Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (TMS)
The leader in fully managed large scale video conferencing systems is Cisco Systems, for the same reasons that Cisco is the leader in larger Unified Communications and data network systems. All the systems are designed to work together, be manageable, secure and reliable. Cisco has changed all that with the integrated video conferencing infrastructure, which is named Cisco TelePresence.There are four main applications that the Cisco Telepresence system uses to make video conferencing a seamless experience. These applications are usually installed in in the primary datacenter. The four main elements are:
- Cisco TelePresence VCS Control – Cisco VCS Control
- Cisco TelePresence VCS Expressway – Cisco VCS Expressway
- Cisco Telepresence Management Suite – Cisco TMS
