Add an MCU Pool

You can create more MCU pools if you have planned more VMRs for conference. Every conference room (VMR) is associated with an MCU pool order (either by direct assignment, via the user’s enterprise group membership, or from the system default). The pool to which an MCU belongs, and the pool order to which a pool belongs, are used to determine which MCU is used to host a conference.


  1. Go to Service Config > Conference Manager Settings > MCU Pools.
  2. In the Actions list, click Add.
  3. In the Add MCU Pool dialog, enter the following required information.
    Field Description
    Name Name of the MCU pool.
    Description Description of the pool. This should be something meaningful, such as the geographic location of the MCUs that the pool contains.
    Available MCUs Lists the MCUs available to the Polycom RealPresence DMA system.
    Selected MCUs Lists the MCUs included in the pool. The arrow buttons move MCUs from one list to the other.
