Cisco Unified Call Manager 8.6.2 with CTS 1.8 720p Lite

When a CTS 1.8 endpoint that is configured to 720p Lite is registered to Cisco Unified CM 8.6.2, calls in secure mode sometimes drop. To work around this issue, either configure the CTS 1.8 720p Lite endpoint to non-secure mode or register the endpoint to Cisco Unified CM 8.6.1.

Adding or Removing a Presentation Codec

When you add or remove a CTS presentation codec in the system configuration, you must do so from the Cisco Unified CM Administration interface. After the configuration change is complete, click Reset to sync this configuration change with the CTS codec. See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System.

ASR and GSR Support

Only Aggregation Service Router (ASR) 3.2 is supported with CTS Release 1.8.0. The Gigabit Switch Router (GSR) is not supported.

Audio Echo Cancellation (AEC) on the CTS 500-32 and CTS 500-37

The Enable Audio Echo Cancellation (AEC) checkbox in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration is not available for CTS 500-32 and CTS 500-37 systems running Unified CM version 8.5 and higher. To enable or disable AEC on these systems, use the set audio aec disable and set audio aec enable command-line interface (CLI) commands, as shown in this example:

1. Enable or disable AEC:

admin:set audio aec disable
 
   
AEC support state changed to disabled
 
   

2. Restart calling services to have this take effect:

admin:utils service restart Calling_Services
 
   
Calling_Services   Restarting...done
admin:
 
   

3. Verify the configuration:

admin:show config all
 
   
Enable AEC              : Disabled 
 
   

See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System for more information.

Broadband Service Support

Customers can deploy Cisco TelePresence endpoints over Premium Broadband (Internet) such as business-class cable, FIOS, or E1 over the top. This gives customers flexibility to operate Cisco TelePresence across a variety of new connections.

All CTS endpoints and infrastructure must be upgraded to a minimum of Cisco TelePresence release 1.7 when broadband systems are deployed. Cisco TelePresence release 1.7 provides additional features to address the higher jitter and possible packet loss commonly found on broadband networks. Mixing CTS 1.7 systems with previous versions will disable the required CTS broadband network features, negatively affecting meeting quality, especially in multipoint meetings.

Calendaring on the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12

If the administrator leaves the roomName field blank in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, the device calendaring features will not be managed by CTS-Manager. The Meetings button is not available on the touch device when the roomName field is blank.

Cisco TelePresence MIDlet File Naming Convention

When downloading MIDlet .jad and .jar files, use caution to avoid typos. Some files use a hyphen in the file string (" - ") and some use a period (" ").

For example:

TSPM-1.8.2-P1-1S.jar

TSPM-1.8.2-P1-1S.jad


Note You must be running a minimum of Cisco Unified CM Release 7.0.2 to use MIDlets.


Cisco TelePresence T Series Endpoint Security

The Cisco TelePresence T Series endpoints do not register natively as secure endpoints; only non-secure mode is supported when talking to Unified CM.

Digital Media Player (DMP) Advisory

The DMP is always functional no matter the configuration on the Administration Web interface. The DMP Audio Administration configuration is set to indicate whether the audio will behave as a digital media player or as a PC; it does not turn the DMP capabilities on or off.

If the configuration is set to PC, the audio (whether coming from a DMP or a laptop) may be streamed to remote endpoints during a call. If the configuration is set to DMP, the audio (whether coming from a DMP or a laptop) may not be streamed to remote endpoints during a call.

The DMP button may not be visible after hours. See CSCtu19709.

Directory Settings in Unified CM

MIDlet does not support non UTF-8 characters so ensure that you use valid characters when updating the Directory feature in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration interface.

End-of-Sale and End-of-Life Products

Customers with active service contracts will continue to receive support from the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) for the following products

Headset Support

Headsets are supported on the CTS 500 Series only.

Idle Display Field in Unified CM

Idle Display is a mandatory field in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration interface. Specify any of the following options in the Idle Display field:

Default Detailed

Manual

Directory

Favorites

Default Simple

Interoperability Updates

Security in a point-to-point call is supported between a CTS 1.8 endpoint and each of the following:

Cisco TelePresence TC endpoint—Secure or non-secure, depending on the configuration of the Cisco TC endpoint.

Cisco Unified IP Phones—Secure.

Any of the Cisco interop endpoints listed in the matrix below—Non-secure.

For information on Cisco interop endpoints, see the Interoperability Between CTS Endpoints and Other Cisco Endpoints or Devices on Cisco.com.

Participant List Check Boxes

The check boxes next to active meeting participants on the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 are view only; you cannot check or uncheck the entries.

Phone Screen Capture via Cisco Unified CM

Because the CTS codec is no longer the authentication server for the phone and cannot be used to obtain screenshots of the phone for diagnostics, you will need to create an End User profile to manage the phones and capture a screenshot. See the "Obtaining a Screenshot From the MIDlets Phone" section of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System.

Registering VLAN

If you want the CTS to autoconfigure itself with a VLAN without network interaction, set the Administrative VLAN in the Cisco TelePresence System Administration interface. To view or configure the administrative VLAN ID in the administration GUI, choose Configuration > Network Settings. See the Cisco TelePresence System Administration Guide for more information.

Resetting the CTS Factory Image

When you change the CTS model while performing configuration tasks in the administration interface (switching from a CTS 1000 to a CTS 1300-65, for instance), the CTS automatically reboots.

Resetting the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975 Factory Image

Occasionally, an unexpected phone power cycle can occur during a CTS endpoint upgrade. During CTS endpoint upgrades, the CTS briefly powers off the phone then brings it back up when upgrade is complete. But if the phone power cycle is occurring at the same time, the phone's firmware image can be damaged and the phone will not power back on. This can also occur when upgrading the phone MIDlet.

To avoid this problem, schedule CTS endpoint or MIDlet upgrades when the phone is not in power cycle mode. If you encounter a phone that will not power back on after a CTS endpoint or MIDlet upgrade, perform a phone factory reset to restore the firmware image. For more information, see the Resetting the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970 Series Factory Image section of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System.

SCCP and SIP Phone Firmware Upgrades

For all SCCP and SIP firmware upgrades from firmware release versions earlier than 8.3(3) to version 8.5(3) or a later release, you must first upgrade your firmware to version 8.5(2). Once you have upgraded to version 8.5(2), you can upgrade your Cisco Unified IP Phone to version 8.5(3) or a later release.

See the Installation Notes section of the Cisco Unified IP Phone Release Notes for Firmware Release 8.5(3) (SCCP and SIP) for download instructions.

Setting the Device Type

By default the primary codec defaults to CTS 1000. To perform camera calibration on a CTS 3010/3020 if your system is not registered to the Unified CM, use the set ctstype <3000 3010 ...)> command. Whenever possible register your device to the Unified CM to configure the correct device type before calibrating the camera.

Single Microphone Mute

Single microphone mute is available with software upgrades beginning with Cisco Unified CM firmware release 8.0.3. This feature is configured using a disable/enable check box in the Cisco Unified CM Administration interface.

See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System.

SIP Max Incoming Message Size

You must set the SIP Max Incoming Message Size in Unified CM SIP to be greater than 5K. Otherwise it can cause issues with multiple hold/resume in interop calls with VCS and security. Cisco recommends setting it to 11000.

Updated Presentation Capability and Notification

If the remote endpoint does not support a 1024x768 presentation stream, the Not Sharing Presentation icon (a laptop with a slash through it) is displayed on the main screen along with the following message:

"Remote participant cannot receive presentation."

While the CTS negotiates a lower frame rate, the following message appears:

"Please wait to receive video. Still sending video."

Video resumes once the frame rate is negotiated. If the video takes longer to negotiate, the following message appears:

"Unable to receive video. Still sending video."

Upgrading from a Cisco Unified IP Phone to a Cisco TelePresence Touch 12

For instructions on upgrading from a Cisco Unified IP Phone to a Cisco TelePresence Touch 12, see the "Upgrading From a Cisco Unified IP Phone to a Cisco TelePresence Touch 12" chapter of the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 User Guide.

Upgrading from CTS Release 1.7 to CTS Release 1.8


Note If you are upgrading from any CTS release prior to 1.8.0 and using the Touch 12 device, refer to the "Understanding COP and Loads Files for the Cisco TelePresence System" chapter of the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 Installation Guide.


When upgrading from any CTS 1.7 release to CTS Release 1.8.0, the system automatically upgrades slot 0 to CTS 1.8.0 if the existing CTS release in slot 0 is lower than CTS 1.8.0. Some systems upgrade more quickly than others:

Cisco 3x00 Series, Cisco 1100, and Cisco 1300—Upgrade completes in approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Cisco 500-32 and Cisco 1300-47—Upgrade completes in approximately 4 minutes and 30 seconds.

Viewing Presentations on Laptops

The VGA cable interface requires a 60 hertz refresh rate, but some laptops receive 60hz but do not send 60hz. For best results when viewing presentation displays on your laptop, try the following:

Perform an Fn+F7 to disable the presentation first and then use Fn+F7 to enable the presentation again (not necessary on Mac systems).

Set the refresh rate in the monitor settings to something other than 60hz, then set it back to 60hz.

Make sure that you have set your laptop resolution to 1024 x 768.

Web Access

To avoid having to start the Cisco TelePresence application manually after uploading the new image or restarting the CTS, make sure that web access has been enabled in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration interface. See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System for more information.

Web Browser Support

Cisco administration interfaces are supported on Internet Explorer (IE) version 6 (recommended).

WebEx Presentation

If the Cisco TelePresence room already has a presentation cable plugged in once the Cisco WebEx client stops presenting, the display in the room switches to the Cisco WebEx welcome screen rather than to automatic presentation. Cisco TelePresence room presentation is automatically active only if the Cisco TelePresence room plugs in the presentation cable again after a remote participant has presented.

WebEx Presentations with Cisco TelePresence Touch 12

When a Cisco TelePresence room is in a Cisco WebEx meeting, once the Cisco WebEx client has stopped sharing a presentation, the Cisco TelePresence room must plug the presentation cable in or unplug it then plug it back in again for the Cisco TelePresence room to take over the presentation role.

BFCP over UDP Collaboration Support

Binary Floor Control Protocol (BFCP) is used for controlling access to the media resources in a meeting. BFCP allows the CTS and the remote endpoint to view presentation and main display video simultaneously with improved presentation resolution for all third-party telepresence endpoints.

The CTS offers three media lines: one for audio, one for the main video, and the other for presentation or content using the session description protocol (SDP). Additionally, an application line is sent in the SDP for the BFCP control channel. The bandwidth of the presentation media line matches the capability of the CTS. For example, if the CTS is capable of 30 fps, the presentation media line bandwidth will be 4Mbps.


Note The CTS uses BFCP over user datagram protocol (UDP) in both secure and non-secure BFCP modes. BFCP is supported in CTS Release 1.8 and supports only Unified CM release 8.6.1.


To enable BFCP, the trunk from the Cisco Video Communication Server (VCS) to Unified CM must have a custom BFCP profile configured in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration interface. This profile needs to be associated with every trunk and device that will use BFCP for presentation.

To configure BFCP for presentation, you must do the following:

1. Configure the Cisco VCS Zone for Unified CM.

2. Create a BFCP SIP profile in Unified CM and check the "Allow Presentation Sharing using BFCP" box.

3. Choose your new BFCP SIP Profile from the SIP Profile drop-down menu in the Protocol Specific Information field in Unified CM.

4. Restart all CTS endpoints.

5. Select the VCS trunk in Unified CM and set it to use BFCP.

COP Files Download for Cisco TelePresence

The Cisco Options Package (COP) file is a mechanism for installing files on a Unified CM in a secure manner. COP files are zipped .tar files that the Unified CM verifies, unzips, and untars so that the contents can be installed in the Unified CM from either a local or a remote source. Unified CM automatically extracts the codec and device files from the COP file and applies them to your Cisco TelePresence system.


Tip Systems that are running Cisco TelePresence System software release 1.7.4 or 1.7.5 can use a COP file to upgrade and install their software with limited feature support. Full feature support is available in CTS Release 1.8.0. CTS Release 1.7.4, 1.7.5, and 1.8 continue to support .sbn and jar/jad files.


Find the COP file in the "Download" section of the Cisco support site for your product, located at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html

For more information about installing COP files in Unified CM, see the following documentation on Cisco.com:

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System

Understanding COP Files for the Cisco TelePresence System

Release Notes for the Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch, Release 1.8

Release notes for Cisco TelePresence Recording Server, Release 1.8

DHCP Option 60 Support

DHCP vendor class identifier option 60 identifies and associates a DHCP client with a particular vendor. Administrators can provision their systems with DHCP option 60 when providing converged services in their network environment. DHCP option 60 is enabled on a customer's DHCP server by the customer's administrator.

Multiple Cisco WebEx Sites

To allow more Cisco WebEx users to access meetings remotely, you can configure up to five Cisco WebEx servers with your CTS-Manager account. The meeting organizer can register the CTS-Manager with any one of the five configured Cisco WebEx servers.

See the Cisco TelePresence System Manager home page for support documentation.

Security Enhancements

CTS Release 1.8 introduces the following security enhancements:

Diffie-Hellman

Secure Icon Behavior

Session Parameters

Diffie-Hellman

To provide an additional level of security, Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) clients will offer RSA as well as the Diffie-Hellman (D-H) key exchange mechanism. If the remote endpoint supports D-H, then the handshake is performed using D-H. The DTLS handshake with endpoints running releases prior to CTS Release 1.7.4 and 1.8 perform the handshake using RSA. This modification enables two CTS 1.7.4 or CTS 1.8 endpoints communicating with Unified CM releases prior to 8.5 to perform the DTLS handshake using D-H. The CTS uses the signaling path to exchange the fingerprints of the certificate used in the DTLS handshake. The certificate received in the DTLS handshake will be validated using the fingerprints.

Secure Icon Behavior

In certain calls involving a conference bridge, Unified CM downgrades a call status to non-secure. This could happen when a non-secure endpoint joins a conference, which has been secure. Unified CM sends SIP updates to the CTS indicating that the call is non-secure. CTS shows the secure or non-secure icon (closed or open padlock image) if the media is set up to use either of the following:

SDP keys due to DTLS failure

DTLS keys have been exchanged using fingerprint


Note The SIP updates are be ignored if the call is using DTLS keys but the DTLS handshake is setup without fingerprints.


Session Parameters

Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) security defines a set of "session" parameters, which optionally can be used to override SRTP session defaults for the SRTP and Real-Time Transport Control Protocol (SRTCP) streams. These parameters configure an Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) session for SRTP services. The session parameter provides information required to establish the SRTP cryptographic context for the session. The CTS negotiates the SRTP session parameter and honors the negotiated parameters.

Unified CM/Cisco VCS Security Support

CTS Release 1.8 introduces support for secure calls with the Cisco TelePresence EX and Cisco TelePresence C Series endpoints through Unified CM/Cisco VCS deployment.

The network is set up as follows: CTS > Unified CM > Cisco VCS > Cisco TC

To configure security, the following conditions must be met:

You must be running the following software:

Unified CM 8.6 or a later release.

CTS endpoints—CTS Release 1.8 or a later release.

Cisco TC endpoints—Cisco TC5 or a later release.

Both the CTS and TC endpoints must be running in secure mode and be securely connected to their respective call managers.

The Cisco VCS and Unified CM must be connected through a secure trunk.

You must choose vcs-interop in the Normalization Script window while configuring the trunk profile in Unified CM.

See the following support documentation on Cisco.com:

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Configuration Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System

Cisco Unified Communications Manager with Cisco VCS Cisco TelePresence Deployment Guide

Watermark Removal

Broadcast customers who want to remove the Cisco logo from their video presentations when it interferes with on-screen elements can do so in the Unified CM Administration interface by downloading a broadcast license. Contact your account representative to obtain the license.

Addressing with CTS Deployments

Deploying CTS endpoints in a network with both 10.x.x.x addresses and 192.168.x.x addresses may result in routing errors.

CTS endpoints reside on two networks simultaneously; an "external" network by which it communicates with other CTS endpoints and the internet, and an "internal" network by which it communicates with internal devices such as cameras, UI devices, etc. When a CTS endpoint comes up, it tries to pick an internal network address that does not conflict with the external network's address space. By default, it uses several RFC 1918 Class C subnets (192.168.xx) to address internal devices. In the event that the External network is based out of a network with the 192.168 prefix, a RFC 1918 Class A subnet (10.0.xx) is used to address the internal devices. When a CTS endpoint sends a packet, it chooses the most specific route in its routing table. Thus, if there exist two devices with the same IP address, where one is on the internal network while the other is on the external network, all packets emanating from the CTS will be sent to the internal network rather than the external network.

In this case, when the CTS on the right tries to send a packet to the CTS on the left, it will instead be routed (internally, by the CTS) to the Peripheral that is directly attached.

BFCP Backward Compatibility

BFCP is not supported in CTS software releases prior to CTS Release 1.8. BFCP is enabled by default on all CTS endpoints beginning with CTS Release 1.8. Endpoints using CTS software prior to CTS Release 1.8 must either disable BFCP on all new SIP profiles in the Unified CM Administration interface or upgrade all CTS endpoints to CTS Release 1.8.

Black Bar During Presentation

Some telepresence systems do not accept presentations at the recommended 1024x576 resolution. Occasionally a black bar is displayed during a presentation.

Cisco TelePresence EX Series "Best Effort" Audio-Addin Support

Non secure audio-addin calls are dropped from the Cisco TelePresence EX Series automatically when Encryption is set to On in the Cisco TelePresence EX Series administration. Go to Configuration > Conference > Default Call > Encryption and select "Best Effort" from the drop-down menu then click Save to allow audio-addin calls to continue. Secure call settings are still supported on the CTS endpoint but you must configure the Cisco TelePresence EX Series for Best Effort if your conference will include audio-addin calls, which are non secure by default.

Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 Troubleshooting

Sometimes the Incoming Call window overlaps the incoming call override button during troubleshooting or the Incoming Call window does not automatically disappear. This is a cosmetic issue. Tap the available Answer, Ignore, or iDivert buttons or simply allow the call to ring until it ends automatically. Configure iDivert in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

Command-line Interface (CLI) Restrictions

Avoid using the following commands to collect call status logs while in an active call:

file tail

ipsla

tcpdump

Using these commands during an active CTS call can cause high CPU usage and may bring calls down.

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985

Cisco announces the end-of-sale and end-of life dates for the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985G.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6788/phones/ps379/end_of_life_notice_c51-586306.html

There are known interoperability issues between the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985 and the CTS 1300 Series; audio addin can cause the CTS main display to freeze.

Detect and Disconnect Audio Addin Calls

Occasionally an audio addin call remains listed on the meeting participant Conference List even though the call has dropped. Due to the call preservation feature, the CTS waits for the Unified CM to send a BYE message before dropping an audio addin call. The CTS can enact several mechanisms to detect when the audio addin has dropped, including dropping the call when the phone has been rebooted.

The CTS cannot support two audio addin calls at the same time.

Directory Entries for Cisco TelePresence Touch 12

When Directory entries are added or updated in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration interface, an erroneous LASTNAME entry is listed on the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12. This is a cosmetic issue that does not affect functionality; there is no last name entry requirement in the administration interface for directory listings.

Document Camera Swap

Make sure that you reset your CTS any time that you swap document cameras that are running different firmware versions. See CSCtt93919.

Double-talk on the Cisco TelePresence System

During double-talk (when both sides are talking simultaneously), two things happen:

1. The audio from the remote side is slightly lowered before it is played out of the speaker.

2. Echo cancellation removes some of the sound from the talkers.

Endpoints That Cannot Share or Receive Presentations

Some telepresence endpoints do not support the ability to share or receive presentations. If you encounter an endpoint that does not support presentations, the CTS displays the following notification on the main screen:

"Remote participant cannot receive presentation"

Limited Bandwidth Mode: 360p

You may see the "Limited Bandwidth Mode: 360p" option in the Unified CM administration Quality (per Display) field. This choice will be available in a future release and is not available in CTS Release 1.8.

MXP Support on the Cisco TelePresence System

Observe the following notes about the Cisco TelePresence System MXP Series:

The CTS sends 360p, receives 360p, and there is no presentation support.

The CTS sends 360p, receives CIF, and bidirectional presentation is supported.

The Cisco TelePresence System MXP 1000 SCCP does not support presentation.

Participant List Behavior in Large Meetings

A cosmetic issue occurs when there are more than five participants in the participant roster list on the Cisco Unified IP phone. Sometimes there are blank entries in the list as the user scrolls up and down to see the entire list. Feature functionality is not affected.

PiP Control

Some systems may show the Presentation-in-Picture (PiP) controls briefly while sharing presentations. Ordinarily PiP is not available during presentations. This is a cosmetic issue that occurs when the system tries to negotiate an unsupported DVI screen resolution.

Recording with Cisco TelePresence Touch 12

Sometimes the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 active meeting screen flashes momentarily when the recording window is opened in preparation for recording the meeting. This is a cosmetic issue that corrects itself in a few seconds and does not affect functionality.

SDP and SRTP with CTS Release 1.7.4 and CTS Release 1.8.0

Customers who are deploying their B2B infrastructure with secure trunks to ASR/SBC secured by using TLS/Encryption, may experience call drops unless specific scripts are installed and configured on the ASR/SBC devices. Once the scripts and configuration are in place, certain SDP attributes are manipulated to enable SBC to unblock the SIP messages to and from Unified CM.

The following is an overview of the configuration steps:

1. Upload attached srtp.lua script to your ASR1k.

2. Define two SDP editors, for example to_rtp_avp and to_rtp_savp.

3. Configure a script set, as shown in the following example:

script-set 2 lua
    script srtp
      filename bootflash:srtp.lua
      load-order 100
      type full
    complete
   active-script-set 2
 
   

4. Use the SDP editor on both the inbound and outbound adjacencies:

Ask SBC to modify the SDP calling to_rtp_avp before-receive

And calling to_rtp_savp after-send

editor-type editor
    editor-list before-receive
     editor 1 to_rtp_avp
    editor-list after-send
     editor 1 to_rtp_savp
 
   

5. Create three editor headers:

a. tp-to-x-supported

b. tp-to-supported

c. tp-add-x-srtp-fb

The first two are used in the inbound side, which will detect if any X-cisco-srtp-fallback tag gets into the supported header and then adds an srtp-fb header that includes the X-cisco-srtp-fallback tag (if present). The third one changes the internal srtp-fb header to the supported header prior to sending on the wire. The following is an example configuration:

adjacency sip peer2
    header-editor inbound tp-to-supported
    editor-list before-receive
     editor 1 to_rtp_avp
     editor 2 tp-to-x-supported
 
   
 adjacency sip peer1
    header-editor outbound tp-add-x-srtp-fb
 
   

See the following documents for support:

Business-to-Business Telepresence Configuration Profile Example

Sharing Presentations from the Cisco E20 IP Video Phone

The Cisco E20 IP Video Phone does not support BFCP for 1024x768 presentation and therefore the CTS cannot send presentations to the Cisco E20 (CSCtu75116).

CSCtz40953

A remote code execution vulnerability in the implementation of the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) component could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. The vulnerability is due to a failure to properly handle malformed CDP packets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by passing malformed CDP packets to an affected device. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Because CDP works at the data link layer (Layer 2), an attacker must have a way to submit an Ethernet frame directly to an affected device. This action may be possible in situations where the affected system is part of a bridged network or connected to a non partitioned device, such as a network hub.

This issue was disclosed in the following Cisco Security Advisories:

Symptom    Cisco TelePresence systems display the time in UTC format instead of in local time.

Conditions   This condition has been seen on the CTS 500-32 or CTS 1300-47 platforms.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtz14870

Symptom    Display firmware not being upgraded.

Conditions   On systems with Sampo F13 65" diplays running display firmware version 31.46, the firmware is not upgraded to verion 31.47 when CTS Release 1.8.2 is installed.


Note To determine if a Sampo F13 65" display is installed on a CTS endpoint, log into the CTS Administration software, and from the Device Information page, click System Information Details button.

Symptom    Cisco Jabber Video for TelePresence (Movi) drops the call on CTS 3000 hold/resume.

Conditions   This occurs when Movi is set to ForceTlsNoSrtp and the CTS is set to encrypted.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtx38646

Symptom    Scheduled static calls between the CTS and Polycom results in no presentation.

Conditions   This occurs when a static point-to-multipoint call is manually dialed from the CTS. Polycom presentation is active from the CTS but fails to be seen on the Polycom.

Workaround   Unshare and then share the presentation again.


CSCtx62312

Symptom    Hold/Resume from the CTS shows frozen video from Cisco Jabber Video for TelePresence (Movi) for 10 seconds.

CSCtx41146

Symptom    CTS calls Cisco Jabber Video for TelePresence (Movi) but there is no video on CTS after a hold/resume.

Conditions   This occurs on both PC and Mac. The CTS is connected to Cisco Jabber (Movi) and a hold/resume on the CTS results in no video on the CTS. Cisco Jabber (Movi) is sending and receiving video resolution at 1280 X 720.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtw50738

Symptom    No video on the Cisco Roundtable (RT) phone 9971/9951/8961.

Conditions   This occurs in a one way video call between the CTS and the RT phone over a secure SIP trunk. The call seems to be secure, showing the lock icon on both the RT and the CTS, but there is no video on the RT phone. This could be due to a Unified CM version mismatch if the remote endpoint does not support BFCP.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtx38628

Symptom    Polycom does not disconnect static non-secure calls.

Conditions   Video freezes and the non-secure static call does not disconnect.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtx17774

Symptom    Calls can drop if a secure CTS does a hold/resume with non-secure endpoints/MCU.

Conditions   .In CTS Release 1.7.4, it was helpful to do a media hold/resume to avoid interop issues with Cisco TelePresence Codec (TC4) software.

Workaround   The release of the Cisco TelePresence Codec (TC5) solves the potential interop issues and there is no need to do a media hold/resume on the TC5.


CSCtu75116

Symptom    CTS cannot share presentations with the Cisco E20 IP Video Phone.

Conditions   The E20 does not support Rx BFCP presentation at 1024x768 resolution, so the SDP does not signal this capability and the presentation is not shared. This affects CTS software releases 1.7.4 and later releases.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtx19741

Symptom    Phones with mismatched load report incorrect for CTS endpoints.

Conditions   Phones with Mismatched Loads Unified Report on Unified CM reports that CTS endpoints are not running the correct load when they are. Occurs for any CTS endpoints registered with Unified CM when attempting to view the Phones with Mismatched Loads Unified Report.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


Resolved Caveats in CTS Release 1.8.1

CSCtu82870

Symptom    Intermittent horizontal black bars at call start.

Conditions   The bars disappear after 30-45 seconds. This occurs with CTS software release 1.7.4 and later releases.

Workaround   End call immediately and call again or wait 30-45 seconds for the bars to disappear.


CSCtu07566

Symptom    Directory hard button does not work.

Conditions   When pressing the Directory button on the CTS Cisco Unified IP Phone, the following message appears: "Unable to connect to directory, please try again." This can occur on any CTS running software release 1.7.x or higher when registered with Unified CM 8.6.2a. CTS Release 1.7.4 does not support Unified CM8.6.2.

Solution   CTS Release 1.8.x now supports Unified CM 8.6.2.

Workaround   Check that you are running compatible Unified CM firmware for your release. Use the Directory softkey on the phone instead of the Directory button on the touch pad.


CSCtu24513

Symptom    Call drop due to system overload with unintended SSH session.

Conditions   When the system is overload during a call, an unintended or runaway SSH session can occur due to lost control from remote user. This condition can contribute even more system load and impair the codec, causing abnormal function. For example, checkServices receive a timeout from subroutines resulting in a call drop.

Workaround   Clean up runaway SSH sessions proactively to reduce the system overload.


CSCtv17399

Symptom    No media received for secure call between CTS Release 1.7.2 and CTS Release 1.7.5.

Conditions   When the call is in secure mode, the CTS display remains blank and logs report that no media was received on either side. When the same call is made in unsecured mode, the media flows as expected. Adding audio add-in made the call non-secure and the media started flowing.

Workaround   Use non secure mode and audio add in to make calls between these two CTS software releases.

Symptom    CTS fails to register to CUCM when the CUCM cluster contains more than 4 nodes.

Conditions   When inter-device security is enabled, the CTS can only cache four certificate entries in the CTL file. When the CTS tries to register a fifth CUCM node, it cannot cache the fifth certificate entry, and registration fails.

Workaround   Contact Cisco TAC for a resolution to this issue.


CSCtw93670

Symptom    Loss of camera status communication is seen after 22 days of system uptime.

Conditions   The CTS 500-32 reports a camera error after 22 or more days of uptime. A similar issue occurs on the CTS 1300-47. This occurs on systems that use both the Cisco Unified IP Phone and the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 call control devices. Systems that use the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 cannot make calls and must be reset from Unified CM or power cycled. Systems using the Cisco Unified IP phone with MIDlets can still make calls, though camera status will show an error state.

Workaround   Reset the CTS from the Unified CM administration or power cycle the device to clear the camera status error.


CSCtw45493

Symptom    Mtg Ctrl softkey disappears after 2-3 minutes in a telepresence meeting.

Conditions   The Mtg Ctrl softkey was no longer showing on the Cisco Unified IP phone two to three minutes after a meeting was started.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtr92400

Symptom    Encrypted CTS call may break after hold/resume with packet loss

Conditions   Sometimes Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) negotiation fails between the Cisco TelePresence Server and the CTS. Under some circumstances, media services are restarted if invalid video is sent to the CTS.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtq70191

Symptom    Call drops in a multipoint (CTMS) meeting after a hold/resume.

Conditions   This occurred in CTMS Release 1.7.2(75) with the following Unified CM scenario in place for the call: 8.5 > 8.6 > 8.5 trunk in call.

Workaround   End the call and call back.


CSCtt09629

Symptom    Non-secure endpoints cannot connect to secure endpoints over SBC path.

Conditions   The following message appears on the main display: "The call has been dropped because resources are not available" making a non-secure call from a non-secure endpoint to a secure endpoint over two different setups. When the same type of call is made without the Session Border Controller (SBC) or Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE), the call goes through fine.

Workaround   There is no workaround.


CSCtt22889

Symptom    Unified CM (CUCM) 8.6 and session bandwidth issue in CTS-to-CTS call.

Conditions   Media level bandwidth for video line and content line are the same for calls. Even if remote indicates the content line should have lesser bandwidth. Point-to-Point call with CTS, where CTS advertises lower presentation media bandwidth.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 Resolved Caveats in CTS Release 1.8.0

There are no known resolved caveats in this release.

Caveats in Prior CTS Releases

See the Cisco TelePresence Administration Software Release Notes home page on Cisco.com for information about prior CTS releases:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps8332/prod_release_notes_list.html

Supported CTS Auxiliary Devices

This section contains auxiliary devices that can be used with the Cisco TelePresence System:

Displays

Document Cameras

Projectors

Video Signal Splitters

Displays

Cisco TelePresence systems are designed to work with any Full HD monitor that connects to the system using a standard HDMI or DVI interface. Note that the connector on the TelePresence side is an HDMI connector, so either an HDMI-to-HDMI cable or an HDMI-to-DVI cable is required.

Cisco highly recommends the use of commercial or professional-grade displays with your Immersive TelePresence system. Off-the-shelf consumer displays or TV monitors are not recommended, as they typically have shorter life spans and require a remote control to operate.

When qualifying a display for use with your TelePresence system, consider the following:

The display should offer native support for 1080p60 over an HDMI or DVI interface.

The display should become active when a video signal is presented, and should go to sleep when no video signal is presented.

The display should not require any user interaction (such as a remote control or button press) to become active from standby, sleep or deep sleep modes.

The ability to switch off On-Screen Display (OSD) messages is highly desirable. No error messages, status messages or splash screens should be visible on the screen when a presentation image is shared or unshared.

If the display supports multiple inputs, the ability to lock the display to a given input is highly desirable. Otherwise, the time required to show presentation content can be unpredictable. If automatic scanning of ports is supported, the feature should be disabled.

Document Cameras

The following WolfVision document cameras have been tested for use with Cisco TelePresence Systems:

VZ-C12 (Ceiling mounted)

VZ-C32 (Ceiling mounted)

VZ-C323 (Third Generation product line)

VZ-9plus (Desktop unit)

VZ-123 (All)

Projectors

The following projectors are supported:

Sanyo PLV-Z60—CTS 3000 and CTS 3200 systems.

Sanyo PLV-Z700—CTS 3000 and CTS 3200 systems.


Note Cisco maintains support for the Sanyo PLV-Z4 and Sanyo PLV-Z5 projector models in older CTS configurations.


Video Signal Splitters

The following video signal splitters have been tested for use with the CTS:

GEFEN EXT-HDMI-144

EXT-HDMI-144-BLK

GEFEN EXT-HDMI1.3-144

GEFEN GTV-HDMI1.3-144


Note Using External Devices with Your Cisco TelePresence System—Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of any external device, so Cisco recommends that you choose good quality external devices to optimize CTS performance.

The CTS works best when suitable devices are attached using good quality cables and connectors. Cisco does not supply the cable that connects auxiliary devices to the codec.



Caution In European Union countries, use only devices that are fully compliant with the EMC Directive [2004/108/EC].

For information about managing video signal splitters, see the Routing Power and Signal Cables chapters of the following guides on Cisco.com:
