Cisco TelePresence Manager is essential for delivering the full value of a Cisco TelePresence meeting solution. It collects information about Cisco TelePresence systems from Cisco Unified Communications Manager and associates those systems to their physical location as defined in Microsoft Active Directory and enterprise groupware. It also automatically collects information about multipoint capabilities, and allocates those resources when needed, allowing you to schedule both point-to-point and multipoint Cisco TelePresence meetings from your Microsoft Outlook or IBM Notes calendar. That schedule is automatically sent to the Cisco TelePresence systems involved in the call. You can launch your Cisco TelePresence meeting with the push of a button, by simply selecting your meeting from the list of meetings shown on the Cisco Unified IP Phone in the meeting room.
