Interoperability Between CTS Endpoints and Other Endpoints or Devices

Last Revised: February 14, 2014

What’s New

  • February 14, 2014: Added compatibility information for Cisco TelePresence Administration software releases TX 6.0 and 1.10.4.
  • January 31, 2014—Added compatibility information for Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) Release 10.0.
  • April 8, 2013—Added pointers to interoperability information for systems that run Cisco TelePresence TX software release 6.0 and Cisco TelePresence Administration Software release 1.10.
  • February 28, 2013—Removed compatibility with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) version 8.5.1
  • February 27, 2013—Added compatibility for systems that are running Cisco TelePresence software release TX 6.0.
  • August 15, 2012—Changed Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) version in the compatibility tables from 8.6(2a)SU1 to 8.6(2a)SU3.

The SU3 version allows Binary Floor Control Protocol (BFCP) to be turned on or off in Unified CM for compatability with CTS systems that are running CTS software earlier than Release 1.8.

  • January 2012—Added support for CTS endpoints running 1.8 or later that are registered to the following call processing agent versions:

Unified CM version 8.6(2a)SU3

Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS) version X7.0.2

  • February 2012—Added support for CTS 1.8.1 endpoints.
  • March 2012—Added support for CTS 1.9.0 endpoints.
  • July 2012—Added support for CTS 1.9.1 endpoints.

TX 6.0 and CTS 1.10 Interoperability

For interoperability information about systems that run TX 6.0 software, refer to the “TX 6.0 Interoperability” section of the Cisco TelePresence TX System Software Version Compatibility and Interoperability with Other Devices—6.0.x Releases document.

For interoperatiliby information about systems that run CTS 1.10 software, refer to the “CTS 1.10 Interoperability” section of the Cisco TelePresence System Software Version Compatibility - 1.10 Releases document.

CTS 1.9.x Interoperability

This section summarizes video and audio quality; security; and presentation support between a Cisco TelePresence System (CTS) running version 1.9. x and another Cisco or third-party endpoint or device.

  • Cisco Unified CM Version —The first column in each table includes the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Cisco Unified CM) version that the CTS running 1.9. x is registered to.
  • With Endpoint/Device Version —The second column includes the endpoint or device in the same TelePresence meeting with the CTS running 1.9. x .

If an endpoint or device is registered to a Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS), the supported VCS version is listed. In this type of interoperability deployment, the Cisco Unified CM and VCS are connected by a SIP trunk.

  • Maximum Video and Audio —The third column includes the maximum video quality and the audio format in the interoperability deployment.

Maximum video resolution for an interop call between a CTS endpoint and another endpoint or device is 720p.

Video can be negotiated to a lower supported resolution that is based on the capabilities or configuration of other endpoints in the meeting.

Video for all interop calls is sent at 30 frames per second (fps) and received at a maximum of 30 fps.

  • Security —The fourth column indicates whether the call is secure or non-secure.
  • Presentation —The fifth column indicates presentation support.

In switched presentation mode, when a meeting participant is sharing a presentation, the other meeting participant (or participants) sees the presentation instead of the main video.

CTS endpoints can send presentation at the following resolutions:

CTS 500-32, CTS 1300-47, CTS TX1310 65, CTS TX9000, and CTS TX9200: 1024 x 768 (XGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), or 640 x 480 (VGA)

All other CTS endpoints: XGA

If the remote endpoint does not support the transmitted resolution, the CTS displays a message stating that the remote endpoint does not support presentation. The main video stream continues to be displayed on the remote endpoint.


Note The Cisco and third-party endpoint, device, and call signaling agent versions outlined in Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3 are tested and known to interoperate.
The Cisco and third-party endpoint, device, and call signaling agent versions not explicitly mentioned in these tables can interoperate successfully. If an unexpected issue occurs, the Technical Assistance Center (TAC) will help you identify the root cause. These calls must come from customers with a valid support agreement.

CTS 1.9.x Interoperability with Third-Party Endpoints and Devices

Cisco TelePresence endpoints are designed to work with any standards-based (SIP and H.264) endpoint and any TelePresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP) device.

Cisco tests interoperability with TIP devices and other standards-based endpoints based on market priority. The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) accepts calls related to interoperability with third-party endpoints and devices to troubleshoot and identify the root cause of issues. These calls must come from customers with a valid support agreement. When appropriate, Cisco will engage third-party vendors to resolve interoperability issues. Also when appropriate, Cisco will document known issues in software release notes.

Table 2 summarizes the third-party endpoints and devices tested with CTS 1.9.0, while Table 3 summarizes the third-party endpoints and devices tested with CTS 1.9.1 and above.

18.To support CTS 1.7.4 through 1.7.6 endpoints and also endpoints that use BFCP for presentation sharing, you must run Cisco Unified CM 8.6(2a)SU3.

21.Although a Cisco E20 endpoint running version TE 4.1 is capable of receiving BFCP presentation, a CTS endpoint running version 1.8.x might not be able to send BFCP presentation to the E20 endpoint. Caveat that tracks this issue: CSCtu75116.

CTS 1.7.4 Through 1.7.6 Interoperability with Other Cisco Endpoints or Devices

Table 5 summarizes video and audio quality; security; and presentation support between a Cisco TelePresence System (CTS) running version 1.7.4 through 1.7.6 and other Cisco endpoints or devices.

  • Cisco Unified CM Version —The first column in the table includes the version of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Cisco Unified CM) to which the CTS running 1.7.4 through 1.7.6 is registered.

Note CTS 1.7.4 through 1.7.6 works with Cisco Unified CM 8.0. However, Cisco Unified CM 8.5 or 8.6.1 is required for interoperability with non-CTS endpoints.


  • With Endpoint/Device Version —The second column includes the endpoint or device in the same TelePresence meeting with the CTS running 1.7.4 through 1.7.6.

If an endpoint or device is registered to a Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS), the supported VCS version is listed. In this type of interoperability deployment, the Cisco Unified CM and VCS are connected by a SIP trunk.

  • Maximum Video and Audio —The third column includes the maximum video quality and the audio format in the interoperability deployment.

Maximum video resolution for an interop call between a CTS endpoint and another Cisco endpoint or device is 720p.

Video can be negotiated to a lower supported resolution that is based on the capabilities or configuration of other endpoints in the meeting.

Video for all interop calls is sent at 30 frames per second (fps) and received at a maximum of 30 fps.

  • Security —The fourth column indicates whether the call is secure or non-secure.
  • Presentation —The fifth column indicates presentation support.

In switched presentation mode, when a meeting participant is sharing a presentation, the other meeting participant (or participants) sees the presentation instead of the main video.

CTS endpoints support presentation only at 1024 x 768. If the remote endpoint does not support 1024 x 768, the CTS displays a message stating that the remote endpoint does not support presentation. The main video stream continues to be displayed on the remote endpoint.

22.We recommend that you install and assign the Cisco Unified CM “vcs-interop” SIP Normalization script to make calls between CTS endpoints and endpoints and devices registered to VCS. Cisco Unified CM 8.5 and CTS 1.7.x do not support the Binary Flow Control Protocol (BFCP). Alternatively, you can turn off BFCP. Caveat that tracks this issue: CSCtn79239.Refer to the CTS 1.7.x release notes for more information:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps8332/prod_release_notes_list.html
For more information about the Cisco Unified CM script, see this document:

23.When an MXP 1700 or MXP 3000 is configured as an H.323 endpoint and calls a CTS 1.7.4 through 1.7.6 endpoint registered to CUCM 8.6.1, the call drops. Caveat that tracks this issue: CSCtr58148.

24.Although the MXP is capable of 720p resolution, we recommend that you configure the MXP for 448p. Caveat that tracks this issue: CSCtn53452. Refer to the CTS 1.7.x release notes for more information:
