What's New in this Release
This section describes new and changed information in Cisco TelePresence Manager for Release 1.9:
New in Release 1.9:
•Network Multipoint for Scheduled Meetings
CTS-Manager now supports scheduled network multipoint meetings. A maximum of 11 CTMS devices and 440 segments are supported in a meeting. CTMS Network Multipoint is enabled by logging in to the CTS-Manager Administrative Web UI and going to the Configure > Application Settings > Bridges and Servers tab.
For more information, see the CTMS Network Multipoint 1.9 Design Guide for release 1.9, at the following URL:
•WebEx OneTouch Meeting Scheduling with WebEx Productivity Tools for Microsoft Outlook
Meeting organizers can schedule TelePresence meetings with WebEx directly in Microsoft Outlook using the WebEx Productivity Tools plug-in. Logging into CTS-Manager is not required.
•Device Grouping in CTS-Manager
You can group endpoints with CTMS devices, so that when a meeting is scheduled, CTS-Manager reserves devices from the same group as the endpoint(s). Grouping is especially useful for large geographically-dispersed companies with many endpoints and CTMS devices. Groups are created and managed by logging in to the CTS-Manager Administrative Web UI and going to Configure > Device Groups.
Multiple instances of CTS-Manager and CTMS can now be installed as virtual machines on the UCS C210 M2 server using VMware ESXi 4.1.
–1 CTS-Manager and 1 CTMS can be installed on a single UCS server.
–CTS-Manager with up to 2 instances on a single server, for service provider deployments with no more then 50 endpoints under management per instance of CTS-Manager.
•Support for CTX without external LDAP
CTX to CTS-Manager integration using scheduling API no longer requires and LDAP/AD server for authentication.
•Clustering Support Discontinued
Cisco no longer provides support for the clustering feature originally introduced in release 1.8.
