TANDBERG Software History
Introduction
This document is intended to provide an overview over the various software versions and products from TANDBERG. Each TANDBERG
software release is named with a letter to describe and categorize the various software/hardware groups then followed by the main software
version number with the software patch number as an extension (e.g. C3.2 which is a software for the C hardware group 3rd release patch
number 2).
Each software version is briefly described with features and helpful comments in a table format. The various software versions are highlighted
differently according to the nature of the software revision.
e.g.
B3.0
July 2001
B2.4
May 2001
Entirely new software platform, with functionality upgrade – provided free of charge when system covered by a service
contract.
‘dot’ revision with minor changes to improve functions or cases, sometimes including limited new functionality (maybe
only one special feature like a requested ISDN protocol etc) – covered warranty and normally free of charge if you have a
software version which has the same main number, e.g. B2.x

• Parallel dial in on ISDN (already supported on IP)
Parallel dial in to the same conference on ISDN. (requires that a PRI range is configured).
Number of possible parallel incoming ISDN calls => (numbers in the PRI range) – (number of conference dial in numbers).
EXAMPLE:
– PRI range: 67117701-67117710 => 10 numbers
– One number per conference => 3 dial in numbers
– (10-3) = 7 parallel incoming calls are supported.
• PRI range and Hunt Groups
H.323
• Improved ”on screen” indicators in IP calls (as supported in E2 endpoints and GW):
– Site Naming
– Mic Off indication
– On Air indication

– Global enable/disable setting
• Automatic switch to H.263 if:
– Not supported by conference participants.
– More than one conference session (not supported with multi conferences).
– Using other layouts than Voice Switched and CP4 mode.
AUDIO
• G.722.1 (24 kbps/32 kbps) in IP calls (same as in E2, software for TANDBERG codecs):
– From 64 to192 kbps: G.722.1 -> G.728 -> G.722 -> G.711
– Above 192 kbps: G.722->G.722.1->G.728->G.711
Ensure high quality audio at lower bandwidths:
– Disable G.728 per conference
– will force G.722 instead of G.728 on lower bandwidths: 16xG.728 sites + 16 telephones (previous limitation of 7 G.728 sites removed)
• Outgoing H.323 audio only calls will count as audio sites.
– Incoming H.323 audio only calls depends on signaling from the calling site.

• “#” allowed when dialing IP Aliases
VIDEO
Improved People + Content Support
• Support added for Enterprise People+Content on ISDN (the IPower and/or Viewstation FX endpoint must connect via ISDN to the MCU)
• Transmit and Receive is now allowed (requires FX ver. 5.0/ IPower ver. 5.0)
• D2.3 will pass CIF, 4CIF, VGA, SVGA, and XGA as the duo source if possible. (People + Content is OFF by default)
MANAGEMENT
UDP Checksum on/off
• This is used to alleviate some issues encountered with FVC equipment.
• Data port command is: udpcheck <on/off>
- When UDP Checksum is on (default), D2.3 will discard packets, which fail the checksum.
- When UDP Checksum off, D2.3 will not discard these packets..
HLC
• Some systems do not like to see HLC in the setup messages. So for compatibility in these rare instances, we allow for this to be disabled.
• Data port command is: isdnprot hlc <on/off>
- on: send HLC
- off: do not send HLC (default)
ISDN Alert on all Channels
• Some ISDN switches require ALERT messages for all channels on incoming calls. This command will send alerts on all channels instead of the first
channel as we do by default.
• Data port command is: isdnprot alert <on/off>
- on: we will send ALERT for all channels
- off: send ALERT for the first channel only (default)
Legacy Mode
• To accommodate older video systems that may have trouble with our modern capabilities, a legacy mode has been added.
• There is now an on/off setting in the web page which turns the “Legacy Mode” on/off. (default is off)
• Along with the webpage setting, there are two corresponding data port commands as follows:
- conftemplate legacylevel <0..15>
- confsettings legacylevel <CONFERENCE ID 1..3> <0..15>
0 - No capabilities removed. This is default.

SOFTWARE OPTIONS :
• Upgrading from standard (version 8+8) to 16+16 can be easily done by entering Software Option keys:
8+8 : 8 video endpoints + 8 audio (i.e. total of 16) - Standard
16+16 : 16 video endpoints + 16 audio (i.e. total of 32)
INTELLIGENT CALL MANAGEMENTTF (ICM)
• Calls from data rates of 56 kbps up to 2 Mbps via ISDN networks. If the ISDN network drops channels during a meeting, the conference will not shut
down but adjust to the remaining number of available channels5: ‘DownspeedingTF’ (accordance to the BONDING Mode 1 standard).
ASYMMETRIC CALL RATES
• The TANDBERG MCU supports asymmetric call rates. Various sites may call into the MCU on different call rates. The MCU will however transmit a
call rate (to all participants) equal to the site with the lowest incoming call rate. If the conference is set up for a specific call rate and one or more systems
only support lower call rates, the MCU will transmit the lowest common call rate, but still allow for receiving the initial set call rate from the other sites.

If a site, not supporting encryption, is calling into an encrypted conference, a snapshot will be displayed informing that the conference requires
encryption.
If a site connected to an encrypted conference starts sending unencrypted data, a snapshot will be displayed informing that the conference requires
encryption and the site will be disconnected from the conference.

• all endpoints must give the correct password to the MCU to join the conference. The password must be numerical.
1) Password entered together with the MCU number
E.g. with MCU number=207987654 and password=1234, the number to dial by the endpoints will be 207987654*1234.
2) Password prompted after the MCU is called (sound or picture prompt)
In this case, the TANDBERG MCU sends a TCS-1 message to the terminal right after the terminal has called the MCU. When the endpoint (telephone
or video) receives this message, it will prompt the user for the password (sound or picture prompt).
3) Password prompted after the MCU is called (DTMF tones)
The endpoints may also insert the password via their remote control (DTMF) to get access to the MCU.
