Q. What is the difference between encryption 'Best Effort' on the TANDBERG Codec and encryption 'Auto' on the MXP platform?
A. This answer is valid for the following products:
TANDBERG Codec C20
TANDBERG Codec C60
TANDBERG Codec C90
The difference will be in MultiSite calls.
On the MXP platform with Encryption set to Auto: If one of the participants is not able to do encryption in the MultiSite, then none of the participants will be encrypted.
On TelePresence Product with Encryption set to Best Effort: All participants which are able to do encryption will be encrypted. Thereby, you can have a MultiSite with a mix of encrypted and unencrypted sites.
