Instructions for using Cisco Jabber to connect to Video-Conferencing sessions can be viewed below.
Dual Stream means the installation has the capacity to transmit more than one feed to remote sites. For example the video feed and a PowerPoint presentation.
IP This provides the capacity for conferences to occur utilising the network infrastructure and therefore reducing the costs involved. It also provides a greater flexibility in locations for conferences as network ports are located all over the campus networks. For example 220.127.116.11
ISDN connections run via the telephone cables. This is available at the more permanent sites and is used as a ‘backup’ in the event of a network failure. For example firstname.lastname@example.org
MCU Multipoint Conferencing Unit allows multiple video conference, phone and ISDN participants to conference together.
