Call license requirements for a Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (Cisco VCS) acting as the directory gatekeeper in a hierarchical dial plan
Our recommended deployment is for your directory Cisco VCS to be a Cisco VCS Control residing inside the firewall, connected to a traversal server outside the firewall. In this configuration, the directory Cisco VCS will not have any endpoints registered to it, and all other systems within your network are connected to it via zones.
Any calls between endpoints in your internal network that reside in different zones will pass through the directory Cisco VCS Control. Such calls may use either a non-traversal (local) call license or a traversal call license, depending on the nature of the call.
Any calls between your local network and outside the firewall will pass through the directory Cisco VCS Control and these will always use a traversal call license.
A Cisco VCS Control comes with 100 traversal calls and 10 local calls, so you may need to purchase further licenses depending on the volume of calls in your network. Contact your Cisco TelePresence representative for further information.
For more information on what constitutes traversal and non-traversal calls, see the What are traversal calls section of the online help or Cisco VCS Administrator Guide.
