Cisco TMS Licence

Cisco TelePresence License: Telepresence conferences are most effective – and most often attended – when they can be set up easily. With Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (TMS), you don’t need to be concerned with the equipment being used or where people are located. To schedule a meeting, you tell Cisco TMS which rooms you want to use and how many people will be joining the meeting. Cisco TMS will automatically book the conference rooms and necessary ports for your conference.

To help invite participants, Cisco TMS integrates and searches directories and external information sources. It also integrates with Microsoft Exchange with Outlook clients so users can book Cisco video meetings using existing workflows. As a self-service solution, Cisco TMS helps lower your video conferencing costs and increase user satisfaction. Schedule, Control, and Manage Your Cisco TelePresence Conferences.

Cisco TMS provides scheduling, control, and management of Cisco TelePresence conferencing and media services infrastructure plus endpoints, enabling you to improve productivity, reduce costs, and increase return on your Cisco TelePresence  investments.[ www.cisco.com]
