RealPresence Clariti for Microsoft Ecosystem Workflow

This section introduces a typical RealPresence Clariti for Microsoft Ecosystem workflow in the company environment.

Scheduling a Meeting

The users are connected to the internal LAN of Company A, work from home offices, or connect to the meeting through the internet. A user schedules a conference using Outlook, including other participants or a room-based resource. The invitation uses an email signature or pre-defined template and includes instructions for joining as a Skype for Business client, internal or external endpoints and clients, browsers, or phone.

All endpoints or clients of Company A are directly registered to the Skype for Business front-end server, Skype for Business edge server, Skype for Business online, RealPresence DMA, or RealPresence DMA Edge of Company A. External Skype for Business environments need to be federated with Company A.

The users can attend the scheduled meeting by several methods:

  • The Skype for Business users can click Join the Meeting from within the invitation.
  • Workflow Server enabled endpoints or clients can join the meeting by clicking Join within the calendar entry.
  • Other room-based systems or registered clients can establish an audio or video call to the meeting.
  • Room-based systems (SIP registered only) can establish an audio or video call to the meeting through the Virtual Entry Queue (VEQ).
  • External standards-based endpoints can join the conference by dialing the Skype for Business conference ID through the RealPresence DMA Edge.
  • External guests can join the conference by using RealPresence Web Suite for web-based conference access using tunnel and nontunnel modes.

Dialing in a Meeting by Personal VMR

All endpoints or clients of Company A are directly registered to the Skype for Business front-end server, Skype for Business edge server, Skype for Business online, RealPresence DMA, or RealPresence DMA Edge of Company A. External Skype for Business environments need to be federated with Company A.

  • All users establish an audio or video call to the VMR.
  • External standards-based endpoints can join the conference by dialing the VMR through the RealPresence DMA Edge.
  • External guests can join the conference by using RealPresence Web Suite for web-based conference access using tunnel and nontunnel modes.
  • Password protected VMR meetings and joining the VMR meeting as a chairperson are supported.

Network Quality Assurance

The meeting packet loss can be expected up to the following rates:

  • < 1% for endpoints and clients calling from the internal LAN of Company A
  • < 5% for endpoints and clients calling from a home office
  • < 10% for endpoints and clients calling in through the internet

Network delay for individual connections can be up to 400 ms.

Dynamic bandwidth allocation can be expected from home office and internet users.
