5 Network Transparency to Videoconferencing Users Same level of complexity as the mobile networkTransparency gained by video management
6 What is Video Management? Supporting infrastructure vital to the success of video conferencingIncludes the following functionalityNetwork and Device Monitoring and ManagementCentralized Device Management and ConfigurationDevice MonitoringCall Detail RecordsConference SchedulingConference ManagementPolycom includes a gatekeeper as part of video managementWorld’s best video H.323 gatekeeper
7 Why is Video Management important? Increase videoconferencing usage via user satisfactionEnd user satisfaction fulfilled by:Call reliability and availabilityContinuous uptimeSimplified usage modelAdministrator satisfaction fulfilled by:Control video transactional costsEase of deploymentEase of management
8 ReadiManager SE200… a powerful, integrated management solution for conferencing networks ‘All-In-One’ platform –integrated management, scheduling, and GK applicationsPre-configured appliance –requires minimal installation and set-up timeReduced operational support costs –intelligent network and device monitoringProvides centralized control –saves time, resources and costsEasy to learn application –due to role-based design of interface“simplified deployment”“improvednetwork health”

11 ReadiManager SE200 - Application Details (cont’d) Device ManagementAutomatic Software Updates to networked video devices – individually or by groups, immediately or at scheduled timesProvisioning for the creation and transfer of device profiles / settings to Polycom endpointsReal-time Monitoring and Remote Management insures conferencing network integrityGatekeeperFirewall Traversal Support allows video/voice to pass freely through firewalls without compromising securityPolicy Management controls bandwidth utilization, enforces network policies, and manages resource accessRTP Statistics provide packet loss, jitter and latency-over-time stats to help analyze the quality of a video call over the network
12 ReadiManager SE200 Platform Secure, appliance-based platformLocked-down, embedded XP operating systemWrite-protected Compact FlashNo Windows GUIO/S patches managed as part of maintenance releasesNo IIS services (uses Apache Tomcat web server)Excellent disaster recovery capabilitiesAutomated daily back-up of local databaseDatabase restore & ‘Factory Default’ reset optionsRegistrations and calls-in-progress not affected by a system restart
13 SE200 – Designed with a Role-based Approach Designed to provide the most efficient interface for the different roles in an organization3 views designed around videoconferencing rolesEnd user – Just wants videoconferencing to work for them, needs address book and simplified dialingOperator - Wants number of support calls reduced, needs to schedule and monitor conferenceAdministrator – Configuration and reporting
14 SE200 ViewsAdministratorOperatorScheduler (i.e., My Conferences View)
15 Administrator Functions Directory Setup: users, devices, roles & policy groupsDial-Plan Setup: sites, services, regions, least cost routing, dialing rules, etc.Conferencing Setup: scheduling settings, conference templatesSystem Setup: licensing, system settings, database, Active Directory integration, GK settings, etc.
22 Scheduler Functions (My Conferences View) A user-specific view to create, edit, and delete their own scheduled conferences (conferences scheduled by other user do not show in this view)On Demand Call Creation
23 Conference Scheduling with Outlook Schedule participants and rooms in the normal Outlook fashionIf audio or video is desired, select the ‘Conference Resources’ tab
24 Web-based Conference Scheduling (cont’d) Users are provided a view of all their scheduled conferencesOperators have a full view of all scheduled conferences
25 On Demand Call Creation Easing Point to Point CallingThrough Address BookThrough E164 dialing instead of IP addressesEasing Multipoint CallingUsing Meeting Room Numbers for Multipoint callsConference on Demand from endpoint interface
