Introduction

This document describes the limitations with the use of certain T1s with a Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Control Unit (MCU).

Prerequisites

Requirements

Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:

  • Cisco TelePresence Codec C60
  • Cisco TelePresence Codec C90
  • Cisco TelePresence MCU 4500
  • Cisco TelePresence Servers

Components Used

The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:

  • Cisco TelePresence Codec C60
  • Cisco TelePresence Codec C90
  • Cisco TelePresence MCU 4500
  • Cisco TelePresence Servers

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Can you use a T1 with a Cisco TelePresence MCU?

Yes. However, certain limitations might apply based on the series of T1 you have.There are currently three variations of T1 systems:

  • First-generation T1s, which use a Codec C90
  • Cisco TelePresence System T1
  • Cisco TelePresence System Profile 65, which uses a Cisco TelePresence System Codec C60

Cisco TelePresence System T1

The Cisco TelePresence System T1 can participate in conferences on the Cisco TelePresence MCU 4500 Series. However, these limitations apply:

  • You are not be able to see the immersive TelePresence layouts.
  • You cannot set up conferences automatically with the control panel.
  • You cannot change layouts.

The Cisco TelePresence System T1 solution has been developed to closely integrate with the Cisco TelePresence Server and is the recommended multipoint-infrastructure solution. TelePresence layouts are only available when you connect to a Cisco TelePresence Server (TS7010, Mobility Service Engine [MSE] 8710).

First-Generation T1s and Profile 65

First-generation T1s and Profile 65 can participate in conferences on the Cisco TelePresence MCU 4500 Series. The T1 functions as a normal endpoint that participates in a conference and, if you have a remote control, you can change layouts with the Far End Camera Control and set up conferences. You are not be able to see the TelePresence layouts unless you connect to a TelePresence Server (TS7010, MSE8710).
