In line with Cisco’s goal of a single Edge solution across the Cisco Meeting Server and Cisco Expressway, Cisco plans to end of life the Meeting Server H.323 Gateway component. From version 2.4 of the Meeting Server software, there will be no further bug fixes for the H.323 Gateway component. The H.323 component will be removed from the Meeting Server software in a future release. Customers are encouraged to start evaluation of the more mature H.323 Gateway component in the Cisco Expressway-C, and plan their migration over.
Any H.323 endpoints registered to Expressway-E or Expressway-C will not consume Rich Media Session (RMS) licenses when calling into the Cisco Meeting Server from Expressway version X8.10 onwards.
