Are you saying in a Cisco environment that each endpoint that participates in a endpoint hosted multipoint call needs a license?
In a Polycom environment only the host of the multipoint conference needs to have the MP license, any other standards based EP can dial into, or be dialed into the conference from, the EP hosting the MP call.
The GS 500 can host a total of 6 EPs (itself +5) and the GS 700 can host 8 (itself +7). In addition to audio and video, any of the EPs can send H.239 content and all EPs will receive it.
Just in case:
EP = endpoint
MP = Multipoint
GS = Group Series (RealPresence Group Series)
Thanks for your answers.
A GS500 can make a group video call against 3 Endpoints GS300 simultaneously?
This doubt arises me because the SG300 does not support multipoint.
GS500 uses the star schema to organize the multipoint call. As GS300 is connected only to GS500 it treats this call as a p2p one.
Hope this could eliminate the doubt.
