HDX 6000 - Adding multipoint and PSTN connectivity

What are my options for adding multipoint functionality to a HDX 6000 ?

I'm looking at between 3-6 participants in each call. The clients will be Lync.

 

It seems thet the HDX MPPlus Multipoint Software License isn't available for this model.

Is this a hardware limitation or just a licensing decision  ?

 

 

If I want to add PSTN connectivity ( probably multiple ISDN2 BRI circuits) what's the best way to achieve this?

 

Thanks.

Oops, typo in that first sentence:  The HDX 6000 does NOT contain an internal MCU.

The HDX 6000 series does contain and internal MCU, so it's a hardware limitation. But with Lync integration you can leverage the Lync AVMCU for multi-party calling.

 

Simply purchase an RTV Options Key for the HDX which will allow the unit to join native Lync multi-party calls hosted on the Lync Server's AVMCU.  Note that these calls will be limited to VGA video resolution with single-person active speaker view.
