Product Overview

The Cisco TelePresence Advanced Media Gateway 3610 (Cisco ® AM GW 3610) is a high-definition (HD) media gateway that enables businesses to get better value from their existing video and collaboration infrastructure. Combined with the Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (Cisco VCS), the Cisco AM GW 3610 is the first and most comprehensive network-centric solution that enables true HD communication between Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and Microsoft Lync Server users and standards-based telepresence and video conferencing devices. Individuals and teams can now use familiar business tools to collaborate in high definition across the enterprise (Figures 1 and 2).
