Media Termination Point Configuration


A Media Termination Point (MTP) software device allows the Cisco CallManager to extend supplementary services, such as hold and transfer, to calls that are routed through an H.323 endpoint or an H.323 gateway.

MTP, a Cisco software application, installs on a server during the software installation process. You must activate and start the Cisco IP Voice Media Streaming App service on the server on which you configure the MTP device. For information on activating and starting services, refer to the Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide.

Each MTP device that is defined in the database registers with the Media Resource Manager (MRM). The MRM keeps track of the total available MTP devices in the system and of which devices have available resources.

During resource reservation, the MRM determines the number of resources and identifies the media type (in this case, the MTP) and the location of the registered MTP device. The MRM updates its share resource table with the registration information and propagates the registered information to the other Cisco CallManagers within the cluster.

The MTP and transcoder can register with the same Cisco CallManager. See the "Transcoder Configuration" section on page 29-1 for more information.

Each MTP receives a list of Cisco CallManagers, in priority order, to which it should attempt to register. Each MTP can register with only one Cisco CallManager at a time.

Use the following topics to add, update, and delete MTPs:
