I've been reviewing some information on the telepresence content server and figured someone here might know the answer. I am reading some conflicting information.
My goal is to setup a recording solution and so far TCS in combination with REV and a DME is proposed but if the TCS can do everything by itself and then offload the recordings to a NAS, then I wouldn't need the rest of the solution. Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you sir, that is exactly what I needed to know. I thought the docs were a bit off and you confirmed that part. As far as the vBrick REV and DME, the only purpose I saw of those two pieces are that one is a portal to watch live and recorded videos and store them on the DME.
hello Patrick Sparkman
i want to ask can TCS 7 works without cucm or vcs ?
whats is license required for this scenario and ova template specs ?
can i deploy TCS 7 on a 3rd party server like hp or dell?
You can run the TCS as a standalone server, however there will be limitations such as only being able to use the default recording alias and template, instead of being able to use multiple aliases and templates if it were registered to a call control server such as CUCM or VCS. If you do a search of the forums for "tcs standalone", you'll come accross several threads discussing this type of deployment.
The TCS comes with all the required licenses to function, nothing extra is needed unless you plan on running it in a cluster or add more recording ports.
Starting with S6.2 you can run the TCS on spec based third-party servers as long as they meet the requirements. Refer to the TCS S7.0 Release Notes, and TCS Virtulization DocWiki for more information on the requirements.
Yes it is possible to connect to the TCS from an endpoint that is Multisite enabled, it is the same process as a point-to-point call where you call the TCS directly from the endpoint, the only difference would be the Multisite endpoint would have several participants connected to it including the TCS.
