Cisco Meeting Server 2.9: Single Server Simplified Lab v1

Date
July 2020

Overview

The Cisco Meeting Server (Meeting Server) brings video, audio, and web communication together to meet the collaboration needs of the contemporary workplace. The Meeting Server helps ensure everyone gets a consistent, familiar meeting experience whether they’re joining a meeting using Cisco or third-party video endpoints, a Cisco Jabber® client, a web client-compatible browser, or Skype for Business. Any number of people can join a meeting up to the limit of the available underlying hardware. In addition, the Meeting Server optimizes bandwidth usage in order to reduce cost. In short, the Meeting Server provides an optimal user experience that is simple, intuitive, and easy.

The Meeting Server is also optimized for deployment with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Expressway, Cisco TelePresence® Video Communication Server (VCS) for call control, Cisco Expressway for firewall traversal, and Cisco TelePresence Management Suite for scheduling (third-party on-premises infrastructure is also supported). It scales easily for small or large deployments, allowing capacity to be added incrementally as needed. The all-in-one, user-based licensing model allows you to buy the services you need today and add more licenses as your organization grows. The combination of the Meeting Server and its licensing model provide you with the flexibility to meet the changing needs of your organization.
