Cisco TelePresence

Interoperability Database

Warning - In preview mode

We endeavor to make our Cisco TelePresence products interoperable with all relevant standards-based equipment. Although it is not possible to test all scenarios, the testing on which this data is based covers most common functions of the listed endpoints and infrastructure.

The following pages describe the software releases that were tested for interoperability with Cisco TelePresence products. The results are grouped by product range. It is not possible to guarantee that all the models listed in the Product(s) column have been tested with the specified software release, although to the best of our knowledge we believe that all such models are interoperable with the associated software release. The absence of a device or release does not imply a lack of interoperability.

Cisco Meeting Server software version 2.3

Show data for version: 2.32.22.12.0


Interoperability testing often requires interworking from one signaling/call control protocol to another. The following table lists phrases that are used to briefly describe the call paths that were tested for each interoperability scenario. The explicit call paths in the table place the endpoint first and the Cisco Meeting Server last as a general convention.

Note: We recommend using the most up-to-date software on all devices.

Call Path Phrase

Explicit call path description

SIP

Endpoint < SIP > Cisco Meeting Server

Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) to Cisco Expressway

Endpoint < SIP > Cisco Unified CM < SIP > Cisco Expressway < SIP > Cisco Meeting Server

TIP

Cisco Infrastructure Platforms

Product(s) Software releaseComments
Cisco Expressway X8.9 or later

Supported for traversal of SIP traffic at the edge of the network, to and from the Cisco Meeting Server. Allows collaboration using Cisco Meeting spaces between on-premise Cisco Meeting App or SIP endpoint users, and users external to the network who are using standards-based SIP endpoints, Microsoft Skype for Business or Microsoft Office 365. Cisco Expressway does not currently support traversal for external Cisco Meeting App users. Cisco Expressway X8.9 is previewing a web proxy to enable off-premise users to join meetings held in spaces, using a web browser supporting WebRTC.

Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) 11.5(SU1) or later

CMS 2.3 only works with CUCM 11.5(SU1) or later for ad hoc call escalation. Version 10.5(SU1) is not supported.

Scheduled, rendezvous and point to point calls on CUCM can be escalated to a conference on the Meeting Server. See the Cisco Meeting Server Deployments with Call Control guide for configuration details.

Cisco Software Based Apps

Product(s) Software releaseComments
Cisco Jabber 11.9

Supported for Jabber on Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, Android and Android Wearable.

Cisco Meeting App 1.10.12

Available on Windows, macOS and WebRTC app for Google Chrome web browsers.

 

Cisco Spark N/A

Use latest version Spark. Available on mobile (IOS or android), desktop (Mac or Windows) and a Web version which works on any browser. Refer to https://www.ciscospark.com/downloads.html for system requirements.

Spark registered endpoints (both hardware and software endpoints) support making and receiving SIP video calls (i.e. audio, video and BFCP content sharing) via the Spark cloud. Therefore, Spark registered endpoints support connecting to Cisco Meeting Server today as a SIP endpoint. Spark endpoints are intended to be used with Spark conferencing and hence the user experience will be different between a Spark conference and one hosted on a Cisco Meeting Server. Additional conference functionality such as ActiveControl (the ability to see roster lists, change local layouts from the touch panel) and white boarding are not currently supported between Spark endpoints and Cisco Meeting Server.

Skype N/A

The Meeting Server supports audio, Instant Messaging and presence from/to Skype users. Note that Skype integration happens through Lync and if you are able to connect between Skype and Lync, and Lync to the Meeting Server, then Skype to the Meeting Server should work. Therefore, ensure that you have Skype integrated with Lync infrastructure for calls from Skype to go to the Meeting Server through the Lync Edge server.

Skype for Business on iOS 6.12.0.219 and later

 

Currently audio and video calls are supported with the following known issues for iOS versions 10.2.1 (and later):  

  1. Chat messages are not sent to Mobile Skype for business client from Cisco Meeting Server.
  2. Multiple entries appear for the same audio/video/chat interaction in the Skype for business client on mobiles. For example, a single chat exchange during an audio/video call will appear as two entries in the history.
  3. Content not received by Mobile Skype for business client from Cisco Meeting Server.  This is consistent with current Microsoft limitations for content between Mobile Skype for business client and Desktop Skype for business client.

Cisco will endeavor to provide best efforts to address any interop issues found in basic audio and video exchange where possible within the limitations of the Cisco Meeting Server. However, customers are advised to conduct tests in their own environment.

Skype for Business on Mac 2015, 2016

Supported in 3 modes (gateway, direct to spaces and dual home).

Note: The control functionality on clients using Office 365 dual home experience with OBTP scheduling does not work conference wide. For more information, see Release Notes for Cisco Meeting Server.
