Meeting Place 8- Ports default behavior

Hi,

In MP8 when I schedule a meeting with 5 audio ports, how can I restrict this meeting to use only 5 ports and not more than that, considering some ports are not reserved in any meeting.

I also wish to know the default behavior of ports in MP8. Is it available on docwiki ?

Thanks

Hello

The MP8 system uses Audio Floater ports and Overbook ports to allocate extra/unexpected users in meetings.


If you set these values to 0, you will configure the system to not allow extra users in the meeting once you have reached the max. number of ports allocated for that meeting.

Audio floater ports

Applies to scheduled meeting resource allocation  only. Number of voice ports that  are reserved as floater ports. You use floater ports for any scheduled  meeting to  accommodate unanticipated additional participants. Configuring voice  floater  ports reduces the number of ports that are available for scheduling  meetings.

Voice floater ports are also used by meeting recordings. See Audio  and Video  Recording Resources and Port Usage.

Restrictions:

  • This number cannot  exceed the value of the Audio  licensed ports field.
  • Changing the  licenses might affect the upper and lower limits for this  parameter.

For recommendations for determining the number of floater ports, see the   Planning Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/
products/sw/ps5664/ps5669/products_implementation_design_guides_list.html.

Default: 2

Audio overbook ports

Applies to scheduled meeting resource allocation  only. Number of voice ports to  allow for scheduled meetings that exceed the number of available voice  ports on  the system. Configuring voice overbook ports increases the risk of users  being  unable to attend scheduled meetings.

If you use this feature, you assume that users who are scheduled to  attend meetings  do not always attend, leaving their reserved voice ports unused. Once  all voice  ports are in use, other users who try to attend a voice meeting will not  be able to  get through.

Restrictions:

  • This number cannot  exceed twice the value of the Audio  licensed ports field.
  • Changing the  licenses might affect the upper and lower limits for this  parameter.

For recommendations for determining the number of overbook ports, see  the  Planning Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/
products/sw/ps5664/ps5669/products_implementation_design_guides_list.html.

Default: 0
