Cluster Multiple LifeSize Bridges for High Availability
With LifeSize Bridge, there is no worry about port availability
or downtime. LifeSize Bridges can be connected via a
high-availability clustering license, which allows multiple
bridges to act as a single device. If there’s an outage or
failure, another bridge automatically takes over. Clustered
bridges are easy to manage, as they have one administrative
interface and one dial plan for end users. Plus, there’s no
additional hardware to purchase and install.
LifeSize Bridge creates the world’s highest quality and most
true-to-life collaborative environment. We invite you to see
the difference.
