POLYCOM PROPRIETARY Polycom ® Readi Manager ™ SE200 Are you ready for video management? Gladys Alegre, Product Manager
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 2 Videoconferencing Is it only about the endpoint? Endpoint Specific features Sound Video quality Delivery of content What’s behind the device?
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 3 Mobile Cell Phones Camera capability Games Instant messaging 3 way calling Address Book Connectivity Continuous uptime What do you consider when you purchase your cell phone?
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 4 Network Transparency to the Mobile User Complex network behind the cell phone providing: Addressability Continuous uptime Service features –Games –3 way calling – –IM
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 5 Network Transparency to Videoconferencing Users Same level of complexity as the mobile network Transparency gained by video management
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 6 What is Video Management? Supporting infrastructure vital to the success of video conferencing Includes the following functionality Network and Device Monitoring and Management –Centralized Device Management and Configuration –Device Monitoring –Call Detail Records Conference Scheduling Conference Management Polycom includes a gatekeeper as part of video management World’s best video H.323 gatekeeper
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 7 Why is Video Management important? Increase videoconferencing usage via user satisfaction End user satisfaction fulfilled by: Call reliability and availability Continuous uptime Simplified usage model Administrator satisfaction fulfilled by: Control video transactional costs Ease of deployment Ease of management
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 8 ReadiManager SE200… a powerful, integrated management solution for conferencing networks “improved network health” “simplified deployment” ‘All-In-One’ platform – integrated management, scheduling, and GK applications Pre-configured appliance – requires minimal installation and set-up time Reduced operational support costs – intelligent network and device monitoring Provides centralized control – saves time, resources and costs Easy to learn application – due to role-based design of interface
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 9 Intro to ReadiManager™ SE200 Appliance-based video conferencing scheduling and management solution Device and System Management Web-based and Outlook Scheduling Conference Management Gatekeeper
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 10 ReadiManager SE200 - Application Details Core Features Integrated Active Directory LDAP Integration for automated user maintenance and authentication Unique user-centric Global Directory Service Integrated CDR Reporting captures resource utilization and facilitates charge-back billing Scheduling & Conference Management Create & manage scheduled conferences - point-to-point and multipoint - using web-based interface or Outlook Evaluates and schedules bandwidth availability Add / drop participants, extend conferences, mute conferences, etc.
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 11 ReadiManager SE200 - Application Details (cont’d) Device Management Automatic Software Updates to networked video devices – individually or by groups, immediately or at scheduled times Provisioning for the creation and transfer of device profiles / settings to Polycom endpoints Real-time Monitoring and Remote Management insures conferencing network integrity Gatekeeper Firewall Traversal Support allows video/voice to pass freely through firewalls without compromising security Policy Management controls bandwidth utilization, enforces network policies, and manages resource access RTP Statistics provide packet loss, jitter and latency-over-time stats to help analyze the quality of a video call over the network
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 12 Secure, appliance-based platform Locked-down, embedded XP operating system Write-protected Compact Flash No Windows GUI O/S patches managed as part of maintenance releases No IIS services (uses Apache Tomcat web server) Excellent disaster recovery capabilities Automated daily back-up of local database Database restore & ‘Factory Default’ reset options Registrations and calls-in-progress not affected by a system restart ReadiManager SE200 Platform
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 13 SE200 – Designed with a Role-based Approach Designed to provide the most efficient interface for the different roles in an organization 3 views designed around videoconferencing roles End user – Just wants videoconferencing to work for them, needs address book and simplified dialing Operator - Wants number of support calls reduced, needs to schedule and monitor conference Administrator – Configuration and reporting
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 15 Administrator Functions Directory Setup: users, devices, roles & policy groups Dial-Plan Setup: sites, services, regions, least cost routing, dialing rules, etc. Conferencing Setup: scheduling settings, conference templates System Setup: licensing, system settings, database, Active Directory integration, GK settings, etc.
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 16 Operator Functions Monitoring: device & conference monitoring Scheduling: conference scheduling & management Reports: IP and ISDN call detail records Troubleshooting: gatekeeper diagnostics
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 17 Operators can quickly & easily schedule one-time or recurring audio & video conferences Web-based Conference Scheduling
POLYCOM PROPRIETARY 18 Conference Monitoring Displays ALL active conferences, including any ad-hoc or on- demand conferences… whether they’re PtP or multipoint
