Endpoint Capacity


Endpoint Capacity


Revised June 30, 2011

Three factors determine how many segments the Cisco TelePresence Exchange System reserves for an endpoint: the bridge type that handles the call (Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch or Cisco TelePresence MSE 8000 Series), the type of call (dial in or dial out), and the number of endpoint screens.

Table B-1 describes the number of segments that the Cisco TelePresence Exchange System reserves for a Meet-Me call given a number of variables.


Note The minimize capacity functionality is available only in Cisco TelePresence Exchange System Release 1.0(3) and later.
