•Pre-Installation Procedure Guidelines for Initial Network Setup
The Cisco TelePresence meeting solution combines audio, video, and interactive elements to create the feeling of being "in person" with participants in remote locations.
To enable these features, you must ensure the system components are meeting the system version requirements. These are described in the next section.
Before you proceed with Cisco TelePresence Manager (CTS-Manager) installation, the servers and applications within your telecommunications network must be configured so that CTS-Manager can find the resources and information needed to initialize the installation. These servers and applications may include one or more of the following:
•Cisco TelePresence System endpoints
•Cisco Unified Communications Manager
–Other calendar server via Scheduling API
–IBM Lotus Notes
–Other scheduling client via Scheduling API
For details on the software versions supported, refer to: Cisco TelePresence Manager Specifications and System Requirements
•When you install CTS-Manager, the Cisco Media Convergence Server hard drive is formatted, and any existing data on the drive is overwritten.
•Cisco recommends you configure the system using static IP addressing for easier management.
•To use HD Interop, all Cisco TelePresence System endpoints must be running software version 1.6 or later.
