Conferencing Center CD

Conferencing Center CD

Conferencing Center CD

(OP)
Our distributor has indicated that Conferencing Center need only a Voicemail Pro license to function.

Does anyone know if the Conferencing Center software can be found on Avaya's support site?  

Easy enough to order of course - just dealing with a time crunch and some continued struggles with getting correct media from VodaOne.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

(OP)
I stand corrected.  Unfortunately, my sources were incorrect as I have confirmed Conferencing Center as a separate "licensed" product.  Sometimes I don't know who's the teacher and who's the student as I work with these distributors in determining pricing on new features and/or products.  Very frustrating indeed.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

You're second sources might be wrong.  I downloaded the Conferencing CD from support.avaya.com (so, yes its there) and loaded it on our VMPro server.  The web conferencing works great.  All without a license.  I'd like some clarification on all this because, from what I can tell, it works fine.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

Officially you require a license for Conference Server, however it may work without it you are finding it does, shhh keep it to yourself!!. No doubt this will be resolved by AVAYA very shortly.

I will try it without and let you know.

Thanks Kris for the heads-up on the CD download.  Last I had checked, it wasn't available.

Inspired by your post, I proceeded with the install/config.

Here's what I'm seeing:

1) Conferencing Center Scheduler (CCS) and Client (CCC) are both accessible.
2) Scheduling via CCS seems fine however, once a conference goes into an active state, it is unavailable via the link ""In-Progress Conferences".
3) Access to the conference via CCC is hit & miss.  Sometimes it will accept the login, other times it will not.  
4) When calling into VMPro to enter the conference, the conference is unavailable.

On the surface, it does appear to install and work but once I dig into the program, I see issues abound.

Welcoming anyone else's comments as to their own experience with setting up Conferencing Center.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

I was able to monitor resources and see active and pending conferences.  The only issue I had was the power conf module in VM Pro.  I too heard a message saying the conference is not scheduled.  Very strange.  I figured I had something screwed up in my config.

If there were a step-by-step config guide that we could follow (for all parts, not just VM Pro), that would help tremendously.  Unfortunately I can find no such thing.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

Why can't I find Conference Center?  Anyone got a link to it?

RE: Conferencing Center CD

(OP)
One other to add to my list.  Although I created users in CC with ID's which matched their IP Office accounts (per the instructions), the CCS and CCC buttons which should appear in user's Phone Manager application are not showing up.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

The Conf'Center button in Phone Manager aren't user specific. They should appear for all Phone Manager users as soon as you have set the location of the Conf'Center server in the IP Office configuration.

Basically they just shell out the appropriate URL to a browser windows at which point the user has to enter their Conference Center Scheduler user/pass or conf id/pass if they have one.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

I'm not surprised you're running into all kinds of issues trying to run CC without the correct licence (and you are definately supposed to a need a licence, your first source was getting confused with basic conference bridge ability in VMPro) - I'm surprised it works at all.

Kind of like complaining that the audio is fine on that scrambled pay TV channel but you can't see the picture properly, ain't it?  :)

LOL.  I tend to agree with you Morrack.

To all Business Partners out there interested in giving the product a go - CatalystTelecom is offering VMPro 4-Port license free with purchase of Conferencing Center ($3,590 savings).  Information can be found at ttp://www.catalysttelecom.com/showpromotion_details.asp?ID=170

Hopefully Westcon and others will follow suit; otherwise, we'll have to wait for demo pricing in order to put the product through its paces I think.

RE: Conferencing Center CD

Hey - new information.  I just got a copy of the demo's for Power Conferencing.  It shows how to schedule via their web interface, how the web conference application works and many of the features.  I don't have a place to upload it but if anyone want's a copy (.zip file) I'd be happy to email it to them. Let me know & post your email.
