Transcript

  • 1. Northern Grid Proposal Videoconferencing in Schools
  • 2. Requirement
    • Multipoint Conferencing
    • Intra-Northern Grid Conferencing
    • Inter-RBC Conferencing
    • External IP Conferencing
    • UKERNA Gateway Conferencing
  • 3. Solution Manufacturers
    • Polycom – Service Providers choice for MCU solutions in an ISDN environment.
    • Cisco – OEM Radvision products
    • Radvision – Recognised as strongest IP solution provider.
    • H.323 stack designed by Radvision and used by Polycom, Tandberg, Sony, Cisco, Aethra and many more. Radvision Gatekeepers offer end to end network control
  • 4.
    • Where to site solution?
    • Middlesbrough PoP
    • Firewall DMZ
    • Redundancy of PoP
    • No PoP, No Network, No Videoconferences
  • 5. Solution Components
    • Gatekeeper/Alternate Gatekeeper
    • Multipoint Control Unit (MCU)
    • Multimedia Video Processors
    • Video Communication Scheduler
    • Data Collaboration Server
    • Network Management Application
    • Servers for Gatekeepers & Applications
    • Distributed Architecture
  • 6. The Core Gatekeeper
    • Radvision ECS100 Pro with Firewall Traversal
    • 500 Registrations
    • 100 Concurrent Inter LEA Calls
    • Hierarchy with UKERNA
    • Neighbours with LEA Gatekeepers
    • Neighbours with other RBC Gatekeepers
    • Routes call traffic through network
    • Requires server
    • H.323 Proxy built in
  • 7. The Alternate Gatekeeper
    • ECS100 Pro Alternate
    • Communicates with Core Gatekeeper every 3 seconds
    • Assumes Core Gatekeeper function and identity if core Gatekeeper fails
    • Requires server
  • 8. Gatekeeper Architecture
  • 9.
    • If LEA has Gatekeeper then all Intra-LEA traffic stays within LEA
    • All Inter-LEA and Inter-RBC traffic is routed through the Northern Grid Core Gatekeeper
    • Easynet provide routing for Videoconferences to UKERNA on Interconnect and off-net through Internet.
  • 10. The MCU
    • 72 Port MCU @ 768kbps
    Distributed over 3 1U Chassis each with power supply and 24 port MCU 3 MCU’s but still just 1 service A multipoint service can continue even in the unthinkable event that 2 systems fail Web interface for remote management Bandwidth Load Balancing
  • 11. MVP
    • Multimedia Video Processor on each MCU
    Supports 3 or 4 Continuous Presence conferences on each MCU Enhanced trans-coding Bandwidth Video Algorithm Frame Rate Resolution Any Layout Single Call
  • 12. T.120 Data Sharing
    • Application Sharing
    30 MCU Ports collaborating simultaneously Inclusion:- Access with NetMeeting over Internet Web Interface Uses ECS Server
  • 13. Video Conference Scheduler
    • Schedules Point-to-Point and Multipoint Calls
    Support for up to 90 endpoints Multi Gatekeeper environment Same server as ECS Gatekeeper Web Interface for Remote Management
  • 14. iView Network Manager
    • Network Management Tool
    Supports 20 elements Total Core Solution incorporates 10 elements 3 x MCU, 3 x MVP, 2 X Gatekeeper,1 x DCS 1 x VCS Further 9 LEA Gatekeepers Additional elements can be added if required
