Q: How does Meeting Connector benefit you?
A. The benefits are twofold:
- Only one connection from Meeting Connector traverses the WAN; the rest of the traffic remains on your local LAN network.
- As no video/voice/data traffic passes through the WAN/public internet when a local LAN meeting is held, the privacy of the discussion is preserved.
Q. What is the optimal number of Meeting Connectors?
A. Meeting Connector Controllers can support up to 200 concurrent users (devices or rooms) and come with Zone Controllers and Multi-Media Routers. As a result, if you would like to add more capacity, you would install additional Multi-Media Routers so as to accommodate an additional 200 simultaneous participants.
Q. Does Meeting Connectors allow for the distribution of Meeting Connectors geographically?
A. It is true. There are several methods you can use for deploying Meeting Connector Controllers locally and setting them up to deploy Multi-Media Routers (MMRs) in different geographical locations; we recommend setting up to four geographical locations. Zone Controllers will be in charge of managing the distributed MMRs from a central location.
Q. What makes users aware that Meeting Connector is available?
A. If you specify the host as on-premises, the meeting will be started using the Meeting Connector. Meeting clients will automatically join meetings on the nearest Meeting Connector as soon as they start, while attendees will find the Meeting Connector of their choice when the meeting begins.
Q. Does Meeting Connector need to be upgraded?
A. The Meeting Connector release notes can be found here. Using the admin web interface on the Meeting Connector, select Check Updates, then click Install Update.
