Implementation of a local Vidyo Router

Project Description

The request was initiated by Gawie le Roux on 22 November 2016.

“A while ago prof Frikkie asked me and Hennie to investigate the possibility of hosting a local VidyoRouter to cater for our internal Vidyo meetings, similar to Adobe Connect that we host internally. I have spoken to Rob Bristow, the main Tenet lead on the Vidyo service. According to him, we will need a virtual server to run the VidyoRouter. There will be no licensing cost involved, as Tenet has chosen a Vidyo licensing model that depends on active lines and not the amount of VidyoRouters.
Please find attached the VidyoRouter data sheet. I would suggest that we opt for the VidyoRouter VE 100 (allowing up to 100 concurrent HD connections) that requires 8 X vCPUs, 8GB vRAM, and 50 GB vDisk.”

Project Discussion 3 Responses to Implementation of a local Vidyo Router

  1. Hennie has sent emails to the Infrastructure team regarding the specifications of the virtual server(s) required to configure a local Vidyo router. Hennie is still awating feedback regarding the mails sent.
    In the meantime, a discussion on this topic raised the possible requirement to host a local Vidyo router on each campus. This will become more necessary if a decision is taken to move to Vidyo as the NWU’s primary video conference platform.
