The PA for Webex Hybrid Services applies the bandwidth management strategy of the Preferred Architecture for Cisco Collaboration 12.0 Enterprise On-Premises Deployments to the Webex Teams endpoints, clients, and infrastructure components. [1] As part of implementing the PA for Webex Hybrid Services, there are a number of products and integrations covered in the latest version of the Preferred Architecture for Cisco Collaboration Enterprise On-Premises Deployments that overlap with, and thus are not part of, the PA for Webex Hybrid Services. [1] The Preferred Architecture (PA) for Webex Hybrid Services is a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) in the Preferred Architectures umbrella that was created as a supplement to the PA for Cisco Collaboration Enterprise on-premises deployments. [1] Therefore we expect you to follow and implement the latest version of the Preferred Architecture for Cisco Collaboration Enterprise On-Premises Deployments, available at https://www.cisco.com/go/pa, prior to deploying the PA for Webex Hybrid Services. [1]

The Preferred Architecture (PA) for Cisco Webex Hybrid Services provides end-to-end collaboration targeted for deployments where a Cisco Collaboration solution based on Cisco Unified Communications Manager has been deployed. [1]

The Preferred Architecture for Cisco Webex Hybrid Services incorporates a holistic approach to bandwidth management that includes an end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) architecture with video rate adaptation and resiliency mechanisms to provide the best possible user experience for deploying pervasive video over managed and unmanaged networks. [1]

POSSIBLY USEFUL

With Webex Teams, you can make calls to any other Webex Teams user in any company via SIP dialing, as well as calls to any endpoint or room device deployed in your Cisco Enterprise on-premises solution. [1] You can make and receive calls from a phone connected to the Webex Teams service in the office or from the Webex Teams application on your mobile phone or desktop. When integrated with Webex Hybrid Services, Webex Teams applications also support enterprise dialing habits such as numerical dialing to on-premises endpoints and the PSTN. (PSTN connectivity is provided through Cisco Unified Communications Manager deployed on the enterprise premises.) [1] When the call reaches Cisco Unified CM, Unified CM changes the calling ID to match the enterprise calling ID. Thus, when the call is delivered to the destination, the called user does not know if the call is coming from Webex Teams or from an internal endpoint. [1] Call Service Connect not only enables ringing on Webex Teams and Cisco Unified CM, but also allows Webex Teams users to place calls using enterprise dialing habits. [1]

Cisco Directory Connectors push directory data and communicate over the Internet through the secure enterprise boundary and corporate firewall with the cloud identity service within Webex. [1] Cisco Calendar Connector pushes calendar data and communicates over the Internet through the secure enterprise boundary and corporate firewall with the calendar service within Webex. [1]

Because of the adaptable nature of Cisco endpoints and their support for IP networks, this architecture enables an organization to use its current data network and the Internet to support both voice and video calls. [1] If an instance of an application or service fails, Cisco on-premises and cloud-based services (such as endpoint registration, call processing, messaging, and many others) continue to operate on the remaining instance(s) of the application or service. [1] Invite others to join meetings from their desk, a branch office, their homes, or the road with Webex Teams or on their Cisco on-premises endpoint or room device. [1] In the PA for Webex Hybrid Services, both Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) on-premises call control and Cisco Webex provide endpoint registration and collaboration services. [1] The PA for Webex Hybrid Services includes Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM), Cisco Expressway-C and Expressway-E, and the Expressway-C Connector Host for the Hybrid Call Service solution ( Figure 15 ). [1]

When a user of Webex is enabled for Call Service Aware, the Call Connector uses AXL connectivity to find devices associated to that user on Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM), and then it sends this information to Webex. [1] Call Service Connect allows integration between Webex Teams and Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM). [1] Figure 18 shows the global reachability on both the Webex Teams application and the Cisco Unified CM device when a user is provisioned for Call Service Connect. [1] In this way, if a Cisco Unified CM user is not entitled to call specific destinations, this limitation is also extended to the Webex Teams application. [1] For every call received on the Webex Teams application, the call is extended to Cisco Unified CM through Expressway-E and Expressway-C. [1] If Cisco Unified CM is not in mixed mode and uses non-encrypted RTP media traffic to send the call to Expressway-C, then Expressway-C can terminate the RTP connection from the Unified CM endpoint and open another call leg using SRTP to Webex. [1]

HTTPS is used for communications between Cisco Calendar Connector on the Expressway-C Connector Host and Webex. [1] As shown in Figure 7, the Cisco Calendar Connector service running on the Expressway-C Connector Host synchronizes with Microsoft Exchange using Exchange Web Services (EWS) over the on-premises network. [1]

Cisco BroadCloud Calling is a new cloud calling offer targeting Service Providers – delivering a proven enterprise-class cloud PBX. The solution is based on the BroadCloud calling platform coupled with key Cisco commercial and administrative tools to provide a best-in-class fully featured cloud calling solution. [2] It can be private-labelled by the Cisco BroadCloud Calling Service Providers using their own preferred brands. [2]

Cisco has now converged those two collaboration products into a single platform that is simpler to use and provides a more uniform and enjoyable user experience than the two separate platforms, with new and enhanced features as well. [1] Cisco has a range of Collaboration Endpoints with various features and functionality that an organization can also use to address its business needs. [1]

The Cisco Expressway-C Connector Host is a standard Cisco Expressway-C server deployed within the customer’s organization to provide an integration point between the on-premises and cloud collaboration services. [1] New York, New York, February. 1st, 2018 – Collaboration Squared, a global cloud collaboration and conferencing service provider, today announced the launch of the next generation of their award-winning Ubiety cloud bridging service powered by Cisco Meeting Server technology.

We are involved in advising, selling and integrating all Crestron products and solutions, including XiO for enterprise management in the Cloud and the Crestron Flex series, powerful UC that integrates with Microsoft Teams and includes sensors, analytics and automation. [8] Webex Hybrid Calendar Service enables a tight integration between the user’s enterprise Microsoft Exchange calendar, Microsoft Outlook invitations, and Webex Teams Messaging. [1]

When @meet is added to the location field of an Outlook calendar invitation, Calendar Connector and the cloud calendar service create a Webex Teams meeting and a new Webex Teams collaboration space with a name that matches the invitation subject. [1] Administrators may configure user accounts, enable specific features, and provision users for collaboration services within the Webex Teams organization. [1]

AVer recognizes that cloud video conferencing services, like those offered by partners such as Zoom, are delivering collaboration to a much wider range of meeting spaces far beyond the boardroom. [5] “Through our collaboration with Phoenix Audio Technologies, we hope to bring next generation video conferencing experience into meeting rooms and ensure seamless integrated experience for our customers”. [5] “We built the new BlueJeans experience by empathizing deeply with our users and placing the focus of meetings where it belongs — on the people and ideas that propel business, collaboration and productivity,” said Mark Strassman, Chief Product Officer, BlueJeans. [5] Bandwidth management is about providing the best possible user experience end-to-end for all media capable endpoints, clients, and applications in the collaboration solution. [1] Prioritizing voice from all types of collaboration media ensures that, even during times of extreme congestion when video is experiencing packet loss and adjusting to that loss, the audio streams are not experiencing packet loss and are allowing the users to have an uninterrupted audio experience. [1] The Tracker is designed to enhance video conferencing experiences in collaboration spaces by allowing for automatic speaker tracking with the help of a PTZ camera and the direction-finding technology of the Phoenix Audio Condor beam forming microphone array. [5] AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS–(Marketwired – February 06, 2018) – As the doors open at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018 in Amsterdam, Lifesize, a global innovator of video conferencing technology, has unveiled new innovations to help customers maximize their collaboration investment and work more efficiently and productively in the ways in which they actually work. [5]

Centralized on-premises and cloud-based services also simplify management and administration of an organization’s collaboration deployment. [1]

Cisco offers technical support services covering the areas of problem resolution, customer success and adoption, and designated support management in three service tiers: Basic, Enhanced, and Premium. [2] You may access the Cisco software and cloud services by up to 120% of the Knowledge Workers identified in your EUIF (” Growth Allowance “) without incurring additional fees. [2]

The Cisco Spark application that has been incorporated into Webex is called Webex Teams. [1] The Call Connector on Cisco Expressway-C notifies Webex when two Webex Teams users are engaged in the same call with their on-premises devices, so that their respective Webex Teams applications can offer the option to start desktop sharing. [1] As shown in Figure 5, Cisco Directory Connectors synchronize with Microsoft Active Directory using Microsoft application programming interfaces (APIs) over the on-premises network. [1] Cisco Calendar Connector also integrates with Webex Personal Rooms for @webex functionality. [1] Because this is an outbound connection from the Cisco Calendar Connector to the Internet, it does not require any inbound ports to be opened on the internal or external firewall. [1]

The Cisco Calling App is the soft client application (for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android) that provides the calling experience for the Cisco BroadCloud Calling. [2] Cisco has used its extensive experience gained from securing the world’s largest networks. [1] Licenses/Certifications: Cisco Certified Network Professional or equivalent certification/experience. [9]

Add-on licenses for common-area phone and desktop video units, as well as Cisco TelePresence Room licenses, are available for customers who have common-area endpoints not associated with Knowledge Workers. [2] Because Cisco endpoints range from low-cost, single-line phones and soft clients to presentation, white board, and multi-screen Cisco TelePresence endpoints, an organization can deploy the right variety of endpoints to meet users’ needs ( Figure 3 ). [1]

With Cisco Unity Express, you can easily and conveniently manage your voice messages and greetings through your web browser using a web Inbox, traditional intuitive telephone prompts, an easy-to-use visual voicemail interface (the Cisco Unity Express VoiceView Express application), email access to messages, and a straightforward GUI that allows simple administration and management. [2] Cisco Unity Express offers industry-leading integrated messaging, voicemail, fax, automated attendant, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), time-card management, and a rich set of other messaging features on the Cisco ISR platform. [2]

Cisco Capital makes it easier to get the right technology to achieve your objectives, enable business transformation and help you stay competitive. [2] Any time Cisco Expressway performs RTP-to-SRTP conversion, it engages a back-to-back user agent (B2BUA). [1] Call Service Connect enables ringing on both Webex Teams and Cisco Unified CM devices associated with the same user. [1] Webex Teams users correlate to Cisco Unified CM end users by means of email addresses. [1] Cisco Unified CM dialing habits (including PSTN access codes) are preserved for Webex Teams users. [1]

For all line appearances monitored by the Call Connector, Cisco Unified CM sends notifications to the Call Connector, which then relays this information to Webex. [1] Cisco Unified CM connects to Expressway-C Call Connector using CTI-QBE and AXL. [1] The Call Connector on Expressway-C integrates with Cisco Unified Communications Manager through specific APIs that allow for configuration reading and writing (AXL) and device monitoring (CTI-QBE). [1] The areas of overlap include Cisco Meeting Server, Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Service, and Cisco Jabber. [1] ” Knowledge Workers ” means your employees and contractors that use computing or communications devices capable of running Cisco Webex, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, or Cisco Meeting Server as part of their job duties performed on your behalf.

[1] Note that when you choose an on-premises or partner-hosted deployment, you will also receive the cloud service Cisco Webex Teams. [2] Easier transition to the cloud — Webex Hybrid Services help your organization take advantage of Cisco Collaboration cloud-based services without discarding your existing on-premises investments. [1] Readers of this guide should have a general knowledge of Cisco Collaboration products and services along with a basic understanding of how to deploy those products. [1] Cisco Collaboration endpoints provide a wide range of features, functionality, and user experiences. [1] Solution Reference Network Design (SRND) guides provide detailed design options for Cisco Collaboration. [1] Previously the Cisco Collaboration portfolio included two separate platforms: Cisco WebEx and Cisco Spark. [1] They incorporate a subset of products from the Cisco Collaboration portfolio that is best suited for the targeted market segment and defined use cases. [1]

If you exceed the capacity count limits associated with the buying model in your order, you will be obligated to pay your Partner (or Cisco if purchasing direct from Cisco) for such excess use. [2] If a True Forward is required, Cisco will generate a bill as part of the annual True Forward event in order to align your payment obligation to your use. [2]

If Cisco Expressway performs RTP-to-SRTP conversion, we recommend enabling it on Expressway-C instead of Expressway-E so that the traffic in the DMZ will be encrypted. [1] Primary areas of focus will be migrating off a legacy Siemens/Nortel TDM/IP environment to a Cisco UCC environment and long term support and upgrades for PCCE and UC environments. [9] A Common Area phone option is also available for the Cisco BroadCloud Calling offer offering analog phone type functionality with a minimal set of additional feature capabilities. [2] Cisco Emergency Responder exports Automatic Location Information (ALI) data in formats defined by the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), an industry standards body in the United States. [2] Cisco Unified CME meets this need by providing localized call control, mobility, and conferencing alongside data applications on Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISRs). [2] Cisco Unified CME provides call processing to Cisco Unified IP Phones for distributed enterprise branch-office environments and retail deployments.

[10] Sizing a deployment can become complex for large enterprises with sophisticated requirements. [1] According to IBM, enterprise data is expected to grow at a rate of 50x year over year through 2020. [10]

The UC Engineer will be responsible for tactical Unified Communications (UC) deployments, troubleshooting, monitoring and optimization of IP telephony, video and mobility solutions based on reference architecture established by the Unified Communications Architects. [9] The PA for Webex Hybrid Services addresses these needs with the Webex Video Mesh architecture shown in Figure 8. [1] It requires many of the same products and infrastructure as well as the architecture and planning incorporated in the PA for on-premises deployments. [1]

Table 10 lists the roles of the components in this architecture and the services they provide. [1] Provides highly skilled direction in the planning of complex networks, including logical network planning and security architecture. [9]

This technology could be used to connect users working in industries such as architecture and design. [10] The consistent user experience provided by the overall architecture facilitates quick user adoption. [1]

This architecture incorporates high availability for critical applications. [1] Figure 17 illustrates the architecture for Call Service Connect and Call Service Aware. [1]

Webex Hybrid Call Service supports multiple Cisco Unified CM clusters. [1] A key component of the Webex Hybrid Call Service is the Call Connector, hosted on the Cisco Expressway-C Connector Host. [1] We recommend deploying redundant configurations of Cisco Unified CM, Cisco Expressway-C Connector Host, and firewall traversal with Expressway-C, and Expressway-E. [1] Cisco Unified CM connects to Expressway-C for firewall traversal using SIP. [1]

Cisco Unified SRST provides cost-effective solutions for supporting redundant call control in remote branch offices and the homes of teleworkers. [2] It helps assure that Cisco Unified Communications Manager will send emergency calls to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the caller?s location, and that the PSAP can identify the caller?s location and return the call if necessary. [2] Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides an enterprise-class IP telephony call-processing system. [2] Cisco Emergency Responder enhances the existing emergency 9?1-1 functionality offered by Cisco Unified Communications Manager. [2]
