Telepresence for ISDN and External Networks
The Cisco TelePresence ISDN Link is a compact appliance for in-room ISDN and external network connectivity supporting Cisco TelePresence EX, MX, SX, and C Series endpoints. It provides direct connectivity to ISDN or external networks (V.35) for individual telepresence endpoints without the need for additional gateways or other infrastructure. The ISDN Link helps ensure that ISDN can be used as the primary, backup, or external connectivity for a high-quality and reliable telepresence experience.
Features and Capabilities
- Smooth connectivity for IP-to-ISDN or IP-to-V.35 networks
- Support for up to four Basic Rate Interface (BRI) or one Primary Rate Interface (PRI) ISDN ports and external networks (cable standards V.35, RS530, RS449, and RS366)
- Easy setup and configuration directly through the endpoint's web interface (for endpoints with advanced support)
- ISDN connectivity for one endpoint, eliminating the need to buy an additional gateway
In addition to the ISDN link, Cisco's TelePresence ISDN gateway solutions can be used when there is more than one endpoint that needs access to a telepresence solution. They offer simplified integration between IP and ISDN networks with complete feature transparency, including for high definition (HD) video, content sharing, and encryption.
