MXP Multiway vs. Multiside

Hi everyone,

we had migrated some new (old) Videoendpoints.

Actually we have trouble with an 6000MXP (F9.0.2  PAL). The problem is we have an multisidfe option installed and so the Endpoint

is not using the MCU. How can we convince these endpoint to use the MCU?

Tnaks a lot!

MXP with recent software must select either Multisite (use embedded MCU feature) or Multiway (conference escalation using external MCU bridge).

As videoconftech mention, you need to configure which conference method to be use on Endpoint (can’t activate both on same time).

Through web GUI: Endpoint Configuration-->General-->Multi Point Call Options-->Multi Point

choices are Off, Multisite or Multiway - select Multisite.

Through CLI:

xConfiguration Multipoint Mode:

set to

xConfiguration Multipoint Mode: Multisite

Also remember to set "Allow Incoming Calls when in Call" permission to "On" if you want to allow other sites to dial in for mutisite conferences.

Hi,

we use tms SmartScheduler. 

We have configured Multiway at the Endpoint, tms sees multiside optionkeys and won't use the MCU when Number of Partner is less than 5.

Is there a Way to prefer multiway all all the time.

kind regards 

Martin

When you say "we use TMS smart scheduler", do you mean to say that these are scheduled conferences where you wish to use the MCU?

If so, in TMS go to:

Administrative Tools > Conference Settings > Advanced > External MCU Usage in Routing: > "Always, except point-to-point"
