About Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU Topologies
The Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU can work in a centralized or cascaded topology. This
section describes these two options.
Centralized Topology
In a centralized topology, the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU performs media processing
for all connected terminals. The Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU can handle multiple
conferences simultaneously.

Cascaded Conferences
The Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU allows you to combine two or more conferences
resulting in a larger conference with many more participants. This is called cascading. Cascading creates
a distributed environment that helps reduce the drain on network resources. In addition, the processing
resources required by the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU are distributed between
participating MCUs. Costly telephone or ISDN line usage can be further reduced with the mediation of
a gateway.
Cascading occurs when one conference with “x” number of participants invites another conference with
“y” number of participants. The two conferences effectively become one large conference. The
bandwidth required across a cascaded conference link is only that of one audio/video stream between
the two conferences. This is significantly less than the accumulated bandwidth of all the participants.
Each separate Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit participating in a conference retains
control of its individual conference resources and participants.

•
Signaling and audio card (MCU—the upper card)
•
Video processing card (EMP—the lower card)
The two cards work together to perform audio and videoconferencing, but each card requires a unique
IP address. The cards communicate with each other using IP as the backbone.
Note
For correct operation, the EMP card must register with the MCU.
This section provides a physical description of the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU12 and
Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU24 units.
The Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit has a 10/100BaseT Ethernet port on the front
panel that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to the network. There is an asynchronous, 9-pin serial-port
that you can use with a hyperterminal program to configure and monitor the module.
Figure 2-1 shows the front panel of the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit. Table 2-1
describes the components of the front panel.

Electrical Safety
To avoid an electric shock or damage to the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit, servicing
should be performed by qualified service personnel only.
To reduce the risk of damaging power surges, Cisco recommends installing an AC surge arrestor in the
AC outlet from which the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit is powered.
Warning
Do not attempt to open the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit.
Warning
Changes or modifications to the device that are not approved by the party responsible for compliance
could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Grounding
The power cable of the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit should only be connected to a
power outlet that has a protective earth contact. Do not use an extension cord that does not have a
protective conductor (ground). The Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3515 MCU unit can become
dangerous if you interrupt any of the protective conductors (grounding) or disconnect any of the
protective earth terminals.
Caution
For North American installations, select a 3-conductor (18 AWG) power supply cord that is UL listed
and CSA certified. The cord must be terminated in a molded-on plug cap rated 125V/5A, with a
minimum length of 1.5m (6 feet) and no longer than 4.5m (approximately 14 feet).

Industry Canada
The Industry Canada (IC) label identifies certified equipment. This certification means that the
equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective, operational and safety requirements.
The IC does not guarantee the equipment will operate to the user's satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the
facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed using an
acceptable method of connection. In some cases, the company's inside wiring associated with a single
line individual service may be extended by means of a certified connector assembly (telephone extension
cord). The customer should be aware that compliance with the above condition may not prevent
degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to some certified equipment should be made by an authorized maintenance facility designated
by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment
malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the
equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the ground connections of the power utility, telephone
lines and internal metallic water pipe system, are connected together. This precaution may be
particularly important in rural areas.
The abbreviation, IC, before the registration number signifies that registration was performed based on
a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does
not imply that Industry Canada approved the equipment.
Warning
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact the appropriate
