How to connect to a LifeSize® UVC Transit™ Server
telyHD Pro features built-in support for the industry standard SIP protocol, enabling straightforward registration to a SIP registrar
server as well as SIP URI dialing. Here’s an overview on how telyHD Pro users can register to join a LifeSize video network and connect to LifeSize videoconferencing systems.
Connecting to a LifeSize UVC Transit Server is simple. Just use the telyHD Pro on-screen controls to navigate to the SIP configuration card and input the parameters for your specific network. You may need to obtain domain and other information about your video network from your administrator.
Depending on your network configuration, you may need to open ports
in your firewall configuration used by telyHD Pro for SIP communications.
- Outbound Destination Ports:
- Inbound Listening Ports:
- SIP: ports 5060-5061 (TCP)
More information on ports and protocols used the telyHD Pro can be found in the Quick Start Guide and on the Tely Labs Support site. To configure your telyHD Pro appliance to join a LifeSize UVC.
