Cisco TelePresence Conductor Support

This topic describes the Cisco TelePresence Conductor support.

Conference scheduling is available with Cisco TMS 14.3 and Cisco TelePresence Conductor XC2.2

  • Only conference monitoring was available previously.
  • Multipoint control unit registered to Cisco VCS is managed by Cisco TelePresence Conductor and scheduled by Cisco TMS.

In future versions, Cisco TelePresence Conductor can be connected with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (TMS) will be able to schedule conferences as well. With Cisco TelePresence Conductor, the conferencing management is virtualized, separated from the physical hardware, and managed centrally in Cisco TelePresence Conductor.

Limitations and recommendations for Cisco TelePresence Conductor are as follows:

  • Cisco TMS cannot properly reserve ports for meetings that are scheduled by Cisco TelePresence Conductor.
  • As a result, conference resources are not assured.
  • The recommendation for scheduled meetings is to directly manage and schedule the Cisco TelePresence Server and multipoint control units with Cisco TMS.
