HDX 7000 + VBP

Hi,

 

I just buy two Polycom HDX 7000 and a VBP 4555 for my company :)

 

I have a Juniper firewall, how should I do to connect them ?

Must I set a public IP (with NAT) and a private IP on the VPB and put it on a DMZ ?

 

Should I put the two HDX 7000 on the DMZ too ? or let them on the LAN ?

 

Sorry for my bad english :(

 

I hope you will understand what i mean and answer :)

 

Bye

Re: HDX 7000 + VBP

Polycom's recommended approach is to deploy the VBP (assume this is the "E" model) in parallel to your firewall.

 

As a simple suggestion, configure the wan interface on the VBP to connect to the internet, and  the lan interface to connect to your internal network. This allows the video traffic to traverse the VBP and negates the need to apply special configuration on your existing firewall.

 

Deploy your hdx units on your internal lan, configure your VBP to act as an "embedded gatekeeper" and configure your hdx units to register to the vbp as the h323 gatekeeper.which these hdx units will register to.  Any inbound callers from the internet will call into the VBP which in turn will direct the call to the appropriate endpoint based on its alias.

 

Here's a guide that can help you.

 

Hope that helps.
