.
