The following graphic provides a view of the Remote Expert Solution topology.
The Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) is used in this call flow to fork the media to Cisco MediaSense recording.
The Remote Expert Solution testbed has two data centers separated across a private WAN. It also has Cisco Interactive Experience Client, Cisco TelePresence System 500-32 (500-32), and Cisco TelePresence System EX60 and EX90 (EX60 and EX90).
The Remote Expert Solution creates a virtual face-to-face communication through the Cisco Interactive Experience Client 4600 (Cisco IEC 4600) integrated with other devices.
This section provides information about the topology of Remote Expert Solution. During Cisco Collaboration Systems testing, various components are installed and tested, including Unified CM, Remote Expert Manager, Cisco IEC, 500-32, EX60 and EX90, MediaSense, and CUBE.
